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



Death Deserved by Thomas Enger & Jorn Lier Thomas

This is the first review book that I got this week, and it will be the first Thomas Enger book that I read but I am so looking forward to getting to this author. This is a crime novel and it sounds so good!




The Disappearance of Stephanie Mailer by Joel Dicker

I read and adored The Truth about the Harry Quebert Affair when it came out so when I spotted this book on NetGalley I immediately requested it and was thrilled to get approved this week. It’s a long book so it’ll be a good one to get completely engrossed in when I need some escapism.




Little Disasters by Sarah Vaughan

I read a fab review of this on Jo at MyChesnutReadingTree’s blog and went straight to NetGalley to request a copy.  I now have a copy on my shelf and am keen to get to it.




When I Was Ten by Fiona Cummins

I’ve read and loved all of Fiona Cummins’ books so far so I had to request her new novel on NetGalley as soon as I knew about it. This sounds like an unnerving and gripping read and I’m sure I’ll love it.



Dead Wrong by Noelle Holten

I was so excited to be invited to read this for the forthcoming blog tour as I read and loved Noelle’s previous novel last year and have been so looking forward to the next book in the series. I’ll be reading this one soon!




Wild Spinning Girls by Carol Lovekin

Carol Lovekin is one of my favourite authors – I’ve read and adored Ghostbird and Snow Sisters so was delighted to be invited to read her new one for the blog tour. I was thrilled to receive an ecopy of this yesterday and I can’t wait to get lost in this novel!



Hamnet by Maggie O’Farrell

I am beyond excited to have this book as I’ve adored Maggie O’Farrell ever since I read After You’d Gone twenty years ago. So much so that when I saw Hamnet on the envelope as the postman handed it to me that I squealed out loud! She is such a special author and Hamnet is my most anticipated book for this year. I’m waiting until I can sit down and devour this book in one day but it will definitely happen very soon!


Have you acquired any new books this week? I’d love to know what you got. Or have you read any of my new books and recommend I get to any of them sooner rather than later? If you’ve shared a book haul post this week then please feel free to share you link below and I’ll make sure to visit your post! 🙂

  1. Nice! Rather jealous of the Maggie O’Farrell! I too was very happy to receive the Joel Dicker book – it sounds amazing! I also was approved for The Lost Lights of St Kilda by Elizabeth Gifford, The Sea Gate by Jane Johnson and was invited to read Coming up for Air by Sarah Leipciger.

    • Thank you 🙂 I was so excited to get a copy of Hamnett, I’ve been a fan of Maggie O’Farrell for so many years. I can’t wait to read it. The Joel Dicker does sound fab, I’m keen to get to that soon too. I hope you enjoy all of your new books, they sound so good! 🙂

  2. You have a terrific book haul this week, Hayley! Horst and Enger are both really talented authors; having them work together…well, I’m sure the book will be terrific. I look forward to your review.

  3. Wow, it looks like you scored, big time, with some awesome books! I will definitely check out those titles. I read lots of historical fiction and got approved for The Last Train To Key West, by Chanel Cleeton, this week. Have fun reading your new books!

  4. Looks like a pile of perfect books for you there – enjoy! I only acquired one this last week (but I have my birthday next week and I know at least two books have been taken off my wishlist, plus I have two Persephones sitting in my cupboard that I bought from a friend to me before Christmas) so there shouldn’t really be ANY new books right now!

    • It was a wonderful week for books, although I don’t think I’ve managed to read any of them as yet and it was three weeks ago. I’m sorry I’m so behind on replying to your comments, I’ve not been too well recently so am now trying to catch up. I hope you’re enjoying your new books. 🙂

  6. Great haul! I have a copy of Death Deserved too for the blog tour and I can’t wait to get a copy of When I Was Ten and Dead Wrong when they come out. I hope you will enjoy these! xx
