Stacking the Shelves #34


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

This was a very important week at my house.  My daughter turned 16 on Sunday and I survived her slumber party - it wasn't too bad actually.  On Monday, my husband took her to take her driver's test and she passed!  This means she can drive herself to all of her evening activities.  I couldn't be happier!!  I am looking forward to getting back to doing some of the things that I love a little more often.

Digital Books

The Twenty-Three by Linwood Barclay (NetGalley)
The Dog, Ray by Linda Coggin (NetGalley)
Home by Harlan Coben (First to Read)
Our Chemical Hearts by Krystal Sutherland (First to Read)
Marrying Winterborne by Lisa Kleypas (Amazon Sale Purchase)
Devil in Winter by Lisa Kleypas (Amazon Sale Purchase)
Beauty and the Blacksmith by Tessa Dare (Amazon Freebie)
The Prophet by Amanda Stevens (Amazon Sale Purchase)

Lots of new books this week!  I requested The Twenty-Three some time ago so I was a bit surprised to see that I had finally been approved.  I am giddy to get an early copy of Harlan Coben's Home.  I have only read the first chapter so far but it was awesome.  I had to pick up the two Lisa Kleypas books when I saw them for less than $2 because...Lisa Kleypas!  I have been wanting to read Tessa Dare so I was thrilled to grab a novella up as a freebie.  I couldn't resist The Prophet when it was on sale this week.  I have the first 2 books in the series and I am looking forward to a binge read in the future. 

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. Yay for your daughter passing her driving test!! I wanted Home and Our Chemical Hearts from First to Read but they were out of guaranteed copies and I didn't get the drawing. Can't wait to see what you think of both of them. Enjoy all your new books and have a great week!!

    1. I wake up way too early and usually check First to Read before I do anything else. I have been lucky to get some awesome books from that program. I have only been lucky enough to win a drawing one time. Thanks, Grace!

  2. YAY for surviving your daughter's slumber party--and for her passing her drivers' test! That's awesome, and means more reading time for you (which is always a good thing)!

    Our Chemical Hearts has been on my TBR for aaaaages...but I totally forgot it even existed! Thank you for reminding me that it's out there!

    Here's hoping you enjoy all your recent acquisitions--and your newfound quiet time in the evenings! Here's my Stacking the Shelves, if you're interested in checking it out--but no worries if you're not! Happy book-ing to you in the near future.

  5. Nice to have a new driver in the family to free you up a bit. :)

    Oh yes, very nice haul. That is always a surprise when a book I requested weeks before from NG suddenly gets approved and I am not sure where I can fit it in at that late date. Oh well...

  9. All of your books look really good this week, and what's sad is I haven't heard of any of them before. I'll be adding some stuff to my TBR very soon. :)

    Hope you enjoy your new lovelies!
