Stacking the Shelves (5)

tacking The Shelves by Tynga's Reviews is a feature/blog hop, where fellow book bloggers like myself can share what books or ARCs we received, bought or borrowed.

Letterbox Love is a new weekly meme hosted by Narratively Speaking. UK book bloggers have joined together and made a British version of a mailbox meme which is excellent. As I already participate in Stacking the Shelves, I will be adding this to my list too.

Hello my fellow Escapists,

I have had a massive haul this week. As I did a vlog last week, I did not mention the ebooks I had received. Therefore today I will feature the ARCs and ebooks I received last week and this week.

ARCs I received this week


THE RAVENOUS DEAD(Lost Souls # 2) by Natasha Hoar

WILDE'S ARMY(Darkness Falls #2) by Krystal Wade
I recently read the first book, Wilde's Fire, of this series which I really enjoyed. Read my review here.

VELVETEEN (Velveteen #1) by Daniel Marks

This books cover looks so pretty and the blurb makes it seem really exciting. I cannot wait to start reading this.

THE UGLY DUCHESS (Fairy Tales #4) By Eloisa James

Books borrowed

Last week I was obsessed reading The Experiment in Terror series , my friend Emmy from Sinfully Delicious Book Reviews let me borrow her books on Kindle.

LYING SEASON (Experiment in Terror #4) by Karina Halle
I absolutely loved this book. You can read my songs of praises here on my review.

ON DEMON WINGS(Experiment in Terror # 5) by Karina Halle

I shall be reading this book as part of my Terrible Girls Feature this week, so keep your eyes peeled for a review.

Books won
The impossible happened this week. After entering Giveaways for months I have finally won some thing. I'm so pleased with the outcome.So I'm going to try and enter more giveaways and not lose hope. I won these from Laura at Little Red Reading Hood and I'm very grateful for her generosity.

NOCTURNAL(Noctalis Chronicles #1) by Chelsea M. Cameron

NIGHTMARE (Noctalis Chronicles #2) by Chelsea M. Cameron

Uff, that's a long list of books.
