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!
Books I Bought This week
The Woman Who Kept Everything by Jane Gilley
I’ve seen some great reviews of this book and the title appeals to me (anyone who’s read my Marie Kondo post will get why!) so I grabbed a copy this week!
My Sister, The Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite
This is novel that I keep seeing everywhere I look so I simply had to treat myself to a copy! It sounds like such a good read and I can’t wait to get to it!
The Forgotten Hours by Katrin Schumann
This was my Kindle First pick for this month and it sounds like an interesting read.
Rock Needs River by Vanessa McGrady
There was the option to pick two Kindle First picks this month so this was my second choice. I do love non-fiction and this one caught my eye!
Books I Received for Review
Hard Pushed by Leah Hazard
I’ve seen this book being talked about on social media and as I love medical memoirs I requested it on NetGalley and am really looking forward to getting to this one.
The Day We Met by Roxie Cooper
This is another book that I keep hearing about and was undecided about reading as everyone says you need tissues as it’s a tearjerker but in the end I just really want to read it and am glad to have a copy. Hopefully I’ll get to it soon.
Don’t Turn Around by Amanda Brooke
I was thrilled to be emailed about this book and offered a copy as I’ve enjoyed previous novels by the author. This one sounds thrilling and fast-paced and I’m looking forward to reading it.
Chickens Eat Pasta by Clare Pedrick
I’m taking part in the blog tour for this in a few weeks time and am delighted to have the audio book to listen to and review. This sounds like such a lovely read.

OMG i loved My sister the serial killer (my review is up today) and I think I could be a contender if not my book of the year already! Hope you enjoy ❤️
I used to work with Beverly Allitt (the nurse who killed all the patients)’s aunt so I’ll be interested to see what you make of the serial killer book!
Nice haul! Here’s my link for this week: https://thesecretlibrarysite.wordpress.com/2019/01/26/stacking-the-shelves-26-01-19/
You have some fine books there, Hayley. Some of those titles are really appealing. There’s just something about the title Chickens Eat Pasta that gets my attention!
You always find such wonderful books that I seem to have missed. Great new haul!
So many tempting books. I am leaning toward The Woman Who Kept Everything. I am fascinated by hoarders, and to prove that I am not one, despite my daughter’s label a few years ago, I’ve been reading a lot of the fiction and nonfiction about the disorder. Yes, I did have a lot of books and collections…but it’s not the same! I protested too much?
Enjoy your week, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES
Just received an ARC of Slayer by Kiersten White. As a huge Buffy fan I can’t wait to get stuck into it!
I think I picked those same ones for Kindle First, Hayley! I hope you enjoy all of these and look forward to your reviews!
My Sister, the Serial Killer is great! Hope you enjoy it 🙂
Some great looking books. I really need to get busy and read My Sister the Serial Killer, I’ve heard such good things!!!
I bought a book about the Brixton Academy even though I was looking in the shop for book SHELVES and had just had my birthday …
