Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme, hosted by Tynga’s Reviews, that showcases the books we are adding to our shelves; whether they be virtual or physical.
In My Mailbox
Only two of these are for review, The Real Peter Pan: The Tragic Life of Michael Llewelyn Davies by Piers Dudgeon, and Exile for Dreamers by Kathleen Baldwin. Thank you St. Martin’s Press and Kathleen!
Won from Scholastic’s #IReadYA week. Keep Me In Mind by Jaime Reed, Rescued by Eliot Schrefer, It’s All Your Fault by Paul Rudnick, The Memory of Light by Francisco X. Stork, Everland by Wendy Spinale, The Secret Language of Sisters by Luanne Rice, Two Summers by Aimee Friedman, Kill the Boy Band by Goldy Moldavsky, See How They Run by Ally Carter, Drag Teen by Jeffery Self, Unbecoming by Jenny Downham, The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater. Yeah, I almost peed my pants when I opened the box. Also got that awesome tote (I’m obsessed with them) and cute button.
Won from Penguin Teen’s #ReadProud campaign. Highly Illogical Behavior by John Corey Whaley, The Inside of Out by Jenn Marie Thorne, Hold Me Closer: The Tiny Cooper Story by David Levithan, Grasshopper Jungle by Andrew Smith, I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson, Everything Leads To You by Nina LaCour, Half Bad by Sally Green. Since I’ve already DNF’d Half Bad earlier this year, I’m donating both my Hardcover and this paperback to the library. Or should I at least try to finish it? Is it worth it?
I’m so behind on updates for challenges that I’m doing this year. Here’s where I’m at so far.
2016 TBR Pile Challenge: 22/50
2016 Netgalley Edelweiss Challenge: 22
2016 Goodreads Reading Challenge: 129/150
I think I’m doing well on them all, though I’d like to read more physical books from my TBR pile. Mostly I’ve been reading ebooks. I haven’t requested a lot of books from NG/EW, but most of the ones I’ve read so far are requests from last year, or for blog tours this year. I’m still managing to stay above 80% this year, which is my goal. Now, I just have to keep at it. I’ve only DNF’d 4 books so far this year, and I’ve listened to 4 audiobooks. I know, I know. I suck. I’m really trying to get better, but I have a lot of stuff going on in my life right now. How are you guys doing on challenges you’re participating in? What books have you added to your shelves this week?
