Stacking the Shelves #4

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted over at Tynga's reviews. This meme allows us bloggers to tell you all about the books we have added to your shelves over the past seven days whether they be physical or virtual. This means we include books you can buy in a physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

We love sharing our books with you each week but more then that we loving seeing what books you get each week!! All links will take you to goodreads.

Sally's shelf

OK, so in keeping with my frankly appalling behaviour from last week, this week I ventured out and bought Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed. I confess I still haven't made the connection between these books and the Twilight Saga (aside from the fact that both female protagonists seem to be focused on their men and little else). What's more interesting is the reaction from women around you when they spot the book. They wink at you knowingly and then ask what page you're on. Give them a number and they'll nod appreciatively. It's as though these books have created an impromptu almost female only book club!


Bungle's shelf

This week my favourite Little Brown rep popped into the shop and left some amazing looking titles!! I was very good and just took two!!!!!! The first is The Diviners by Libba Bray, it's such a beautiful proof & I don't really think the photograph does it justice. The second book is general fiction but I just loved the cover & title, The Apothecary's Daughter by Charlotte Betts.
Now, I was really extra good and didn't buy any books this week, until yesterday!!!! I tried so hard but I was captivatingly enticed & I needed it!! Endure by Carrie Jones had to be bought to go with the other three books from the series :D (did you see what I did there;)















But that's enough about us! What did you add to your shelves this week?

I keep hearing about these shades of grey and all the excitement, winks, looks etc that ppl give each other when talking about them. I'm not sure what to think and have half a mind to read one myself and finally make my own opinion. I'll be interested to c what u think.

The other books look great! The covers alone look fab and I'm not sure how u managed to take only 2!!! U must have more self control than I do ;)

I'm not sure about reading The Shades of Grey series. Not sure its my thing.

Though The Diviners looks interesting. Think I'll be adding that to my TBR list :-)

Happy reading!
