Stacking the shelves

Stacking the Shelves – 30/01/2021 (Feat. January Illumicrate)

Hey friends. Today I am bringing you this weeks Stacking the Shelves. Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and Reading Reality. All you have to do is share what books you got in the previous week. You can find more information here. Read on to see all the books I have acquired in the last week.

A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #1)When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a terrifying creature arrives to demand retribution. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she knows about only from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not truly a beast, but one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled her world.

At least, he’s not a beast all the time.

As she adapts to her new home, her feelings for the faerie, Tamlin, transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie she’s been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But something is not right in the faerie lands. An ancient, wicked shadow is growing, and Feyre must find a way to stop it, or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.

I already own and have read this series in the UK paperbacks, and I wasn’t planning on buying the new hardcovers because I really hate the cover design, but I have preordered the Illumicrate box that comes with dust jackets for the whole series, so I decided to get the hardcovers after all. They all arrived this week, and now I’m super excited for my dust jackets to arrive.

The Secret GardenMary Lennox was horrid. Selfish and spoilt, she was sent to stay with her hunchback uncle in Yorkshire. She hated it.

But when she finds the way into a secret garden and begins to tend to it, a change comes over her and her life. She meets and befriends a local boy, the talented Dickon, and comes across her sickly cousin Colin who had been kept hidden from her. Between them, the three children work astonishing magic in themselves and those around them.

The Secret Garden is one of the best-loved stories of all time.

The Secret Garden is one of my favourite books of all time, and this is my 8th edition of the book. Beth recently got it, and it was so pretty I knew I had to get it too.

Winter's OrbitWhile the Iskat Empire has long dominated the system through treaties and political alliances, several planets, including Thea, have begun to chafe under Iskat’s rule. When tragedy befalls Imperial Prince Taam, his Thean widower, Jainan, is rushed into an arranged marriage with Taam’s cousin, the disreputable Kiem, in a bid to keep the rising hostilities between the two worlds under control.

But when it comes to light that Prince Taam’s death may not have been an accident, and that Jainan himself may be a suspect, the unlikely pair must overcome their misgivings and learn to trust one another as they navigate the perils of the Iskat court, try to solve a murder, and prevent an interplanetary war… all while dealing with their growing feelings for each other.

This book came in the January Illumicrate, and I’m really intrigued by the sound of it. I’d never heard of it before now, but I’m excited to give it a try!

Space Detectives by Mark Powers

Dog lost in space? Grown an extra head and don’t know why? Pocket money stolen by a green blob? You need the Space Detectives!

Connor and Ethan are spending their summer holidays aboard the world’s first orbiting city, Starville (basically Beverley Hills in space!). The amazing space station is bursting with celebrities and the mega-rich. But Connor and Ethan are too busy selling ice cream to see the sights.

However, neither of our heroes can resist a mystery and when they discover the space station is hurtling on a collision course with the moon (eep!) they know they need to step in. This is a case for the SPACE DETECTIVES!

Can Connor and Ethan find the culprit and save Starville from its impending doom?

I’m on the blog tour for this book, and it sounds super cute.
