Stacking the Shelves (1)

Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews.
This is only a small haul because I am supposed to be on a book buying ban, but it's not really going too well. I bought 3 books, was gifted one and got the odd ones for review!
Going Out by Scarlett Thomas - Reading this one at the moment, and loving it so far! It's a wacky retelling of the Wizard of Oz and it's just as hilarious as the other books I have read by her.
Bright Young Things by Scarlett Thomas - This one sounds like a modern version of Lord of the Flies. I'm really looking forward to it!

PopCo by Scarlett Thomas - Yeah, I went on a bit of a Scarlett Thomas spree. This one sounds really weirdly amazing, like all of her other stuff, and JUST LOOK AT THAT COVER.
The Host by Stephenie Meyer - My mum bought me this book after I had been going on about wanting to read it for ages (thanks, Mum!) I'm really looking forward to it, but it is a HUUGE book!
Arabelle's Shadows by Fleur Gaskin - Don't know too much about this one, but it looks pretty good and the cover is amazing!
Those are all the books I got, but I'm sure there'll be some more soon. Let me know what you thought of any of them below!

  1. I've just finished reading Bright Young Things by Scarlett Thomas. It was very different from The End of Mr Y but it was still a great read. It has loads of references to television, music and general life in 1999 and it was great fun reminiscing as I read. I read this book purely on the strength of Mr Y and I wasn't disappointed even though both books are vastly different. I hope you enjoy it, I'm thinking of moving onto Popco next so will be interested to see what you think.
