Stacking the Shelves August 31st, 2013

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.  It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected.  Haven't done one of these in two weeks as I've had a little bit of a dry spell with books.  But I've got a couple to share this week!  

From the Library:

As you probably know, I've already read and reviewed BZRK, since I was able to get the sequel from Netgalley.  The second one, Darkness Falls, is the 2nd in a series that I've read the first one, and I got the 3rd one at BEA last summer and haven't read yet because I didn't have this one yet.


I'd been seeing some things about the first one, PODs, on other blogs, and saw it wasn't too expensive in the database at the bookstore where I work part time, so I ordered it in.  The second one, The Hatfields and The McCoys, was on our bargain tables at the bookstore for like $6 or $7, and I've become a bit obsessed with learning more about that whole feud since the History Channel mini-series.

YA Book Exchange Trade:

Yes, I was able to get an e-galley of this, but when I saw an ARC of it available on the YA Book Exchange, I had to try for it in order that I could have a copy of this that matched my ARC of the first one.  Plus I will be getting to see the author, Maggie Stiefvater in September when she comes to my town again as part of the publicity tour for this book.


The first and third books are from Netgalley, the middle one is a title from Edelweiss.  Last Night at the Viper Room intrigues me because I was such a huge fan of River Phoenix and it was so sad when he died of a drug overdose.  When Cory Monteith recently died, it brought back some of those memories of that time for me.  The difference being that I was so young and naive, and things weren't as out in the open back with River, so I didn't realize he was on drugs till then.   And everyone knew that Cory had been to rehab and had a problem.

Free for my Kindle App:

All of these I found through a fellow bloggers post on Facebook.  The first two sound like pretty good stories, and for free, hey!  I've been wanting a smoothie recipe book for awhile, but I'm never sure which one I want, so getting one for free was awesome!

And I have to share the one non-book item I got, although it is a bookmark:

Guess I got more than I thought!  How about you?  What did you add to your shelves this week?  I know that I'm working on straightening up my 2nd bedroom where all my bookshelves are, and once I get that done, I'll do a tour of the shelves for you!
