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.
Hey, books! LEAVE ME ALONE. I thought I’d never say that, but after this week’s mail and all the ARC requests I have had to turn down, I cannot take one more book until I get caught up. The worst part is, I KNOW I have a package from Little, Brown coming on Monday (it was supposed to be here on Friday and I am shaking my fist at UPS.) This is what happens after you have been reviewing for a couple years, have established some solid publisher contacts, have no self control, and don’t read as fast as you used to. DON’T LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU. For the record, I am determined to still catch up. I WILL catch up. A new year is coming and that is time to turn over a new leaf and read fast. But until then, I am an asshole. But not on purpose. NEVER on purpose.
I didn’t even know about this one until this week but it sounded awesome so…
One of my favorite contemporary authors, right here. How can I pass this one up?
I don’t think I have read a YA series set in Vegas yet. This one sound like it could be Gossip Girl, Vegas style.
I have no idea what to think of this one, but I know I wanted to read it as soon as I heard about it. It could be epic and it could also go horribly wrong. Obvs, I hope it’s the first.
