Stacking the Shelves #116


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.

Library Treasures

Bonus! All of these are from my TBR!

Happy Reading!


  1. All of these titles look amazing! I might check some of these out too.

  2. 'Other Suns' is on my Wish List - in the, no doubt, vain hope of trying to understand your country [lol]

    A respectable 5 for me this week...


    City of Ghosts by Ben Creed
    Seven Lies by Elizabeth Kay


    Emergence - The Connected Lives of Ants, Brains, Cities and Software
    The Battle of the Bulge - Hitler's Final Gamble in Western Europe by Martin King
    Saving Mona Lisa - The Battle to Save the Louvre and its Treasures from the Nazis by Gerri Chanel

    1. To be fair, a lot of US don't even understand our country right now!

      I read Saving Mona Lisa a few years ago and LOVED it.

  3. Ooh Jezebel! I had someone tell me Hillary was a Jezebel. :)

    1. I really liked the book, but I don't know Kings well enough to know how accurately the author is in her theological scholarship. I liked the book, but need to know more.

      That doesn't even make sense! Was the person, by chance, a trump supporter?

  4. The Warmth of Other Suns is a truly great read.
    I had a big haul this week:
    Hamnet by Maggie O'Farrell
    Piranesi by Susanna Clarke
    Fifty Words for Rain by Asha Lemmie
    Alice Paul:Claiming Power by J D Zahniser and Amelia R Fry
    Rebels of Ireland by Edward Rutherfurd

    1. Very nice haul you've got there! Is rebels of Ireland fiction or non-fiction?

    1. I really liked the book, but I also say so with some caution because I do not know Kings well enough to know how to judge the author's theological scholarship. And now there is so much more I want to know about Jezebel, but sources simply do not exist outside of the Old Testament. Argh.

  6. Will be interested in that "I work at a Library" book. I imagine they have some fun stories..or not.

    1. It was a super quick read with some funny stories. It ended up being an 'okay' for me because truthfully she was a bit condescending on more than a few occasions.


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