(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.)
So, given the State of my TBR post that I shared earlier this week where I wrote about wanting to focus on reading my own books, it should probably be the case that I have no new books to show you today but, alas, I have new books.
This week I’ve bought two new books:
Electricity by Ray Robinson
I ordered this paperback book before I made my plan to read my own books and had forgotten about it. I don’t think this will be on my TBR for long as I’m really keen to read it.
A Portrait of Bowie edited by Brian Hiatt
This book has been on my wishlist since I first heard about it. I really wanted to get it in hardback but it’s around £20 so when the kindle version was a in the daily deal yesterday for 99p I snapped it up. This is another book that won’t stay on my TBR for long as it’s one I’ve been very much looking forward to reading.
Books I received for review:
Isolation Junction by J. L. Gilmour
I had a lovely chat with Jen on twitter this week and she mentioned her book as asked if I’d like to read it. I’m trying not to take on too many review books at the moment but this one really interested me so I’ve added it to my pile. Hopefully it won’t be too long before I can read it but I do have quite a few review books to read ahead of it.
Stay With My by Ayobami Adebayo
I’ve kept hearing about this book on social media and it sounds like a fascinating novel, which I’ve been keen to read. I got an email from NetGalley this week saying that the publisher had approved my request so I’m hoping to read this very soon.
I don’t think four new books is too bad, especially as two of them were really from before I decided to try and focus on my already owned TBR books. It just means I need to keep on reading in order to keep my TBR number going in the right direction! 🙂
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.
