Stacking The Shelves #30 - Bought, Borrowed & Bagged #14

Saturday, November 12, 2016

Stacking The Shelves is hosted by Tynga´s Reviews and is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

I am also connecting with Bought Borrowed & Bagged in homage of Barron´s Books & Baubles from Karen Marie Moning´s smash hit series, Fever, hosted by Braine at Talk Supe.

Well, well – guess I was a good girl this week *laugh*. Only one book I purchased and that didn´t cost me much money. I was thinking about getting this book for weeks now, and when I figured out that I still had an audible credit left to use and saw that it was already available as an audio book and had listened to the audio sampler – I bought it right away *laugh*.

Since two of my requested books are still either stuck in the wrong place or on their way to me because the publisher sent them straight to the admin I am writing my German reviews for - instead of sending them directly to me - and they didn´t arrive with Today´s mail; I can only present one book. What a waste of time and money - the wrong sending I mean.

Good, things happen and I am not running out of reading stuff, that´s for sure *smile*

Bought books

She used to work for the U.S. government, but very few people ever knew that. An expert in her field, she was one of the darkest secrets of an agency so clandestine it doesn´t even have a name. And when they decided she was a liability, they came for her without warning. Now she rarely stays in the same place or uses the same name for long. They´ve killed the only other person she trusted, but something she knows still poses a threat. They want her dead, and soon. When her former handler offers her a way out, she realizes it´s her only chance to erase the giant target on her back. But it means taking one last job for her ex-employers. To her horror, the information she acquires only makes her situation more dangerous.  Resolving to meet the threat head-on, she prepares for the toughest fight of her life but finds herself falling for a man who can only complicate her likelihood of survival. As she sees her choices being rapidly whittled down, she must apply her unique talents in ways she never dreamed of.

Happy reading

I am Vi, avid reader, book blogger and painter who loves to talk and write about books. A day without one in my hands is a wasted one. Skilled florist with a degree in writing - oh yes, that works. I like many genres, but horror is nothing for me! Have fun.


  1. I'm looking forward to getting my hands on this one!! Happy Reading :)

    1. Hi Raven, if the book keeps going as the extract read, then this book is one hell of a great one - I only need to decide which edition I am going to buy in print: Original oder German edition *laugh*

      Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Hi Vi!

    This looks so good!
    I loved The Host--even better than the Twilight Books! So I can't wait to read this one!

    1. Hi Abbie, I haven´t read The Host - only know the movie - but I read the excerpt of this one and that was awesome! Thanks a lot for stopping by.

  3. I need this book, I'll probably buy it next month. Have a nice week.

    1. Hi, oh yes, I definitely need the print edition as well! But listen to the audio is quite something too. Thanks for stopping by

  4. Your book is new to me. I hadn't heard of it. I hope you love it as well.

  5. Nice! One book is definitely an accomplish - you can catch up on others! It's been so long since Meyer published anything. I hope this book does not disappoint. I hope you your new book, Vi!

    Have a fabulous week. :)

    Check out my STS post!

    1. Hi Alyssa, thanks for stopping by. So far I can´t complain. Definitely going to buy the printed edition as well. Happy reading.

  6. I actually didn't know Stephenie Meyer had anew book out, Vi. I hope you'll enjoy this one!
    And I also hope you'll get your ARCs soon :)
    Have a wonderful Wednesday and happy reading.

    1. Seems a lot of people didn´t know about it. Makes me wonder since it is a world premiere. Thanks for stopping by.
