Stacking the Shelves (23 April)


(Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews, which is all about sharing the books that you’ve acquired in the past week – ebooks or physical books, and books you’ve bought or borrowed or received an ARC of.)

This week I’ve bought a few new books:

Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld

I’ve had Eligible on pre-order ever since it was available to order as I badly wanted to read it. I’ve enjoyed the novels by Curtis Sittenfeld that I’ve read before and with this being based on Pride and Prejudice I simply couldn’t resist it. I know I say this all the time but I definitely plan to read this one soon.

Naive. Super by Erland Loe

This was a random spot on Amazon this week when I was searching for another book. I just loved the idea of it and as it’s a short read I’m sure I’ll be able to squeeze it in while trying to catch up on review books.

Melissa by Jonathan Taylor

This book has such an intriguing premise for me – the idea of a musical hallucination experienced at the same time as a young girl dies. I really hope to read this very soon.

The Disappearance by Annabel Kantaria

This is another book that I’d pre-ordered a while ago when it was on offer for the bargain price of 99p! I just loved the sound of the synopsis and am sure this will be a book I find hard to put down!


Disraeli Avenue by Caroline Smailes

I’m not sure how I’ve not bought and read this book before as I love Caroline Smailes’ writing and I’ve read all of her other books (apart from The Finding of Martha Lost, written under the name Caroline Wallace but even that is on my TBR waiting for me). This book was in the kindle deal section for £1.49 this week so I snapped it up and will try to read it before too long.


Books I received for review:

All is Not Forgotten by Wendy Walker

This is the secret mystery thriller that a lot of bloggers have been reading recently. I saw the the title and synopsis had finally been revealed and knew it sounded like a book I simply had to read so I was thrilled when my request was accepted on Net Galley.

The Sister by Louise Jensen

This is the latest thriller signed to the brilliant publisher, Bookouture. The premise sounds brilliant and as I’m auto-approved for Bookouture I just couldn’t resist downloading a copy. I don’t think this will be on my TBR for very long!

My Husband’s Wife by Jane Corry

This is another book that I’ve heard a lot about, and was very keen to read. I did actually pre-order this book on Amazon but when I spotted it on Net Galley I requested it hoping I’d get the chance to read and review it before release day.

The Girl Who Lied by Sue Fortin

I’ve not read any of Sue Fortin’s books before (although I do have a couple of my TBR) but the premise of this one sounds so good that I knew I had to read it.

Miss E. by Brian Herberger

I happened to see this book mentioned in a tweet this week and happily RT’d it as it sounded like a great read. I was thrilled when the author got in touch to offer me a copy of the book to read and review, of course I couldn’t say no to such a great sounding book! I believe the ebook is out now and it’s due out in print in June so I plan to get to this as soon as I can.


So, that’s all of my new books from the past week. Have you bought any new books recently? Tell me all in the comments below, or if you have a stacking the shelves post on your blog feel free to post the link below too.:)

My weekly wrap up post will be on my blog tomorrow so please look out for that.
