See my latest book haul in this week’s Stacking the Shelves post! (18 Feb)


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!

I got 19 new ebooks this week:

The first ten of these new ebooks are all from the same publisher – the fabulous Orenda Books. Some of these I already own in paperback and others are new to me but I couldn’t resist buying them in the sale earlier this week as all were just 99p each! I’m really looking forward to all ten of these books and hope to start at least one of them during the next week.

Six Stories by Matt Wesolowski

Deep Down Dead by Steph Broadribb

Epiphany Jones by Michael Grothaus

The Bird Tribunal by Agnes Ravatn

Cursed by Thomas Enger

Blackout by Ragnar Jonasson

Rupture by Ragnar Jonasson

Sealskin by Su Bristow

We Shall Inherit the Wind by Gunnar Staalesen

Where Roses Never Died by Gunnar Staalesen



Do Not Say We Have Nothing by Madeleine Thien

This was the Kindle Daily Deal yesterday so I snapped it up as it’s been on my wishlist for a while. It sounds like quite a heavy read so I may not read it right away but as soon as my head is in the right space I will be picking this up.

Witness by Caroline Mitchell

This was available as part of Kindle Unlimited so when I spotted it I immediately downloaded it. I’m really looking forward to reading this and don’t think it’ll be on my TBR for long!

Verdict of Twelve by Raymond Postgate

I’d not heard of this book before yesterday but when I read EmmasBookishCorner’s fab review I immediately went and bought a Kindle copy. It sounds like exactly the sort of book I’m craving at the moment so I plan on reading this very, very soon!


The following six books are all review books that I received or was approved for this week:

The Summer of Impossible Things by Rowan Coleman

I was so excited to be approved for this on NetGalley this week. I love Rowan Coleman’s novels anyway but this new one sounds absolutely wonderful. I can’t wait to read it.

He Said/She Said by Erin Kelly

I’m really enjoying thrillers and crime novels at the moment so I was thrilled to get a review copy of this book. I’m sure it won’t be on my TBR for very long!

You Don’t Know Me by Imran Mahmood

I spotted this book in a recent NetGalley email and although I hadn’t heard of it before the premise sounds brilliant and very intriguing. I was so pleased to be approved to read it and plan to read it very soon.

The End of the Day by Claire North

This book sounds like a really good read so when I spotted it on the read now section of NetGalley I couldn’t resist downloading it.

All The Good Things by Clare Fisher

This sounded like a really lovely novel about reminding ourselves of the good things that we still have when life is a mess. I think it’ll be one I read soon.

Rest in Power by Tracy Martin

This is non-fiction about the life of Trayvon Martin. I first heard about it on another blog and thought it sounded interesting. The book wasn’t on NetGalley to request at the time but my wish was granted. I’m reading a lot of non-fiction at the moment so this one will be high on my list to read soon.


And 2 new audio books:

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

I already have the kindle version of this book but when I saw the audio version on the Audible Daily Deal this week I couldn’t resist. I’m really enjoying audio books at the moment so thought this would be a good one to listen to.

The Little Shop of Happy-Ever-After by Jenny Colgan

I bought this on another Audible Daily Deal this week as it sounded like a fun, comforting listen. I’ve always had a soft spot for Jenny Colgan’s novels so hope to get to this soon.



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.

  1. Wow that is quite a lot!
    I also got You Don’t Know Me and All The Good Things from Netgalley. I hope to read both next month, we’ll see.
    Thanks for sharing!

      • It really does! Unlike anything I have seen before, I think. The whole ‘I got nothing to lose, so here’s every little thing exposed’ thing really intrigues me. But the way the blurb says it will be up to us to judge if he is guilty or not makes me wonder whether there will be closure in the end. I hope so!

  2. I highly recommend He Said/She Said which has to be one of the most engaging books I’ve read in a long time so I recommend pushing that up the pile of your wonderful looking selection!

  3. Some great choices there and mine was a mini Orenda fest compared to yours! Very tempted by The End of the Day so have downloaded as it’s still on Read now, have also requested the Rowan Coleman. My sin sheet will hopefully be up tomorrow – in my defence it covers two weeks but it’s pretty bad. Happy Reading x

    • I just couldn’t resist the Orenda sale – there are so many fab-sounding books published by them. I hope you get approved for the new Rowan Coleman – it sounds like such a lovely novel. I’ll look out for your post tomorrow! 🙂 x

  4. Fab haul! I can’t wait to read ‘You Don’t Know Me.’ I’ve enjoyed every book I’ve read by Orenda so far so I may have to have myself a lil Orenda bookhaul too!

  5. Wow, 19 ebooks! 😍😍 a girl after my own book-binging heart 😂 I saw the Orenda sale but didn’t think they were available on Kindle or have I got that wrong?

    I’ve read a few of your haul – enjoy!!

  6. You did get some fantastic books! And, as always, I do like the variety in them very much. I’m looking forward to seeing what you think of them.

  7. Awesome Haul Hayley!! I bought 6 from the Orenda sale and you’ve really got me tempted to head to Netgalley and check out some of the others you’ve listed! I really need to get my hands on He Said/She Said!!

      • From the Orenda sale I got Rupture, the new Michael Stanley, both Paul Hardisty’s, The Last Days of Disco and the Sequel to that…now I have to get reading😂I’m so bummed that He Said She Said isn’t available for US readers on netgalley yet…I think I’ll have to track down the US publisher and beg!

  8. I also jumped on the Orenda Books but there were issues and I was only able to buy three, I was so gutted! I’m hoping to get more soon. I picked The Bird Tribunal, Blackout and Six Stories, so I’ll try to pick the rest of Ragnar’s books and Gunnar Staalesen’s two ones. I was approved for three ARCs too, so I’ve been a bad girl this week, haha! Happy reading! xx

    • Oh no, what a shame! I hope you manage to get the others another time. All the Orenda books sound good, don’t they? I think I’m tempted to read Six Stories first as it sounds really intriguing. What ARCs did you get this week? I didn’t expect to get approved for all the ones I requested so now I have lots of reading to do. Happy reading to you too xx

      • Knowing me, I will, haha! I got an epic fantasy book from the author I’ll be reviewing in April. It’s not a genre I’m used to so this is exciting. Then I was granted The Breakdown, The Idea of You, I found You, The House, and The One. Lots of work ahead! I admit I was sure I’d never get approved, that explains why I hit the request button a lot! xx

  9. Ooh I’m intrigued by so many of these books. I hope you enjoy them all. 🙂 Have a great weekend!
