Welcome to Stacking the Shelves. Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga at Tynga's Reviews. This is where we showcase books we have received or bought during the week.
So this week we had another Kindle Daily Deal, an ARC approval, a gift from a friend, a purchase at Target, and a book for an upcoming blog tour. All in all, a pretty exciting week of books for me! *spins* Which is good because all week long I have been sick and when I would get new reading material, it was pretty much the only excitement in my day. Sad, isn't it?
An Uncommon Education by Elizabeth Percer
This is for a blog tour on January 24th. I will be reviewing it then, so if you are interested in this book, come back and see my thoughts on that day. Thank you to TLC Book Tours and Harper Perennial for my lovely finished copy.
The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
I saw this at Target and had to buy it after discussing at length during my most recent Top Ten Tuesday how I had not read this yet. I vowed to read it this year, and I will, I just don't know when yet.
If You Find Me by Emily Murdoch
I had already been approved for an eARC of this book, but I would much rather read it in actual book form, so thank you to St. Martin's Griffin for my lovely unsolicited copy. This book is a lot shorter than I had thought it was. I'll hopefully be reading this soon!
Speechless by Hannah Harrington
This was the Kindle Daily Deal at one point this week, and who could pass it up for a $1.99, especially after my co-blogger Lyn raved about it in here review here.
The Impossibility of Tomorrow (Incarnation #2) by Avery Williams
Thanks to Simon and Schuster and Edelweiss for approving my request for book two of this series. I really enjoyed The Alchemy of Forever. It totally ended up being a me book. Not flawless by any means, but I really fell for the story, the mystery, and the characters. I am really looking forward to this one.
Echo (The Soul Seekers #2) by Alyson Noel
Thanks for this go to my co-blogger Lyn. What a lovely Christmas gift that caught me completely by surprise. I found myself really shocked when I enjoyed the first book of this series after reading book one of The Immortals series and thinking it was pretty shitty. Evermore has quite a reputation in the blogging community. But I found the writing much improved, and though the romance is still cheesy, I really enjoyed the story and atmosphere. I am really looking forward to seeing where this series goes. Thanks, Lyn!
And that's it for me this week. All in all, a pretty good week. I know I talk to much and I would totally save time with these posts if I would just list the books and get on with it, but sometimes I cannot help myself and I get in moods where I like to ramble. That's me! I'm starting to feel better, so leave me a comment to your STS posts and I will come see what you got! Until next week, happy reading!
