Welcome to Stacking the Shelves. Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga at Tynga’s Reviews. This is where we showcase books we have received or bought during the week.
This week I got some books for review and screwed up on requesting one so I had to make a purchase even though I had no intention of buying any books this week. Just teaches you to do your research before you hit that button. I accidentally requested book two of a series and didn’t know it and now I need to read book one so I can review book two. I was hoping I would be declined, but alas, no.
Anyway, so this is what I got this week and a couple of them I am really excited about.
Demon Lover (Fairwick Chronicles #1) by Juliet Dark
Why: Because I am an idiot and requested the book’s sequel, The Water Witch, without checking to see if it was a sequel. It’s my own fault. I got approved so now I have to read this one before I read book two. That will teach me to double check in the future before I hit that button. It’s got some pretty decent reviews though so I am okay with this!
The Water Witch (Fairwick Chronicles #2) by Juliet Dark
Why: Now this is the book I requested. The blurb is awesome. I only hope I like book two enough to get to this one. Also, the cover. That cover is gorgeous.
Chantress by Amy Butler Greenfield
Why: Is this a standalone? Because if it is? WOOOOOOT. How often does that happen? This book sounds awesome. I was so lucky to have my request approved. Also, since everyone is guessing about what she is holding in her hand, here’s mine: it’s a freaking rock. The end.
The Paradise Guest House by Ellen Sussman
Why: Another book to Bali? I am there. What did I tell you about books set anywhere in Asian countries? Also, I have read this author before. And I loved the book I read. This was a must request for me.
Also Known As by Robin Benway
Why: I loved Audrey, Wait. So I know I like this author’s writing style. I was a little iffy about the blurb but the author was enough to make me request it. I am always on the lookout for a contemporary novel I will enjoy.
If You Find Me by Emily Murdoch
Why: I think this one is a contemporary, but I am not sure. Either way, the blurb is mysterious and I feel like there is going to be a lot of creep factor with this one. I wanted to read it as soon as I saw it on someone’s blog. Good news? It’s fairly short. Everything seems to be over 300 pages lately. Not this one!
So that’s it for me this week. I got some really good ones. I also think I have filled my review request quota for the month. I requested a lot of books in the last couple of weeks and I promised myself I wouldn’t do that anymore. I don’t want it to get out of hand and I want to be able to read my own books, so I am going to try and curb it now before it gets crazy again. I still don’t know how I read all those books and got my reviews in on time. IT. WAS. STRESSFUL. What did you add to your shelves this week?
