Stacking the Shelves (123) / Sunday Post

Stacking the Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves or TBR piles, may it be physical or virtual.  This means you can include books you buy in a physical store, online, books you borrow from the library or friends, review books, gifts and of course, ebooks! The original meme was started over at Tynga's Reviews. And it now has a new co-host where individuals can link up as well - Marlene from Reading Reality.  Clicking on the book (or title) should take you to the Goodreads page.  I'm also now linking up with the Sunday Post which is hosted by Kimberly@Caffeinated Book ReviewerI'm hoping to discover some new blogs to love.

I actually only have a small digital haul this week.  I am planning on grabbing a few new releases for my Kindle soon but am waiting to see if the price drops any in the near future.  I saw Hunter Shea announce on Twitter Thursday a new book up at Kindle (it may be a re-release, not sure) but I immediately had to go grab "Forest of Shadows" - $3.99 be damned!  I also picked up "A Bark in the Night" which is a new series called The Talking Dog Detective Agency.





I also received a few books for review.  I LOVE gargoyles and couldn't resist "The Atwelle Confession" when I saw it was a mystery prompted by the positioning of gargoyles in an ancient church.  I featured "Walking with Peety" and "Saving Sadie" on Can't Wait Wednesday features before so I'm thrilled to be approved.  Guess it's fitting for my Dog Days of Summer Challenge this month that I also grab some new dog books (like I need more!).



What did you guys add to your shelves this week???

  1. Looks like you're prepared for the Dog Days of Summer challenge! And I became intrigued as soon as I saw "The Talking Dog Detective Agency"...interesting series name, wonder what it's all about!

  2. I decided my Deep Blue Terror was a good excuse to grab a few shark and sea monster things for the tbr! I'll be getting them read quickly so I don't mind this one tiny splurge. I've been a good Chuckles for a whole month with limited book buying! No surprise to see you getting some dog books!

  4. That Shea book looks good so I put it on my wishlist since I don't have any book money right now. :( I want to Gargoyle one too!

  8. I am so tempted by the Peety book. I also saw the Sadie book but I think it might make me hate people and adopt more dogs. I hope you enjoy all of your new reads.

    1. What's wrong with adopting more dogs? If I had more space, we'd have more for sure!

    2. Well...we already have the maximum number of dogs allowed by the county that I live in so I should probably stop. I am sometimes tempted but worry that the county could make me give them up if someone complained.

    1. I'm buddy reading it next month so hopefully soon I'll have it all figured out. I pretty much grabbed it because it was horror and by Hunter Shea.

  11. I keep seeing Hunter Shea pop up on various blogs, I'm going to have to check him out one of these days.

    1. I kind of compare his writing to b-horror movies. Lots of blood, gore and fun but nothing to take too seriously. I highly recommend the novella Just Add Water as a starting point.

  12. I might have bought one or two... but no review copies (thankfully!), as I was away on vacation, far from all that temptation :D

  13. Waiting for a price drop sounds like a good call to me! I do that, too. Hope you had a great day! *pets all the pretty reads*
