Stacking the Shelves #81

Stacking the Shelves #81

Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews where book enthusiasts can show off their newest additions to their collection!

9 new books this week! I have been coveting Knowledge is Beautiful for ages! It is a really really beautiful book presenting knowledge in interesting ways. I was also lucky enough to attend an event with Jessica Townsend, the author of Nevermoor, and I had my book signed. This is the next big thing in children’s books and I am so excited to have two signed copies!

Kids:

  • The Darkest Minds – Alexandra Bracken

My friends have been telling me to read this book for AGES! And now that I know there is a movie coming out next year, I grabbed the first copy I saw!

  • Turtles All the Way Down – John Green

I have no idea what to expect from this book but I am going to try and go in with an open mind. I had a sweet spot in my teenage years where I adored John Green, but when I tried to read some of his other work in my 20s, I was completely disinterested.

  • The Undercurrent – Paula Weston

FullSizeRender 74This was the August book for the YA Chronicles box! I got mine quite late! It was full of really cool ‘electrifying’ items, including Pikachu pens, and a cauldron bubble bath! (See the not amazing photo to the side!)

  • The Doldrums and the Helmsley Curse – Nicholas Gannon

I absolutely ADORED the first book in this series, The Doldrums, and cannot wait to read the sequel! The illustrations are just incredible and I am sure the story will be too!

  • Nevermoor – Jessica Townsend x 2FullSizeRender 73

Could not resist two copies of this book, one signed to me personally and another just signed. I might give it to a friend who must read it, or I might hold onto it until Jessica reaches J K Rowling status. 😛

Adult:

  • A Girl’s Best Friend – Lindsey Kelk

I really enjoyed one of Lindsey’s books I read earlier this year; light, fluffy romance which I do like sometimes!

  • Becoming Cliterate – Dr. Laurie Mintz

A non-fiction about orgasm equality – it sounds incredibly interesting!

  • Knowledge is Beautiful – David McCandless

Just a really really stunning coffee table book with beautiful depictions of data in different forms. I couldn’t resist when I saw one on the discards pile at work!
