Stacking The Shelves | May 21, 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:


It was the best kind of week for library borrows. I got a temporary card to another library and I’m rolling in books now (isn’t that quite a vision). I grabbed Highly Illogical Behavior by John Corey Whaley, Shadowshaper by Daniel Jose Older, The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen, Catch A Falling Star by Kim Culbertson, Splintered by A.G. Howard, Aristotle and Dante Discover The Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz, Meant to Be by Lauren Morill, Defiance by C.J. Redwine, Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson, and Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink! Phwew! That was a lot! I have no clue how I’m gonna get through them all, but we shall see…



Ah, I was so close to sweet monetary success, but alas! Book Outlet foiled my plot yet again! I bought Written in the Stars by Aisha Saeed last minute! So close!!!


I received two great books this week that I can’t wait to get to! I nabbed We Own The Night by Ashley Poston and How To Disappear by Ann Redisch Stampler! I’m especially excited for How To Disappear as I’m in kinda a mystery mood!

  1. I’m curious to hear what you think of Splintered. It’s got an intriguing concept, but I’m on the fence about it. Rolling in books from the library¨¨ is my favorite activity. 🙂 And speaking of happy library stories, I finally replaced my lost card for the county library, so now pretty much every book is available to me (our county is huge.) My first county library hold was an audio book you recommended: Lair of Dreams–I’m dying to hear it! City library holds usually only take a day or two. It’ll be interesting to see how long they take for the county library, since the branches are a lot farther apart.

    1. oh that’s great, eve! i’m excited to hear what you think of lair of dreams (i almost typed “library of dreams”–talk about a freudian slip!). libraries are so fantastical! i don’t know much about splintered other than it’s an alice in wonderland retelling which i think features alice’s granddaughter…it sounds delightful!

  2. I just have to say, your library has amazing books. If I had such a cool library (my library is actually amazing but I live in Croatia so we have what we have translated) I’d be in library all the time and I wouldn’t be buying the amount of books I do.

    Anyway, yay for Splintered, I hope you’ll like it bc I loved it!
    And of course, I hope you’ll like all the other books as well! 😀
