Stacking the Shelves (July 29, 20120)

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.

While you are here, why don't you take a moment and enter my Lazy Days of Summer Giveaway Hop? You can win a $15 book of your choice from The Book Depository.

Now that you are finished, here is what I added to my stack this week.
I recently read Off the Grid by P. J. Tracy and decided that I needed to catch up with the five Monkeewrench novels that came before it. The first three arrived this week - Monkeewrench, Live Bait, and Dead Run. I chose to look for used copies of these in the Amazon Marketplace and was lucky that these three were fulfilled by Amazon. One of the others is coming to me from Great Britain. I just hope it arrives before I leave my vacation home.
I also added three review books to my stack from NetGalley this week. I got Running Wild by Linda Howard and Linda Jones on the strength of Linda Howard's name. She has written some of my favorite romances. This one will be released on Nov. 27.

I also got Timeless Desire by Gwyn Cready at the urging of a publicist from Blue Dot Literary. I was interested because it sounded like a good time travel story and the main character was a librarian. This one was released on July 18. I have already read it and scheduled my review.

I also chose A Royal Pain by Megan Mulry because of the fantasy. Who hasn't dreamed of being swept off their feet by someone royal and taken off to live a life of luxury? This one will be released on Nov. 1.
I also downloaded the free SYNC audiobook of Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra late last week.
I also got keeper copies of Dragon Justice by Laura Anne Gilman and Thirteen by Kelley Armstrong.

I had read the eARC of Dragon Justice and knew I wanted a copy for my keeper shelf to go along with the rest of the series.

I received two copies of Thirteen by Kelley Armstrong which is the last in her Women of the Otherworld series. I pre-ordered my copy on June 9. I also received a copy for review this week from the wonderful folks at Dutton. This means that a giveaway will accompany my review when I finally get a chance to read this one. 

Those are my additions to the never-ending TBR mountain. What did you get this week?
