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 was a pretty good week in physical books. Up until today I had not received any e-books, and then this morning I got approved for a request that I had pretty much assumed was going to go unanswered. I am very excited but man, could you not have approved me sooner? Because now I am even further behind. GAH. Okay, but I’m really excited and I already downloaded it to Kindle so there will be no expiration of THAT galley.
As far as personal stuff goes, this was another rough week for me. I’d love to chat about it more, but I am really trying to move on from what happened and heal. I am trying to maintain a positive outlook and focus on the happiness and excitement I have coming up. BEA! Book Bash and Disney with Karina and Laura! Christina’s visit! Vacation to New Jersey! Dan almost being off for the summer! There is a lot of fun stuff coming up to look forward to. I think my summer is more packed than a summer has ever been. Which, if I may be honest, makes me slightly uncomfortable being the hermit that I am, but fuck it. I am really trying to get out more and be more of an extrovert. I will never completely be that person but I do need to find a happy medium.
Okay, I think I rambled long enough. It’s time for the booooookksssss.
For review from Macmillan Children’s Publishing, I received ARCs of Tumble and Fall by Alexandra Coutts and This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales. Thanks to them and I am so excited to read both of these.
From my lovely, Kriston Johnson, I received my editor’s copy of Awakened. It’s so pretty! Thanks, Kriston, and thanks for the lovely acknowledgement.
Finally, from my dear friend Jenni at Alluring Reads, I received her ARC of The 5th Wave and I read it already and reviewed it here. It got 4 stars from me, in case you were wondering.
And in e-books this week, I got approved for a copy of Ghost Bride by Yangsze Choo. This is the one I was whining about up at the top of the page. Still really happy to have it though! And I’m only whining because I am already so behind. I over requested again. FML.
And that’s it for me in books this week! Leave me a comment and I will come visit your haul. Until next week…you know the drill.
I didn’t think I would have a haul this week, but due to graduation last Saturday, everyone was feeling a little generous, and I was able to pick up some great finds at the used bookstore. The new release shelf was so tempting, it hurt. I also have a wonderful ARC to share, and some new Kindle books. I don’t have much to add. It was a highly emotional week towards the end, and I hope to have a steady job by the end of next week. I am also moving, and I will be more than happy to share how many boxes of books we have moved out of this apartment. So, without any further, ado, here is my wonderful haul for the week.
The Flame in the Mist by Kit Grindstaff – Awww, yeah! I wanted this book in the worst way, and I was lucky that I found it last week. I’m really looking forward to reading this book.
Reboot by Amy Tintera – After seeing a few reviews pop up for this book, I was curious about Reboot. I found it used, thankfully!
Loki’s Wolves by K.L. Armstrong and M.A. Marr – YES! I OWN IT!! The pictures really add to this story!
The Divide by Elizabeth Kay – An enticing middle grade book. I have had my eye on this one for a while.
I Bring the Fire Part I: Wolves by C. Gockel – I found this by browsing for “Loki” on Amazon’s website. I figured it couldn’t hurt to give this book a chance. It looks so freaking awesome!
Suicide Watch by Kelley York – This was suggested to me by a fellow blogger (I can’t remember who it was – please claim credit!). This book was featured on a TTT, and it sounded like a wonderful addition to my own book collection.
Ink by Amanda Sun – The Holy Terror read this one and loved it, so I thought it would be nice to try to pick it up. Thank you, NetGalley, for approving me!
