Welcome to Stacking the Shelves. Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga at Tynga’s Reviews. This is where we showcase books we have received or bought during the week.
This week I didn’t get anything in the mail, but I got approved for a couple of e-books that I am really exited about. Edelweiss put up a ton of books this week for request and I ignored them all because most of them had January release dates and I already have too many arcs as it is for that month. Same thing with February. I did, however, re-request Mila 2.0 after being declined, and because I updated my stats, they approved me. I’m not sure why but I was excited when they did! That made my day.
Here are the books:
Why: Well, I marked this one tbr on Goodreads a long time ago. As someone who is not a huge fan of historical, this one really intrigued me. I will read historical, but I am very particular about my choices. It’s all about the blurb, baby! I hope it’s as good as it sounds.
Why: I was sent a request for this by the author. She was fully aware of my policy on no self-published authors unless it is an author I know, but she took the time to explain herself and wrote me a really nice and personalized request promising me that if I didn’t like the book, she would totally be okay with that. How could I not approve her? And she’s right. This book is a great fit for my blog.
Why: Because it’s Mila 2.0? It’s one of my most-anticipated books of 2013. I was really bummed when I got declined the first time, but now that I am approved, I am anxious to get to it. I wish I didn’t have so many other books to read first because I really want to read it now. NOW. Ha.
And that’s it for me this week. They are starting to pile up again. Just when I get the review books whittled down, they start up again. It’s because I don’t know how to say no. Put a pretty cover in my face (or on my computer screen) and I become a drooling mess of a sucker. Leave me a link to your STS posts and I will come visit. Happy reading!
