Stacking the Shelves #65

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

This week started out with my daughter running a half marathon.  I didn't run but it still wore me out since we had to wake up at 4:00am to get her there on time.  The week slowed way down after that and we pretty much stayed home in the evenings after work.  I did BBQ for the first time since last year and am looking forward to more grilling this summer.

Digital Books

The Watcher by Bella Jewel (NetGalley)
On the Plus Side by Alison Bliss (NetGalley)
A Rule Against Murder by Louise Penny (Kindle Purchase)

I loved Bella Jewel's 72 Hours so I am really looking forward to her upcoming romantic suspense.  I thought the previous book in the A Perfect Fit series by Alison Bliss was a good read so I am eager to continue with the series.  I have been buying the books in the Chief Inspector Armand Gamache series as they go on sale.  I should have enough of them to start reading the series pretty soon. 

Print Books

One Perfect Lie by Lisa Scottoline (Purchase)

I bought a hardcover copy of One Perfect Lie to take to the book signing in my area.  I had a great time at the event and even had the chance to chat with Lisa a bit.  Look for my review on the blog on Monday along with a few pics from the book signing.

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 stuck with the usual favourite genres but added a couple of popular humour books which were fun to read for a change. They don't really fit into horror month though...Have a good weekend!

  2. That is awesome your daughter ran a half marathon!! We need to get out to BBQ soon. The weather is finally perfect for it. Very cool on going to the signing and getting to chat for bit. Enjoy your new books and have a great week!

  3. You're a good mom! I did receive a second copy (?) of a book I won through GoodReads, Spellbook of the Lost and Found. I clicked that I received it when I got the first copy, but I guess the publisher was feeling extra generous. Either way, I am excited about it. I was approved for some DRCs too (180 Seconds, Be True to Me, I Believe in a Thing Called Love) and I pre-order ACOWAR. I look forward to reading them all.

  4. OOh nice new reads! All new to me ones but I hope you enjoy them all!

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  5. congratulations to your daughter! that's really awesome. :) i'm looking forward to bbq season as well. i mean, we've been taking advantage of cooking outdoors when the weather permits, anyway but it would be nice if we could eat outside as well.

    enjoy your reads this week!

  6. I'd really love to participate in marathons or really just do some casual jogging/runs in the morning but I'm never really one to wake up early. 4AM is so early!! I've been eyeing One Perfect Lie. It's great to know you had a fun chatting with the author. Hope you have a great week ahead, Carole!

  7. Whew! That is an early start, but I have friends who run and that is about the usual for them..

    Nice haul. Look forward to your thoughts on the Bella Jewel.

    Happy Easter, Carole!

  8. Congrats to your daughter and good job for getting her there at 4AM! I'm not sure I could have done it. That's awesome that you got to meet Lisa Scottoline! I finally read the first Louisa Penny book and loved it and you've got me wanting to read Bella Jewel. Have a great week!

  9. I loved One Perfect Lie, and I'm envious that you got to meet the author and have your book signed. I love Lisa Scottoline. I got my e-book from NetGalley.

    I also enjoy Louise Penny's series, and now I'm reminded that I need to add more to my shelf.

    Have a great week! Here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  10. I’m training for a marathon right now. I’m doing it slowly because I’m a terrible runner. I hope you have a great week and enjoy your new books!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  11. Oh my gosh. That's WAY too early! Yay for the Alison Bliss. That landed here, too!

  12. Louise Penny has been really popular at my library! I have to check out her stuff. :)

  13. Congrats to your daughter! Though I must say, 4 AM is not fun. o_o I've not heard of your new additions, but I hope you enjoy them!

    Have a wonderful weekend, Carole. =)

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

  14. Congrats to your daughter. Bet you're so proud.

  15. Wow, Congrats to your daughter, Carole. Waking up at 4am is tough! You guys are Awesome. I would have given up. Hehe
    Anyway, I hope you enjoy all the books. The Watcher sounds very good. I'll check it out. Looking forward to your review.
    Have a great week. :)

  16. Aw! 4am strat for a marathon? So cool! I could never manage that. I used to read Lisa Scottline ages ago, but fell out of love with her books and can't for the life of me remember why. One Perfect Lie sounds pretty good! I hope you enjoy it when you get in to it!

  17. That's great about your daughter! Congrats to her. Enjoy your new books and Happy Easter!

  18. Oh wow! I am so impressed with your daughter running a half marathon. Probably because I am seriously so bad at running :D But good on her for doing it all and finishing! And yay for it being warm enough for BBQs.

  19. I love that it's getting nice enough out to grill! And hope you had a great Easter! The Watcher and One Perfect Lie looks like great thrillers.

  20. 4am is EARLY. Congrats to your daughter. That is quite an accomplishment. I can't run 3 miles without wishing for death :)
