Stacking the Shelves #63

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

I headed back to work this week after having been on vacation.  I have one of those jobs where the work stacks up and waits for me when I am gone which means this week wasn't a lot of fun at the office.  I hurt my back on Sunday morning and have had a hard time getting around this week.  No fun but it is feeling better now.  I have been reading Etched in Bone most of the week and am loving it. 

Digital Books

Once Upon a Summer Night by Nancy Scanlon (NetGalley) My Review
Kiss Marry Kill by Sidney Halston (NetGalley)
72 Hours by Bella Jewel (NetGalley)
It Happened on Love Street by Lia Riley (NetGalley)
Lethal Lies by Rebecca Zanetti (NetGalley)
Live Out Loud by Marie Meyer (NetGalley)
Walk of Shame by Lauren Layne (NetGalley)
Cream of the Crop by Alice Clayton (Kindle Purchase)
The 5 Greatest Warriors by Matthew Reilly (Kindle Purchase)
A Criminal Defense by William L. Myers, Jr. (Kindle First Pick)

So I went a little crazy clicking widgets this week.  What can I say?  All of the NetGalley books that I added this week are books that I am really excited about reading and hope to get to them within the next couple of weeks.  I have actually already read and reviewed one of them so I think I am off to an okay start.

Print Books

Bang by Barry Lyga (The Novl)

This book sounds absolutely amazing!  I cannot wait to read this and was really excited to get this package from the wonderful people at The Novl.

Stealing Mr. Right by Tamara Morgan (Won @ Books & Beauty Are My Bag)

I was really excited to learn that I won a copy of this book from Angie Elle @ Books & Beauty Are My Bag.   I like the idea behind this book - a jewel thief married to an FBI agent.  It sounds like a lot of fun doesn't it?

What books do you add to your shelves this week?

  1. There are few things worse than a sore back as it just grinds you down all through your day. I'm glad you're feeling a bit better now. I think I've got four Matthew Reilly books waiting to be looked at. I'm hoping I might squeeze one in at the end of this month if time allows. I did my usual for purchases this week-UF, zombies, apocalypses...and a bassett hound!

  2. Ugh work after a vacation is always the worst. Glad you are feeling better! Lots of books!!! I have been so bad with review books. I need to stop!! Hope you have a great week!

  3. Yeah the week back after vacation is always the worst! Glad you're feeling better though! I am so behind in Anne's series! Really need to get caught up!

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

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  4. Sorry to hear about your back and the pile-up at work waiting for you.

    Oh hey, great haul, though. I got the Rebecca Zanetti, too.

    Hopefully this week will be better now that your work pile is down a bit.

  5. Ooh, Alice Clayton. Her books are always so fun. I added a ton of DRCs this week. Nothing for weeks from Edelweiss, I just thought they were going to let my request "time out", and then BOOM! 29 approvals. So, lots of awesome awaits me.
