Stacking the Shelves #6

Stacking the Shelves is about sharing the books you’re adding to your shelves for the week. Show off the books you’ve bought, won, borrowed, etc. While it’s usually hosted on Saturdays, it can be posted any day of the week that works. For my own personal time management, my STS posts will be on Sundays when I make them. STS is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. Click to learn more and follow other awesome bloggers!


It’s a bit of a late post this week, but better late than never!

So, let’s just jump right into it:


Being on a tight book budget right at the moment is keeping me from grabbing up all the new releases recently. Makes me a little depressed to be honest.

In the last couple of weeks, I’ve only picked up a couple of physical books.

I had to include one extra book in the picture though since I haven’t done a STS post since my birthday (which was early September).

Book bought:

Micro by Michael Crichton. I have to say that I really quite like Michael Crichton books. I have since I was young. Jurassic Park was one of the first “big book” reads when I was a pre-teen around the same time I was picking up Stephen King, and it’s still one of my favorite books. I was so sad when I heard of Crichton’s passing. This is his very last manuscript that he’d been in the process of finishing. Check it out at Goodreads to find out more about the book.

Book won:

The Captain Jack Sparrow Handbook by Jason Heller (won it on Talk Like A Pirate Day, thanks to Quirk Books!) See it at Goodreads.

Book gifted to me:

Thanks to Julia, @Craving4Books, on Twitter for the awesome birthday gift a few weeks ago. Sorry I’m just now showing it off on the blog. Haha! But you can see it in the picture, the middle book. It looks and sounds lovely: Hunting and Gathering by Anna Gavalda

Books received for review--e-galleys from NetGalley, publishers, Edelweiss, etc. (click on titles to be taken to Goodreads’ pages) :

Blind Spot -- Laura Ellen
The Dark Unwinding -- Sharon Cameron
Undeadly -- Michele Vail
Conjure -- Lea Nolan

Happy reading!

  1. Michael Crichton was one of my favorites when I was younger, though I've gotten distracted by teen books now. I'm doing everything backwards. lol.

    The Dark Unwinding is prettily written, but don't read it on a day you're looking for action. I have a copy of Undeadly too. The cover is so pretty!
