Stacking the Shelves (116) / 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 by Kimberly@Caffeinated Book ReviewerI'm hoping to discover some new blogs to love.

First up this week is a physical book I ordered as a "reward" for my first week without soda.  I found it at Abe Books for $3.00 and free shipping so I'm thinking that may say something about how good/bad this book is. I have heard mixed reviews but my library hasn't gotten it yet and I'm pretty curious.  It even arrived in good shape,



Next I grabbed some freebies and a few paid for books from Amazon. "Girl with the Clockwork Cat," "Mutts Like Me," "Wicker Hollow," and "Paper Scissors Death" were all free. I pre-ordered "Asylum" for $2.99 and it finally arrived and another blogger recommended "Good Guys Love Dogs" and it must have been at a weak moment because I immediately went and purchased it.



Finally I received the following for review.  I loved "The Demonists" and am thrilled to have the second in that series, "Dark Exodus."  I honestly don't remember requested "Reincarnation Blues" but apparently I did.  Finally, I couldn't resist "Little One" - bring on the horror!  Plus it's a WV writer and the book includes a WV location.


What did you add to your shelves this week and have you read any of these?  Which ones should I read first???

  2. Oh dear I see a cat! Booker T is not going to like it! I haven't read any of these but I like some of those covers especially Mutts like me. I'm all about apocalypses, horror and urban fantasy this week! Have a good weekend!

    1. I think I've managed to slip this one by him. I really want to make time for some urban fantasy. I love it so much but it seems to be the least of what I read.

    1. Well, it's now Monday and the weekend was busy, but at least we didn't get all the storms they were calling for - just lots and lots of rain.

  6. Great deal on The Black Witch, I have this book and haven't had a chance to read it yet, hopefully soon. I thought about getting Asylum but I'm not sure yet, but I do like the cover. A lot of great books this week, I hope you enjoy them and have a wonderful day.

  7. Paper Scissors Death cracks me up! And The Girl and the Clockwork Cat looks kinda good- although that cat looks mean! And Little One- eek does look scary. :)

    1. I love the dog on the cover. I've always wanted a Great Dane but they are so big and their life expectancy is so short I know they would break my heart!

    2. I didn't know they had a short life expectancy. What a shame, they're such beautiful dogs.

    1. It really slipped by me too. I stumbled across it on Goodreads accidentally when doing a TTT post, ran to Netgalley to see if they had it, and got an approval the next day. I'm really excited for it!

  21. First of all -- way to go as you break your soda habit. That's awesome. I am curious to hear your thoughts on The Black Witch because of all the controversy surrounding it. Enjoy all your new books!
