Happy Saturday guys!! So how was your week? Mine was pretty hectic with all the office stuff but finally, my task is completed πŸ˜€ Now I can happily go on vacation for friend’s wedding πŸ™‚

But this month is not good for me in terms of reading. I don’t know why but I am not inclined towards the reading. Maybe because of tensed days? Hopefully, it gets better after I come back πŸ™‚

In spite of not reading much, I collected a few ARCs within the last two weeks (if you remember, I told in my last STS that I would now do the STS post every alternate Saturday). Let’s see what I collected.

 

 

ARCs

NetGalley

The Art of Escaping by Erin CallahanParamnesia by Brian Wilkinson

I am quite excited about The Art of Escaping. Its description on Goodreads is quite interesting and goes like this: “Told through the perspectives of the witty main characters, this funny and fresh debut explores the power of stage personas and secret spaces and speaks to the uncanny ways in which friendships transform us.” Seems interesting huh?

Paramnesia would be first ever paranormal read (yes you read it right πŸ˜› ). I have only seen paranormal shows and movies but never have actually read any book of that genre. But I am not sure how I would feel after reading this.

 

Edelweiss

Jacked Up by Erica Sage

From Goodreads: “Snarky, surreal, and insightful, Jacked Up is an astonishing debut about the strangeness of life, death, and grief, and the even stranger things we do to cope.” This definitely looks like a good read and it is also available on Edelweiss to directly download πŸ™‚

 

 

Review Copies

Gleanings of the Road by Rabindranath Tagore
I am quite excited about this book. This is my first ever review book for Niyogi publishers πŸ™‚ Also this is another one in my translated works collection. I have only read Rabindranath Tagore’s work during school time, so technically this would be my first novel of Tagore.

 

 

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 in the last week of this year?

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.

      Thank you so much 😊 I am currently in the wedding and yes it has been great so far 😊
      Yeah reading is slow but I am not taking much pressure. It is okay to just relax sometimes πŸ˜ƒ

    Isn’t it a little weird to get a review copy for Tagore, haha πŸ˜€ it’s like.. It’s been written aaaages ago. But it’s still a review copy πŸ˜€
    I haven’t hauled anything this week! There is a haul on the post, but it’s from last week xD
    I haven’t been around NetGalley so much even, so all of these things you’ve hauled are new to me πŸ™‚ enjoy!

      Yeah it is definitely weird but I guess it is the translation that is getting reviewed here πŸ˜€ And I like when the translated work of the famous authors are made available so that more people can actually read it.
      That’s good that you haven’t hauled anything this week. These are books from past two weeks so I guess, my hauling is little better πŸ˜›
      Thanks Evelina πŸ™‚

    I also requested a copy of Paramnesia from Netgalley and I already read it (hopefully, I will share my review this week). I must confess that even though the author does develop some good ideas, it was not my cup of tea. However, I hope you enjoy your first paranormal reading and love this novel a lot more than I did.

    Happy readings! πŸ˜‰

    Isn’t that feeling when all your work is done one of the best ones? I hope you can enjoy your time with your friend at her wedding – you definitely earned it. And weddings are really fun πŸ™‚ I also have recently read a Tagore book so I would be interested to know what you think of this one when you’re done with it! Great review x

    You are the… I lost count, but so many bloggers (myself included) have a hard time with reading this month! It must be something in the atmosphere (that’s what my mum always says).

    The Art of Escaping seems like a lot of fun! I have a lot of new books on my TBR including They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera, buy I am quite excited for all the new books I got last week!
