Hosted by Tynga’s reviews, Stacking the Shelves is a meme that shows off what we added to our shelves this week, whether it’s in eBook or physical format or whether it’s for review or another reason.

Had a pretty good week this week, let’s see what I added to my shelf:

Bought:

Dan Brown by Inferno – SO excited about this, it just got released and I’m going to pick it up soon!

 P1000771

Review copies

Book mail is the best!

Seeking Dr Magic by Scott Spotson

Into the Night by Shannon Pearce

Seventenn & Gone by Nova Ren Suma – got sent this one from Readsplus, woohoo!

P1000769

Review eBooks

I haven’t really accepted many review requests this week, mainly because I feel like I’m struggling to get on top of it all! I’m working full time plus blogging on the side and feeling a bit overwhelmed. Anyone who’s reading this and you’ve sent in a request, I hope you understand! That being said, once I feel like things get a bit more under control I’ll start looking at more. Any other bloggers feel the same way?

That being said, here’s what I’ve agreed to review in the past week.

The Man Who Watched the World End by Chris Dietzel

Beyond the Shadows by Anna Hub

A Ranger’s Tale by Misti Parker

Mortality by Kellie Sheridan

  1. I bourght Inferno this week too! And Into The Night looks amazing! Hope you have a great time reading through this week's haul 🙂

  2. I love the Inferno purchase! Can't wait to hear how you like it. Book mail is always the best. I totally know how ou feel with reviewing being overwhelming. I recently got back from a self imposed hiatus for 3 months to catch up on reviews. I suggest you try that if your review list is too long. One thing I'm doing to prevent myself from going bonkers is to tell the author that if they want a review from me it will be a minimum or 6 months. That way, if it only takes 3 mo, for instance, they'll be pleasantly surprised, instead of wondering when the heck I'm going to get to their review! I've found that many authors are really cool about this and it takes the pressure WAY off me!

    Anyways, looks like you got so e good books this week! Here's MY STS

    • Awesome, thanks for your advice Diamond. I'll have to make a spreadsheet and everything to see whether I get on top of it soon, otherwise I do tell them it'd take a few months – 6 months seems like a good benchmark though. That's great, most authors are usually grateful but if the timeframe is too long I guess it's too bad then!

  3. The Dan Brown one look interesting! Can't wait to hear your opinion on it.
    The last thing I added to my bookshelf was Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy. I already read it though, but I wanted it on my shelf.

  4. Inferno looks so intriguing! I've been seeing that book being advertised on B&N recently. I'll go check it out. Thanks for stopping by my blog 🙂
