Stacking the Shelves 20/02/2016

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. It is a meme to showcase the books that we have bought, borrowed, received for review, or were given as a gift (basically to show off any book that we acquired). As well, I will tell you a bit about the what has been going on this week and what you can expect from me in the upcoming week!

This Week’s Book Haul

StS (2)

I got the Fangirl collectors edition from my friend Ali in a belated Christmas package (which means that I now officially own 3 Fangirl editions, my family thinks I’m nuts). I just love the artwork in this edition, the first two pages contain two prints and I think they’re absolutely gorgeous, I regret nothing! I also got a review copy of Amy Zhang’s This is Where the World Ends from American Book Center. I’m really excited about this one, I loved Zhang’s debut Falling Into Place, and I hope this one will be just as good (even though the early reviews I’ve seen haven’t been as great so far…). Then last but not least, I will buddy-review The Love that Split the World together with Jamie and Dani over at our second blog Books Are My Fandom, so I got myself an eBook version of this. I am actually half-way in now, and I’m afraid that up until now, it’s a bit of a disappointment (while my co-bloggers seemed to love it)… I am hoping this will change!

Last Week’s Posts

Well, as you can see last week was a big fat disappointment post-wise… The only thing I posted was last week’s Stacking the Shelves. I had planned to do a Top 10 Tuesday post, as well as write (and post) my review of Earth’s End by Elise Kova, but I was too busy with university reading and training to get any blogging done. I read Huckleberry Fin for my American Literature class and Frankenstein for my British Literature class, and those were such HUGE reads that besides that I only got halfway through Earth’s End and halfway through The Love that Split the World. Besides that I trained every single day (this is normal for me though) and basically I just suck, so no posts, SORRY GUYS! I will do better next week!

What to Expect from Next Week

Okay, upcoming week is a busy one, lots of training (again), tons of appointments, but less university reading though (yay!). However, I am writing and scheduling posts today, so there will be posts! Pinky promise. My review for Earth’s End will go up this week. I will finish this book this weekend, I MUST. I’ll probably write my review for The Love that Split the World (don’t know if I will post it already though). I am working on a post about my exercise addict ways, I don’t know if it’ll be a post that my readers will like, but we’ll see!

  1. Great haul this week, you have some awesome looking books. This is Where the World Ends is one I have for review and need to read, but all the bad reviews have put me off and now I am nervous. I hope you enjoy them all :) Here’s my STS.

      Yeah the bad reviews have put me off as well, and unfortunately I haven’t been blown away by it yet (I hope that is yet to come… but I’ve been dragging my way through it so far). Two of my best friends LOVE it though, so I hope you will as well!!

    Fangirl is fun, in my opinion (and I love Noelle Stephenson’s cover art) — I need to hurry up and read the semi-related Carry On. Hope you enjoy these books!

      I read Carry On recently! I thought it was a fun read, not as great as Rainbow Rowell’s other books, but definitely REALLY enjoyable!

      I love this Fangirl edition as well! Probably why I got myself a third copy (lol). I love that book SO much, and this copy was so worth it!

      Yeah, it really does suck… but hey, I can’t love everything I read! And it’s not a total bust, there are some aspects I’m really enjoying (so could be WAY worse).

    I’ve heard The Love that Split the World wasn’t the greatest so I haven’t rushed to buy it. I was going to after seeing so many glowing reviews but there’s a book blogger I trust and she didn’t like the book so I pushed it down on my TBR. I hope it picks up though!
    College leaves us without lives!! And when I do have a break, I don’t have the strength to blog so it really sucks :/
