Stacking the Shelves (June 22, 2014)

Tynga of Team 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.

I am not doing very well with my goal of lowering the height of my TBR mountain this summer because a number of the books I'm reading have sequels that I just have to read or are parts of series. I am a completist and want to read all of a series or all books by an author if I enjoy a book. Therefore, this is what I added to my stack this week.
I finally read Hounded by Kevin Hearne after it spent a few years on my TBR mountain. I really enjoyed it. Hexed and Hammered were already on the mountain but I had to add Tricked, Trapped, and Hunted to my physical stack (because I'll be sharing them with my technophobic brother.) Taking three books off the stack and adding four doesn't really help me meet my goal of lowering TBR mountain though.
I bought Silent on the Moor by Deanna Raybourn when it was a Kindle Daily Deal. I have two other books in the series on my TBR mountain already. This is book two in the series and books one and three are the ones I already have. 

I also bought Shattered by Kevin Hearne for my Kindle. My brother can wait for the paperback release but I wanted to be able to read the book sooner.
I also added two review books to my stack. Cast in Flame by Michelle Sagara is the eleventh book in the Chronicles of Elantra series. I have read them all and couldn't wait to read this July 29 release. 

I also got Visions by Kelley Armstrong from Penguin's First to Read program. I read the first book in the Cainsville series and enjoyed it. This is the second book. It will be released on August 14.

What did you add to your stack this week?


  1. Eep! Envious of Visions! I joined the programs when Kelley mentioned it on her blog. But sadly, I wasn't able to get one! Now that I really expected to being new to the program! Happy Reading!

  4. I don't think I've heard of any of these! But hehehe, at least you're trying to diminish your TBR! :) Have a great week Kathy!

  5. Most of these are new to me, but they sound good. I hope you enjoy them :)

  6. Seeing new books again...maybe I should try to limit the amount of books I add to my TBR as well >.<

    Hope you enjoy your new books!
