Stacking The Shelves/Library Loot

Welcome to my Stacking The Shelves/Library Loot post, hosted by Reading Reality (Stacking the Shelves) and The Captive Reader and Real Life Reading (Library Loot).

This week I have had a couple of Blog Tour books turn up as well as getting a few books from the library! I have slowed down on Blog Tours so that I can try and catch up on my own books. We shall see how long that lasts!

Blog Tour Books

Double or Nothing by Kim Sherwood (click for link to Goodreads)

“The start of a brand new trilogy following MI6’s agents with a licence to kill, that blows the world of James Bond wide open!
James Bond is missing…
007 has been captured, perhaps even killed, by a sinister private military company. His whereabouts are unknown.

Meet the new generation of spies…
Johanna Harwood, 003. Joseph Dryden, 004. Sid Bashir, 009. Together, they represent the very best and brightest of MI6. Skilled, determined and with a licence to kill, they will do anything to protect their country.

The fate of the world rests in their hands…
Tech billionaire Sir Bertram Paradise claims he can reverse the climate crisis and save the planet. But can he really? The new spies must uncover the truth, because the future of humanity hangs in the balance.

Time is running out.”

I am on the Blog Tour for this book on 2 September so keep your eyes peeled for my review on here, Amazon, Goodreads, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter!

The Weekend Before The Wedding by Tracy Bloom (click for link to Goodreads)

Book Description From Goodreads:

“Mamma Mia meets Bridesmaids in a laugh-out-loud, life affirming comedy

One weekend, one bride-to-be, what could possibly go wrong…

All Shelley wanted on her hen weekend was to enjoy three days of sun, sea and sangria. But instead of being surrounded by the A-team of her closest friends, she somehow ends up with a Golden Girls-meets-the-Spice Girls B-list that includes her mother, a rebellious teenager, and a best mate ‘on the verge’.

The squabbling starts at the airport, and on arrival in Spain, Shelley barely has time to unpack her suitcase before getting an unwanted text ̶ one that throws her wedding into doubt.

Shelley has got a BIG decision to make, but her unruly medley of nearest and dearest seem determined to confuse matters with their own problems.

Have they got what it takes to get her through the most important weekend of her life?”

I am on the Blog Tour for this book on 15 August so keep your eyes peeled for my review on here, Amazon, Goodreads, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter!

My Library Books

From the Libby App

The Little Paris Patisserie by Julie Caplin (click for link to Goodreads)

Book Description From Goodreads:

“In a cosy corner of Paris, a delicious little patisserie is just waiting to be discovered. And romance might just be on the menu…

As the youngest of four, Nina Hadley has always had her big brothers telling her what to do. So, when she’s given the chance to move to Paris and help run a patisserie course, she can’t say au revoir quick enough!

There’s just one problem: high-flying chef Sebastian Finlay is the owner of the patisserie. He’s also her brother Nick’s best friend – and the man she has secretly been in love with since forever.

Amongst the mouth-wateringly delicious eclairs and delicate macaroons, Nina’s culinary creations aren’t the only tempting thing she’s working with…”

I chose this book to read for Paris In July. I have wanted to read more of Julie Caplin since enjoying The Little Cafe in Copenhagen so this was an excellent excuse!

Physical Book

Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe by Melissa De La Cruz

Book Description From Goodreads:

Darcy Fitzwilliam simply doesn’t have time to fall in love. But this Christmas, a kiss under the mistletoe will change everything…

As partner at a major New York hedge fund, Darcy’s only serious relationship is with her work cellphone. The truth is, she’s too busy being successful and making money to have time for Christmas… let alone to allow romance into her life.

But this year Darcy is coming home to Pemberley, Ohio, for the holidays. There, she runs into her old neighbour and high-school foe Luke Bennet – the oldest of five wayward brothers. When Darcy’s enmity with Luke is re-opened, along with a hefty dollop of sexual chemistry… well, sparks are sure to fly. Can Darcy fall in love – or will her pride, and Luke’s prejudice against big-city girls, stand in their way?”

I chose this to read for Christmas in July. I love an Austen retelling so was quite excited to find this!

My Son’s Library Book

Chicken Little: The Real and Totally True Tale by Sam Wedelich (click for link to Goodreads)

Book Description From Goodreads:

Who are you calling little?
“Whimsy reigns in Wedelich’s debut picture book… A spry readaloud that will entertain adults and listeners in equal measure.” — Publishers Weekly

Chicken Little is NOT afraid of anything. Well, okay, maybe a mysterious BONK to the head can produce panic. But only momentarily. It’s not as though she meant to send the barnyard into a tailspin, thinking that the sky was falling. How ridiculous! But can she calm her feathered friends with facts and reason?

A timeless favorite becomes a clever cautionary tale in this FUNNY, fresh, and timely picture book debut by cartoonist, Sam Wedelich!”

      I only heard of Christmas in July last year during lockdown so this year I have invited the family round to ‘celebrate’ it! I did have to ask the librarian where the book was at it said that it was available and she had to go off somewhere to get it…

    Nice haul, Emily. I like the look of Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe. I just finished a YA P&P retelling and I really enjoyed it. Have a nice weekend, Emily.
