Stacking the Shelves #5


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

I added quite a few books once again this week.  I am trying to use restraint when it comes to requesting books for review right now but I am not having a lot of luck.  I love to read but I just can't seem to stop looking for new books to add.   I was able to grab a whole lot of reading material for under $1 this week.

NetGalley


With Malice by Eileen Cook
Fowl Language: Welcome to Parenting by Brian Gordon
The Girls in the Garden by Lisa Jewell

I couldn't resist Fowl Language since I love these cartoons that I have seen all over the internet.  I requested The Girls in the Garden quite a while ago and just had my request approved.  It looks like a good read.  With Malice sounds pretty amazing - I couldn't help it.  I had to click on that one.

Edelweiss


The Fireman by Joe Hill

I am still a little shocked that I was actually approved for The Fireman.  I am really looking forward to this one.

Kindle Freebies


Harmony Black by Craig Schaefer (Kindle First pick)
Black Falcon's Lady by Kimberly Cates
Gather the Stars by Kimberly Cates

I don't even try to use any self control when it comes to freebies.  I grab any and all that sound like something I might possibly want to read some day. 

Paid Books

The Kingdom by Amanda Stevens

I have had the first book in this series sitting on my kindle for a long time.  When I saw this book on sale for $0.99, I had to grab it.

What books do you add to your shelves this week? 
Let me know in the comments and be sure to leave a link to your own STS post!

    1. I requested that book so long ago that I had kind of forgot about it. When I got the approval email this week, it was a nice surprise.

    1. I do like to mix up my reading. I get bored if I read too many books in any one genre. I do hope these books turn out to be great!

    2. I agree - mixing things up it great :)

  11. That's quite the haul. I have a problem with requesting too many books too, because I'd like to read some oldies too. But I've done a really good job of not requesting them lately, and I only have two left. :) Now that I'm talking about it I have an itch to see what's out there.

    1. I never seem to get the chance to read all of the books that I have bought over the years. I will do really good at controlling myself and almost catch up and then I go back to requesting everything.

  12. With Malice sounds so good! Happy reading!

  15. Fowl Language is seriously tempting me! It always makes me laugh. Yay for Lisa Jewell and Joe Hill! Both are authors I really want to read - especially Lisa Jewel. Hope you enjoy them!

    1. A lot of the cartoons in Fowl Language are the same ones that I have seen floating around the internet but it still made me smile. I am really looking forward to the Joe Hill and Lisa Jewel books.

  16. Fowl Language seems like it will make you LOL. I've seen With Malice and Girl in the Garden around, but haven't gotten on board yet. Hope you have a wonderful week and happy reading!

    1. I downloaded and read Fowl Language right away. I did think it was funny. I don't stress too much about getting the freebies read. I know that I will have more reading time in my life at some time to catch up on all of these books.

  19. I have the same problem, Carole, I can never stop getting new books even though I already have so many to read! ;-) I hope you enjoy every one of these. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    1. I probably won't be able to get to The Fireman until closer to publication. I read Heart Shaped Box and enjoyed it but haven't picked up any others.

  24. I have the Amanda Stevens book through Netgalley. I have got to get around to reading that one soon!

    I also have the J.L. Bryan book; I did a tour for that one a while back.

    Some of your other books look really interesting, especially the Joe Hill book.

    I hope you enjoy them all!

    1. I am not sure when I will get to the Amanda Stevens book but I felt like I should pick it up while it was on sale. I couldn't pass up the J.L. Bryan for free.

  25. Girls in the Garden has an appealing cover. Enjoy your latest haul ;-)
