Hello and welcome to Stacked, a weekly (usually) post where I discuss what books I’ve recently bought, borrowed or received.

Hello again! As you guys know, I am currently in the process of moving house, which means I have been purging a lot of books. This means that I’ve been actively trying to to acquire any new books until my move is complete. This week though, I let myself go back to the library to get a couple of things. I figured it couldn’t hurt too much and if I only checked out a couple of things. This is what I came home with.

Imprudence (The Custard Protocol #2)
by Gail Carriger – This is the second book in the Parasol Protectorate spin-off series featuring Alexia’s daughter Prudence. I finished the first book only a couple of weeks ago and really enjoyed it. I hadn’t bought the second book yet but spotted this in the new release shelves.

The Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher (audio) – I, like many, was devastated when Carrie Fisher passed away earlier this year. This book was already on my to-read list but moved up a bit after her death. I got the audiobook version from the library which, so far, has proven to be quite entertaining and I am enjoying learning more about the early days of Star Wars.

What new books have kept you up reading lately?

  • Happy 2017 Thuy! Hope your move is going well. I may be moving myself soon!

    Hope you enjoy The Princess Diarist! I really enjoyed listening to it, as well as her book Wishful Drinking. It’s interesting hearing about her Con experiences and fan interactions, isn’t it?

    Good to hear the Carriger series is enjoyable. I’ll need to try it sometime!
    Hope you’re having a good week :)

    • Hi Lucy! Hope the year is going well so far. Where are you moving to? Will you still be in the area? I am just moving a few miles away which is nice. I hope you’ll still be in LA. I haven’t read any of Fisher’s writing but may have to go back after this one.

      • We are looking at Oregon actually. Ugh Moving is hard but it will be nice to have a change. Hope you’re excited about your move and your new place :)

        • Oregon is very beautiful and it’s probably a little more affordable than CA. Does this mean no more Comic Con or does it mean family vacation to San Diego? I hope you find what you’re looking for. Moving is definitely a little scary and traumatic (even to just a few miles away!) but I hope that you guys have a smooth time, wherever you decide to go. And hopefully we’ll still get to meet up in San Diego again one day.
