It’s Saturday again and time for my weekly Stacking the Shelves post. Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Marlene at Reading Reality and details are on her blog. The gorgeous graphic is also used courtesy of the site.

Stacking the Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

My STS posts are generally my library books. However, this week we’re on our travels again as we enjoy our final holiday of 2022. At the moment we’re by on the Mediterranean coast right down in the south of France in the gorgeous town of Collioure. We first came here in 2005 and fell in love with the town and surrounding area so we come back quite regularly.

This is our last day and I’m going to be really sad to have to go home. We’ve had a brilliant holiday and I’m sure we’ll be back in the not too distant future.

As we’re on holiday, I can’t go to the library so this week’s Stacking the Shelves post is my Net Galley and ebook additions.

I’ve only added two books to my NG shelf as I’m not requesting so many books now in an effort to keep my shelf under control.

Waste of a Life by Simon Brett
I’ve read all of Simon Brett’s earlier books and I guess they would come under the heading of cosy crime. He has a nice line in sarcasm for some of his characters though and I always enjoyed his novels. This is the first in a new series so I’m looking forward to something different.

Chaos at Carnegie Hall by Kelly Oliver
I’m always a complete sucker for an Art deco cover so obviously had to request this when I saw it. It’s set in 1917 and all about singers and spies so sounds brilliant.

I’ve also just added two ebooks to my kindle this week

Dead in the Water by Mark Ellis
This is the latest in the Frank Merlin mysteries which are set in London during WWII. I’ve loved the previous books so hoping that this will be as good. There’s definitely a wartime theme developing this week.

Sabriel by Garth Nix
I’ve never read this series as it wasn’t published until I was an adult. My daughter loved them all though and when I saw that Jordyn was doing a Read-along, it seemed like a good opportunity to remedy this gap

We’re flying home tomorrow and so next week, I’ll be back at the library again where there is at least one book waiting for me.

That’s what I’ve added to my shelves this week. What’s been added to your bookshelves?

  1. It’s always bittersweet when a holiday comes to an end. I have read a couple of Simon Brett books in the past and enjoyed them. I hope you enjoy these new additions to you shelves, Janette.
