Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews where book enthusiasts can show off their newest additions to their collection!
I wasn’t too bad this week; but still too many books added to the TBR! 18 new books! Oooooooops! Hahahaha! However, after I collect all the little black classics, I intend to cut back MAJORLY on the buying. Plus, my ARC collection should decrease now that May is over!
- SPQR: A History of Ancient Rome – Mary Beard
I probably should have bought this in paperback but the hardcover is too divine to refuse! I wanted this from the first moment I saw it – Ancient Rome is the most interesting historical period ever!
- Why I Am so Clever – Friedrich Nietzsche
- The Yellow Book – Various
- A Modern Detective – Edgar Allan Poe
- The Nun of Murano – Giacomo Casanova
- Kidnapped – Olaudah Equiano
- Typhoon – Joseph Conrad
- The Queen of Spades – Alexander Pushkin
- Letters to a Young Poet – Rainer Maria Rilke
- The Frogs – Aristophanes
- How To Be a Medieval Woman – Margery Kempe
More Little Black Classics! I absolutely LOOOOVVEEE the tiny little snippets in these books!
- Arkanae – Lynette Noni
- Seveneves – Neal Stephenson
I bought TWO eBooks this month; they’ve been a lifesaver on my way to and from social events where I shouldn’t have a book! I really liked Arkanae and Seveneves is interesting so far – the moon has exploded!
- Black – Fleur Ferris
- The Shark Caller – Dianne Wolfer
- Black Rock, White City – A. S. Patric
This was the only book on the Miles Franklin Literary Award Shortlist which I hadn’t read, so when I saw it in the library I jumped on the chance! It was really beautiful, if rather disturbing!
- First & Then – Emma Mills
- Withering-by-Sea – Judith Rossell
This was an enormous sensation last year, and the sequel is due out just before Christmas so I really have to get on and read this gorgeous kids’ book!
What books did you get this week? Are any fantastic?
