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.
I had every intention of this being a slow book week. It started out that way. Really, it did. I got one book and I thought that was going to be it. But then I remembered I had a couple of things coming from friends. And then I got some books for review, one of which was a complete surprise. Then I got two e-galley approvals–I really should stop requesting those as I cannot keep up. But I have no willpower. It’s a character flaw. At any rate, I got 8 books this week. I need some serious help. I also got another shipment of candles and some Yerba Mate tea that I haven’t even cracked the package on yet.
Let’s just go to the books before it gets really ugly.
