Stacking the Shelves - June 23, 2013


Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews. So far so good with my goal of keeping up this summer! So, let's see, this week I did okay.  Got a couple books in the mail, approved for one from Netgalley, and two from my sister in NYC.

From Netgalley:


Just love that cover, and it sounds like a great book!

Won in contests:






Now actually, I only got the first book of the two that you see above, but what is so cool. about it, is that it is the UK version of the book you see on the right.  So I thought that was kind of cool.  I won this book from EM Castellan in the Best Book Ever Giveaway Hop.


I also won Envy by Gregg Olsen from Jenn Renee Read in the Shower of Books Giveaway Hop.

Books from my sister in NYC:




I'm always a book behind with the Sookie Stackhouse books because I refused to buy them in hardcoveer when I'd only had them in the small paperback.  But, being kinda poor this summer, I gave in and asked to borrow my sister's hardcover.  Unlike me, she doesn't want to wait, and so usually buys them when they come out.  And then she bought The Great Gatsby, and I asked to borrow it now that I've seen the movie I wanted to compare.

So, I think that's a pretty good haul for the week!  How about you, what new books did you get this week?

  1. I can't wait for Tumble & Fall! It sounds so good. I have yet to see the Great Gatsby movie or read the book. I've heard great things about both of them though. I hope you enjoy everything!

    1. Yeah, the cover is so neat, but I wasn't sure if it was my type till I read the blurb on it. Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I've been debating about going back to the Charlaine Harris series but I didn't care for the first one. Great haul.

    1. Really? That's too bad. I loved the first one, and was glad the tv show stayed pretty true to it. Now the tv show is a completely different entity, but I still love it! Thanks for stopping by.

    1. Oh believe me, I have books from BEA 2012 that I still haven't read! It just seems that I get new ones that I want to read more, or that I have e-galleys that have to be read by a certain date, and they're still sitting there. Thanks for stopping by!
