Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews, and is a way for bloggers to share their newest additions to their bookshelves.
I’m stacking my shelves with quite a few new additions this week, but they were all bargains in my opinion!
Lorali by Laura Dockrill
I saw this in Waterstones, and when I discovered it was about mermaids it intrigued me. I’ve actually almost finished it, and it’s definitely surprised me!
Ink and Bone (The Great Library #1) by Rachel Caine
I bought this because of the words “Great Library of Alexandria”. I actually have no clue what it’s about, but the cover’s pretty.
The Silkworm (Cormoran Strike #2) by Robert Galbraith
Blood Red Road (Dust Lands Trilogy #1) by Moira Young
Raging Star (Dust Lands Trilogy #3) by Moira Young
I’ve been interested in this series for a while, so when I saw books #1 and #3 at a charity shop, I figured they were worth getting.
The Gorgon’s Gaze (The Companions Quartet #2) by Julia Golding
Mines of the Minotaur (The Companions Quartet #3) by Julia Golding
Two more books from the charity shop. One of my favourite books from when I was younger was Dragonfly by Julia Golding, so I had to pick up these two. Now I just need to find the first book in the series…
What am I reading?
As I mentioned, I’m close to finishing Lorali and it’s definitely not what I expected. I like it though – the writing style is quite different from what I’m used to, plus it’s set in England (which is a change for fantasy books).
And on the telly?
I’m still working through Castle – I have about two episodes left of series five. I’m also watching Chuck, which is just a lot of fun.
In Other News…
- My cousin is getting married today!! While you’re reading this, I’m probably at her wedding and I bet it’s going to be a wonderful day!
- I’m on holiday at my other cousins’ house, and it’s so nice and relaxing here.
- I went camping with twelve school friends and we had a brilliant and crazy time. Definitely one of my favourite holidays, despite the fact that we all looked like tomatoes after one day on the beach!
