Stacking the Shelves

This past week was incredibly uneventful which is a wonderful thing. My kiddo did have a cold for most of his spring break but he seemed content to curl up on the couch with me and watch movies. UPS lost a book I was really excited about but I have a replacement coming next week. This has been the first book they’ve ever lost from my two years of blogging but I still wasn’t a happy camper. I’m beyond thankful that a replacement was sent.

Only two new books this week but I’m so thrilled about them. 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.


You might know this but I’ve been wanting The Girl at Midnight soooo badly. I needed it in my life and a wonderful friend was sweet enough to send it to me. I am so grateful. I’ve already started it and so far I’m liking it. It has a very Laini Taylor feel so far.

I read and adored the ARC of The Storyspinner so I had a copy on order. Last Saturday via Twitter and Nikki (thank you for telling me!) Becky’s launch party was in my town that day. I switched plans around and went out to Blue Willow Bookshop to meet Becky in person. She is so sweet and a wonderful speaker. I loved hearing about her adventure in publishing.

    Ooh, the Girl at Midnight looks AMAZING, I can’t wait to start reading reviews on that one. And omg, they lost your book?! So not fun. 🙁 I haven’t had any bad book-losing experiences yet, just books arriving slightly mangled. *sigh*

    Wow, that’s terrible about UPS losing a package. I’ve never had that happen either… USPS sure, but not UPS. Glad you were able to get a replacement though! I got an eARC of The Girl at Midnight so I’m excited about that one and I really have to get my hands on a copy of The Storyspinner. Sounds so good! 🙂
