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 received a copy of INHERITED by Freedom Matthews to review (and you might be able to get one as well here!), as well as FINDING LONDON by Ellie Wade and EVER THE HUNTED by Erin Summerill. (So freaking excited about that last one…I cried…) I won an ARC of A HOLD ON ME by Pat Esden, which arrived as well!
I gave into temptation a few times this week and bought PUDDLE JUMPING by Amber L. Johnson, THE SEDUCTION OF KINLEY FOSTER by Lisa Wells (don’t give me that look), ADULTHOOD IS A MYTH by Sarah Andersen, KINGDOM FROM ASHES by Megan Linski and THE GLASS MERMAID by Poppy Lawless. (Those last two were free.) After reviewing an eARC of RECOIL by Joanne Macgregor, I immediately bought the Kindle edition and preordered the next book, REFUSE. One of my boxes for this month arrived and had a copy of WHEN WE COLLIDED by Emery Lord.
For personal development reasons, I bought THE 7 HABITS OF HIGHLY EFFECTIVE PEOPLE: INTERACTIVE EDITION by Stephen R. Covey. You’ll probably see more businessy books appear in the coming months because… I’m doing an MBA in September!!! EEK.
My pre-orders of SUMMER DAYS AND SUMMER NIGHTS edited by Stephanie Perkins and THE CROWN’S GAME by Evelyn Skye came in. While I was picking them up, I noticed a SUPER EARLY copy of THE LAST STAR by Rick Yancey so I picked it up but I have plans to return it once I finish because I already have a pre-order on it’s way to me. BUT I HAD TO KNOW.
I went to the Rochester Teen Book Festival this weekend and met some great authors! I will have a full recap up on my blog tomorrow so you can check that out if you’d like. While there I purchased BOOK WICKED, STAR CURSED, and SISTER’S FATE by Jessica Spotswood so she could sign them for me!
