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!
Because it was recently my birthday, I've been a bit spoiled! My brother- and sister-in-law got me these two lovely books:
In the Blood - Lisa Unger
War of the Encyclopaedists - Christopher Robinson & Gavin Kovite
I went book shopping with my cousin and spent some of my birthday money at Munro's (two of these were even in the clearance section!):
Rules of Civility - Amor Towles
Shakespeare Wrote for Money - Nick Hornby
The Humans - Matt Haig
And at Russell's on some used and discount volumes and picked up one book at Chapter's:
Wildwood - Colin Meloy & Carson Ellis
"Who Could That Be at This Hour?" - Lemony Snicket
The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls - Anton DiSclafani
I also picked up this absolutely gorgeous volume from Russell's. It's a Folio hardbound edition with a slipcover, and it's got amazing illustrations. This is a book I absolutely adore, having had it read to me as a child. Yes, it was wildly inappropriate for a kid, but I loved it and it has a place in my all-time favourites.
Travels With My Aunt - Graham Greene
A very exciting week for me! What did you guys add to your shelves? Anything new or that you've been coveting for ages?
