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!
Starting around now, you can expect to see the occasional business book show up. I’m gearing up for September, when I’ll start my MBA, and I have a lot of prep work and reading to do! This week, I bought MINDSET: HOW YOU CAN FULFIL YOUR POTENTIAL by Carol S. Dweck on Kindle, and I got THE CASE STUDY HANDBOOK: HOW TO READ, DISCUSS, AND WRITE PERSUASIVELY ABOUT CASES by William Ellet in paperback. I usually take fantastic care of my books, but I have a feeling this latter one is going to be pretty worn by next August!
I also received a few ARCs: GLITTER by Aprilynne Pike, THE SUMMER THAT MELTED EVERYTHING by Tiffany McDaniel and A HOLD ON ME and BEYOND YOUR TOUCH by Pat Esden. (Pat will also be joining in #NAAugust, starting in a week!) I also received DISRUPTION by Jessica Shirvington from Harper360, which I’m excited to read soon.
Finally, I may have also bought a few books on Kindle. I got THE DREAMCATCHER and THE DIVIDE by E.J. Mellow after loving THE DREAMER, and I plan on reading these for NA August. I also bought DAEMONEUM by Laney McMann and LOVE SONG by Sophia Bennett. This last one, I already own, but I’m giving it away on my blog to free up shelf space and replacing it with a digital copy so I can keep it with me foreverrrr!
