This last week (July 14th) marked my eight year wedding anniversary! I can’t believe it’s been that long. My husband and I are so bad at remembering our anniversary date…we have both forgotten almost every year. We hadn’t remembered this year until I got an email saying something about Bastille day and that made me think…oh yeah! That’s my anniversary. haha. Thankfully, we are both horrible at remembering so it’s never a big deal that we’ve forgotten.
Enough about my personal life, on to the books. Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga’s Reviews is a weekly meme where you show what books you’ve purchased, gotten from the library, received from giveaway, as gifts or for review.
This book haul will be including two weeks of books since last week I only added one new book. I’ve just combined everything into one picture because I’m lazy.
For Review (via publisher):
The Fairyland Series by Catherynne M. Valente and The Copernicus Legacy books 1 and 2 by Tony Abbott
I know very little about either series but am excited to read them. Have you read either?
Gift (from an amazing blogger friend):
Now That You’re Here by Amy K. Nichols
Ever since Amie Kaufman mentioned this book on Twitter I’ve been obsessed with reading it. I was over the moon that a friend had a copy to spare. I just might have hugged the book.
I also got the Deep Blue tote/beach towel for being on the blog tour (where I shared the play list). I absolutely love it! I saw people getting them at BEA and felt mighty green. It is so awesome to own one 🙂
The Girl With All the Gifts by M.R. Carey
Have you seen the reviews for this book yet? They are all so wonderful I had to get my hands on it immediately. Now I have to make time to read it.
I had a great week of posts last week. Here’s what you might have missed.
- Discussion Post– When you can’t remember details to a book you recently read-does this detract from your opinion of the book?
- Review of Dark Metropolis by Jaclyn Dolamore
- Blog Tour for The Kiss of Deception– Interview with Mary E. Pearson + Giveaway (still going so go and enter)
- Discussion Post– How do you feel when others hate a book you love?
- Review of Mortal Danger by Ann Aguirre
I am feeling so behind on commenting and replying to your comments. I hope to catch up this week but we’ll see. Not only am I behind on those but the reviews I need to write are piling up. It seems like lately I’ve been suffering from a major review writer’s block (if that’s a thing). I can’t seem to write a decent review that can express any of my thoughts. Bleh. Hopefully this will ease up. Luckily, I am in a reading mood so I keep cruising through books. Now if I could write all the reviews.
How was your week? What books did you add to your shelves?
