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.
Always check both blurb and author before adding, folks, is all I am going to say about this week’s haul!
Lost and Found by Orson Scott Card
About a boy who has a superpower to find objects. The blurb was interesting but my idiot brain didn’t register the author’s name UGH. Now I don’t want to read this book written by a racist homophobe.
RoadQueen by Mira Ong Chua
Lesbians and bikers – what a combination! It is a yuri romance manga about a popular lesbian, who girls try to defeat in a race just to date her, who has her bike (and her heart) stolen.

This book had me at ‘queer witches’
Suzanne Collins just came out of whichever rock she was under to give us a prequel to The Hunger Games! Okay, I’ll admit I wasn’t as excited when I first heard because I kinda didn’t want it, but then the possibility that it might be Mags’ story had me adding it to my TBR, just in case.
This book caught my eye because of the cover reveal on Twitter – that is an embroidery design! (go take a closer look on Goodreads maybe?) It is “pitched as Downton Abbey with magic. The novel is set in 19th-century Copenhagen and follows an orphaned seamstress who goes to work for a retired ballerina and uses her magic to investigate her father’s mysterious death while working for the same family years ago.“
Another find from cover reveals on Twitter – it is a “thriller told from the perspective of everyone except the alleged killer— a seventeen-year-old girl.”
