Stacking the Shelves #1

STSmall_thumb[2]I’ve recently started following Chrissi Reads at  One of the weekly features she does on her blog is called Stacking the Shelves. I thought it was a great idea so I thought I’d adopt it for my own blog and try to post a weekly update.  Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you’re adding to your shelves, be it buying or borrowing. From ‘real’ books you’ve purchased, a book you’ve borrowed, a book you’ve been given or an e-book they can all be shared.  If you click the book image above, you will be taken to the original webpage hosted by Tynga’s Reviews (

The three books that I added to my shelves this week are:


A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith is a classic that I’ve always wanted to read but haven’t.  It’s about a young girl growing up at the turn of the century in Brooklyn.

The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey is a dystopian novel about a young girl, Cassie, trying to survive after aliens have attacked the Earth.  She wanders alone through the devastation and destruction, searching for her brother.

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo is a book I’ve seen numerous times, but the description didn’t quite grab me. I’ve seen a number of positive reviews so I decided to finally give it a try.  Alina is an orphan who discovers she possesses a magical power that will make her one of the kingdom’s magical elite, the Grisha.

Happy reading this week, everyone!
