Stacking The Shelves #1

Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course e-books!

This is the first time I've taken part in this meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews, even though I've been meaning to get to it forever! but it's been a good week for books, so what better time?

Assassin's Heart by Sarah Ahiers
I'm still waiting on this to arrive from Amazon, it feels like I've been waiting forever for this book!
The Sleeping Prince by Melinda Salisbury

I was so excited when this arrived I didn't even mind that I stepped on the parcel when I got home from work and almost went crashing through the glass door in the porch!
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
Longbow Girl by Linda Davies
Plus a whole bunch of other lovely bookish goodies from my #TBTBSecretSanta!
A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Bachman
I'm not sure what to expect for this one, it's this months pick at my book club. I'm already picturing Ove as Carl from the movie Up, which is making me both excited and already weepy to read the book!

Review books
Siren's Song by Mary Weber
Souls Entwined by Anne B Cole

Storm Siren and Siren's Fury by Mary Weber
for Empress Orchid and The Last Empress by Anchee Min
I've been approved for the final book in the trilogy on Netgalley (happy dance!), so I picked up a second hand copy of books one and two in the series from a friend in exchange for the stories of Chinese Empress Tzu Hsi. I loved Storm Siren, but wanted to leave book two until I had book three as well, because the first book's cliffhanger ending almost killed me!

What about you guys? How has your bookish week been?


  1. OOoh nice! I really enjoyed Red Queen! Hope you enjoy all your wonderful new reads!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by then if you can!

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. I'm a little bummed that I read a huge - as in THE - spoiler for Red Queen in some promo for Glass Sword this week, but I'm still excited to start it. It's moving ever closer to the top of my TBR!

      I'll definitely stop by your blog, thanks for visiting!

  2. I really really want to read Red Queen! I've heard so many good things about it. The cover of the Sleeping Prince looks so pretty!

    Awesome haul!

    1. I know right? They say don't judge a book by its cover, but that's pretty much me in a nutshell! I've bought books on the strength of cover art alone in the past. Luckily though I really enjoyed the first book in the series so I think I'm on to a winner.

  3. I loved red queen! I hope you enjoy them all! Happy reading :)

    1. I've heard lots of good things about it! Unfortunately I also read a massive spoiler this week in some promo for Glass Sword, which I think will ruin it a little for me. I'm still going to give it a go though.

  4. Awesome stack of books this week. I hope you love all of your new books.

    1. Thanks Grace, I'm just hoping I have time to get to them! My TBR seems to be growing faster than I can read it at the moment.

  5. It looks like you got some wonderful books, Mikayla! I have Red Queen but I haven't gotten to read it yet. Have a wonderful week.

    1. I've had Red Queen on my Kindle for the best part of a year but have never got to read it. Hopefully now I have a paper copy it won't get lost again! I find once things get pushed off page one of my Kindle, they kind of get forgotten about!
