Happy Saturday guys!! Another Saturday and another Stacking the Shelves post 😀 I missed it last week because I was travelling. And trust me guys when I am saying- I am keeping too busy these days 🙁 It’s real. I am hardly getting time to read and too less for writing post. But still, here I am 😀
So past two weeks have been good in terms of “not buying many books” 😛 But still I gathered some books from here and there. So let’s see what I managed to get these past two weeks!
Ahh, finally my copy of The Bear and the Nightingale is here 😀 It was like 2 months since I pre-ordered it and was not arriving. But now finally I can make it into my Read list before the year ends 😛
This month being the #NonFictionNovember I had decided to read at least one nonfiction and Hit Refresh by Satya Nadela was my choice. I am already halfway through it and really enjoying knowing all the secrets of Microsoft 😀 But yes this book is not for those people who are not interested in technology.
Okay, so after a few months ban from NetGalley I again hopped it and got some books. But this time I made sure that all of these are scheduled to release in 2018 which is a kind of relief? Going Places and Kids Like Us are YA books and I am hoping them to be good. Though Kids Like Us has been already released this month, I am not sure why NetGalley is showing the publication date for next year? Sea of Strangers by Lang Leav is poetry and this is my first-ever Lang Leav’s book. I am so excited for this as I have heard so many great things about Lang Leav’s poetry.
I have been motivated to read more non-fiction these days and I am hoping to read at least one nonfiction each month from next year (I hope I can achieve this 😛 ). So keeping the spirit I got this book called Anaesthesia by Kate Cole-Adams. The blurb of the book looks really interesting and I am excited to read this.
I received The Marriage Pact by Michelle Richmond just yesterday. In fact, it’s the first book from Penguin that I got and that too without actually requesting it 😛 It seems like a second edition of the book set to release in December. It seems to be a good mystery.
P.S. Most of these ARCs are available currently in ‘Read Now’ section of NetGalley so you grab them easily if you want 🙂
I am really excited to read this latest release by Bloomsbury. Demi-Gods by Eliza Robertson is something controversial I guess. A fellow blogger told me yesterday that she is not liking the book as the plot is weird, but still, I need to read it before making any decisions right? 😛
Won in Giveaway
I won this book in an Instagram giveaway about one and half months back but I received it last week. The Collected Works of Homen Borgohain is a collection of Homen Borgohain’s works, as the name suggests. This book is originally written in Assamese (Assam is a state in India and its language is called Assamese). Homen Borgohain is a renowned Assamese writer and this book contains some of his acclaimed novellas and short stories. This book has been translated by his son Pradipta Borgohain. I am trying to read some Indian literature so I am really looking forward to reading it.
So that’s it for me guys for this week. Is there any book in this list that you have read?
Is any of these books on your TBR? What have you added to your TBR?
Does your opinion about a book is affected by what others think?
Leave me a link to your Stack, and I’ll check it out 🙂 I’ll be back soon with another Stacking the Shelves post.
