This is my first time participating in Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Marlene at Reading Reality!
“Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks! And audiobooks. Don’t forget audiobooks! In other words, if you can read it or if it can be read to you – no matter how you got it – it belongs in Stacking the Shelves. The Stacking the Shelves meme was originally hosted at Team Tynga’s Reviews. For the last few years it’s been co-hosted at Team Tynga’s and here at Reading Reality.” (Source)
We have purchased and are adding two new books to our shelves! Let’s takes a lot at our bookish finds.
We recently pre-ordered our most anticipated book of the year “The Daughter of Doctor Moreau” by one of our favourite authors, Silvia Moreno-Garcia! This was purchased via Indigo, Chapters in hardcover form and we are SO excited welcome this beauty onto our shelves! Just look at it!
We gushed over SMG’s new novel in our Anticipated 2022 Reads blog post and we are happy to gush over it again here! And from reading everyone’s lovely comments, it appears though MANY of us cannot wait to read it!
Let’s take a look at our second purchase from Indigo.
We are so lucky to have found these wonderful Sailor Moon editions! Thus far, I have acquired Eternal Editions 1-5, and now I am happy to continue adding more to the collection. If you’ve previously read this manga, these books are such a treat as they are so large (10.02 x 7.13 x 0.91 inches!) allowing you to really immerse yourself into the story. They also include additional notes at the back of each copy to learn more about the world of Sailor Moon both as you are reading or afterward for review.
Finally, we have shelved and are reading two books from the library!
This book is about Miikwan (Anishinaabe) and Dez (Inninew) who have to face and maneuver various challenges they encounter while growing up Indigenous in the city. I’m already 77% of the way through – it is beautifully illustrated and an emotional read as it deals with grief, loss, and other sensitive topics. Fortunate to have found this in our Libby app and to be reading it this month as part of our July TBR!
Finally, another book that I’ve put on my July TBR based off of our TBR Game, Fighting Evil by Booklight is Always Never by Jodi LaFebre. We were able to access this book via Hoopla. It tells a 40 year love story in reverse and I’m so curious to see how it will be done! I’ve seen wonderful reviews and I can’t wait to dig in!

I’m looking forward to The Daughter of Doctor Moreau! I loved Mexican Gothic but could not get into Velvet is the Night. Really hoping I love this one as much as Gothic!
