stacking the shelves – a weekly meme hosted by tynga’s reviews & reading reality
what I have been up to
The one thing guaranteed to make me smile this week is unicorns! Or books about unicorns which is what I’m all about right now. I don’t think I’ve ever grown out of unicorn themed stuff to be honest. I used to plaster my bedroom walls with unicorn posters mainly from Athena – anyone remember that shop? Also got my very first Lord of the Rings poster there too. 😉
I’ve been all kinds of nostalgic this week. I went to see Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom at the beginning of the week. How crazy is it that it’s the 25th anniversary of Jurassic Park? Yeesh, I feel old AF!
Speaking of nostalgia…
vintage book haul (unicorns!)
The Tricksters by Margaret Mahy | The Eyes of Karen Connors by Lois Duncan | The Unicorn Quest by John Lee | The Unicorn Dilemma by John Lee
I’ve wanted to get my hands on a copy of ‘The Eyes of Karen Connors’ for ages and now I finally have one! I also picked up a paperback copy of ‘The Tricksters’ by Margaret Mahy and ‘The Unicorn Quest’ and ‘The Unicorn Dilemma’ by John Lee. A pretty decent haul, if I do say so myself. 😉
other books purchased (no unicorns but shifters yay!)
I also snagged this intriguing-looking series by Joel Abernathy. Shifter stories are hit and miss for me but this looks pretty good.
received for review
I remember loving Jane Yolen when I was younger so I’m happy to try another of her books ‘The Transfigured Hart’. Love the cover too!! I’m also pretty excited for ‘That Secret You Keep’.
I don’t know too much about this series but I was pre-approved for it and it definitely looks like something I would enjoy.
