Stacking the Shelves [20]



Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews where we get to gab on about the books we've won, bought, or otherwise received in the past week. This is a massive week. Netgalley finally approved a bunch of old requests that I'd forgotten about. I received quite a few packages in the mail, including a mega care package from my super amazing sister back home. You have been warned!

Netgalley:


All I Want Is You by Elizabeth Anthony
Falling in Honey: How a Tiny Greek Island Stole My Heart by Jennifer Barclay
Against the Ropes by Sarah Castille
Ham: Slices of a Life: Essays and Stories by Sam Harris
Waterfell by Amalie Howard
The Iron Traitor by Julie Kagawa
Made of Stars by Kelley York





Won [Physical copies]:


Exposure by Kim Askew & Amy Helmes (signed!)
The Complete Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook: Dating & Sex by David Borgenicht, Joshua Piven
Driven: From Homeless to Hero, My Journeys On and Off Lambeau Field by Donald Driver
Pretty When She Dies by Rhiannon Frater (signed!)
Pretty When She Kills by Rhiannon Frater (signed!)
Pretty When She Destroys by Rhiannon Frater (signed!)
The Nine Lives of Alexander Baddenfield by John Bemelmans Marciano, Sophie Blackall
Biting Bad by Chloe Neill
Captain Underpants and the Revolting Revenge of the Radioactive Robo-Boxers by Dav Pilkey (signed!)

From the Author:


Anything for You: Erotica for Kinky Couples by Rachel Kramer Bussel (signed!)



As you can see, I also won that cute vampire earring/necklace set! (Thanks Rhiannon!) And because my sister loves me, she sent me some of the books that had been sent to my home after I'd already settled in my dorm. And she added tons of delicious things because she's awesome:

  4. Dang, nice haul! You may be the only other blog I visit that winds up with as many books each week as I do! :) I picked up Made of Stars this week, too. It sounds really interesting.

    See how I stacked my shelves.

    1. I am in desperate need of a good mermaid book, haha. The last few I've read have been two or three stars only.

  9. OMG! Can you please share some of your luck to me. I swear I've joined a bajillion of giveaways but I only won once. Argh.

    I just requested a copy for Iron Traitor and later realized that it's already book 5 of the iron fey series. That would mean that if I ever get approved, I would certainly have to buy the first four books. Yikes! I am such a fool. *sighs*

    Please enjoy all your lovelies! And that nutella bottle. Yum!

    Thanks for stopping by my Thoughts and Pens Stacking the Shelves

    1. That's so frustrating. -sends luck your way- May the book gods smile down on you this week!

      And I have done that before, I know the feeling. I have the third Inside Out book but haven't read the first two, so it's just sitting unread on my Netgalley account -_-

      Happy reading!
