Stacking the Shelves (569)

This week’s stack is short but very, very sweetly anticipated. Court of Wanderers and The Twilight Queen are both second books in series that I hoped really hard would be series but couldn’t be certain until just this week when these two books popped up on NetGalley and Edelweiss.

And then there’s What Cannot Be Said, the 19th book in my much-loved Sebastian St. Cyr series. I’m so happy to have this one, and so tempted to just READ IT NOW, but then I’ll have an even longer wait for book 20. I’m on the horns of a very sharp dilemma over this one.

And last but not least, today is the last day of Banned Books Week. A host of organizations that support writers and artists, including the Writers Guild Initiative, PEN America and Unite Against Book Bans, have banded together to make today 2023 Banned Books Week Day of Action to bring attention to the urgent crisis around book banning in the United States. The American Library Association has declared today to be Let Freedom Read Day. My own small action to support both of those efforts is my purchase of the audiobook of the much praised but frequently banned The 1619 Project, so that I can listen to it in time to review it as part of 2024’s Banned Books Week.

  1. It’s too bad that there has to even be a Banned Book Week but I’m glad that different bodies are coming together to try and change that. I hope that you enjoy all of your new books. Have a great weekend.
