Stacking the Shelves (33)

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.  Last week was extremely busy and I didn't get to post my new additions, so I apologize if this seems a tad long.

Physical copies:

High Places: Annette Marie Spiezio (skinny book on top) - I received this one for review from the author and it talks about the emotional and spiritual connection between humans and dogs.
City of Ashes (Mortal Instrucments #2): Cassandra Clare - I never read these and owned none, so when I say the new covers, which have glorious spines, I decided to start picking them up.  I also bought the first one on a separate trip but was too lazy to walk upstairs and get it.
What's A Dog For?: John Homans, and The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: Aurthur Conan Doyle were picked up at Bookoutlet
Bradstreet Gate: Robin Kirman - Received this from Blogging for Books earlier this week.

Once Upon A Zombie (The Color of Fear): Billy Phillips - I already had a ARC from Netgalley but Toon Studios Press sent me a lovely hardcover to review.
Magnificent Vibrations: Rick Springfield - I also already bought this for my kindle but couldn't resist when I saw a signed copy at Bookoutlet.  I am an 80's fangirl and ADORE Springfield.  I had to have a book he actually touched!
Furiously Happy: Jenny Lawson - Although I loved her first book and knew I would get this one eventually, I had no plans on walking out of Walmart with it Wednesday.  However, I did and I am glad.  I love Rory on the cover.

Digital ARCs:

Seize the Night Shriver Salvage Marked

Seize the Night New Tales of Vampiric Terror: Christopher Golden, Ed. - This comes out October 6th from Gallery Books.
Shriver: Chris Belden - Releases September 29, 2015 from Touchstone - I've heard decent things about this one.
Salvage A Ghost Story: Duncan Ralston - Releases November 10, 2015 from Forsaken.  This has good ratings so far.
Marked (The Soulseer Chronicles #1): Sue Tingey.  I really was drawn to this cover.  Jo Fletcher Books already released this one in March.

For my Kindle:
Briar Queen Ella the Slayer Salt and Storm The Withering

Briar Queen (Night and Nothing #2): Katherine Harbour - I still haven't read Thorn Jack but this was on sale last week so I grabbed it before the price went up again.
Ella the Slayer: A.W. Exley - Have wanted this for a while and it was marked down last weekend as well.
Salt & Storm: Kendall Kulper - Been eyeing this one for some time.
The Withering: Joshua Jacobs - Don't know much to say except I think this one has to do with zombies or a plague or something.

So have you read any of these and what did you add to your shelves this week.  Be sure to comment so I can be sure to check out your haul.  Have a great reading weekend!


  1. Nice haul! I hope they all turn out to be good reads. I picked up a few vampire and zombie freebies the last few weeks and I've had the chance to enjoy them this week! I love a good gory vamp or zombiefest!

  2. Oh, you have so many good books! Cassandra Clare has beautiful covers. I bought the set, but was turned off by some subject matter in book one. I've been told to keep reading though, so I'll give it a go.

    Love the cover for Once Upon A Zombie! I almost got Briar Queen until I saw it was book two. *bummer* The Withering looks properly creepy. Might have to check it out.

    Great haul!!

  3. You got a lot of nice books this week! You grabbed up Briar Queen for the same reason I did last week...LOL. Can't beat a deal!

    Week in Review

  4. You got some amazing books!! I have Once Upon a Zombie on my TBR list ever since I saw that cover, I love it <3 so lucky you also got the hardcover! :D

    Lipstick and Mocha

  5. I haven't read any of these. They sound really good. Enjoy!

  6. Fabulous mix here. Yay for Rick's signed book - loved him in General Hospital. And Yay for Jenny Lawson's latest. I was tempted to get it. But really enjoyed hearing the audio of her first book which she read. So, I'm holding out for it.

  7. Wow, that's a lotta books! I think I actually managed to get through the week without buying any new books. I was tempted a few times, but I swore I'd read some of the books I've already got before buying more! (But I definitely want to read FURIOUSLY HAPPY. That cover kills me.)

    1. Jackie, I started House Trained last night when I went to bed - wanted to read something on my Kindle so I didn't have to have a light on. Can't wait to get back to it this week after I finish Deceptions!
