Stacking the Shelves & Week in Review 7/4/15

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature hosted by Tynga's Reviews to share what we've added to our shelves for the week.

Well, this week was MUCH better than last week. Having power was definitely an improvement. In case you missed what happened last week, here goes: Terrible storms came through and knocked our power out for most of last week. It was sweltering outside and I had no internet so I couldn't really post anything or visit anyone. It sucked. I got a lot of reading done, though. I'm back on track with the blog and I have all new food in my fridge to replace ALL the other food that had to be thrown away.

I didn't have an StS last week because I had just gotten my power back and was cleaning up the awful mess from the week of living Amish. This post will recap TWO WEEKS of book acquisitions and blog posts. I didn't really buy that much but I got quite a bit for review over the past two weeks.


The Rules by Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguie
Hello, I Love You by Katie M. Stout
The Body in the Woods (Point Last Seen #1) by April Henry (paperback)

Get Dirty (Don't Get Mad #2) by Gretchen McNeil

First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones
Second Grave on the Left by Darynda Jones

  1. OOoh nice! I LOVE the Charley Davidson series! You're in for a treat! I'm behind in it though! Still need to read the 7th book and book 8 just came out in May too! Arg. Always behind! LOL!

    Looooved the Rules and Powerless! Still need to read Get Dirty! Aggravating too since I was dying to read it right after reading Get Even as an ARC last year, and now I haven't had time for it! Sigh...

    Hope you enjoy all the fab new reads!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by then!

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

    1. I've been SO excited about The Rules for a long time! I love the authors. I'm really looking forward to finally starting the Charlie Davidson series! I can't wait to see what you added to your shelves! See you tomorrow on your blog!

  2. Oh! You did OwlCrate. I want to subscribe so badly, I just can't justify the price. :(

    I'm super jealous of your copies of Powerless and More Happy Than Not, though. Happy reading!

    1. I didn't do OwlCrate at first, but I finally gave in. It's so fun when I get my box! Happy reading!

  3. I didn't like Sweet much, but I like the cover of Expelled. Curious about Forbidden! I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a great weekend :)

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

    1. I loved Sweet. It was rather gory, though. I didn't expect that. Forbidden sounds really good, I hadn't heard of it before. Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Way to go and get an awesome stash this week! I AM PRINCESS X keeps taunting me as a potential book to read that I'll have to check out your review. Cherie Priest is a favorite of mine. While You Were Gone delivered but for some reason I didn't like it as much as the first. Happy Reading!

  5. I also got Stone Rider and it looks fun and cute! I met the author and he signed my copy and he was awesome. The OwlCrate delivery looks awesome! Really want to read More Happy Than Not! Thanks for stopping by!

    Jennifer @ Some Like It Paranormal

  6. Awesome haul! I really wanna get owlcrate but I'm waiting until they make the worldwide shipping cheaper. I hope it happens soon! <3

  7. WOW! WHAT A GREAT HAUL THIS WEEK! I liked Powerless. I just started the First Grave on The Right on audio. I'm really looking forward to reading The Rules too! Happy 4th!

  8. Awesome haul. I have More Happy Than Not sitting on my shelf. I’m looking forward to reading it.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  9. Even though Sweet was only okay for me, I really want to read Expelled! Also, Drowning is Inevitable looks so good. And the OwlCrate is fabulous!! Hope you have a wonderful week full of electricity, and enjoy the new books :)

    Shannon @ It Starts At Midnight

  10. I love the OwlCrate!! So much excitement in one box. :) I hope you love More Happy Than Not!

  11. I love seeing everyone's OwlCrate. I can't wait until I have a steady enough job so I can subscribe to it. Powerless was amazing! It reminded me a lot of Sky High and that was my favorite super hero movie as a kid. Great haul!
