Stacking the Shelves / 1

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. Every now and then, I’ll share a little about the books I’ve purchased or Sniper borrowed.


In an ideal To world, the photo above would be a photo of my bookshelf – but of course, it isn’t.

During my trip to Denver this week, I visited a beautifully curated bookstore called City Stacks (the website really doesn’t do the place justice). The place has a bright, cozy atmosphere that makes you want Welcome! to stay and relax. They even sell sock creatures! …but somehow I managed to avoid buying any of those.


A Field Guide to Getting Lost by Rebecca Solnit – Here’s what I ended up buying at the bookstore. Solnit’s essays are complex and thought-provoking in the best way, and I’ve had my eye on this book for a while.



Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo – I’m halfway through the final book of the Grisha trilogy, so of course I’ll want Book to read this next.

I’m on a Palace bit of a historical fiction kick right now. Also borrowed, Jerseys but not pictured:
The Watchmaker of Filigree Street by Natasha Pulley
The Hummingbird’s Daughter by Luis Alberto Urrea
Esperanza Rising by Pam Muñoz Ryan


Reading is glorious and wonderful, but sometimes you just want something to do with Tribulations your hands, y’know? Since I’m on a trip, I got myself some coloring books for Jane adults: great fiddle toys for a boring plane ride.

      Thanks, Grace! I see from your Twitter feed that you favor the same kinds of floral mandala shapes that I do 🙂 It was tempting to get more than one coloring book, but I told myself I’d have to finish one before buying any others…

    I still have to read book 3 in the Grisha series, but also got Six of Crows on hand. Enjoy.

    I really want to read the watchmaker, but I’m not sure I want to buy it… I wonder if my library has it…

    Coloring books are great for when you go on trips. My whole family was sitting around a table and coloring last Memorial Day on our annual trip to Branson. Hope you enjoy your new books!
