Today I’m sharing the haul of books I bought, acquired or borrowed recently for Stacking the Shelves, a meme hosted by Reading Reality.


I snagged a few bargains from a charity shop for the grand total of £1! They were 50p each and there was a “buy two, get one free” offer! So, I couldn’t afford not to, really.

I’ve not read any of Rick Riordan’s books in full yet, but I couldn’t resist this gorgeous hardback at that price. Hopefully, it will be good. The non-fiction book got my attention with the title as I’m interested in gentle parenting and child psychology. I bought the Jaqueline Wilson book with my daughter in mind as I remember enjoying it as a child.

Gifts & Giveaways-My Birthday Haul!

I got these wonderful books from my family for my birthday:

As you can see, I haven’t quite got the hang of TikTok yet. But I’ve been having fun experimenting with transitions and filters.

I didn’t even know there were Stranger Things novels until recently and now I’m on a mission to read them all! The others have been on my wishlist for a while.

This was free through Amazon First Reads:

It’s historical fiction, which isn’t usually my thing, but they didn’t have any fantasy or sci-fi this month so I thought I’d give it a go. It’s set during the Second World War, so might be quite interesting.

I’m excited to get stuck into this haul of books! I could just use another few months off work…
