Stacking the Shelves (#226)


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, April 16th to Saturday, April 22nd?


(all links to Goodreads are provided!)


In the mail:

I'm not going home this weekend, so I have nothing to show you! There are three packages at home. I really cannot wait to be finished with school, so I don't have to keep doing this random schedule with mail and going home! 


Gifted:



The first book of the Psy-Changeling series that has taken the world by storm! I've not read any of Singh's books, so this will be an experience for me. Thank you, Cora!


Reviews from this week:

JHU Commencement in 31 days! I'm sorry, friends, but all I can think about is graduating and moving on to better, more stable/consistent things. Life is okay but stressful (academically) and I'm just trying to push through everything and graduate! 

Have a great week, everyone! =)

  6. Ooh nice! I haven't read that particular series by Nalini. I'm a fan of her Guild Hunter one...though I am massively behind in it again! Lol! Hope you enjoy the new reads!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by then!

    Have a GREAT day!

  10. Omg it's so close your grad day! Time seriously flies by. Enjoy these last few days while you can!
    So seeing the cover for Nalini's book I thought it was like Roar's second book (even though there's not even a cover and first book isn't out but it was the first thing that came to my mind LOL).
    Have a good week!

  16. I totally get what you mean with a busy schedule. School and inconsistent living situations are the epitome of stress. I hope things start getting more relaxed soon (for both of us!).

    Have a great weekend!
