*Stacking the Shelves* 31 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 specified.*

Satyr's Son by Lucinda Brant
Lord I Surrender by Dr. Esther Ula Cofer
Hell's Princess by Harold Schechter - This was my Kindle First selection for March. 
The Waking Land by Callie Bates - Snagged this on sale for $1.99 (still on sale). This book originally snagged my attention because my Facebook wife suggested I write a fake review on my other blog, Whose Review Is It Anyway, for it. And I just love the cover. 
Croaked by T.E. Antonino
He's Gone Now What? by Gregg Michaelsen
Lifeline by Abbey Nash
Betrayal of Blood by Franca Ogbonnaya
Choosing the Strong Path by Fred Bartlit, Steven Droullard, and Marni Boppart ScD
Times Square by Rich Walls
The Fifth Doll by Charlie N. Holmberg - I snagged this audiobook for $2.95 as an Audible Daily Deal. I have a thing for matryoshka dolls, so the cover called to. 
The Chemist by Stephenie Meyer - I snagged this on sale for $3.99 (no longer on sale). I've heard good things about this book. 
The Black Witch by Laurie Forest - I snagged this on sale for $1.99 (no longer on sale). The title really appealed to me and I'm a fan of fantasy novels in general. 
The Hills Report by Shawn Sprague 
Molar Pregnancy: 70+ Questions Answered by Lydia Kariuki
Breadcrumbs by Francis J. Shaw
Home Life Around the World by Anita Martinez Baijer
Can Job by Kirsten Mortensen
The Roving Mind by Anthony Simola
The Moon Shines Red by Pamela Sparkman
My Dear Hamilton by Stephanie Dray
Wait With Me by Amy Daws - So hype really works on me, and this book has gotten TONS of it. Brief backstory, the author wrote the entire book in a tire store and that story kind of blew up on social media. 
The Rival Queens: Catherine de' Medici, Her Daughter Marguerite de Valois, and the Betrayal that Ignited a Kingdom by Nancy Goldstone - I snagged this on sale for $2.99 (no longer on sale). I really enjoy reading about kings and queens in history. 
The Nightingale Murder by Leena Lehtolainen
Gunning for Angels by C. Mack Lewis
The Immigrant Wife by Madhu Bazaz Wangu
To Wed in Scandal by Liana Lefey - I snagged this for just 99 cents because I was eligible for a $3 promotion from Amazon for the purchase of a book from a limited selection. 
Casimir Bridge by Darren Beyer
Devil's Run by AR Simmons
Get Glad: Your Practical Guide to a Happier Life by Harry Hoover 
The Last Plane by Robert Hirzer
Through Fisher's Eyes by Paul Nelson
The Assembly of Thirteen: The First Two Companions by Omayra Velez
Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson - I snagged this audiobook for just $2.95 as an Audible Daily Deal. My son has started getting interested in listening to audiobooks, so I'm trying to expand the suitable selections in my audio library to accommodate that. 
For a Pint of Mother's Milk by Avishek Sahu
Shanghai Fools by Vann Chow
Memorizing Pharmacology by Tony Guerra
Zeus is Dead by Michael G. Munz
The Interpretation of the Second Seal by Clive Richards
Run Away by Adnan Arduman
Be Careful What You Joust For by Ryan Hauge and Ivy Smoak

So that's all the new books I added to my Kindle this past week (or you know, just my Amazon library because my Kindles would be getting mighty full if every book went straight to one. What new books have you added to your shelves this past week. - Katie 

*If you're stopping by from the linkup, please be sure to leave a link to your post below so I can stop by and see all your new pretties.*


  1. I got Wait With Me too! As an ARC, but still! :)

    1. I can't be trusted with ARCs (I have conclusively proven), and I don't typically gravitate towards contemporary romance, but that book has just been all over so I had to grab it. - Katie

  2. You always get so many books! The only one I’ve read is Treasure Island. I think it would make a good audiobook. Enjoy your new books and have a great week!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. It's got a full cast for the production too, so more like listening to a movie probably. Thanks for stopping by. - Katie

  3. WOW, you are like me with the Kindle books. I get so many - I lose track. I put them in there tho and hopefully can read them one day. I am overloaded tho. Happy reading!

    Mary my #SundayRoundup #12!

  4. That's a ton of books. :) Love that story about Wait With Me!

  5. Your hauls are so dangerous. I always find at least one or two I "need" to add. I have both The Black Witch and The Chemist but story of my life...haven't read them yet!

  6. Have fun reading those :) I can't believe you win so many :D

  7. How do you skyrocket your book sales without a bigger platform, email list, paid traffic, or PR?

    It starts by understanding how your readers buy books today, and how you can reach them (without a huge marketing budget).

    I've found something that can show you how.

    Bestseller Ranking Pro provides authors and publishers with live data on every single bestseller list on Amazon for eBooks

    and physical books (all 19,669 of them and counting), as well as advanced video trainings on how to maximize your sales and

    sales rankings on Amazon.

    Check it out here:

    If you haven't met Tom Corson-Knowles yet, the author who created Bestseller Ranking Pro, I think you'll find his story


    Like most authors who have been in the game for years, the only signs of interest Tom got from publishers were rejection

    letters. After six years of trying to get a traditional publishing deal, he finally decided to self publish his first book on

    Kindle in February, 2012.

    It was a life-changing decision.

    Just twelve months after publishing that first book, he had his first $12,000+ month from Kindle ebook royalties alone!

    You can learn how in this video. These strategies have also helped him and his clients become #1 Amazon bestselling authors.
