Stacking the Shelves: colliding with soul thiefs in the shadows makes for a bloody mess

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews to showcase all the books we got in the past week. Those can be bought, won, gifted, for review, borrowed, print or ebooks... no matter, just share what you got :)

This was a very ebooky week for me! No matter though, I'm going to London next week and I already know that I'm going to buy too many books >.<

For review from Netgalley

A Really Awesome Mess, by Trish Cook and Brendan Halpin
Delia's Shadow, by Jaime Lee Moyer

I loved Cook&Halpins first book, Notes From the Blender, so when this one was a 'read now' on Netgalley I just had to have it!
I'd highlighted Delia's Shadow as my WoW a couple weeks ago - the historical setting in San Francisco and the ghosts sound right up my alley :)


Dirty Blood, by Heather Hildenbrand
Soul Thief, by Jana Oliver
Collide, by Shelly Crane

I've had my eye on all of these for a while. I wanted to read Soul Thief right after reading The Demon Trapper's Daughter more than a year ago but was waiting for the price to drop. Two nights ago I decided I was tired of waiting and bought it anyway. The other two were freebies and I remembered reading good reviews, so I grabbed them :)

Have you heard of or read these books? What can you recommend? And what's new on your shelves this week?
By the way, I'm having a discussion about print vs. ebook buying patterns and there are also two giveaways going on, just check out the left sidebar :)


  1. Some nice additions there. I haven't seen any of these before. I particularly like the look of Soul Thief. Happy reading!
