Stacking The Shelves #71

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.

Macmillan broke through my weak goals of ‘don’t add too many books’ by releasing loads of galleys this week (and apparently I can access almost all of them direct to download, no requesting nonsense? I don’t know who added me to the auto-approved list but I am so thankful)

But then you should have heard my squeals when I got the galleys for Belle Revolte, The Shadows Between Us, Dark and Deepest Red and The Silence of Bones

It’s been a while since I have read this author’s work, so I was excited to see that she is writing another YA thriller. This one is about a kidnapped girl who returns home, is trying to process through the seven months of her captivity, and finding that maybe there’s more to the story.

    • Oh, I’m not sure! But since I can access most of their galleys now when I couldn’t before, I was sorta joking that I’m now on the auto approval list 😁 in any case, though, I’m quite happy about it
