Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books we are adding to our shelves, whether they be physical or digital. This includes books bought (my wife would say I buy too many), borrowed (a rare occurrence), and received for review (which I’m trying to reign in).
New Acquisitions: Paperback Treasures
Nothing new in the mailbox this week…
An quiet week on the review front, with only the 2 new additions.

Hematoma by Matteo Polk is A dangerous and erotic S&M vampire thriller filled with enigmatic characters, an enthralling plot, a secret vampire organization, and a plethora of blood, bruises, pain and pleasure in the kink department.
New Acquisitions: Digital Titles
A few interesting acquisitions on digital front this week . . .
Catalyst, book 1 of The Second Cycle by Solstice Locke, caught my eye with the promise of a steampunk world of enchantments and secrets, a slow-burn romance, and strong lesbian characters.
His Runaway Heart by K. Ramsuer is one I nearly skipped over based on the cover, but my eye caught the second line of the blurb – “He had no markings, no collar, no way for anyone to tell where he’s supposed to go.” – and I was immediately intrigued.
The Orb by James Missaglia, on the other hand, I clicked on precisely because of its striking cover. A dystopian future, an innocent woman, and a sadistic technician sounded interesting has me curious.
