Confessions of a Reader

'Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are.' – Mason Cooley

Stacking the Shelves [#8] & Showcase Sunday [#4]


Stacking the Shelves

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 will also be linking this up to Showcase Sunday over at Books, Biscuits and Tea.

Inspired by Pop Culture Junkie and the Story Siren, the aim of Showcase Sunday is to highlight our newest books or book related swag and to see what everyone else received for review, borrowed from libraries, bought in bookshops and downloaded onto eReaders each week.

I actually only have 4 books to share this week. The physical books were from Waterstones, after an awful experience in WHSmiths – when picking up two books on the buy one get one for a £1 deal and ringing them through the till, I was politely told that they weren’t in the deal despite being on the shelf with all the others. I was supposed to look for author names or something along those lines – it was very confusing and the sales assistant wasn’t particularly helpful so I wandered over to Waterstones, where the service is always good.

Physical Books:


Eeny Meeny by M.J. Arlidge

(Started this today, about 40 pages in and fantastic so far! Action and pace already building!)


Sense & Sensibility by Joanna Trollope
I fancied a good, girly summer read – hopefully this fits the bill!


Both of these books were Book of the Week on iTunes meaning I snagged them completely free.


Anna & The French Kiss  by Stephanie Perkins


Glass Houses (#1 in the Morganville Vampire Series) by Rachel Caine

Have you read any of these? Do any interest you? Are there any that I should bump up to the top of my list of to-be-read? I’m really looking forward to getting round to all of them! What have you purchased/borrowed/downloaded this week?

Happy Reading!
