Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and every week bloggers post about books they’ve added to their bookshelves! This includes books bought through a physical store, online store, eBooks, books borrowed from the library/a friend and gifts.
The Harlequin Summit was on Wednesday and my was it awesome! Other than hear about Harlequin's awesome future releases later this year, I also got to meet many great Aussie bloggers. Finally got to put faces to names and I must admit I was a bit weirded out as I'd always associated bloggers with their twitter avatars. It was actually quite funny as I didn't know anybody's names (I don't think anybody did) and we all went around asking for people's twitter handles; you could practically see the light bulb go off when the blog name/twitter handle was said :D
Rachel Vincent, author of the Soul Screamers, Shifters and Unbound series was present as the guest author and she talked about her books as well as answered questions.
Harlequin also gave us all a bag of insanely amazing goodies along with an awesome umbrella!
- Saving Grace by Fiona McCallum (Adult Contemporary/Australian Country) - Can't say I'm particularly excited about this lol as the whole genre isn't my style. But we'll see
- Wicked Kiss (Nightwatchers #2) by Michelle Rowen (Paranormal) - I haven't read the first one yet haha but I did also get the ebook of book 1
- With All My Souls (Soul Screamers #7) by Rachel Vincent (Paranormal) - the final book in the Soul Screamers series. I'm still on book 1 lol but I am excited for this. Team Nash forever!
- The Eternity Cure (Blood of Eden #2) by Julie Kagawa (Dystopia) - eeeeeep I haven't finished The Immortal Rules yet but I AM excited to finish it and start this! I know how lucky I am to get the ARC for this as I've been told it's hard to get ARCs for Julie's books. I absolutely LOVE her writing.
Woah those are all either JUST released or ARCs/to be released so I feel extremely privileged to have gotten these books!
Also... see that key in the middle? It's a USB containing like FIFTEEN eBooks. Yes you heard right, 15!
Those are all new romance releases from Harlequin's new romance imprint, Escape Publishing.
Her Man from Shilo by Robyn Rychards, A Man Like Mike by Sami Lee, Falling for the Lawyer by Anna Clifton, The Portal by S.E. Gilchrist, The Convict's County Bride by Lena Dowling, Makeover Miracle by Charmaine Ross, Under the Hood by Juanita Kees, His Brand of Beautiful by Lily Malone and A Father at Last by Julie Mac
