Stacking the Shelves (#126)


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, May 17th to Saturday, May 23rd?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:



Thank you for the pretties, Random House! I'm excited to read both :D


From NetGalley:



I've never read anything by this author! This is an adult fiction novel and I'm excited!


YES! Small book haul! I need to do some catching up... if you missed it, this past week I did a marathon-reviewing challenge. I read/reviewed five YA contemporary novels in five days! Definitely check out all five reviews, including the last one of P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han!

  1. High five for the small haul! I fail miserably when I try. The House of Shattered Wings sounds awesome! I hope you enjoy it! Happy reading!

  2. That's great about knocking out all those books for the challenge. I caught your great review.

    Personally, I need to have smaller hauls for a while until I catch up on my huge review pile. It's actually one of my New Year's Resolutions. I'm doing better about saying no, but still have some ground to make up. ;)

    1. Right?! I'm really excited about this week's success! And OMG SERIOUSLY THOUGH... I've been cutting back, but the unsolicited mail is what is getting to me. I feel the need to read everything sent to me, solicited or unsolicited! That can't happen though. LOL

  3. I'm also working on trying to keep my additions small in number. Great that you managed to do so this week. I like the cover of The House of Shattered Wings. I'm going to check this book out.

    Happy Reading and hope you're having a good weekend.

  9. Ooh, the Reawakening looks good, and love the cover on the Blind Wish. I don't believe I've ever hear of the Jinni Wars series, but I see you gave the first book 4 stars, so I think I'll have to check it out!

  13. I've fallen behind on reviews (again). I've not been much in a reading mood. I've been too busy messing with my bookshelves and obsessing over trade books! haha
