Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga where we share books we’ve bought or received this week. Find out more and join in here!
Hi all! It’s only been a few weeks since my last Stacking the Shelves post, but I’ve gathered quite a few books since then…I’ve been trying to focus on buying books that are not quite as readily available as others, which means I’ve been going a bit mad!
France, 1714: in a moment of desperation, a young woman makes a Faustian bargain to live forever and is cursed to be forgotten by everyone she meets.
Thus begins the extraordinary life of Addie LaRue, and a dazzling adventure that will play out across centuries and continents, across history and art, as a young woman learns how far she will go to leave her mark on the world.
But everything changes when, after nearly 300 years, Addie stumbles across a young man in a hidden bookstore and he remembers her name.
I managed to snag myself a copy of the Illumicrate copy of Addie Larue, which might be my favourite edition. It’s so pretty!
Returning home from his lavish eighteenth birthday party, Bruce Wayne stops a criminal’s getaway – disobeying the police and crashing his car during the chase.
Sentenced to community service in Gotham City’s Arkham Asylum, he encounters some of the the city’s most dangerous and mentally disturbed criminals. Among these, Bruce meets the intriguing Madeleine who has ties to the Nightwalker gang that is terrorizing Gotham City.
She’s a mystery Bruce has to unravel but can he trust her? The Nightwalkers target the rich, and Bruce’s name is next on their list.
I also managed to find myself a second-hand copy of this hardback and have finally finished my hardback collection. They look so nice together and I can’t wait to dive in!
I read The Bone Witch back in November and I decided to grab a copy of the second book.
I also nabbed a few books that I’ve already read – one of those being The Crow Rider. I read this as an eARC before the book came out, and finally got a hardback to match the first book. I really enjoyed these and how they handle mental illness in a fantasy environment.
Simon Lewis has been a human and a vampire, but after the events of City of Heavenly Fire left him stripped of his memories, he isn’t sure who he is any more.
When the Shadowhunter Academy reopens, Simon throws himself into this new world of demon-hunting, determined to find himself again.
Whoever this Simon might be…
Join him on his journey to become a Shadowhunter, and learn about the Academy’s illustrious history along the way, through guest lecturers such as Jace Herondale, Tessa Gray and Magnus Bane. The series features characters from Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments, Infernal Devices, Dark Artifices and the upcoming Last Hours series.
I borrowed this one from a friend years ago and never got my on copy, so I finally grabbed one!
I also got the third book in this series to complete the set and I’m really looking forward to reading the second and third.
What have you bought this week?
May your shelves forever overflow with books! ☽
