Stacking the Shelves (May 20, 2012)

Tynga of Tynga's Reviews is starting a new meme to spotlight the books we receive each week. She explains at her site. She also does a very nice vlog each week showing her books.

I guarantee that your TBR pile will grow when you see all the wonderful books everyone gets. You will also discover lots of great blogs and lots of books that you won't be able to live without.

This was a sort of quiet week on the new books front. I bought one book and received three books for review.  Here is what I got:
I bought Sliding Home by Kate Angell for my Kindle only to discover that I already owned this book. I just hadn't had time to read it yet. I like romances involving sports and professional athletes. So I look forward to finally getting a chance to read this one.

I also got Love Is Murder by Sandra Brown. This book is for a sort of unusual blog tour. A different author will be featured each day on the tour. Participating bloggers will post a teaser of the author’s short story, an author bio, and a review of LOVE IS MURDER. My day is June 19 and my author is William Bernhardt. I haven't read anything by him and look forward to this tour.
I also received two more books from the Amazon Vine Program. These are both mysteries published by Thomas & Mercer which is apparently part of Amazon.

I chose Grave of Angels by Michael Prescott is about a former Carmelite nun who now runs a security service in Hollywood and Icon by J. Carson Black which is about a Hollywood superstar who would be worth millions if he were dead and those who want to make him dead. I was intrigued by both blurbs.

That was my week. What did you get this week?

  6. Love Is Murder has some big names. I don't read a lot of short stories, but I am more inclined to when the stories are written by authors I admire. Like Alison Brennan or Sherrilyn Kenyon for instance. Happy reading!
