Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews where book enthusiasts can show off their newest additions to their collection!
I had another really intense week. My beautiful colleagues from Booktopia gave me a gift voucher and my order arrived! I also bought a few for myself. However, I have started a new job this week and we get paid monthly (I’m used to fortnightly) so I can’t afford new books while I’m figuring out how to budget again…
- Summer Days, Summer Nights – Edited by Stephanie Perkins
Technically, this is a gift for my little sister. However, I will be reading it before I give it to her…
- The Disappearance of Ember Crow – Ambelin Kwaymullina
- The Foretelling of Georgie Spider – Ambelin Kwaymullina
I absolutely loved The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf, and am so excited to read the rest of the trilogy sometime this month!!
- The Last Dragonslayer – Jasper Fforde
I love Jasper Fforde’s Thursday Next series, and this one looks fantastic too!
- Wonder Struck – Brian Selznick
- The Marvels – Brian Selznick
Selznick creates incredible stories which are told through images AND words. Plus, they are absolutely gorgeous hardcovers – I really couldn’t resist!
- Windwitch – Susan Dennard
My friends have been raving and raving about this series. I have the first (though I haven’t read it yet), and now I have the second. I had better hurry up and read them before the third comes out!
- Wires and Nerve – Marissa Meyer
This is a graphic novel relating to the world of The Lunar Chronicles – it’s about Iko, the sassiest robot there ever was and I cannot wait to return to this world, and my favourite character.
- A Shadow Bright and Burning – Jessica Cluess
- Penguin Teen Australia Super-Proof 2017
Both of these arrived with my YA Chronicles subscription box. It also had a One Ring necklace, and some gorgeous fantasy-esque prints.
- Atlas Obscura – Joshua Foer, Dylan Thuras & Ella Morton
This is a travel book with a difference; it’s the weird and wonderful places of the world which don’t appear in your traditional travel guides.
- Books for Living – Will Schwalbe
I LOVE BOOKS ABOUT BOOKS SO MUCH. That is all.
- Heart – Johannes Hinrich von Borstel
- The Art of Frugal Hedonism – Annie Raser-Rowland with Adam Grubb
A book about living luxuriously on the cheap. (Sort of.)
- A Whole New World: A Twisted Tale
I love fairytale retellings and this looks so cool! Could not resist.
- The Mills & Boon Modern Girls Guide to Happy Hour – Ada Adverse
The title says it all. If I love this, I’m sure it will feature heavily as a gift this year.
Which of these do you like the look of? What did you add to your shelves this week?
