Stacking the Shelves
This wasn’t a prolific week, but it was an exciting one. I received two nearly-releases from Penguin Random House that I’m really excited to read:

Wicked and Weird - Rich Terfry       The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend - Katarina Bivald
 

Wicked and Weird – Rich Terfry
The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend – Katarina Bivald
 

I’m looking forward to Rich Terfry’s (AKA Buck 65) book. I used to listen to a lot of his music, plus he’s Canadian (represent!). I’m saving The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend because I’ve heard great things about it, and I think it would be an excellent book to read while I’m travelling later this month.

Now it’s your turn – did you pick up any fantastic reads this week? Did you raid the library? Discover some hidden gems on your own shelves? Share in the comments!


Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature hosted by Tynga’s Reviews that’s all about the books we added to our shelves over the past week. Not necessarily books I bought – also includes books I borrowed, was given or otherwise ended up with. Weeks I don’t buy any books I’ll scramble around my shelves and find some I haven’t shared in an StS post yet!

    I picked up a few nonfiction gems this week, :”Five Days At Memorial” after listening to a Literary Disco podcast episode, and “The New Jim Crow” after all the recommendations across the board! Where are you travelling to?

      Five Days at Memorial has been on my TBR for years, but I have yet to tackle it. I expect it’ll be intense! I haven’t heard of The New Jim Crow – is that the Michelle Alexander one? If so, it looks interesting – particularly after reading Ghettoside (which I’m SO far behind on… it kind of lost me a little bit). Can’t wait to read your thoughts on it. I`m heading down to San Francisco at the end of the month!

        Yes, Michelle Alexander is the author of The New Jim Crow. People were talking about it in the comments of Shannon’s recent post, and I couldn’t resist picking it up. The more distance between Ghettoside I get, the more I realize it really wasn’t what I wanted it to be, sadly. Worth finishing, but I wanted it to be better, and more. Have a GREAT time in San Fran! I’ve never been, so take pictures to share!
