Stacking the Shelves (8)

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature hosted by Tynga's Reviews showcasing new books we've either received or bought this past week.

This week I was waiting on a couple of separate book deliveries that unfortunately haven't arrived yet...  womp womp!  I did still manage to get a hold of some pretty sweet e-books (including some freebies) and a few galleys as well so here we go:

Here are the e-books I got  hold of:




Die for Me has been sitting on top of my reading list for far too long.  A few days ago I was checking my book recommendations on kobo and there it was for...get this: $1.99!!!  Yeah, like I was ever going to be able to pass that up ;)  And after featuring The Faerie Guardian for last week's WoW feature, I found it available (again on kobo) for $1.99....talk about perfect timing!

These are the freebies I got (e-books):




So I'd never heard about either of these but after the success I had with kobo suggestions I went ahead and checked my kindle suggestions via Amazon and I was pleasantly surprised once again:  Ethereal is a paranormal type read featuring earth-bound angels.  It had some pretty decent reviews from some of my Goodreads friends so I decided to give it a try. Plus I was really drawn to the lunar imagery used on the cover ;)  Madly I'm a bit more into...because it features Mermaids and as much as I love Mermaids, I have yet to read a single Mermaid book.  I've heard great things about it as well so I'm pumped to check it out!  I also happen to think the cover is pretty spectacular ♥

And finally, here are my Netgalley books:


Heart of the Dragon's Realm I discovered after the lovely Anya featured it via her blog On Starships and Dragonwings.  It's a short story featuring a princess and dragons... for someone like me it was impossible to pass up!  Dark Dealings I'd been considering for awhile and I figured I might as well give it a try.  It's a sexy adult paranormal romance featuring elemental magic.  I think the cover is pretty hot and from what I've read about it, it seems like it could be a fun read!

That's all for me this week, what books did you guys get? 
Link me so I can go check it out :)

  7. The Faerie Guardian looks interesting. I'm on a book buying ban after this week. I kind of went overboard this week.

    Nice haul.

  12. Great haul! Die For Me has also been on my TBR list for what seems like forever... you really got a sweet deal there ;) And I've heard great things about Madly even though I haven't read it yet. Didn't remember it was about mermaids. I'll be watching out for your review because I also haven't read a mermaid book yet and if you like it, I'll know where to start ;)
    Happy reading, and thanks for stopping by my post!

  17. Die for me is so pretty! I love the covers of that series. I really enjoyed it but it seems to be a series you really love or hate. The plot is nothing extraordinary but the setting is what sold it for me. It's set in France and it's so vivid. Madley has such a cool cover, too! And you can't go wrong with free!! Nice week, chickie!
