*Stacking the Shelves* 23 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.

Mooseletoe by Tiffinie Helmer - I snagged this as a freebie (no longer free). I think it was shared on the Celebrity Readers Facebook page, but I'm not 100% sure on that. 
The Christmas Cottage by Samantha Chase - I got this book on sale for $1.99 (it's still only $2.51 right now) because Christmas and I didn't own it yet. And even though I know I'm going to fail to achieve Santa status in the 12 Books of Christmas reading challenge I'm hosting this year, this book may come in handy next year. 
The Girl From Venice by Martin Cruz-Smith - I snagged this on sale for just $1.99 (no longer on sale). It was a Kindle daily deal this past week and it's set during WWII, which as you should all know by now is an era I find highly fascinating. 
The Largesse of the Sea Maiden by Denis Johnson - I won an ebook copy of this book through the Goodreads First Reads giveaway program. 
Holidays on Ice by David Sedaris - This audiobook was the audible daily deal yesterday and I was able to get it for just $2.95. I may manage to squeeze one more holiday read in this year through this book, but probably not because I have a lot of proofreading to do right now. 

And that's it. That's all the ebooks and audiobooks I picked up this week. Once again, I spent very little time on a computer (because my desktop is in a box, in a container, on it's way to a boat to take a trip across the Atlantic ocean right now, and I don't like using my laptop all that much) and had three days this week where I didn't have much time online at all because we had our router disconnected so it didn't accidentally get packed up (it has to be returned to the internet company before we leave). So for anyone not paying attention, the key to me not having a massive book haul is to not be able to go to the thrift store and not spend much time on the computer. 

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

  1. The Christmas Cottage sounds lovely. Enjoy your holidays...and being able to unpack things after the move.


  2. Ah, so moving is the key to control! ;) And I don't think it was us for Mooseletoe, but maybe I missed someone CC posted?

  3. All your books sound interesting and perfect holiday reads I guess? Enjoy your holidays.. Merry Christmas :)

    My STS:

  4. So a small haul for a change :) I guess you are moving very fast then, huh. I also did a very small haul this week! Only 1 book, can you believe it :) and no ARCs!
    Have GREAT holidays :)

  5. Woah, a short haul this week! Good for you. I also had a small haul this week, but that's probably for the better since I'll probably have a haul from Christmas. I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

    Happy holidays! Have a wonderful week, Katie. =)
