Welcome to Stacking the Shelves #4!! Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga at Tynga's Reviews.
This week I went to Barnes and Noble and met one of my fellow twitter friends. I had no intentions of buying anything, but as everyone already knows, when I go to Barnes and Noble (or any bookstore), I vomit lack of willpower all over the place. So I bought 9 books. Some of them are books I have been wanting to read for awhile, and because of the enormous size of my tbr stack, will probably take me a few MORE years to get to. Sigh. Anyway, so don't expect to see reviews of these anytime soon, but you never know. I tend to pick my reads randomly because I can never choose. I am a fan of random.org for this purpose. The books I bought, you ask? See the photo below.
The Dead (The Enemy #2) by Charlie Higson
The Russian Concubine by Kate Furnivall
World War Z by Max Brooks
State of Wonder by Ann Patchett
The Year of the Gadfly by Jennifer Miller
Every Other Day by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
No Safety in Numbers by Dayna Lorentz
The Cranes Dance by Meg Howrey
I got no books for review this week, but I'm glad. I'm fairly close to getting caught up and then it remains to be seen whether or not I will be requesting more review books in the future. I don't really like the pressure. I'd rather read what I want and utilize my library. I will still participate in blog tours, of course, but I don't know if I will use NetGalley that much more. Meh. It's a cool service but sometimes knowing you have all these review books to read makes reading less fun.
Leave me a comment and I will visit your posts! I was hoping to do a vlog this week but I'm really just not in the mood. At all. :)
