More Bookshelf Additions for August

Hello bookish friends,
It's Stacking the Shelves** (aka book haul) time! Here are the books Leslie and I (but mostly me) got this week.

Physical books:
Leslie and I won a bunch of books from Randombuzzers in the last couple of months and they came all at once!
Belle Epoque by Elizabeth Ross
[[Guys, the cover of Belle Epoque is so gorgeous in real life! We really wish the picture can give it justice. But alas...]] 
Of Beast and Beast by Stacey Jay (ARC)
Starters by Lissa Price 
This one was a happy surprise! I'm a HUGE Nalini Singh fan so pre-ordered it a while back so I didn't bother requesting an early review copy. But an ARC showed up anyway. YAY!!
Archangel's Legion (Guild Hunter #6) by Nalini Singh (ARC)
Michelle ordered these from Better World Books last month and they finally came.
Inside Out by Lauren Dane
[[I already read Inside Out and I liked it overall. The hero was very, very swoon-worthy.]] 
Never Enough by Lauren Dane

We added these e-books to our Kindle:
E-books for review:
Conjured by Sarah Beth Durst
Six Months Later by Natalie D. Richards
Finding It by Cora Carmack
A Little Too Far by Lisa Desrochers
E-books for review:
Always on My Mind by Jill Shalvis
The Redemption of Callie & Kayden by Jessica Sorensen
Purchased e-books:
Gone Country (Rough Riders #14) by Lorelei James
Redneck Romeo (Rough Riders #15) by Lorelei James
Burn (Breathless #3) by Maya Banks
[[I won this e-book on Twitter from Maya Banks. YAY!!]]
Lots of spicy, steamy romance on this book haul which reflects the type of reads I've been in the mood for lately. Did you guys get anything good? Let us know, okay?

 Happy reading,
Michelle (& Leslie)

  1. Oh so happy for you and the ARC! I hope you'll enjoy all your new books. Happy reading!

    here is mine

  2. Nice haul! I hope you love Of Beast and Beauty as much as I did. So far, it was my favorite read this year. I'd never even heard of Belle Epoque but that cover looks like it would be gorgeous in person. I'm going to check that out now!

  3. That's super exciting to get a Nalini Singh arc! Love her work so much.

    My STS post is here: The Book Bundle.


  4. Waaaa!!!! I am so envious! How did you get so lucky, Michelle? I have never won a single book giveaway. >,< Seeing Conjured in your haul makes my heart ache, I've put in a request for that a month ago but got disapproved. :C

    I've been hearing a lot of good stuff about Cora's work so maybe someday, I'm gonna read one of hers.

    Have fun reading!

  5. I've been really curious about Starters and Of beast and beauty :) Great haul and thanks for stopping by!

  6. I really want to read Belle Epoque and Of Beast and Beauty. I cannot wait to read both Conjured and Six Months Later. They both look so awesome. Great haul! Happy reading!

  7. I got Belle Epoque this week, too. I hope you love all your books. Thanks for stopping by! :)

  12. Of Beast and Beauty is wonderful! I hope you enjoy it as much as I loved it.
    And I've had my eyes on the Nalini Singh series. I should probably get to the first book already!
    Happy reading! :)

  13. Oh I'm so jealous, I want to read Of Beats and Beauty and Belle Epoque! Both covers are gorgeous and they sound like books I'd like. I don't know any other of these books, I may check them out!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog & happy reading!

  14. Great haul. Happy reading :)


  15. Look at those steamy covers. I see Starters received a new cover (although I think I liked the first cover - it was shiny if I remember right). And you've reminded me that I need to check out on e of Nalini Singh's books. Happy reading!

    Thanks for visiting my haul.

  16. Lots of great covers! Of Beast and Beauty is on my list, I can't resist a re-telling. Conjured looks interesting, too. I'll have to add it to my list.

  18. I picked up and carried Starters through Barnes and Noble on Thursday. I didn't get it, but I'll probably pick it up once I read a few more reviews. :)

    Lots of awesome books. Have fun with those!

  20. I've heard good things about The Redemption of Callie and Kayden - I hope you enjoy it. Of Beast and Beauty looks really good too.

    Here's my round up of the week.

  21. "Belle Epoque"'s cover really is beautiful. For some reason, when seeing this book next to "Of Beasts and Beauty", I thought of the classics, the fairy tales. "Burn" looks really interesting, too. Congrats for winning all those books! :)
