Stacking the Shelves: Week 46

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!)

Week 46: Here’s what landed on our shelves this week!

None this week!



The pictured kitty is my littlest cat. Her name is Shadow and she’s roughly four years old (we adopted her and have no clue how old she really is), but she is more often known as Dodo Bird or simply Dodo. So yeah, the cat’s cat. Catception! Meow~.

    • I hope it will be too! It’s a really short book and I wanted to get it read this week, but other books got in the way. I was surprised Penguin sent me anything with my stats at the time! (The ones they currently consider when I put in requests are the ones I had for The YA Kitten.) If you’ve already filled out the blogger request form Penguin Teen has on their Tumblr and you haven’t gotten anything, that’s something I’m seriously flabbergasted at. Your stats are better than mine ever were!
