Stacking the Shelves

Today I’m sharing the haul of books I bought, acquired or borrowed in August 2022 for Stacking the Shelves, a meme hosted by Reading Reality.


I got some mystery paperback books from The Works last week for £1 each (proceeds to charity) and I was delighted when I opened them to discover a fantasy trilogy which has been on my wish list for a while.

I also got The Sandman #1 Preludes & Nocturnes by Neil Gaiman from Forbidden Planet in Nottingham (amazing sjop!) as I’m enjoying the audiobook and TV show.

I ordered the eBook of Once Upon a Winter after seeing it in one of the featured author’s newsletter. I love fairytale retellings and thought it would be perfect for cosying up with when the weather turns colder.

Small, Everyday Fae is a new folklore book by my talented blog buddy Ronel Janse Van Vuuren. I love her books and this cover is gorgeous! I just had to get the eBook.

The eBook of Ma Tutt’s Donut Hut was another impulse buy after reading Lyn Perry’s blog. I enjoy cozy mysteries that contain both food and cats!

Gifts & Giveaways

No gifted or borrowed books this week, which is probably a good thing after the huge birthday haul I had a few weeks ago.

I got the eBook of Exiles ,a dystopian by Ashley Saunders free through Amazon First Reads:

Exiles by Ashley Saunders book cover featuring the title word criss crossing over and over again in a geometric pattern in bright yellow and green, with a dripping spray paint effect

I’m not sure when I’ll have time to read this lot as I’m starting back to work soon, but c’est la vie!
