Stacking the Shelves (July 28, 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.

I had another big week. Since I have a couple of long car trips in my near future, I decided to stock up on audio books. Tantor Media has a Bargain Bin where you can buy unabridged audio books on CD for only $6.99. Here are the ones I chose (the title links go to Tantor Media):
Acacia by David Anthony Durham is an epic fantasy that will provide 29 hours and 30 minutes of listening time. (Amazon link)

The Devil You Know by Mike Carey is the first in the Felix Caster paranormal series. I'll be listening for fourteen hours. (Amazon link)

I also bought some books that I have already read because I was interested in hearing them as audio books.
Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews is the first in the Kate Daniels urban fantasy series. (Amazon link)

Magic Burns by Ilona Andrews is the second in the Kate Daniels series. (Amazon link)

On the Edge by Ilona Andrews is the first in the Edge series. (Amazon link)
Sunshine by Robin McKinley (Amazon link)

Trading in Danger by Elizabeth Moon (Amazon link)

I also stocked my Kindle and TBR mountain with these books:
I received a copy for review of Hush (Tangleheart) by Carey Baldwin from the author. This is a self-published romantic suspense novella that was released on July 6.

I saw Never Deal with Dragons by Lorenda Christensen on someone's blog and had to have it. Paranormal with dragons! 

Everyone was getting Frigid by J. Lynn (Jennifer Armentrout) last week and I was convinced that I needed it too. 
The Defender by Lindsay McKenna was a Kindle Daily Deal in the romance category this week. 

My two print books of the week were A Cursed Embrace and Sealed with a Curse by Cecy Robson. I read a really good review of one of them and decided I would read them someday. 
Finally, this week I got Storm Force by Susannah Sandlin which was a Kindle Daily Deal in the Romance category.

What did you get this week?

  3. I read a review for Never Deal With Dragons that made me want to read it after being on the fence about it. Yay for Kate Daniels! I hear the audio for that series is amazing :-)

  5. I have Magic Bites in my massive TBR Mountain. Most of the other books mentioned I'm not familiar with. Thanks for stopping by my STS post :)

  6. I`m soo jelous of everyone reading Jennifer L. Armentrout! I still haven`t read a single one of her books, even though I want to. I always forget about them when I look for what to read next.
    Great book haul, though! I see some of the books I have on my tablet :)

  10. 29 hours. 29 hours. That just blows my mind. Wow. I'm just staring audio books and the ones I have 10 hours and 11 hours, which seem very long to me. I hope it'/s a good book and worth the investment of time.

    You got a lot of good books. Like you, I've heard good things about Cecy Robson's books but I haven't tried them yet. I hope you enjoy them.

  11. I gotta get the Ilona Andrews series. You get the actual physical CD's shipped to your address for $6.99? I'm confused.

  12. Oh, you got Frigid. I'm debating picking up a copy as well, I've heard so much hype!

  13. Fabulous haul!! I want to get the Kate Daniels series in print. One of my Fav series ever!

    Thanx for visiting my StS and Sunday Post!
