Time to look at the books I added to my shelves this week with Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga's Reviews! Not necessarily books I bought - also includes books I borrowed, was given or otherwise ended up with. Weeks I don't buy any books I'll scramble around my shelves and find some I haven't shared in an StS post yet!

Hold Me Closer - David Levithan
The Last Good Paradise - Tatjana Soli

Let Fury Have the Hour - Antonino D'Ambrosio
Best Sex Writing of the Year - Jon Pressick, ed.

I'm not sure what to expect from Hold Me Closer. I thought Tiny was one of the characters in John Green's chapters of Will Grayson, Will Grayson, so I was surprised that the Tiny Cooper story was written by David Levithan. Then again, maybe I was wrong about that! Either way, Tiny was such a wonderful character that of course I have to read his story. And I've heard nothing but good things. The rest are a pretty eclectic mix of books, all of which I'm excited to read, all for different reasons. Best Sex Writing is a series of books that Cleis Press has been coming out with annually for over 10 years now, and is always worth reading. Let Fury Have the Hour... to be totally honest, I mostly wanted to read this on account of the cover, which is by one of my favourite artists, Shephard Fairey.

What about you guys? Have you read any of these books? Did you pick up any exciting titles in the past week? Share in the comments!


  1. Great hauL! I really need to start reading David Levithan's books. They sound so amazing! I hope you enjoy everything. :D

    1. Thanks! I've only read two books by Levithan - and one of them he co-wrote with John Green. But it was excellent, and Tiny Cooper was one of my favourite characters in it (probably one of my fave YA characters all around) so I'm curious to read more!
