Welcome to Stacking the Shelves! Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Team Tynga’s Reviews. This is where we showcase books we have received or bought during the week.
Before I get started on the books I’ve acquired this week, I just wanted to let y’all know that Lyn will be back to posting more as soon as she can. She’s still trying to stay with me, but her life has been extremely busy lately and some important job stuff has come up. When she has a little more time, she’ll be posting more, I am sure.
This week I got two review books in the mail and I received a shipment I ordered from Amazon that you may have seen me squeeing about last week. It’s the best Amazon order I’ve ever placed and I know I know what I ordered, but I was still really excited anyway to hold them in my hands.
Someone on Twitter mentioned BEA is in 9 weeks. 9 weeks until I am on a plane by myself, freaking out. 9 weeks until I am in the middle of a claustrophobic crowd and panicking. But at least I get to see my friends. That’s the upside.
I’ve also just learned that Amazon has acquired Goodreads, and though I’m not thrilled about it, I’m also not going to split a vein either. Amazon bought Shelfari in 2008 and nothing changed. So maybe not that much will be altered. I hope. So I’m not leaving Goodreads, in case you were wondering. At least not yet. I want to see what changes they make first. Though I will say I am a bit worried they will enact even more review censorship on the site.
But enough on that for now. Life must continue. On to the books.

Pretty great haul, huh? I’m excited about reading them if I ever get to them. I should be reading Fly by Night fairly soon as Lyn and I are doing a read-a-long for that when we have time. But the rest? Who knows? Leave me a comment and I will try to stop by your posts! I expect next week to be a fairly slow one as I don’t know if I have anything coming, but we will see. Happy reading!
