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! Click on the link under the book to find its page on Goodreads or Smashwords.
Please note that I always leave a message on your STS/SP if you visit me, but if you use DISQUS or a similar third party I will not be able to leave a comment on your page. I don't allow any company access to my social media accounts and I certainly don't allow them to edit and take over my accounts the way DISQUS does. So if you use DISQUS, I can't leave comments on your page so I can't really follow you back, sorry! And sometimes, I have problems leaving messages on blogs hosted by Wordpress-they try to block me so there might not be a message from me some weeks or you might get a double message sometimes! Blame them, not me!
I'm finding it hard to believe that this is the middle of March we are looking at now. The time seems to be flying by too quickly. My dad and I are going to have a busy year trying to get the house fixed up. Over the last 10 years the house has become a bit shabby and untidy and we're both sick of it! So we have a lot of work to do to get things to how we want them. I have the living room which needs painting and a new carpet, the kitchen needs a proper spring scrub down and a few appliances replaced, all the shelves need strengthened and tidied to give us more space, plus the garden needs slabs laid, new gate, fence painted, plants trimmed and moved...the list seems never ending! We don't really have money to spare to hire anyone to do it so we need to do it ourselves. Ugh! Not looking forward to it! We got the hall tidied last night and everything stored neatly which was a start and I started getting my own room tidied, getting the piles of books and boxes put away neatly!
On the book side of things, it has also been busy! This was Urban Fantasy week so I tackled some books that have been sitting on my shelves for years and most will now be traded on to new homes around the country. I think I only finished one but it was a good one so that's ok. It is Imperium by Nicholas Olivo. I plan to get the next couple of books in the series with my next Amazon voucher! I also started to clear the backlog of book reviews which I'm nearly drowning in! Over the years I've taken notes on each book I read to help me write reviews later so I don't forget anything important! Trouble is, I read faster than I review so the notes are stacking up plus I've lost notes for a lot of older books which means either reviewing from memory or skimming through the books to do it again! Still it has refreshed my memory on some of the series I am planning to catch up on this year so it's not a total waste! It might be a few weeks before I get to reviewing what I read this year but once I've caught up, things will stay that way!
This weeks books are a mixture of those I grabbed many weeks ago and paperbacks purchased by Amazon vouchers! Exciting stuff!
