Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme created and hosted by Tynga @ Tynga’s Reviews. It gives bloggers the chance to show their readers books they have bought, borrowed or received during the week.
Ever have one of those months where you have no idea where the time went? So busy and yet it’s only now as I’m catching my breath that I start to realize how out of control everything was. But its calm right now.
I want to thank everyone for their helpful comments regarding which new e-reader I should buy. I decided on a Kindle Paperwhite and am glad with my choice so far.
This week I have three new additions to my library:
The Peculiars by M.D. McQuarry (thanks to Thames & Hudson)
The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stievater. I bought this hardcover because it was on sale. I’m a Scorpio myself and found myself instantly attracted to the title. I already have a paperback copy but I’m a little addicted to buying hardcovers whenever I can. There’s just something very special about them.
Almost French by Sarah Turnbull. I love reading travel memoirs – especially by Aussies who have gone to Europe. I picked this one up second-hand and am excited to read it.
In other news – I crocheted a Banana in Pyjamas for my two-year old niece. It was her birthday a few weeks ago and this is a late gift for her. She’s a little obsessed with the TV show and I thought this would be the perfect present. It turned out to be a bit of a group effort with my mum and dad helping me knit (and by help… they knitted them all!) the pyjamas and I made the banana. I’m fairly proud of how good he turned out.
