Stacking The Shelves

Stacking the shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves. These can be physical books or e-books. Books you have bought or borrowed, or have been given. All can be added.

This week I have been approved for two books, and received two corkers through the post. Books seem to be building up again, but I am on holiday at the end of next week so hopefully will read a few sitting in the sun by the pool. 🙂

 

First up is The Ballroom by Anna Hope.

Where love is your only escape ….

1911: Inside an asylum at the edge of the Yorkshire moors,
where men and women are kept apart
by high walls and barred windows,
there is a ballroom vast and beautiful.
For one bright evening every week
they come together
and dance.
When John and Ella meet
It is a dance that will change
two lives forever.

Set over the heatwave summer of 1911, the end of the Edwardian era, THE BALLROOM is a tale of unlikely love and dangerous obsession, of madness and sanity, and of who gets to decide which is which.

I have heard so much about this book and it is really highly reviewed, so I am really looking forward to it.

 

Next up is The One-In-A-Million-Boy by Monica Wood

 

one in a million boy

 

Miss Ona Vitkus has – aside from three months in the summer of 1914 – lived unobtrusively, her secrets fiercely protected.

The boy, with his passion for world records, changes all that. He is eleven. She is one hundred and four years, one hundred and thirty three days old (they are counting). And he makes her feel like she might be really special after all. Better late than never…

Only it’s been two weeks now since he last visited, and she’s starting to think he’s not so different from all the rest.

Then the boy’s father comes, for some reason determined to finish his son’s good deed. And Ona must show this new stranger that not only are there odd jobs to be done, but a life’s ambition to complete . . .

Sounds so good.

 

Next Up my first book post, Alone In The Dark by Karen Rose.

 

alone in the dark

 

Homicide Detective Scarlett Bishop has seen enough bad guys slip through the cracks and too many innocent victims go unavenged to know good doesn’t always prevail. So far she’s been able to lock away her rage and her vigilante fantasies. That lock is about to break.

Former Army Ranger Marcus O’Bannion is a fierce champion of victims’ rights. His secret past gives him good reason. He believes he’s seen the depths of human depravity, but then his investigation into the murder of a young girl who once asked for his help lures him and Scarlett down a dark, dark road—and straight into the crosshairs of a dangerous, powerful underground ring that deals in human trade. To stop them, Scarlett and Marcus have to be just as cunning and just as ruthless. But first they have to make it out alive.

Love Karen Rose….

 

My best moment of the week was when this little beauty popped through my letter box along with a 7″ single! Yay.  David’s last book, The Last Days Of Disco was one of my top books of 2015 (read my review here )

The Rise and Fall of the Miraculous Vespas is the timeless story of the quest for pop immortality. When a young Ayrshire band miraculously hits the big time with the smash hit record of 1984, international stardom beckons. That’s despite having a delusional teenage manager guided by malevolent voices… Can Max Mojo’s band of talented band of social misfits repeat their success and pay back an increasingly agitated cartel of local gangsters? Or will they have to kidnap Boy George and hope for the best? Features much loved characters from The Last Days of Disco.

I absolutely cannot wait to read this book!!

So that’s my haul for this week, and I am looking forward to all of them.  What are you reading? Feel free to leave a link. 🙂
