Stacking the Shelves [5]

Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews where book lovers share what books they got throughout the week!

Ok, so if you saw last week’s Stacking the Shelves you would remember that I am trying to not get too many books this year because I went a little overboard last year. Well… I acquired more books than I thought I did this week. Good news is that most were either free or only 99 cents which fits with the rule I set for myself this year.

Here are the books I got this week…


There was sale on the Checkmate Series by Kennedy Fox earlier this week where Travis and Viola’s duet was free and then Drew and Courtney’s duet was only 99 cents. I actually own the first books in both of these duets but I couldn’t pass this chance to get the second books even if I already owned the first ones.

**Drew and Courtney’s duet is still only 99 cents at the time of posting. While Travis and Viola’s duet is not on sale anymore the first book in that duet, Checkmate: This is War, is currently FREE at the time of this posting so if you are interested you could at least get started with that duet.**

Shameless by Lex Martin, which I have heard amazing things about, and Dirty Deeds by Stella Rhys, which looks like a really good enemies to lovers romance, were both only 99 cents so I snatched those up.
**Both books are still 99 cents at the time of posting if anyone is interested.**

Then, I discovered Whiskey Prince by Toni Aleo was FREE through my daily Bookbub deals email and I got it purely because it takes place in Ireland and I have a bit of an obsession with Ireland at the moment since my little sister just left for Dublin for a semester abroad. I also discovered in that same email that These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner was 99 cents and I have heard wonderful things about this YA fantasy series so I picked that up too.
**Both books are still on sale at time of posting if anyone is interested**

Lastly, I got Come Home Again by Nana Malone and Stoned by Mandi Beck for free through author newsletters. I am excited to have a book by Nana Malone since she is a romance author who is a woman of color which is so wonderful since we need to have more of them in the romance world. And Stoned by Mandi Beck looks like a really good rockstar romance, a genre I am really liking right now.
**Come Home Again is currently FREE at the time of posting if anyone is interested**


I was lucky enough to get an E-ARC copy of The First Kiss of Spring and The Favorite Sister through Netgalley. I still can’t believe I was approved for The Favorite Sister but I can’t wait to read it since I enjoyed Luckiest Girl Alive a few years ago. I also got E-ARC of Play for Keeps through the publisher. It looks like a great sports romance between a basketball coach and a PR guru.

So, those are all the books I got this week.

What books did you guys get this week?
Have you read any of the books I got?
