Stacking the Shelves #50


Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews, which is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. You can read more about the creation of Stacking the Shelves by visiting the official launch page here.

This week I’ve been participating in Bout of Books 7.0, and while I’ve been chipping away at my to-read list with the read-a-thon, I’ve still managed to pick up quite a few books. I also had an extremely busy week at work, which has left me so tired in the evenings that for the past two nights I’ve come home and fallen asleep. There are 3.5 days of work left until I get summer break (teacher perk!), and I cannot wait to have consecutive days where I don’t have to get up at 6am!



Library Pick:

tides tumbleandfall forgottenones outcast
vanishinggame smartgirls oncewewere


Thank you to Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Macmillan, Diversion and HarperTeen for the e-galleys! Galley ban? What galley ban? Seriously, I failed SO HARD this week at that. But, to be fair, I actually was approved for Tides AGES ago and never downloaded it until this week, and Tumble & Fall is one of those titles I cannot WAIT to read, so I had to download it when I learned it was up on NG. I know, poor defense, but it sounds good, right?

What did you get this week? Please link me!

  4. scottreadsit says:

    Great haul! I’m also on a Galley Ban because I have too many books to read. I couldn’t myself from requesting Tumble & Fall!

    Ooooh you got Once We Were! I’m really looking forward to that one. Happy reading!

  11. I’ve been seeing such fantastic reviews of Golden; I definitely want to check it out, even though I’m not a big contemporary reader. I thought about signing up for Bout of Books, but I realized that I wasn’t going to have all that much time for reading this week. I hope to participate in the next one because it sounds like so much fun. Hope you enjoy all of your books, Merin! Thanks for stopping by! :)

  12. Ashley says:

    I love love love your new books! I’m dying to read Sweet Peril and Golden! Especially GOlden because everyone has been raving about it! And of course I hope Tumble & Fall is amazing! :D

  13. Merin… I cannot even express to you the envy I feel for your summer break coming :D Golden has the most stunning cover, gah.. I’m probably going to pick it up lol. I have a review copy that I’ll be reading this week and if I love it chances are I will have to get it :P Psch, Galley ban haha. Cass & I are supposed to be on one as well and both are failing haha. TOO MANY GOOD BOOKS :D I think I’m going to request Outcast… oh and The Vanishing Game hahah, I’m glad I missed that daily deal I would have gotten it. Actually they all look wonderful :P I hope you enjoy all your books Merin!!

  14. Lily B says:

    oo Tumble and Fall. I have my eye out on that one :D great haul! I hope you enjoy your books. Have a great weekend and thank you for stopping by

  15. Sweet Peril is our June Book Club pick! I’m so excited to read it!

  16. Lisa says:

    I really loved Golden. I’m so jealous of everyone I see buying it. I want a finished copy too. I’m excited to see what you think about it. I hope you like it. (:

    I’ve been seeing Tumble & Fall on various blogs. It sounds so interesting. I don’t feel like there’s a lot of books that take place during the end of the world. Sounds cool. I definitely want to check it out.

    I tried starting Smart Girls Get What They Want, but I wasn’t really feeling it. I didn’t get very far in, though… so I’m sure it probably gets better. I think I’m going to postpone reading it anyway.

    I hope you like all your books (:

  17. Ooh lots of great reads this week!! I was tempted to request Outcast on NG but figured I’m probably going to check out her book launch party and just wait until then to get a copy… sure have more than enough to read as it is! :P
    I still have to read Sweet Evil, can’t believe the second one’s already out too! >_<

    Happy reading and thanks for stopping by!

  18. Nice haul. The Vanishing Gmae looks really good and is now on my TBR list. Happy Reading! :)

  19. Quinn says:

    I’ve heard such great things about Sweet Evil, but I still haven’t read it. And now with Sweet Peril out, I’m feeling the pressure :)

    I have been exhausted the last few days, too. I took Sunday for just myself, and just relaxed, read, and barely did anything else (including blogging) and it felt really good.

    Enjoy your summer! Happy reading :)
