Stacking the Shelves

Stacking the Shelves

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Team Tynga's Reviews.  You can find their blog here:  This weekly meme, which Tynga's team posts on Saturdays, is all about sharing the books that you received or purchased over the previous week.  Feel free to leave a comment with a link to your own Stack!

ARCs & egalleys

Fire in the Sea by Myke Bartlett
Tape by Steven Camden (Look at that cover! How could someone of my generation resist?!)
Jesus Jackson by James Daley (I just love the title!  Intrigued about the book.)
Burning Kingdoms by Lauren DeStefano (Can you believe I haven't read any DeStefano yet?  Teen Library Services Specialist fail.)
Perfect Couple by Jennifer Echols  (Another head-slap: I haven't read any Echols yet either!)
As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales From the Making of the Princess Bride by Cary Elwes with Joe Layden (Hubby is a bit jealous that I get to read this before him.  I do plan to be nice and share it with him after I read it, though.)
Yoko's Diary by Paul Ham (This one is younger YA?  Middle grades?  But I think it has tearjerker potential.)
Me Being Exactly as Insane as You Being You by Todd Hasak-Lowy (I love this title too! I feel like this will be a funny book and I enjoy funny books.)
Promposal by Rhonda Helms
In a Split Second by Sophie McKenzie
Not Otherwise Specified by Hannah Moskowitz (I loved
Gone Gone Gone so I'm excited to try her newest book.)
Phantom Limb: A Daniel Rinaldi Mystery by Dennis Palumbo
The Intern by Gabrielle Tozer (How much do you LOVE that cover?! I love love love it!)
The Storyspinner by Becky Wallace

(Who doesn't love free books?  Go visit your public library!)
Top Secret Twenty-One by Janet Evanovich (As I write this blog post I'm nearly through this book, so look for a review soon.  I love love love Stephanie Plum books!)
The Zhivago Affair: The Kremlin, the CIA, and the Battle Over a Forbidden Book by Peter Finn with Petra Couvee (I do quite a bit of banned books activism, so I'm really interested in this.  It is an adult nonfiction, so I hope it's not too terribly heavy for summer reading.)
The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd (A sister-in-love recommendation, so you know I have to try it!  I love it when a family member and I read the same book and we can discuss it.)


  1. Despite the fact that I didn't love Biggest Flirts, I have my fingers crossed I'll get approved for an ARC of Perfect Couple. I love Echols' books and just hope BF was a rare miss for me. Promposal also looks like it could be fun.

    I'm not familiar with the other titles on your list, but I hope you enjoy them!

  2. Amazing haul this week, so many brilliant books this week. Tape looks really good, keep seeing it in my local book store and getting more and more tempted to buy it. I hope you have a great reading week and enjoy all of your new additions :) Here's my STS.

  3. So jealous of Perfect Couple! I have not been approved yet! :(
