Stacking The Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s reviews and is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. So in my case it’s all the e-books I’ve received from NetGalley, as a request from an author, from Amazon, or as a physical copy from the library or bookshop. Thanks again to Tynga’s reviews in particular for stating that she didn’t mind what genre was involved, I know not all of these will be everyone’s cup of tea, plus thanks to Hayley at Rather Too Fond Of Books, as this is where I’ve become a fan of the stacking the shelves meme:)
To begin with I got the following from Netgalley:
The Summer We Danced by Fiona Harper
I loved The Little Shop Of Hopes and Dreams by Fiona Harper (excuse the post, it was my first ever!). Her characters are fresh and interesting and her descriptions vivid and so I was so excited to get approved for this!
The Wedding Date by Jennifer Joyce
You all know how I felt about The Beginner’s Guide to Salad. Brilliantly homely, with ‘you want to make them your best friend’ characters, funny writing, and in general oh so satisfying. Jennifer Joyce is a legend in my book (not MY book, but, oh, you know what I mean!).
And from Amazon:
Saven Deception by Siobhan Davis
The ‘True Calling‘ series was my first foray into YA and I ADORED it! Amazing writing, twists and turns with constant questions in the air as to who could be trusted. Siobhan Davis was in the IWI writing group with me and I’m so proud of how amazing she’s doing, but you’re hearing this from someone who is speaking as a reader not just a friend. Cannot wait to get back to these. (The first books of both her series are free on Amazon at the moment).
Love Muffin and Chai Latte by Anya Wilde
‘Love Muffin and Chai Latte follows the journey of Tabitha Lee Timmons as she deals with financial stress, loony relatives, some crooks, an unhappy bride to be, a grumpy old man and two heartbreakingly handsome men.’ Yup, the blurb got me.
Any Way You Slice It by Monique McDonell
A marraige of convenience to sort out PLUS is free on Amazon at the moment. Nuff said.
Izzy’s cold feet by Sarah Louise Smith
I think the cover got me here, I remembered seeing a lot about Amy and Zach and was going to go looking for that but then got sidetracked when I ‘peeked’ inside this. As you’d guess from the title it’s about someone having cold feet on their wedding day, Izzy can’t stop thinking of the ones that got away. Add in that the blurb tells us her sister went missing when she was young and I had to click!
So, a good week (em, maybe too good-shifts nervously from foot to foot;)) Happy reading everyone:)
