Soooo… What has been the ARC damage since my last STS post three weeks ago? I’ve been trying not to add any new titles to my Netgalley shelf as I want to take a break from ARCs, but I couldn’t resist getting the new Will Dean when I saw it was a Read Now. I enjoy his writing and it’s not due until April next year, so no immediate pressure either. 😉

Stacking The Shelves #120 – September 26th

Stacking The Shelves is hosted at Tynga’s Reviews and is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

Soooo… What has been the ARC damage since my last STS post two weeks ago? I decided to cut back on my ARCs and blog tours for the rest of the year, as I’ve completely lost focus of my goal of reading mostly my own books… But of course I can never resist completely. xD The Silent Daughter is what I call an ‘oops’ request; a lesson that I should never go browsing NG while still half asleep… I thought I had a different tab open and was requesting the new Helen Fields, but I got this one instead. Whoops? At least it’s a thriller and the blurb does sound good haha. And I was somehow approved for the new Helen Fields stand-alone too, which was unexpected to be honest but I can’t wait to read it.

I also couldn’t resist signing up for the two November Orenda blog tours… I always love the titles by this publisher and I’ve been looking forward to meet up with Varg Veum again. Also, joining the tour for The Coral Bride means I have the perfect excuse to finally read book one next month!

Soooo… What has been the ARC damage since my last STS post four weeks ago? I’ve been trying to stay away from Netgalley and not accept any other ARCs or blog tours because I already have waaay too much on my plate right now… But of course I couldn’t resist clicking that Read Now button for the newest Stillhouse Lake installment coming out next year. I mean, it’s Gwen Proctor we are talking about! I also stumbled across Love Among The Recipes just as I was craving more contemporaries, and I always love a food element incorporated into that genre… So I couldn’t resist getting a copy to read in between my thrillers. Afterwards, I was somehow approved for the newest Wayward Children book against expectations, and I just can’t wait to dive in! I’m loving the series so far. And I just couldn’t resist the invitation to read Mirrorland as I loved the sound of the blurb… It’s due recently in April next year, so no immediate pressure either at least. xD

I also couldn’t resist joining the blog tour for The Nesting; between that cover and the promise of a gothic story, there was just no way I could stay away!

This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

Soooo… What has been the ARC damage since my last STS post three weeks ago? I always love a good serial killer thriller, so of course I couldn’t resist getting Flowers For The Dead. I’ve enjoyed her books in the past, so I will be looking forward to it! I also couldn’t resist getting a copy of the newest Shalini Boland, as I always enjoy her psychological thrillers.

Furthermore, I couldn’t resist adding another audio ARC on Netgalley to listen to while we were painting and prepping our new home for the move… I already finished that one at least, so that’s something right? xD

I also knew I was doomed as soon as I saw the Harlequin Fall blog tour invitations in my inbox… I managed to slightly control myself and ‘only’ sign up for three, but still. xD And I simply couldn’t say no to the blog tour for Orenda title Betrayal, especially since I loved the Reykjavik Noir trilogy by the same author.

Stacking The Shelves #117 – July 25th

Stacking The Shelves is hosted at Tynga’s Reviews and is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

Soooo… What has been the ARC damage since my last STS post two weeks ago? I was absolutely stoked when my request for most anticipated release The Minders was approved! I LOVE John Marrs’ writing and I definitely can’t wait to tackle his newest ASAP. I also couldn’t resist getting the second Detectives Lockhart and Green book as I’ve been meaning to try this series and I would never be able to catch up otherwise. Afterwards, I couldn’t resist the invite to read The Chalet either, so it’s hanging out on my kindle too. Whoops? xD

I also couldn’t resist trying out the new audiobook ARC feature on Netgalley… I picked two Listen Nows as they were already on my most anticipated releases list anyway and I loved the sound of both. I have already finished listening to and reviewing both, so they don’t count right? xD I did get another audiobook afterwards, but I have actually already read The Switch and only wanted to try the audiobook as I heard the narrators were brilliant and I didn’t mind listening to the story again. This makes reviewing it afterwards easy though right?

To make my ARC situation even worse, I of course couldn’t resist signing up for the two September Orenda blog tours even though I probably shouldn’t… Both books sound brilliant though! And I couldn’t resist joining the blog tour for Road Out Of Winter either as the blurb had me hooked. 

Last but not least, I couldn’t say no to Rags Of Time after reading an extract on Eva’s blog. That one is on you! 😉

Soooo… What has been the ARC damage since my last STS post two weeks ago? I couldn’t resist getting a copy of Opium And Absinthe as I really enjoy her books and the blurb sounded fantastic. I have already read and reviewed it, so it doesn’t count right? xD I also couldn’t resist requesting a copy of Remember Me, as I’ve always had a special interest in the Spanish Civil War and the blurb convinced me instantly. And it was coverlove at first sight with The Cry Of The Lake and I hit that read it! button before I realized I probably shouldn’t have. xD I’ve already read and reviewed it too, so it doesn’t count either though right? 

Afterwards, I just HAD to get copies of sequels Echoes Of Guilt and Save Her Soul, as I’ve been enjoying both series and I don’t want to get behind. 

Furthermore, I couldn’t help but signing up for the blog tour of Deadly Vengeance, especially since I loved the first two books and I’ve been looking forward to meet up with the main character again. I’ve already finished it, so yet another one that doesn’t count haha. I also couldn’t resist signing up for the blog tour of The Last To Know… Meggy, this one is all on you! 😉 Last but not least, there was just no way I could resist signing up for the blog tour of most-anticipated release The Night Swim even though I’m already swamped with blog tours in August.

Soooo… What has been the ARC damage since my last STS post two weeks ago? I requested The Heatwave thinking I wouldn’t be approved anyway, so imagine my surprise when I was! I’ve already read and reviewed it, so technically it doesn’t count right? Afterwards, I couldn’t resist requesting a copy of the second Underwater Investigation Unit book as I loved the first one. This is my very first 2021 ARC! I also couldn’t help snatching a copy of The Collector as I loved the sound of the blurb, and joined the blog tour soon after too. I already reviewed that one as well, so it doesn’t count either right? Last but not least, I never on earth would have guessed my request for the new Jodi Picoult would actually be approved… Not that I’m complaining of course haha.

Furthermore, I couldn’t resist signing up for the blog tour for Sight Unseen in August.

This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

Soooo… What has been the ARC damage since my last STS post three weeks ago? I’ve been trying to stay away from Netgalley to avoid requesting, but I just couldn’t help myself clicking that Read Now button when I saw Sorry I Missed You as I really liked the sound of the blurb. I sadly ended up DNFing it… But at least it’s no longer pending and I already reviewed it too, so technically it doesn’t count right? xD

Afterwards, I couldn’t resist joining the blog tour for Before I Die to help out a fellow blogger… I’ve already read and reviewed that one too, so it doesn’t count either right? I also signed up for not one, but two upcoming Orenda blog tours… I love both authors and I can’t wait to read these! 

I also forgot to mention last month that I will be participating in the Masa Crítica Argentina program hosted by Babelio again, and I will receive a physical copy in exchange for a review. This program is the only way I ever get to receive a physical ARC, and I’m so grateful for it! ❤ I’m looking forward to read in Spanish again; I’ve added the blurb in case someone is interested.

Last but not least, fellow blogger Claire asked me if I wanted to read and review her debut, and of course I couldn’t say no. It might take me a little while to get to it, but I’ll be looking forward to it! And I also agreed to review Red Canvas, as I love a good serial killer thriller and the blurb had me intrigued.

This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

Soooo… What has been the ARC damage since my last STS post two weeks ago? Let’s just say that I should be ashamed of my inability to stop getting new ARCs… I couldn’t resist getting a copy of Can I Give My Husband Back? as it sounded like a hilarious read and I needed more of those… I read it already, so that one doesn’t count right? xD Afterwards, I saw the newest Robert Bryndza was a Read Now and hit that button so hard I think my phone broke down haha. I love his books and I’m already looking forward to read the second Kate Marshall book! And I just couldn’t resist getting a copy of Susi Holliday’s newest as the blurb sounded fantastic and I’ve heard nothing but fantastic things about her books.

I also honestly didn’t expect that my request for the newest JP Delaney would be approved at all… Not that I’m complaining of course. xD And I’ve been a fan of Carol Wyer’s books for a while now and have been following the Natalie Ward series since book one, so of course I HAD to get book seven as soon as it was available on Netgalley. Afterwards, I was invited to read Saving Ruby King, and there was just something about this title I couldn’t say no to… Last but not least, I was invited to read Noelle Holten’s third Maggie Jamieson book, and of course I hit that Read It button straight away. 

To make the situation even worse, I also ended up signing up for THREE upcoming blog tours… Whoops? At least they are due in July and late August recently, so still some time to breathe I guess? xD

This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

Soooo… What has been the ARC damage since my last STS post two weeks ago? Of course I couldn’t keep the promise to myself to stop requesting new titles… I mean, who was I kidding when I made that promise in the first place? xD I really liked the police diver angle in The Girl Beneath The Sea, so of course I couldn’t resist requesting a copy. I’ve also been meaning to try Michael Robotham’s books and I also have a copy of the first book, so I thought requesting the sequel would be a perfect excuse to finally read both. I also couldn’t resist the third Amy Winter book as I always enjoy Caroline Mitchell’s writing…

Afterwards, there was just something about the blurb of Good Girl I just couldn’t resist… And even though I don’t read a lot of MG, as soon as I saw the cover of The Republic Of Birds and read it had a Russian folklore element, I just couldn’t pass up. After that, I made the mistake of reading the blurb of I Am The Night (previously published as The Shepherd) and at the mention of two killers, one a detective and one a serial killer, I hit that request button before I could stop myself. Whoops?
