Stacking The Shelves #76

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.

Okay a bigger haul this week than intended, but Macmillan had the 2020 galleys out and how could I say no to any of these gems?!

  1. Wow!! So many great books! I’m really excited about McGinnis’ Be Not Far From Me, she’s one of my auto-buy authors. And Jenny Lee’s retelling of Anna Karenina sounds great, I’ll have to grab a copy of that when it comes out.

  2. Yes No Maybe So sounds so good being a cross cultural romance. Can’t wait to know your thoughts about it. Lowkey jealous of so many amazing titles you’ve recently hauled ❤
