Stacking the Shelves #51

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. I added 4 books from the library.

    1. That has been my problem lately, adding so many and not reading fast enough, or deleting enough that I have to just admit I am no longer interested in! Luckily all of these were on the TBR, so it did not impact those tallies negatively!

  2. Now *that's* an interesting mix! Lizzie Borden is quite a 'thing' ATM. Why is that I wonder? Movie, books, novels...... [looks intrigued]

    A much better haul this week than expected. I felt the need to cheer myself up & I ended up @ the Mall with plenty of time prior to 'Dark Phoenix'. So....


    Now We Shall Be Entirely Free by Andrew Miller
    The Girl in Red by Christina Henry
    Smoke and Ashes by Abir Mukherjee
    The Labyrinth of the Spirits by Carlos Ruiz Zafon


    Crashed - How a Decade of Financial Crises Changed the World by Adam Tooze
    Blitzkrieg - Myth, Reality and Hitler's Lightening War - France, 1940 by Lloyd Clark
    Paris - After the Liberation: 1944-1949 by Antony Beevor and Artemis Cooper

    Books for the August 'Book Blitz':

    Empire - A Very Short Introduction by Stephen Howe
    The Roman Empire - A Very Short Introduction by Christopher Kelly
    The Holy Roman Empire - A Very Short Introduction by Joachim Whaley
    The British Empire - A Very Short Introduction by Ashley Jackson

    1. I didn't even know that Borden is a popular topic again, interesting. We no longer have Netflix, and never watch tv, so I have no idea what's going on unless I seek out news. I find that is better for my blood pressure for a while.

      I have such a love/hate with ancient Rome. I love Roman Britain, like, TO DEATH and could read about that all day. But actual Rome, I get frustrated after a while. Looks like you had quite a good haul, well done!

  3. A great selection. There are several books that I’m interested in, including Chasing the Devil and Shift

    1. I am nearly done with Chasing the Devil. It's engaging and has kept my attention - I do not ever remember hearing about this guy ever being caught, though thankfully he was - though he started the killing spree maybe a year or so before I was born. it is so insane to me that he was on the loose for so long, that he evaded the police. But, we are only as good as our technology when it comes to DNA, sharing info from a big database, etc, so it is hard to fault the detectives when it is clear they were working night and day on it.

      Sadly, The Shift was a DNF for me already. Not sure quite why, just could not get into it. But, definitely give it a try, you may like it better than me!

  4. Mixed bag for me this week-thrillers, apocalypse. horror, urban fantasy and politics!


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