(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 4 new print books:
Take Courage: Anne Bronte and the Art of Life by Samantha Ellis
I added this to my wish list as soon as I first heard about it so was thrilled this week when I spotted the hardcover online for the bargain price of £4.99 this week. Anne Bronte is my favourite writer of the three Bronte sisters so I’m very much looking forward to reading this.
The Unseen World by Liz Moore
I’ve heard a lot about this book online recently and it sounds really intriguing so I couldn’t resist buying it. I don’t think this will be on my TBR for very long.
People Who Watched Her Pass By by Scott Bradfield
I got this book second-hand after seeing a YouTube video about it recently. I hope to read it soon.
Bel Canto by Ann Patchett
I can’t believe that I’ve somehow never read this book before – it’s one of those that I’ve always been aware of and always meant to read and yet it’s stayed on my wish list. I finally bought a copy this week and hope to start reading it in the next few days.
I also got 2 new ebooks:
Commonwealth by Ann Patchett
I hadn’t realised until I wrote this post that this is the second book by this author that I’ve bought this week. I couldn’t resist this one when I spotted it on the Kindle daily deal earlier this week and I’m really looking forward to reading it.
Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly
I keep seeing the trailer for the new film that’s based on this book and it looks really interesting. I immediately looked up the book and when I saw it was available on Kindle, I bought it. I’m sure I’ll be reading this book very soon.
And 5 new audio books:
Burial Rites by Hannah Kent
I already have the kindle version of this book but although I’m keen to read it it never seems to reach the top of my TBR. The Audible version was a daily deal this week so I decided to get that and to try listening to it.
The Long Room by Francesca Kay
I’ve been wanting to read this book for a while now so when I saw it was in the recent BOGOF offer on Audible I decided to get the audio version. I don’t think it’ll be too long before I listen to this book.
Wild Swans by Jung Chang
This was the second book I got in Audible’s BOGOF offer. I bought this book when it first came out but I never finished reading it so I’m really keen to start it again.
1984 by George Orwell
As I had lots of Audible credits I decided to get the audio of this book too. I’ve read 1984 a couple of times in the past but the audiobook has great ratings and as I wanted to read it again I thought I’d try the audio.
The Selfish Gene by Richard Dawkins
I chose this as the second book in the BOGOF deal with 1984. I’ve had this book on my wishlist for ages now and thought it might be a good book to listen to.
Last night my husband came home from work with this book to cheer me up as I’ve had a crappy week… the title alone made me giggle as I’m terrible for complaining about wrongly used apostrophes on shop signs. I can’t wait to read it.
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.
