Stacking the Shevles (12)

"Stacking the Shelves" is a weekly feature hosted by Tynga's Reviews
I, once again, did not buy very much this past week. It's really this whole abroad thing. I don't have space to schlep lots of books home and I'm not all that interested in e-books. Unless they're on sale. And the book in question isn't one I would normally buy full price in print anyway. So here are the few on sale e-books I bought this past week!


1. Destroy Me by Tahereh Mafi
I just started Shatter Me yesterday and I'm already 200 pages in. Imma need to read this one SOON.

2. Violins of Autumn by Amy McAuley
I love historical fiction. And, don't take this the wrong way, I love WWII. As in, I find it to be a really fascinating topic. I don't know as much about the British side of things (I know A LOT about the Holocaust, to be sure), but I'm always game to read any book set in this era.

3. Dirty Little Secrets by C.J. Omololu
HOARDERS? I want to read this please. And then I'll pass it to my friend who loves that TLC show.

The title alone reminds me of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. I don't think I actually finished that series, but I did enjoy what I read, so I'm exciiiited.

THE WEEK IN REVIEW




On Wednesday I told you guys how excited I am for Born of Illusion by Teri Brown to come out.

Thursday I said goodbye to The Goddess Test series by reviewing The Goddess Inheritance by Aimee Carter.

And then on Friday, I cried about how complicated genres have become. There are many gifs involved.

That's it for my week. How did yours go? Let me know in the comments below!

  10. Okay, I laughed out loud at the "don't take this the wrong way, I love WWII" because I LOVE books about WWII/Holocaust but never know how to say that without making it sound like I love the events themselves. Like, no y'all, I just like reading about them.

    1. I like LEARNING about the events and I like reading historical fiction about the time. It's hard to find the right way to express that, though. I went to Poland in senior year of high school on a school trip. When I got back people asked me how it was and I was like: "Fun! No. Uhm. Er. Wait. Scratch that - it was educational?" I don't know. How do you even talk about that stuff?
