Stacking the Shelves

This week was  a big week in book mail. I’m going to be lazy and not do all the links (sorry not sorry). Hopefully you can read the title and author. If not let me know and I’ll provide it in the comments.

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.

LionHeart MechanicaBlackout BecomingJinn Velvet VanishingGirls

Silvern NOVLbox

I’ve been having some good luck with giveaways lately! I won Silvern from Christina Farley from her site (along with a pre-order) and the December NOVL Box curated by Holly Black.

I purchased from Books of Wonder so I got a signed copy. I ordered this prior to knowing I would make it to the event so I have two signed copies…that means I’ll be doing a giveaway soon.
