Stacking the Shelves is hosted at Tynga’s Reviews.
 
I don’t know how I am still functioning, to be honest. I have had no time for anything this past week, and it’s only about to get worse. I am just warning you in advance. My schedule for next month is insane. I have FOUR manuscripts scheduled for editing, and I am still somehow supposed to find time to read and blog. I can’t imagine that I will blog a lot, so if we don’t post every day next month, please don’t hate us. And if you blame anyone, blame me. The good news is that we do have some blog tours pre-scheduled, so that will help, at least for the first part of the month.
 
I didn’t do a haul last week because I had no time and there weren’t enough books. I really wanted to do a vlog this week for you guys, but I ran out of time. I will try my hardest to do one for the next haul I do, but it just depends. AGHHH.

    OMG you got Bleed Like Me!!! I requested it, but haven’t been approved or declined yet. I have an ARC of Kiss of Deception and can’t wait to get to it. It sounds awesome!! I really want to get myself a copy of Grasshopper Jungle. I have heard great things!! Fabulous haul hon!!

    • I did! I am actually shocked they approved me. I didn’t read her other book but I heard so many different things about it from my friends. I wasn’t originally interested in the plot of that one, but when I heard the plot of THIS one, I had to have it.

  2. Kiss of Deception sounds good and I loved the first book from Jenna Fox, so I can’t wait to read something else from her. The glass casket is HIGH on my wish list. Fairy tales <3 and I’ve heard some good things about it. Enjoy!

  3. I really enjoyed The Glass Casket, like I just read it yesterday. It’s a bit odd, but literary and quite good. Hope you enjoy it too!

    Also, so pumped up for Kiss Of Deception. It looks legit.

    Happy reading!

  4. I’m really interested in Landry Park but have yet to read it. Looking forward to reading what you have to say about it! When you get around to it of course, Miss Busy. 🙂
