Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks! The meme is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and Reading Reality.
This week started a bit rough because Monday was my grandmother’s 99th birthday, and I was missing her a lot. Even 11.5 years after her death, it still gets to me. I felt very sad while writing my Why I Read post, but seeing so many people read and like the post made me feel like her legacy is living on. So, thank you all so much. The week got much better as it went on. I’ve read a couple books and got a lot of book mail, which you’ll see a little further down the post. I also participated in my first blog tour, which was exciting and so much fun. I enjoyed seeing everyone else’s reviews and getting to interact with new people! I’m excited to see what this next week brings and am looking forward to the books I have slated to read.
I snapped a photo of the last of the book mail for this week with its packaging. I picked up all of the Heartstopper books that are currently out from Amazon. I checked Volumes 1 & 2 out from the library and loved them so much I wanted to own a copy for myself. Also, the library didn’t have Volume 3 yet…and I didn’t want to wait.
I also received all 20 books of the Star Wars: Jedi Apprentice series in the mail during the past week. Hunting them all down was an expensive endeavor since they are all out of print, but I am excited to re-read them. I loved the series as a kid, and my copies of the books were destroyed in a hurricane. I can’t wait to go on adventures with Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon again…even if they aren’t canon anymore.
Barnes & Noble Purchases
I picked up two books from Barnes & Noble this week. I’m so excited about Star Wars: Doctor Aphra. I loved the comic, and the book is supposedly an expanded version of that story from Doctor Aphra’s perspective. So, I can’t wait to read it again. I also bumped into The Children of D’Hara by Terry Goodkind. I’ve been a fan of the Sword of Truth series for a while even though I haven’t finished it yet. I was happy to run into this collection of previously published stories, and I look forward to getting to them when I finally finish the series.
I got a few new ARC eBooks from NetGalley and BookSirens. I got Dark Farm by Dean Raven and The Other Side of Magic by Ester Manzini from NetGalley. I also received the audiobook of Not My Ruckus from NetGalley. I’m looking forward to reading each of them. I got my newest book from BookSirens, as well: The Relic Spell by Jimena Novaro.
Overall, I’m satisfied with what I’ve added to my shelves this week, and I’m looking forward to reading it all. Have you read any of the books I picked up? If so, what did you think? Are any of these on your TBR? Let me know in the comments below!
