Stacking the Shelves – a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews & Reading Reality

what’s the buzz: weekly round-up

It’s been a quiet week actually – not much happening at all really. Boring but true. Ah well, January can be a bit like that – everybody is skint after Christmas and having to tighten those purse strings. I’m no exception!

this week’s posts:

book haul

I finally (finally!) showed some restraint this week and only got a couple of physical books (well, three to be exact!) Go me!

book haul

The Harrowing by Robert Dinsdale

Only one non-vintage book this week! I am really looking forward to reading The Harrowing as the synopsis sounds so darn good – definitely need to read it asap!

book haul

The Dragon and the George by Gordon R. Dickson | Caitlin: True Love by Francine Pascal

I’ll freely admit, I picked up The Dragon and the George because it is (partly) what the cartoon Flight of Dragons was based on – which I loved as a youngling! I also picked up one of the Caitlin books, though I was hoping to get another edition…

book haul

Edinburgh Dusk by Carole Lawrence | The Girl with the Red Balloon by Katherine Locke

I was really chuffed to get Edinburgh Dusk for £1.00 on Kindle and even more chuffed to get The Girl with the Red Balloon for £0.49! What a bargain and both books I have been coveting for a while…

book haul

Blades of Magic by Terah Edun | Fighting Destiny by Amelia Hutchins

Believe it on not, these two titles were actually free on Kindle and I was very lucky to snag them while the offer was going! Both look really interesting too.

book haul

Okami by Renée AhdiehPaul Bernardo and Karla Homolka: The True Story of the Ken and Barbie Killers by Peter Vronsky

I haven’t yet read The Flame in the Mist but I picked up this short story set in the same world for when I finally do get round to reading these books (soon, very soon!) I also got this book about Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka as I am interested in true crime (and it was going for £0.99 on Kindle!)

books for review

I got rather a few ARCs on the other hand so I wasn’t totally good this week. Ah well, such is life – I am really excited by the books I was approved for so I can’t feel too bad. 😉

book haul

Bloodwitch by Susan Dennard | Never-Contented Things by Sarah Porter

I am super-excited to get approved for Bloodwitch. I’ve heard such good things about this series and I have the first two books so I am very much ready to dive in!

book haul

Diamond Heart by M.A. Hinkle | Foreign to You by Jeremy Martin

Both of these look really, really good. I am especially intrigued by Diamond Heart but Foreign to You also sounds really interesting and like something I would enjoy.

book haul

The Truth about Keeping Secrets by Savannah Brown | Vivatera by Candace J. Thomas

Again, some really interesting looking titles. I am loving the simplicity of the covers and I am particularly drawn to The Truth about Keeping Secrets.

book haul

Half-Life by Gregory L. Norris | The Wolf and the Watchman by Niklas Natt Och Dag

I can’t help but think about the game Half-Life when i see this title! 😉 I am super-intrigued by The Wolf and the Watchman – the cover is stunning…

    Ah, man. I was leaving a comment on this post and then my cats distracted me. I hope I am not commenting twice in a row. But, if I am, I promise I wasn’t trying to spam your account. Anyway. What I was saying was that you read very different things from what I normally try to read. Would you say that you gravitate towards a specific genre? How would you describe the books you’re interested in? I am a YA gal all the way but I have been trying to read more diversely (mostly still in YA land though).

    The only book on here that I also have in my TBR is Truthwitch by Susan Dennard. I read her first book in her first series and loved it. She certainly knows how to keep readers invested in her characters. I heard that friendship is pretty big in the Witch-Lands series so, I am keen on giving it a go this year.

    Happy reading!
