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!
My friend Ben had some books lying in his boot (don’t ask) that he gave to me: THE LONG WAY TO A SMALL, ANGRY PLANET by Becky Chambers, CROW MOON by Anna McKerrow, ELSEWHERE by Gabrielle Zevin and an ARC of THE GIRL AT MIDNIGHT by Melissa Grey. He also gave me copies of some of his Oftomes publications: SECRETS IN PHOENIX and HOW I FOUND YOU by Gabriella Lepore, as well as GABRIEL AND THE SWALLOWS by Esther Dalseno. Another friend also gave me a copy of THE DARKEST TOUCH by Gena Showalter. Or rather, she said she didn’t want it and I grabbed it because I couldn’t resist. MUAHAHA. (Meanwhile, Dani is trying to get rid of books because she’s moving, so this is all very counterproductive.)
Two books for review were sent by MaximumPOP! Books: SING by Vivi Green and GIRL OUT OF WATER by Nat Luurtsema. (I finished the latter at 2:30am this morning and luuuurved it.) eARC-wise, I got: REFUSE by Joanne Macgregor, LIVE AND LET PSI by D.R. Rosensteel, YOU BEFORE ANYONE ELSE by Julie Cross and Mark Perini, NEVERNIGHT by Jay Kristoff, WHEN THE PROFESSOR GOT STUCK IN THE SNOW by Dan Rhodes (I don’t know why???) and LIFE AFTER JULIET by Shannon Lee Alexander.
Oh, and I gave in to a free Kindle book: NOT QUITE DATING by Catherine Bybee. 😀
