Stacking the Shelves (20)

tacking The Shelves by Tynga's Reviews is a feature/blog hop, where fellow book bloggers like myself can share what books or ARCs we received, bought or borrowed.

Letterbox Love is a new weekly meme hosted by Narratively Speaking. UK book bloggers have joined together and made a British version of a mailbox meme which is excellent. As I already participate in Stacking the Shelves, I will be adding this to my list too.

Hello my fellow Escapists,

Sorry about the absence on the blogosphere recently. I just had a hectic week, hence the lack of reviews. I have a few books I received that I'd like to share.

Look at the beauty!  This is a classic reprint of The Master and the Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov.I was surprised good good it looked when it arrived in the post. It's hardback with beautifully crafted illustration on the cover and the inside. The photo doesn't do it justice. Thank you Folio Society!

Another wonderful book that I received last week is Writing Britain (Wastelands to Wonderlands).    Its a great book which maps out the writing history of our nation.Thank you British Libraries / British authors.

I won this hilarious book from Penguin last week. It's rude, obnoxious and funny. Thank you Penguin!

I won this book from Serendipity Reviews two weeks ago. I already had this as an e-format but I'm glad I got a paperback too. I loved this book and can't wait for the second book. Read my review here.

What books did you stack in your shelf? Share with me.

I loved Throne of Glass, and you've reminded me that I need to buy it so I have a hardcopy!

Nice haul.

Wastelands to Wonderlands sounds fascinating as there's a rich and diverse pool of writing in Britain.

Throne of Glass is already on my Wish List and I saw a copy in Waterstones yesterday which made me think that I want this book.

Happy reading.

Please check out my haul for this week at
