Soooo… What has been the ARC damage since my last STS post two weeks ago? I requested The Heatwave thinking I wouldn’t be approved anyway, so imagine my surprise when I was! I’ve already read and reviewed it, so technically it doesn’t count right? Afterwards, I couldn’t resist requesting a copy of the second Underwater Investigation Unit book as I loved the first one. This is my very first 2021 ARC! I also couldn’t help snatching a copy of The Collector as I loved the sound of the blurb, and joined the blog tour soon after too. I already reviewed that one as well, so it doesn’t count either right? Last but not least, I never on earth would have guessed my request for the new Jodi Picoult would actually be approved… Not that I’m complaining of course haha.

Furthermore, I couldn’t resist signing up for the blog tour for Sight Unseen in August.

Stacking The Shelves #114 – June 13th

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 three weeks ago? I’ve been trying to stay away from Netgalley to avoid requesting, but I just couldn’t help myself clicking that Read Now button when I saw Sorry I Missed You as I really liked the sound of the blurb. I sadly ended up DNFing it… But at least it’s no longer pending and I already reviewed it too, so technically it doesn’t count right? xD

Afterwards, I couldn’t resist joining the blog tour for Before I Die to help out a fellow blogger… I’ve already read and reviewed that one too, so it doesn’t count either right? I also signed up for not one, but two upcoming Orenda blog tours… I love both authors and I can’t wait to read these! 

I also forgot to mention last month that I will be participating in the Masa Crítica Argentina program hosted by Babelio again, and I will receive a physical copy in exchange for a review. This program is the only way I ever get to receive a physical ARC, and I’m so grateful for it! ❤ I’m looking forward to read in Spanish again; I’ve added the blurb in case someone is interested.

Last but not least, fellow blogger Claire asked me if I wanted to read and review her debut, and of course I couldn’t say no. It might take me a little while to get to it, but I’ll be looking forward to it! And I also agreed to review Red Canvas, as I love a good serial killer thriller and the blurb had me intrigued.

Stacking The Shelves #113 – May 23rd

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 two weeks ago? Let’s just say that I should be ashamed of my inability to stop getting new ARCs… I couldn’t resist getting a copy of Can I Give My Husband Back? as it sounded like a hilarious read and I needed more of those… I read it already, so that one doesn’t count right? xD Afterwards, I saw the newest Robert Bryndza was a Read Now and hit that button so hard I think my phone broke down haha. I love his books and I’m already looking forward to read the second Kate Marshall book! And I just couldn’t resist getting a copy of Susi Holliday’s newest as the blurb sounded fantastic and I’ve heard nothing but fantastic things about her books.

I also honestly didn’t expect that my request for the newest JP Delaney would be approved at all… Not that I’m complaining of course. xD And I’ve been a fan of Carol Wyer’s books for a while now and have been following the Natalie Ward series since book one, so of course I HAD to get book seven as soon as it was available on Netgalley. Afterwards, I was invited to read Saving Ruby King, and there was just something about this title I couldn’t say no to… Last but not least, I was invited to read Noelle Holten’s third Maggie Jamieson book, and of course I hit that Read It button straight away. 

To make the situation even worse, I also ended up signing up for THREE upcoming blog tours… Whoops? At least they are due in July and late August recently, so still some time to breathe I guess? xD

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 two weeks ago? Of course I couldn’t keep the promise to myself to stop requesting new titles… I mean, who was I kidding when I made that promise in the first place? xD I really liked the police diver angle in The Girl Beneath The Sea, so of course I couldn’t resist requesting a copy. I’ve also been meaning to try Michael Robotham’s books and I also have a copy of the first book, so I thought requesting the sequel would be a perfect excuse to finally read both. I also couldn’t resist the third Amy Winter book as I always enjoy Caroline Mitchell’s writing…

Afterwards, there was just something about the blurb of Good Girl I just couldn’t resist… And even though I don’t read a lot of MG, as soon as I saw the cover of The Republic Of Birds and read it had a Russian folklore element, I just couldn’t pass up. After that, I made the mistake of reading the blurb of I Am The Night (previously published as The Shepherd) and at the mention of two killers, one a detective and one a serial killer, I hit that request button before I could stop myself. Whoops?

Soooo… What has been the ARC damage since my last STS post two weeks ago? Of course I couldn’t keep the promise to myself to stop requesting new titles for a while… I’ve been in the mood to read contemporaries lately, and I just couldn’t resist hitting that request button when I read the blurb of Swipe Right. For the same reason I couldn’t resist requesting a copy of How To Save A Life, especially as the blurb sounded intriguing. Afterwards, an old request came through (I honestly didn’t think I would be approved); I’m looking forward to read The Catch!

I also made the ‘mistake’ of opening a blog tour invite email for five upcoming Park Row Harlequin titles in the next few months, and somehow I ended up signing up for four out of five titles. Whoops? They are recently in June, July and August though, so not that much immediate pressure at least I guess. xD

Soooo… What has been the ARC damage since my last STS post last week? I should have known getting my pending NG shelf below five would be mission impossible… First, I received a widget and blog tour invite for This Is How I Lied I just couldn’t resist (in fact, there were 5 widgets and 5 blog tour invites, but I managed to control myself and allowed myself to only pick one xD). Afterwards, I received another widget from the author (J.D. Barker) for a new collab book with James Patterson I just couldn’t say no to either. I love his work and I’ll be looking forward to read this one during the winter! I also couldn’t resist getting a copy of Broken Branches as I’ve heard good things about it… And I received another widget for Lobizona as I signed up for the blog tour a while back and my stop was confirmed a few days ago.

Soooo… What has been the ARC damage since my last STS post two weeks ago? I guess I’ve been bad again… There were some NG titles I just couldn’t resist, and those include Emily Carpenter and K.L. Slater’s newest books. I was also over the moon to be approved for one of my most anticipated 2020 releases: the new Eddie Flynn! Guess who is going to do an Eddie Flynn series binge-read in May? So far for getting that pending NG ARC number below 5 again… xD

I also couldn’t resist joining up for two May Orenda blog tours; I’m excited to finally try Helen Fitzgerald’s work and The Creak On The Stairs is all on Eva and Kelly! Yes, I blame you both for wanting to read that one. 😉 And I also signed up for the blog tour for the new Kay Hunter, Turn To Dust, in July, but as there is no cover or blurb yet I’ve not mentioned it below. I’m so excited to meet up with one of my favorite detectives again though! ❤

Let’s keep talking books to have something positive to look forward to in these strange and dark times… Argentina is under obligatory quarantine now too; you can only go outside to buy essentials and will be fined when caught breaking the quarantine for no reason. Or that is what they said was going to happen starting yesterday, but (at least where I live) people still don’t seem to get it… Sigh. I’ve been self isolating since Monday though; I only went outside the bare minimum to stock up and now I’m staying at home in the hope things will become better soon. It might have been a crappy and pretty lonely birthday on Thursday, but better safe than sorry! Stay safe and well everyone. ❤

Soooo… What has been the ARC damage since my last STS post two weeks ago? Not too bad overall, but I just couldn’t ignore the widget for Stacey Halls’ newest story The Lost Orphan (also known as The Foundling)… And I’ve been following Josie Quinn since book one, so of course I couldn’t resist getting book number eight as I don’t want to fall behind either. I also won an e-ARC of The Waiting Rooms on Twitter; the giveaway hosted by the wonderful Karen from Orenda Books. ❤ It definitely sounds like an on point read in these strange times!

Soooo… What has been the ARC damage since my last STS post last week? I guess I haven’t been behaving lately, as I have a couple of new ARCs now added to my pile. First of all a NG approval: The Silence (first published as The Six last year), which I’m superexcited about although I honestly didn’t realize it was the same title back when I requested it (I just thought the blurb sounded fantastic). xD

Then three April blog tours I just couldn’t say no to… Louise Beech is one of my favorite writers so of course I screamed yes as soon as the blog tour invite arrived! I really enjoyed my first experience with Kjell Ola Dahl’s work too last year, so that was another no-brainer. And I’ve been meaning to read Rachel Abbott for so long now, so I thought the blog tour would be the perfect excuse to finally do so.

Soooo… What has been the ARC damage since my last STS post two weeks ago? I’ve been behaving pretty good, although there were a few titles I just couldn’t say no to. First of all I couldn’t resist that Read It! button for a new K.L. Slater title. I love her books and didn’t get to try this story last year as it was audiobook only and I’m not a fan of those… I’m happy they decided to release a kindle/physical version now! I also couldn’t say no to a second Jane Phillips book as I really loved the first last year… (The blurb wasn’t on Goodreads yet so I’ve added the description as on Netgalley below.) The same goes for Mark Edwards’ newest; Here To Stay was on my list of favorites last year and there was no way on earth I was going to say no to reading The House Guest early. ❤
