Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and Reading Reality, which is all about sharing the books that you’ve acquired in the past week!

I’ve acquired some new books in the last couple of weeks so I decided to join in with Stacking the Shelves today to share my book haul!


F*** You Very Much by Danny Wallace

I’ve been wanting to read this book ever since I first heard about it so I bought it on kindle last week and am already reading it. Initially it wasn’t quite as good as I hoped it was going to be but it’s definitely living up to my hopes now I’m a bit further into it.

The Listener by Rachel Basch

I bought this after it was recommended to me this week and I’m really looking forward to getting to it.

How Music Got Free by Stephen Witt

This book has been on my wishlist for ages and I finally bought a copy this week. Ive heard really interesting things about this book so I’m curious to read it.

The Things We Learn When We’re Dead by Charlie Laidlow

I saw a fab review of this book on Ali – The Dragon Slayer‘s blog a little while ago and the book has been swirling around in my head ever since so I finally decided to download a copy for my kindle. I hope to read it soon.

The After Wife by Cass Hunter

I saw a few people tweeting about this book on release day on Thursday and when I looked the book up I was so intrigued that I had to buy it.

To The Bridge: A True Story of Motherhood and Murder by Nancy Rommelmann

This was my Prime choice for June – I spotted it on a recommendations email from Amazon and decided to make it my pick for the month. I’m not sure when I’ll get to read this but hopefully soon.


The Reading Room by Fenella Gentleman

This book has been on my radar for a few weeks so I was thrilled when a blogging friend sent me her copy. I am really looking forward to getting lost in this novel very soon.

Vox by Christina Dalcher

I have seen this book all over social media and have been so keen to get my hands on a copy. I was super excited when my NetGalley request got approved this week and I can’t wait to get started on this one.

In Bloom by C. J. Skuse

I read and loved Sweet pea when it came out so I actually squealed when I got approved on NetGalley to read the follow up novel! I will definitely read this one very soon, it’s already calling to me from my TBR mountain!

A Patient Fury by Sarah Ward

I’m going to be reading this book very soon as I’m on the blog tour for the paperback release next month.

Jar of Hearts by Jennifer Hillier

I’ve heard about this book on some of my favourite blogs in the last couple of weeks so I couldn’t resist requesting it on NetGalley. I’m so happy to have been approved and this is another book that I plan to read very soon.

You Were Made for This by Michelle Sacks

This is another book that I kept seeing on twitter so I requested it on NetGalley. It sounds like a fascinating novel and I’m eager to read it soon.



Did you get any new books recently? I’d love to know. Have you read any of the books in my book haul? Are there any that you recommend me getting to sooner rather than later? Feel free to leave a link to your own Stacking the Shelves post in the comments! 🙂

  1. Great haul, looks a bit like mine, haha, I have Jar of Hearts, To The Bridge and In Bloom to read.
    Vox is brilliant, I’ll keep and eye out for your thoughts on that one!

  2. You’ve got some excellent books there, Hayley! I’m especially happy that you’ve got A Patient Fury in your list. Sarah Ward is a very talented writer, and I’m quite sure you’ll really enjoy her book.

  3. I won F*** you very much on NetGalley this week and also acquired a copy of “The Testament of Loki” from a fellow blogger, which means I need to buy “The Gospel of Loki” and possibly the other ones in Joanne Harris’ series – oops!

  4. Jar of Hearts is stellar! You are in for a treat 😉 And I hope to start Vox next month. I am trying so hard to wait until closer to release date, but it is calling me. I have seen nothing but good praise for The Things We Learn When We Are Dead so I am eager to see your thoughts on it as well. Happy Reading ❤

  5. I have a copy of The Things We Learn When We’re Dead by Charlie Laidlow but I haven’t felt like reading it, yet. Mood reads! Today I bought a few books at the local bookstore (and got drunk with Pims xD No one told me this was a strong alcoholic drink!!!) I got Death in Dulwich mainly because this is where I live, haha, What You Want to See, The Man on the Middle Floor, The Anxiety Cure for my project to read and give my opinion on anything anxiety-related, Lullaby that I haven’t read in French despite Leia Slimani being French, and a freebie, The Tall Man! I’m going to have to buy a second suitcase between this, the Orenda Books, and Harrogate! xxx

    • I’m a mood reader too so I know what you mean. I’ve read The Man on the Middle Floor – it was a really different read but I thought it was great. It’s one of those book that’s stayed with me and I still think about. I hope you enjoy it when you get to it. I loved Lullaby – it seems to have got mixed reviews but I thought it was brilliant. You’re definitely going to need another suitcase! xx

  6. Some really interesting books in your latest haul! I have not acquired any books lately because my family has put a moratorium on more books in the house – so I’m going to read what I have for now! (I may sneak in a few Kindle books, though 😉 )

  7. I’ve also got The Things We Learn When We’re Dead. As a review copy too. I have GOT to put it on my short list. Everyone says it’s so good.

    Nice haul! I haven’t really requested on NetGalley for aaaaages.

    • You’re going well to not request on NetGalley, I need some of your willpower! I don’t browse on there anymore but every time I go on to leave a review something seems to catch my eye.
      I hope you enjoy The Things We Learn When We’re Dead, it does sound really good.
