Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. It is a weekly meme to showcase the books we have bought, borrowed, received for review, or were given as a gift. As well, we will tell you a bit about the past week and what to expect in the upcoming week!
I managed to not buy any books this week… THIS IS AN ACHIEVEMENT. I came so close, too! I added at least five to my Amazon basket throughout the week.
That’s all a lie.
I also have review copies for Terry Maggert’s HALFWAY DEAD and HALFWAY BITTEN, which have cool covers by the way! I also received ARCs of LOVE, LIES AND SPIES by Cindy Anstey and THE BLOOD OF THE HYDRA by Michelle Madow for upcoming blog tours (no, I haven’t stopped altogether signing up for them, just being more discerning).
Finally, my large pouch thingamabob arrived from Society6, and it has officially become the holder of all bloggy things. I have my two diaries, a bunch of pens and my bullet journal inside, and it is Perfect.
I received an eARC of DAYBREAK RISING by C.K. Oliver for review which I should be getting to relatively soon. I also received a copy of THE ONLY THING WORSE THAN ME IS YOU by Lily Anderson for review, which is added to my ARC April list! As well, I received a copy of SEER OF SOULS by Susan Faw. I also received two books from Month9Books for review: GENESIS GIRL by Jennifer Bardsley and IN THE SHADOW OF THE DRAGON KING by J. Keller Ford. I’m really excited to get to both of these titles, thanks to Month9Books for sending them to me! I won a copy of LIARS AND LOSERS LIKE US by Ami Allen-Vath on Instagram and received that in the mail this week along with a bookmark! Simon & Schuster Canada sent me a copy of I’M THINKING OF ENDING THINGS by Iain Reid which I’m pretty excited to read!
I received swag for A STUDY IN CHARLOTTE by Brittany Cavallaro, including a signed bookplate and bookmarks for the book! As well, I received swag for WALK THE EDGE by Katie McGarry, including a bookmark! Whitney from Imaginary Book Club sent me a LOVELY POST CARD. IT WAS GREAT.
