Stacking the Shelves – #1


I have put my current read, The Hollow Crown by Dan Jones, aside to bring you the first edition of Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. In Stacking the Shelves, you show the books you’ve recently purchased, borrowed or otherwise got, be it physical or virtual which you, naturally, will be adding to your shelves! For more information about it all, visit this page. Seeing as I don’t regularly have the option to buy physical books, Netgalley seems to be a perfect solution to my book-wanting craze. Without further ado, let’s list the books I recently got. These are all Netgalley books I requested myself.


The first three books I got approved on Netgalley are The Hollow Crown by Dan Jones (my current read), The Thief Taker by C.S. Quinn and Travel Glasses by Chess Desalls. The Hollow Crown is a historical fiction piece that tells the story of how Henry VI became King of England, the subsequent battles and conquering that occurred under his (rather lack of) reign and the rise of a new King. I personally adore this time period in history, so I’m quite literally devouring this baby, and I highly encourage any lover of historical fiction to look into this once it is published. The Thief Taker is more mystery/thriller, and focuses on a killer in 1665’s London — enough to entice me. Finally the Travel Glasses tell the story of a young woman using a pair of glasses to travel through time — how cool is that? I can’t wait to start it.

The next three books I have acquired through Netgalley (it’ll be the death of me, I’m sure of it) are The Diamond Thief by Sharon Gosling, Darkness by Erin Eveland and Frozen by Melissa de la Cruz and Michael Johnston. Aside from Darkness, these are books that will be published in October, which means I’ll be reading them in a short amount of time — but that’s also because I’m super excited for all three. The Diamond Thief tells a story of a trapeze artist named Remy who prowls the streets of Victorian London to steal and uncovers a world of — well, nothing good. Darkness tells the story of a girl with the power of Darkness, and the Masters of Darkness are coming after her. In other words, run like hell. Frozen tells the story of New York City covered in ice and a woman named Natasha trying to find a place called ‘The Blue’, which is said to be a paradise. All three are super cool and I can’t wait to get into them.

The Goodreads page for The Diamond Thief can be found here, for Darkness here and for Frozen right here.

As you can see, I’ve got more than enough books waiting for me, which is fantastic, but knowing my self control I’ll probably end up finding a lot more books that I’d love to read. If anything, that at least means I’ll have more editions of Stacking the Shelves! Yay! (?)

What have you recently added to your shelves? Or, if nothing recently, what are you planning to add?

As always, have a lovely day!

    • First of all, thanks for the comment and the follow, means a lot!

      I have the guilty pleasure of choosing books based on pretty book covers (I’ve paid the price for it many times!) and The Diamond Thief was one of them! Can’t wait to read it.

      I read the first post I saw on your blog, saw a ton of books and jam and I was sold 😉 I’ve followed you back!

  1. The Hollow Crown is new to me, but I absolutely love that time period in history as well, so I have a feeling I would love that one just as much as you. Happy reading!!

    • It’ll be released in early September, so definitely keep an eye out for it! It’s a non-fiction piece and I love it 🙂

      Thanks for the comment!

    • I’m excited for all of them, they all look like I’d like them (which is why I chose them, of course) so I can’t wait to get into them.
      Thanks for the follow, I’ll head over to your blog now! ❤

    • I am really looking forward to reading Frozen, I have this thing with ice and snow and winter — especially in books, haha. Hope it’ll be a good read. Thanks for the comment!
