Happy Saturday guys!! Can you believe that it’s been more than a month since I did my last Stacking the Shelves post? You may ask why but probably you know the reason (if you follow my blog continuously). If not then, well, I was in the middle of packing and moving to a new city and new job. probably let’s save that talk for my monthly wrap-up post πŸ˜€

So obviously, there were quite a number of books that I got in this whole month gap. But yes, I purchased less book and also I had to ask many publishers to not sending me books during that period. Thus expect a smaller count today πŸ˜›

 

 

Purchased

The Elephant Chaser's Daughter by Shilpa RajThe Greatest Urdu Stories Ever Told by Muhammad Umar MenonParrots of Desire: 3,000 Years of Indian Erotica

Just 3. Are you surprised? πŸ˜€ I saw the Elephant Chaser’s Daughter by Shilpa Raj on Instagram with very good reviews and I decided to read it. While travelling a weekend, I saw this on Airport and instantly bought it. Since I am developing my interest in nonfiction slowly, I am excited to read this.

Aleph Books is a publisher who is recently gained my attention and is slowly becoming my favourite because of their unique title selection. You can see two of their titles right here which I purchased from different airports too (yes this past month, I have travelled a lot πŸ™ ). The Greatest Urdu Stories Ever Told by Muhammad Umar Memon is a collection of Urdu stories, as the name suggests. I haven’t read any Urdu stories before so I am hoping this to be a good read. The parrots of Desire by Amrita Narayanan is a kind of nonfiction where it evaluates the 300 years of Indian erotica. Well, I like reading erotica every now and then, so reading about their history in Indian literature should be interesting, right?

 

 

NetGalley ARCs

In Deep Water by Sam BlakeBlood Will Out by Jo TreggiariFuryborn by Claire LegrandTheatrics by Neil Gibson4 Kids Walk Into A Bank by Matthew Rosenberg

These are the books that I got from NetGalley within past month. Some of these I requested a long time before. The ARC which I am most interested in is Furyborn. It seems to be an interesting read, right?

I have linked all these covers to Goodreads so that you can check them.

 

 

Let's Chat
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?

Leave me a link to your Stack, and I’ll check it out πŸ™‚ I’ll be back soon with another Stacking the Shelves post.

    All three books you purchased sound so interesting. Especially The Parrots of Desire – I will have to keep an eye out for them. I don’t even know what books I got recently (Christmas is crazy), but I got a Patrick Modiano book from the Secret Santa project at a library.

      Yeah the Parrots of desire definitely sounds good. I hope you love your new book. I sent my secret Santa gift to someone yesterday πŸ˜€

    I was wondering maybe I’m just early and you post later and that’s why I miss you STS… but I guess you have been really busy with the moving and the wedding and all of that stuff πŸ™‚

    The Urdu stories look great! I see you also went through NetGalley πŸ˜€ but I guess it’s your entire month’s haul.. Would you believe I only hauled one book this week? Heh. I am happy about that πŸ™‚

      Haha yes it’s the entire month haul πŸ˜ƒ Yes I can believe that you hauled just one book 😜 You have done that earlier too! But yeah considering it’s Christmas, you would have gotten some gifts?? Isn’t it? πŸ˜ƒ

      1. Evelina @ AvalinahsBooks

        Nope, actually, no one ever gifts me books xD because it’s kind of hard… I mean, if you’re not a bookworm and don’t read too much ( = most people) you will know neither the bookworm’s, nor which books they either already have, or have already read. So it’s dangerous to gift books xD which is why I never receive any. Plus. Books over here are just way too expensive. Why would anyone give me one book if they can buy three other things for the same price xD

    I saw Furyborn on NetGalley. I love the cover and am interested in getting it. But I am trying to NOT request too many books. I get overwhelmed and then reading is no longer fun! I hope you have fun reading it, and all your other books.

    I hope you are enjoying your new job and living in a new city.

    I wish I had been able to get my hands on an early copy of Furyborn, but my request on Edelweiss was denied – and I can’t even ask for it Netgalley. Hope you like your new books.

    Happy readings! πŸ˜‰

    Furyborn seems to be the book that everyone wants to get their hands on. I guess you’re one of the lucky ones. πŸ˜‰
