Stacking the Shelves (1)

Stacking the Shelves is Tynga's Reviews' version of In My Mailbox (from The Story Siren and inspired by Alea at Pop Culture Junkie).

Stacking the Shelves is a way to share the books that you're adding to your physical and virtual bookshelves. It's easy to participate. You just make your own post, and link it to the main post over at Tynga's Reviews. Also, in case you're curious, Tynga's post for it goes up on Saturdays, but you can post it any day that you like. :) You can find out more about participating by reading the Stacking the Shelves Launch post.

So, here's what I got this week, and a few others that I got a couple weeks ago, too. :)

For Review:

 Big Sky Country (Swoon-Worthy Cowboys #1) by Linda Lael Miller (from Meryl L. Moss Media Relations)
Shift by Kim Curran (from Strange Chemistry)
Underworld (Abandon Trilogy #2) by Meg Cabot (from Scholastic Canada)

 I'm doing the blog tour for Big Sky Country...and I'm pretty excited to read about cowboys. I'm also really excited for Shift, and super duper psyched for Underworld! I can't wait to find out what happens next to Pierce!

Gifted for RAK: 

 Oppression (Children of the Gods #1) by Jessica Therrien (from Mary at Sweeping Me)
Untouched (Denazen #1.5) by Jus Accardo (from Mary at Sweeping Me)

Mary at Sweeping Me sent me a few Kindle books this week, and I can't wait to read them! :D So, thank you again, Mary! :D

Bought:

Eye Candy (City Chicks #1) by Tera Lynn Childs --- Kindle Freebie!

I've already read Eye Candy and The DUFF. :) I actually reread The DUFF the other day, and I loved it just as much as I did the last time! :D I just had to buy some books for my new Kobo, and I love that there are so many coupons to use! It's awesome! :D I really want to finally read all of the books in the Hannah Swensen series, so hopefully I can get some time to read it alongside some review books. :)

 Library:

 Prince of Thorns (The Broken Empire #1) by Mark Lawrence

Can't wait to read this one! I've heard amazing things! :D

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

From my parents for my birthday: 
Kobo Vox (Hot Pink)

Eeek! I'm still really excited about getting this! I didn't get it this week, but I got it a couple weeks ago on my birthday...so this is the thing that I mentioned getting a couple weeks ago. ;) My parents got it for me for my birthday, and I love it. :) It's great as a tablet, and I've read a few books on it now, and it works great as an ereader too. The battery isn't as good as my Kindle, but I still really like it. :)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

So, that's what I stacked my shelves with! What did you get this week? :) Feel free to link any of your mailbox memes in the comments, and I'll try to check it out. :)

    1. It's actually a pretty good deal on Kindle right now! I think I heard it was on sale for a bit...I'm not sure if that's still going on though because it was a US only thing. haha But, I'm definitely excited for that one, and hopefully you get a copy soon, too! Thanks! I'm looking forward to sharing them! :D
      Thanks you, and the same to you. :)

      Will do!

  10. I read amazing reviews on Wander Dust, so I hope you'll enjoy it! Underworld seems amazing too! I read Oppression and really liked it. It's a very interesting take on mythology. I hope you enjoy all the amazing reads, and congrats on the Kobo! x)

  13. So exciting you got some books for your Vox! I got Underworld too, maybe last week I think (it went to Montreal) but I'm excited to read it though I'm always conflicted over middle books and if I should wait till the last one comes out...

    I'll be curious what you think of Tera Lynn Child's adult romance, her YA is so adorable!

    1. It definitely was exciting! :D I already reread The DUFF on there. :D Sweet! Yeah, me too...but my curiosity usually wins out! haha

      I've actually already read the first one, Eye Candy. I read it when she had it serialized on her website, and it was really good. So funny! :D She definitely keeps the adorable sense of humor in her adult series, too. :)

  14. I really REALLY want to read Underworld, but alas, didn't get a review copy! I hope you realize how lucky you are (hehehe). Enjoy reading!

    Take a look at what's in my Mailbox.

    1. I really REALLY wanted to read it too, so a nice surprise review copy was awesome. Thankfully it's already been released, so you won't have to wait to get yourself a copy. :) Yeah, I do...every day when I blog about the books that I love, I realize it. And those free books just make me realize it even more. Not many people get to have a hobby that makes them so happy. :) Thanks, and the same to you. :)
