The weekend has arrived already and it’s time for another post about Stacking the shelves.  This is a meme hosted by Reading Reality and details are on her blog. The gorgeous graphic is also used courtesy of the site.

My stacking the shelves posts are all about the books that I get from my local library. Libraries are continually under threat of closure or reduced hours but they are such an important way of getting books into people’s hands that they need supporting. By highlighting the amazing books that I pick up every week, I hope to inspire maybe just one person to visit their library and borrow a book

This week, like last week, I only had one reservation to pick up and just found another three books on the shelves that appealed.

Pulpit Rock – Kate Rhodes This has been on my reservations for ages and has been in transit between libraries for over a month but has finally arrived. I really like these these crime novels set in the Scilly Isles featuring DI Ben Kitto. As I’ve said before, I love crime stories that are really based in a recognisable setting and this series is a great example of that. The characters are well written too so I’m looking forward to this one.

The Last – Hanna Jameson ‘And then there were none’ is a classic mystery story but this is a version with a twist as it’s a dystopian version. The world has ended and twenty survivors are holed up in a Swiss hotel when one of them is murdered. Definitely a book that appealed to me.

No Offense – Meg Cabot – I’ve heard good things about Meg Cabot so I thought that I would give this one a try as a bit of light relief after the first two books in my haul. I loved the cover too.

The Improbability of Love – Hannah Rothschild The cover of this one stood out too and the blurb sounded interesting. Annie Mc Dee discovers an long lost art masterpiece and is dragged into the London Art world with multi millionaires and crooks all trying to get their hands on the painting. It’s supposed to be funny so we shall see.

So that’s this week’s haul from the library: one book that I know I will enjoy and 3 that are unknown quantities. That is the beauty of the library though. If I don’t like any of them, they will go back and it hasn’t cost me a penny.

Have you read any of these? What did you think?

  1. Nice list. I’ve read No Words by Meg Cabot, she was a new to me author and I really enjoyed it. It was light and fun and just what I wanted to read at the time.
