Stacking The Shelves #105 – January 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 last week? I’ve been behaving mostly, although I couldn’t resist getting a new title on Netgalley and there were also two Orenda blog tours I just couldn’t say no to. I was already planning to catch up with Lori Anderson in February, so joining the blog tour for book four is only extra motivation to do just so! And I’ve been meaning to try Simone Buchholz for ages and have the first two books already waiting on my kindle, so the blog tour is a perfect excuse to simply binge-read all three before my stop of the tour in March.

Soooo… What has been the ARC damage since my last STS post three weeks ago? I’ve been trying to stay away from Netgalley and work through my pile of pending ARCs, but some titles I just can’t resist… And that of course includes the newest installment of the Wayward Children series, which I literally devoured the same day my request was approved. Likewise, I couldn’t resist J.D. Barker’s newest title as the 4MK trilogy is one of my all time favorites and I love his writing. It’s a huge one with almost 800 pages, but I’m ready for it! And as I’m a big fan of Dot Hutchison’s The Collector books, I couldn’t resist getting the first book of her newest series either. Also, I never in a million years would have guessed my request for The Boy From The Woods would actually be approved… Not that I’m complaining! xD

And of course I said yes to joining the blog tour for most anticipated release Beast as soon as the email hit my inbox! After being blown away by the first three books and them appearing on my list of 2019 favorites, there was no way I was going to say no to gushing about book four during the tour.

Soooo… What has been the ARC damage since my last STS post three weeks ago? I’ve been trying to stay away from Netgalley and work through my pile of pending ARCs, but some titles I just can’t resist… And that of course includes C.L. Taylor’s newest. I honestly didn’t think my request would be approved, so I’m stoked to have Strangers hanging out on my kindle now!

Also, after rediscovering my love for Nordic Noir this year, of course I couldn’t say no to a blog tour invite for Thomas Enger’s newest Death Deserved. The blurb sounds fantastic as well. The blog tour is in February recently, so still some breathing space left too. 😉

Stacking The Shelves #102 – December 7th

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 over a month ago? First up is The Missing Letters Of Mrs Bright, a title I just couldn’t resist after reading a blurb and seeing it being compared to A Man Called Ove and Eleanor Oliphant. I also couldn’t resist requesting Claire Allan’s newest as I really like her books… I wasn’t expecting to be approved to be honest, but I’m not complaining I now have a copy on my kindle. 😉 Afterwards, I was invited to read The Rules Of Murder, and as I loved my first encounter with Dani Stephens I just couldn’t say no…

Of course I had to click that Read Now button as soon as I saw Bitter Falls; how could I not add the newest installment of one of my favorite serial killer thrillers?! ❤ Afterwards, I was invited to read Mandy Robotham’s newest WWII historical fiction story, and I just couldn’t resist saying yes even though I’m already way in over my head with ARCs… And how could I resist requesting the first book of Robert Bryndza’s newest series?! Erika Foster is one of my absolute favorite detective leads, so I can’t wait to see how I’ll react to Kate Marshall. Afterwards, I promised myself to stop requesting ARCs for a while, but of course the moment I do so Amy Harmon’s newest title becomes available, and there is just no way on earth I’m going to resist one of my top most anticipated 2020 releases. I literally squeeled when I saw it was up on Netgalley!! ❤

I also entered the Masa Crítica Argentina program through Babelio again and was granted a physical ARC of Rocco Hachasedienta! I love the Vikings TV show and any story about vikings really, and I really enjoyed this story as well… I’m definitely grateful for this program, as it’s basically the only way for me to ever receive a physical ARC.

And I just couldn’t resist the temptation and signed up for the January 2020 blog tours of two of my Orenda most-anticipated 2020 titles… After Breakers and Exquisite, my expectations are definitely high for both books! I can’t wait to read them. ❤ I also couldn’t resist signing up for a third blog tour as the blurb just sounded too good and I don’t read nearly enough YA thrillers in the first place.

TOTAL ARC damage: 11 new titles in total, with 2 titles already read and reviewed and 8 out of 9 remaining titles due either December or January. Whoops?! xD

I know I’m taking a break from ARCs, but some titles are just impossible to resist… And of course the minute I decide to take a break, a new K.L. Slater becomes available on Netgalley. Soon after, I saw the second Cady Maddix book was a Read Now, and as I loved the first book last year I just couldn’t resist adding it to my shelf as well. And I honestly didn’t think my request for the new Jo Spain was going to be approved, but I’m not complaining it’s now hanging out on my kindle. 😉

Afterwards, I just couldn’t resist snatching an ARC of Deadly Silence after reading Meggy’s review… Best decision ever! ❤ I’ve already read and reviewed it, so it doesn’t count right? xD A few days later, I made the mistake of reading the blurb of Snakes And Ladders… Not one, but TWO serial killers and a profiler as a main lead?! How can I resist that, especially with that Read It! button right below?! You guessed right, I didn’t. xD Then Bookouture struck again and uploaded a new installment of one of my favorite detective series… I loved the first six books, so of course I HAVE to read book seven as well.

Oh yes, I’m still not keeping the promise to myself to stop adding new titles to my Netgalley shelf. I’m trying to limit myself, but some authors I just can’t resist… Especially if it’s a new book of a series I’ve been enjoying, which is what happened when I saw the fifth Natalie Ward book was available on Netgalley. Whoops? The Pursuit Of William Abbey is actually for a November blog tour I signed up for a while ago though and recently received the Netgalley widget for. So that one doesn’t really count right?

Oh yes, I’m still not keeping the promise to myself to stop adding new titles to my Netgalley shelf… That said, The Body In The Garden is recently due in April 2020, so plenty of time to read it still I guess. xD I love the sound of the blurb! I also couldn’t resist requesting the Feverwake sequel The Electric Heir, and I was stoked when I saw my request was actually approved. Due recently in March 2020, so at least no immediate pressure haha.
