Stacking the Shelves (166)/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

So first up I got a preorder this week for my Kindle and I'm super excited.  I've been waiting for "Atticus" for over a month.  Now if the Dogs Days of Summer Challenge just hurries up and arrives, I'll be set (not like I wasn't set anyway).  Isn't that cover too cute???

The next three were free.  I couldn't resist "Destroyer of the Planets" because come on, tentacles!  I'm not going to lie, "Outcast" was a total cover grab and when I saw a free book from Crystal Lake Publishing, "Tales of the Lake Vol. 2" I had to make sure I got it.



And lastly a few review copies.  "'Twas the Knife Before Christmas" is the second installment of a Christmas cozy I fell in love with last year.  "A Tale of Two Murders" sounds like a good Victorian mystery and "The Death and Life of Eleanor Parker"  looks like an interesting thriller.


So what did you add this week and are you looking forward to reading any of these???

  1. Atticus is very cute! I can see why the cover grabbed you! My reading isn't going anywhere at the moment so I might need to start planning a few themes to get me moving!

    1. I'm gearing up to let my pups pick my Dog Days of Summer Challenge. Wonder if they will chose Atticus. I may have trouble getting them to chose ebooks so each ebook choice will have a dog toy representative.

  15. That is a very cute cover. I was just looking at a Tale of Two Murders. I don't read a lot of historical fiction/mysteries, but that one does look interesting. Happy reading!

    1. If I read historical books, they need to have a paranormal or supernatural element. Have a great week and thanks for stopping by.
