Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.
It’s been a great week in books! I got a couple for review, and I even made a couple purchases. (I shouldn’t have.) Wahhh-wahhh. For our regular readers, we will be moving to WordPress sometime, hopefully, by the end of this month! And a new design will be following shortly after that. So stay tuned. There are some big changes coming up around here! And just in time for BEA too!
 
For Review:
 
 
For a blog tour with TLC. Thank you to HarperCollins! REALLY excited about this one. I am obsessed with Chernobyl.
 
 
Thank you to FirstSecond Books! This one is shorter than I thought it would be!
 
Great by Sara Benincasa
 
Thank you for the lovely finished copy, HarperCollins! I will be diving into this one shortly!
 
Purchased:
 
Imaginary Girls by Nova Ren Suma
 
This is for an upcoming Forgotten Fridays readalong with Pixie and Jessie. Looking forward to it, girls!
 
 
I’ve wanted this book since I heard about it and saw the cover. It will probably be ages before I can read it, but I am glad I have it!

Bekka here. 🙂  I am a little embarrassed by this haul.  I kind of went overboard on the spending and I seriously have to cut down.  This is me declaring an official book-buying ban (excepting pre-orders already made) from today until after BEA.  I need to be held accountable.
 
 
For Review
In the Shadows by Kiersten White and Jim Di Bartolo – I took a quick glance at this one and holy crap, you guys, it’s absolutely beautiful.
Purchased
I had a Nook gift card, some e-book settlement money, and of course, I blew up my wallet, too.

  1. Oooo, I’m excited for the move and new design, definitely have to keep a look out for that girls.
    I’ve heard great things about All the Boys so far, so hopefully when you get to it you’ll love it Kara!
    I have to say Bekka, I got Gone Girl this week too, there must be something in the air, and I can really relate to buying too many books, I’m not banning myself, but chilling out on them instead.
    Great collection girls and hope you enjoy reading them! 🙂

  2. Moving and a new design, exciting! I can’t wait to see what you girls are up to 😀

    I’ve heard some mixed things about Great, but everyone I follow has been raving about To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. It does sounds good! Midnight thief & Mortal danger are both high on my wish list.

    I need to read Gilded ashes 😀 Cruel beauty is one of my favorite books from this year. I also need to get started in The false prince, sounds like a good story.

    Happy reading!

    Oh how exciting that you are making the move to WordPress. I am going to stick with blogger for now since I don’t really have the time to get used WP if I make the switch. I really want to get To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. It sounds like a fantastic book. I have Mortal Danger for review as well and can’t wait for it.

    Bekka, OMG so many awesome books!! Last week I had a big haul with books I got with my ebook settlement money. I have been trying to be better about not buying so many books too. I did get Gilded Ashes though since I loved Cruel Beauty.

    I hope you girls enjoy all your new books and HAPPY EASTER!!
