Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature hosted by Tynga’s Reviews where bloggers share the books that they’ve added to their shelves this week, whether borrowed, bought, virtual, physical, etc!
This is actually what I’ve accumulated over the past few weeks! I scooped up Dorothy Must Die and The One at Target on Black Friday (hardcover, both for under $10!) and was gifted The Book Thief by my aunt. I haven’t read any of these yet so I’m really excited to get around to them (probably not until after the holidays though!)
I was also gifted my aunt’s collection of Jane Austen novels (included was Sense and Sensibility as well, but it’s currently on my nightstand). I’ve yet to read anything by Austen (I KNOW, how did I graduate as an English major? I chose to focus my British literature courses on the earlier stuff such as Anglo-Saxon epics, King Arthur, Paradise Lost, etc). So if you have any recommendations as to what would be the best novel to start with to get into Jane Austen’s work, I’d love to know!
I’m still not as used to e-books as I am physical copies, but I downloaded the novella Gilded Ashes by Rosamund Hodge because I loved Cruel Beauty, and this is set in the same universe! I’m so excited to read this and hope it will tide me over until Crimson Bound is released!
Did you add anything new to your shelves this week?
I really enjoyed The One, definitely a sad but really great end to an epic series. As for Jane Austen I have yet to venture down the road, your not alone 🙂
Thank you! I am so excited to read The One with The Heir coming out so soon! I also need to read all of the novellas that are a part of the series! Thanks for stopping by 🙂
I adored The Book Thief. I think it takes a while to get used to, but once you’re used to the style I think it’s incredibly enjoyable!
I’ve heard that it’s at times a difficult but definitely a worthwhile read! I also heard it’s really sad…so I’ll need to save it for a time I’m ready to deal with that!
The Book Thief is one of my favorites!
It’s made a lot of top lists on blogs I’ve seen!
OMG you need to start on Jane Austen. Sense and Sensibility would be the best start I think. Pride & Prejudice can either make or break the deal so I wouldn’t start there 🙂
I have Sense and Sensibility on my nightstand right now, ready to go! Fingers crossed that I love it!
Been wanting to read Dorthy Must Die! Looks like a great retelling. Enjoy! Happy Reading & Happy Holidays!
I love that it focuses on a non “princess” fairytale for a retelling! Thanks for stopping by 🙂
[…] for Black Friday deals *coughbookscough* and I scooped up a few new titles (which you can see in my STS post) and my boyfriend took the plunge and got a PS4. That same weekend my family and I went to our […]
Great haul this week. I’ve heard good things about Dorothy Must Die and have been contemplating reading it for the longest time now. I hope you enjoy all of your reads 🙂
