Stacking the Shelves: Week 44


stackingWe are all book lovers and the need to share our enthusiasm is sometimes overwhelming. Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

If you’re anything like me, you are probably hoarding books and even though you are excited about your latest book arrival, it might be a while before you get to review it and Stacking The Shelves is a good way to express your undying enthusiasm for those titles! (Hosted by Tyngasreviews.com!)

My huge thanks to my ARC swap partners and HarperTeen this week for this load of awesome! While I loved “Delirium” and “Delirium Stories” and liked “Emilie”, I was a bit lukewarm to cold on “Spellcaster”. I’ve heard good things about “Angelfall” and I love the “Clockwork Century” series, so here’s hoping! I better get reading!
