Stacking the Shelves (129) / 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 ReviewerI'm hoping to discover some new blogs to love.

First off I grabbed a physical book this week.  I had Stalking Jack the Ripper so I knew I had to have Hunting Prince Dracula in physical form as well.  Just so happens Walmart had it on release day.  Now to make time to read them both.


 
I grabbed three books for my Kindle.  One night I sat around and searched for horror book videos on BookTube and wouldn't you know, it led to some 1-clicking. I'm excited about these though.  Florence and Giles is a Gothic horror and Cinema of Shadows and Spook House sounded too good to pass up. 




And finally I received three books for review.  Mad Hatter and March Hares is a new anthology.  I don't like Alice in Wonderland but like the retelling #IAmOdd.  Mortal Likeness is the second book in a series so I need to hurry up and read The Ripper's Shadow. And you know I couldn't go a whole post without a dog somewhere so let me present to you Stay Calm and Collie On.  Which reminds me of my favorite line from American Horror this week - "Calm up!! Calm Up!"

What did you add this week???

  12. I do want to read Stalking Jack the Ripper and this new book. Stay Calm and Collie On has such a cute cover! Did you see the book Tomorrow on NetGalley? It has a dog on the cover and is the story of an immortal dog that is over 200 years old. It just sounded like a Barb book to me :)

  13. Spooky books! Mad Hatters and March Hares is tempting me. Enjoy! Thanks for visiting my blog.

  14. I've been seeing that Prince Dracula book everywhere. I have yet to look at its description. I guess I should... Is it sad to say that vampires just don't interest me anymore?

    I hope you enjoy your new lovelies, and thanks for visiting Shell's Stories!

    1. I like my vampires gritty and not sparkly. I try to find books where they are so romanticized and then I can like them better.

  15. Nice haul this week! I see you're loading up on the dark, paranormal and horror books. I also hope to be filling my October with atmospheric reads for the season :)

    1. I adore the covers and I'm hoping they are something like the Shea books I've been enjoying lately.

  21. Nice haul - I love the sound of the vampire book, but then I'm always a pushover for vampire stories. I've read Florence and Giles - it's good, has this gothic vibe and it's based on The Turn of the Screw (I think off the top of my head!).

    1. Yea I heard mention it was based on that book. You know I never knew that book was Gothic horror? Maybe it's a classic I might enjoy.
