Stacking The Shelves - July 22, 2012

This meme is hosted by Tynga over at Tynga's Reviews, which she describes as follows: 

"Stacking The Shelves is all about the books we are adding to our shelves each week, sharing with you our excitement for our newest titles and maybe have you discover a new book in the process!" 

I won this hardcover in the Literary Giveaway Blog Hop hosted by Falaise at 2606 Books and counting:
(Jeeves, Book #7)
by P.G. Wodehouse

Thanks again, Falaise!

I won these three autographed softcovers in the Paranormal Freebies Blog Hop hosted by the author:

Thanks again, Molly!

I won these autographed softcovers in a giveaway hosted by Lucy at Enchanted by Josephine:

Now, this giveaway has a bit of a history! I actually won Madame Tussaud over a year ago, and the package was shipped out three times but none of the packages ever arrived. I suggested that the author send with a tracking number, and I FINALLY received the package this week on the fourth try! Unfortunately, I did not receive the Marie Antoinette Cupcake Earrings that were to be included in the giveaway as they were lost in the first shipment. However, the author did gift me with a copy of her latest book, The Second Empress, as a consolation.

Thanks again, Lucy & Michelle, for your perseverance!

I received this paperback as a Random Act of Kindness from Kevin at We're Really Falling Apart:

by S.J. Watson

Thanks so much for your kindness, Kevin! I've been dying to get my hands on this one and can't wait to read it!

I won this personally autographed softcover in the Freedom To Read Giveaway hosted by the author:

(Goddess Girls, Super Special)
by Joan Holub and Suzanne Williams

Thanks again, Joan & Suzanne!

by Judy Teel

Thanks again, Nikki & Judy!

I won this e-book in a giveaway hosted by Zohar at Man of La Book:

(The Cypress Branches, Book #1)
by William E. Thomas

Thanks again, Man of La Book, William, and Mike!

I won these two e-books in a giveaway hosted by Pragya at Reviewing Shelf:

Thanks again, Pragya & Zoe!

I won this e-book in the Freedom To Read Giveaway hosted by Tifferz at Tifferz Book Review:

by Melissa A. Hanson

Thanks again, Tifferz & Melissa!

I won an Amazon Gift Card for $7.99 in the Sharing My Favorite Book Giveaway hosted by Romance at Random!

Thanks again, Sue!

What books have you added to your shelves this week? If you are also participating in this meme, please leave me the link to your blog post in the comments so that I can come and drool over all your goodies!

 If anyone has read any of these books, I'd love to hear your thoughts!


  1. I feel like I've just seen Molly Snow's books somewhere. hmm. Anyway, great selection you got here. I love discovering new books :-) Enjoy!

    1. Thanks, Valia! And thanks for leaving your link. I'll pop over to see what goodies you received!

  2. I'm so, so glad the package arrived! And I *can't* believe it :~0 I included not one, but TWO pairs of earrings this last time. There must be some sort of black hole between your house and mine! What on earth?!

    1. Hi, Michelle! That is truly bizarre!! Did you see the photo of the battered packaging that I emailed to Lucy? It's possible that the earrings may have slipped out of the package because it was torn in two places :( No worries, though - I'm just thrilled to finally have the books :)

    2. There is only one answer. The post office clearly has a vendetta against me.

    3. Maybe take it as a compliment that the postal carriers love your books so much that they keep snagging the packages for themselves! :)

  3. You are so lucky to win so many contests. Too bad the packages don't always arrive in good condition. My new book posts are at Ms. Martin Teaches Media and Inside of a Dog. Happy reading!

    1. Hi, Kathy! I do seem to be blessed with book giveaway winnings!! I guess I am destined to read :)

      Thanks for leaving your links. I'm hopping on over to see what goodies you have!

  4. Oh those Molly Snow covers for the books look so cute.


  5. Great set! I've always meant to read PG Wodehouse. I loved Madame Tussaud.
    My Bookish Recap

    1. I haven't read Wodehouse yet, either. I'm looking forward to reading Madame Tussaud!

      Thanks for leaving your link so that I can check out your goodies!

  6. Yay for the the book finally arriving! I loved Cleopatra's Daughter. When I applied for an interview and giveaway, Michelle sent me a signed copy :) Just saw MT in my local bookstore and will get it ASAP.
    Happy reading!
    Here's my StS post.

    1. Another fan of Michelle's books! Glad to hear that you enjoyed Cleopatra's Daughter. I haven't read that one yet either.

      Thanks for leaving the link to your blog so that I can check out your goodies!
