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.
It was another huge week for me this week. I actually got 4 physical books in the mail which is a record for me, I think. The best part is that I am expecting a lot more so hopefully next week will be a fun one too. Because we all love getting books in the mail. Aside from that, I got a late NetGalley approval from Scholastic, which was a bit weird because the book has already been published, but I went ahead and downloaded it and I hopefully can get to it soon. I don’t know. I’ll try. I’m swamped.
First up is this awesome book package I got from author Chris Howard that I won from the lovely ladies at Cuddlebuggery. Did I mention how much of a crush I have on this author? Cuz I do. Adorable, I tell you.
So, I got a t-shirt, a signed hardcover of the book Rootless, a signed and personalized book plate (I think that’s what that is), a signed bookmark, and a stack of unsigned bookmarks. As if I needed more! I will be doing a read-a-long for this book with Steph from Cuddlebuggery and maybe Christina from Reader of Fictions, so stay tuned for that and follow along with my Goodreads updates. If you are interested, of course.
See the photos below for the package in its entirety.
Then I got three other books! There was actually a 4th I just got this morning but I am saving that for next week since I had already taken the picture. For the record, I finally got my digital camera working. You can tell by the photo quality. My digital camera is a little aged but it still takes THE BEST pictures so I love it. Links to these books on Goodreads are below the photo.
The Archived by Victoria Schwab
Another thank you for Steph at Cuddlebuggery for sending me her ARC of this book. I wanted it so badly. And now I get a chance to read it too! I’ve heard great things about this one.
Scent of Darkness by Margot Berwin
This is for TLC Book Tours and I need to thank Pantheon and TLC for this lovely finished hardcover. This blog tour is going up in March I think so I have some time before I need to read this yet, but it’s a really short book so it shouldn’t take me long. And it is set in New Orleans and you all know this is my favorite setting, so WOOT!
Sky on Fire (Monument 14 #2) by Emmy Laybourne
This is the sequel to Monument 14. Which I didn’t love, but I liked it enough, and the ending left me reeling so I desperately needed book two. I think this one has the potential to be bad-ass though. I hope it is! Thanks to MacKids for this one. I can’t wait to read it.
The Fire Horse Girl by Kay Honeyman
So the reviews for this one are banging so far. I hate that expression. Why did I just use it? April at Good Books and Good Wine reviewed this and loved it. I requested it a LOOOONNNGGGG time ago and they finally just got around to approving me. So I’ll read it. But I don’t know when.
And that’s it for me this week. Leave me a link to your post and I will try and come visit. Until next week, happy, happy reading!
