Stacking the Shelves July 12th, 2014

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?
