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.
Last week I skipped doing a haul because I only had two books. This week I’ve been overloaded. I’ve been looking up at the sky just to make sure no more books fall on my head, chucked via an unseen source. I have a big pile of physical books, some e-books, and even a book I purchased that was a steal for Kindle. You know it will be years before I can get to that one. At any rate, it’s time for the books.
Glitter and Glue: A Memoir by Kelly Corrigan (unsolicited) Books about mothers are not usually my thing but I read the first page and I think I will like the voice so I will try it!
Something Real by Heather Demetrios (requested from pub) I requested this from Macmillan. I’m trying to read more contemporary, always, and this one sounds right up my alley. Thank you!
I got a big package from Harper Collins last week. One of the books was one I requested, but the other three were unsolicited. Though I am excited about reading them.
Evertrue by Brodi Ashton (unsolicited) I read Everneath and very much enjoyed it but I still need to read Everbound. I bought it a while back though so I might be able to review this one in time.
Her Dark Curiosity by Megan Shepherd (unsolicited) I was told not to read The Madman’s Daughter because of the animal violence. But now I will be reading it because I have this to review. Which is fine because part of me wanted to try it anyway.
Dangerous Women by Various Authors (unsolicited) Holy crap at the size of this one. I really want to read it but when am I supposed to fit THAT in? I will admit that I am intrigued though. There are some GREAT authors in there.
Subway Love by Nora Raleigh Baskin (not pictured)
Three Bird Summer by Sara St. Antoine
