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!
Again, I’m light on the books, but I have got a couple of ARCs! I received THE HOUSE IN QUILL COURT by Charlotte Betts from Little, Brown Book Group, BLOOD OF THE PROPHET by Kat Ross, as well as downloading TIMEKEEPER by Tara Sim from Edelweiss.
I also bought a book I first stole from my mom when I was 12, MAD ABOUT THE BOY by Maggie Alderson. I KNOW. It has a car blowjob scene so YEAH. See what I meant in the discussion post on Friday about how teens will find books whether you want them to or not? I’m so curious to read it now to see if I’ll enjoy it as much. (This just made me realise… my mom knew I took the book, and she didn’t stop me. Wow, Mom, progressive!)
I received for review:
- A TRAGIC KIND OF WONDERFUL by Eric Lindstrom
- STALKING JACK THE RIPPER by Kerri Manscalco (which was wonderful and already on it’s way to Dani)
- TIMEKEEPER by Tara Sim
