Stacking the Shelves #37

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. It’s a chance to show what books you’ve added to your library in the past 7 days. These can be bought books, borrowed, review copies, any which way they come to you. I’ve linked mine to Goodreads.

It was my birthday last week, my main present was non-book related but I still ended up with a few treasures.


The Fire Horse Girl by Kay Honeyman

Monstrous Beauty by Elizabeth Fama

Drowning Instinct by Ilsa J. Bick

Out of The Easy by Ruta Sepetys

Pantomime by Laura Lam

Etiquette & Espionage by Gail Carriger

Seraphina by Rachel Hartman

I still have a couple of vouchers left.
Let me know if you’ve read any amazing books I should be using them for. 😉


For review:

Dead Jealous by Sharon Jones

People think of Mother Nature as a gentle lady. They forget that she’s also Death…Sixteen-year-old Poppy St John believes in quantum particles, not tarot cards, in Dawkins, not druids. Last summer, in a boating accident in the Lake District, Poppy had a brush with death. But the girl she finds face down in Scariswater hasn’t been so lucky. As she fights to discover the truth behind what she believes is murder, Poppy is forced to concede that people and things are not always what they seem and, slipping ever deeper into a web of lies, jealousy and heart-stopping danger, she comes to realise – too late – that the one thing that can save her has been right there, all the time.


Also, huge thank you to Michelle from MuchLovedBooks for sending me Dead Time by Anne Cassidy so I could appreciate Killing Rachel (book 2) more.

What have you found this week?

    Enjoy your goodies. Happy reading 🙂

  7. Oh my gosh this is an amazing haul. Every book you picked has amazing reviews and I want to read them all. Some I bought and haven’t gotten to yet (Seraphina), and some I loved–Monstrous Beauty and the Fire Horse Girl. I know you read both of those already and loved them, so YAY! Will you be writing reviews?

    And oh yeah, Happy belated birthday!

    Happy reading! 🙂

  9. I remember reading Looking for JJ by Anne Cassidy years ago and really enjoying it. I’ll definitely have to read some of her other works at some point.

    Oooh and Seraphina. I really, really want to get that book.
