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.
Have been only adding mostly graphic novels to my galleys these days, but I occasionally slip up. *shrugs*
Haunted house mystery
“two teens who are determined to stay together in a world tearing them apart” one mentally ill teen and one delinquent teen have to contemplate running away
“Pan’s Labyrinth meets The Hazel Wood in this novel about a girl with terrifying visions and a wish-granting witch whose lives collide in the most unexpected of ways.” You know I am a sure thing for fairy tale like stories!

Adult fiction but I am interested in seeing how it takes on selkie myths. Supposedly, “based on a beloved Scottish legend”
Psychological mystery in which a girl can’t remember what horrible thing she did to be taken away from her family by a stranger.

Some interesting books I came across and added to my TBR:
A horror novel about five teens who play a familiar childhood game that is actually a deadly curse, and in Final Destination style, keep dying one after another. I found this thanks to its adaptation.
A Japanese light novel that entwines a hero-style quest with folklore, and about a mercenary warrior girl who saves a prince and helps him in his mission.
I found this while looking for my Diversity Spotlight Thursday post (can you believe there aren’t many more YA books with Japanese mythology elements even though it is such an interesting topic with so much potential?) and it is about a girl who is about to host a goddess, and who has a yokai beholden to her.
12 new books shelved this week!
