Stacking the Shelves is hosted at Tynga’s Reviews
 
It’s been a slow couple of weeks around here. I only got one review copy in the mail, and the e-galleys haven’t exactly been flowing either, but the main reason for that is I am trying to stop requesting so much. It’s gotten out of hand. At this point I don’t know if I will ever be able to catch up. I am hoping I can someday. But with BEA looming, I have completely stopped requesting EVERYTHING because I know the suitcase of books I will be bringing back is going to stress me out if I can’t keep up with it. As a result, I have a baby haul and it’s two weeks worth of books. So I call that a win.

  1. I can understand why you’re not requesting as many books Kara, I’m trying to cut down too, just take a chill and read what I’ve got. The e-galleys aren’t that appealing at the moment I think, so it’s slightly easier than expected; I hope you have a great reading week Kara 😀

    • That is what I am hoping to do, too. It’s like I request all these galleys because I want to read them, but then when it comes time to actually read them, I am not nearly as excited as I was before. BLAHHH.

  2. You’ve been very good, Kara! I am trying to make myself request less books, as well, even if I won’t be able to make it to BEA *cries a little*. My exams start the same week as the BEA, and I think my professors won’t think it’s a valid excuse to go to NYC to hang out with bloggers, authors and publishers rather than showing up to those exams.

    I already read The Forever Song, and I thought it was awesome. I hope you’ll love it, too!

    I hope you’ve had a great weekend.

    • I am so sorry you can’t come to BEA this year. Exams are more important, but man, the timing just stinks.

      So glad that you liked The Forever Song. The reviews I have seen so far were pretty meh.

  3. I keep meaning to get around to reading Midwinterblood but White Crow sounds just as good! The Velvet Room sounds fantastically fun too. Enjoy your new reads!
