*Stacking the Shelves* 26 January 2019


(Titles link to Amazon via Amazon Affiliate links)

Stacking The Shelves is a feature/weekly meme created by Tynga’s Reviews in which you share the books you are adding to your shelves, both physical and virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical stores or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

Now, I already have a monthly post I do featuring the books I get in the mail (and it's a lot because I have a serious Goodreads First Reads giveaway addiction), and I'm posting my monthly Read-A-Thon posts again too, which covers the books I receive through Netgalley. So my STS post will feature all the books I've been one-clicking on Amazon. 

I skipped the past two weeks of STS due to being overwhelmed with work and not feeling like I had the time to build the post, so this is three weeks worth of one-clicks. All Goodreads First Reads ebook wins unless otherwise specified.

Because I Said I Would by Alex Sheen
Little Hands Praying God's Wisdom for Myself by Hope McCardy, Lisa Bastian, and Brooke and Lee
Thanks Obama: My Hopey, Changey White House Years by David Litt - I had some Great on Kindle credit expiring so I used it to buy this book. 
The Five Horsemen by Shawn Raymond Poalillo
On the Brink: A Fresh Lens to Take Your Business to New Heights by Andi Simon
Threshold by J.M. Kaukola
Lucy by Thea Ramsay
Journey to Territory M by L.J. Epps
Absolution by Ellen J. Green
Valentine's Days and Nights by various authors - I snagged this book as a freebie (maybe still free) after seeing it shared by I think Penny Reid either on her page or in her fan group. 
Fulfillment: A Journey Through a Spiritual Life by ICA ICA
The Long Hot Summer by Steven Wilkens
The Simple Soul of Susan by Noel Branham
Death by Dog Show by Arlene Kay
Love, Lucy by Lucille Ball - I snagged this audiobook for just $2.95 as an Audible Daily Deal because I'm a big fan of celebrity memoirs as audiobooks. 
War of the Wilted by Amber Mitchell - I grabbed this book on sale for just 99 cents. I'd been approved for it through Netgalley, but not gotten around to reading it yet, so when I saw it for so cheap, I just bought it. 
Code 47 to BREV Force: CRACKO by F Barish-Stern 
Sherlock Holmes and the 12 Days of Christmas by Roger Riccard
Outcast by Darren Greer
A Merciful Fate by Kendra Elliot
Alice Rackham: Obsession, Death and a British Film Star by F.R. Jameson
The Balance Myth: Rethinking Work-Life Success by Teresa A. Taylor
The Horn Mansion by Brady Ridgway
I'm Here by Christy Chafe
Death Blooms by Yolanda Olson - I snagged this book as a freebie (no longer free) because I'm absolutely in love with the cover. 
Cranberry Bluff by Deborah Garner - I grabbed this book for free (no longer free) after seeing it shared on the author's Facebook page. 
The Voyages of Trueblood Cay by Suanne Laqueur - This is a preorder that went live on Thursday. Even though I'm so behind on reading Laqueur books, I know I'm going to want this one. 
A Thread of Darkness by B.E. Stefanko
Hearts Among Ourselves by A. Happy Umwagarwa
Get Back Up: From the Streets to Microsoft Suites by George A Santino
Speaking in Tungs by Karla M. Jay
A Distant Mirror: The Calamitous 14th Century by Barbara W. Tuchman - I snagged this book on sale for just $1.99 (no longer on sale). I occasionally enjoy reading non-fiction and medieval Europe appeals to me. 
Everything Trump Touches, Dies: A Republican Strategist Gets Real About the Worst President Ever by Rick Wilson - I had Great on Kindle credits that were getting ready to expire, so I used them to splurge on this. 
Wildflower Heart by Grace Greene
Dancing in the Shadows of Love by Judy Croome
Broken Beauty: Piecing Together Lives Shattered by Early-Onset Alzheimer's by Sarah B. Smith
The Social Edge: The Power of Sympathy Groups for Our Health, Wealth and Sustainable Future by Anthony Costello
Feed by Mira Grant - I grabbed this book on sale for just $2.99 (no longer on sale) because it just looks really interesting. 
Silent Holy Knight by Todd Houchin
The Soul of a Team by Tony Dungy
Reign of the Fallen by Sarah Glenn Marsh - I snagged this book on sale for just $2.99 (no longer on sale). I've had my eye on this book for a while so I was excited to see it on sale. 
Hauntings by Various Authors - I snagged this anthology for just $1.99 (no longer on sale). It's been a while since I've read a horror, so hopefully I'll find some time for this soon. 
Ghostly Tales: Spine-Chilling Stories of the Victorian Age by Various Authors - I got this book for just $2.99 (still $2.99). Based on the reviews, the stories aren't particularly scary, but I enjoy historical fiction too so...
The Rise and Fall of Ancient Egypt by Toby A.H. Wilkinson - I snagged this on sale for just $1.99 (no longer on sale). This could be a great resource for a research paper in the future, maybe. 
Happy Doomsday by David Sosnowski - I got this book on sale for just $1.99 (no longer on sale). I'm a big fan of dystopian novels, so this should be right up my alley. 

And that is all the new books I picked up over the past three weeks. Compared to some of my weekly hauls leading up to Christmas, this is kind of pathetic, but it's also good to see that I can slow down sometimes. 

What new books have you added to your shelves recently? - Katie
