Stacking the Shelves / Showcase Sunday #40

1 Dec 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.

November Wrap-up

November started of as a really slow reading month for me due to University being pretty hectic. However things got much better and I managed to reach my NetGalley November target of 16 books as well as reading a few others for blog tours. You can check out my final NetGalley November update here.
This month was incredible for new releases, especially some eagerly anticipated sequels. You can check out the hottest releases and my personal favourites here - November New Releases


The Books This Week

This week I got a really good mix of books and also lots of freebies that you can get yourself. As usual if you click on the book cover you will be taken to the books Amazon page.
April Fools
NetGalley & Edelweiss
This week I got two books from Edelweiss and 3 from NetGalley. Be With Me and Needing Her are books by my favourite authors that I could not wait for. King Cave is the sequel to one of my favourite books so far this year - this one was pretty good too :) Charred Heart I got to satisfy my Urban Fantasy craving (and boy was it a good choice!). I also got Connected as I already had book 2 and wanted to read book 1 first.
Needing Her
I got loads of freebies this week which is just as well as I have run out of money (No joke :( ! ) so I need great books to tide me over until mid-January.


I bought a two books earlier this week (before I ran out of money :P) and they both look pretty great. Annoyingly, Fate became free about 2 days after I bought it :P
This week I received 2 books which I had previously won. I am very excited to read these as I have heard great things about them both.
So what do you think? Have you read or plan to read any of these books? Feel free to link to your own Stacking the Shelves or similar posts in the comments.


  1. Whoa what a haul!! So many freebies :) I love Lizzy Ford and cant wait to read Charred Heart. I have The Woken Gods but haven't read it yet. The rest Ill have to look on Goodreads because I've not heard of most :) Enjoy!!

  2. Nice assortment of books. I haven't read any of them yet and will be eager to hear what you think about them. Come see what I got at Ms. Martin Teaches Media and Inside of a Dog. Happy reading!

  3. Great that you got so many freebies, not so great about running out of money :( Happy reading!

  4. Wow what a lot of great looking stuff! :-) And congrats on those two wins too! Hope you enjoy them all and have a lovely week. :-)

  5. I need to get myself a copy of Connected and Be With Me soon! I loved Wait For You so I can't wait to read about Cam's sister in this one. Tragic is brilliant! Definitely one of my favourite NA books. I hope you enjoy it too!
    I'm about half way through The Woken Gods just now and I'm really enjoying it, so I hope you do too.
    Great haul, Laura! Happy reading :)

  6. I've heard really good things about The Woken Gods so I'd be interested in hearing your own thoughts once you've read it, Laura. Happy reading! :D

  7. I really love your blog design! It's so cute! And you have so many books this week. I haven't read any of these but I like Jennifer L. Armentrout's writing so I may Be With Me a try.
