Stacking the Shelves (Dec. 15, 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 added eight books to my stack this week. First, the new review books:
I won River Road by Jayne Ann Krentz from LibraryThing. She is an auto-buy author for me. I am very glad to get a chance to read and review her latest romantic suspense title before I could buy the book. It will be released on Jan. 7.

I was also glad to get Carousel Sun by Sharon Lee as my first Edelweiss book. I have read both her standalone titles and the many books in the Liaden Universe that she has written with her husband Steve Miller. I enjoyed Carousel Tides and can't wait to see what happens next. This book will be released on Feb. 4.

I must have been hungry when shopping this week because two cookbooks were added to my stack too.
Put an Egg On It by Lara Ferroni has all sorts of recipes featuring eggs. I was a little disappointed once I looked at the book in detail. Most of the recipes are ones I would never want to try because they use rather odd ingredients or they just randomly add an egg to a dish that doesn't really need one but a few look interesting. 

The Big Book of Breakfast by Maryana Vollstedt was a Kindle deal that I haven't had a chance to look at yet. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, though.
Keeping to my food theme, I had to get Medium Raw by Anthony Bourdain when I saw it was a Kindle Daily Deal. I really enjoy all of his television shows and am eager to read his "no holds barred" writing about food and chefs.

Love, Lies and Murder by Catherine Winchester was another Kindle Daily Deal. The combination of mystery, romance, and a historical setting made this one book I needed to have.

Finally, I got a couple of books for my Kindle that are duplicate titles of books I have or have read.
I read the ARC of A Study in Silks by Emma Jane Holloway and enjoyed this steampunk mystery. I wanted a finished copy. It was $.99 for my Kindle.

Dragonwriter: A Tribute to Anne McCaffrey and Pern edited by Todd McCaffrey is a physical book on my shelf but I wanted an ebook version. It was available for a low price this week.

    Happy reading!
