Stacking the Shelves

I am incredibly pleased to have A Conspiracy of Wolves in this week’s stacks. When I finished the previous book in this series, A Vigil of Spies, it very much felt like the end of the series. And I was sad to see the end of Owen Archer’s story. But now he’s back, and I’m really looking forward to picking this one up!

Let’s see. Amazon had a sale, sorta/kinda. Audible had a sale, definitely. And here we are with the stack of my legally gotten gains. So many books, so little time! But…this is a three-day weekend in the U.S., so maybe just a bit more time.

Have a great holiday weekend!

I know, I know, I already had an eARC of The Women’s War – but it’s a big book and I was hearing good things and the so many book, so little time conundrum is becoming a force of nature. SOOO I got the audio and I’m in the middle of it and it is SO GOOD that I’ll probably switch to the eARC just to find out what happens next faster. But the audio sure does make the time on the treadmill fly by!

This week’s stack wasn’t quite so splendiferously full – until Macmillan put their Fall books up on Edelweiss on Thursday. As Tor (SF) and Minotaur (Mystery) are both parts of Macmillan, that meant that there were suddenly a whole lot of books available that were on my “anticipated” lists. As well as a few books that just plain looked awesome. As they do.

I’m also starting to see 2020 books in Edelweiss. That’s just wrong. Summer hasn’t even started yet and I’m seeing books for next winter. Too soon, too soon!

This is one of the rare times when I bought more books than I received for review. There was a sale. And I got intrigued by one of the book ads on Facebook. And a friend told me that there are more books in a world that I absolutely loved. So it’s really all her fault. Sure it is.

Ouch! This one got kind of big, didn’t it? Oodles of things came in for my committee, for a contest I’m judging, and just because they looked good. And some thing fell into more than one category – but not nearly enough!

Some of this is tsundoku, that fear of running out of things to read. While I never actually run out of things to read, I do occasionally run out of things I’m in the mood for at a particular moment. Doesn’t everyone?

Yesterday was my birthday, and I seem to be having a bit of a sad about it. I’m not sure whether it’s the birthday, that the number of birthdays is so many at this point, that the people who knew me way back when are all either deceased or no longer part of my life, or all of the above.

I guess I’ll just have to keep reading until the feeling passes!
