Stacking the Shelves (#158)


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, December 27th to Saturday, January 2nd?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:



A lovely surprise from S&S - thank you! I loved Unhooked. Don't miss it!



Thank you, Penguin! I'm very excited to read this one.


I ♥ Chaol button
I Will Not Be Afraid button

I've developed a taste and NEED for these buttons! Thank you sooo much, Rachael and Lori, for these two. I'm just waiting on the I ♥ Dorian one, and my set of seven will be complete!


From Edelweiss:



I've actually already read and LOVED this book! Immediately after I downloaded it from Edelweiss, I read it. It is SO great (and I'm usually not a contemporary person)! HERE is a peek. This (full-length) novel is only $1.99! GO PREORDER IT!


Happy New Year, folks! I'll be heading back to uni for winter classes (three weeks long - Jan. 4th to Jan. 22nd). Good stuff!

    1. She is! And it was certainly nice of S&S! I'm not sure what I'll do with Unhooked, at the moment.

      I have three more semesters (a year and a half)! Honestly, I'm terrified at this point. I need more time to figure out my life! O_O

  16. Ohh you have Unhooked! I been eyeing that one really hard lately. I've heard so many great things about The Distance From A to Z so I am going to preorder it!

    Hope you enjoy all your books! :)
