Stacking the Shelves #2


I am really excited to participate in Stacking the Shelves, a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews

No matter how you look at it - I added a lot of books this week.  When you consider that my resolution for 2016 it to catch up on my ARCs, it looks like I really added a lot of books.  To be fair, a lot of the ARCs that I added this week were requested that I made before I decided on my resolution.   Although, I did grab a couple and requested a few additional titles because I have absolutely no willpower to speak of.

  1. I got Hawke this week, too, Carole, and I can't wait to read it! I'm jealous you got a copy of the newest Mercy Thompson... I hope you'll love it!
    Have a fantastic weekend and happy reading.

    1. I am reading the Patricia Briggs book right now. I am about halfway done and I am loving it. I hope to finish it today. I love the Cold Hockey Fury series and I am auto-approved by Loveswept so I just had to grab Hawke as soon as I saw it.

      Have a great weekend, Lexxie!

    2. I'm not 100% auto-approved for Loveswept (I can't just download their titles) but they always approve me. I'm so glad you love the Cold Fury Hockey players, too :) They are so hawt!

    3. I know that I am really lucky to be auto-approved by Loveswept. They have some wonderful books. I have a lot of publishers that generally approve me but they haven't auto-approved me yet. I'm still hoping :)

    1. I really need to stop looking at NetGalley and Edelweiss but it is so hard to do! I am really pretty quick to grab freebies. If it looks even remotely interesting, I will grab it but I am not in any rush to read any of them. I mean they are taking up space or anything so why not :)

    1. I love Sandra Brown. I grab her books to add to my kindle account as I see them on sale. I love Outlander so I had to grab Into the Dim. I hope it lives up to the hype.

    1. I am really excited about all of my ARCs this week. Into the Dim sounds really good. I hope that it lives up to all of the hype. I am a little nervous about it because of all the comparisons to Outlander. I just love that book and it will take a lot to come anywhere close to it.

    1. I do love Sandra Brown. I try to add her books to my kindle account as they go on sale. I haven't read Lisa Gardner before but I couldn't resist this audible freebie.

  7. This week got a little out of control for me as well and I've got a few books on their way and a few requests pending so next week won't be any better! You got some great books! I haven't read Sandra Brown or Lisa Gardner for some reason but I do want to try them. Enjoy your new reads!

    1. I have a few requests pending but I have a feeling that they are books that I won't get. It always makes me sad when publishers say no even though I have a mountain of books to read! I am thrilled with this week's haul! You really should try Sandra Brown. I think she is an excellent writer. I met her at a book signing and she is also one of the nicest ladies you will meet.

  8. Great haul, Carole! I can't wait to see what you think of Hawke :) Happy reading!

  11. What a great haul you have!!! I really like Sawyer Bennett....her books always surprise me in how much I end up liking them. I like Theresa Romain and that cover is so gorgeous, I love that tone of pink. Hope you enjoy Patricia Briggs....i do need to try her out soon.

    1. I have really enjoyed all of the Sawyer Bennett books that I have read. I agree completely about that cover. I hope to get to that one soon since it is just a novella and should be a quick read. I finished the Patricia Briggs book yesterday and loved it. I will have my review posted closer to the publication date.

  12. I love that dog on Lottery Boy. I hate to say I will probably pick it up based on the dog, but hey, it is what it is. The story sounds good as well. I adore Patricia Briggs and the covers just get better and better. Enjoy all your books!

    1. I do things like that Barb! I can't tell you how many books have been added to my shelves just because of the cover. I do think that the Briggs covers are just wonderful and this newest one may be my favorite. I can't wait to read Lottery Boy. I was excited to actually win something!

    1. I do really good at using some judgement on adding books and than I will have a day or two that I act like a mad woman adding all kinds of crazy stuff that I will need a month to finish. So far so good this week. :)

  14. Your willpower may have been weak but you got some great books!
