Stacking the Shelves (6): February 9, 2019

Stacking The Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews and is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts, and of course ebooks!
I keep thinking that we are in March because I definitely need this year to go by so much faster. I am still ahead of my reading schedule and goals for this year, but I can already feel myself falling behind!

How's everyone doing with the readalong for THE FIFTH SEASON by N.K. Jemisin?

"Let's start with the end of the world, why don't we?"⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ //⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'm kicking off a new feature here on @booksandladders, #SFFFridays! Science Fiction and Fantasy Fridays introduces readers who are unfamiliar with the adult SF/F genre to the expanse of the world of Adult SF/F! To kick off this feature, I am giving away a copy of THE FIFTH SEASON by N.K. Jemisin and will be hosting a buddy read in February! To enter: like this post. For extra entries, share in your story (1) and tag a friend who would be interested (1). (Giveaway is international, ends January 25th, no giveaway or private accounts, must be age of majority in your country of residence, not sponsored by Instagram)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ //⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is the way the world ends. Again.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Three terrible things happen in a single day. Essun, a woman living an ordinary life in a small town, comes home to find that her husband has brutally murdered their son and kidnapped their daughter. Meanwhile, mighty Sanze -- the world-spanning empire whose innovations have been civilization's bedrock for a thousand years -- collapses as most of its citizens are murdered to serve a madman's vengeance. And worst of all, across the heart of the vast continent known as the Stillness, a great red rift has been been torn into the heart of the earth, spewing ash enough to darken the sky for years. Or centuries.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now Essun must pursue the wreckage of her family through a deadly, dying land. Without sunlight, clean water, or arable land, and with limited stockpiles of supplies, there will be war all across the Stillness: a battle royale of nations not for power or territory, but simply for the basic resources necessary to get through the long dark night.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ //⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Day 4 of #janinbooks19 & #janbookstagram19⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ //⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #booklover #bookworm #bookstagrammer #booknerd #bookaddict #bookishlove #bookcommunity #bookwormlife #bookgram #igreads #readersofinstagram #bookstagramfeature #goodreads #bookishcanadians #bookishfeature #books #bookstagram #ireadya #iloveya #yalover #yalovin

  1. If I happen to fall behind on my reading schedule this year, it would be a "good" thing in the long run because it means I found myself a better job! While I'd love to be able to read more, I'd also like to be able to earn more money to have my own place!

    Hope you enjoy your new read!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so stop by then if you can!

    Have a GREAT day!
