Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature hosted by Tyngas Reviews. This meme allows us to share the books we've recently added to our shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks! *Clicking the link of a book's title will take you to Goodreads.
So back to my normal life. I've graduated graduate school and am still waiting for my teacher certification from the state so that I can at least work as a substitute this semester. I'm still at my office part-time but they've pretty much told me that they are looking for my replacement since I don't want to go back to full time. I'm hoping that I can get into to some school districts as a sub before that happens. Because I, like, like money and food and stuff.
On the blog front this was a pretty awesome week. I got up two book reviews: Being Sloane Jacobs and Cringe. Both books are cute and quick reads and I would recommend both. I also posted a movie review. Did you know Channing Tatum was in a high school reunion movie? It's called Ten Years and it's a simple, fun movie that you should definitely check out.
On the new book front, I have some pretty cool books to show you. So without further adieu...Hope you are all having awesome weekends!
A Mad, Wicked Folly by Sharon Biggs Waller
I'm in love with that dress. I love the yellow. This book is set in the early 1900s and follows a girl who wants to be an artist, but isn't allowed to study art because she's just a girl. I've heard this has a pretty feminist slant with I love.
Avalon by Mindee Arnett
I have to admit that I'm not quite sure why I downloaded this teens driving a space ship story. It really isn't my normal book at all. I'm going to give it a shot though.
What Nora Knew by Linda Yellin
This chick-lit novel follows a journalist looking for love with the help of Nora Ephron movies. If anybody can help it's Nora Ephron.
Fake ID by Lamar Giles
A teen murder mystery. I don't really know that much about it.
What I Bought
Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney
A girl turns to the secret society that polices her boarding school after she is date raped.
The Brightest Star in the Sky by Marian Keyes
I've already read this charming book that follows the different people living in a townhouse, but I couldn't request snagging this copy when I found it for $2. I love Marian Keyes.
What I snagged from the library
The Killing Woods by Lucy Christopher
I'm excited to read this YA mystery that follows a girl trying to clear her father's name.
The F-It List by Julie Halpern
I passed on requesting this when it was up on NG. I just don't know how many books about cancer and/or bucket lists I can read, but the first chapter was pretty good so I think I'm going to give this slim novel a try.
So that's it for me this week. I'm pretty excited about what I added to my shelves. What did you add to your shelves? Link me up!
