Stacking The Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews and is all about sharing the books you are adding to your 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!
It feels like months since I did a Stacking the Shelves post! I’ve been pretty good the past couple of months, I didn't buy any new books. I could see the stacks decorating my room, and I thought it would be a pretty good idea to try and tackle them first. This little resolution was working fantastically… until the middle of July rolls around and the looming release of Opposition. I pre-ordered it, and that opened the flood-gates…
As of typing up this post, Opposition hasn’t arrived yet. I’ve been avoiding all reviews, twitter, GoodReads etc as I don’t want to be spoiled. I’m not jealous of anyone who’s read the book or anything – absolutely not! *cough*
When I ordered Opposition, I also bought a recent release that’s been taunting me for so long. It’s Book 4 in the Night School series, Resistance by C.J. Daugherty. The minute it showed up, I started reading, and oh my goodness, it was so worth it! It’s easily in my top three, if not my favourite book of 2014. My review will be up in the next week or so, and prepare for a lot of fangirling!
As some of you know, I’ve only recently started reading Harry Potter for the first time. I got a copy of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone a couple of months ago, and erm… well... I.. I.. I’m not addicted! I swear! I have no idea how this happened… It was a moment of weakness! Yes, that’s it! *wrings hands*
They are so pretty. And shiny. And tempting! And my reading schedule is full for August… *cries*
(On a side note: I never want to meet the person that decided putting a sticky barcode and reams of sticky tape on the pretty box was a good idea. *Shakes head* I’ll never understand some peoples logic!)
These are some Kindle Freebies I picked up:
Providence, by Jamie McGuire
Lost in Me, by Lexi Ryan
Lost and Found, by Nicole Williams
The Hazards of Skinny Dipping, by Alyssa Rose Ivy
I can't wait to read Providence! I had intended to buy and read it around the time I read Beautiful Disaster, but as you can guess, that didn't happen. The others I accidentally came across, saw they were free, and thought, "yes, excellent idea!". Hopefully it works out well!
That’s all the books I’ve added to my shelves for this week. I have a few more books on the way apart from Opposition, and they will hopefully arrive at some stage during the week.
Feel free to leave a link to your Stacking the Shelves post if you have one, so I can some visit.
Have a great weekend, and Happy Reading!
