So I haven’t been behaving too bad when it comes to new ARCs, although I did forget to mention last week I received an ARC of Bright Burning Stars for the blog tour I signed up for a while ago. Due May 17th, so thankfully I’ll have some spare time before the deadline arrives…

I was also invited by the author to read I Know You and while I have a superbusy schedule already I just couldn’t resist that blurb. Whoops? Then I saw two more titles I couldn’t resist and hit that request button before I could stop myself… And guess what? I was approved as well. Afterwards I just HAD to request the new Dee MacDonald as well because I absolutely adored The Getaway Girls last year. So of course I’m at 20 pending titles again. xD

Stacking The Shelves #78 – March 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 doing well not requesting new titles, but then an older request came through as well as a new auto-approval of the same publisher! There was just something about Fat Angie: Rebel Girl Revolution that made me want to read it, and while I didn’t realize it was actually a sequel, I was keeping fingers crossed it can be read as a stand-alone. Sadly I ended up DNFing it though.

I also couldn’t resist the new Lottie Parker book… Plus, since I’m up to date with the series it’s only logical to want to read the next one early and not fall behind, right? xD I requested the new Josie Quinn book for the same reasons, but that one is still pending so far. EDIT: my request was actually approved today so I’m adding it to this haul. 😉

And I’ve seen The Fever King around and it sounds really good (plus, that cover! ❤ ), so of course I had to hit that request button even though I should know better. Especially since it was released yesterday and it means yet another book I need to read no matter what in March. xD

I also completely forgot to mention I won a giveaway recently on Twitter! The lovely @sdavreads had a 2019 contemporary romance giveaway close to Valentine’s Day and I can’t believe I actually won!! ❤ ❤ The first book I could think of was the upcoming release The Boy Who Steals Houses, and she was so kind so place a preorder for me. ❤ I can’t wait for it to be April and finally read this one!

I thought I was going to be able to have an ARC haul free week, but clearly that wasn’t going to happen. xD Of course I had to request a copy of the new Carol Wyer as soon as I saw it appear on Netgalley… And after seeing so many people raving about Thirteen, I literally hit that Read Now button so hard I nearly broke my laptop. Yes, you read that right; last time I checked it’s still a Read Now on Netgalley! I didn’t remember before I got my copy it was actually the fourth book of a series, but I’ve been assured it works really well as a stand-alone as well. Fingers crossed!

I was also approved for Middlegame by Seanan McGuire. I had the request pending for months, so I honestly didn’t expect it to be approved anymore. I love her Wayward Children series, so I’m looking forward to try her adult fiction! I also couldn’t resist a new Nathan Ripley. I really enjoyed Find You In The Dark last year, so clicking that Read Now button for Your Life Is Mine was really easy. 😉

I literally jumped and did a happy dance right in the middle of my living room when I saw one of my most anticipated 2019 releases was available as a Read Now on Netgalley. I LOVED the first two books and both have been full 5 star ratings for me, so I’m having high hopes I will be adding another 5 star read to my 2019 favorites list very soon. It’s due recently in April, but there is no way I will be waiting THAT long to read it… Can you tell I’m really excited about this one?? ❤ ❤ ❤

I know, I know, I was supposed to stay away from Netgalley and not request any new titles until my pending shelf was below 10, but when I saw Caroline Mitchell’s newest was up I couldn’t resist. Yay for more DI Amy Winter! I also couldn’t resist the second title and added it to my shelves before I could think about the consequences. xD I’m looking forward to read both though.

I swear I wasn’t going to request any new titles for a while, but somehow the cover of Smoke And Key managed to put me under a spell and made me hit that request button again. Whoops?? I do love the sound of this story though.

I was doing quite well not requesting any new titles until an older request came through… The blurb and setting sound fascinating though, so I’m not sorry. 😉 I was also approved for Colombiano, a story close to my heart as I’ve always had a special interest in the war on drugs and the setting sounds fascinating. What I didn’t check before is that the story has 800+ pages… Whoops? Fingers crossed it will be worth it though!

I also needed something a little different for a future break from thrillers and historical fiction books, and there was just something about the contemporary romance title Mona Lisas And Little White Lies that caught my eye. I saw the fact that it’s due to be published on my birthday as a sign. 😉 Fingers crossed it’s a good one! And another approval with a fascinating blurb (The Victim), and thankfully recently due in August because I have way too may ARCs already. xD

I was also invited for the blogtour for The Pumilio Child and just couldn’t resist. A historical fiction meets thriller with an international setting? Yes please! And blog tour number two for the Nordic Noir translation The Courier by Kjell Ola Dahl; both are due in March… This story sounds fantastic and I can’t wait to read it!
