Stacking the Shelves is a weekly event hosted by Tynga's Reviews where I share  books acquired recently.

This stack right here is from the past month, a product of a couple of pre-orders, a visit to my favorite independent used bookstore, and another bookstore visit prompted by my need to escape a rainstorm and an inability to leave without buying something:

Gilead by Marilynne Robinson
The Islands of Chaldea by Diana Wynne Jones and Ursula Jones
Otherbound by Corinne Duyvis
Euphoria by Lily King
Alias Hook by Lisa Jensen
Conversion by Katherine Howe
The Quick by Lauren Owen

Also a couple of titles from Netgalley:

Neverhome by Laird Hunt 
The Vault of Dreamers by Caragh M. O'Brien

I think I'm set for book buying for the summer, but I'll probably be at the library next week looking for something new.

As Grace says, "The Vault of Dreamers" is very popular this week. I've seen it on several blogs. After checking out the plot, I jumped on the bandwagon, and added it to my Goodreads shelves. It really DOES look great!!

As for the other books, I'll have to bookmark this page so I can come back and add them to my shelves. They do look intriguing, though.

I can sympathize with you about not being able to leave a bookstore without buying something. That's my little problem, too! Lol. And what better place to wait out a rainstorm than a bookstore? So cozy....

Hope you enjoy all your treasures!! : )

I have Vault of Dreamers and though that giant eyeball is freaking me out, I'm looking forward to reading it. Loved A. J. Fikry so much :)

I agree, it's a pleasant surprise in the mailbox :)

Great, I'm looking forward to A.J. Fikry. The eyeball is a little intense, I feel it's judging me :)

JaimeLH said...

Thank you! Otherbound sounded really original, hopefully it lives up to the buzz.

Glad to hear about your interest in The Vault of Dreamers! It looks like a very interesting science fiction concept.
I agree, a bookstore's a great place to wait out a rainstorm. I probably could have made a run for the train, but I take any excuse to be around books :)
