How’s your Saturday, everyone? Mine was just filled with reading, and lots of it, just the way I like it. I’ll probably go out later but I’m not sure where to go yet. 🙂
Anyway, it’s time for Stacking the Shelves, which is a meme/feature hosted by Tynga at Tynga’s Reviews, showcasing physical books, e-books or audio books that you have bought, borrowed or gotten for free or reviews. Here’s my haul this week…
The Chasing Daisy by Paige Toon was a secondhand book that I got for $1. I think $1 is definitely the most amount I would pay for a secondhand book cos I just cannot justify paying a lot more for used books. But then if it’s something I really, really want, of course I would splurge. The second book, The Extraordinary Journey of The Fakir Who Got Trapped in an Ikea Wardrobe by Romain Puértolas, was the book that I got in the Bookish Bundle, a Malaysia’s own book subscription box. They just started in April and I blogged about the items that I got in the box here.
(Random question: how do you say Ikea? Is it ‘ai-key-a’ or ‘e-key-a’? I’ve heard of people saying the first one but I’ve always said the latter. I found it weird saying the first one haha)
I have never read anything from this author but I’ve heard and read good things about her, so when I saw these, I have to get it.
I told myself not to request anymore on Netgalley until I’ve gotten through at least half of the books on my list, so I had to restrain myself from requesting Summer at Rose Island by Holly Martin, which was hard because it’s one of my most anticipated book! For this one, I made an exception. I had read her other two books set in White Cliff Bay (Christmas at Lilac Cottage and Snowflakes on Silver Cove), so naturally I cannot wait to start reading this! 🙂
That’s all from me today. Hope you’ll have a good weekend ahead 🙂
