Stacking the Shelves (June 29, 2014)

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.

Despite the fact that I am trying to lower both my TBR Mountain and my stack of Review Books, these are the books I couldn't resist this week.

The Chase by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg - I read The Heist from my TBR Mountain and decided that I really wanted to read the sequel. 

Merciless by Lori Armstrong - I read Mercy Kills from my TBR Mountain and decided that I wanted to read the rest of the books in this series too. This is book 3. I'm still waiting for book 1.
Robert A. Heinlein: In Dialogue with His Century Vol 1 by William H. Patterson, Jr. - Robert A. Heinlein's books are most likely the cause of my love of science fiction. I wanted to know more about the man. I wasn't, however, expecting a book of this length or depth. I may just dip in for bits rather than read the whole thing. 

Night Falls Like Silk by Kathleen Eagle - This was a Kindle Daily Deal and, since I haven't read this author's romances for years, I decided to add this to my stack. 

Review Books
True Love by Jude Deveraux - I got this one this week and read it immediately. I liked this romance very much for its great characters, fascinating setting, and ghost. 

Invincible by Diana Palmer - Since it has been a while since I read a book by this author, I decided to read it when I saw it was offered at NetGalley. It was very typical for this author. It was okay but not the something I need to own or ever read again.
For All Time by Jude Deveraux - This is the second book in the Nantucket Brides trilogy. I loved the first one and can't wait to read this one. It will be released on July 1; so I'll be reading it soon.

No Limits by Lori Foster - This book begins a new series for her. However, it stars a character from an earlier series that I really wanted a book about. I am on the blog tour and posting a review on Sept. 11.
I think this must be the week for revisiting authors I haven't read in a while. When I saw Bones Never Lie by Kathy Reichs as an Amazon Vine pick, I decided that it had been too long since I read a story about Temperance Brennan. This book will be released on Sept. 23.

Finally, Amazon Vine offered ARCs of Burn for Me by Ilona Andrews. I might have done a little happy dance in my living room when I saw it. I can't wait to read this beginning to a new series by a couple of my favorite authors. The book will be released on Oct. 26.

That's it for me. What did you add to your stack this week?


  1. Hope you like Burn For Me as much as I did.

  2. Oooh, Janet Evanovich! LOVE her books. I have never read any book that she co-authors it but it seems that it's just as amazing! Burn For Me looks amazing, glad that you're so happy to receive it. :)

    Happy reading!

  3. I love the TV show Bones and yet I haven't read any of the books in the series. I really should. Have a great week!

  4. Wow! Great book haul. I'd love to hear what you think of Bones Never Lie. I've been reading her books for quite a while.

  5. These look good, especially that Lori Foster book - I'm such a cover junkie. Enjoy!

  6. Great haul! I've been thinking of checking out that Janet Evanovich series, but haven't had the chance yet. Also, yay No Limits! I love Cannon! Have an awesome week!

  7. I have a Lori Armstrong book on my Kindle, waiting to be read. Lots of bloggers got No Limits by Lori Foster last week. I passed on it and the tour this time around. Some day I'm going to read a Bones book by Reichs, some day. :)


  8. So jealous of Burn for Me, love Ilona Andrews! Enjoy!

    Thanx for visiting My Weekly Wrap-Up!
