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.

Purchased:





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.

E-galleys:







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!

  13. Lots of great books! Last Night at the Viper Room sounds really good even though I sadly don't know who River Phoenix is. I do know who Cory was and it was very sad when he died. Love that bookmark :)
