Stacking the Shelves (154)/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 first up are two physical copies which arrived via Amazon this week.  I don't think either will be much of a surprise.  I had to have "Tomorrow" and although I'm not sure when I'll get to it, I can't wait.  Also, a new Prince book.  This is an self published book and talks about the author's visit to Minnesota on the 1-year Anniversary of Prince's death.  It may not be that great, but I figured it was a different perspective but worth a chance.  


And also, I was super thrilled to get a few books from the publishers and Netgalley.  The "Taste of Wrath" is the last Sin du Jour book which is bittersweet but I can't wait to see how it all wraps up.  I've also been really anticipating "The Atrocities" but it's shorter than I expected - even for a novella.  And finally, I've been seeing "The Favorite Sister" everywhere so I'm curious to see what it's all about. 


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

  2. I haven't seen The Favorite Sister around! I am super curious now. If you don't get to Tomorrow you can save it for me and La La's Dog Days of Summer Challenge in July. Hope you enjoy your books!!!

    1. I know Carole didn't like Tomorrow as much as she hoped but she did tell me I might like it more. I'm not going into it with high expectations because you see how that's worked for me so far this year!

  7. Those are some nice looking books, Barb, I hope you enjoy them. I only got one in the mail this week. Survive The Night by Katie Ruggle. It's an audible and the 3rd in her Rocky Mountain K9 Unit series. I love them!

  14. The Favorite Sister looks interesting. I didn't read Luckiest Girl Alive, but I'm almost always more curious about an author's sophomore work. Happy reading!

  25. No surprises on the two books you got from Amazon! As soon as I heard the plot of Tomorrow I figured you'd have to grab it. I hope they both work well for you.
