Stacking The Shelves – a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews
HERE ARE THE RULES:
Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!
- Participants are to create their own Stacking the Shelves post and link bank to Tynga’s Reviews so more people can join the fun!
- Posts can be laid out any way you want.
- The host site posts updates on a Saturday but bloggers taking part can post any day they choose.
- Visit Tynga’s Reviews on a Saturday and add your link.
- Visit other participants sites to find out what they have added!
The rules are simple and it is a really fun way to showcase your books and see what other bloggers are excited about this week! Not to mention the fact that it is a good way to interact with and get to know other bloggers!
here are the books i added to my shelves this week:
I have been wanting to buy Fairest for ages and I finally caved! Every Breath is also a book I have been wanting to read for a long time so when it went on sale (£3.33 for the hardback!) I couldn’t resist! Encounter looks like a fun story so I picked that up as well.
Now for the fairy tale retellings! I have wanted to read Patricia A. McKillip for ages so I finally decided to pick up a couple of her books (some of them are really hard to get a hold of). Briar Rose is another retelling that I have been wanting to read so I picked that up too. Rounding this list off, I also decided to pick up Entreat Me (as I had bought the author’s other two books last week). I am pretty excited about my little fairy tale haul!
I won this book in a giveaway held by the lovely Christina @ Christina Reads YA. Thanks so much to Christina for this amazing giveaway (and also for making the giveaway international – the postal costs for this must have been astronomical). I was really excited to receive this package in the mail this week.
I am really loving the Kindle First option to read upcoming releases a month ahead of their release date (even better for me as an Amazon Prime member – I get the book for free). This fantasy novel looks awesome!
There were a ton of freebies up on Amazon this week. I couldn’t resist picking up a few (well 16 actually but who’s counting 😉 ). Temporary Bliss and Neanderthal Seeks Human look like decent romances. Not normally my genre of choice but I want to start branching out a bit more again. A Song for Julia I just had to snap up since I already have one of the books in this series. Chasing Nikki also looked pretty good.
I have heard a lot about Cora Carmack recently so couldn’t resist picking up All Lined Up. I hadn’t heard of Inky, Bound or Angel After Dark but the blurbs for these books sounded pretty interesting.
Arouse and Reasonable Doubt also looked pretty good and I have been meaning to pick up the Fallen Crest High series for a while so was happy to pick up the first book as a freebie! Southern Rocker Boy also had an interesting blurb.
I have heard a lot about Dusty (which started off as a highly regarded Twilight fan fiction). When I saw that the newly reworked story was available for free I just had to pick it up. Maps looks like a really interesting read (always up for a bit m/m) and Existence also looked pretty intriguing (plus I’ve heard a lot about Abbi Glines).
I was overjoyed to be approved for both Watch the Sky and The Stars Never Rise. I adored Kirsten Hubbard’s Wanderlove and Rachel Vincent is one of my favourite authors. I was also really looking forward to A School for Unusual Girls so was delighted to be approved for this as well. I hadn’t heard of The Zeuorian Awakening but was drawn in by the synopsis.
The Edge of Forever has been on my radar for ages so I was really happy when it came up on Edelweiss as a download (same with The Temple of Doubt). Taking The Stand is another book I was happy to get approved for because I have the first two books in the series and now can read them all together! Nowhere But Here also looked really awesome (and I have yet to be let down by a Katie McGarry book). 😉
I was very happy to be approved for Fury (having the first book already) and The Dark Light looks really awesome. Also rocking a bit of old skool with Eva Ibbotson and Greg Keyes.
Well, that it for this week folks. I went a bit mad as per usual but I am really excited about my haul this week. I had a lot of fun with my purchases/acquisitions!
Hope you have all had a good week.
Bye for now!
