Stacking the Shelves #70

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature co-hosted by Tynga's Reviews and Reading Reality. It is a chance to showcase all the goodies you've collected throughout the week, whether they're bought on-line or in-store, an ARC or a final copy, borrowed from a friend or the library, physical or digital, etc.

What did you add to your stash this week?

Happy Reading!


  1. What an interesting and diverse group of books you've added.

    1. Thank you Dorothy. I have a wide variety of interests, and sometimes I just wander the stacks and end up bring 5-10 more home than I intended!

  2. I have the Forensics book.... Tomestone looks interesting... & The Library Book is on my 'Interest' list.

    A better than expected week for me:


    Red Moon by Kim Stanley Robinson
    New York 2140 by Kim Stanley Robinson


    Small Acts of Resistance - How Courage, Tenacity, and Ingenuity Can Change the World by Steve Crawshaw & John Jackson

    Today We Die a Little - Zatopek: Olympic Legend to Cold War Hero by Richard Askwith
    Normandy '44 - D-Day and the Battle for France by James Holland

    1. I raced through The Library Book. It is wonderful. It is as much a love letter to libraries as it is a book about the suppose crime. Well done, i think you'll like it.

  3. I didn't add anything this week. Well, I did get Gone Girl in the mail, from a giveaway, so there is that. I love messed up thrillers! Anyway the Nancy Drew looks good, and Tombstone is probably fascinating- I love that movie so much, whether it's accurate or not.

    1. I love the movie too, it is one of my most favorites. I went through a phase where I was obsessed with Val Kilmer and I probably watched it a zillion times. Plus, cowboys and the Old West, so, win-win.

  4. I have read The Day the World Came to Town. It is good! Just read The Library Book. You are going to love that one I bet. I added The Island of Sea Women by Lisa See, lent to me by a reading group friend and You Can See More From Up Here by Mark Guerin, from my Nervous Breakdown Book Club subscription. I had not heard of the novel but it looks quite good.

    1. I've just finished both of those books and I loved them both!! I liked The Library Book better, but I enjoyed The Day the World Came to Town because everything I have ever read about 9/11 is from here, within the US. Plus, we all lived it. I found the perspectives of those outside the US, and especially those from other countries, especially interesting.

  5. Ohemgee I need that Tombstone book for my husband!!! He looooooves Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday and the gang!!

    My STS:

    1. Tombstone was one of my fave movies as a kid, and I used to love Val Kilmer. Luckily as an adult I have started reading the true stories about that time and place, and I was so psyched to see this one on NetGalley. I have not started it yet, but I do hope your hubby enjoys it!


Thanks for visiting my little book nook. I love talking books so leave a comment and let's chat!
