Stacking the Shelves Saturday

Stacking the shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and Reading Reality all about sharing the books we are adding to our shelves, whether physical or virtual.

Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow by Yuval Noah Harari 

There was a kindle deal that was too good to resist on this non fiction book, which speculates on the future of mankind. I also have Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari- which traces the origins of humans- on my kindle app and can’t wait to delve into both books in the future.

The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee

I’m so excited to read this historical fiction novel about two friends who have some crazy adventures as they complete the Grand Tour in eighteenth-century Europe. This buzzed about and diverse debut features: LGBTQA characters, a biracial character, pirates, a little bit of magic, and a kick-ass female character. It sounds like so. much. fun.

Company in the Evening by Ursula Orange 

I’m having a hard time resisting ebooks from the Furrowed Middlebrow/ Dean Street Press collaboration. This week I bought The Company in Evening, a novel about a young divorcée raising her daughter on her own in wartime London. I’m a sucker for a good WWII book set on the English home front, and this one sounds like a unique take on that theme.

  1. I’m loving your book haul! I saw Homo Deus as well as Sapien at the bookstore the other day and I’d love to buy them sometime. Sounds super fascinating! And I REALLY wanna get my hands on The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue. I heard so much great things about it and I love historical fiction.

  4. I got the Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue this week too, and I’m super excited for it. I don’t read much historical fiction, but I couldn’t resist the storyline and the surplus of diversity. Happy reading! 🙂
