Bookouture has done it again… And somehow I now have not one but three of their newest titles on my kindle. Oops? I’m really excited about all of these though, so I don’t really care. #sorrynotsorry Then I saw Inge’s review of The Map Of Us and even though she wasn’t able to connect to the character and had to give a low rating, I was so curious that I ended up logging into NG and ended up clicking that Read Now button when I saw it. And I’m always looking for new WWII stories, so when I saw My Real Name Is Hanna mentioned and read the blurb, I was sold. A big yes to historical fiction mixed with Ukrainian folklore! The last was a request I didn’t think would come through, but I liked the sound of the story and I’ve been meaning to pick up one of her books… So I guess now I will no matter what haha. That brings the total of new NG titles to six this week. Oops again? Luckily I’ve been reading a lot of ARCs lately, or else my NG shelf would have been over ten titles again. xD

Although it was actually last month, I could not mention it before because the cover had yet to be revealed… But wonderful Rachel Amphlett sent me an ARC of the newest Kay Hunter Gone To Ground, and I can’t wait to catch up with the series. ❤ I have also been sent a copy of A Washington Trilogy I will be reading later this year.

Stacking The Shelves #43 – June 2nd

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 was going to turn this STS post into my Europe trip haul, but the weather has been shitty and I couldn’t get any good pictures… So here are the new NG titles I was approved for during my trip instead. I honestly swear I was going to stay away from NG, but as you already guessed… I didn’t. xD

I saw a tweet about The Date and since I’m a huge fan of Louise Jensen’s thrillers I just HAD to request a copy straight away. I’ve heard a lot about Jo Spain’s thrillers as well, so seeing The Confession mentioned made me want to finally try out her work. The blurb sounds fantastic, so I can’t wait to read that one! I saw To Die In Vienna just as I was actually in the city of Vienna, so of course I had to request a copy to see if I recognize any of the places mentioned. The publisher actually auto-approved me after my request so that was amazing! ❤ The last title intrigued be because of the setting; I don’t read nearly enough stories set in ancient Rome and this one sounded to good to ignore.

Look out for my Europe trip physical copies haul very soon! Hopefully when the weather finally improves so I can take some decent photos… Trust me, I’m missing the European ‘almost summer’ weather. 😉

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?!

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??
