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 Thursday was my birthday--which is why there was no post on Friday. Lol. My awesome husband just told me to order whatever books I wanted on Amazon (he knows me so well), so I'll have my birthday haul to show you all next week.
On the work front: I have appointments set up with two different offices next week. One office controls the sub list for 5 different districts. As all the districts have both a middle and a high school, by the end of the week I should be on the sub list for 12 different schools. So hopefully I'll start getting jobs soon.
On the blog front: this week I posted reviews for two books: Real Prom Queens of Westfield High (which I found to be too over-the-top and unrealistic on a couple of different levels) and Better Off Friends (which I loved). I also posted a discussion post which looks at My DNF Habits.
Also, on the blog front, I've been giving what I want this blog to be a lot of thought over the past couple of weeks and plan to make some small changes going forward. I plan on posting my thoughts next week sometime...as soon as I finish putting it together.
On the book front: I got all kinds of goodies to show you from review books to what I bought to what I snagged from the library. I'm especially excited for the review books. I'm truly excited for all four of these. This week was an awesome book week. So without further adieu...I hope you are all having a splendid weekend!
Perfect Lies by Kiersten White
I'm so excited for this one. I loved Mind Games and cannot wait to find out what happens next. I've started this, but have been reading it slowly.
Bright Before Sunrise by Tiffany Schmidt
I've already finished this cute story that takes place over the course of an evening. Like Better Off Friends, you see both POVs of the boy and the girl throughout the story which I enjoyed. A review will be up sometime next week.
Maybe One Day by Melissa Kantor
Like almost all books, I've seen some pretty polarizing star ratings for this book about a girl dealing with her best friend's cancer. I read the first chapter just to see and I like the writing style so far. There are a couple of other books I need to finish before I completely dive in, but this one is definitely next.
The Fifty-Seven Lives of Alex Wayfare by MG Buehrlen
I'm intrigued by this story about a girl that has 57 past lives and the ability to go back in time to access them. If you read my DNF post you'll remember that I stated I'm trying to only request contemporary books that I know I'll enjoy, but I'm definitely making the exception for original and intriguing books like this one.
What I bought
Antigoddess by Kendare Blake
I've been meaning to read this one for forever. I found it for a dollar at HPB yesterday. A dollar!
Truth or Dare by Jacqueline Green
This mystery has been compared to Pretty Little Liars. I gave up on the series after the 6th book (or 5th, I can't remember), but this one was in the clearance section for two dollars, so I thought I'd give it a try.
The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman
I know it will be awhile before I get to this one, but it was also only two dollars in the clearance section, and totally brand new.
What I snagged from the library
Going Bovine by Libba Bray
I've checked this one out a couple of times, but never seem to get to it. It sounds interesting and I've enjoyed the couple of Libba Bray books I have read.
In Honor by Jessi Kirby
I really enjoyed Golden by Ms. Kirby when I read it last year and wanted to give her early work a look.
Racing Savannah by Miranda Kenneally
I have the e-arc on my Kindle for this one, but haven't been able to get to it yet. I found the PB at the library which is my preferred book form. I love those boots! I want them.
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!
