Stacking the Shelves #104


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

My Life
It was a pretty calm week at my house.  Work was pretty busy which made the work days move pretty fast.  It was my turn to take my daughter to her jazz group on Thursday which meant my night was as busy as my day.  I did manage to get a couple of good books in this week including my first 5 star read of 2018.

Books Purchased
Dusk or Dark or Dawn or Day by Seanan McGuire (Kindle Purchase)

I saw this one on sale for $1.99 so I decided to grab a copy with my gift card balance.  I am looking forward to reading it.


Hexed by Kevin Hearne (eStories Purchase)
Hammered by Kevin Hearne (eStories Purchase)
Tricked by Kevin Hearne (eStories Purchase)

A few months ago, I signed up for a promotion at eStories that gave me 3 months for $0.99 each.  I received my third credit this week so I decided to pick out which books I wanted.  I already have a copy of the first audiobook in the Iron Druid Chronicles so I decided to add the next 3 books to my collection.

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 always admired all the young people, like your daughter, who are so dedicated to their craft. My daughter danced competitively, and I remember thinking, that I never worked that hard at anything when I was her age. Our kids are very impressive!

  7. I've seen this series around but haven't read any of it. Sounds like a good audio pick. The Jazz group sounds fun despite the extra driving for you. Sounds like you'r week has been super busy. I hope you're getting some relaxation in this weekend! Have a great week!

    1. It wasn't really a stock up sale. I just got a great 3 month deal and decided to use all 3 credits at the same time.

  12. Yay for pretty new reads. I hadn't heard of estories before.

    1. I like eStories. It is very similar to Audible but the audiobooks do not have DRM. My headphone work better with the Audible app which is the only reason I prefer Audible.

  13. Sounds like a nice quiet week and you grabbed some good book. I LOVED that Seanan McGuire book. It's odd but in such a beautiful way. Man, I sooooo need to start Iron Druid. Maybe in February I can make time.

    1. I am very lucky to be able to listen to books at work. I wouldn't get nearly as many done if it wasn't for that.

  15. Calm weeks are good weeks in my opinion. Love 99cent books. Lately though I've been going crazy with Audible daily deals. LOL. Hope you have a great week and enjoy your new reads! ~Aleen

  21. I am seeing that Kevin Hearne series everywhere. If only I didn't have such a backlog . . . Glad you had a quiet week. Those are always good!

    1. You don't even want to know how bad my backlog is right now. I just keep adding books to it. If they are books that I paid for, I feel like I can get to them whenever. I only stress over review books.

  22. Yay for your first 5 star read! Sometimes life is just busy busy busy and there is nothing we can do about it! Hope you're de-stressing from time to time.

  23. I really love the Iron Druid series, especially on audio. You won't regret that purchase. I'm so sad to see that series ending.
