Stacking the Shelves #1

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. a chance to share any books you’ve bought, borrowed, or received in the past 7 days. All of the books on this list are linked to Goodreads.

So since this is sort of my first 'Stacking the Shelves' post, I decided I would just include the books I've recieved in the last couple months rather than just this past week. I'll do that post next week. Also I'm pretty sure that the books I list for Stacking the Shelves will be those I review, but not always! Anyway, here they are....


I'm currently borrowing this from my mentor who recommended it to me. I'm hoping to read it by Christmas time.

My old librarian gave this book to me back in August for me to read, so I should probably do so and return it. I don't know if I'm going to review this book. I'm certainly going to read it though.

This is on loan to me from my friend Samantha. It looks pretty fabulous actually.


So I bought this book back when I was at the Sewanee Young Writer's Conference. Kevin Wilson also wrote a collection of short stories (Tunneling to the Center of the Earth) which I absolutely adored. I also got to meet with him when he came to talk to the young writers, and he autographed it. I know its going to be a weird and wonderful read, so I can't wait.


Wolf Hall and Bring Up The Bodies by Hilary Mantel

These two gems were recommended to me by my cousin/uncle/relative Jan and so I very promptly ordered them off of Amazon while I was still in Europe on vacation so they would be there waiting for me when I got home. However, despite summer vacation I ran out of time to read it. Then my mum borrowed them (and devoured them) and then we lent them out to a bazillion friends. ANYWAY now they are back on my book case and I am determined to dig in as soon as possible!! (But not too soon, because the third and final book isn't bound to come out for another two years!)

A rather obvious must-read. I have had it since the day it came out, and yet haven't gotten past the first page due to distractions. 


I was given this book by one of my best friends Emily. She loved it and basically forced it on me. I read the first few pages and found it interesting, but had to put it aside because of school. The author used to live in the same region of France as I did, so maybe we'll have something in common there as I read.

My mother bought me this a few months ago and I always found the cover very beautiful and interesting. So we'll see how this goes!

So that is all for now! I probably won't do these on a weekly basis because I don't buy books quite THAT often. (*looks at Samantha*) However, I'll do them either every week or every other week if I can. And on Fridays.

So until next time... :)
