Stacking the Shelves is a meme held over at Tyngna’s Reviews. It is all about sharing the books on your shelves, physical or virtual. A great way to share books that you have purchased online, in bookstores, borrowed from the library, received for review or purchased as e-books.
I went to the library again today, returned four books and picked up five more! Eek, I couldn’t help myself they look so good!
1) Wedding Night by Sophie Kinsella
I love Sophie Kinsella as I have previously mentioned. I have been meaning to pick her newest novel up for a while now. I am trying to cut down on the amount of books I buy, so when I saw this in the library – I grabbed it!
2) The Watch that Ends the Night: Voices of the Titanic by Allan Wolf
I have always enjoyed learning and reading about the Titanic. My husband watches lots of documentaries about it too. Browsing the teen section I came across this, on the top shelf with the cover facing me. I immediately picked it up, then noticed that the entire book is written in verse, poems and letters. It has a pretty high average rating on Goodreads too.
3) The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black
I have heard a lot about this book on BookTube and book blogs. I read Doll Bones by Holly Black last year and although I enjoyed it I’m hoping this one might be a little more ‘grown up’.
4) Elijah’s Mermaid by Essie Fox
The spine drew me in on this one. When I picked it up off the shelf I then realised what book it was, one that has been circulating BookTube lately. It has an exceptionally beautiful cover. I don’t really know too much about it.
5) Little Bones by Janette Jenkins
I always try to pick up a book that I have heard absolutely nothing about. I picked this one purely based on its cover. It only has 6 ratings on Goodreads and is historical fiction, something I’m not used to reading. We shall see how it goes!
6) Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger
I have not read any books by this author. I actually found this at work and claimed it for free! We were cleaning out the prop and costume cupboard and a huge bag of books were destined for the charity shop, this was in the bag so I took it home with me.
Have you read any of these books? Do any interest you?
