Stacking the Shelves 79

It’s Saturday and that 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 this week they are all just random picks off the shelves although one is a book that has been on my TBR for over a year.

King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo
I don’t often look at the Y A shelves but had a glance at them this week and was really excited to see not only this one but Rule of Wolves too which have both been on my TBR for over a year. I only picked up the first one though. I loved the first trilogy set in the Grishaverse and am really looking forward to reading about what happens next.

A Death in Chelsea by Lynn Brittney
The rest of my library haul this week are all crime books. This one is set in 1915 in London. A young gossip columnist is found hanged in her flat but her family suspect foul play. Then another death occurs leading to the involvement of Chief Inspector Peter Beech. It’s all set against the background of WW1 and sounds like a book I’m going to enjoy.

A Gruesome Discovery by Cora Harrison
This is another historical crime series and it ‘s the next in the Reverend Mother Aquinas series. I love this series set in Cork in 1925. The plots are always really clever and I really like the character of the Reverend Mother.

The Body under the Bridge by Nick Louth
This is a more contemporary thriller involving DCI Craig Gillard. In this one, a missing persons investigation becomes more serious when the Home Secretary becomes involved. I’ve read a couple of these before and enjoyed them so I’m looking forward to this one too.

So that’s my latest library haul.

What have you added to your bookshelf this week?

  1. I hope you enjoy King of Scars! I loved the Six of Crows duology more than the original trilogy. I did really like that show so I might have to add these back on the TBR!

    1. I enjoyed Six of Crows more too but I did love the character of the Prince in the original trilogy. King of Scars was really good so onto Rule of Wolves soon.

  2. I just got King of Scars and will be listening to it soon, I hope. I have a few books I have to get to first. I hope you enjoy all these books.
