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!)

Hello everyone and good Monday!

I hope your week was good! We had an eventful and stressful one, and as is often the case, stress made me too distracted to do much reading. I started like 7 different books but finished only one… but I actually reviewed it! Have a look if you want to know my thoughts on the audio of One of Us is Lying !

I usually try not to buy more than I read (keyword being : try), but this week is particularly dramatic. Four of them were used/on sale though, so in terms of budget it’s not too bad, but I’m planning on not buying anything for a short while. We’ll see how well that holds soon!

This week I’m mostly excited for The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue, which I have heard amazing things about, and Wonder Woman Unbound, which should be interesting.

The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee (audio) – The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons – Updraft by Fran Wilde

The Map of Bones by Francesca Haig (audio) – Every Anxious Wave by Mo Daviau (audio) – Wonder Woman Unbound by Tim Hanley

What books did you recently add to your shelves?



  1. I just pulled three of your new books for further review to consider adding to my TBR. 🙂 It looks like a fun list – I hope you have a lovely and fulfilling reading week!

    • Oh! I am curious to know which 3 ones!
      Happy reading to you too! 🙂

  2. Oooh, I want the Wonder Woman book!

  3. One of Us is Lying sounds good! The Wonder Woman book looks tempting. Enjoy your week, and thanks for visiting my blog.

  4. The Bronze Horseman looks really good.

    ENJOY all of your books and your reading week.

  5. Really good pick-ups this week. I like three of these: The Bronze Horseman, Updraft and The Map Bones. And the others look good too.
    Hope you have a better week with less stress and Happy Reading!

  6. I saw one of my daughters last night and she mentioned her book group is reading The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue. Hope it’s a good read!

  7. I’ve been out of shelf space lately so have had to be strict – ALTHOUGH, I recently went on a bit of a nostalgia trip and bought loads of books….

  8. Yay for new reads but darn on the stress of the week. Hope this one has been a bit quieter for ya!

  9. I loved The Bronze Horseman, but I didn’t like the sequels as much. I did Updraft on audio and really liked it!
