Stacking the Shelves (131)/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

This week a little retail therapy was in order.  Still looking for a used vehicle and not having the best luck - but I will soldier on.  It could be so much worse.  I did grab 4 books for my Kindle.  Several were fairly cheap and I've wanted "Devils & Thieves" ever since I first saw it.  "Behold" is one I've had my eye on for a while and was planning on ordering a physical copy but when I saw it for $2.99 as a Countdown Deal I went ahead and grabbed it.  I had to have "Gisele" and "Sins of our Father," both part of the Witches of Auburn series I read and reviewed earlier this week so I got them too #noapologies.


Next I grabbed a couple of books I saw being offered for free.  "Some Dark Holler" sounded pretty interesting and I know I've seen "Bleed" somewhere before.  "The Vampire Skeleton" and "Corpses Say the Darndest Things" both caught me attention and since they were free, I couldn't help but click.


Finally, Netgalley struck again.  Stormi was talking to me about "Alone" and how her friend wanted her to read it to hear her thoughts so I couldn't resist #StormiMadeMeDoIt.  "The Hunger" is a book I first saw mention of over at Books Bones & Buffy and it is about the infamous Donner Party and witches so I was thrilled when I snagged an early copy #TammyMadeMeDoIt.  "Deja Moo" is part of an on-going series and really, who can resist that title, and "The Ripper's Hellbroth" - hello!  Jack the Ripper reference.  Someone I'm almost as fascinated with as Lizzie Borden.  


So as you can see, I'm still in Halloween mode and I am thrilled to get to all of these eventually.  Stormi - you know you need to grab "The Ripper's Hellbroth."

What did you guys grab this week???

  3. Ohh, since you grabbed Devils and Thieves for your kindle maybe I can borrow it some time. I have been curious about that one but not sure if it was for me. ;) I went and wished for The Ripper's Hellbroth so I guess its up to them to grant my wish or not. :) I also want The Hunger!!

  5. Since I have only two more NetGalley books to read, both released in November, I am vulnerable to the urge to browse there!

    Enjoy your haul...I am curious about Alone.

  6. Oh no. You've got some good ones. I swore I wouldn't go crazy this month, but....it's horror month. LOL Oh well, that's what I'll blame it on anyway. I hope you enjoy Behold. It was fun.

  7. I hope you find a good used car soon so you can put that behind you. I really really really hate car shopping. It's hard to pass up those Kindle deals. One of the daily deals today has been on my wish list for awhile. Even though I was planning on going with the paperback version, I decided to go with the e-copy instead. Deja Moo! I loved the first book in the series. I need to read the second soon.

    I hope you have a great week, Barb. Enjoy your new books!

  9. Tammy from Books, Bones and Buffy also turned me onto The Hunger, though I'm trying as hard as I can to resist requesting! Maybe I'll listen to the audio when it comes out though, the premise does sound amazing.

  12. Deja Moo...what a great title that is! I only grabbed a few books but I can't seem to get motivated to read anything at the moment! I always look forward to October but it hasn't been great so far!

    1. Congrats. Wish I could show more restraint.

  14. I laugh because you blame Stormi and she blames you. However for Alone you can both blame me! I would LOVE to see what you think. I need to talk to people about it. I still haven't written my review because I need to write it with spoiler and I am not sure I want to do that or not. lol

    You will have to let me know how The Ripper book is, I do love Jack! :)

    Have a great week, Barb! Happy Reading! ox

  17. You added some great books this week. I read 1 chapter of Devils & Thieves last week but got distracted so my goal is to finish that one this week. I am quite tempted by Alone as well. Enjoy!
