I’ve only just discovered Tynga’s Stacking the Shelves meme and decided that I like it already. I am so excited since this is my very first participation. This week’s haul isn’t that interesting since I’m not really keen on reading most of them. I forgot to mention that usually my finickiness always gets the better of me.
All books that I’ve gotten so far this week were either in E-book or Kindle format. Though reading a hard copy is more pleasurable than reading through your laptop’s monitor, I have to stop myself from buying more printed copies since my book drawers are really stuffed at the moment. And I just can’t figure where to put them yet, not with my mom ranting for hours because my books are invading her territory. xD
To start with, my youngest sister was kind or cruel enough to gift me an e-book omnibus of A Song of Ice and Fire by George RR Martin.
This series have been hyped up a lot but, honestly, I wasn’t charmed by ASOIAF. I was even more afraid when I’ve read several horrible reviews about it. But let’s wait and see. I might give this a try if I don’t have anything to read.
Then on Tuesday and Wednesday, I got lucky that NetGalley approved my request for these:
And just today, since I’m feeling weird and would like to break the monotony from reading the same kind of book genre, I decided to read some classics in the near future (actually, I’m starting right now). I was so glad that almost all the kindle editions of famous classics are now free at Amazon. I immediately downloaded these:
I am not really one for classics because the words used are too archaic or I don’t feel the sentence structuring. But today, I’m determined to step out from my comfort zone. As you can see, 3 out of 5 are children’s books. Oh, well because I am fond of reading books that fall under that genre plus I think it would be more comfortable to walk on an unfamiliar territory if you think the books are friendly enough. I’ve got no problem with Sherlock though because this gal is totally inlove with him. I have another volume here that I’ve been keeping ever since my high school years.
On another note, Pride and Prejudice by Jane A. is a self-dare. There are plenty of good reviews about it so I think I’m safe from getting bored or driving myself to insanity. This is the one that I am reading right this very moment 😀
What books did you get so far this week? Was your book wishlist finally completed? Or just like me, someone has sent you a very intimidating book that you just want to hide it from your sight?
Happy reading, bookies!
