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

Blackberry and Wild Rose by Sonia Velton

I’ve seen some great reviews for this book, and it has such a gorgeous cover, that I couldn’t resist treating myself with some birthday money this week. I’m really looking forward to getting lost in this book.

Normal People by Sally Rooney

I couldn’t get on with Conversations with Friends at all, I think perhaps I’m just too old for that book but Normal People really appeals to me so I decided to treat myself to a copy. I’m hoping it lives up to the comparisons reviewers are making to other books that I’ve loved!

Educated by Tara Westover

This book has been on my radar for quite a while now so when I spotted it in a kindle deal earlier this week I snapped it up. I hope to get to this one quite soon.

London Triptych by Jonathan Kemp

I bought this book on a whim – I’d not heard of it before I saw it but when I read the blurb I knew I wanted to read it.

The Rules Do Not Apply by Ariel Levy

This is another book that has been on my radar for a while so when I spotted it in the kindle sale I grabbed it.

This Will Only Hurt a Little by Busy Philipps

I was a big fan of Dawson’s Creek back in the day so this memoir has caught my eye a few times now and I finally decided to buy it!


Mary’s Household Tips and Tricks by Mary Berry

This was an impulse by in a book sale this week! It appeals to me since I’ve decluttered as I still feel like I need to be better organised in some aspects of my home (mainly my very small kitchen!).


Books I Borrowed

‘Kill the Black One First’ by Michael Fuller

I borrowed this on my audio book subscription this week and am listening to it now. It’s a tough listen at times because of the appalling way he was treated at times during his career as a police officer but it’s also a fascinating book. I recommend it.

The Girl Next Door by Phoebe Morgan

I got a copy of this book to read on Pigeonhole but there’s no way I can read on my phone at the moment so I was delighted to find the book on my audio book subscription and I’ve devoured it! It’s such a good read, I definitely recommend it.


Books I Received for Review

Welcome to the Heady Heights by David F. Ross

I love the sound of this book so was delighted to be sent a copy, I’ll definitely be reading this one very soon.

The Conviction of Cora Burns by Carolyn Kirby

This book has been on my eagerly anticipated list so I was thrilled to be sent a copy and an invitation to be on the blog tour. I’ll be reading this one in the next week or so, I can’t wait!

I Know You Know by Gilly Macmillan

I love this author’s novels so am really happy to have a copy of her new book on my kindle. I don’t think this one will be on my TBR for very long!

The Neighbour by Fiona Cummins

I also love this author’s writing so am really keen to read this book as soon as I can. I adore the cover of it, there’s something very creepy about it!

  1. You have quite a book haul, Hayley! I’m so glad you’re treating yourself to books you want. Sometimes, getting a book on a whim can be a good thing. And, as always, I do like the variety of books you’ve chosen.

  2. I’ve had a quiet front on book buying the last few weeks but I’m almost certain it’s not going to last, aha! The cover of black berry and wild roses is so pretty!! Happy reading!

  3. I haven’t been able to read The Girl Next Door by Phoebe Morgan on my phone with Pigeonhole either because of my contact lenses 😦 I received a bunch of Orenda babies and I’m looking forward to reading them, as well as The Boy In The Headlights by Samuel Bjork! Happy reading 🙂 xx

  4. Nice, Hayley. I spy about six of these that I’d like to read too. Thanks for sharing. It’s always such fun to visit and find some more great reads through this featuret!

  5. Great haul! The cover of Blackberry And Wild Rose is gorgeous and I Know You Know sounds great! I hope you will enjoy these.

  6. Look forward to hearing what you think about Normal People – I wasn’t as bowled over as the rest of the world I’m afraid, but I know a lot of people who have loved it.

  7. I want to check out The Girl Next Door. You have some really great thrillers here. Enjoy all these awesome books. I was also a DC fan back in the day. Who didn’t love Joey? Have a great week.
