I usually do a weekly wrap-up and stacking the shelves post in one but I’ve decided to separate them so I can focus on each one individually. I may end up combining them again in the future but for now, my stacking the shelves post will be posted on a Saturday and my weekly wrap-up will be posted on a Sunday.
So, here goes…
(Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews, which is all about sharing the books that you’ve acquired in the past week – ebooks or physical books, and books you’ve bought or borrowed or received an ARC of.)
I didn’t post a stacking the shelves post last week so all the books in this post are ones I’ve received over the last fortnight.
This week I received a gorgeous print copy of Ghostbird by Carol Lovekin. I’m going to be reviewing this book for the blog tour on 21st March so had already been sent an e-copy but it was really lovely to received a finished print copy in the post too.
I was also approved for a couple of titles on Net Galley this week:
Everything Love is by Claire King (I completely and utterly adored The Night Rainbow so I can’t wait to start reading this one. I feel sure I’ll fall in love with it just as much!)
The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena
I was contacted by the lovely author Sarah Painter to ask if I’d like to review her forthcoming book In The Light Of What We See, which I was thrilled about so I have a net galley copy of this to read too.
I also bought some more new books this week but in fairness I did still have some money left on a gift card from my birthday so I don’t think these purchases really count…
The Perfect Girl by Gilly Macmillan
Missing, Presumed by Susie Steiner
What She Never Told Me by Kate McQuaile
Perfect Days by Raphael Montes
Cure: A Journey Into the Science of Mind Over Body by Jo Marchant
13 Ways of Looking at a Fat Girl by Mona Awad
These Days Of Ours by Juliet Ashton
Sweet Home by Carys Bray
Crush by Eve Ainsworth
Tony Visconti: The Autobiography by Toni Visconti
The Girl in the Ice by Robert Bryndza
Lost Memory of Skin by Russell Banks
The following books were in a recent Kindle sale:
Kindred Spirits by Rainbow Rowell
Here We Stand: Women Changing the World compiled & Edited by Helena Earnshaw & Angharad Penrhyn Jones
Cruel Summer by James Dawson
A Book for Her by Bridget Christie

Just a few then…
I know, I know… but I did have birthday money left to spend and I’m sure it’s in the rules somewhere that book purchases don’t count if you have a gift card…! 😉
Wow. That’s quite a lot. 🙂 I look forward to hearing your thoughts on ‘What She Never Told Me’. I read about it somewhere, and was intrigued. I love your list. 🙂
I got ‘H is For Hawk’. ‘The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society’, and ‘Wave’.
My February Wrap-Up is here if you missed it: http://worncorners.com/2016/03/01/february-in-books/
Have a great March.
I know, I was spending my birthday money from a few weeks ago though so I don’t feel too bad.
I hope to read What She Never Told Me very soon as it sounds so good, I’ll definitely review it once I’ve read it.
I’ve heard so many great things about H is for Hawk, it’s on my TBR but I’ve not read it yet. I hope you enjoy all of your new books. I’ll go look at your February Wrap-Up post shortly. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
That Tony Visconti book will be a fun read!
I think so too, I can’t wait to read it.
I simply have to get s copy of the Gilly Macmillan! Missing Presumed is a fab read and all of your choices look great!
I hope to read Missing, Presumed soon – I bought it as soon as it was released but because I’ve been in such a reading slump I’ve not read it yet. I treated myself to the Gilly Macmillan with the last of my birthday money – I enjoyed her debut so much that I just couldn’t resist it!
Wow! That’s quite a haul!! I haven’t heard of any of these but I hope you love them!! Happy reading 🙂
Danielle @ Life With Two Boys
Thank you – I had a huge splurge with a gift card I had got for my birthday! 🙂
Some fantastic books.
CRUEL SUMMER IS THE BEST BOOK IN THE WORLD! I PROMISE, I LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT, AND I HOPE YOU DO TOO! YAYY!
Ooh I really can’t wait to read it now! 🙂 Thanks so much for stopping by.
Ahhhh. I want to read A LOT of these books. I hope you enjoy them!
Thank you, it was nice to be able to treat myself with my gift card.
There’s some range here! Must admit the only one I’ve seen before is The Girl In The Ice, which I have at the mo, but some of them look very interesting, in particular the three thrillers, the Rainbow Rowell (as still have to read Landline), The couple next door just for the title, and Monsters (why have such a children’s book cover for a murder mystery? Hmm!) Good idea splitting the posts and happy reading:)
The Rainbow Rowell is a novella for World Book Day so will be a short read. I’ve never read any of her books before so I thought this would be a good taster.
The cover of Monsters is what intrigued me too – even though it’s like a children’s book cover there is something about it that really gives me the creeps! I’m keen to see what the book is like.
Thanks so much! 🙂
So Many books 😍 I have Kindred spirits on my TBR. 🙂
I know, I really splurged this last couple of weeks but it was birthday money so it doesn’t really count! 😉 Kindred Spirits looks like a great short read so I hope to read it soon.
Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
WOW! That’s a lot of books – but kind of OK since that haul is for two weeks, right? I hope you’ll enjoy all of them.
Have a wonderful weekend and happy reading.
Exactly! 🙂 Plus almost all were bought with birthday money so it doesn’t really count as spending! 😉
Hope you have a great weekend too.
Planning to get that Juliet Ashton book soon! And I read Kindred Spirits and loved it so so much, just wished that it was a bit longer. 🙂 Have a wonderful weekend!!
Here’s my STS: https://bookishsya.wordpress.com/2016/03/05/stacking-the-shelves-4/
It’s currently 99p on Kindle in the UK so I couldn’t resist buying it – especially as it was on my wishlist.
Great to hear that Kindred Spirits is a good read, I hope to read it very soon.
Thanks for stopping by my blog, hope you have a fab weekend too.
That’s quite a haul! These are all new to me except The Girl In The Ice which I’ve been tempted to get myself! Hope you enjoy them all 🙂
I know – I had birthday money to spend so I had a real splurge over the last couple of weeks. I’ve been wanting to read The Girl in the Ice for ages so hopefully it’ll be good. I hope you enjoy it too if you decide to get it. 🙂
Lots of tempting books! I am also wanting The Perfect Girl. Enjoy your week, and thanks for visiting my blog.
So many wonderful books! Perfect Days and 13 Ways of Looking At A Fat Girl look intriguing to me. Have a great week.
