Stacking the Shelves - March 1st, 2015

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.  It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected.  It's a rather large haul this week.  Most free, but a few purchased.  I want to show you just why I probably don't need to be buying anymore books, which a picture of my bookcase that is just for books I haven't read yet.

That brown bookcase is full of books I haven't read yet.  Every single shelf.  And they are packed into the shelves.  And that's not all.  On my entertainment center in the living room are my ARCs that I'm trying to get read before they are published.  So, you can see why I need to stop getting new books.  But, once again, I failed miserable at that this week.  

Physical ARCs:

The first I got as part of a blog tour I'm going to be participating in.  The 2nd was at the bookstore where I work part time and I got my hands on it last night! So excited to read both of them!

Books won:

I won an autographed copy of the first one from Jessi at Novel Heartbeat.  I've already read it, but loved it, and so glad to have a copy of it!   The other two are books I've heard great things about and I won them from Mary at Bookhounds/BookhoundsYA

Physical books purchased:

The first one is a really cool book that I think I saw featured in Entertainment Weekly magazine awhile back, and I thought as a librarian it would be a good book to have.  Bone Season is one that I've heard a lot about, and I was so excited when I saw it in the bargain section of the bookstore where I work. The hardcover of the book for only $5.98, plus my employee 30% discount, well, I couldn't pass it up.  Same for the last book.  I am a huge Twilight fan, and this was on the bargain table for $9.98, and it was originally $39.99.  I couldn't pass up getting it to add to my collection of all things Twilight, again especially when I factored my 30% off that low price.


The first one is from Netgalley, and the other two are from Edelweiss.  I think I might have figured out a way to save myself on the Netgalley stats.  Not to download them till closer to when I'm going to actually read them. But I will still put them in my little book where I keep track of what egalleys I want to read when.  Maybe that will help?

Free ebooks:

The first one just sounds like a cute, fun read. The 2nd one I downloaded for free as part of an entry into a giveaway on the author's blog.

So, that is what I added to both real and virtual shelves this week. What books joined your collection this week?
