Stacking the Shelves (130) / Sunday Post - The King Has Arrived!

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.

I had two preorders arrive this week - something I rarely do.  However, the price was good and Amazon has been good about getting new books delivered on their release dates.  I don't know why that's so important to me - it's not like I read them on that day!  Still, it's exciting.  Of course I had to get a copy of Sleeping Beauties and it's so expensive in the stores so at least Amazon was almost $13.00 cheaper.  Also, couldn't resist adding Scooby Apocalypse Vol. 2 to my shelves.


I ordered a new release on mu Kindle.  Not making any excuses - I just wanted to.  I featured The Ravenous on a Can't Wait Wednesday feature earlier this year.  Does anyone else think the girl on the front looks like Lena Dunham?


And of course there are a couple of review books.  I'm thrilled to get Weave A Circle Round and The Murders of Molly Southbourne from Tor.  Also, I've seen some good comments on The Tethered Mage so I'm hoping I find it good as well.  These come out in October and November. \


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

  2. oooh, I just found out about the murders of molly southbourne and I am sooo intrigued by it! Also, I am liking the tethered mage cover, because well, it's about flying and being untethered, so it has piqued my curiousity big time

    1. I hope both are good. The Murder of Molly Southbourne is a novella so it shouldn't take long to get through. I love birds on the cover of things!

  3. I hope to get a few horror books looked at next month but I have a few books to finish first. I suppose politics and Game of Thrones could both count as horror...!

    1. It's such an expensive book. That's why I preordered it from Amazon. It was the cheapest place I found plus I have free shipping!

    1. I love so many of his works. I know some people just stay away from him. His last one, Gwendy's Button Box, is a great read and is novella length. I'd recommend trying it if you want to dive in.

  17. That's a very nice haul, Barb! And Sleeping Beauties look so good. I haven't read a SK novel in ages, because they just plain scare me too much o.O
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

    1. You should try Gwendy's Button Box - his last one. It's novella length and it isn't really scary but I loved it!

  18. Scooby Apocalypse looks so cool :D Scooby was one of my childhood favorites! Didn't know they were still releasing that stuff.
    And I added way too many books, considering how little I read in September! Oh well :)
    Have a great October!

  22. Weave A Circle Round has a great cover and title. Have to check it out. I'm sure I'll eventually get King's new book. I like to but the hardcovers of his books. And I adore Scooby Doo!

    1. I have to have hardcovers of his too. Everyone can use some Scooby in their life!

  23. I got f Sleeping Beauties on my night stand too! I'm looking at it horrified because it's SO MASSIVE! a book like that for a reader with a chronic DNF condition like mine it's like a casket for a claustrophobic! LOL!!! I think I'm going to wait for you to read it first and post your review and convinced me to read it LOL

    1. To me it's not a real King book unless it's massive!

  24. Okay I have never heard of Scooby Apocalypse. I need to check that out as a scooby lover.

  25. I'm very curious about The Murders of Molly Southbourne; I'll have to check that out at some point. Hope you enjoy the new books!

  26. I don't often pre-order books either, and, like you, when I do, I get excited. And then I don't read them right away. Oh well. At least we have them on hand when we are ready to read them. All of your new books sound good! I've been wanting to read The Tethered Mage. Enjoy your new books, Barb.

  27. Great stack of books this week! I haven't read a lot of King but just added it to my Book of the Month box and am looking forward to it. Ravenous looks great! I look forward to your review!

  28. Haha I love that you NEED the books on release day even though you don't read them. I only do ebook preorders, so those just show up on my kindle, and the books I love enough to preorder, I usually do read that very day :-P

    ReplyDelete
  29. LOL I totally get the need on release day. Even if it's just to be able to pet the new arrival :D
