Stacking the Shelves #117


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

My Life
It looks like spring has finally arrived and agreed to stay a while this time.  The nice weather is wonderful but my allergies are driving me nuts.  It's worth it though and the dogs certainly are enjoying it.  This was a pretty good week around my house.  My daughter made it back from her band trip to Atlanta and had a nice time.  I had a pretty light week at work and was even able to sneak out a little early on Friday.

Books Added This Week
Trapped by Kevin Hearne (eStories)
Hunted by Kevin Hearne (eStories)
A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro (Audiobook Sync)

I didn't add any review books this week so that is a win in my book.  I am working my way through the Iron Druid Chronicles in audio so I decided to add two more of the books to my collection with a couple of credits that I had in my account at eStories.  Audiobook Sync started up this week and I was really excited to get the chance to download A Study in Charlotte this weekIf you haven't had the chance to check out this program yet, I highly suggest that you take a peek since they have some amazing books lined up to give away over the next couple of months.

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 know, the weather has been pretty awesome hasn't it?! Though I am not looking forward to what's to come. Upper 80s and then 90s and humidity. Ugh. I want it to stay in the 70s for awhile!! Lol!

    Nice new reads! I sooo need to get caught up on the Iron Druid series! I think I've figured it out that I just need to read the last 3, which was when the books went into hardcover and I just somehow fell sooo behind! Whelp!

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

    Have a GREAT day!

  2. Ugh, sorry about your allergies. I'm lucky enough not to have any of those but I have sympathy for anyone who does. The temperature is a little better-not warn but not really cold so I'm ok with that. I've added a mixture this week from the 50 I grabbed a couple of weeks ago but bad Chuckles has already downloaded 10 freebies today!

  12. Oh I hate allergies! Mine seem to have settled down a bit but the Tornado and I were both miserable for a few weeks. Yay for no new review books! Definitely a big accomplishment and that Kevin Hearne series looks amazing. I've heard raves. Have a great week!

  13. Is AudioSYNC running again already? I need to take a look!
    My only (yay me!) new book this week is an ARC of Brand New Friend by Kate Vane. I'm getting overwhelmed with books so am going to try not to buy/accept/exchange any in May. Let's see how long that lasts!

  17. I hear the audios of Iron Druid are really good, so I'm curious to check them out! I really want to get into audios for when I'm at the gym. :)

  19. I can certainly relate when it comes to allergies. Today it's GORGEOUS out, but even just driving around in my car with the fan on makes my eyes itch. Sigh.

  20. I’m glad you had a good week! It’s been warmer here, too, but I can’t spend much time outside because my dog had surgery last week and is needy. Enjoy your new books!

  22. Yay for lovely weather! It has started improving over here too although it does rain a lot. I'm not surprised though as I live in the UK :D Also, I really enjoyed A Study in Scarlet so I hope you will be able to like it just as much too. I need to continue that series actually...
