Stacking the Shelves #100


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

It has been a cold but rather quiet week.  We are going to spend our day today celebrating Christmas a little late with my husband's family.  We don't usually do a lot for New Years but I am looking forward to a peaceful night at home with my family.

Books for Review
Twisted Truths by Rebecca Zanetti (Publisher)
Slammed by Victoria Denault (Publisher)
Back Home at Firefly Lake by Jen Gilroy (Publisher)
Luckiest Cowboy of All by Carolyn Brown (Publisher)
Changing the Rules by Erin Kern (Publisher)

I was lucky enough to receive this lovely set of books from Forever (Grand Central Publishing).  Some of these books will be released in 2018 while others are recent releases.  I have had my eye on a couple of these so I am very happy to get a chance to read them.

Books Purchased


First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones (Audible Purchase)
No Good Dragon Goes Unpunished by Rachel Aaron (Audible Purchase)
Killman Creek by Rachel Caine (Audible Purchase)
Mordacious by Sarah Lyons Fleming (Audible Purchase)
Nevernight by Jay Kristoff (Audible Purchase)
Krampus: The Yule Lord by Brom (Audible Purchase)

So that's a lot of audiobooks, huh?  I try to stock up when Audible has their 2 books for 1 credit sale which started this week.  I also received a $10 credit on the site which I used to add the audio to Killman Creek and Mordacious for only $1.99 each.  I still have $6 in credit left to spend and may add a few more books before the 2 for 1 sale is over.

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!

  3. OOh nice! I LOOOOVE the Charley Davidson series! As you might have noticed I was playing catch up these past two weeks or so! It's amazing! Pace yourself with them because book 12 ended with a doozie of a cliffhanger and book 13 isn't out until October 30th!! It's insane! Lol!

    Hope you have a good Christmas with your family this weekend!

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

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. I actually have most of the series already and have for years. I just haven't read them yet. I thought maybe I would be more likely to work in the audio. Thanks, Jessica!

  5. I'll be posting mine tomorrow just so I can end the year with a roundup post! It seems fitting that way. My New Year will be a quiet night curled up in bed with a pile of chocolate and a couple of books!

  7. I reaaaally didn't like First Grave on the Right, but a lot of people found it really fun, so here's hoping you'll be one of the ones who enjoy it! :) And the rest of your haul too, of course.

    1. I have my fingers crossed that I will enjoy the series. I bought the ebooks years ago but haven't read them yet so I hope that I will have a better time fitting the audio into my reading schedule.

  8. We do quiet things for New Year's Eve, too.
    Very nice haul there. Nice picks for the Audible two for one sale. I've been curious about Nevernight. :)

    Happy New Years, Carole!

  13. Wow! You have some physical books this time! I feel like that doesn't happen very often.

    I still need to read/buy Nevernight. Everyone seems to enjoy it.

    1. You are right, Rachelle. I get a lot more digital books that physical books anymore. I am always worried about small print and my old eyes. I think I should be okay with this group.

  16. Some great books. I wish I had better luck with audio books. I have a hard cover of Krampus. I just make it a priority this year. We are staying home with the pups for New Years! Have a good one.

    1. I am lucky that I can listen to audios while I am at work. I have found that not every kind of book works for me to multi task with but re-reads really make the day go by quickly.

  17. Slammed is certainly eye-catching. But got me curious about Krampus. Happy reading.
