(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 two new ebooks:
The One by John Marrs
I’ve seen reviews of this book on quite a few blogs now and so couldn’t resist pre-ordering it. It has such an intriguing premise and I hope to get a chance to read it very soon!
A Year Lost and Found by Michael Mayne
This is one of the books that Susan Hill wrote about in Howards End is on the Landing and it sounded like a really interesting read. It’s about how Michael Mayne approached living with a diagnosis of a chronic illness and is apparently an inspiring read. I immediately went to added it to my wish list and the noticed it is free to borrow for Kindle Unlimited members so I downloaded it straight away.
I also bought two new audiobooks from Audible:
A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson
This was a daily deal one day this week and as I’ve previously loved other books by him on audio I thought I’d give this one a go. It was a bargain at £1.99 and I hope to listen to it soon.
The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell
I’ve been wanting to read this for a while and as I’m enjoying listening to longer audio books at the moment I decided to get this one with one of my Audible credits this week. I’m hoping I’ll be able to follow this alright on audio.
Books I received for review:
The Last Act of Hattie Hoffman by Mindy Mejia
The publisher contacted me to ask if I’d like to read and review a copy of this and after reading the synopsis I immediately said yes. It sounds like a great read and I’ll be reading it during February ahead of publication in March.
The Breakdown by B.A. Paris and Sometimes I Lie by Alice Feeney
Both of these books arrived in a surprise package this week and made my day. It’s always lovely to receive book post, especially when it’s a surprise! I was badly wanting to read both novels so they definitely won’t be on my TBR for very long.
A Line Made by Walking by Sara Baume
I was also contacted by the publisher about this book and I agreed right away. It arrived a couple of days ago and it’s a lovely hardback book and I can’t wait to read it!
I also won a giveaway for a gorgeous proof copy of This is How it Always is by Laurie Frankel. I was thrilled when I was picked to receive a proof of this book as I was really looking forward to this book being out so I could get a copy, and also the proof is beautiful. My photo in no way does it justice but it really is stunning!
