Stacking Shelves: 27th January, 2018

STSsmallOnce again, I’m joining in with Tynga at Tynga’s Reviews and Marlene of Reading Reality for Stacking Shelves, where you share the real and virtual books you have added to your shelves in the last week.

I haven’t done this meme for a while but it feels nice to be back – for this week at least – and even if I only have a few books to share.  First up is a giveaway I was lucky enough to win, The Perfect Girlfriend by Karen Hamilton.

Juliette loves Nate. She will follow him anywhere. She’s even become a flight attendant for his airline, so she can keep a closer eye on him.

They are meant to be.

The fact that Nate broke up with her six months ago means nothing. Because Juliette has a plan to win him back. She is the perfect girlfriend. And she’ll make sure no one stops her from getting exactly what she wants.

True love hurts, but Juliette knows it’s worth all the pain…

Next up is Everything is Lies by Helen Callaghan, which is due out next month.

No-one is who you think they are

Sophia’s parents lead quiet, unremarkable lives. At least that is what she’s always believed.

Everyone has secrets

Until the day she arrives at her childhood home to find a house ringing with silence. Her mother is hanging from a tree. Her father is lying in a pool of his own blood, near to death.

Especially those closest to you

The police are convinced it is an attempted murder-suicide. But Sophia is sure that the woman who brought her up isn’t a killer. As her father is too ill to talk it is up to Sophia to clear her mother’s name. And to do this she needs to delve deep into her family’s past – a past full of dark secrets she never suspected were there . . .

What if your parents had been lying to you since the day you were born?

What do you think?  Do they appeal to you?  What have you added to the shelves this week?

  1. Everything is Lies sounds deliciously dark…

    1. Doesn’t it? I can’t wait!

  2. Enjoy your books! Everything Is Lies sounds amazing…thanks for sharing.

    1. I hope to. They seem like they’ll be right up my street!

  3. Those both sound pretty good, I hope you enjoy them! 🙂

    1. Me too – fingers crossed x

  4. I’ve got a copy of The Perfect Girlfriend to read and it sounds so good, doesn’t it? I didn’t know Helen Callaghan had a new book coming out soon, I’ll have to look out for this one as it sounds interesting. I hope you enjoy both of your new books! 🙂
    My StS:

    1. It does sound good doesn’t it. I read Callaghan’s last book and really enjoyed it so I have high hopes for this one. Fingers crossed x

  5. I haven’t heard of either of these but I need them! They both sound good and creepy. I love stalkers (fictional only of course) and people aren’t who they seem thrillers.

    1. Yes, fictional stalkers are so much fun!

  6. Oh my goodness – EVERYTHING IS LIES looks a powerful read! I’ve just finished reading a fantasy YA book where the hapless protagonist found she’d grown up not knowing what was going on…

    1. Doesn’t it? I love these type of books. I hope it’s good!

Let me know what you're thinking...
