It’s Saturday again, Thanksgiving has been and gone and Advent begins tomorrow! Where has the year gone?????????

Saturday means it’s time for my weekly Stacking the Shelves post. This is my 70th Stacking the Shelves post which feels fairly impressive to me! 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. I’m a great supporter of libraries, mainly because I could never afford to buy all the books that I want to read, and visit mine every week whenever possible. I love the fact that I can look at the online catalogue and request books to borrow. This is great for books that are recommended to me by different bookbloggers. After being away last week, I had a bumper set of books to collect.

This week’s library haul 😃 They are all a lot shorter than Black Ink Heart which is nice.

The Night Ship by Jess Kidd
I saw this in the bookshop and thought that it looked interesting. Ir’s a dual time-line book set in 1628 and 1989 about two children, one on board a ship and the other on the coast of Australia. I’m hoping it’s better than the last one I spotted which I didn’t finish.

Tomorrow, Tomorrow and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin
I’ve seen lots of great reviews and so I ordered it from the library. It’s a great story about two children who meet in hospital and go on to design computer games together as adults. It works really well after Robert Galbraith’s Black Ink Heart which had an online game at its centre.

An Astronaut’s guide to life on Earth by Chris Hadfield
This was recommended by Carol at Reading Ladies and I’m looking forward to reading it as part of my Non Fiction Reader Challenge.

The Christmas Holiday by Philippa Ashley
I’ve read a few Christmas books as ARC’s but this is the first physical Christmas book that I’ve picked up. I think I might save it until Dec 1st though

The Paper Palace by Miranda Cowley Heller
I remember seeing lots of positive comments about this one when it first came out so I thought I would pick it up when I saw it on the shelf yesterday.

An Easy Death by Charlaine Harris
This series was recommended by Lady Tessa at Tessa Talks Books and this is the first one. It’s about a young girl/gun for hire Gunnie Rose who hires herself out to protect travellers and set in an alternative 1930’s US where the country has fragmented into different states. Sounds fun.

That’s what I’ve added to my book shelves this week. Have you read any of them? What did you think?

  1. I’ve been recommended An Astronaut’s Guide to Life of Earth so many times that I’m really curious! I’ve actually already saved the e-book on Scribd, so I’m excited to hear your thoughts on it. If you love it, too, I might have to pick it up sooner rather than later! 🤗

  2. Terrific haul, Janette. I have Tomorrow, Tomorrow and Tomorrow on my TBR. I’m now going to go to the library this week and look for it.

  3. I am looking forward to getting a library card and exploring the libraries here (we just moved to Ohio). But, we are going to wait until things are a bit more settled so we don’t lose any books!
