Stacking the Shelves | March 2021


Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews and Reading Reality that highlights all the books you've recently added to your shelves. Here's all the books I hauled in March!

The Witch's Heart by Genevieve Gornichec


Angrboda's story begins where most witches' tales end: with a burning. A punishment from Odin for refusing to provide him with knowledge of the future, the fire leaves Angrboda injured and powerless, and she flees into the farthest reaches of a remote forest. There she is found by a man who reveals himself to be Loki, and her initial distrust of him transforms into a deep and abiding love.

Their union produces three unusual children, each with a secret destiny, who Angrboda is keen to raise at the edge of the world, safely hidden from Odin's all-seeing eye. But as Angrboda slowly recovers her prophetic powers, she learns that her blissful life—and possibly all of existence—is in danger.

With help from the fierce huntress Skadi, with whom she shares a growing bond, Angrboda must choose whether she’ll accept the fate that she's foreseen for her beloved family…or rise to remake their future. From the most ancient of tales this novel forges a story of love, loss, and hope for the modern age.

Published on 4th May 2021. So excited that I got approved for this on Netgalley. I mean, a witch who falls in love with Loki? Sounds amazing! 

Foretold by Violet Lumani

Cassandra sees death and devastation all around her. In vivid detail.

It’s the price of living with her OCD and extreme anxiety. In every situation, Cass imagines the worst possible fate for everyone in her life. Her dad in a pool of blood after a break-in. Her beloved older neighbor, homeless. A splinter in her finger turned to gangrene.

But this time, it’s not her imagination. The boy next door, Colin, is destined to die. Cass has foretold a real death before; she knows this is a true vision.

Desperate to save Colin's life, Cass immerses herself in a secret organization of soothsayers that promises to teach her how to change the future she foresees. But as she descends into their hidden world of divinatory magic and predictive technology, she discovers there's always a price to pay for unraveling fate's strands. And cheating death will cost her everything.

Published on 20th July 2021. This was available to read on Netgalley and after reading the synopsis, a girl with OCD who can predict death and there's magic involved, I couldn't help but download it. 


For World Book Day on the 4th of March, Apple books released a ton of middle grade's and children's books for free on their app so I took full advantage and got ten of them. Some of these I've wanted to read for so long so I really hit the jackpot!

I also can't resist when Amazon or Apple books have those little 99p sales cause I'm a sucker for a bargain 🤷


I also downloaded the Faraway Collection that's available for free on Prime Reading cause why not? They're only short and I love myself a fairytale.

I also got S.T.A.G.S as a free audiobook on World Book Day and I decided to get the free trial of Audible which gets you two credits to use and I'm pretty happy with my choices!   

I've been good with not buying any physical books for the last few months particularly with the charity shops closed so the only book I've acquired recently is this one that my dad lent me. The Damage Done: Twelve Years of Hell in a Bangkok Prison by Warren Fellows is a non-fiction book about the author's experience in a prison in Thailand. Not something I usually pick up but my dad does have good recommendations so I'll try and get to it soon. 
That's everything! It's actually more then I thought I'd hauled but I'm happy with some of the steals I managed to get. What have you hauled over the last month or even week? Leave a comment or leave a link to your own hauls down below. Happy Reading!
