Stacking the Shelves: December Book Haul Part One

Stacking the Shelves is a meme co-hosted by Reading Reality and Tynga's Reviews. Each week bloggers share the books they got. These are the books I got in the first part of December.

1. Manhattan Beach by Jennifer Egan  


2. Idaho by Emily Ruskovich


I was approved to read this on Netgalley but since I was new then, I didn't realise I only had a certain amount of time to read it. Soooo, that's why I had to buy it now.

3. The Robber Bride by Margaret Atwood


This is the next Atwood book that's been recommended to me. I always love getting new recommendations! Previously, I read The Blind Assassin, The Handmaid's Tale and Alias Grace. I gave them all 5 stars.

4. The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer


I had to teach The Wife of Bath's Tale and The Miller's Tale during my teaching practice and I decided I needed an actual copy of the book as well.

5. A Plague of Giants (Seven Kennings #1) by Kevin Hearne


This was in my October Page Habit box and I forgot to mention it in my last two hauls. Oops.

6. The Last Namsara (Iskari #1) by Kristen Ciccarelli


November Fairyloot box.

7. Furyborn (Empirium #1) by Claire Legrand 


November Fairyloot box. So excited to read it!

And now the books I got from my wonderful Broke and Bookish Secret Santa!

8. Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia 


Currently reading it and loving it!

9. Half Bad (The Half Bad Trilogy #1) by Sally Green


I've heard this is about witches and that's all I need to be excited about it!


Which books did you recently get? Have you read any of the ones mentioned above or are you planning to? Which book should I read first? Leave your thoughts down below!

Have a wonderful New Year!

  1. I decided not to go with the new Kevin Hearne series as I don't think the format suits me and reviews on it have been mixed. Still, the last Iron Druid novel comes out next year so I'm looking forward to that!

    1. Not sure I would have bought this myself either, I'm planning to check out the Iron Druid series first, though! I've heard such good things!

  2. I need to get round to The Last Namsara -- the summary sounded so interesting, but I haven't yet picked it up. Here's hoping we both enjoy!

  3. The Robber Bride is one of my all-time favorites. I adored The Blind Assassin, too. Eliza and Her Monsters was also fun. I love a book with "extras." Happy reading and New Year!
