Stacking the Shelves (3)

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly book meme created and hosted by Tynga at Tynga's Reviews. It is all about sharing the books you've added to your shelves throughout the week. The books you're adding to your shelves can be either physical or digital.

It's been a long time since I've added any books to my shelves because I am trying really hard to read a few of the books on my TBR list before I buy any more. Let me tell you, it is the most difficult thing I've done, but I have not bought a book since August. It's really helping me focus on reading the books that I own. 

That being said, the books that I've gotten this week were either gifts or given to me for review. It's not every day that I can say I can dedicate an entire post to free books.

Books I've Added to My Shelves:

  • To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
  • Etiquette & Espionage by Gail Carriger
  • Curtsies & Conspiracies by Gail Carriger
  • Waistcoats & Weaponry by Gail Carriger 
  • Fiddler on the Roof: Based on Sholem Aleichem's Stories by Joseph Stein
 To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my favorite books ever, and I am so happy to finally have a copy of it. It's a pretty cool edition too. First of all, it's a hardcover, and it's from England! I'm still planning on finding an American edition of the classic book, but until then, this one will do.

I am planning on binge reading the Finishing School series soon, so look for a series review of that in the future.

Fiddler on the Roof is a recent request of mine from Blogging for Books. I'm still waiting for it to arrive in the mail because it is such a beautiful bind up of the beloved musical. I've always wanted to see the it performed live, and I think it would be cool to see it all written down. Musicals are awesome!


  1. I really hope you like the Finishing School series! I have the first one, but haven't read it yet. It looks interesting, though.

    Have a great week!

    1. It'll be my first time reading anything like it. I haven't begun to explore steam punk, but they seem like they are really good.

  2. Ooo, I've heard Gail's books are awesome. I'll have to read them. :)

    1. Yay! I've seen some mixed reviews, but I've heard that they are a great way to introduce people to steampunk.

  3. Is it bad that I haven't read To Kill A Mockingbird yet? I've heard so much about Harper Lee, but I'm more for the high fantasy and Science Fiction genre!

    My haul this week:

    1. It's not bad, but it is surprising. It's a go-to book for schools.

  4. To Kill A Mockingbird is amazing and I think everybody in America should read it. It really helps paint a picture of what life was like back then.

    My only bone to pick with the book is that mockingbirds are actually mean creatures and attack cats.

    I'm new to the whole blogging world and I'm in the middle of rereads so I may join in on the "Stacking the Shelves" once I'm more used to it. :-)

    1. I agree. Most kids read it in ninth grade where I live, so I was lucky enough to read it while I was still pretty young. I loved it. I need to re-read it soon.

      I went to Virginia a few years ago, and there were mockingbirds everywhere, but they kept to themselves. I wanted to get a picture, but they were just too fast. I've never heard of them attacking cats, but they aren't a common bird here.

  5. To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my favorite books too! *HIGH FIVE* Happy reading :)
