Stacking the Shelves #66

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

Nothing too excited happened in my world this week.  On Sunday, I celebrated Easter with a nice dinner along with my husband, two daughters, and mother.  We had a meeting at my daughter's school one evening but other than that we just had quiet nights at home. 

Digital Books

Lord of Lies by Amy Sandas (NetGalley)
Angels Flight by Michael Connelly (Kindle Purchase)
Ruined by Amy Tintera (Kindle Purchase)
Unsub by Meg Gardiner (First to Read)
The Marsh King's Daughter by Karen Dionne (First to Read)
The Sunshine Sisters by Jane Green (First to Read)
Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman (First to Read)

I was totally drawn to the cover of Lord of Lies and hope that the story inside lives up to the cover.  I enjoy Michael Connelly and am slowly picking up his books as they go on sale.  I have seen a lot of great reviews for Ruined so I snatched that book as soon as I saw that it was on sale.  I am having a hard time resisting all of the awesome books on offer from First to Read lately.  I hope the four I added this week are as good as they sound.

Print Books
Hunger by Eve Langlais, Kate Douglas, and A.C. Arthur (St. Martin's Press)

This showed up at my house as a complete surprise.  I wouldn't have picked this book out for myself but I may at least give it a try. 

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. It's been a quiet week here too and the weather is a bit warmer so I'm in pure sloth mode! Need to make more effort reading for the rest of this month as it hasn't been great recently. Have a good weekend!

  2. We had a nice quiet Easter as well! Sometimes those quiet days are needed! Lol! Nice new reads! Lots of new to me ones! Hope you enjoy them all!

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

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  4. Glad you had a great Easter, Carole. I hope you enjoy all these books. Lord of Lies and Hunger look great.
    Have a wonderful week and happy reading. :)

  5. Oooh, Eleanor Oliphant looks really good. Looking forward to your review.

  6. Glad to hear you had a wonderful Easter with your family!!

    I just read Lord of Lies and really enjoyed it. I am looking forward to seeing what you think of it.

  7. Glad you had a nice Easter!! I am always tempted by those First to Read books but didn't get any this time. Enjoy them all and have a great week!!

  8. Nothing much has been happening around here, either. I’m glad you had a good Easter. Enjoy your new books!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  9. YES, you got Ruined! I loved Ruined, and I loved Avenged even more. The third book seriously could not come soon enough. I think I might download Lord of Lies as well! It sounds awesome, and several blogger friends have really enjoyed Sandas's books. I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

    Have a great weekend. =)

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

  10. I see you hit First to Read as well. Hope the ones we grabbed are good. Nice haul and it's great that you had a nice quiet Easter with family. Hope you have a great week!

  11. Enjoy! I see some interesting ones in there

  12. Quiet weeks are great.

    Oh, you did make a killing at First Read. Ha, its fun when the surprise review books come and some really are an interesting choice that leave me scratching my head at times, too. :)

    Have a good week, Carole!

  13. I love the cover of Hunger!! It is absolutely beautiful.
    I hope you enjoy all your new books. Have a lovely weekend.
    Here is my STS 

  14. That Hunger books looks super pretty! Unsub and Ruined sound pretty cool too, I'm going to have to check those out!!

  15. So I like the cover to Hunger (and the author and I share a name so hehe) with the wolf eyes. But I also am intrigued by Unsub and it may just be that I adore me some Criminal Minds and it gives me good vibes like that!

  16. I've heard good things about Ruined too and have been meaning to try Amy Tintera. The Marsh King's Daughter has me curious too. Glad you had a good Easter, have a great week ahead. :)

  17. Happy to hear you had a great Easter with your family. I'll be looking for your review of Hunger, the cover is interesting. Enjoy your new reads and have a wonderful week.

  18. I've seen Ruined around and wasn't too sure whether to pick it up or not. I'm gonna look up The Marsh King's Daughter and Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine on goodreads. Both looks interesting. Hope you have a great week ahead, Carole!

  19. Sounds like a great time! I love nights at home, gives you so much time to read. Other than Easter Dinner, I too didn't go out anywhere, I got a lot of reading done this week. Great haul!
    Here's my STS

  20. Ahhh so jealous! Eleanor Oliphant and The Marsh King's Daughter are two I've been looking forward to and I am sooo jealous I didn't get them from First to Read! Going to be stalking you for reviews!

  21. Your books are all new to me but I hope you'll enjoy them. happy reading!

  22. It sounds like you had a nice week and Easter, Carole. And look at all those great sounding books! I have yet to read anything by Jane Green, but I hope to one of these days. And you can't go wrong with Michael Connelly. Enjoy your books! Have a great week, Carole!

  23. Quiet nights at home are a good thing. Lord of Lies looks really good! Oo I got Hunger, too. That was a nice surprise :D

  24. Ooh Lord of Lies does look awesome! Ruin also sounds good! Can't wait to hear your thoughts about it! Hope you enjoy your new books! Happy reading (:

  25. I hope you had a good Easter! I think that Ruined is a novel a lot of people like - as you mentioned I've seen a lot of positive reviews for that one. So I hope you enjoy it as well as all the rest of these novels :)
