Stacking the Shelves with a new #bookhaul (4 Aug 2018)!

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!

The Psychology of Time Travel by Kate Marcarenhas

I was offered the chance to read this book by the publisher recently and I can’t tell you how excited I am to read it! I’ve heard such great things about it and I’m keen to read it as soon as possible.

Trap by Lilja Sigurdardottir

This was a lovely surprise in the post a few days ago from the lovely Orenda books. I loved the first book in this series Snare (you can read my review here if you’d like to) so I’m thrilled to have the second book arrive. I’ll be reading this one soon too.


Him by Clare Empson

I requested this book on a whim when it was recommended to me on NetGalley and I was delighted when I got approved. It sounds like the kind of book I’m really loving at the moment so I have high hopes for this one.

The Rumour by Lesley Kara

I read a fabulous review of this on Jill’s Book Cafe recently and loved the sound of the books so much that I immediately pre-ordered it. I then – completely coincidentally – got an email from NetGalley offering me a copy so I downloaded it right away. I don’t think this will be on my TBR for very long as it’s calling to me from my kindle already!


The Dead Ex by Jane Corry

I bought this in the kindle sale at the end of July as I loved Jane Corry’s previous novel and liked the sound of this new one. It might be a while before I get to this but I am looking forward to it.

One Click by Andrea Mara

I signed up to Kindle Unlimited again this week as I was offered three months free so when I spotted this book on there it was the very first book I downloaded. I actually started reading it last night and am really enjoying it.

Hag-Seed by Margaret Atwood

I’m a huge fan of The Tempest so have been wanting to read Atwood’s adaptation of it ever since it was first published. I finally treated myself to it this week and am so looking forward to reading it.



Have you got 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. Ooo… I envy you your copy of The Psychology of Time – I, too, have been hearing great things about it! And I look forward to hearing your thoughts of Hag-Seed. Unlike many others, I am not a fan of Atwood’s writing – though I know she is very accomplished, her work is often brutal and I rarely sufficiently care about her characters. This one is the exception… I loved it:). Have a lovely week with your new books, Hayley:)

  2. You’ve got some very interesting books there,Hayley. Just the title One Click intrigues me.I’l be interested in what you think of all of these.

  3. I saw The Psychology Of Time on NG and I’m SO tempted to add it to my shelves! It sounds good, although I’m not sure if it would be for me… Decisions, decisions. 😉 I hope you will enjoy these!

  4. Ooh, these sound wonderful! They are new to me, but I have read Jane Corry’s previous books, so I’m curious about The Dead Ex. And One Click sounds tempting…that cover is very mysterious. Him and The Rumour sound so dark and almost evil…LOL.

    I’ve been eyeing Hag Seed for a while. Enjoy your week, and thanks for sharing.

  5. Really enjoyed ‘One Click.’ Went on a bit of a bender on Amazon today as so many books seem to be around the £0.99 mark and got Thirteen, Her Name was Rose, Pushing up the Daisies (rom com short stories) to name but a few (meaning I can’t remember the others!) Great post 🙂

  6. The Psychology of Time Travel looks awesome. I just saw that one for the first time a couple days ago and I’m really curious to see what kind of reviews come out for it.

  7. Nice haul. You’ve reminded me I needed to put those Icelandic books on my wishlist. Some books might have come my way but maybe I’m on a different week now and it doesn’t count. Or something!
