Stacking the Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves or TBR piles, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in a physical store, online, books you borrow from the library or friends, review books, gifts and of course, ebooks! The original meme was started over at Tynga's Reviews. Clicking on the book (or title) should take you to the Goodreads page.
This is my first haul since the Christmas holidays so there may seem like a lot. However, I was very spoiled by Mr. Barb and then I have my usual Kindle books and galleys I would like to share with you.
First of all, Mr. Barb gave me "Prince: Life and Times: Revised" on Christmas Eve. It's a GORGEOUS book and something I will treasure always. It's an embossed hardback with lots of color photos/information and stunning end papers. He said when he saw it in the local bookstore, he knew it was the perfect gift for me and I have to admit he was absolutely right.
He also gifted me "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" - illustrated, "Breaking Creed" by Alex Kava, "Heartless" by Marissa Meyer, "Small Great Things" by Jodi Picoult, "The Abhorsen Chronicles" which contains the first three books, and a wonderful, extremely chunky hardback copy of "The Fireman" by Joe Hill.
I got the following ARCs from Netgally. The synopsis of "Gypsy" really grabbed my attention and I loved "The Ice Twins" so I had to request "The Fire Child." Finally "Dear Sweet Filthy World" is by Caitlin R. Kiernan and I've read some of her other works and really liked them.
Finally, I was contacted by an author about reading his new book. I really liked "Demon with a Comb Over" when I read it last year. "Dread and Breakfast" has such a great cover so I agreed to read it. Look for a review plus an author interview coming up sometime in February.
I know I've grabbed a few Kindle deals/freebies, but I'll just have to add them to next week's post. What did you add to your shelves this week???
