Stacking the Shelves July 12th, 2014

July 12, 2014 Stacking the Shelves 22

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.
 It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected.  I’m doing this a day earlier this week than I  normally do because I’m reading a very long book, over 700 pages, and hoping to get it done for a review tomorrow.  And as you may have seen me mention before, I’m not a fan of doing more than one post a day if I can help it.  That’s just me.  

ARC from Publisher:

Now, I received this in the mail directly from the publisher, Random House.  I’m not sure if I requested it through the Shelf Awareness email newsletter, but I don’t remember doing that.  So, not sure if they just sent it to me, which is cool if I’m finally on a publisher’s list to just send ARCs to. 
E-galley from Publisher:
This is one that I know I requested.  The author asked if there was anyone that would like to get on a list with their publisher to get a copy, and I did, because I love the author’s Night Walkers series.  It isn’t coming out until next year, so I need to find out if the publisher wants me to go ahead and review it as soon as I read it, or if the review needs to wait until a month before publishing date, like they often say on Netgalley or Edelweiss.
Free e-books from Amazon:

Okay, the first one, what a beautiful cover, right?!  The 2nd one is by an author that I’ve heard a lot of good things about, so I had to get a copy of it, especially for free, right?

Checked out from bookstore where I work part-time:

One cool perk from the bookstore where I work part-time is that we can check out the hardcover books that have jackets.  So I checked this out earlier this week, and am now actually in the midst of reading it!  It is the book I’m hoping to get done by tomorrow.  I’ve already read over half, but that was two days I think, so by tomorrow hopefully I can get it done!  It’s not hard, I can barely put it down once I pick it up.  Unfortunately life keeps getting in the way, such as my dogs that seem to want to go outside to potty about every hour, and in the hottest hours of the day!

Anyway, what did you add to your shelves this week?

    You got quite a few books that are new to me. They all look really good. Eye Candy has a cute cover. Thanks for visiting me earlier.

    2 am at the cat's pajamas is an awesome title. i certainly caught my attention. and being in a pub's list to send ARCs to is always awesome… even if the stuff they send you are not always ones you're interested in lol

    hope you can stop by my WoW Post.

      Yeah, not sure if I asked for it for the title sounding so interesting or what. Thanks for visiting, and I'll be sure to visit your post as well.

      I totally agree! I just finished it and LOVED it! Glad to see so many others loving it as well! Thanks for stopping by and I'll visit your post as well!

      It is an awesome perk. And I'm so glad that even though I'm seasonal, and haven't worked in a few months, they've still let me check books out and get my discount when I buy books! Thanks for stopping by and I'll check out your post as well.

    Ooo, the cover of Ephemeral is so pretty! I love it! I haven't read anything by that author, but I know she's pretty popular. I won't be reading City of Heavenly Fire… I hope you enjoy it! Happy reading!

    Have a fabulous weekend!

    Check out my STS post!

      I hadn't heard of that author before, but glad to hear you say she is popular. Thanks for stopping by and I'll check out your post as well!

    Cut Me Free looks intriguing. And Eye Candy looks like a light, happy read. I've been reading City of Heavenly Fire for more than a week now and I'm still just halfway through. It's sooo long. And has so many characters (most of whom I've already forgotten since I read the fifth book a long time ago) that it sometimes overwhelms me. I hope I finish it before July ends.

    My STS is here. 🙂

      I think I had a little of the problem when I read book 5 because it had been so long since I'd read book 4, but since I just read book 5 last month, I decided to go ahead and read CoHF, and I got right through it. Good luck with it!

    • Lisa Mandina

      From what I've heard so far about Cut Me Free, it sounds like one to keep your eye out for! I'll have a review as soon as I read it and the publisher says I can post it. Thanks for visiting, and I'll be sure to visit your post as well!
