Stacking The Shelves is feature/weekly meme created by Tynga’s Reviews in which you share the books you are adding to your shelves, both physical and virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical stores or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

Lenoreo’s Haul

(All Ebooks unless otherwise specified)

NetGalley ARC Requests Approved:

  • Crazy Love by Kendra C. Highley from Entangled: Embrace (Entangled Publishing, LLC) — releases January 22nd, 2018.  I’ve read some of Ms. Highley’s YA books and really enjoyed them, so I’m excited to read an NA from her.
  • Love Between Enemies (Grad Night #2) by Molly E. Lee from Entangled: Crush (Entangled Publishing, LLC) — releases January 8th, 2018.  I thoroughly enjoyed the first book in this series (see my review for Love in the Friend Zone) and can’t wait to read Zoey and Gordon’s story!
  • Lions and Tigers and Boys (series name unknown #1) by Tawny Stokes from Entangled: Crave (Entangled Publishing, LLC) — releases January 8th, 2018.  I read a LOT of contemporary books, and for 2018 I kind of want to try to mix it up a bit more.  So even though I really didn’t need more ARCs in January, I couldn’t help requesting this Wizard of Oz retelling-ish…  It sounds really good!!
  • The Vanishing Spark of Dusk (series name unknown #1) by Sara Baysinger from Entangled: Teen (Entangled Publishing, LLC) — releases January 8th, 2018.  And similarly, adding another sci-fi to my list sounded like a great idea!!  🙂

ARCs from Authors/PR Companies:

  • Game of Hearts (Fandom Hearts #3) by Cathy Yardley — releases January 30th, 2018.  OK, so in all things amazing, this author contacted both Curly Carla and I and asked if we’d share an excerpt and offered us both an ARC!!  So excited, I LOVED book 2 of this series (see my review of One True Pairing), and can’t wait to read this one!

Preorders That Went Live:

  • Man Hands (Man Hands #1) by Sarina Bowen & Tanya Eby — released December 11th, 2017.  I read an ARC of this book and loved it (see my review here), and since there was a preorder sale I totes snagged it!

New Releases:

  • Countdown to Midnight (The Story Sisters #2.5) by Katy Regnery — released December 10th, 2017.  I was saddened to hear about the end of the Blueberry Lane series this summer, especially in the middle of The Story Sisters series.  So I was ecstatic to hear that we’d be getting a novella of the last two sisters for Christmas!  Merry Christmas to me!  I’m excited to dive into this one!

Purchased:

  • Kissing Tolstoy (Dear Professor #1) by Penny Reid — So this one is the extended version of “No One Looks Good in Leather Pants” which has been released a chapter at a time in Ms. Reid’s newsletter…which I never read, b/c I have no patience, and can’t read books in chunks.  But the proceeds from the sale of this book went to hurricane relief in November, and I forgot to buy it then.  But then I saw in Ms. Reid’s newsletter that the proceeds in December would go to Toys for Tots, so I figured I would get my purchase in!

Jingle Bell Book Exchange:

The Jingle Bell Book Exchange is on its third year and is a group of readers who post their Christmas wishlists and then other readers buy books for them!  The rule is that you have to purchase at least 1 book for someone else.  They can be Kindle books or Paperbacks/Hardcovers.  I love this, b/c you get to give and receive!  I love making someone else’s day!  And I love scoring some highly coveted books!  I had some problems this year with Amazon not wanting to give me the books b/c I’m in Canada, but I was mostly able to exchange for credit and then buy the books myself.  Amazon be cray-cray.

  • Burn Before Reading by Sara Wolf from Annie!!  I LOVED Ms. Wolf’s Lovely Vicious series, and so was looking to read more from this author!

Got It On Sale:

  • An Ex for Christmas (Love Unexpectedly #5) by Lauren Layne — I adore Ms. Layne, and I adore Christmas books.  So when I got an eReaderIQ alert that this book was on sale for $1.99 from its usual $4.99, I squeeed and one-clicked!!  Still on sale!
  • Scoring (Lowell High School #2.5) by Mari Carr — I spent the last week cleaning up my old Kindle so that maybe I can give it to someone, which meant a lot of redownloading Harlequin books and emailing them to the Kindle cloud instead of just transferring them manually.  So I already had this novella, I think maybe from the previous publisher’s webpage directly.  It’s since been rereleased, and since I didn’t have it in the cloud, and it appears to always be free, I just bought it from Amazon instead.
  • Luther’s Return (Scanguard Vampires #10) by Tina Folsom — I’ve read the first 4 or 5 books in this series and really enjoyed them, so even though I don’t have a few in between, when I got the eReaderIQ alert that this book was on sale for 99 cents from its usual $4.99, I snatched it up.   It’s still on sale, but I saw in Ms. Folsom’s newsletter that it’s a short sale, so grab it quick.
  • 6 Mountain Brothers for Christmas by Rye Hart — This one is Curly Carla’s fault from last week’s Stacking the Shelves…I’ve been intrigued by Reverse Harem stories, so decided to give it a go.  Technically I don’t think this is actually a sale, it appears to always be 99 cents.
  • Legs by Kelly Siskind — I’ve enjoyed a few books by Ms. Siskind, so when I got an eReaderIQ alert that this book was on sale for 99 cents from its usual $2.99, I snatched it up!  No longer on sale.
