* comment and TELL me what you have acquired for your shelves recently

Thanks for stopping by :-)


  1. I've been reading books based on their covers and blurbs, borrowed from the library, and have gone through more than my usual number. On a reading roll, that is.

  2. I haven't watched Fincher in a while. Love the look of Her PErfect Life too.

  3. The Michaelangelo art would be lovely to see. Fun sweet tooth find.

    I've heard that Miss Buncle series is fun.

    Have a good week!

  4. The Michelangelo exhibit looks wonderful.
    Nice library finds - as usual for you. :-)
    Have a good week and Happy Reading!

  5. I do love the Sistine Chapel, so I'm a big fan of any exhibition that brings it closer! 'My Heart is a Chainsaw' is so high on my TBR, I can't wait to get my hands on it. I hope you enjoy the audiobook and that you have a lovely week :)

  6. My Heart is a Chainsaw looks creepily fabulous, and Zodiac looks like good viewing! Happy reading!

  7. I loved Her Perfect Life. I hope you have a great week, and thanks for visiting my blog.

  8. We have a Paper Source right in our town; thanks for reminding me to check them out for my planner! I usually just buy their beautiful paper for my origami projects.

    The books I’ve received are all translated literature, my most beloved genre, so they don’t appeal to everyone. But one of them, Planet Clay, is on the long list for the 2021 National Book Award!

  9. I've heard some good things about My Heart is a Chainsaw, I'm hoping I can give it a try soon. Happy reading!
