*Stacking the Shelves* 16 June 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 First Reads ebook wins unless otherwise specified.

An Endless Love by Jason R. Hemmings
True Son by J.T. Holden
Surviving Amelia by Naomi Rand
Take Off Your Shoes by Ben Feder
Ordinary Magic by Cameron Powell - I snagged this as a freebie (no longer free). I'm not sure where I saw it advertised though. 
House of Bathory by Linda Lafferty - I snagged this on sale for just 99 cents (no longer on sale) when I saw it as a Kindle Daily Deal because it just sounds really interesting to me.

Happily Ever Summer by Carly Morgan and RaShelle Workman - I snagged this as a freebie (no longer free) after seeing it shared by the Celebrity Readers (I I'm 99% sure on this one).

So that's all the books I added to my Amazon library this week. What new books have you added to your shelves recently? - Katie

    1. I agree. That was one I was really hoping to win.

      Thanks for stopping by. - Katie

  2. Haven't heard of these. When do you manage to read this many :D
    Have a great week!

    1. Um, I don't manage to read this many books. In fact, considering the severely limited number of Goodreads Giveaways hosted every day now that they've started charging for them, I'm surprised that I win this many books. I like have a wide variety of books to choose from though, and this helps with that.

      Thanks for stopping by. - Katie

  3. Each time I visit your blog I hear of the first reads giveaway, whereabouts on Goodreads do you find these?

    Would love to live in a boat, but I suppose it's not so fun if it's a necessity, you've been there awhile now. I'd love to hear how it is livinf in a boat.

    1. Oh man, I forgot that I updated my STS intro about being a displaced person with my things packed up on a boat...I was at no point living on a boat...we were moving back to the states from Germany so all my stuff was on a boat in transit. And before we bought a house (which we did back in February) my kids and I were living with my parents, but that was a temporary situation.

      You can find the Goodreads first reads giveaways on the Goodreads website (you've got to be on the desktop version to find them, you can't access them through the app). The browse button along the top menu has a dropdown menu where you will find the giveaways option. Click it and you're there.

      Thanks for stopping by. - Katie

  4. Whoa! Lots of great books you got here! Dark Pleasures sounds really good!

    Here’s my Stacking the Shelves!

  5. WOW! Isn't that one-click so deliciously dangerous?? Enjoy your new treasures!

    1. It is...although this list is largely Goodreads wins and not the result of one-clicking...and most of the one-clicking was freebies, so it was at least a cheap week for me. Thanks for stopping by. - Katie

  6. Wow! Lots of new books this week. I couldn't imagine having all of my stuff in storage. I guess ebooks make sense right now. Have a great week!

    1. I'm actually finally getting most of my stuff unpacked (and didn't realize that I hadn't changed my intro to STS to reflect that). Things are still all out of sorts in my house though.

      Thanks for stopping by. - Katie

  7. Bwahahaha -- you got it all right this time!! Woop woop!!

    1. Yay, for once my memory didn't lead me astray! Thanks for stopping by. - Katie
