Stacking the Shelves & #WeekReview 7/4/15

Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga's Reviews is meant for sharing books you are adding to your shelves. They can be physical, virtual and/or ARCs -- anything really that's ending up on your bookshelf for awhile.

To be honest, a lot of my ARCs have come in virtual and I am not even in the right head space to list them all. Also, our library has been going through the books they are giving away to students participating in the summer reading program so a lot of my physical ARCs and book buys at Goodwill have ended up there. However, buying books for others has been fun especially since it is like a treasure hunt to find the book in such an expansive, disorganized area.

Don't worry though... I wouldn't be putting up a post if I didn't have anything to share with you.



First off, look at those beauties from Susan Dennard?! They are personalized and Christmas gifts for my daughter who already knows about them, because I am a sucker and could not wait to show her the personalizations.

  11. Oooh! Lots of new shiny books! It's hard to keep a promise not to buy new books when I see so many great ones listed in an StS post like this.

    I'm drooling over The Shrunken Head. How does HarperCollins distribute their ARCs? I didn't see their US division listed at NetGalley?

    1. I would hate to be on a book ban but completely understand the need for them. To be honest, I have no idea how HarperCollins distributes their ARCs, a contact of mine sent me The Shrunken Head.

      Netgalley isn't my main source of ARCs. I write for Amazon which is from where a lot of my physical ARCs arrive.
