Stacking the Shelves (#80)


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 29th to Saturday, July 5th?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:



A huge thanks to both ladies, for sending me swag!


From NetGalley:



SO EXCITED TO READ THIS ONE!! Thank you, Skyscape!


From Amazon (from my Kindle):



I pre-ordered this one! I'm not usually one for novellas, but I do enjoyed Redwine's books :D


So, this week was busy. My first week at work! I love my job. But if you follow me on Twitter, then you probably saw what happened on Thursday night. Scary. And then Friday, Independence Day here in the States! BBQs and fireworks galore!

And today, July 5th! It's actually my 19th birthday. Last year, I actually did a whole post about my birthday, and made it into a mini celebration and giveaway. I was going to do something similar this year, but after Thursday night, I really didn't have the heart to do it. But in all seriousness, thank you all so much for being here, for following me, for reading my posts, for putting up with my quick tongue and brutal honesty. All of you have my respect, and my gratitude. Thank you <3
