Stacking the Shelves [59]

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews where we get to show off the books we've won, bought, or otherwise received in the past week. If a book catches your eye, *click* the picture to go to the Goodreads page of that book.

Soooo I was being good this week, but the damn Netgalley fairies decided to accept my requests all at once. And while yay new books, also ;-; read ALL of the things? But, I am feeling pretty accomplished this week. I have completed a few books, sent out a few interviews, and amazingly kept up with my schoolwork, including teaching an English class in front of my peers. I'm glad I got it over with, and I think I did pretty well! Now, shall we get to the titles?

    Grace @ Books of Love

    1. I've heard good things, but also that it's quite the tearjerker.

  3. Oh boy. The only two I recognize are The Jewel and Tabula Rasa- hated The Jewel, was ehh about Tabula Rasa. HOPEFULLY YOU ENJOY THEM MORE THAN I DID :) I hope you enjoy all of your new books! And best of luck with uni this year :)

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a fabulous weekend :)

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

  4. Awesome haul! Love Like the Movies looks super cute! :)


  5. Great haul this week! I'm excited for MELT. It sounds really good! And I read and really enjoyed THE JEWEL!! I hope you enjoy them all!

    Thanks for stopping by my STS @ Addicted Readers! :)

    1. I'm glad to hear you liked The Jewel, I've heard mixed things.

  6. I heard mixed things about the Jewel so I don't know... But the others are new to me. Happy reading!

    1. Same here. Even in the comments here, I've had some people say they liked it and hated it lol.

  7. Congrats on your great book haul!

  8. Nice book haul-I like some of the covers. I'm trying to cut back on the books after a month long splurge so I have to encourage others to spend instead...enjoy your books!

  9. Now you have 2 copies of If I Stay, if memory serves. Maybe you should give one away...
    Check out my new review round up. I would love your input on the idea book review goddess.

    1. You have a GREAT memory. That is exactly what I plan to do with my copy.

  10. Dark Redemption looks good, hope you enjoy and have a great upcoming week.

  11. I LOVED Melt. I cannot wait to have a finished copy for my shelves. The subject matter didn't make it an easy book to read, but it was beautiful. I can't wait to read your review to find out what you thought about it.

  12. Seriously a fabulous stack! A couple of these I have ARC's for and then some of the others are on my tbr. Thanks for stopping by!!

    Tressa @ Wishful Endings

  13. Aww - If I Stay and Where She Went! Okay, I haven't read either of those yet but I've been meaning to for so so long! Hopefully soon - I won't watch the movie until I read the book and I REALLY want to see the movie! The Jewel sounds good, too! I'm looking forward to seeing reviews for it.

    Great haul!
