*Stacking the Shelves* 3 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. 

So I missed the last three weeks of Stacking the Shelves, I was just too busy with other things to get my posts built, so this week I'm playing catch up. On that note, here are the books I've gotten in the past four weeks (all Goodreads wins unless otherwise specified, and I'm already regretting not doing the last three STS posts on time).

And that is ALL the ebooks that I've gotten over the past four weeks. 

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

*If you're stopping by from the linkup, and you made it all this way, drop links to up to four of your posts and I'll show them all some love.*


  1. Wow that's a lot of books! I'll have to check out Infected: Will You Survive the Zombie Apocalypse? That sounds fun. :)

    1. Yeah, that's one of the books I'm most excited to find the time to read it.

      Thanks for stopping by. - Katie

  2. DUDE!!!! That is NUTS!!! King Sized Beds was definitely us, but I don't think the other one was...I've never heard of it. And I totally got Scenes from the Hallway last week too! I need to catch up on my Penny Reid reads (I like saying that).

    1. I'm never missing an STS post again. I think it took me like five hours to get this post built total. I really need to start adding books each day as I get the notifications about winning them.

      And I'm super behind on Penny Reid reads. There are just not enough hours in the week. - Katie

    2. ROFL, right? I should do the same, but I'll never remember. :P

      And I'm wish you on needing more hours in the week for reading in general, and all I do is read!!

  3. Wow! If I got that many books, my shelves would probably collapse and kill me. :)

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. Well the good news is that these are all ebooks. Since Goodreads opened up ebook giveaways to the masses, I've been winning a buttload of them.

      Thanks for stopping by. - Katie

  4. WOW, that is a mega load of books! I get a lot of ebooks so I can really stack my shelves! I am riding out the storm that took out our power at a friends. So surreal looking at all the downed trees and power lines cut in half. They say we won't have power to our area till Wednesday!! Have a good Sunday!

    Mary #SundayRoundup #8

  5. What a stack! I'm sure you've snagged some really good ones here.

  6. Wow, you are the Goodreads First guru! My kindle is already on overload from my previous click happy moment. Enjoy your books!

  7. Whoa! Happy that my book (The Wanderer and the New West) made the list! Hope you enjoy it.
