*Stacking the Shelves* 5 January 2019

(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. 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.

The Librarian of Auschwitz by Antonio Iturbe - I snagged this book on sale for just $2.99 (no longer on sale) while it was a Kindle Daily Deal. If you've followed my blog at all, you should know by now that I'm a bit obsessed with all things WWII, so getting this book was an obvious for me. 
Legendary by Stephanie Garber - I grabbed this book on sale for just $2.99 (no longer on sale). This book and Caraval are all over the blogosphere as being amazing books, so I know I probably need to read them. Getting this on sale is just a bonus. 
Rebel Preview by various authors - I grabbed this for free (still free). I'm not sure exactly where on Facebook I saw it because I'm FB friends with two of the contributing authors, and I know they are both tight with the Celebrity Readers and ladies at Platypire Reviews, so there's at least four different places I may have seen this shared. 
The Paris Seamstress by Natasha Lester - I got this book on sale for just $1.99 (no longer on sale). It's another book set during WWII, so when I saw it, I knew I needed to buy it. 
How Long 'Til Black Future Month by N.K. Jemisin - I grabbed this book on sale for $4.99 (no longer on sale). I'd recently seen a comment somewhere about this author comparing her to Octavia Butler for some reason (I don't even remember what now, but it was very shortly before I saw this book on sale). And while I haven't read any of the Octavia Butler books that I've one-clicked yet, those recommendations came from a trusted source so I figured I'd give this author a try as well, and the premise of the book intrigued me. 
Dear Evan Hansen by Val Emmich, Steven Levenson, Benj Pasek, and Justin Paul - I grabbed this book on sale for $2.99 (no longer on sale). I'd gotten this book through Netgalley as a "read now" and haven't had the time to read it yet, so when I saw it was on sale, I decided to buy it. 
Stray Magic by Kelly Meding
Jeffrey Gitomer's Sales Manifesto by Jeffrey Gitomer
Mouth Care Comes Clean by Ellie Phillips DDS
Haroun and the Sea of Stories by Salman Rushdie - I grabbed this audiobook on sale for just $1.95 as an Audible Daily Deal. It looks like it might be a good audiobook to listen to on car rides with the kids. 
Zero G by Dan Wells - I grabbed this audiobook as one of my free Audible Originals for being an Audible member. It definitely looks like a good audiobook to listen to with the kids in the car. 
New Family Values by Andrew Solomon - This was my second free Audible Originals pick for last month. I choose it simply because it was one of the longer audiobooks available in the selection and it appealed to me more than the Alien book. 
Adulting: How to Become a Grown-Up in 468 Easy(ish) Steps by Kelly Williams Brown - I got this book on sale for just $2.99 (still on sale). It actually ended up being free for me because I also had Great on Kindle credit available and it's a Great on Kindle book. As I'm 35 now, and still don't feel like an adult, I figure maybe it's time to figure this whole adulting thing out. 
Urgent Justice by John Etzil 
The New Race: The Old Versus the New by Dermot O'Hanlon
Too Much Soul: The Journey of an Asian Southern Belle by Cindy Wilson 
Alex Was Here by Christopher Francis
The British Frontline by Thomas J Eyre
The Snow Gypsy by Lyndsay Jayne Ashford - I grabbed this as one of my two free Kindle First Reads books for January (and yes, I've already made my selections for the month. You should be shocked by that). 
Smoke and Summons by Charlie N. Holmberg - This was my second free Kindle First Reads selection for January. Literally none of the other books available really appealed to me at all. 
Snowfall on Lighthouse Lane by JoAnn Ross - I grabbed this book on sale for just $1.99 (no longer on sale). Guys, I found another Christmas book on sale after Christmas! Do you have any idea how excited I was by this?
Outer Red: Part 2: The Three Little Peggs by Jeff Walker
A Beautiful Poison by Lydia Kang - I grabbed this book on sale for just $1.99 (no longer on sale). I'm pretty sure I've seen this book around the blogosphere a fair amount (or maybe I'm just confusing the cover with another one, I don't know for sure). 
The House With a Clock in Its Walls by John Bellairs - I grabbed this audiobook on sale for just $1.95 as an Audible Daily Deal. I know this would be a good audiobook to listen to while the kids are around. 

So that's all the new books I picked up over this past week. What new books have you added to your shelves recently? - Katie

  1. I haven't read any of these books.
    Happy new year and have a great week !

  2. I've heard great things about Caraval as well, but those books never go on sale in Canada... I LOVED the Dear Evan Hansen musical on Broadway, so I'm excited for you to read that. Though, it won't be even half as good, b/c the music...

    And Rebel Preview was probably us...I think it's usually free, but I'm not sure.

    And I'm kind of excited for you finding another Christmas book on sale. ;)

  3. The Garber books have definitely had me interested too, with all the hype, but I haven't taken the plunge yet.

  4. You always seem to find the best books on sale. Hope you find some real gems in this haul!
