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 and eBooks
Parkland by Dave Cullen
I read Columbine by this author when it came out a few years ago and it was so well-written and researched so I’ve been keen to read this book about the Parkland shootings and how the students reacted afterwards. I’ll definitely be picking this one up early in the new year.
A Faculty of Dreams by Sara Stridsberg
This has been on my wish list for a while and I decided to treat myself this week. It’s a novel but it’s based on the real life attempted assassination of Andy Warhol and follows the female perpetrator of the crime. It sounds fascinating and I’m keen to get to this one.
I Feel Bad About My Neck by Nora Ephron
I can’t believe that not only have I not read this but I also seem to have lost my copy so this is a new purchase as I really want to read this one soon.
25 Days ‘Til Christmas by Poppy Alexander
This was an impulse buy after I read a couple of fab reviews and it was a bargain at 99p on kindle this week. I can’t resist a Christmas novel (although I already have more than I can read between now and Christmas! Oops!)
Lanny by Max Porter
Grief is the Thing with Feathers is one of the first books I got for review after I started my blog and it’s a book that has really stayed with me so I was keen to get a copy of Lanny. I bought it this week and I think I need to be in the right mood to read this one but I am looking forward to it.
Christmas Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella
I’ve been so keen to read this as I love a Christmas book but I’ve found the more recent Shopaholic books not as good as the early ones. Anyway, I had a credit on Audible and I decided to download the audio book. I’ve already starting listening to this and it’s already made me laugh so this is definitely a return to form for this series and I’m so happy about that!
Peter Pan by J. M. Barrie
I’ve read Peter Pan numerous times over the years but I spotted that Audible have this free for members for Christmas so I couldn’t resist downloading it. I’ve never listened to it on audio before so I’m looking forward to experiencing it in a different format.
The Magnificent Mrs Mayhew by Milly Johnson
I really enjoy Milly Johnson’s novels on audio so when I saw this on a daily deal on Audible this week I snapped it up. I’m saving this for when I need a cosy, comfort read.
Everybody Died So I Got a Dog by Emily Dean
I’d never heard of this book before but when I saw it in the recent Audible sale and read the blurb it called to me. I’m drawn to books about grief and recovery so I think I’ll really connect to this and I’m looking forward to listening to this one.
Poetry for Christmas by Orna Ross
I’ve been really looking forward to reading this collection ever since I was offered a spot on the blog tour so I’m delighted to have a copy and I’ll be reading this one very soon.
What She Saw Last Night by M. J. Cross
I’ve seen some fab reviews of this book on the blog tour so I requested it on NetGalley and I got approved yesterday so I’m thrilled to have a copy of this. I plan on reading this soon.

You’ve got some great-sounding choices, Hayley. The Stridsberg especially caught my eye because I’ve always been interested in ‘The Factory’ and the people who were a part of it. And the Dean has such an interesting title; just on that score I’d want to know more.
These all sound wonderful.
I also picked up 25 Days ‘Till Christmas 🎅 The Magnificent Mrs Mayhew is brilliant – Milly’s best in my opinion. Happy reading 📚
I loved the audiobook of Peter Pan. I hope you enjoy your new books!
This week I got Black Summer by M.W. Craven and devoured it! I also opened packages waiting for me at home, including Saturdays at Noon, The House on the Lake by Ellwood, The Final Trial by A.A. Abbott, and When We Get to the Island by Nye! xx
I want to read Parkland, too….and I LOVED I Feel Bad About My Neck. Enjoy!
Maybe I should re-subscribe to audible for Peter Pan! lol
That’s a lovely selection of books! I am trying to be good as it’s the time for books to come into my life via Christmas and my birthday, although I did slip today when Christmas shopping for others!
I love that you share books I might never have discovered otherwise. Lanny sure has an intriguing cover.
Great haul! I hope you will enjoy these. xx
