Stacking the Shelves (113)/ 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 ReviewerI'm hoping to discover some new blogs to love.

I had to make a library run this week because I requested "Snotgirl" and it finally came in.  Excited to see what this one has to offer and I've heard a few good things about it.  I saw "Royce Rolls" while I was there and have been curious about it since Clare at Duel Reads read it.  Finally, who can resist a new Joe Hill graphic novel so I grabbed "Tales from the Darkside" too.



I grabbed a few books for Paul Anka from Amazon.  "Stillhouse Lake" was my Kindle first pick for the month of June.  I loved the Veronica Stillwell series by Deanna Raybourn so when I saw "Silent in the Grave" for less than $2.00, I knew I wanted to give it a try.  "Slippery Souls" was a free book and I couldn't resist it once I read the tagline.  Tell me if you agree:

Welcome to a whacky world of vampires, werewolves & zombies!
 ...oh and a sarcastic, talking dog."



Finally I received a few review copies.  "Shark Island" is one I'm thrilled to get especially since I feel in love with "Jaws" all over again on Memorial Day weekend.  "How I Lost You" sounds like a pretty decent thriller.  And "Einstein."  Let met tell you about "Einstein."  Charlie wakes up one night to find an alien in the house who tells him it's the end of the world and he is there to save Einstein - Charlie's dog.  This book has me written all over it!



So what did you add to your shelves this week???

  1. I like the sound of Slippery Souls...the cover had me thinking of the Sin De Jour books. Big Yes to Shark Island and I LOVE that cover! I'll check out both books on Goodreads. Nice mixture of books this week!

  2. Einstein made me laugh out loud! And I am so jealous you already have ac opy of Stillhouse Lake! I have to ask though what is the tagline for Slippery souls? I think it must be right in front of me, but it's not registering

    1. It's "Welcome to a whacky world of vampires, werewolves & zombies! ...oh and a sarcastic, talking dog." I tried to bold it so it would stick out but I think most people looked for it on the book cover. I'm so excited to have a copy of Stillhouse Lake too.

  7. Einstein is the name of the dog in Dean Koontz's Watchers. :) I look forward to seeing what you think of Shark Island. I noticed this past week there was only one review on Goodreads and it was a 1-star, but the review made me really want to read the book. It sounds like bloody good fun.

  8. Snotgirl....you have me really curious about that one. I picked Stillhouse Lake as my Kindle First pick this month as well. It wasn't a tough choice like it usually is. I hope you enjoy all of these!
