What did you add to your stash this week?

Happy Reading!


  1. I think I've considered Germania time or two, but never went for it just yet. I'm currently under an amazon/steam ban, but I did buy a copy of "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" -- the UK first edition -- from ebay. My American copy was a library discard which is falling apart, and I figured if I'm replacing it, I want to see the British edition!

    1. I read Danubia a while ago and recently picked up Lotharingia. It was only by reading that one, when the author said he was finally completing his trilogy, that I realized Germania was part of it - and the first book even. It had been on my TBR for a while now, so I figured out I might as well read them together.

      I always justify books purchases in the exact way you just did. I can justify literally, yes literally, any book purchase. It's a gift, haha

  2. Germania is on my 'interest' list too.......

    A good week for me:


    Cruel Acts by Jane Casey
    55 by James Delargy
    Sleep by C L Taylor
    Tombland by C J Sansom


    Peaky Blinders - The Real Story: The True History of Birmingham's Most Notorious Gangs by Carl Chinn
    We Have Been Hamonised - Life in China's Surveillance State by Kai Strittmatter
    The Age of Surveillance Capitalism - The Fight for a Human Future at the New Frontier of Power by Shoshana Zuboff
    Dunkirk & Operation Fortitude - Two Missions that Changed the Fate of World War II by Joshua Levine

    1. It's been on my TBR but I never connected it to Danubia or Lotharingia, the latter of which I got last weekend. Then the author mentioned Germania in the intro and I was like, duuuhhh. So now I am reading the first and last in the trilogy, at the same time.

  3. I've heard good things about Evelyn Hugo, and I read one of her previous books and really liked it. You're probably in good hands with that one. :)

    1. Good to know because I finished Never Have I Ever last night and it was terrrrrrrrible!!!

    2. It's fun when you go off on the bad ones though!!!!

    3. I am glad that others enjoy my ramblings on horrible books. I read Evelyn Hugo in one night and BAWLED MY EYES OUT FOR THE LAST 40 PAGES OR SO. It is FANTASTIC. Read it ASAP. Soooooooo good!!!

  4. Just three books in last week. I bought Fall or Dodge in Hell by Neal Stephenson as an anniversary present to me and my husband, because we both love his books. A reading group friend gave me The Last Romantics by Tara Conklin; I have no idea what it is about but I like the title. From the library I picked up Grandfather's Journey, a Caldecott winner from the 90s. It was a lovely story with fine illustrations.

    1. Nice little haul, nothing too major to topple the TBR! I have not heard of the first two, but I think I remember reading Grandfather's Journey in elementary school. I'd have to see it to be sure though.


Thanks for visiting my little book nook. I love talking books so leave a comment and let's chat!
