Stacking the Shelves is a weekly haul meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews & Reading Reality. It is about sharing enthusiasm for the new books added to our shelves – be it physical, ebooks, galleys or borrowed from the library.
A large portion of my shelves additions are, well, galleys and I thought of starting with this meme this year to account for all the new galleys I get. Also, maybe it will help me curb my galley requesting a bit? Who knows?
Got myself Unravel Me for the Shatter Me readalong, and The Long Game so that I can finish the Fixer duology. Hopefully I will read both this month.
Moving on to the review copies from
Though I had sworn off contemporary for the immediate future, “cosplay, comic shops, and college applications collide in this illustrated novel” had me interested. It’s about a girl who goes She’s the Man at a comic book store.
A fantasy novel about war between tribes of shifters and containing queer characters.
Endless Water, Starless Sky by Rosamund Hodge
The sequel in the Bright Fire, Cold Smoke duology which I waiting so long for! For those who don’t know, it’s a retelling of Romeo and Juliet, but much more violent. I will probably have to reread the first to refresh my memory, though.

I only had to see “Netflix’s Stranger Things meets Men in Black in the first stand-alone young adult novel” to immediately be interested in this galley.
So, that’s this week – 10 new galleys, and 2 book added to my shelves. I also showed some restraint when requesting this week, as I took my existing galleys into account and did not request many new ones.
What new books have you acquired? Any of these you are excited for?
