It’s Saturday and the sun is shining. Welcome to the weekend and Stacking the Shelves. 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. The library is where I get most of my books and I hope that maybe I can inspire other people to use their local library. Our libraries are constantly under threat of closure but the more people that use them, the less likely that is. My library is also how I manage to read a lot of newly released hardbacks as I can order them. Sometimes they can take quite a while to arrive if a title is really popular though.
Redemptor by Jordan Ifueko
This is the only book that I ordered in this week’s haul. It’s the second part of the Raybearer duology. I read Raybearer towards the end of last year and loved it so I’m really looking forward to reading the next part of the story.
Widowland by C J Carey
This one sounds so intrigu ing. It’s an alternative history where Britain and Germany became allies in WWII and Edward VIII is on the throne. The authorities are rewriting books to change people’s views. A group of women who live in area called Widowland appear to be rebelling against this. I am definitely looking forward to reading this.
An Act of Villainy by Ashley Weaver
I saw this on the shelf and was immediately attracted by the cover. It’s a murder mystery set in 1933 London. Hope that it’s as good as the cover promises.
In Praise of Walking by Shane O’Mara
This will hopefully be my next non-fiction read. Walking is my main form of exercise so it seemed like a good idea to find out a bit more about the Science.
So far, I have resisted the temptation to request any more books from NetGalley so these four are the only additions to my shelves this week.
What have you added to your bookshelf?
