Staking the Shelves Saturday

06 Dec


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 ebooks!

Hi Guys, this is my first ever participation in a meme so wish me luck and bare with, I’m still trying to work out the dos and don’ts. The reason why I chose this one as my first is because it seems to make the most sense, up until now I’ve just been posting the reviews for the things that I’ve read recently but had no idea how to warn you about what was coming up. I toyed with the idea of having a virtual bookshelf widget or plug in but alas it was not to be (far too complicated to achieve for me!). So when I found this meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews I thought it was the next best thing! But as I said, I’m new to this world so if I do go slightly awry or forget to do something etc do let me know, it’s the only way I’ll learn after all. So yes… to my shelves!

To kick off I’m going to with the story I’m currently reading which is Lost and Found by Brooke Davis. It’s a lovely little story that takes very dark topics from unique perspectives and makes them fun! I’m a fair way through it now so I should (fingers crossed) have a review up in a few days, university permitting.

The rest of these are in no particular order but I do think I might read Disclaimer by Renee Knight next as the storyline is really intriguing. Imagine that you find a book one day and it happens to be the story of your life. I can imagine any of us would freak if we happened upon that book on one of our literary sprees!

The Orphan of Torundi had me at ‘Blending espionage elements akin to The Bourne Identity with those high-school-awkward-moments’ I just had to find out how they’ve done it! Who could resist?

The Beauty was recommended to be by a friend so I thought I’d give it a go. I have my reservations but the whole reason I joined NetGalley was to introduce me to new things so… why not.

This is another book that is slightly out of my comfort zone in that its full of mystery and intrigue. It seems to be a very complex and reflective novel that I am very much looking forward to.

The Day We Disappear was an impulse request for me, it’s right up my street. A little romantic fiction featuring young women trying to make their way in the world. Just the thing to get me through the Christmas season me thinks. But this novel will always have a place in my heart as it was the first book to earn me an auto-approval on NetGalley. Made my day.

So there it is, my virtual bookshelf as it appears now. If you would like to know more about any of these books just click on the images and it should (in theory) take you to its page on Goodreads. Realistically, there is no way that I’m going to get through all of these books in a week or even a month. So I might pick a day, perhaps the first Saturday of each month, to tell you what I’ve got sitting on my shelves waiting for us. I dare say there may be some that are on the list from one month to the next but I shall do my best.

But enough from me now, what’s on your shelves? Would any of these make it on? Let me know 🙂
