Stacking the Shelves (112) / Sunday Post

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. And it now has a new co-host where individuals can link up as well - Marlene from Reading Reality.  Clicking on the book (or title) should take you to the Goodreads page.

I'm also now linking up with the Sunday Post which is hosted byKimberly@Caffeinated Book Reviewer. I'm hoping to discover some new blogs to love.

This week I received an order from Amazon of 2 physical copies I just had to add to my shelves. Even though I think it was over priced, I had to add Gwendy's Button Box by Stephen King and Richard Chizmar just because it's King.  I also grabbed Grim Death and Bill the Electrocuted Criminal because I love Sniegoski's work and I didn't realize this book was even by him until I saw it in a bookstore a few weeks ago,


Of course I had to grab a few books either for free or on the cheap for Paul Anka (my Kindle). Actually I think all four of these were free this week but please double check before you buy.  I have several other Willow Rose horror novels so I had to grab Humpty Dumpty.  I saw a review for Sharp Shooter on YouTube and the reviewer really enjoyed it so when I looked and it was free, Paul Anka gobbled it right up.  Who can resist a cover like Nicor!?  Plus it was already on my wishlist and Suffer a Witch has one of my buzzwords - witch.


Finally I received a few review copies and once again, I'm not making any excuses.  Strange Practice sounds awesome and is a historical fiction about a doctor to the undead.  Just look at the cover of Noelle and act like you don't know why I requested it.  Bonfire is by Jessica Jones herself so I wanted to give it a try and Demon Leap caught my attention too.  



So what did you add to your shelves this week and have you read any of these and can provide a recommendation?  Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!

  1. I'm also very curious about Strange Practice! I know I'll probably request it and read it at some point...but I need to resist the temptation until I finish off some books on my tbr :)

    1. It's sounds like a fun read and I was approved the other day and didn't even remember requesting it so I guess that's a sign.

    1. I know the feeling. I just ordered two books from Abe Books yesterday because one I couldn't find elsewhere and one I found much cheaper. Hope they are in good condition because I've not ordered from this site before.

    1. I love the cover of Suffer a Witch. It's been a while since I read a witch book. I might need to remedy that soon.

  14. Good call on Gwendy's Button Box. I enjoyed it, and it really should be on my shelf. I hope you manage to read Grim Death so I can get your thoughts on it. I've been curious about it. :)
