Stacking the Shelves #50


Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews
Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks! Click on the link under the book to find its page on Goodreads or Smashwords.
                  
Please note that I always leave a message on your STS/SP if you visit me, but if you use DISQUS I will not be able to leave a comment on your page. And sometimes, I have problems leaving messages on blogs hosted by Wordpress. Links will take you to a Goodreads page or Smashwords page where you can view the book plot. Don't say I'm not good to you!

This was an AWESOME book week! A few books that were pre-ordered arrived, a couple of favourites bought in paperback, a nice zombie freebie discovered on Smashwords, a UF freebie on amazon, plus a very good trip to the charity shop! I picked up a pile of kids books for good causes on bookcrossing, some books about WWII for my uncle and a nice pile of books for me. 40 books for £14! I'm only putting the ones I bought for myself on my STS though. So that was pretty exciting and it is taking me a couple of hours to get this up due to graphics problems with blogger today. The only one I've read in this haul is Inquest which was a great dystopian novel so I decided to buy the whole trilogy!

    1. About 3 years ago I finally started reading a pile of Stephen King books that had been lurking for years but none of them really inspired me so I stopped buying them. So getting this small pile of his latest works cheap was a good buy!

  2. I've been meaning to get myself a copy of The Last Werewolf basically forever! I read a little of the first page and the writing is lovely. I read War Horse not so long ago. It's a great book, but I wasn't expecting it to be from the perspective of the horse... I hope you have a great week!

    1. The Last Werewolf was one of those books that I was never sure if I wanted to read but when it is that cheap, it's worth taking a chance! Hope we both enjoy it! And the copy I've got of War Horse is colour illustrated and is gorgeous!

    1. Chuckles and Technology do not mix so I wouldn't have a clue how to fix Ibooks and stuff! Yep, freebies and bargains are all good!

  5. Arrghh, I keep clicking on the wrong thing and losing my comment. *threatens Google Chrome with raised fist* So yeah, I was trying to say it looks like a good haul! Some I'm intending to read, too -- Joyland, War Horse, The Last Werewolf. I hope you enjoy 'em!

    1. I'm already halfway through War Horse and it's a decent read. It's Black Beauty set in WW1 basically. Hope to finish it today and get to the next book!

  7. I liked Stephen King's earlier books more than his later ones. You got some interesting covers. Thanks for visiting me earlier.

    1. Yes I agree...I loved IT, The Stand, Salems Lot etc. I felt the books he has written since his accident haven't been as good but hopefully I'll enjoy these. I also still have Under the Dome to read. Where to find the time...

  9. Yay for all the Stephen King nabs! He is my husbands favorite author and I am slowly being corrupted by his books :) Happy Reading!
    Here are my newest additions.

    1. The one thing with Stephen King can be the length of his books! With me not getting much reading time it could take a while to get through them!

  10. WOW! A lot of Stephen King books. You're really in the mood to read a lot of horror books. I've only read 4 Stephen King books in my life and they are really scary and very long. I don't think I would pick another one in the series.

    I hope you have a lot fun reading your pretties, Chuckle! 40 books for £14?! That's a reader's dream come true! <3333
