Stacking the Shelves - September 28th, 2014 - The one where I get Blue Lily, Lily Blue


Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews. It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected.  And this week, well let me say that earlier this week, I had a moment like the new iPhone 6 commercial where the women all scream so high pitched they make the glass break.  Finally, finally, I got my ARC of Blue Lily, Lily Blue.



I got it at work, that's where almost always have things shipped to me anymore because I know they will actually arrive.  And it was during a very busy time in the library, and there was no one really to share my excitement with, so I was doing the above inside my head.  If you've seen my last few STS posts, you know how badly I wanted this book.

E-galleys:





The first one was from Netgalley, the middle was from Edelweiss.  The third one I was so excited to see that I clicked request before I realized it was just the first 5 chapters in a sampler.  I don't like to read samplers.  I like to wait and read the whole thing at once.  Don't know if there will be a full blown e-galley available, or any ARCs, as this is the final book in a trilogy, and often they don't do them for that one.  So I have it, but I probably won't read it.  Will wait till I can get the whole thing.

Free Nook Books:








These were all part of a set.

Free Amazon e-books:

They both sounded good, and as I said, free.  I really think I need to come up with a challenge for next year to read some of these free books I've downloaded.  If you know of anyone that already hosts something like this, something different than just a TBR challenge, let me know!

  2. I didn't realize they were sending out arcs of Blu Lily, Lily Blue. I totally understand why you are very excited. I won my copy from Maggie. I squealed too, but mine was out loud. I got Dear Rock star too. I really need to read more of my freebies.

    1. I didn't think they were either, other than the ones that Maggie had. But when I was not approved for the egalley on Netgalley, I emailed and asked for it. And they sent it. Thanks for visiting!

  4. I hadn't even heard of most of these, I feel pretty disappointed when I notice a book up on Netgalley and then it ends up being a chapter sampler, because I don't like reading samplers either :-(

  6. Yeah I stared at Ensnared for like five minutes trying to debate if I wanted to get it. I decided that I couldn't handle the tease (hence why I'm not reading Orphan Queen...at least not yet).

    I like all these fantasy retellings, I'll have to make my way over to BN.com.

    1. Yeah, now I feel bad that I've requested it. Hope they don't get upset when I don't really review it. Guess I could post why I'm not reviewing it in the space provided on Netgalley. Thanks for stopping by, and I hope all the retellings are good, they were free!

  7. Fun books! I download a lot of free books too. Sometimes I read them. You just never know what you're going to get with a free book!

    1. Yeah, now I must figure out a challenge for next year, and see if I get anyone to join in! Otherwise they may sit on my Nook forever, and ever, and ever, and ever....

  9. You lucky duck! I hope you enjoy Blue Lily, Lily Blue! And it's a shame about Ensnared! I really don't like reading chapter samplers either and I can understand you're excitement at first when seeing the book (I have a bit of an obsession with the series).
    I hope you enjoy all your books!

  10. Yay for Blue Lily, Lily Blue! <3 I think I've read about it somewhere and it does sound totally awesome. :) Bummer that Ensnared is only a sample - hope they'll put the full ARC soon! Unlovely has such lovely cover - totally opposite of the title haha.

    Happy reading! :)

    1. I could sit and look at Supernatural gifs all day!! I was denied the review copy on Netgalley but emailed and basically begged them to either reconsider or send me an ARC. And I was rewarded! Thanks for visiting!

  12. YAY BLUE LILY, LILY BLUE! I got an egalley last week and screamed in excitement. It's gonna be so goooooood! I don't read samplers either. It just gets you all excited for something you can't completely read!

    I hope you've having a wonderful week!
