Stacking the Shelves (128) / Sunday Post - Hint: You Might See Some Dogs (who am I kidding???)

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've been in a kind of funk lately (for no real reason except my Mother is driving me nuts) and as always, I 1-clicked a tad.  I also had some review requests come in and then requested two additional books from First to Read.  As you get to the bottom of this post, you'll probably notice a theme.

Here's what I got for Paul Anka, my much loved Kindle.  I saw someone mention Letters to the Damned was on sale for $.99 so I grabbed it (I'm telling you - this Halloween Bingo over at Booklikes is introducing me to so many new horror reads).  Chuckles shared Fight Like a Man on her Can't Wait Wednesday feature and I decided I wanted to give it a go and then I'm on a real Hunter Shea kick so when Megalodon in Paradise was a countdown deal on Kindle last weekend, I HAD to grab it!

My physical copy of Last Dog on Earth finally arrived.  I had to get it from overseas.



And finally I have a few review copies.  I got approved for Barking Up the Wrong Tree and Every Dog Has His Day on the same day even though I know I requested them a month apart.  And that dog on the cover of Every Dog STILL looks like a goat to me (because it has something in its mouth).  Then I got Death in the Stacks which is #8 in the Library Lovers series from the same author, from Penguin First to Read.


And on a side note, look at this awesome purse/tote Mr. Barb got me!  I love it and it's real leather - now I'm afraid to use it - haha!


So what did you guys add to your stacks this week???

  1. Being stressed or in a funk typically drives me to one-click...it's like, I just don't care, it looks good and I want it! I try not to regret it afterwards :P

  2. *screams* and adds the new Hunter Shea book to my Amazon basket! There is no way I could resist a shark book with that cover and title! Might be reading that in horror month...I think I'll be waiting until Fight Like A Man comes out in paperback or the ebook reduces a bit in price but I'm definitely going to get it at some point. Hope we both like it. My Cover Love in a couple of weeks time has dog covers. You probably have them already!

    LOVE the bag! I can understand you being scared to use it! I have a great GoT bag but it just sits in the house as I'm scared it will rain or something and ruin it!

    1. Glad you know how I feel about that bag. I'm sure I'll use it sometime but with winter coming up, maybe I'll wait until spring. I just read Shea's We Are Watching and loved it!

  3. Great haul, hope it can help you out of that funk. Halloween Bingo has added to my wishlist that is for sure! I hope the new Shea book is good, though I am sure it will be as I haven't found one yet that wasn't interesting. :)

    That dog does kind of look like a goat with something in it's mouth...lol. Such an awesome tot!!

    Have a great weekend!

  6. I understand about being driven crazy by mothers. Haha. And that leading to the urge to build up the books. It sounds like you got some great ones. Thank you for the head's up about Letters for the Damned! I just got a copy (I couldn't wait). The McKinlay books sound like a lot of fun. Love the tote Mr. Barb got you! That was really nice of him. :-)

    I hope you enjoy your new books and tote!

    Have a great week, Barb!

    1. The dog books are her first go at romance. They are pretty good, but I love her Library Lovers series so much too!

  10. I click to buy on Amazon a lot more when I'm stressed, too; and my issues are usually with my daughter. Occasionally. This week was a good one, though. She and I even had a nice lunch.

    Enjoy your books, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  14. I've also been in a funk this week! Just too busy to feel alright. Your Kindle is called Paul Anka? That is the cutest ever :D (I wonder if I've said that already? I might have!)
    So many dog themed things, great haul (including the bag!) Have a great week, Barb :)

    1. No I don't think you've mentioned it before. I named him after Lorelai's dog in Gilmore Girls. His cover has a dog on it as well.

  18. Books are a good therapy! Buying books always make me happy (though sometimes I side-eye myself later). Mothers can be annoying, right? Hopefully not *too* annoying though.

    I hope you enjoy all of your new books! Have a lovely week, Barb. =)

    1. I love her but she just gets on my nerves sometimes. It's been harder since she's started dating after my Dad passing. I just wish she'd find a nice guy.

    1. She's not so bad but I'm an only child and Dad passed about 4 1/2 years ago. She's dating now again and not making the best choices and it drives me insane!

  22. I am trying NOT to add anymore books to my pile but you are NOT helping!! I hope you're out of your funk soon. I was in a funk over the weekend as well and didn't read a single page :(

  24. I love Jenn McKinlay! I've read several books in the library series and really like them though sometimes the mystery isn't the strongest. The newest series is tempting me something fierce! Have a great week!
