Stacking the Shelves – Nov 5

Happy Saturday, reading friends! 💜 Stacking The Shelves is a weekly prompt hosted by Marlene of Reading Reality where we share the books we’re adding to our shelves, whether they’re physical or virtual. I heavily utilize my local library, so the books I showcase here may be either newly borrowed or newly owned. 😊

I think I’ve somehow managed to pick up a bug. I’ve been dealing with muscle aches, headache, and nausea since yesterday. It’s a rainy, dreary day here so I’m planning on relaxing and reading as much as possible! ♥️

Let’s check out what’s new to my shelf this week. Only two books! One is a library borrow and the other is a NetGalley ARC.

  1. Missing Dead Girls by Sara Walters. This is only the second ARC I’ve been approved for on NetGalley. I’m 25% through and it’s going pretty well so far. It’s described as a sapphic thriller about a girl who moves to a new town to escape her traumatic past. There she meets a fellow high schooler and the two hit it off right away- then one of them goes missing and the other is the accused.
  2. The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood. I’m around 15% into this one so I have a lot more to read. It’s pretty good so far, but slower than I was anticipating. I do think the slow burn has its own merit. The casualness in which the dystopian world is presented is unsettling and effective.

Have you read either of these yet or do you have any interest in reading them?

Have a great weekend! I’ll see you in your blogs. ❤

  1. I hope it’s just a 24 bug and you’re up and around quickly. I read Handmaids Tale years ago and remember enjoying but no details. Hope you enjoy your ARC. Just keep trying, you’ll start getting some. It took me a while too and I still request lots I’m not approved for. I think bigger, well established blogs get the prime bks, popular authors, etc. But I’ve read some amazing books by people I’ve never heard of. Good luck.
    Hope you find time to read a good book this week.
