Stacking the Shelves #29


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

I simply can't seem to get anything done lately!  This week was back to reality and back to work.  It probably comes as no surprise that I really like vacation weeks much better :)  By the time I would get home from work, feed the family, and walk the dogs, it would be time to go to bed.  I keep thinking things should calm down soon but it is just not happening.

Digital Books

Sting by Sandra Brown (NetGalley)

I adore Sandra Brown's writing so I was thrilled to be approved for this book.

Print Books

Outlaw Hearts by Rosanne Bittner (Paperback Swap)
The Wolf Road by Beth Lewis (Wunderkind PR)
Jonathan Unleashed by Meg Rosoff (Won @ Bea's Book Nook)
Vamped by David Sosnowski (book fair purchase)
These Things Hidden by Heather Gudenkauf (book fair purchase)
Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout (book fair purchase)
Blue Diablo by Ann Aguirre (book fair purchase)
Hell Fire by Ann Aguirre (book fair purchase)
Shady Lady by Ann Aguirre (book fair purchase)
Devil's Punch by Ann Aguirre (book fair purchase)

My daughter talked me into taking her to a book fair Friday night which I have to admit wasn't really that hard to do.  I only picked up 7 books compared to her 12 so I did practice some restraint - at least in my eyes.  We only spent $8.25 on the 19 books we grabbed so I think we did pretty well.

Audiobooks

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern (audible purchase)
The Young World by Chris Weitz (Audiobook Sync)

I have been trying to stop myself from buying so many books but I couldn't resist The Night Circus when it was the audible daily deal this week.  I also grabbed The Young World from Audiobook Sync while it was one of the week's freebies.  I am just loving this summer's picks!

What books do you add to your shelves this week?

  1. You had such a great week! I LOVE The Night Circus, it's one of my favorites. And I read The Weight of Silence, by Heather Gudenkauf, last year and really enjoyed it--I should really pick up more of her work!

    Here's hoping you enjoy your recent acquisitions! Also, here's my Stacking the Shelves this week, if you're interested in checking it out--no worries if you're not, though! Happy book-ing to you!

  8. Great haul! I got The Wolf Road this week as well, so I can't wait to read it. I go back to work tomorrow, so I know I'll get more behind on blogging. I'm trying to start working from home, so I'm crossing my fingers to get approved. We have a staff meeting next month, and they'll announce it then. Wish me luck!
