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.

I know, I know, I was going to stay away from Netgalley and take a break from ARCs, but I couldn’t resist browsing after posting a review and not without consequence. I blame the auto-approve button! 😉 I have loved Samantha Hayes’ books in the past, so I’m looking forward to read Date Night; the blurb sounds fascinating! And I’ve been meaning to try Teresa Driscoll’s books for a long time now, so I couldn’t resist the opportunity to read her newest.

I also forgot to mention last week that Anne Cater invited me to the blog tour of Blood Song, and I literally squeeled when I saw the email! I’ve been wanting to read the series ever since I first started seeing those raving reviews for the first book… (I finally read Block 46 a few days ago!) I’m looking forward to read Keeper next month and then dive into Blood Song for the blog tour in September. ❤

I’ve heard so many great things about Katherine Arden’s books and I was just saying to myself last week that I needed to try and read a few more MG stories this year when I saw Small Places was a Read Now on Netgalley during 24 hours last Saturday.  Of course I didn’t resist, and even though it turned out to be a protected PDF ARC, I still had a great time reading it. (I posted my review yesterday if you want to know more.)

And of course I couldn’t resist hitting that Read It! button as soon as I saw the next Josie Quinn and Natalie Ward were available on Netgalley. I love both series and I can’t wait to read Her Silent Cry and The Sleepover! I blame Bookouture for auto-approving me. xD

And then I just had to click that Read Now button as well when I saw Amanda Lovelace’s newest poetry bundle was available on Netgalley. I always enjoy her poems, so I’ll be looking forward to discover if this bundle is another winner. (It’s another protected PDF ARC though in case you are wondering.)

I know I said I was taking a break from ARCs this season, but I love discovering new international authors and AmazonCrossing always seems to tempt me with their titles. Thankfully, Dark Mother Earth is a January 2020 release, so I’ll still have plenty of free time before I need to get to it.

And then I saw Trance, saw that John Marrs recommended it and it was an auto-approve title, and I hit that Read It! button before I could help myself. Whoops! xD I’m excited to be reading it this month though. Also, I was curious about Along The Broken Bay and I was sold as soon as I read the blurb and saw it was WWII historical fiction with a setting in the Philippines. How on earth would I be able to resist that??!! You guessed right; I didnt. xD

I know I said I was taking a break from ARCs this season, but some titles I cannot help but making an exception for. There is just no way on earth I’m going to resist a new K.L. Slater title on Netgalley…. Bookouture, I’m blaming you! I’m so so SO excited to have this one on my kindle! ❤
