Stacking the Shelves (26)

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews.


For Review:
Ravenous by Heidi Loney

Thanks so much Heidi!

From giveaway:
Viral Nation by Shaunta Grimes

Thank you so much to Julie from A Tale of Many Reviews! She also threw in a bunch of swag, which is actually the first swag I've ever received! :D

Purchased:
172 Hours on the Moon by Johan Harstad
Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card

Specialty of bookstore:

The Burning Sky by Sherry Thomas
 Parallel by Lauren Miller
3:59 by Gretchen McNeil
Arclight by Josin L. McQuein
Deception by C.J. Redwine

One of the nearby independent bookstores actually gave me these 5 arcs after I told them I blog about books! Of course, I was super stoked and I can't wait to start reading. Trust me guys, independent bookstores are awesome. Remember to always support yours instead of always ordering of the internet or going to chain bookstores!

What books did you get this week?

  3. Wow, that's great that the bookstore gave you those books. Parallel and Arclight are great and I really want to read Deception and 3:59! I still need to read Ender's Game, it's been sitting on my TBR list for awhile now, but I just haven't gotten around to it. Have fun reading! ~Pam
