It’s Saturday again and it’s really cold! The canals are frozen and the grasses and hedgerows stay frosty all day.
Saturday means it’s 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!
As usual, my stacking the shelves post is my weekly haul of books from the library and it’s a lovely selection of books that I wanted to read and random picks off the shelf.
Blade Breaker by Victoria Aveyard
This is the sequel to Realm Breaker which I reread last week and I’m really looking forward to finding out what happens next to this very random group of people. It’s described as YA fantasy but I’m not sure why. Maybe there’s a bigger market for Y A fantasy than normal adult fantasy?
The Mitford Secret by Jessica Fellowes
I’ve read all of the Mitford mysteries. Each one focuses on a different sister as they grow up. We’ve now reached 1941 and the focus on this story is Deborah, who begins the book by getting married and becoming Lady Cavendish. She invites all of the family to Chatsworth where they all become embroiled in another case of murder. This is the last of the books as Debo is the youngest sister and it will be sad to say good bye to a series that I have really enjoyed.
The Mystery of Four by Sam Blake
This was a random shelf pick. Tess Morgan is hosting a grand opening weekend for her house and garden but the event is plagued by accidents. A family friend doesn’t believe that they are accidents however and sets out to discover the truth.
The Museum of Ordinary People by Mike Gayle
This is was another random pick off the shelf. This time I was intrigued by the title. Jess is grieving for the loss of her mother but also having to clear her home. She comes across an archive of items known as The Museum of Ordinary People and begins to delve into the history of these objects.
Apparently the book was inspired by the discovery of a box filled with momentos discovered in a skip.
So that’s my latest library haul.
What have you added to your bookshelf this week?

My Stacking the Shelves post.
Always a very eclectic haul, Janette. I want to read the Mike Gayle book. I hope you enjoy them all.
Great haul, Janette! I like the look of The Museum of Ordinary People , that title is intriguing
Blade Breaker sounds interesting – Is it just a duology or are there more in the series ….. don’t feel like I have room on my plate for a series, but a duology…maybe.

As far as I know it’s going to be a trilogy but I think her previous series was a quartet so I’m not certain
The Mitford Secret and The Mystery of Four both look really intriguing. Have a great weekend.

I have visited and love your additions this week. Sadly my phone won’t let me comment or like the actual post ☹️
I need to see if there’s something I can do to make it work with Safari (because I have to respond to comments on Chrome on my computer for them to go through as myself). Thanks for visiting at least!
You are very welcome 😀
Meanwhile I have the air con cause it’s still hot at midnight 🙂
Enjoy your new reads
That feels really hard to imagine right now. 😃
