*Stacking the Shelves* 10 March 2018

(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. (All Goodreads ebook wins unless otherwise noted.)

Jackson and Franklin by Shawn Sprague
Resilient Health: How to Thrive in Our Toxic World by Valencia Porter MD MPH
Kat and Maus by Brad Chisholm and Claire Kim
Perdido Street Station by China Mieville - I snagged this book on sale for $1.99 (maybe still on sale) because my brother highly recommends it. 
Fallen Heir by Erin Watt - I got this beauty on sale for 99 cents (maybe still on sale) because I already own most of the other books in the series...I haven't read them yet, but I own them. 
Marathon Renegade by Dr. Kirk Mahoney
Dagobert Goes to the Dentist by Jean-Paul Colemonts
Beauty and the Vampire by Zoey Hunter
Falco the Dark Angel by Randall Moore
Modern Day Fables by Jason Petersen and Aarti Patel 
Boys South of the Mason Dixon by Abbi Glines - Snagged this book for free (maybe still free) after seeing a sponsored post for it on Facebook. 
Prodigal Girl by Emma Wright
Veronica and the Volcano by Geoffrey Cook
Softlife by James R. Hardin
Never Surrender: How to Overcome Life's Greatest Challenges by Joseph B. George
Crystal Secrets by James Funfer
Verbs that Move Mountains edited by Claire Trevien
Code Girls: The Untold Story of the American Women Code Breakers of WWII by Liza Mundy - I got this audiobook as the Audible Daily Deal for just $4.95. After recently finishing listening to Hidden Figures about the African American women who helped us win the space race (whose jobs mostly started with work on airplanes during WWII), I'm interested to learn about these women who I previously didn't know existed as well. 
Return of the First by M.A. Maggiano 
The Caretaker's Legacy by Michael Villa
There is a Generation II: Kids of the Greatest Generation by WH Buzzard

So that's all the books that I bought or won this past week. Next week's post will probably be a bit longer as it includes the middle of the month when there are usually more giveaways ending. 

What new books did you add to your shelves this week? - Katie

  1. I have the first 3 in the Royals series by Erin Watt, and plan on starting it tonight I think. I didn't snag this one b/c the reviews didn't look as good, and I wanted to see if I at least liked the first book. :P

    1. Yeah...a part of me thinks I should at least read the first book before buying more...but another part of me isn't sure if "more" will ever be on sale again after I find them, so I go ahead and risk it. And I've heard great things about the series in general, so I probably need to read them, right? - Katie

    2. Yeah, I struggle with that too. I don't want to miss out just in case. And I'm always worried I'll be the one person who doesn't like them. But I started Paper Princess and love it so far!

    1. At this point it would feel wrong for me NOT to add a whole bunch of new books to my shelf each week. I feel like I'd be letting everyone who counts on me having huge book hauls to make them feel better about the number of new books they're getting down if I didn't...and I wouldn't want to do that.

      Thanks for stopping by. - Katie

  3. Whoa, you have a lot of books. Beauty and the Vampire sounds like it would be good. Enjoy you books!

    1. Yes, yes I do. As I struggle to get my house unpacked after our recent move, I'm realizing again just how many books I have (102 boxes). But at least I'll never run out of reading material.

      Thanks for stopping by. - Katie

  4. Well I'm glad to hear you're back in your house now. Not having power for an extended period of time is definitely no fun. Good luck getting caught up! - Katie

  5. Oh, the Amazon-one-clicking experience... been there, done that just before checking out your blog post.
