Stacking the Shelves / Showcase Sunday #27

18 Aug 2013
Showcase Sunday is hosted by Vicky @Books, Biscuits, and Tea and Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews and they both give bloggers the opportunity to share the books they have received in the past week.

I have had a great week as I passed some blog milestones so if you want to stack your own shelves I am celebrating by giving away signed paperbacks and ebooks!

This week I got a lot of books, partly because I reopened to review request and partly because I had a bit of a netgalley spree. I am very excited as this week I received a paperback arc of my most anticipated books of the year, Steelheart by my all time favourite author Brandon Sanderson (if you haven't read his Mistborn series you should check it out now!). As usual if you click on the book cover you will be taken to its Amazon page.

Review

Paperback
 
 
Thank you to Gollancz for these two books.
 
I also received Red Rock by Kate Kelly and Amber by Julie Sykes from Curious Fox.
 
Ebooks
 
Thank you to the authors - Terra Lorin, Brenda Rothbert and Stacey Marie Brown - for these books.
  
 
NetGalley/Edelweiss
 
Thank you to HarperCollins and NAL/Berkely (penguin) for sending me pre-approved links. Also a huge thank you to All Night Reads, Random House Children's UK, Indie Ink, Forever (Grand Central Publishing) and St. Martins Press for approving me to read these books.
 
 
Freebies
 
 I only downloaded one freebie this week but it sounds great and best of all it is still free :D
 
 
Bought
 
This week I bought two steamy romances by an author I love and also the sequel to a book I read for review and needed the next instalment immediately.
 
 
So what do you think? Are there any books you have read, plan to read or have just now caught your eye? Feel free to link to your Stacking the Shelves or equivalent post in the comments.

  1. Steelheart looks good, I have been eying it for some time now. Maybe I will pick it up myself.

  3. I want to download Breaking Nova, but I'm not sure yet. It just sounds like every other book by Jessica Sorensen and it's a series, which means she'll probably end it in an annoying cliffhanger.
    I'm tempted though! I think I'll wait for reviews to come in first.
    I hope you enjoy your lovely books! :)

  7. What a great haul! Steelheart is on its way to me through Amazon Vine. It will be my first Sanderson. I am also really eager to read Archangel's Legion. Come see what I got this week at Inside of a Dog and Ms. Martin Teaches Media. Happy reading!

  8. Ooh, The Falconer sounds awesome!
    I really enjoyed Noble Conflict when I read it earlier on in the year. I can't wait to get a copy of Finding It! I loved Losing It & Faking It, so I can't wait to meet these characters! :D
    Great haul! Happy reading :)

  10. I read Say When last month and I loved it. The chemistry was off the charts. I won an e-book of Love, Lies and Deception and I'm excited to read it.

    Here's my haul:http://adventuresinreading16.blogspot.com/2013/08/stacking-shelves-7.html

    Enjoy your books!
