Stacking the Shelves (Mar 28)


Stacking the Shelves is all about the books we are adding to our shelves, physical or virtual, and sharing our excitement about our new titles. And why not, maybe also finding a great new read in the process! This weekly meme is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.

Aaaaand... Another month has gone by! I just cannot believe it, it seems like yesterday I was writing this about February, and now it's the end of March already. Time is definitely flying by really quickly, although that's not necessarily a bad thing. At least now we can start to hope that spring will finally arrive, and that the long days of bad weather and cold are finally over. So, what happened during last week? Well, as I told you in my last Weekly Recap, I took part in an International Literature Festival in Venice as a volunteer. It was FANTASTIC to see so many talented authors and lovely volunteers come together from around the world to share their experiences and their love for books. Of course, I would have enjoyed it SOOOO much more if I hadn't fallen ill halfway through, which caused me to miss out on basically everything that happened in the second half of the week. But hey, that's life I guess.

Book-wise, it was a pretty good week. I've been sticking to my book ban, so YAY for my self-restraint. I'm not sure how long it will last, so I think I better celebrate while I still can. I didn't get that many new books this week, except for a few e-galleys that I had requested through NetGalley a long time ago. Although, actually, it may not have been that long ago after all. But let's see those books now, shall we?

This week I got...

       
Don't Turn Around by Caroline Mitchell - I'm really intrigued by the blurb of this one, and I need a good crime novel right now, so I can't wait to delve deep into this. Thanks to Bookouture and NetGalley for the e-arc!
Witch Hunter by Virginia Boecker - I am really, really wanted to read this, so I was beyond excited when I found out I got approved for it on NetGalley. I mean, deadly 16-year-old witch hunter? Count me in! Many thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for this!
Death Wish (Ceruleans #1) by Megan Tayte - This looks like a cool new series. A big thanks to the author for reaching out to me and sending me a copy!

Well, that's me for this week! How was your week? Link up in the comments!
