Stacking the Shelves (July 21, 2013)

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.

Here is what I added to my stack this week. Most of these are books on my Kindle.
Inferno by Dan Brown - Everybody is getting this one. I liked his other books too.

Drop Shot by Harlan Coben - Second Myron Bolitar. I was just introduced to this series and an eager to catch up.

The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith (J. K. Rowling) - I thought the Harry Potter books were clever and, while I wasn't interested in her first adult book, I do like mysteries and thought this one sounded good. 
The Impersonator by Mary Miley was this month's Minotaur ebook galley.  I thought this historical mystery sounded like fun. 

I am gradually buying J. D. Robb's In Death series for my Kindle and re-reading the series. This week I bought books 11 - 15. 

Reunion in Death by J. D. Robb (14)
Purity in Death by J. D. Robb (15)
Betrayal in Death by J. D. Robb (12)
Judgment in Death by J. D. Robb (11)
Seduction in Death by J. D. Robb (13)
I got my only physical book and second review book of the week - Love Gone Mad by Mark Rubenstein - from Meryl Moss Media Relations for a blog tour.

I also added two inexpensive Kindle books to my stack after seeing them on other people's blogs this week. 

Stardust by Mimi Strong was $.99 and sounded like a fun romance.  

The Genie Ignites by Kellyann Zuzulo is a finalist for an award at ALA and sounded like a fun romance too. 

Those were my additions to the stack. What did you add to yours?

  4. I also got Love Gone Mad for the tour. :)

    I love the J.D. Robb books but I'm several behind right now. :( I should start getting them in Kindle; that would free up an entire bookshelf.

  5. I've heard amazing things about The Cuckoo's Calling but, then again, it is written by J. K. Rowling. Hope it's as good as the hype makes it out to be! Happy reading!

  6. I'm kind of interested in reading the new J.K Rowling :P

    Happy reading!

  7. I've seen The Cuckoo's Calling on a lot of lists this week, I wonder why? ;) I too look forward to reading it in the not too distance future! x

  8. I'm jealous of The Cuckoo's Calling. Now that I know it's good ole JK, I can't wait to read it!

    Happy reading!

  9. Great List. I'm listening to all of the In Death books. Just finished Visions in Death.
    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  10. Awesome haul! Thanks for stopping by! :)

  11. The Cuckoo's Calling have received so much attention recently so I'm quite intrigued by it, despite not reading much crime fiction. Enjoy your books!

  12. I've been wanting to read The Cuckoo's Calling - ever since everyone figured out J.K. Rowling wrote it, lol. Enjoy your new stuff!

  13. It seems that I and everyone else are curious about The Cuckoo's Calling. I'm curious to see what everyone thinks. Thanks for stopping by!

  14. It seems a lot of people are checking out the Cuckoo's Calling this week! I loved HP but haven't read the Casual Vacancy as I don't think it's my kind of story. However this one seems more my kind of book, so I might check it out too!

    Hope you enjoy all your new reads :)

  15. I haven't read Inferno yet, but I want to! I also haven't read anything by J.D. Robb, but I heard they're good.
    Thanks for visiting my blog yesterday!

  16. These sound really good. Enjoy your reading.

  17. Great haul! Stardust sounds really good. Thanks for stopping by and happy reading!

  18. I really need to read Inferno. Dan Brown books are always a lot of fun.

  19. Ohh, can't wait to see your thoughts on The Cuckoo's Calling!
    Enjoy all your lovely books & thanks for stopping by my STS! (:

  20. Great books! Have a great week!

  21. Interesting collection! I see that you're a big J.D. Robb (Nora Roberts) fan! I'll have to try one out one of these days, since these are supposed to be really good!

    I like the looks of "Stardust" and "The Genie Ignites". I'm a HUGE romance fan!! However, I will check to see if they're also available in print, since I don't like ebooks AT ALL.

    Hope you enjoy your haul!

    Thanks for visiting and commenting on my STS! Sorry for the late comment back...I'm always pressed for time! Have a good one!! : )
