What did you add to your stash this week?

Happy Reading!


  1. After my dry period lately (in opposition to the weather!) I had a bumper crop this week:


    Blood on the Tracks - Railway Mysteries edited by Martin Edwards
    Joe Country by Mick Herron
    The Doll Factory by Elizabeth Macneal
    One Good Dead by David Baldacci
    Machines Like Me by Ian McEwan
    Elevator Pitch by Linwood Barclay
    My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante
    You'll Never See Me Again by Lesley Pearse


    The 8.55 to Baghdad by Andrew Eames
    The Silk Roads - A New History of the World by Peter Frankopan
    Clear Bright Future - A Radical Defence of The Human Being by Paul Mason
    Invisible Women - Exposing Data Bias in a World Designed for Men by Caroline Criado Perez

    1. I am actually impressed that you didn't haul MORE! Looks like some great reads, I think I have the Silk Road one on my TBR. And of course I will be adding Invisible Women to the list!

    2. Just wait until I go crazy in April!

      I knew you'd pick on Invisible Women. If I was female I'd be livid pretty much 24/7 to be honest....

    3. Oh dear. I better start deleting a ton of books from my TBR to make room for whatever you are going to find!

      Honestly, it is really fucking exhausting and I am pretty livid most of the time. But, I can't give in to that exhaustion and take a break for a couple reasons: 1) I will make this world a better place for my daughter, and 2) my privilege as a white female allows me to occasionally take that break. My Sisters of color never have that choice and I will not leave them to fight alone.

  2. 5 books in as of last Saturday. All from the library (which is now closed for the duration, so glad I picked them up that day!)
    From Russia With Love, Ian Fleming
    The Complete Novels of Carson McCullers
    Those Who Love by Irving Stone-1965 bestseller
    Hotel by Arthur Hailey-1965 bestseller
    Akin by Emma Donoghue-for a reading group that has since been postponed.

    1. Our libraries closed as of today as well; good thing you got your books when you did!


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