Stacking The Shelves #96 – July & August #bookhaul

It’s time for another #bookhaul post! It seems that I’ve been neglecting my book haul posts as the last one I did was in June… Whoops? Above the stack of books I added to my shelves in July and August. Two pre-orders are still waiting to be published: The Family by Louise Jensen will be released any day now and I’ve kind of lost hope of ever receiving my pre-order of Sleep by C.L. Taylor… It was supposed to have been published on April 4th then May 10th, but to this day it hasn’t been shipped and has been marked as ‘unavailable’ ever since. Guess who is going to give up and read Sleep on her kindle instead? xD

Want to see the new additions up close? You can find a full list of all 13 books below…

1. The Magic Strings Of Frankie Presto by Mitch Albom. It’s been a while since I last tried one of his books, but I really liked the sound of the music element in this one and I’m looking forward to read it.

2. The Name Of The Rose by Umberto Eco. I’ve been meaning to read this modern classic for ages now and I loved the cover of this edition, so I couldn’t resist getting a copy.

3. The Lion Tamer Who Lost by Louise Beech. I got this copy in preparation for #Orentober month… My first experience with her work a few months back (Call Me Star Girl) instantly turned Louise Beech into a favorite author and I just can’t wait to read her previous books.

4. The Girl Before by J.P. Delaney. Another title I’ve been meaning to read for a while and couldn’t resist getting a physical version of.

5. The Alienist by Caleb Carr. I LOVED the Netflix adaptation of this book and I can’t wait to discover if the original story is just as good as the adaptation!

6. Six Years by Harlan Coben. Another copy for my Harlan Coben UK paperback collection… The colors of these editions are simply gorgeous.

7. Her Name Was Rose by Claire Allan. I really enjoyed her other story Apple Of My Eye last month and I couldn’t resist getting a copy of this one. The pink details on the cover are BRIGHT though. xD

8. Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens. The cover of this one is stunning! I’ve been wanting to read this story for a while now, and I’m hoping that owning a physical copy will help me finally pick it up.

9. Gravity by Tess Gerritsen. I’ve been meaning to try her work for a while now, and there was just something about the sci-fi inspired blurb that caught my attention. Also, I hardly own any purple books and that is a legit reason to buy this one, right? xD

10. Blink by K.L. Slater. I actually already read an ARC of this one, but I couldn’t resist getting a physical version as it was on offer and I love K.L. Slater’s books. I’m definitely rereading this one in the future!

11. The Child by Sebastian Fitzek. It was the blurb that made me want to read this story instantly… I mean, a 10 year old serial killer?!?! It can’t get more disturbing than that.

12. The Storied Life Of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin. I love bookish books and I’ve been meaning to read this story for quite some time now… I love the cover of this edition!

13. Broken Homes by Ben Aaronovitch. I’ve been slowly collecting the books of this series, and I now own copies of the first five books… I’m thinking of catching up and reading book three, four and five first before I continue buying the other books though.


Have you read any of these? Any title I should give priority to (except for Blink, which I already read and The Lion Tamer Who Lost, which I will be reading for #Orentober month)?

  1. I can’t wait to hear your thoughs on The Name of the Rose! I’ve never been brave enough to pick that one up 😄 I have The Girl Before on Audible, it was on sale, I haven’t listened to it yet. Can’t wait for you to read The Lion Tamer 😍

    • I’m looking forward to finally read Harlan Coben’s books again! And Never Let You Go as well… It will be a while before I gather enough courage to pick up Umberto Eco though. 😉
