Book Haul: It Was An Accident, I Swear



Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. I get to show off all the books I’ve gotten recently. I didn’t mean to get new books, but somehow that’s what happened. In my defense, one of them was a preorder and one was free. The other three . . . I have no excuses.






It Was An Accident, I Swear







The Gentleman’s Guide To Getting Lucky (Montague Siblings #1.5) by Mackenzi Lee




In The Gentleman’s Guide to Getting Lucky, Monty’s epic grand tour may be over, but now that he and Percy are finally a couple, he realizes there is something more nerve-wracking than being chased across Europe: getting together with the person you love. Will the romantic allure of Santorini make his first time with Percy magical, or will all the anticipation and build-up completely spoil the mood?

















Bridge Of Clay by Markus Zusak



Bridge of Clay is about a boy who is caught in the current—of destroying everything he has, to become all he needs to be. He's a boy in search of greatness, as a cure for memory and tragedy. He builds a bridge to save his family, but also to save himself.




















Three Things About Elsie by Joanna Cannon



Eighty-four-year-old Florence has fallen in her flat at Cherry Tree Home for the Elderly. As she waits to be rescued, she wonders if a terrible secret from her past is about to come to light. If the charming new resident is who he claims to be, why does he look exactly like a man who died sixty years ago?





















Best-Loved Folktales Of The World by Joanna Cole



A collection of over 200 folk and fairy tales from all over the world, this is the only edition that encompasses all cultures.





















Stalking Jack The Ripper (Stalking Jack The Ripper #1) by Kerri Maniscalco



Seventeen-year-old Audrey Rose Wadsworth was born a lord's daughter, with a life of wealth and privilege stretched out before her. But between the social teas and silk dress fittings, she leads a forbidden secret life.

Against her stern father's wishes and society's expectations, Audrey often slips away to her uncle's laboratory to study the gruesome practice of forensic medicine. When her work on a string of savagely killed corpses drags Audrey into the investigation of a serial murderer, her search for answers brings her close to her own sheltered world.









Have you read any of these? What did you think?

  4. Isn't it so strange and totally unavoidable when books just FLING themselves into your shopping cart? They should really be more careful.

  14. I wanted to read Three Things About Elsie, but I decided to put it off for a bit. I started Stalking Jack The Ripper and made it to page 37 and had to put it down, maybe one day I'll pick it up soon. I picked up the second book, because who doesn't like Dracula?! It's hard not to accidentally bring home books, I hope you enjoy them all. Have a lovely week.

  16. Thanks for stopping by my stack. I didn't know there was a Gentleman's Guide novella! Loved the first one and can't wait to get to the second but have to wait because I'm a middle grade fiction judge for round one of the Cybils Awards and have to read oh, 90 books in the next few weeks, lol!

    I also sympathize with your accidents. Enjoy your haul.

  19. I’ve read Stalking Jack the Ripper and the rest of the series that is out as of today and can say that they are all amazing. I can’t get over this great series.

    Hope you have a great week ahead. 💋 xoxo

    1. I put off Stalking Jack the Ripper, too. There’s a lot of hype, and I’m not sure if it’s too thriller-ish for me, but I’ll give it a shot.

    1. I’m glad you liked Stalking Jack the Ripper! Bridge of Clay is ugly, especially on the internet. In person, you can see how shiny it is, so that makes it a little better.
