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! It is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.
I’m so proud of myself because I didn’t buy anything this week. I don’t think that will last long though…
The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman- I swapped this for The Ghost Bride and am really looking forward to reading it. I haven’t read anything by Neil Gaiman before but have heard really good things. Thank you, Sarah, for giving me this!
This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales- I hoped to get this to review but didn’t know I was until it popped through my letterbox. Can’t wait to read it! Thank you, Macmillan!
The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon- I went to an event that Samantha did at a nearby bookshop earlier in the week and had a really good time. It was very interesting to hear her talk about The Bone Season, especially as I enjoyed it so much when I read it a month or two ago. I also got my copy signed which was very nice. (Also, The Bone Season fell on my head when I went to take it down from my shelf and I now have a headache. I thought I should add this.)
I love this bag so much!! I take it everywhere with me and even thought about taking it to bed…We’re inseparable!
What did you get this week? Let me know!

They all look like great books! If you want to check out more by Neil Gaiman, I really recommend The Graveyard Book. It’s pretty good. It’s the only one I’ve read by him, but I already know he’s a great author.
Enjoy your books!

Oh my word I can imagine how much pain you’d be in as The Bone Season is such a big book. It’s awesome that you got yours signed, sounds like you had a great time. I’m hoping to read my copy soon. Great Haul, Happy Reading Lucy!

The Ocean at the End of the Lane sounds amazing! I’ve seen it around a lot lately and I’ve heard a lot of great things about it! I haven’t read a Neil Gaiman book yet either!
This Song Will Save Your Life sounds amazing too! That’s so cool that you got to meet Samantha Shannon! I need to get a copy of The Bone Season too, I’ve been seeing a lot of great reviews for it.
Great haul Lucy! I hope you enjoy all of your books 🙂
