Happy Saturday guys!! So this is the last Saturday of the first month of 2018. One month already went! Phew, where does the time go? How is your reading going until now?
I had a good start at the year start, as I said in my last STS, but then, I just slowed down 😛 I guess I become lazy. Nevertheless, as a whole the progress is good and I am happy.
Also, now I have decided to do STS posts on alternate Saturday. I don’t want to post when I have only 2 books on my list or none. Instead, I want to post a book review on alternate Saturday, because I thought that only one book review on Monday is too less and I have gathered so many reviews but have no slot free. I hope this turns out to be a better idea.
Now let’s turn to my book haul of last 2 weeks. I finally purchased my first book of the year 😀 But to my defense, it is second Agatha Christie book which I needed to buy because I have to read it next month as part of my goal of reading one Christie book each month 😀 As you might know, I recently joined Edelweiss, I got some good book from there too, after getting declined for many good ones 😛
I am glad that this time I have a great mix of fiction and non-fiction titles and the release dates of all these is quite separated so I am hoping to finish all of these easily 🙂 The Phantom Tree and The Hazel Wood are fantasy which looks quite good. The Hazel Wood is already making the hype. I got it approved pretty late (just yesterday) so I’m hoping this to be my first read of Feb. Nobody’s Girl was a backlist book but the blurb was quite interesting. It’s a memoir by a human trafficking advocate so you could guess about the topic and how intense it is going to be. The Sun Does Shine is another memoir about a man who lived in prison for who spent thirty years on death row for a crime he didn’t commit. Interesting eh?
Empress is a nonfiction about Nur Jahan, the twentieth and favorite wife of the Emperor Jahangir. I was always fascinated by her from the TV shows that I saw in my childhood. I am quite happy to get approved for this book. The Emperor of Shoes is a story set in China. I have never read such a story before so I am excited. Tiffany Sly Lives Here Now is only contemporary that I got in this collection 😛
My second Agatha Christie 🙂 I’ll read The Secret Adversary next month. After reading her first book, I am hooked on her writing.
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 in the last week of this year?
Leave me a link to your Stack, and I’ll check it out 🙂 I’ll be back soon with another Stacking the Shelves post.
