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 an ARC from Abrams & Chronicle for GENA/FINN by Hannah Moskowitz and Kat Helgeson, which I’m eager to read because it’s about two people who become best friends online, like me and Jamie! Thanks to ArmchairBEA, I also won copies of SUNBOLT and MEMORIES OF ASH by Intisar Khanani.
The incredible, wonderful, beautiful Erin Summerill sent me an ARC of EVER THE HUNTED and some swag! I cried.
I went on a bit of a shopping spree in Waterstones, buying THE UNEXPECTED EVERYTHING by Morgan Matson, THE SQUARE ROOT OF SUMMER by Harriet Reuter Hapgood, PASSENGER by Alexandra Bracken, THE GIRL OF INK & STARS by Kiran Millwood Hargrave (signed!) and HALF LOST by Sally Green (also signed!). Finally, I also got my FairyLoot box, which held a bunch of swag and a copy of RUINED by Amy Tintera.
I received a copy of YOU KNOW ME WELL by David Levithan and Nina LeCours for review; thanks St. Martin’s! I received a copy of THE V GIRL by Mya Robarts for review as I am part of the blog tour! I had requested LUCKY STRIKES by Louis Bayard a while ago and got approved for that on NetGalley; thanks Henry Holt!
I went to the Raven King tour in Michigan and met Maggie Stiefvater so I picked up an extra copy of THE RAVEN KING which you can win on my blog, Books and Ladders! As well, I got the special art wrap which is gorgeous in person.
I SPLURGED at Chapters man. SPLURGED. I went in to pick up my pre-order of GIRL AGAINST THE UNIVERSE by Paula Stokes and ended up buying FIVE BOOKS. *hides in shame* but in my defense, I got 5x the points, a $10 savings card, AND I donated $10 to the Alberta Wildfire Relief. The books I picked up were:
- LIES WE TELL OURSELVES by Robin Talley
- DEMON KING by Cinda Williams Chima
- THESE BROKEN STARS by Meagan Spooner and Ami Kaufman
- CRYSTAL KINGDOM by Amanda Hocking
- LEGACY OF KINGS by Eleanor Herman
