Stacking the Shelves #35


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

This has been a much quieter week for me.  Yay!  I spent most of last weekend reading and doing things around the house.  My evenings during the work week still don't seem to have enough time to get everything done.  I did squeeze in a book and an audiobook during the week so I did okay.  Fear the Walking Dead started back up and while I wasn't completely impressed with this week's episode, I was very happy to have zombies back on my TV screen.

Digital Books

Transcendent by Katelyn Detweiler (First to Read)
Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult (First to Read)
Still Life with Tornado by A.S. King (First to Read)
Deadly Silence by Rebecca Zanetti (NetGalley)

I can't seem to resist all of the wonderful books on offer at First to Read.  I hope that the books I added this week will be as good as some of the other recent offerings.  I love starting a series just as it is beginning so when I saw that Deadly Silence was the first in a new series, I requested it right away.

Print Books

The Last Mile by David Baldacci (From Publisher - Grand Central Publishing)

I loved the first book in the Amos Decker series and somehow missed the initial release of The Last Mile earlier this year.  When UPS dropped it off Tuesday night, I decided to take a look and couldn't put it down.  I should be posting my review soon.  

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. Glad it was a quieter week!! Ugh I didn't get any of the books I wanted from First to Read. All the guaranteed copies were gone when I checked and I missed the drawing. Oh well!! I hope you enjoy what you got!!

    1. I never win any of the drawings either. I only get the books because I get up way to early in the morning.

  2. Hi Carole! I'm glad that you still managed to squeeze in a book here and there, if there is a horror movie that I would watch, zombies are definitely one of them. Anything but ghosts! :p I am intrigued by Still Life with Tornado, there's something about the cover that seemed really interesting, I'm keeping a lookout on your thoughts about the book! Great haul, hope you have fun with them :D

    1. Ghosts can be scary. I just love all things zombie right now. Hopefully, I can get to Still Life with Tornado soon but it will probably be a few weeks.

  3. Nice new haul! Glad you snuck some reading time in! That's always important! LOL! Gotta keep ourselves sane now right? (That's my philosophy at least!) Happy reading!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by then if you can!

    Have a GREAT day!

  4. These all look really good! Especially the Deadly Silence. Jodi Piccoult and I tend not to get along so I look forward to seeing what you think there. First to Read is so tempting. I have an account but haven't logged in for ages. I'm thinking I should stay away as I wouldn't be able to resist the books either!

    1. It is so hard to resist. I think that there was one offering that I didn't want anything and another I forgot about. I have had a chance to read some great books in the program.

  6. Quieter weeks are so lovely between the crazy ones. Glad you got some reading in.

    1. I love quieter weeks. I really wish that they were all that way. I am looking forward to the Zanetti book.

  7. I've had a real First to Read problem lately. I think I have 6 of their books to read before the middle of October, but they've had some really good ones lately. I will have to remember to feature some of the ones I got on my haul next week. I got Small Great Things as well. Glad you got to read some. I get grouchy when I can't read.

  10. Totally agree with you about Fear the Walking Dead, it was an okay episode but I hate how it was all about Nick! I was so excited to see what everyone was up to and it was just about him :/ Hopefully next episode is much better!
    Great haul, I hope you enjoy your weekend.
    Check out my haul

    1. Lots of zombies and Nick but we didn't learn anything really.

  11. I’m glad you had a good week. I’ve been seeing that A.S. King book on a lot of blogs today. I should probably look it up.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  12. I so would love to read that new AS King book. And what is this First to Read program? I want in! Lol.

    Happy reading!

    1. You should definitely take a look at the First to Read site. It has some pros and cons but the books that are offered are great. It is worth a look. :)

  13. I'm curious about Still Life with Tornado by A.S. King. Happy reading.

  14. It is vital to have some kind of zombies in your life! I haven't read one in a while other than an attempt at zombies that I abandoned yesterday but hope the next book is better!
