Stacking the Shelves #34


Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews
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!
        
Well this was a better week! On Monday my mum got out of hospital looking a lot better after the infections and low mineral levels. On Tuesday her oncologist said that the stomach tumours are shrinking which is good news though he couldn't tell if there was any difference in the liver yet. She is getting a four week rest to let her body recover before the next three chemo sessions. We're happy with progress and enjoying not having to sit in that stifling hot hospital ward for hours each day! Thanks everyone, for your good wishes and kind comments recently!

So I'm pretty much fully rested and back on track with my reading which is great! Just a small haul this week which has allowed me to vastly reduce my tbrs, digital and physical.

  3. I desperately need the dystopian set too, heard about it from David Estes. I love dystopians and this is perfect for my winter reading, can't wait to see what you think of it <3 Thanks for reminding me, enjoy your new reads.

    1. Three of the books in the set were on my wishlist so I thought 'bargain!' and jumped at the chance! I just hope a few live up to expectations...

    1. The box set is worth grabbing for The Moon Dwellers by David Estes. I gave that bad boy a 5 star review...

    1. Most of my new buys seem to be self published or published by small companies! As long as they are good stories, I'm happy...

    1. I normally don't buy ebooks over £1 but I figured getting 10 books for £1.85 was acceptable, just this once!

    1. That's the problem when we have so many great sounding books-what to read next and when we'll get round to reading each new buy...

    1. It does, doesn't it! The only one I've read is The Moon Dwellers and I loved it. Even if I only like one or two of the other books, it's still a bargain!

    1. There's a free short story with the characters from Glacial Eyes. It's called Frat House of the Dead. Reading that persuaded me to try the series!
