Now 

Jar of Hearts by Jennifer Hillier

This book is so good!I requested it on NetGalley after seeing a lot of bloggers raving about it and it is more than living up to its hype so far!

F*** You Very Much by Danny Wallace

I’m still dipping in and out of this one and really enjoying it now. It’s amusing in places and shocking in others but altogether a good read.

The AfterLife of Walter Augustus by Hannah M. Lynn

This book is fab, I’m really enjoying it. It’s making me think about the idea of the afterlife and how it all works, and I love the characters.

Girl Up by Laura Bates

I’m reading this one as and when I’m in the mood to come back to it but I’m still finding it interesting. I wish it existed when I was a teenager.

 

Then 

A Deadly Thaw by Sarah Ward

This novel was brilliant, I devoured it! I already can’t wait to get started on the next book in the series, A Patient Fury, and expect to pick that up in the next couple of weeks.

The Lido by Libby Page

I found this to be such a gorgeous and moving read, it stole a piece of my heart! I’m still trying to compose my thoughts into a review but hopefully I’ll get something written and posted very soon.

The Date by Louise Jensen

I loved this book! It was gripping and unsettling and I literally read it in one sitting because I just couldn’t put it down. I posted my review of this yesterday so you can read more of what I thought here if you’d like to.

The Woman in the Window by A. J. Finn

This book was different to what I was expecting it to be but I did really like the writing style. I’m hoping to get my review finished and posted by next week.

 

Next

The Craftsman by Sharon Bolton

I treated myself to the hardback of this in the week it was released so I’m really keen to read it. I love Sharon Bolton’s writing so I’m sure I’m going to love this book!

Let me Lie by Clare Mackintosh

My husband bought me the hardback of this for Easter and I’m so keen to read it. It’s one of my #20BooksOfSummer so I’m hoping to can get to read it this week.

In Bloom by C. J. Skuse

Sweet Pea was one of my favourite books of last year so I was thrilled to hear that a sequel was coming out soon. I was so excited when I got approved to read it on NetGalley and I simply can’t wait any longer to read it!

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!

I’ve acquired some new books in the last couple of weeks so I decided to join in with Stacking the Shelves today to share my book haul!

 

F*** You Very Much by Danny Wallace

I’ve been wanting to read this book ever since I first heard about it so I bought it on kindle last week and am already reading it. Initially it wasn’t quite as good as I hoped it was going to be but it’s definitely living up to my hopes now I’m a bit further into it.

The Listener by Rachel Basch

I bought this after it was recommended to me this week and I’m really looking forward to getting to it.

How Music Got Free by Stephen Witt

This book has been on my wishlist for ages and I finally bought a copy this week. Ive heard really interesting things about this book so I’m curious to read it.

The Things We Learn When We’re Dead by Charlie Laidlow

I saw a fab review of this book on Ali – The Dragon Slayer‘s blog a little while ago and the book has been swirling around in my head ever since so I finally decided to download a copy for my kindle. I hope to read it soon.

The After Wife by Cass Hunter

I saw a few people tweeting about this book on release day on Thursday and when I looked the book up I was so intrigued that I had to buy it.

To The Bridge: A True Story of Motherhood and Murder by Nancy Rommelmann

This was my Prime choice for June – I spotted it on a recommendations email from Amazon and decided to make it my pick for the month. I’m not sure when I’ll get to read this but hopefully soon.

 

The Reading Room by Fenella Gentleman

This book has been on my radar for a few weeks so I was thrilled when a blogging friend sent me her copy. I am really looking forward to getting lost in this novel very soon.

Vox by Christina Dalcher

I have seen this book all over social media and have been so keen to get my hands on a copy. I was super excited when my NetGalley request got approved this week and I can’t wait to get started on this one.

In Bloom by C. J. Skuse

I read and loved Sweet pea when it came out so I actually squealed when I got approved on NetGalley to read the follow up novel! I will definitely read this one very soon, it’s already calling to me from my TBR mountain!

A Patient Fury by Sarah Ward

I’m going to be reading this book very soon as I’m on the blog tour for the paperback release next month.

Jar of Hearts by Jennifer Hillier

I’ve heard about this book on some of my favourite blogs in the last couple of weeks so I couldn’t resist requesting it on NetGalley. I’m so happy to have been approved and this is another book that I plan to read very soon.

You Were Made for This by Michelle Sacks

This is another book that I kept seeing on twitter so I requested it on NetGalley. It sounds like a fascinating novel and I’m eager to read it soon.

 


 

Did you get any new books recently? I’d love to know. Have you read any of the books in my book haul? Are there any that you recommend me getting to sooner rather than later? Feel free to leave a link to your own Stacking the Shelves post in the comments! 🙂

Now

 

The Afterlife of Walter Augustus by Hannah M. Lynn

I’m really enjoying this book, it’s such a refreshingly different read and is one I love getting back to.

The Woman in the Window by A. J. Finn

I’ve had this on my TBR for a while now and finally picked it up yesterday. It’s not quite what I was expecting but I love the writing so it’s keeping me hooked.

F**k You Very Much by Danny Wallace

I bought this just the other day and started reading it right away. I’m not enjoying it quite as much as I hoped I would but it is interesting to read more about how rudeness spreads, it does make you think.

Girl Up by Laura Bates

I’ve been reading this on and off for the last couple of weeks and am enjoying it. It’s a book that I would recommend for teenagers, and parents of teenagers. I wish it had existed when I was young.

 

Then 

The Fear by C. L. Taylor

I devoured this book in one sitting this week, it was such a thrilling read. I’ve already reviewed it so you can find out more about what I thought here.

Our House by Louise Candlish

This was one of my picks for #20BooksOfSummer and I really enjoyed reading it. I’m a big fan of Louise Candlish’s writing anyway and this book was a great read.

Stay With Me by Ayobami Abedayo

I’ve had this book on my TBR since it was published and I’ve held off reading it because I thought it might be a difficult read for me. I’m so glad that I finally picked it up though as I adored the writing and found it quite a cathartic read.

 

Next

The Lido by Libby Page

This is my next pick from my #20BooksOfSummer TBR and I am so looking forward to reading this one. I have a feeling it’s going to be a book that I adore!

The Date by Louise Jensen

I was lucky enough to get an ARC of this from NetGalley so I’m really keen to read it as I’ve loved all of Louise Jensen’s books so far and this one sounds excellent!

A Deadly Thaw by Sarah Ward

I’m on the blog tour for the third book in this series next month and have just realised that I haven’t read the second book yet. I do like to read books in order where I can so I’m squeezing this book in this week. I very much enjoyed the first book so I’m looking forward to read this one!
