Stacking the Shelves (7) – 5/29/2021

Weekly Wrap-Up

This has been a pretty slow reading week for me. I’ve been a bit tired and have had trouble focusing. I got some housework finished and spent a lot of time vegetating. But I honestly don’t even know what I did with most of this week…other than buy some new books.

Amazon Purchases

Amazon sucked me in with an offer this week. I bought four new ebooks so that I could get some credit back to buy even more ebooks. I’ve had my eye on each of these books because I’ve seen great things about all of them. The credit was just the perfect excuse to pick them up. 😊

Library Acquisition

I used Hoopla this week to borrow this new (to me) audio book. I’ve wanted to read this one for a while, and I was excited to see the library had the digital audio available. I’m already approximately a quarter of the way through it, and I’ve enjoyed it so far. It has made me laugh a lot, and the interaction between the main characters is adorable.

Barnes & Noble Purchases

I went to B&N this week specifically to pick up these two books. I think I did good on this trip considering I walked out with only what I intended to buy.

Final Thoughts

Overall, I’m satisfied with what I’ve added to my shelves this week, and I’m looking forward to reading it all. I’m also excited that there are no new galleys to report. Maybe my NetGalley feedback ratio will actually rebound at some point.

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!

Weekly Wrap-Up

This has been kind of a weird week. I went a little crazy with the book buying even though I didn’t mean to. I’ve just been feeling a little off, and getting the new books made me feel better. I’ve worked a lot this week. It seems to come in waves, and there was quite a bit to do. Next week should hopefully be slower, and I’m thankful for it. The weather this week has been whack with a ton of rain and gloomy, humid days, which meant less time outside in the sunshine. However, I did get a lot of reading in this week. I finished an audiobook and read three novels. Overall, I’ve enjoyed what I read this week, and I’m looking forward to sharing my reviews of them with you all.

Amazon Purchases

I snagged a couple free ebooks on Amazon, Breakaway and Of Blood and Fire. I also ordered the hardback versions of Carry On and Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell. I read these two Simon Snow books after checking them out from the library. I liked them so much I wanted my own copies, and I plan to re-read them before the third book comes out in a couple of months.

e-ARC Acquisition

I only downloaded one new eARC from NetGalley this week. So, my ratio should hold steady because I finished one NetGalley eARC this week, as well.

Library Acquisition

I made another trip to the library this week because I just could not wait to finish off this trilogy. I picked it up a couple days after finishing the last one, and I finished reading it yesterday. I’ll be sharing my thoughts on it within the next couple of weeks.

Barnes & Noble Purchases

I didn’t even try to stay away from B&N this week. I went looking for The Shadow of the Gods by John Gwynne and ended up buying all of the remaining Grishaverse books too. Oops. The cashier asked if I wanted to buy one of their reusable totes, and I got one of those too. I figured I would need it given how often I’m carting books out of there…
