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!

Purchased eBooks

Resistance: A Songwriter’s Story of Hope, Chance and Courage by Tori Amos

I’m hoping to read this one in the coming days as it’s calling to me from my Kindle!

Passing by Nella Larsen

This is a book that I’ve been meaning to pick up for a long while so when I spotted it this week I decided to grab it. I’m really keen to get to this one.

Home Before Dark by Riley Sager

I’ve read and really enjoyed all of Riley Sager’s previous novels so had to buy this one even though the premise (haunted house) sounds utterly terrifying to me!

Blood Moon by Lucy Cuthew

I’ve already read this one and I thought it was excellent. It’s about a teenage girl and what happens when she gets her period during her first sexual encounter with a boy from school. It’s such a good read and I recommend it!

Review Books

The Ends of the Earth by Abbie Greaves

I was thrilled to be approved for this one on NetGalley as Abbie Greaves previous novel was one of my favourite books of 2020!

Perimenopause Power by Maisie Hill

I requested this book on a whim when I spotted it as it’s definitely a book that I need to be reading at the moment.

The Appeal by Janice Hallett

As soon as I read the premise of this one I had to request so I’m very happy to now have a copy on my Kindle.

Dead Head by C. J. Skuse

This is the third novel in the Rhiannon (Sweetpea) series so I was really keen to get my hands on it to find out what happened after the end of the previous book!

Purchased AudioBooks

Quite by Claudia Winkleman

The Midnight Library by Matt Haig

Another Planet: A Teenager in Suburbia by Tracey Thorn

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. You do have some nice books there, Hayley! I’m interested in The Appeal. I’ve been hearing about it and it sounds great. You’ve got a nice variety of other books, too. I hope they get your reading mojo going, and that you really enjoy them all.

  2. Loved your list, Hayley, thanks. I’m currently reading a thriller, Silent Scream by Angela Marsons, the third volume of A Song of Ice and Fire, and a book on lost words in the Irish language, called Thirty-Two Words for Field by Manchán Magan. Loving all three!

  3. I really want to read Quite but I feel it will appear in the local charity shops when they’re open again. And the Tracey Thorn is on my list, I love her so much.

    I don’t usually get any more books at this time of year, as my birthday is around the corner. But my lovely friend Verity sent me Raynor Winn’s The Wild Silence in the week – she’d given me The Salt Path for Christmas (did you see my Christmas Pile? Wheeee!) and then was given this one, read it and passed it to me so I had both of them.

    Oh and thinking of it, I might have picked up a couple in the Amazon Kindle sale. Oops.

    • You’re probably right about Quite, I hope you can find a copy in the charity shops once they’re open again. I’m keen to listen to my audio book soon and to read the Tracey Thorn book (I love her too!).
      It was my birthday this week and three people bought me books as a surprise and I didn’t already have any of them so I was thrilled!

  4. Dead Head looks great and you know, I didn’t even know it was a series. I really need to make time for the Riley Sager book as well. Lots of good reading ahead for you so I hope you enjoy!

    • I can’t wait to read Dead Head! The first book is Sweet Pea and the second is In Bloom if you want to read them in order. I’m keen to read the Riley Sager but I’m a bit of a wimp as it sounds quite unnerving! Thank you 🙂
