Stacking the Shelves #13 & The Sunday Post #10

Stacking The Shelves by Tynga's Reviews is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.


I've been insanely busy this past week and I did not manage to post any book reviews last week :/ This post is also insanely late because I've been crazy busy despite the long weekend. I was filming for my film module the whole of Friday, then on Saturday, I had to attend an exhibition where one of my past projects were chosen as an exhibit and today was my grandmother's 80th birthday.

I am skipping school tomorrow because I didn't have time at all to prepare for the tutorial and also because I am exhausted. The last 2 weeks of school are going to be hell, I have so many assignments/projects due, I don't even know where to start. Wish me luck guys! I am going to try and keep up with blogging as much as possible!


On the Island: This is a very popular new adult novel so I decided to give this a go! I was super apprehensive about this because it involves a teacher-student relationship but I finished this in two seatings! Review to come :)


All of these books were thrifted and they are in brand new condition! :)

Game of Thrones: I've been meaning to read this for the longest time but the other covers just never appealed to me. I recently saw this cover and the entire series just looks so amazing together! I am so excited to start this series! :)

The Diviners: I just read A Great and Terrible Beauty and while I only gave it 3 stars, I did enjoy her writing style so I am curious to see how this one turns out!

The Cuckoo's Calling: Its J.K. Rowling and apparently this is better than Casual Vacancy!

A Monster Calls: This cover!! Also, everyone seems to love it!

A Tale for the Time Being: Mercedes from MercysBookishMusings recently read this and recommended it plus the premise just sounds so intriguing. I am looking forward to reading about the Tsunami.

  1. Sometimes RL gets in the way of things. Just concentrate on one thing at a time I say. You sound like you'r'e busy. You got some amazing books.

    Grace @ Books of Love

    1. Thanks Grace, that's great advice! :) I have always had a problem with giving myself a little slack, I am working on it.

      Thanks for dropping by!

  2. Grace is totally right! Just concentrate on the important things right now ... school might be annoying and stressful but 2 weeks are faster over than you think! :)

    You've got some pretty awesome books there! I love the cover for Game of Thrones and wanted to watch the show at least ... I've only heard good of it but I doubt I'll ever read the books. They're freaking HUGE! :O And ahhhh, A Monster Calls! I'm so excited for this one - definitely need to buy this sometime soon ... it looks so pretty!

    Have a good week! :)
    Yvonne @ A World Between Folded Pages

    1. Yes, that's what I am telling myself too! :)

      I love the show and i heard the books are even better so I decided to pick it up! And yes I prefer this cover of A Monster Calls to the other dark and creepy one.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Pretty much all the books you hauled are on my TBR. I haven't heard much about A Tale for the Time Being, but what I have heard is practically all praise. Hope you enjoy the books! Great haul!

  4. I have a copy of GoT with the same cover. It's very pretty! I love the TV series, but I still haven't got round to starting the books yet. Soon, I hope!

    Shaunna @ Books Over Bros x

    1. Same! I love the TV series and I really want to check out the books too :)

      Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Nice haul! Lovely books. Real life is kicking me in the butt right now. The past two weeks have been super busy and it looks like I'm going into this week with a cold. Ugh. Enjoy your books! Good luck with school!
