Stacking the Shelves (143)/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 Reviewer

So I was naughty and one physical book happened to jump in my cart at Walmart this week.  I swear I tried to talk it out of it but it was adamant that it was sick and tired of Walmart's decor.  And seeing as how this was the day of the biggest fight with Mr. Barb's insurance company (see yesterday's post if your want more details), I just didn't have the energy to tell it no.  Plus, not to imply anything but the girl on the cover looks pretty badass and guns....





I also grabbed Alex and the Other and Sneaking Out from Netgalley.  I really need to know why the cat has green eyes and Sneaking Out sounds really cool.

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

  2. I thought I had requested Gunslinger Girl from the publisher, but I never got a copy. It's definitely on my TBR, though. I'd love to hear what you think!

    1. I hope I can get to it soon but I'll be honest, it doesn't look promising.

  3. I think you should be congratulated for rescuing a poor enslaved book from evil Walmart!

    1. Yea, I'm a tad leery of the James Patterson tag but I like some of his works and I think it's just his publishing imprint. Maybe you can go to the event?

  14. I hadn't heard of this one until a couple of weeks ago. I still don't know much about it, but the author is coming to NYC for a signing. I have to decide if I want to go...

    Enjoy your new book!

  15. This is the first time I've heard of Gunslinger Girl. If I saw that on a shelf, I'd be tempted to pick it up too! I don't blame you for giving in to its call :)

    1. Yep. Thankfully we finally got things ironed out. I might not have stressed so much but I was having similar problems with Gpa's and it was just too much at once!

  27. Gunslinger Girl sounds so good!! I just love that cover. I'd read it just for the cover alone. LOL! And hey, if a book jumps into your cart well you just have to adopt it and take it home! <3 :P
