Stacking The Shelves (#1)

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. It gives us a chance to share with readers what we bought, borrowed, swapped, won or got for review each week. 

First, I should probably say that this is the first time I collected my thoughts enough to actually post a Stacking The Shelves post. And I am SO excited! FUN, FUN, FUN.

Well, for now, I don't have my own Stacking the Shelves graphic yet, so I'm going to use the original/ official one from Tynga's Reviews.

Onto the books!


1. The Walled City by Ryan Graudin: (ARC- November 2014)

The Walled City sounds super fascinating- a mixture of Claire McFall's Bombmaker and Abi Ketner's and Melissa Kalicicki's Branded and I can't WAIT to get to it

2. Blackfin Sky by Kat Ellis (Firefly Press)

3. Minty by Christina Banach

4. Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaria:

I suppose that Love Letters is specifically new only to my physical shelf- I got the chance to read an ARC back in January- but it was just one of those books that I had to end up buying a paperback off!

5. Entangled by Cat Clarke

6. There is no Dog by Meg Rosoff

7. Out of my mind by Sharon Draper

Courtesy: My Darling Brother- just for fun! (He sort of owed me- you know how that goes:P)


Finding Mr. Darcy by Erin Butler (For a blog tour review)

Hope for Garbage by Alex Tully (From the author- for review)

A Safe Space by E.M.Tippets (Via Netgalley)

Which brings me to the end of my VERY FIRST Stacking The Shelves. So, my birthday is coming up in two weeks and there will DEFINITELY be another haul in then- from all my brilliant friends!

See you then!

    1. Thanks, Keira! I love Love Letters- let me know what you think of it when you read:)

  4. I have The Walled City and I'm excited to read it especially because of the Asian setting. Blackfin Sky looks really interesting too! :)
    Enjoy your book haul this week!

    Nick - My Haul

    1. I'm about halfway into the book- it's mostly just that the names are Asian, everything else just feels like its in the Westernized world- but a gripping read just the same!

      Thanks, Nick! I'm looking forward to them.

  5. Great haul. Have a wonderful weekend!
