Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme, hosted by Tynga’s Reviews, that showcases books we are adding to our shelves; whether they be virtual or physical.
These are all the books that I’ve added for the last month or so. I’ve also been DL the audiobooks from Sync since they started this summer. Can’t wait to get started on them.
In My Mailbox
I Almost Forgot About You by Terry McMillan -gift from my SIL for her book club next week. Really excited to read this, as I haven’t read a book by Terry in a long time.
The Girl from Summer Hill by Jude Deveraux -Goodreads giveaway win.
Change Places With Me by Lois Metzger -FC from the publisher. I already have the ARC of this, so I’m gonna either donate this to my library, trade, or just do a giveaway.
And the Trees Crept In by Dawn Kurtagich -won from NOVL‘s monthly ARC giveaway. I have been reading nothing but contemporary, but I started this and am almost done. Definitely creepy, and I’ll have to check out her debut soon. I usually don’t even read this genre until at least September.
One Paris Summer by Denise Grover Swank – For review , and I must say it’s slightly disappointing. I’m sure you’ll get my full thoughts next week.
Frayed by Kara Terzis -This book lacked a whole lot of things, but I devoured it in 2 sittings, hoping it would get better. I know that all books that were once Wattpad sensations aren’t all bad, but I think I’m done for a while.
I’ve already devoured Cream of the Crop and loved it. Not as much as the first book, but still a nice addition to the Hudson Valley series. Can’t wait to read the next book! I love books that focus on mental health, especially in YA. Detached, however, kinda missed the mark. There was a whole lot of narrative about Anna’s mental state, but not enough about her overall character. Review to come next week! I’m looking forward to reading the rest of these.
I know, I know. I have been absent a lot lately, and that’s due to a lot of things, but mostly my sister has been back and forth to the hospital, and appointments. It’s really a lot since she has to go 2 hours away because there are no specialists that deal with TM at either of the hospitals here. I’m also dealing with a lot of other personal things, and I’m stressed the hell out. Also, I’m sick of all the hate and stupidity that is going on in this world. Can’t we all just get along?!! I’m grateful that my cousin wasn’t a casualty in the Orlando shooting, but I am deeply hurt for all the others involved and their families. I just cannot see myself bringing a child into this messed up world that we live in. It’s that simple. I’m tired of all the political machinations, and just….everything! Okay, rant over. What books have you added to your shelves lately?
