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.
Though this is a weekly haul meme, *I* will be doing this fortnightly from now on, alternating these with the Offloading the TBR posts.
“An outcast teenage lesbian witch finds her coven hidden amongst the popular girls in her school, and performs some seriously badass magic in the process.” This book had me at lesbian witch.
Not Your Idol, Vol 1 by Aoi Makino
“A psychological suspense series about a girl who has given up her life as an idol after being assaulted by a fan. After that day, she stopped being a girl.“
Prelude to the Lost Souls by Keiko Ishihara
“Seventeen-year-old Dec Hampton knows there are no coincidences in St. Hilaire, New York, the spiritualist community he’s longing to leave. So when the train of Annie Krylova, the piano prodigy he’s captivated by, breaks down outside of town, he’s forced to take her sudden entry into his life seriously… just like the unexpected reappearance of Tristan, the childhood friend he’d assumed – and hoped – was imaginary.“
Nomen Omen, Vol 1 by Marco B Bucci
“Becky Kumar is a daughter of three mothers, a geeky twenty-year-old from New York City who is about to cross the veil between our reality and an ancient realm of otherworldly truths. “
Sera, Vol 1 by Jon Tsuei
This somewhat reminded me of Rg Veda – it is about a princess has to collect six Royal Stars to return to heaven, so that she can save her kingdom from ruin.
Look, girls teaming up to take down the patriarchy plots are like catnip to me, okay?
The Invention of Sophie Carter by Samantha Hastings
“Identical twin sisters take turns swapping places over the course of a summer in order to pursue their secret ambitions in Samantha Hastings’ Victorian YA romance.“
Shelved to Goodreads
A cat wishes to be a human boy for his ninth life to spend with it with a girl he loves, but he is also drawn to his handsome roommate!
The Wolf and the Woodsman by Ava Reid
“Inspired by Hungarian history and Jewish mythology, a story of magic and faith, storytelling and tradition, belonging and violence, in which a pagan woman is betrayed by her village and thrust into a hostile world where a vengeful cleric seeking religious purity has risen to power.“
Mostly I was interested because, you know, Hiromu Arakawa, the one who gave us Fullmetal Alchemist! The story is about a city boy who enrolls for an agricultural school thinking it will be a cakewalk.
