Stacking The Shelves #42 – April 21st

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!

OK, honestly I wasn’t expecting to be getting new titles this close to my trip and hiatus… But since I already finished both no real damage is done right? The first, My Sweet Friend, I actually already read last month and is a very recommendable novella that is currently available in the Read Now section of NG. You can read my full 4,5 star review here. The second, Sky In The Deep, I never ever believed I would actually get approved for, so I might have squeeled a little when I saw that I was. Wonder Woman slash Vikings; how can I say no to that?!

Stacking The Shelves #41 – April 14th

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!

I wasn’t expecting to be getting new titles this close to my trip and hiatus, but I just couldn’t resist these three… The first is a sequel of a new detective series I just couldn’t say no to; the second is the third book of a series I found in the ‘Read Now’ section of NG and my finger hit the button before I even realized it haha. Number three has an element I can’t resist: a book about books. Plus it had a late June deadline and I really need to have some contemporaries ready for when I’m in the mood for one. I’m not sure if I will be able to get to the the first two before I go, but I’m definitely excited to be reading all of them soon!

EDIT: Of course there is no way I could resist DI Robyn Carter’s newest adventure, so book number five The Chosen Ones is of course waiting on my kindle as well (actually about to start it right now). I just didn’t have time yesterday to update my scheduled post before publishing. 😉

 The first addition wasn’t planned, because I never ever expected to actually win a giveaway one day, but somehow I did and on top of that it was for a book in a series I’ve been meaning to read for ages! Thank you dear Meggy, I can’t wait to finally meet Kay Hunter! ❤ ❤ And a huge thank you to the wonderful Rachel Amphlett for not only sending me my giveaway prize, but also offering to add me to her blogger list and give access to the previous books as well. ❤ ❤ Such a wonderful late birthday present!!

Ah, and I ended up requesting a Netgalley title as well. Oops? But that is only because I don’t think I’ve ever read a viking story before, and after the Vikings TV show I’m pretty much obsessed with the culture. Fingers crossed the story will be a good one!

Not only was the wonderful Rachel Amphlett nice enough to host a giveaway for the newest Kay Hunter novel through Meggy’s blog, but she also offered me to join her blogger list after sending my prize! I have been meaning to start this series for ages now, so I’m so excited to be finally doing so soon! Kay Hunter, here I come.

 Some of you probably already know this, but I’m a HUGE fan of the Erika Foster series and I’ve been waiting impatiently for the newest book to arrive. Of course I had to request a copy as soon as it became available, and then drop everything to read it straight away. xD And since I already finished reading it, it doesn’t really count towards my ARC damage right??

It’s a miracle, but I’ve managed to mostly keep the promise to myself to put new requests on hold until after my trip… I know there will be a few exceptions, but I’ve already calculated those in. 😉 No STS post last week, but this week did have some new titles. The first was one of my most anticipated releases and I’ve already read and reviewed it, so no real damage done there haha. Number two is another Bookouture read and a sequel of a series I liked the first book of and wanted to continue. The third is actually translation of a Dutch modern classic I ‘think’ I might have read in the past, and I just couldn’t resist that gorgeous cover and the opportunity to read it in English. Plus, the publish date is far away as well. 😉 And a last-minute fourth edition I really thought I wasn’t get approved for… The blurb of this thriller sounds simply fascinating and I like Pamela Crane’s writing style, so I’m looking forward to it.

Stacking The Shelves #36 – March 3rd

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!

Honestly, I was completely focused on skipping at least one STS post and not get any new titles… But then Bookouture happened, and there was just no way I could NOT request No Safe Place. Especially since I enjoyed the first three books of the series and I’ve been looking forward to see things continue. And I couldn’t resist a personal invite to read and review The Good Twin either… Then again I’m really weak when it comes to a promising (psychological) thriller in the first place haha. Looking forward to these!

NOTE: I won’t be showing this kind of rash behavior with requests for the next few months, because it’s now official… We are going on a month-long trip through Europe! I’m so excited to be country hopping in not even two months… ❤ It does mean It’s All About Books will go on a Eurotrip hiatus from April 23rd to June 1st and I won’t be accepting new requests until after that date unless for those most-anticipated titles I’ve been reserving a spot for. 😉
