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

what’s the buzz: weekly round-up and book haul

It’s been such a crazy busy week, I’ve hardly had a minute’s peace! Time just seems to get away from you sometimes. Apart from being super-busy at work, I’m not been up to much at all lately. Every night it’s pretty much just been collapsing with exhaustion – no joke. I was glad to see the weekend that’s for sure (always happy to see the weekend, to be fair). 😉

Went to see Jaws yesterday. Our local cinema quite often shows older films and it’s a film I’ve always wanted to see on the big screen. Even though I could pretty much recite the entire script (I’ve seen it so many times) it felt new again. I loved every minute of it especially the later scenes with the three men on the boat – it’s always been my favourite part of the film… especially the scene where Quint is telling the tale of being on the USS Indianapolis – literal chills… 🥶

The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden | The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden | The Winter of the Witch by Katherine Arden | Devil Take Me by Rhys Ford et al.

I already own the Winternight trilogy but it was on sale for Kindle so I couldn’t resist (I love my physical books but it is so much more convenient having books on my Kindle).

Love, Chocolate and Beer by Violet Duke | The Secret Son by Joan Kilby | Unplugged by Sigal Ehrlich | Imperfect Love by Isabella White

Again, some contemporary romances – I’m not normally a fan but can’t get enough of them at the moment! I’m normally a fantasy gal all the way but I think I’ve read more contemporary than anything else so far this year…

Lastly, I also got a couple of thrillers, a little science fiction yarn and an urban fantasy/paranormal romance anthology. Not a bad wee haul, if I do say so myself… 😉
