Stacking The Shelves is hosted at 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!


This past week I managed to relax a bit because I took monday and tuesday off work.
I have been reading more and totally addicted to Sims Freeplay on my phone.
I also managed to request two new books!

Stillhouse Lake (Stillhouse Lake #1)
by Rachel Caine

Gina Royal is the definition of average—a shy Midwestern housewife with a happy marriage and two adorable children. But when a car accident reveals her husband’s secret life as a serial killer, she must remake herself as Gwen Proctor—the ultimate warrior mom.

With her ex now in prison, Gwen has finally found refuge in a new home on remote Stillhouse Lake. Though still the target of stalkers and Internet trolls who think she had something to do with her husband’s crimes, Gwen dares to think her kids can finally grow up in peace.

But just when she’s starting to feel at ease in her new identity, a body turns up in the lake—and threatening letters start arriving from an all-too-familiar address. Gwen Proctor must keep friends close and enemies at bay to avoid being exposed—or watch her kids fall victim to a killer who takes pleasure in tormenting her. One thing is certain: she’s learned how to fight evil. And she’ll never stop.

This book seems to have all the ingredients to make this a very exciting read for me. A serial killer, a strong mother and a mystery. When I requested it I didn’t know it was the first book in a series but who knows maybe it’s one I will be following, we’ll see.


The Final Correction (Condition, #3)
by Alec Birri

A trilogy of dystopian novels based on the author’s own experience of commanding a top secret government unit.

What if all brain disorders were treatable? No one would lament the passing of dementia or autism, but what if the twisted mind of a sex-offender or murderer could be cured too? Or how about a terrorist or maybe a political extremist? What if we could all be ‘corrected’?

So, Professor Savage has been unmasked as the monster Alex Salib always knew he was. But what was their agreement and why is she still determined to see it through? The war on terror appears to be back on track but why does President Kalten seem hell bent on ramping it up – are the Americans seriously intent on starting World War Three?

And what of the treatment itself? Despite Savage’s arrest, the ‘corrections’ go on but to what end? The laws of unintended consequences are about to cause a seismic shift in the very nature of our existence. But then our new masters know that and won’t let it happen until we’re ready…

…Ready to accept the unacceptable.

This ebook is the third in the Condition trilogy by Alec Birri. The first two tiles, A Medical Miracle and The Curing Begins, are also available to purchase from all major ebook retailers.

I finally have all three books so I look forward to reading them all in sequence!


And that’s it for this week!
