Stacking the Shelves #85


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

I had a pretty good week even though it was rather busy.  I was really slow in terms of reading but that isn't surprising since I had so many things to do.  I keep thinking that things will calm down soon but I should just be honest with myself that life is going to be like this until marching band season is over.

My heart goes out to everyone that has been affected by Hurricane Harvey.

I hope that everyone celebrating Labor Day this weekend has a happy and safe holiday.

Digital Books
A Treacherous Curse by Deanna Raybourn (Edelweiss)
City of Lies by Victoria Thompson (Edelweiss)
A Death in Live Oak by James Grippando (Edelweiss)
Every Dog Has His Day by Jenn McKinlay (NetGalley)

I am so excited by this group of books!  Deanna Raybourn, James Grippando, and Jenn McKinlay are all authors that I have read and loved.  I haven't read Victoria Thompson yet but City of Lies sounds really good.

Print Books
Devils & Thieves by Jennifer Rush (ARC from Novl)

I am very happy that this book made its way to my house this week.  Thank you to the nice people at Novl for sending it to me!

What books do you add to your shelves this week?

  19. When I see how busy everyone is with their kids various activities it makes me grateful that I can be nice and selfish with my time, not having these committments! I'd never keep up with blogging and reading if I had a family so I don't know how you guys do it! Hope you get some decent reading in this week!

  27. I remember the fun of marching band season. So fun but so crazy! It definitely cuts down on reading time. I really want to read the Jenn McKinlay books. I've really enjoyed her cozy mysteries and this dog series is pulling at me hard! Have a great week!

  29. Devils and Thieves -- couldn't resist that title, and I wasn't disappointed -- it's such a cool premise. A Death in Live Oak sounds intriguing as well -- thank you for the intro to a new author!

    1. I really enjoy James Grippando's writing and have been reading his work for a long time. I am actually surprised that he isn't more popular than he it.
