Stacking the Shelves is a meme co-hosted by Tynga at Tynga’s Reviews and Marlene at Reading Reality, where you share the books you’ve added to your shelves in the past week. You can include books you buy, books you borrow, review books, gifts, and ebooks.
Since I failed to do Stacking the Shelves last week, I’ll be sharing all the books I’ve added for the last two weeks in this post. Will there be a lot of books, or just a few? Let’s find out, shall we?
I took a moment to count, and discovered I managed to add eighteen titles to my TBR in the last two weeks. (And there you have it—proof that I’m pretty much incapable of passing up a book that catches my interest!) The genres spanned a slightly wider spectrum this time around, but were mainly comprised of my favorites. The chosen fiction genres were historical fiction, women’s fiction, literary fiction, a variety of thrillers (including psychological, crime, and domestic thrillers), gothic, and family drama. Nonfiction genre selections were biography and history.
In addition to books set during World War II, I also seem to be drawn to books with ‘Orphan’ in the title. I’ve added three ‘Orphan’ books since December, and requested another on Edelweiss. (Unfortunately, that request was declined.) I wonder how often my reading choices for any given year were influenced by me becoming hyper-focused on a particular subject or time period? I’ve never noticed it before… but then again, I wasn’t blogging about TBR additions (mostly) weekly, either!
Here are the books I added to my TBR in the last two weeks (links below).
