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!
Due to illness I didn’t manage to share my small book haul last Saturday so today I’m sharing a fortnight’s worth of new books!
Books I Bought This weekMinimalism by Joshua Fields
My love of decluttering has led me to be interested in minimalism so this book caught my eye in a recent Kindle sale!
Brainstorm: Detective Stories from the World of Neurology by Suzanne O’Sullivan
I read and loved It’s All In Your Head by this author a few years ago and found it fascinating so I’ve been wanting to get hold of her newest book for a while. I finally treated myself last week and can’t wait to read it!My Year of Rest and Relaxation by Ottessa Moshfegh
I haven’t read anything by this author before (I do have Eileen on my TBR but hadn’t read it yet) but this book really appeals to me so I treated myself.
Maybe This Time by Jill Mansell
I love Jill Mansell’s novels so was delighted when a fellow book blogger let me have her copy of this. I’m really looking forward to escaping into this book.
Books I Borrowed
Manhunt by Colin Sutton
I watched the recent ITV drama based on this book and wanted to know more. I was really pleased to spot this on my audio book subscription service to I downloaded it yesterday and am already half-way through it!
Books I Received for ReviewThe Guilty Party by Mel McGrath
I was delighted to get approved for this on NetGalley as I enjoyed Mel’s previous novel and this one sounds even better!
Past Life by Dominic Nolan
I’m super excited to have a copy of this as it sounds like my kind of book. I really hope to pick it up in the next couple of weeks as it’s already calling to me from my TBR!Are You The F**king Doctor? by Dr Liam Farrell
I’m on the blog tour for this book and am really enjoying a lot of non-fiction at the moment so I’m expecting to pick this up in the next few days.
A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole
This book was a total surprise when it arrived this week but I’m so happy to have a copy as I’ve never read it. It sounds like a book I will really enjoy so I’m keen to get to it soon.
Sleep by C. L. Taylor
I was thrilled to receive a print copy of this book as I love C. L. Taylor’s writing. I’m really looking forward to reading this and am saving it for a day when I can just sit and read it with minimal disruptions. I love that it was sent with a sachet of coffee to keep me awake and also night time teabag to help me sleep!

You always find such interesting nonfiction!! I can’t wait for your reviews of Brainstorm, Manhunt, and Are You the F**cking Doctor? I think I might want to read all of those.
Hope you’re feeling much better x
Great haul! I’ll be looking forward to hear your thoughts on Sleep as I’ve been looking for more of her titles to read after The Treatment.
Nice haul, Hayley! I hope you’ll enjoy all your new books 🙂
Have a wonderful weekend and happy reading.
What a lovely haul, Hayley! Impressive. I hope you’ll enjoy all of them, and I look forward to your thoughts about them.
I received a surprise copy of A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole. I read the beginning which talks about him not being able to publish his book and then becoming depressed and committing suicide. Such a shame as I have read chapter one and the book is very interesting.
I hope you’re feeling better…
Enjoy those books. I like the look of The Guilty Party. Here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES
Great haul – love the range of genres on offer there. I treated myself to one today which is quotes about writing from different authors that I’m hoping will be inspirational but we shall see. I hope you’re feeling better now.
Such a great bunch of books, Hayley. Sleep caught my eye. Love the cover and title. Enjoy:)
Your non-fiction selections looks interesting! I’ve been getting more into non-fiction too, and I’m really enjoying it!
My STS Post!
I love some of those books you hauled. Brainstorm and the rest and relaxation one sounds very interesting!
