Book Haul

Stacking The Shelves 01/08/22

Stacking The Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and Reading Reality all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in a physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts, and of course ebooks!

Hi friends! I hope you are having a good weekend so far. Mine has been busy with trying to read my Winterween books before the readathon ends tomorrow. Thankfully my TBR was a short one. I might finish it if I just focus on reading the rest of the day. It’s possible right? I think I’ll look on YouTube for some reading sprints or a read with me video to help me. If you know of any channels that host them please let me know.

I stayed away from Kindle deals this week. Go me! My wallet totally thanks me for it. I did get approved for an audiobook and two eBooks via NetGalley.

I heard really good things about a Daughter of the Moon Goddess by Sue Lynn Tan. I’m glad because I requested it because the cover is gorgeous. Yes, it was a cover pick. Are we surprised? No, we are not. Have you heard of this one? It is a debut novel and the first book in The Celestial Kingdom Duology. It follows Xingyin and her quest to free her mother. It is a YA Fantasy and retelling inspired by the legend of the Chinese moon goddess, Chang’e. It sounds like it will be an epic read.

I also got the audiobook of Flicker in The Dark. This book is currently pretty hyped on BookTube. This is a debut psychological thriller narrated by Karissa Vacker. When Chloe was twelve years old, six teenage girls went missing in her small town. By the end of that summer, her father had been arrested and placed in prison. Now, 20 years later, local girls are disappearing again and the similarities in the cases have the memories of that summer resurfacing again. It is supposed to be fairly creepy and I can’t wait to listen to this thriller. I’m going to see if I can squeeze it into my January reading. It would be perfect for Winterween.

Chef’s Kiss is a cute queer romance graphic novel. I received a review copy from the publisher via NetGalley. It has sweet romantic vibes, yummy food and a cute pig. I’m currently reading this one. I’m on page 39 and loving it. Keep an eye out for the review that will be posted on the blog soon.

I know it isn’t a very large haul this week. After the larger hauls from the last few weeks, it is perfectly fine by me. I need to start reading some of these and get some reviews up on the blog. One of my intentions for 2022 is to post my reviews as soon as possible after finishing the book so I don’t end up with the backlog I always end up with every month.

Let’s chat down below. Have you read these? Did you do an STS post? Do you have any book recommendations for me? Please let me know down below so I can check them out.

As always keep on reading and stay book nerdy my friends!
