Stacking the Shelves (155)/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

First up Laura Daleo sent me a copy of her new paranormal/fantasy book "The Vampire Within."  The MC is named Cass and she even inscribed it that she hopes he can live up to my Cass.


Next I grabbed a few free/cheap books from Amazon.  "The Other Brother" was free and I've read a Massey book before and really enjoyed it.  I've been wanting to read "Turn of the Screw" so I grabbed it for free.  I have a horror sequel to it and realized I needed the original.  I also saw "The Blizzard" and since it was free and I love book set in wintry, snowy setting (BOOKS Mother Nature - not real life - are you listening) I couldn't resist.


And finally I received a copy of "They Feed" for review through my Spring Into Horror Reading Challenge.  


So what books did you add this week????

  8. I’ve always meant to read The Turn of the Screw. It’s one of those books that I’ve been putting off for years for no good reason. I hope you enjoy all these!

  16. You know, I MIGHT be interested in "The Vampire Within", unless, of course, there's a bona fide horror component to it.... If there are any elements of erotica involved, of course that would also be a complete turnoff! Lol.

    As for the other books....well, you know how I feel about the horror genre, lol. (I'm stepping out on a limb with "Dread Nation", that's for sure!!)

    Hope you enjoy all of these, Barb!! HUGS TO YOU AND THE PUPS, AND WOOF, WOOF TO THEM!!! <3 <3 <3 :) :) :)

    1. I'll keep you informed about the horror component in Vampire Within. I don't really expect one so I think it would be a safe read. Can't wait to see how you do with Dread Nation!

  17. Looks like a good haul to me. :) I hope you enjoy them all. That inscription about Cass is awesome.
