*Stacking the Shelves* 21 April 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. 

Ragnekai Winds by Peter Buckmaster
Gone to Dust by Matt Goldman - I snagged this audiobook as an Audible Daily Deal for just $2.95. I read a sneak peek of this book a while back, and it had me intrigued, so I figured to spring for the audio while it was on sale. 
Greta and the Goblin King by Chloe Jacobs - I snagged this book for just 99 cents (still 99 cents). I think I saw it on another bloggers STS post last week and it sounded so good I just had to have it. 
The MacGruder Brothers Boxed Set by Diana Cosby - I snagged this on sale for $2.99 (no longer on sale). I just couldn't pass up 1500 pages of Scottish Medieval romance for such a low price. 
Blackbird by Anna Carey - I snagged this book for free (no longer free). Not sure where I saw it shared, but probably somewhere on Facebook. 
Catnapped by Susan Golden
An English Visitor by Graham Wilson
The Donkey, The Wolf and the Lion by Nelson King
The Utterly Uninteresting and Unadventurous Tales of Fred, the Vampire Accountant by Drew Hayes - I snagged this audiobook for just $2.95 as an Audible Daily Deal. 
Unexpected Prize by Layla Stone 
How to Date a Nerd by Cassie Mae - I snagged this as a freebie (no longer free) after seeing it on Facebook. I think it was either the Platypire's or the Celebrity Readers that shared the freebie announcement. 
Bit Tab and Trickster: Their Adventures by Dermot O'Hanlon
A Man Who Thinks He Knows Who Really Killed the President by Steven Stosny
Wealthy Healthy Money: and your financial long game by Lillian Meyers
Public Information: Coming of Age During the Korean War by Rolf Margenau
Zachary by Raymond Springer
Empty Men by Alice Ashes
Deadly Voyeur by Mike Hartman
Investing for Non-Finance People by Tero Toivanen
Mindfulness for the Mindless by John Burley
Birthday Girl by Penelope Douglas - Penelope Douglas is one of my automatic one-click authors, so when Birthday Girl dropped, I just had to buy it. 
Unholy Code by Thomas Waite
The Bullet Ship: Living Courageously in a Sea of Fear by Roi Ostrovsky 
San Juan Sunrise by Edward J. Lehner
Dybsy by A.M. Macdonald
A River in Darkness by Masaji Ishikawa - I snagged this book for free from Amazon  as part of their World Book Day celebration. Still free.
The House by the River by Lena Manta - Snagged this book for free from Amazon as part of their World Book Day celebration. Still free. 
Still Waters by Viveca Sten - Another freebie from Amazon for World Book Day. Still free.
The Gray House by Mariam Petrosyan - Another freebie from Amazon for World Book Day. Still free.
The Question of Red by Laksmi Pamuntjak - Amazon World Book Day freebie. Still free.
Ten Women by Marcela Serrano - Amazon World Book Day freebie. Still free.
The Living Dead Boy by Rhiannon Frater - Snagged this as a freebie after seeing it on Facebook somewhere. Still free.
The Secrets of My Life by Caitlyn Jenner - I got this book on sale for $2.99 (no longer on sale).
The Wizard Book by Radu Aldea
If Winter Comes by Ann O'Barr
A Tyranny of Petticoats by Assorted Authors - I had to snag this book after seeing another blogger share it in their STS post for last week. I think it's possible I paid full price at $1.99, and I'm okay with that because it sounds so good.
An Interlude in Berlin by Jefferson Flanders
Bloodreign I: Regnum Ignis - Kingdom of Fire by Marishka Grayson
Growing Up: In, With, and Under Jesus by Peter Berauer
Sleep Paralysis: How I Killed the Demon and Why You Can Too by Brandy Morrow
The Shiva Syndrome Trilogy by Alan Joshua
Praxis Principles of Learning and Teaching Study Guide 2018 – 2019: All-in-One PLT EC, K – 6, 5 – 9, 7 – 12 Exam Prep and Practice Test Questions by Praxis Exam Prep Team
A Bitter Rain by James D. Shipman - I snagged the ebook and audiobook of this for a grand total of $3.98. I know I'm going to want to read this soon, and the audio is probably the only way I can ensure that happens.

So that's all the new books I got last week. It was a pretty massive haul and I'm excited about several of these books, now to find the hours I'll need to read them all.

    1. Goodreads First Reads is the giveaway program on Goodreads. You can find it on the desktop version of Goodreads through the Browse drop-down menu. It's kind of my favorite thing about Goodreads. :) Thanks for stopping by. - Katie
