Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews where book enthusiasts can show off their newest additions to their collection!
This week (Sunday 10th April – Saturday 16th April) I received FOUR new books! Two reading copies, I borrowed one from a friend, and I bought one. I have, however, already read three of the new additions, so I can move them out of the TBR.
- The Many Selves of Katherine North – Emma Geen
This was an incredibly interesting book, based on the invented scientific field of phenomenautism – the ability to transfer one’s consciousness into another being. Kit has been ‘jumping’ for seven years; her main prerogative is the study of animal environments. It is an incredibly interesting read – my review will be up soon.
- The Passion of Dolssa – Julie Berry
I really must get onto this one – it is an adult/YA crossover, so I am highly intrigued! It’s an historical fiction set in France!
- Fahrenheit 451 – Ray Bradbury
I absolutely could not resist this beautiful hardcover edition. It is just stunning! Plus, I’d never actually read this classic before! (I have now – and it is officially one of the better classics! 😛 )
- The War That Saved My Life – Kimberly Brubaker Bradley
I didn’t get to take my own photo of this one – it wasn’t in my possession long enough; I couldn’t put it down. It isn’t out until June (I borrowed a reading copy), but I will definitely be reviewing and recommending this beautiful beautiful book. Set during World War II, the story covers a whole range of pertinent issues – domestic abuse, sexuality, disability, being just some – in a manner that makes it accessible and appropriate for children. Although I haven’t read Goodnight Mister Tom in quite a long time, this novel reminded me of that one, and it has inspired me to locate my copy and reread it.
