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.
We skipped this post last week, but we are back! It’s kind of a pain to put this post together, so when you don’t have many books, it’s kind of better to let them roll over into the following week. And I still don’t have a lot of books, but I have enough to make this post worthwhile.
I don’t know if you knew, but Saturday (today) is my birthday. That means lots of fun gifts from blogger friends that I love more than anything on earth. Seriously. I am flabbergasted that it too me until my thirties to find friends that are basically reflections of me. Book people are my people. And I am so thankful to have them in my life, even though I only get to see them a couple times a year.

E-Books for Review:
The Troop by Nick Cutter (Thanks to Gallery Books)
Hello! Long time no see! I have been using all of my free time searching for a job, filling in as a substitute babysitter for a family searching for long term help, and searching for a new apartment (hotel living is, shall we say, lacking). Certain days, I feel horrible, and others, I am determined to do what it takes to secure an occupation. Outside of that, I have very little happening in my universe.
Book-wise, I think I have a nice little haul, three week’s worth of book booty.
Clayton wanted to dominate the picture and kept knocking the books over. >:(

On the blog this past week:
Thursday, I posted a four star review for In the After by Demitria Lunetta.
Links we love:
Jamie at The Perpetual Page Turner and Betty at Book Rock Betty are taking back their childhoods and reading Harry Potter together for the first time and sharing it with their readers through a series of fun posts and vlogs!
Kat Kennedy at Cuddlebuggery is hilarious once again, this time in a post about what to do now that you are in the Goodreads one percent.
Gillian at Writer of Wrongs has this new feature called Baking the Books where she cooks food from novels she’s read. This week it is fortune cookies from Cinder.
Giselle at Xpresso Reads shares some random facts about herself in this week’s Book Girls Don’t Cry, and I had to share because we have a couple in common.
Upworthy breaks down the percentage of children’s books featuring or about people of diversity. Despite the push for cultural diversity in literature aimed at young people, the stats are very disturbing.
