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!
It was my birthday way back in January but I saved the book vouchers I got so that I could treat myself to some lovely books later in the year (it’s always nice to make a birthday gift last longer!). I finally spent the vouchers yesterday and got these three books! 🙂
S by J. J. Abrams and Doug Dorst
This book has fascinated me for the longest time as it’s a novel with marginalia that also tells a story plus it has notes and postcards and maps inserted amongst its pages. I’m so excited to sit down with this stunning book!
Spring by Ali Smith
I love Autumn and Winter so I really wanted to get Spring in hardback too so I’m delighted to have this one. It’s even more beautiful in real life than it looked in pictures so I’m happy to own this one. I plan on reading this one very, very soon!
The Girl Aquarium by Jen Campbell
I’ve been hearing about this poetry collection recently and am fascinated by its exploration of women and disability so I couldn’t resist buying it!
Purchased Books and eBooks
The Last Stage by Louise Voss
I’m a huge fan of Louise Voss (and have been since her first novel was published!) so I couldn’t resist grabbing the ebook of this while it was on offer this week. I’ll still be buying the paperback when it’s out to add to my collection!
How To Change Your Mind: The New Science of Psychedelics by Michael Pollan
I’m fascinated by how our minds work and so this book has been on my radar for a few months. I’m in the mood to read it now so decided to treat myself this week.
The Boy Who Stole Time by Mark Bowsher
I first heard about this book on Linda’s Book Bag late last year and it’s been on my mind ever since so when I spotted it this week I simply had to buy it. I think this will be an emotional read so I’ll save it to read when I’m in the right mood but I am so looking forward to getting to it.
Someone is Lying by Jenny Blackhurst
I’ve seen some brilliant reviews of this book during the recent blog tour and decided that I simply had to get a copy. It sounds like such a gripping thriller and I can’t wait to read it!
The Mother’s Mistake by Ruth Heald
I saw a fabulous review of this book on the wonderful Meggy at Chocolate ‘n’ Waffles blog this week and I immediately bought a copy! I can’t wait to read this thriller so don’t think it’ll be on my TBR for very long!
Swan Song by Kelleigh Greenberg-Jephcott
I’ve been wanting to read this book for absolutely ages so when I saw the audiobook on a deal of the day on Audible this week I immediately clicked to buy. I’m really looking forward to listening to this book!
Take It Back by Kia Abdullah
I read the blurb for this book and was so intrigued that I immediately requested it on NetGalley. I was thrilled when I got approved and I can’t wait to read this!
Forget Me Not by Claire Allan
I read Claire Allan’s first thriller and really enjoyed it so when I realised she had a new one due out I knew I had to read it. This one sounds really intriguing and I’m so looking forward to it.
The Wave by Virginia Moffatt
This book sounds so interesting – it’s a thriller set at a time when a tsunami is bearing down. I’m really keen to get to this one soon.
How To Say Goodbye by Katy Colins
I requested this book on NetGalley after reading a very moving article about the author and how she came to write this book. I think this will be a moving and also heartwarming read.

My birthday’s in January too and I try to save birthday money to spend later in the year.
Happy reading Nicki and thank you for the mention xx
Oh, look at that lovely book haul! You’ve got some great ones there, Hayley! I hope you’ll enjoy them all. And I agree: why not make the birthday magic last?
What a wonderful haul! Loved the books you picked for your birthday vouchers… I hope you will enjoy these!
Nice book haul! I’ve recently purchased Daisy Jones and the Six. It’s seems like everyone and their mother is in love with that book at the moment!
I love what you bought with your birthday vouchers, Hayley! What pretty covers! I’ve always wanted to read Ali Smith! Everything sounds lovely! I hope you enjoy all your new reads! ♥️
Such great additions to your shelves. I’m intrigued by Ship of Thesus, and The Wave sounds good.
Have a great week
I’m another January birthday person who saves her vouchers! Still saving them at the moment, however. I might have acquired Convenience Store Woman and Rebecca this week (oops).
