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
It looks like a lot but most of these are manga sequel adds!

Love After the End:An Anthology of Two-Spirit and Indigiqueer Speculative Fiction (edited) by Joshua Whitehead
