Stacking the Shelves | September & October 2018

STSmall_thumb2_thumb

Stacking The Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews 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 a physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

Hi friends! It’s been a while since I’ve hauled any books here on the blog or on my channel. It’s because I really have not been buying very many books lately. When I do pick up a book I usually just share it on my Instagram. I have received some books for review since my last haul here on the blog so I thought I would share them with you.

Let’s get started! I will link to the Goodreads page for each book below as well in case you want to check them out.


Kindle Book Sales: 

None. I’m trying to stick to not purchasing any Kindle or Audible books until I read the ones I already own. My audible membership is on hold at the moment and I’m deleting any Kindle deals emails automatically without opening them.


Physical Books:

The only physical books I have hauled are from my BOTM subscriptions and I actually put a hold on that as well in September. I need to read the books I have from those subscription boxes before I restart my membership. I really love BOTM but my unread book pile from that box was getting out of hand.

If you are interested in BOTM I do have a referral link you can use if you like. You get a free book and so do I.


NetGalley/Edelweiss Review Galleys:

Rule by Ellen Goodlett – I received this via NetGalley in exchange for a review from the publisher. This is the first book in a YA fantasy series. A dying king, a murdered heir to the throne, and rebellion ensues. Sounds like complete chaos right? However, the kingdom of Kolonya has one last chance for civilized society before it completely descends into mayhem. Make that three options. Three girls with deadly secrets, but only one can inherit the throne. I’m expecting lots of political intrigues, some magic, and action in this one. I hope it lives up to my expectations. I’ll be sure to let you know!

Stuck in Manistique by Dennis Cuesta -I received this via NetGalley in exchange for a review from the publisher. This is a standalone adult contemporary fiction that a man named Mark who inherits a bed and breakfast in Manistique, Michigan. As he is touring the house for the first time, the doorbell rings and he finds himself playing along as a host to a woman that finds herself stranded in the area after her car collides with a deer. That’s all I know about the book so far. I’ll let you know more along with my thoughts once I read it.

In the Rough by Sara Brookes – I received this via NetGalley in exchange for a review from the publisher. This is the third book in a m/m erotic romance series. I honestly don’t know much about it other than that. I’ll be sure to let you know more about the book and my thoughts when I post my review.

Shift’s End by A.R. Barley – I received this via NetGalley in exchange for a review from the publisher. This is the third book in a m/m romance series. I honestly don’t know much about it other than that. I’ll be sure to let you know more about the book and my thoughts when I post my review.

Claiming His Lioness by Kerry Adrienne – I received this via NetGalley in exchange for a review from the publisher. This is the fourth book in a paranormal romance series. It’s been a while since I have picked up a paranormal romance. Again another book that is part of a series, however, I’m going to guess each book features a different couple. If this is the case I should be able to pick up the series out of order pretty easily.

Counterpoint by Anna Zabo – I received this via NetGalley in exchange for a review from the publisher. This is the second book in a m/m romance series written by a non-binary author. I didn’t know it was the second book until I had accepted the review request. I’m hoping it won’t be too difficult to pick up the series out of order. This will be my first book written by Mx. Zabo. Hopefully, it will be the first of many.

The Wolf at Bay by Charlie Adhara – I received this via NetGalley in exchange for a review from the publisher. This is also the second book in a m/m romance series. I really wish NetGalley would list this information in the description of the books. I am hoping I can also easily pick up this series out of order.

Dagger’s Edge by Lora Leigh – I received this via NetGalley in exchange for a review from the publisher. I know I’ve said it before but I really love Lora Leigh’s books. Her characters are fantastic and the chemistry between her couples are off the charts. If you are looking for a good entertaining and smutty romance you need to pick up one of Leigh’s romance series.

For Better or Worse by Margot Hunt – I received this via NetGalley in exchange for a review from the publisher. I do love me a good thriller. Domestic thrillers can be a hit or a miss for me so fingers crossed that I enjoy this one.

Cowboy Cross My Heart by Donna Grant – I received this via NetGalley in exchange for a review from the publisher. I haven’t read a good cowboy romance in a while so I thought why not give this one a try. I’ve only read Grant’s Dark King series. I really enjoyed it so I’m interested to see how Grant’s contemporary series will go.


That my friends is it for my September and October 2018 book haul. The majority of the books added to my TBR were review books. That isn’t that bad right? Of course, this does not include any borrowed books. I will do a separate post for the books I checked out from my library, as well as my Libby and Hoopla apps.
Let’s chat down below in the comments! What books have you added to your TBR recently?

As always keep on reading and stay book nerdy my friends!
