Stacking the Shelves is about sharing the books you’re adding to your shelves for the week. Show off the books you’ve bought, won, borrowed, etc. While it’s usually hosted on Saturdays, it can be posted any day of the week that works. For my own personal time management, my STS posts will be on Sundays when I make them. STS is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. Click to learn more and follow other awesome bloggers!
In the last week and a half, I’ve bought/received/won a nice, small haul that I’m really looking forward to!
I bought Shatter Me and Rift during a sale while grocery shopping. This is how I get a majority of my books, by the way. I “sneak-buy” during other shopping trips. Anyway, I’d been wanting to read Shatter Me for quite a long time, and Rift has been catching my interest lately. Though I hadn’t read Cremer’s other series, I was told I should be able to read this title since it’s a bit of a prequel. Hope so! I hate being lost or reading out of order.
Also random side note: I was tweeted one day by a fellow blogger and told that I could probably be Ms. Cremer’s twin. Funny enough, that’s what made me go ahead and go pick up the book. Odd I know, but it sounds good anyway!
Won in a giveaway at LibraryThing: ARC of The Art of Wishing. This book sounds freaking adorable. I’m about to start reading it soon.
Sent to me from the author: The Master of Verona. There’s a sort-of strange story behind this one. This title was a DNF for me toward the end of last year, but it wasn’t because I disliked it. It was because I had an e-book copy from NetGalley…and for some reason, my copy wasn’t formatted well, I was reading on the computer at the time before I had an e-reader again (and it’s a 500+ page book) and I did complain that this is just a title meant to be physically read instead. I personally wanted to give it another chance later on. The author was kind enough to send me a physical copy recently, and I will do that. P.S. It’s VERY rare for me to pick up a book again after a DNF the first time, but this was an unusual case.
Well, that’s all for me! Next haul is probably going to be huge…. The Indigo Spell comes out tomorrow! OMG!
