Stacking the Shelves (172)

Posted May 14, 2017 by Bonnie in Sunday Book Haul / 4 Comments

I’ve gotten a bit lazy with my weekly posts! I’m exhausted practically all the time lately and usually by the time I realize that I don’t have a post for the next day, I’m usually in bed and good luck getting me up. I haven’t been spending my weekends getting stuff ready for the week and I need to get back into the groove of that so I have some posts ready to go in advance and not just the night before. πŸ™‚

I realized I keep forgetting to share my BOTM pick from April (lol, my May box is already en route.) I haven’t read it yet because I haven’t been quite in the mood yet but I’m very excited to get around to it.

I (of course) pre-ordered ACOWAR (and also took the day off work just to read it). Sadly, it was a bit of a disappointment for me. I picked up Wedding Girl on sale for Kindle and an Agatha Christie. My library checkouts are a bit random. I don’t often read Non-Fiction but I have always been fascinated by the Tudor time period. What led up to the Tudor time period? Well, that’s my current obsession. I’m currently reading The Wars of the Roses and I absolutely love it. I’ve since added a crazy amount of fascinating sounding histories to my TBR because apparently it’s quickly become my thing. I’m all ears for recommendations. πŸ™‚

  1. I am sorry ACOWAR was a bit of a let down. I know how much you were looking forward to that. I haven’t even been tempted to buy it which makes me wonder if I just need a break from Maas-saturation.

    I used to read a lot more nonfic than I have lately. I’ve been getting back to it … and have to admit Tudors have always been one of my big draws. The Plantagenets are also fascinating (plus they are part of the inspiration for ASOIAF. Starks/Yorks v Lanniser/Lancaster)! Both these books are now on my TBR.

    • Uggghhhh yes. So much sad. I totally get you too.. I even took off the future Court trilogies she has planned because I’m just not sure anymore.

      I had no idea that was the ASOIAF inspiration!!! That’s fascinating but I can totally see it now. Hope you enjoy those! I haven’t started The Plantagenets yet because I’m slowly absorbing The Wars of the Roses. I can’t zoom through NF like I can Fiction. πŸ™‚
