Stacking the Shelves #97 - NEW SHINY PRETTIES



Hello everyone! I hope you've all had a great week!

I've spent this week packing as we're moving in TWO WEEKS - AHHH!!! I'm so, so excited for the new adventure that lies ahead. I'm so excited to be moving and I have a feeling it's going to inspire many blog posts and story ideas - which is always a good thing!

I've also been doing a lot of school but I've really enjoyed the content I've been learning this week. In physics I've grown to realise that I adore quantum mechanics. I learned about the photoelectric effect, Einstein's equations, excitation/ionisation and photon absorption. 
I found it incredibly fascinating and I'm now eager to go on a hunt for some books that will delve deeper into those topics. I've also been enjoying maths this week (???) as I'm learning about quadratics and they're far easier than the previous chapter I struggled through so yay! I'm also loving English at the moment, I had to write an article assessing the pros and cons of single sex schools and this weekend I have to write my article in argument-counterargument form highlighting the opponent's and proponent's cases regarding cosmetic surgery. I've really been  enjoying researching all the topics and writing them too. We've also found a potential English tutor so I'm really looking forward to someone reading my work and giving me feedback on how I can improve! :)

I got some exciting book mail this week too! I received three books that I'm super excited to read! I'm currently reading Alistair Grim's Odditarium and I'm quite enjoying it! I'd never heard about it before until I was contacted about reviewing it - you should definitely check it out if you're interesting in middle-grade fantasy! I also received a copy of The Railway Children by E. Nesbit which I'm super happy about. 

                                       




I was also naughty and book two books...oops. My library was having a sale and I've been wanting to read both books for quite a while so I definitely don't regret buying them, but I think it's time I go on an official book-buying ban until next year!

So these are the books I received this week! What books did you get? Do you also need to go on a book buying ban? I definitely do.
