*Stacking the Shelves* 30 December 2017

(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. And since I am currently technically a displaced person (all my things are packed up on a boat and I don't have a home to call my own at the moment), I'm not currently buying any physical books. So my STS post will feature all the books I've been one-clicking on Amazon. 

On that note, here are the books I picked up this week.

Mama Day by Gloria Naylor - I one-clicked this book on sale for $1.99 (it appears to be $1.49 now). I'm just really intrigued by the blurb. 
Daughters of the Night Sky by Aimie K. Runyan - This was my Kindle First (except it's got a new name and I can't remember it right now) selection for December. If you are an Amazon Prime member and haven't already gotten your free Kindle First book for December, this is one of the options and you have two days to take advantage. 
The Autobiography of Santa Claus by Jeff Guinn - I got this audiobook on sale for $2.95 as the Audible Daily Deal a few days ago. I figured it'd be good to have handy for next year's 12 Books of Christmas reading challenge. 
The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee - This book has been all over the blogosphere on all sorts of peoples lists that I've been checking out, so when I saw it on sale for $2.99, I had to buy it. (No longer on sale.)
The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli - This is another book I've seen all over the place, so I really want to read it. It was also on sale for $2.99 at the time of purchase. (No longer on sale.)
The Christmas Train by David Baldacci - I snagged this audiobook as the Audible Daily Deal for just $3.95. I own a physical copy of it already, but this gives me a greater chance of getting it read since I can listen while baking or cleaning. 
The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill - I snagged this on sale for $1.99 (no longer on sale). I just found the blurb intriguing so I need to read the book, at some point. 
Seraphina by Rachel Hartman - I received a $5 off a Kindle book promotion thing from Amazon that expires on the 1st, so I used that to splurge on Seraphina. I read a sneak peek of this book from Netgalley and really wanted to read more, so this was a great time to buy it. 
Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones - I managed to get this book on sale for just $2.99 (no longer on sale). I've wanted to read this book pretty much since it released (I think), so finding it on sale was awesome. 
Resolve by Carla Susan Smith - I won a copy of this book through the Goodreads First Reads giveaway program. It appears that one of the changes they're making is that ebook copies can be gifted as ARCs prior to release to still generate reviews for release day (I can leave a review right now even though the book hasn't released yet). It used to be ebooks giveaways couldn't end before release day. 
An Island Christmas by Nancy Thayer - I snagged this beauty for just $3.99 on sale (still on sale) because it'll be good for next years 12 Books of Christmas reading challenge. 
Otherworld by Jason Segel and Kirsten Miller - I got this on sale for $2.99 (still on sale). The cover is gorgeous and the blurb sounds good. 
A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab - I snagged this on sale for $4.99 (still on sale). I've heard a lot of good things about this series and so I've been interested in getting it for a while now. This seemed like a great time to start. 

So that's all the books I picked up this week. It's a bigger list than last week, but still fairly tame for me. 

What new pretties have you added to your shelves this week? - Katie

  3. Seraphina and The Girl Who Drank the Moon are ones I'd love to read :) a great haul this time!
    Have a brilliant start to 2018 :)
