Stacking the Shelves #38


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!
            
As some of you might have noticed, there was no STS post from me last week. This was because of a family crisis which meant I was not online for days or buying or reading anything. This is a link to the post about what happened.

So I still haven't managed to pick up a book because we are now getting work done in the house and preparing for my mum coming out of hospital. Honestly, it has been 6 months of upheaval and a break from it would be great! *sigh* Maybe next month!!!

  1. It sounds like it's been an awful week, my thoughts are with you. I hope you get to relax with a book soon -- or just relax in general!

    1. I think I forget what the word 'relax' means! Still, she has come through that bad spell and things are better. Thanks for your kind thoughts!

  2. So sorry to hear about your mum, I hope she'll make a full recovery and you'll find the time to read soon! I spotted True Fire in Asda along with Joe Valentine and I was going to grab them both the next time I had money (Asda's £4 books are amazing) but of course they disappeared off of the shelves. I find it really annoying because some books will be on the shelves for months and then others, just a week. I can't keep up!

    Thanks for stopping by! Under The Mountain

    1. I first saw it in Asda but got it on Amazon with a dvd so I could get the free postage for orders over £10! I'm a bit concerned about the comparison to Throne of Glass as I didn't like that one...I hope I can pick up a book this weekend as I'm WAY behind!!!

  4. Aw, I hope this week is better for you. :|

    That's sure a lot of zombie reads! I like zombies, but I honestly haven't read too many. My reviews are usually met with "ew that's too gross" haha! XD Aaaand my sister looks at me weird. But I still should check out some more good ones!
    My StS!

    1. BRAAAAIIINNNSSS! Heh! Yeah I do like my zombie books though finding really good ones isn't always easy. My favourite so far is ZA Recht's Plague of the Dead, the first in a trilogy which I've yet to complete. Loved it!

  8. Hoping that your mother feels better. Hey we all fall into reading slumps. It's nothing to be ashamed of. It happens.

    1. Thanks Grace. If I could just get past feeling so tired all the time maybe I could get reading again. The books are piling up and a few more Amazon pre-orders are due to arrive...eeek!

    1. Thank you for your kind words Cindy. Yeah I hope that I can get a book of some kind looked at tonight. Once I get started on one my reading slump should pass. It's getting started that is the problem!

    1. That's the problem...too many interesting looking books! Thanks for stopping by!

  11. Lots of interesting looking books this week. I am unsure of True Fire and not sure if I am going to enjoy it or not. I haven't read Throne of Glass either so the comparison doesn't really help me. Fingers crossed that we both love it.

    1. I think I read a few chapters of Throne of Glass and just didn't get into it. I'm in two minds about True Fire but we'll see how I get on with it-when I finally start reading again!!!

  14. True Fire! Ahhh, I've been seeing it everywhere, I so have to get around to buying that soon, especially since it's from Quercus, and I've loved most of there's so far. Happy reading! :)
