I am really excited to participate in Stacking the Shelves, a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews.
I went a bit crazy this week. I would say that I lost control but I don't really think I even attempted any control this week. I actually feel okay about the audiobooks and the digital books that I added this week. I admit that I probably bought too many print books this week but I don't even care. Books don't have an expiration date and they don't go back so we will get to them when we can. I was off a couple of days this week during my teenage daughter's spring break and we had a lot of fun shopping for books together. Some of the books in the last couple of photos are hers, some are mine, and some are for both of us. We had fun and didn't spend a lot of money so that is a win in my opinion.
Menagerie by Rachel Vincent (Purchased)
Pack by Jeaniene Frost (For Review)
The Church of Dead Girls by Stephen Dobyns (For Review)
The Killing Jar by Jennifer Bosworth (For Review)
I was really excited to see Menagerie on sale this week and can't wait to listen to it. I have already listened to Pack and enjoyed it quite a bit. I plan to listen to the other two books sometime in April.
Good Girl by Lauren Layne (NetGalley - for Review)
Claimed by Rebecca Zanetti (Purchased)
The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Adieh (Purchased)
Imperfect Chemistry by Mary Frame (Freebie)
Reckless by Maggie Shayne (Freebie)
The Heretic by Joseph Nassise (Freebie)
Dog with a Bone by Hailey Edwards (Freebie)
Charred Heart by Lizzy Ford (Freebie)
The Ruby Brooch by Katherine Lowry Logan (Freebie)
I only picked up one new ARC to read. I couldn't pass up Lauren Layne's new book. I have had the first book in the Rebecca Zanetti series for a while so I grabbed the second one when it was offered as the deal of the day. When I saw The Wrath and the Dawn for sale, I went ahead and picked it up as well since I have seen some great reviews for that one.
Magic in the Blood by Devon Monk (Paperback Swap)
Magic in the Shadows by Devon Monk (Paperback Swap)
I now have the first 4 books in this series in my possession so hopefully I will be able to start reading it soon.
I picked up this big pile of books at my local dollar store. I am not going to list them all but I am pretty happy with my purchase. 15 brand new books for $15 plus tax - you almost can't beat that!
I felt like I hit the jackpot when I got these books. I went to the new Goodwill Outlet in my area to take a look around. Once I starting seeing ARCs for recent books in the bins, I rolled my sleeves up and took a better look. The books are priced by the inch at this store. So you just pile your books up like in the photo at the check out and they measure your pile with a ruler. The books cost 15¢ per inch so all of these books cost less than $6!!
What books do you add to your shelves this week?
