Stacking the Shelves (Easter Edition - March 31, 2013)

Tynga of Tynga's Reviews has a meme to spotlight the books we receive each week. Visit her site to check out the linky and see what everyone gets. I guarantee that your TBR pile will grow.

This week I added eight books to my TBR mountain.  Half of them were Kindle books which saves space on my crowded TBR shelves.

Review Books:
Dark Waters by Toni Anderson was an Amazon Vine pick. It is a thriller that will be released on August 6.

The Mystery Woman by Amanda Quick came to me through LibraryThing's Early Reviewer program. Quick is a favorite author and I can't wait to read this April 23 release.

Sharp by Alex Hughes is an urban fantasy novel. I am scheduled to be on the blog tour on April 18 and was getting concerned that I wouldn't receive the book in time. My NetGalley link arrived on March 27. Luckily, I had written it in on my calendar before the book arrived. 

Kindle Daily Deals:
God Save the Queen by Kate Locke has been on my wishlist for quite a while. I couldn't pass it up when it showed up as a daily deal this week. This is the part of the blurb that intrigued me: "The undead matriarch of a Britain where the Aristocracy is made up of werewolves and vampires, where goblins live underground and mothers know better than to let their children out after dark. A world where being nobility means being infected with the Plague (side-effects include undeath), Hysteria is the popular affliction of the day, and leeches are considered a delicacy. And a world where technology lives side by side with magic. The year is 2012."

The Lady Risks All by Stephanie Laurens is a historical romance by one of my favorite authors in that genre. Another deal I just couldn't pass up.

Started Early, Took My Dog by Kate Atkinson was a mystery deal. I had never heard of it but was interested because of this part of the blurb: "Jackson is about to learn, along with Tracy, that no good deed goes unpunished."

Two of the books I ordered before publication arrived this week. I got Twice Tempted by Jeaniene Frost and Wolf with Benefits by Shelly Laurenston. While both are paranormals, they have completely different tones. I can't wait to read both of them.

What did you get this week?


  1. Nice! I got Twice Tempted too! Cannot wait to dig in! Trying to decide if it will be before or after my review books I have piled up.

    Here's my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

  2. I love Stephanie Laurens! I had to pick up "Devil's Bride" for my Kindle a few weeks ago during one of the sales. Enjoy!

  3. Oh I loved Onced Burned and want to get Twice Tempted. God Save the Queen sounds so good, I had my eye on it, darn I think I missed that deal! Enjoy your books.

  4. Very nice haul. Happy reading! :)
