Oh yes, yet another week and another failed attempt to stop the incoming flow of ARCs… That said, both The Familiars and We Told Six Lies were actually older requests coming through and both 2019 releases at that, so not too bad considering right? xD

Of course it didn’t stop there and I just couldn’t resist The Winter Sister when I was sent a personal invitation to read it yesterday and I saw one of my favorite thriller writers Megan Miranda recommended it. I’m so stoked to be having a copy waiting for me on my kindle! Thankfully it’s a 2019 release though, so I have some breathing space before I have to read it.

I was thinking I could finally skip a STS post, but I guess it wasn’t meant to be. I guess the whole ‘tie my hands behind my back’ thing didn’t work out… xD Although I did add the Read Now title Little Darlings since last week, it’s a later 2019 release so no added pressure this year. And Daughters Of The Lake is an older request that was just recently approved (and due soon, that’s why I had to change my plans and read this one instead.)

I was then invited to read How To Experience Death For Beginners… While I’m already swamped with reviews, there was just something about the title and blurb that I couldn’t resist. The fact that it’s due recently in February 2019 sealed the deal for me and I decided to make an exception and say yes. Another little something to look forward to next year!

Stacking The Shelves #65 – November 3rd

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!

Forgive me, because I have been bad. REAL bad. Again. I know, I know, I’m never going to get my NG shelves cleared out this way, but I just couldn’t help myself… And somehow my pending NG shelf has grown over 20 titles now. Whoopsies!

As I already said last week, of course I requested the new Carol Wyer as soon as I heard it was on NG… And that is not the only time Bookouture was able to tempt me, because of course I had to request the newest Josie Quinn as well. Gotta love new installments of favorite series. ❤ A couple of older requests came through this week as well, and a crochet Read Now I just HAD to check out because I have a weak spot for anything black & white. And I honestly thought my Isaac Marion request would never be approved, but I guess I was wrong. xD Thankfully three of these are later 2019 releases (April-May), so that gives me at least a little breathing space.

I know, I know, I wasn’t going to request any new titles, but I just couldn’t resist this bookish graphic novel… I’ve actually already read and reviewed it, so it doesn’t really count right? 😉

I know, I know, I wasn’t going to request any new titles, but I fell in love with the cover of The Cottingley Fairies and since it’s both a picture book and a 2019 release, no real damage is done during this year right?

Forgive me, because I’ve been bad. xD Let’s see the damage below, shall we?

Bookouture has done it again and made me disregard my promise to stop requesting new Netgalley titles completely. I admit there were even more I wanted to request, but I kept it at three. So I guess it could have been worse? xD I was stoked to see all three below approved… The third Detective Anna Gwynne book (Before She Falls) I’ve been looking forward to because I really like her personality and the cold case angle of the series. Of course I couldn’t resist a new Shalini Boland either… And while the third title might seem to be some mistake (me, reading a contemporary romance, and a Christmas themed one at that???), I liked the blurb and wanted to read something completely different than the usual. Here’s me going out of my comfort zone!

The fourth title I just couldn’t resist, because it both promised a setting in Spain and references to the Franco era. As a Spanish philologist, how can I say no to that?! Plus, I’m always trying to read more international authors/ translations, so technically I’m just following that goal right? 😉 The last one I couldn’t resist because I love gardening and have a few of the plants mentioned in my garden as well… I always love finding out little tricks to take better care of them.

I was doing well not requesting any new titles until the new K.L. Slater appeared on Netgalley. Impossible to resist of course, and I’m stoked to have it waiting for me to be read on my kindle next month.An older request also came through, and one I’m absolutely thrilled about. Not only is the cover gorgeous, but I’m fascinated by the blurb. Although anything set in Spain in general will do, having a story set in one of my favorite cities of the country, and a historical setting at that… Talk about a perfect fit for me! I will most definitely be looking forward to read this one in the future. (It’s a 2019 release, so it will probably be a while before I will pick it up…)
