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!
Oh dear, my plan to reduce my TBR has gone slightly awry as I’ve accumulated a few more books already this year. Oops! Here are my new books…
Books I Bought This week
No More Plastic by Martin Dorey
I’m becoming increasingly aware of the amount of plastic packaging in our home so am keen to read about what I can do to make changes. This book was a little disappointing in that it didn’t really tell me anything that I didn’t already know. Where it was good though was that it was inspiring in the way it gives you ideas of how you can begin to make a difference in just two minutes.
Turning the Tide on Plastic by Lucy Siegle
This book was recommended to me after I read the previous one and it feels like it’ll be more in depth and a good follow on read. I’m hoping to get to this soon.
The Chalk Man by CJ Tudor
I’ve wanted to read this book ever since it was first published but I’m a total wimp and wasn’t sure if I would enjoy reading it. Anyway, I wanted to try out the new kindle book gift giving option so I bought it for my husband. I’ve since read the first few pages and I’m definitely going to read it too at some point soon.
Will to Live by Rachel Amphlett & One to Watch by Rachel Amphlett
I saw Rachel Amphlett tweet that the first three of her Kay Hunter novels were available in a boxset on kindle for just 99p so I snapped it up. I already had the first one on my TBR so I’m even more keen to read it now I have the next ones queued up ready for me to get to them.
The Truths and Triumphs of Grace Atherton by Anstey Harris
I’ve seen some really lovely reviews of this book over the last week or so and couldn’t resist ordering a copy. It arrived yesterday and I can’t wait to read it!
Books I Received for Review
Senseless by Anna Lickley
I’m always drawn to novels that explore a life-changing situation that happens to the main character so this book really appealed to me. I’m going to be on the blog tour for it in February so I’ll be reading this very soon.
Queenie Malone’s Paradise Hotel by Ruth Hogan
I adored Ruth Hogan’s first novel, The Keeper of Lost Things, so I couldn’t resist requesting this one on NetGalley.
Twisted by Steve Cavanagh
I read and loved Thirteen last year so have been eagerly anticipating Twisted! This definitely won’t be on my TBR for long!
My Last Lie by Ella Drummond
I’ve had this book on my radar for a few weeks as it’s from a new publisher and it sounds like my kind of read. I was then delighted when I was offered a review copy and a place on the blog tour next month.
Beautiful Bad by Annie Ward
This book sounds brilliant, I feel sure it’s going to be one of those impossible to put down books and I can’t wait to get lost in it!

Nice haul! My Stacking The Shelves post is going to look very bare this week as I haven’t bought any books.
This is a great-looking haul, Hayley! I really like the mix of different sorts of books you have, and I look forward to what you have to say about them.
Hayley, this is a terrific haul! Now I want the new Ruth Hogan and Anstey Harris’ new one too! I am on the blog tour for Ella Drummond’s book too! I hope we both love it! Enjoy all your new reads!
All of your books look tempting, and they are new to me. Thanks for sharing, and enjoy your week.
I’ve heard a lot about the plastics book. I read The Chalk Man last year, It’s pretty well loved but didn’t work for me. Hope you love it as well as the rest of your haul.
NIce haul. I picked up the Rachel Amphlett books as well. Great deal.
Very nice haul! I like those mysteries. I’ve been reading a bunch of mysteries, suspense and thrillers this month. Kind of on a roll with them. LOL
I liked The Chalk Man but I felt there was something missing. I also got Twisted and I’m dying to read it! xx
Nice haul !
Have a great day !
I also bought the three books by Rachel Amphlett for 99p and I’m looking forward to getting stuck into this new to me series.
I’m also trying to reduce the amount of plastic I use! I read Pacifica by Kristen Simmons this weekend. It’s a dystopian book that’s eerily real, as there are basically islands of trash, almost no wild life, limited resources etc. It was an amazing YA novel that also really made me think about the environment!
Enjoy your new books!
My STS post!
