Stacking The Shelves & What I'm Reading

Stacking The Shelves is a weekly meme being hosted by Tynga's Reviews, while Mailbox Monday is being hosted by Dolce Bellezza this month (see Mailbox Monday for each month's host). Both memes are all about sharing the books you've added to your shelves - physical and virtual, borrowed and bought. It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Book Journey, and it's focused on what's in your hands, as opposed to what's on your shelf.

With an average of two reads per week scheduled into the middle of August, I've been trying to hold off on adding to the TBR pile. However, there are a few titles with release dates outside that review window which I couldn't stop myself from requesting:

What's topping your shelves this week?


  1. All your books are new to me and books that I hadn't heard of before. You got some interesting books. Come visit me as well.


  2. OOh nice! These are all new to me as well, but they do look exciting! Hope you enjoy each and every one of them!

  3. The troop looks like it would be an interesting read. Thanks for stopping by my sts.

  4. I had to stop myself from requesting Three as I don't know when I'd fit it in, plus I already have Chuck Wendig's latest to get on with from the Robots!

  5. THREE and PHARAOH seem exciting, Bob

  6. You got a nice group of books. I like John Ringo and will have to check out Under a Graveyard Sky. Come see my Monday Report here. Happy reading!

  7. I've heard of The Troop and that author just recently. The rest are new to me, but that is a good thing. I like to discover new titles. Thanks for sharing today.
