Stacking the Shelves - March 28, 2015

I've meant to post my STS post. Really I have. I always end up doing it on Sunday and by the time I get everything else done I need to do, I've been too tired to write let alone think. And so, my STS list would sit idle, neglected. I would add to it, but never allow it to fulfill its purpose, to share my acquisitions since the last time I posted the meme.

I did say I have been a lot more conservative about book buying of late. And so I have. Many of the books I picked up were almost a steal the prices were so low. Just keep that in mind.

Also just to remind you all out there, Amazon has a Big Deal Sale currently running through tomorrow. So, check it out while you have the chance.  And Entangled Publishing has a $.99 Kindle sale on at the moment.

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews.

Books Purchased:
Rise of the Arcane Fire (The Secret Order) by Kristin Bailey

Rhymes with Cupid by Anna Humphrey – Bargain Book

Four: A Divergent Collection by Veronica Roth - After reading Divergent, I had to get this one.  I am intrigued by the snippets of his back story told in Divergent.

  1. Great haul! Sarah Ockler's books sound so good. I hope you enjoy everything!

    1. I have read a couple of Sarah Ockler's books and I have really enjoyed them, so I do expect it to be good. Now I just have to find the time to read.

  2. I love the Embrace series and the second one, Hold Tight, is even better. I have reviews - without spoilers on my blog as well as my haul at Thanks for sharing what you got and enjoy your reading.

    1. I will definitely check out your reviews for the series. I'm glad to hear you like the books. Sometimes it is hard to get a good feel in a short sample. I have the second one on my wish list, but will read this one first before I pick it up. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I still need to get Four, even though I've already read one of the short stories in it. Great haul this week!
    Check out my Sunday Post

    1. I saw the four short stories as Kindle downloads. It actually would have been cheaper to buy them in Kindle, but I have the first two in hard cover. It's nice to keep the books as a set. I really liked Four's character and am really looking forward to reading his back story.

  4. Nice haul! And sometimes a book is such a bargain, how are you not supposed to buy it? And don't get me started on the freebies! Remember that you can always do one of these with only one title if necessary, so no need to keep it until you add all the books. That way, we don't have to wait to see your new goodies!

    1. It wasn't so much a matter of having no books to share. I've just been kind of tired lately. Work's been getting to me a bit. So, I can't get to the computer until around 11. I sit for a minute, stare at the screen, think of what to write, my mind goes blank and I go to bed instead.
      I will try really hard to get this up every week.
