Stacking the Shelves / Showcase Sunday #28

25 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.
 
Yet again this week I got a lot of books from netgalley partially because I was sent pre-approved links for about 20 books (I actually resisted most). From today onwards I am requesting no more books from netgalley until I have given feedback on almost all I currently have. I also treated myself to a few books this week that I have been wanting to buy for ages.

This week I wrote a post about review requests which most people seem to like so far. See if you agree with what I say here.

As usual if you click on the book cover you will be taken to its Amazon page.
 
Review
 
Paperback

A huge thank you to Indigo, HarperFiction and Random House kids UK for these wonderful books. All of these are books that I am very excited to read.
 
 
Ebook

This is an NA sci-fi novel that sounds unique and amazing. Thank you to Stephanie J Pajonas for the copy and the lovely review request.
 
 
NetGalley
 
Thank you to NAL/Berkley/Signet romance (Penguin), Harlequin Teen, Indie Inked, Elyssa Patrick, Scholastic, Marie Hall and Egmont USA for the lovely ebooks.
 
 
 
Freebies

A downloaded a few cool looking freebies and most are still available for free if they interest you.
  
 
Bought
 
Taming Cross is a recently released sequel, HDU is a book by an author I love and I finally bought myself this book as a treat (was really good!). Pantomime and Shift are both books I have had my eye on for a while and are currently on sale for a limited time.
 
 
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.

  2. I got Countdown as well and I look forward to it, but sadly I didn't get Inhuman.
    Happy reading!

  3. I got SO excited when I saw the new Karen Chance on NetGalley. I think the 80% feedback guideline is a good one, unless you send feedback for when you start a book but don't want to continue. I've done that a couple of times.

    And Pantomime is SO GOOD!

  7. What a great assortment of books! I loved The Coldest Girl in Coldtown and was just approved for The Iron Traitor too. Teardrop, Inhuman, and BZRK are also on my review stack. Come see what I got this week at Inside of a Dog and Ms. Martin Teaches Media. Happy reading!

  19. Great book haul. I have had Rule for a while, but haven't had time to read it. I hear it is good. I also got several of the others you have. I'll be looking forward to your reviews.
