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 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.

I was really trying not to request any new titles, but how could I resist the new Diane Chamberlain being a Read Now on Netgalley?? You guessed right, I didn’t. I’ve been meaning to try her work for ages now and this blurb sounds fascinating! Afterwards, my Netgalley wish for Ruthless Gods was actually granted… I never guessed this would happen and I’m SO excited to read this sequel!!! ❤ And I’m also excited to add another 2020 release to my shelf… The blurb of The Silent House sounds absolutely fantastic!

I also saw the new Caroline Mitchell and of course I couldn’t resist clicking that Read It! button… I always enjoy her books, and I’m looking forward to it. I’m also curious to see what the cover will be! Afterwards, I made a promise to myself to stop requesting further titles, but I made the mistake of reading the blurb of Kerry Wilkinson’s newest and there was no way on earth I was going to be able to resist that story. What a premise!

Stacking The Shelves #95 – September 14th

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!

My Netgalley shelf is quickly spinning out of control… Even though I’ve been trying to catch up by reading mostly ARCs in the first two weeks of August. After reading Meggy’s review, I just couldn’t resist getting a copy of Here To Stay… And I never would have guessed my request of The Huntress would actually be approved, but I’m super excited to have this one to read now! I love my WWII historical fiction and I keep hearing fantastic things about this title. The same goes for The Missing Sister, a March 2020 release… I didn’t think my request would actually be approved, but I’m stoked to have it on my kindle as the blurb sounds absolutely fantastic!

I then couldn’t resist adding the two cat related humor books to my shelves as well, both because I love cats and I read one of Francesco Marciuliano’s other titles last year… They were short and fun reads and I already finished both.

Afterwards, Harper Impulse And Killer Reads uploaded a couple of new Read Now titles I just couldn’t resist, and Bookouture added a new title by a favorite author I just HAD to add… Also, I saw a cute 2020 contemporary Read Now I just couldn’t say no to. And somehow I now have a mountain of Netgalley ARCs to read. xD

I think most of you know by now I’m a huge fan of Rachel Amphlett’s books, and Kay Hunter is hands down one of my favorite detective series. I literally squeeled when book number eight landed on my kindle, and now the cover has been revealed I can safely gush about this book. I can’t wait to read this one! ❤

I also couldn’t resist signing up for two blog tours… Especially as I’m joining #Orentober month in the first place and the more Orenda books to celebrate during October, the better, right? ❤

Stacking The Shelves #94 – August 31st

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!

I know I know, I should know better than to enter the Bookouture Netgalley page, because that whole auto-approval business means it’s almost too easy to add new  titles to my shelves. I’ve been trying to resist The Liar’s Sister, but I knew I was going to regret I didn’t read it as soon as those reviews started coming in… So it somehow magically appeared on my shelves. xD Then I saw Cold Fear, and as I really enjoyed the first book of the series last year and I’ve been wanting to read more Nordic noir, I just couldn’t resist hitting that Read Now button. 😉 And then I was invited to read The Lies We Tell and against better judgement I hit that button as I just couldn’t resist a good serial killer story. Whoops?

I also couldn’t resist signing up for three blog tours, one in October, one in November and one recently February next year… The Birthday House is a novella and I really liked the sound of the blurb. Also, I’ve been meaning to try Claire North’s books for ages and The Pursuit Of William Abbey sounds fantastic! I also couldn’t resist The Unlikely Escape Of Uriah Heep even though the blog tour is still months away. I’ll be looking forward to them!

Sooo… What’s the ARC damage during the first three weeks of August? First of all, an auto-approve title I just couldn’t resist after seeing various positive reviews during the blog tour: What You Did. I did already read and review it though, so technically it doesn’t count right? 😉 And I’ve been meaning to read Peter May’s books for ages now as they have been recommended to me multiple times over the years, so of course I couldn’t resist requesting his newest stand-alone.

I was also invited to join a blog tour I just couldn’t resist… I mean, having a DI lead with a serial killer twin brother?! How am I supposed to say no to that? Looking forward to my stop of the blog tour on September 7th. And I literally squeeled and danced around in my living room when I saw the final book of the 4MK series was a Read Now on Netgalley. Of course I couldn’t hit that button fast enough and since I have already finished it anyway (such a brilliant read!!!), it doesn’t count either right? xD ❤ Also, I requested Secrets Of The Mist on a whim as I was looking for a change of genre and both blurb and cover really spoke to me. And then I was invited to read S.K. Tremayne’s newest title The Assistant, and since I loved The Ice Twins And The Fire Child I just couldn’t resist. Whoops! There’s no blurb on Goodreads yet, so I copied the description on Netgalley.
