March 30, 2019

Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts, and of course ebooks!

If you want to find out more about Stacking The Shelves, please visit the official launch page!

Physical Review Copies:

  • Outpost — W. Michael Gear
    • adult sci-fi
      • Thrilling colonization sci-fi! Power struggles! Unforgiving environments!
  • The Silence — Tim Lebbon
    • adult horror
      • Cave setting, blind creatures hunt by sound, young deaf girl must save her family, and it’s being made into a Netflix movie!

NetGalley/Edelweiss Approvals:

  • The Last Post — Renee Carlino
    • adult romance
      • A widow grieves by posting messages to her late husband’s facebook wall, but another man sees the posts and starts sending her anonymous gifts/notes to cheer her up. (This sounded intriguing when I first downloaded it but now it’s sitting at a 3.18 on GR… whoops)
  • The Kiss Thief — L.J. Shen
    • new adult romance
      • I was told this is a pretty dark, heavy NA contemporary romance, and a lot of my friends love this author!
  • Hotel Dare — Terry Blas & Claudia Aguirre
    • MG/YA fantasy graphic novel
      • A couple of adopted siblings go to their grandmother’s hotel and find portals behind the room doors!
  • Teach Me — Olivia Dade (not a NG/EW approval, but an eARC from the author)
    • adult romance
      • This was pitched to me as “the Ice Queen falls for an older cinnamon roll man” and I was told it had positive fat rep, so I’m all in ♥

Kindle Purchases/Freebies:


  • The King’s Man — Elizabeth Kingston (free on kindle!)
    • adult historical romance
      • A king’s assassin/mercenary falls for the widow of a man he killed — sounds traumatizing, right up my alley — and I’m told this is a solid mix of romance and political intrigue!

    Not books on my list right now but I’ll keep my eyes open for your thoughts on the Sci-Fi. Thanks for sharing!

    Hotel Dare sounds really great! And I absolutely dread seeing the Goodreads ratings drop once I’ve already requested a book on NetGalley ?

      Omggg, SAME. It was sitting at a 4.1 or something when I downloaded it, and within less than a week, it was down to below a 3. *cringe forever*

    All of these books sound so interesting, especially the one about hotels with secret portals in them! I hope you enjoy all of these ?
