Stacking The Shelves | May 14, 2016

Stacking The Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews in which we talk about the physical books/e-books/audiobooks we’ve aquired (bought, borrowed, or received for review, etc.). Here’s what I’ve aquired in the past week:


I grabbed Dreamers Often Lie by Jacqueline West, Consider by Kristy Acevedo, and The Rose and the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh this past week. Dreamers Often Lie looks really good with Shakespeare and an unreliable narrator and all! And Consider. Ohmygod guys. I was so excited for Consider. A YA sci fi featuring a protagonist with a mental illness (more specifically, with anxiety)? Um, yes please. Of course, I was super psyched to finally have The Rose and the Dagger in my grasp–it’s been torture waiting for it, absolute agony!


As is becoming usual, my poor self bought nothing this week. I don’t know whether to smile about that or start sobbing because no more books! It’s okay. I have the library.

I don’t think I ever hauled Every Exquisite Thing by Matthew Quick but I won a physical ARC copy about 2 weeks ago and I’m really excited for it because apparently Matthew Quick also wrote Silver Linings Playbook. I also received a digital ARC of The Graces by Laure Eve and ohmygod. Can we just talk about the beautiful cover for this book? It’s so gorgeous! I just can’t get enough of it, I could stare at it forever (or at least for a long time)! In addition, I received an e-ARC of The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett, which also has a great cover and looks really interesting! I was in a new adult mood, so I requested and received Rose Petal Graves by Olivia Wildenstein, The Tower Must Fall by S.E. Bennett, and Break Up Club by Lorelai Mathias. And, finally, I received a physical audiobook copy of On The Fence by Kasie West from Audiobook Jukebox.

  1. Great haul this week, Lila–you received some books I’ve been super intrigued by…but also sort of unwilling to pick up myself right this second, so I’m interested in seeing what you make of them all!

    Here’s hoping you enjoy your recent acquisitions! Happy book-ing to you! Also, here’s my StS, if you’re interested.
