Filling the Shelf – 250

Welcome to Filling the Shelf, or as many of you know it, Mailbox Monday! If you’re interested in joining the fun or seeing what other bloggers added to their shelves, click away! (but beware, visiting other mailboxes will probably add to your neverending wishlist!)

Good Monday everyone!

It’s May already! April ended for me with reading The Handmaid’s Tale, which was really good. I think I enjoyed it less than I should have because of the reading slump I found myself in midway through, but the more I reflect back on it and read discussions about it, the more I appreciate the different aspects of it. I love Margaret Atwood’s writing, that’s for sure!

Earlier this week, I also shared my thoughts on Carry On, which I mostly enjoyed. It echoed my current Harry Potter reread nicely!

And now, for the new books. You guys know I can’t resist a good thriller, so of course I grabbed Gone Without a Trace. But I also added some long wished for fantasy & sci-fi novels. As I reach the end of my last (sob!) Harry Potter audiobook, I am really excited to jump into something new and unique. I’ve heard great things about Twelve Kings in Sharakhai and I absolutely loved the sample I listened to, so I am really looking forward to it!


Twelve Kings in Sharakhai by Bradley P. Beaulieu (audio) – Gone Without a Trace by Mary Torjussen


Defy the Stars by Claudia Gray Ghost Talkers by Mary Robinette Kowal

What books did you recently add to your shelves?



  1. I can’t believe it’s May 1st. Hope you love your new books!

  2. Gone Without a Trace looks good to me.

  3. I read The Handmaid’s Tale twice, and saw a movie based on the book a few years ago. Now there is a show on Hulu drawn from the book. I added it to my queue.

    Gone Without a Trace looks like a book I would love! Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

  4. Time goes way too quickly.

    ENJOY your reading week….nice covers.

  5. I figure I’ll get to the Handmaid’s Tale someday. I’ll have to take a look at Twelve Kings but Ghost Talkers really got my attention. Sounds good. Hope you enjoy all of your books. Happy Reading!

  6. I’ve tried The Handmaid’s Tale twice already. I know it’s me [I suffer from a chronic reading condition of being a DNFer] so I’ll try again 🙂 Ghost Talker sounds so good! The afterlife and WWI?? Two of my favorite topics! can’t wait for your review 🙂
