Stacking the Shelves #192

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

My Life
My husband and I went to see a football game at my daughter's college last Saturday.  It was about a 5-hour round trip and it was pretty cold sitting at the game but I got to see my girl so I guess it was worth it.  I ended Sunday with another headache which hung around until late Monday.  It has otherwise been a pretty calm week even though I never seem to have enough time to get things done. 

My daughter is coming home from college for the weekend.  It will be nice to have her home for a couple of days.  Tonight we are going out to dinner to celebrate my mom's birthday.  I have my fingers crossed that Sunday will be a quiet day. 

Books Added
Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik (Purchase - BOTM)
The Fountains of Silence by Ruta Sepetys (Purchase - BOTM)
The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow (Purchase - BOTM)
At the Water's Edge by Sara Gruen (Purchase - Gym)
Strange Weather by Joe Hill (Purchase - Used Bookstore)
Bone Crossed by Patricia Briggs (Purchase - Used Bookstore)
Don't Breathe a Word by Christie Craig (Publisher)
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaimen (Purchase - Gym)
Not My Daughter by Kate Hewitt (Publisher)
Unnatural Magic by C.M. Waggoner (Publisher)
Somebody's Daughter by David Bell (Purchase - Gym)
Song of the Crimson Flower by Julie C. Dao (Publisher - Bookish First)

Yes, I know that this is an obnoxious number of books to add in a single week.  I got three books from the Book of the Month club.  I picked up three books from the sale cart at the gym that I use which cost me a total of $1.  We visited a neat used bookstore when we visited my daughter at her college last week and I picked up two more books.  And publishers were very kind to me this week and sent 4 books for review. 

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!

  10. Such a great haul! I love Bone Crossed so much! And Spinning Silver is one I keep meaning to read. Happy reading!

  11. I added a few YA books this week that I'm excited about, and a thriller. I've been on a thriller kick lately. I really want to read Spinning Silver by Naomi Novak. I think I may take a storm day this winter and read that one. It seems like such a good book to cuddle up with!

    I hope you had a great visit with your daughter. Thanks for sharing. :)

  12. Awesome haul and really, there's no such thing as too many books!

  16. Oh I love a big book haul! I may have to do some book shopping for myself very soon! So glad that you were able to see your daughter and happy birthday to your mom! Hope the headache is gone and you're having a great week!

  17. Nice that you got to see your daughter but sorry to hear about the headache. So many books last week! It’s so fun to do that sometimes. Hope you find some new favorites in there! :)

  18. Glad to hear you got to spend some time with your daughter! 👍✨

    I still need to read a Joe Hill book. 📚

    I hope you had a wonderful week. 🌞

  19. I am glad the game wasn't all too bad. I hope you enjoy having your daughter over this weekend! That sounds like it is going to be fun. And yay for all of the new books. I am curious about Spinning Silver. And I really REALLY want to read The Doors of January and also The Fountains of Silence as well DD: I have heard good things about The Graveyard Book as well.

  20. I so want to read Fountains of Silence! This haul is awesome. And I don't feel so bad about my end of October haul.

    Happy reading!
