Stacking the Shelves – August 16th, 2015

August 16, 2015 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.  Once again, I got a large pile of books.  And I have to admit that I did buy two of them. But in my defense, one was only a $1, and the other I’d ordered at the bookstore where I work before I’d went on the book buying ban, so I needed to buy it.  Here’s a picture of the pile:



  • Cascade (River of Time #2) by Lisa Tawn Bergren – This is the book I’d already ordered, so I had to go ahead and buy.  I had the first book in the series as a free ebook, and I wanted to read on, so if I’m going to pay for a book, I prefer to have a physical copy.
  • The Witches by Stacy Schiff – This is an ARC I got from the publishers. I  think I requested it through Shelf Awareness.  Didn’t realize quite how thick of a book it was going to be!
  • The Bees by Laline Paull – I won this in the Clean Your Shelves Giveaway from Grace on Books of Love.
  • Chasing Secrets by Gennifer Choldenko – I had to check it out when my egalley expired before I got to read the last fifty pages.
  • This is Where it Ends  by Marieke Nijkamp – This was a surprise from the publisher!!  Very excited to read this one.
  • The White Rose by Amy Ewing and The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa were both successful #booksfortrade on Twitter.
  • Invisibility by Andrea Cremer and David Levithan  – this was my $1 find, so excited!  Found it at the Dollar Store! Can’t wait to read it!

The White Rose was my other must have ARC for the year.  So now I’m trying to stay clear of the #booksfortrade, but sometimes it is hard to do. 


E-galleys:

I got all of these from Edelweiss, and do you see the one in the middle?!  I just featured it as my WOW this past week and then it showed up for review!  Awesome week for egalleys.
So that’s what I got.  What did you get this week?
And while you’re here, be sure to sign up for my September is for Sequels Giveaway Hop, or maybe my September is for Sequels Challenge.

    So glad that the book arrived safely. Looks like it was an amazing week for you as well. Cascade has a really interesting look to it.

    I haven't heard of any of these. That Riders cover is so lovely! I'll have to check these out. Thanks! 😀

    And there's always a good excuse for another book or two, even during a ban . . .

      They don't seem a lot like the books you read. But hey, that's what all the book blogs are for, to cover all the different books! Thanks for visiting!

    RIDERS. Sobbing, basically. I can't wait to find out what you think of it! I am really excited for The White Rose and This is Where it Ends too! Hope you love them all! Also- there is nothing wrong with buying some $1 books- I mean, it's just good financial sense if you ask me 😉 Hope you are having a fabulous week!

      You should go ask for it! I was so excited when I saw it up to ask for. Can't wait for all my books actually. And you're right, if I passed up a book I wanted, a brand new hardcover book, for $1, that would be a bad financial decision. Thanks for stopping by!

    I know you really wanted to try Riders so I hope you do like it! This Is Where It Ends and White Rose are books we have in common! I wanted to try the former because it is a Dutch author and I am living in the Netherlands. I also think the premise of that one is interesting.

    • Lisa Mandina

      Can't wait to get to it either! Oh cool! I'm sure it is neat to find authors where you are living. That's why I was so excited about the Landry Park series, it was written by an author from Kansas City, who also set the story in Kansas City.
