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.
Another week, another haul. This one isn’t that big but has some good stuff and might be one of the most eclectic haul posts I have ever written. Small physical haul but some Christmas gifts have started to come in and that’s super fun too! This is two weeks of books, so it might seem like a lot but spread out it’s not so much. Which I am thankful for as it allows me to catch up some. And I have been doing fairly well with that.
Lost Lake by Sarah Addison Allen
Thank you to St. Martin’s Press for this. I feel so lucky to have gotten a copy to read early. I already have this pre-ordered too!
Don’t Call Me Baby by Gwendolyn Heasley
Guy in Real Life by Steve Brezenoff
After the End by Amy Plum
The Cabinet of Curiosities by Various Authors
Harper Teen added a new pile of galleys this week on Edelweiss and I tried to be good and only picked these four. I have so many to read already. BUT I AM ALMOST THERE.
Salt by Danielle Ellison
Entangled Teen sent out this galley this week. I am not sure if I will like this one as it sounds a little too romance focused for me. But I will attempt it and just DNF if it doesn’t work. I am doing that a lot lately. I’m thinking of starting the DNF roundups again.
This is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith
Another lovely gift, this time from Amy at Book Loving Mom who is pretty much the sweetest person ever. She got me this for Christmas off of my Amazon wishlist.

Links We Love:
This post that was pointed out to child-free me, entitled To the Women Who Choose Not to Have Kids. I loved it.
Over on The Bookaholic, Pixie has a discussion post about what makes someone a true fan.
Hanna at The Irish Banana Review has started a new feature about ARC questions. She interviews a publicist from Bloomsbury, a publisher that has always been a bit of an enigma to me. Not anymore!
This week’s Cover Snark over at a Reader of Fictions. I never miss a post. SO MANY covers this week.
