Stacking The Shelves (4)


Stacking The Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews. It's a fun way to share what books we recently added to our bookshelves.
 
*All titles link to goodreads*
 
Here are some of the books I've received recently:
 
 Bought:

Something Like Normal by Trish Doller
The One That I Want by Jennifer Echols

A couple of weekends ago Trish Doller had a book signing/launch party for her book Something Like Normal and I was fortunate enough to go! I had so much fun (Trish is SO NICE!) and was able to snag two signed copies of her book, one for me to keep and one to give away on my blog in the near future--so watch out for that, because although I haven't read her book yet, I've heard phenomenal things about it and you'll want to get a copy of it as well!

While I was at the book signing, which was at a Barnes & Noble, I also bought The One That I Want because it sounds like such a cute book and I've been wanting to read it since it was released. I also got a cute bookmark, which is pictured above.

I requested God Save the Queen from LibraryThing last month but I didn't get picked to receive an ARC, which had me super bummed. BUT, it just recently came out so I was able to buy it from Amazon. I'm so excited to read it, and Braine from Talk Supe gave it an awesome review so I know I'll enjoy it!

Won & Gifted:
 
Obsidian (Lux #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Venom by Fiona Paul bookmark (signed)
Black City by Elizabeth Richards bookmark (signed)
For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund bookmark
 
I won a gift card for Amazon from the wonderful Cimmaron and Braine over at Talk Supe! That gift card paid for Halfway to the Grave and Obsidian. Thanks so much, ladies!! I'm dying to read these!
 
Also, special thanks to the very gracious and nice Jenna from Making the Grade for sharing the wealth and giving me the awesome Venom, Black City, and For Darkness Shows the Stars bookmarks! They are so pretty!
 
 
Thanks for stopping by, and please leave me a link to your post so I can check out the books you received as well!

  1. Cute bookmarks, and yay for signed novels!

    God Save the Queen was one I thought about requesting as an ARC, but I'd actually just read an awful Steampunk book (would throw the book across the room - if it weren't on my precious kindle - bad). Glad to hear it's got good reviews. Happy reading :)
