(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.)
This week I’ve bought some new books:
Distress Signals by Catherine Ryan Hyde
Distress Signals has been on my radar for ages as I’ve seen so many book bloggers tweeting about how good it is. I pre-ordered it a couple of weeks ago so was very pleased when it arrived on my Kindle this week. I want to read it very soon, hopefully I can fit it in in-between review books.
The Square Root of Summer by Harriet Router Hapgood
This is another book that I’ve seen on quite a few book blogs in recent weeks. I love YA fiction and this one sounds like it could be a little different to others I’ve read so I’m really looking forward to it.
Saving Phoebe Morrow by Herta Feely
This was an impulse buy as I liked the cover and then when I read the synopsis it sounded great.
Willow Walk by S. J. I. Holliday
This is another of my pre-orders that arrived this week and I can’t wait to read it. It has been on an introductory offer price of 99p on Kindle so worth grabbing a copy soon if you’re interested in reading it.
Where Did I go? Rediscovering My Identity, Lost After a Traumatic Brain Injury by Polly Williamson
This was an Amazon recommendation and I decided to buy it as I’m very interested in reading these kind of memoirs at the moment due to my own medical situation. I didn’t have a brain injury, but I still suspect that I will be able to relate to a lot of this book. I definitely want to read this very soon.
Books I got in the Kindle sale:
Where They Found Her by Kimberley McCreight
This book has been on my wish list for a while but I’ve been unsure whether to buy it or not so when I saw it in the sale I decided to give it a go.
The Truth and Other Lies by Sascha Arango
This is my other sale purchase from this week. I’ll be honest and admit that I bought it because the title has me very intrigued, it seemed worth a punt for 99p. I still haven’t read the synopsis as I quite like the idea of starting this knowing nothing about it.
Books I got as part of my Kindle Unlimited Subscription:
Blood Defense by Marcia Clark
This was one of the books in the Kindle First (where you get to choose one book free from a selection of six as part of Amazon Prime membership) offer in April and I was torn between this book and another one, and in the end I chose the other one. So I was really pleased when this then went into Kindle Unlimited!
Weekend Immune System by Holly Tierney-Bedford
I saw this book reviewed on a blog this week and immediately went to grab a copy. This is a like the choose your own adventure stories that were around when I was a child, and I loved those books, so I couldn’t resist this one. Apparently there are quite a few endings and not all are happy so I can’t wait to read this!
How To Throw Your Life Away by Laurie Ellingham
This is another book that I’ve seen favourably reviewed on quite a few blogs in recent weeks so I decided to download a copy on my Kindle.
Books I received for review:
SockPuppet by Matthew Blakstad
I requested this on Net Galley this week (I’m supposed to be on a self-imposed ban but this showed up on the front page when I logged in to give feedback on another book so I couldn’t resist it!) as it’s a book I’ve been so keen to read. I think it’s due to be published in a couple of weeks so I’m going to try and read and review it either before or around publication day.
Last Light by C. J. Lyons
I was thrilled to be offered a copy of this for review as I’ve seen bloggers I trust recommending it so really wanted to read it too. I’ll be reading this quite soon.
Cold Calling by Russell Mardell
I received a lovely email from the author of this book a couple of days ago asking if I’d like to review his book. I jumped at the chance as I’ve seen this book being talked about on social media and it sounded like one I’d really enjoy. I really hope I can read this soon, it’s one I’m really looking forward to.
So, that’s all of my new books from the past week. Have you bought any new books recently? Tell me all in the comments below, or if you have a stacking the shelves post on your blog feel free to post the link below too.
My weekly wrap up post will be on my blog tomorrow so please look out for that.
