Stacking the Shelves #44

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. Never has my addiction been more obvious than when I am now keeping track of every single book I acquire.

What did you add to your stash this week?

Happy Reading!


  1. A Bound Woman is a Dangerous Thing looks interesting! I hope it's good. Have a lovely week and enjoy your new reads!
    Genesis @ Whispering Chapters

    1. Thanks for visiting! I ended up not finishing A Bound Woman is a Dangerous Thing, unfortunately - I did not realize when I first picked it up that it is poetry. My mistake for not paying attention, I only focused on the sub-title. Poetry and I just do not click, but I think it will be very powerful for others who do have a better grasp on it than I do.

  2. Eclectic as always! I thought that the Genetics book looked most interesting...

    A good haul for me this week:


    The Evidence Against You by Gillian McAllister
    Darkside by Belinda Bauer
    The Clockmaker's Daughter by Kate Morton
    Lethal White by Robert Galbraithe
    The King's Witch by Tracy Borman


    No Such Thing as Society - A History of Britain in the 1980's by Andy McSmith
    One Man Against the World - The Tragedy of Richard Nixon by Tim Weiner

    1. Just wait until you see next week's! (I picked up some holds at the library that came in the afternoon, and have 21 more on the way...)

      Let me know when you read the Nixon book. I keep adding it and deleting it from my TBR. I don't even know if it is on or off right now. Nixon bores me, but his impeachment is very important at this stage in the game, at least the process by which it happened...

    2. LOL

      I'm blaming MSNBC for the Nixon thing. They keep referencing the Watergate thing when they do their Trump coverage so I've become interested in the whole event. I don't remember much of it at the time (not being that interested in US politics as a teenager!) so it's interesting to find out more - especially with the weird 'echo' with today's news cycle. It might be a little while before I get around to it though....

    3. Don't worry, I AM interested in US politics and I still can't get myself to care about Nixon/Watergate, even though I should because it was a hugely important event in our history. Plus, of course, we need to get rid of trumplethinskin, but even if he were impeached, his mindless minions wouldn't actually agree to remove him from office.

  3. A Bound Woman does look interesting as does From Gutenberg To Google.
    I snapped up two WorldReads fiction freebies this week: The Murmur Of Bees by Sofia Segovia and Winter Men by Jesper Bugge Kold. Fingers crossed they're good :-)

    1. I hope you enjoyed your finds! Bound Woman was actually poetry and I feel like a dumdum for not paying attention - I focused on the subtitle. Poetry and I do not mix well, but I did read some and think that it will be a very powerful book for those who like the genre.

  4. Unhinged is probably fun... lol. Like a train wreck. And Hacking Darwin... I have to say genetic engineering is such a fascinating (and scary) topic.

    1. I thought it would be - but she is just as crazy! Like, I went into it thinking, "What a shit-show! This will be great because she is awful and he is awful and it will be amazingly awful!" Sadly it was just...awful. Not even in a 'so bad it is good' way. I DNF-ed it!

      I am super excited that I was approved for Hacking Darwin. I found out about it on the day it was published, so I didn't think I would get it. But voila, a couple days later it was MINE!

  5. I'll be waiting to see how you find Dear Los Angeles, since that is where I live.
    I only brought in one new book this week: Juliet the Maniac by Juliet Escoria, from my Nervous Breakdown subscription. I have no idea what it is about but I like the title!

    1. I was so excited to find that LA book! I love books that are really biographies of cities and I thought this would be. And it was, to an extent, but not in the way I was hoping or thinking. It was literally excerpts from letters and diaries, a handful each day of the year, starting at January 1st and going through December 31st. I ended up DNF-ing it :(


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