Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews where book enthusiasts can show off their newest additions to their collection!
It was a REALLY big week this week… Oops. Hopefully that is the last of it for a while. I desperately need to implement the rules stated last week – only buy a book if I have read six from the pile, and checked the library. You can get any of these for yourselves too, from Booktopia.
- More Letters of Note – Shaun Usher
- Lists of Note – Shaun Usher
These are brilliant coffee table books; I am in love. They’re so much fun to flick through!
- How to Talk to Girls at Parties – Neil Gaiman, Fabio Moon & Gabriel Ba
- Giant Days – John Allison & Lissa Tremain
I have become really interested in graphic novels, and these two came highly recommended. I also really want the next volume in The Wicked and the Divine, but I have to do some saving first…
- Sharp Ends – Joe Abercrombie
Brilliant fantasy author – I haven’t read all of his work, but I intend to before the end of this year.
- Get Your Sh*t Together – Sarah Knight
The wonderful author of The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**k is back with another wickedly funny self-development book. Knight lives in the Carribean and works from home – it really can’t hurt to take on some of her tips!
- Kings Rising – C. S. Pacat
I have read it, but I need to complete the series in my bookshelf!
- Feminist Fairytales – Barbara G. Walker
I think the title is self-explanatory. Can’t wait to read these fairytales retold with vibrant, strong female characters, rather than submissive princesses.
- Truthwitch – Susan Dennard
My friends screamed at me until I bought this one. I want to read it very soon so that I can grab Windwitch too!
- How The Marquis Got His Coat Back – Neil Gaiman
This is a Neverwhere short story – I haven’t read Neverwhere itself yet, but this short story was way too cute not to have immediately!
Books for Trade:
- Shadow’s Edge – Brent Weeks
- Beyond the Shadows – Brent Weeks
I have been meaning to read this series for ages; I already own the first one! I’ll get stuck into them in February – my series month (hopefully)!
- Storm Front – Jim Butcher
- Poison City – Paul Crilley
These two are wizard detective books! I love this sort of trope. These ones look a bit darker than Rivers of London, which is one of my favourites!
- The Potion Diaries – Amy Alward
- Immortal Beloved – Cate Tiernan
I got these two in exchange for some books I had lying around. 🙂 I’ve been interested in The Potion Diaries for a while, but didn’t want to buy it: this is the perfect alternative.
- Defy the Stars – Claudia Gray
- Miss Treadway & the Field of Stars – Miranda Emmerson
- Only – Caroline Baum
- The Fifth Letter – Nicola Moriarty
All of these interest me, despite their very different genres. I am totally enthralled by the cover of Defy the Stars – so sad it isn’t the final one! I might not get to read it before I have to return it to my friend, but the cover needed to be photographed!
- Norse Mythology – Neil Gaiman
I have already read this one, but was sent a finished copy: it is a beautiful book!
- The Woman Who Changed Her Brain – Barbara Arrowsmith-Young
I have been obsessed with Barbara Arrowsmith-Young since I first heard of her in The Brain That Changes Itself. I can’t wait to read her full story.
Have you read any of these? What did you add to your shelves this week?
