Filling the Shelf – 16
Filling the Shelf is basically Mailbox Monday (created by The Printed Page) or In my Mailbox (created by The Story Siren ), but with a title that suits my blog If you’re interested in joining the fun or seeing what other bloggers added to their shelves, I invite you to visit those two awesome bloggers!
We received many things in the mail last Thursday : the Rome box set, our travel guide to Paris (we are officially going at the end of April!), and a few other things, among which, books! I’m always happy when books come home, especially on a bad day. I also did a lot of bookshopping.
Here’s what joined the TBR pile recently :
Willow by Julia Hoban : I have seen this YA novel around a lot and meant to read it; the paperback coming out was the perfect occasion.
When we Were Orphans by Kazuo Ishiguro : I loved Never let me Go, but I hadn’t decided which book of Ishiguro I wanted to read next. I found this one at the used bookstore, so I guess this is it. I haven’t heard much about this one.
Notes on a Scandal by Zoë Heller : Even before getting The Believers, I wanted to read this one. Again, I found this one at the used bookstore. I was lucky!
The Swan Thieves by Elizabeth Kostova : I guess the author came to the bookstore and I missed it, because this copy is signed by the author! I love that it’s signed, and I can’t wait to read it.
Veracity by Layra Bynum : This is a dystopian novel, which I’ve read a few good reviews of, and I was curious about it. Same thing goes for :
The Things that Keep us Here by Carla Buckley : Which also has a beautiful cover.
Have you read any of these books? Any recommendation as to which one I should begin with first? What did you add on your own shelves this week?
