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
I was accepted for Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton! I have been highly anticipating this book since I first heard about it, and even though I hadn’t been on Netgalley in ages I got the email that I was approved for this one and about jumped through the roof. So so excited to get started on this one (now I just need to finish my current read and then I can delve into it).
I also got presents! *rubs hands together* I got Open Road Summer by Emery Lord and Vicious from V.E. Schwab from Jamie as belated Christmas presents (yes, we did a very late Christmas exchange, haha). And then, while I was writing this post, the doorbell rang and I got a package from Bex. I was Bex’s Secret Sister for the last few months and the project has just come to an end, she send me Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins (and a lovely card!). The card explained that she wanted to be responsible for introducing me to something great like I had done for her the past few months and I might have teared up a little. I have the best friends!
Last Week’s Posts
Last week I had three posts go live on my blog. I posted my ARC review of Front Lines by Michael Grant that Harper Collins International had sent me. If you haven’t heard about this one, do check out my review and let me persuade you to read it, because I absolutely loved it! I had a discussion post go live as well about How I Struggle with Creating Good Content. Do feel free to stop by and chime in as I’d love to find out your opinions on this matter. Last but not least I posted my review of The Rest of us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness. This was my first Patrick Ness book, and save for some confusion at first I fell in love with his writing!
What to Expect from Next Week
Next week you can expect my contribution to Harper UK’s blog tour for Dumplin’ (which will go up on February 2nd), which will feature my review of the book. An introductory post for Books Are My Fandom (BAMF for short, and yes that’s exactly why we chose the name, haha), the blog I co-host with my besties Jamie and Dani and we just launched together will go up as well. And my review for Rebel of the Sands will probably go up on the blog as well. Much to look forward to! *smiles a toothy smile*
