Stacking the Shelves (#27)


Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews, in which bloggers share the books and swag they've received in the past week!


So, what did I get in the week of Sunday, June 23rd to Saturday, June 29th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


Thank you to Johns Hopkins University, for sending me The Other Wes Moore, my optional summer reading novel. I would have read it anyway, but there is a contest involved! YAY!

And thank you to Disney-Hyperion and Armchair BEA, for The Enchanter Heir. I haven't read any of the books in this series. But that's okay. My sister has read all three. She can have it ;)



Of Poseidon, Of Triton, and Degrees of Wrong bookmarks

Big thanks to Harlequin Teen - I won that copy from the blog tour.
A gigantic thanks to Anna Banks/Scarlett for Degrees of Wrong and the bookmarks. I read that book about a year ago, and loved it SO MUCH. Seriously. You should go buy it. It's AMAZING. One of my favorite books of all time.



The coolest bookmark with a sword on the end!

Thank you to author Angela McCallister, for the great bookmark and $5 Amazon e-gift card! I won both at the #CovetBash on Twitter about a week ago.



Thank you, St. Martin's Griffin!

And that was my week! 

Today, June 29th, is my 6-month blogoversary! I was debating on whether or not to do something special (i.e., giveaway), but my birthday is in less than a week. Birthday... 6-month blogoversary... graduation... nearly 2000 total blog followers.... nearly 50,000 pageviews... over 300 posts... first ARCs sent directly by publishers... 

Yeah, I have a lot to celebrate. And much of it is thanks to you all, my amazing followers, page-viewers, and commenters! But not the birthday part. Or graduation.

Love you all!

  10. That is an INCREDIBLE bookmark! I think it might even inspire me not to lose it (no easy feat), especially since stepping on it, shoeless, in the dark, would not be a good time.
