Stacking the Shelves (28)

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!



For Review:

 Life's a Witch (Life's a Witch #2) by Brittany Gergotelis (from Simon and Schuster Canada)
 Game. Set. Match (Outerbanks Tennis Academy #1) by Jennifer Iacopelli (from the author for the Blog Tour)
Drowning in You (Finding Forever in Us #1) by Rebecca Berto (from Xpresso Book Tours)
 Tragic (Rook and Ronin #1) by J.A. Huss (from Xpresso Book Tours)

I've got some awesome blog tours lined up soon! :D I can't wait to read these ones! :D


Kobo Aura HD (in espresso) (from Kobo Books)

I was completely surprised this week earlier with an offer from Kobo Books to experience the new Kobo Aura HD, and I jumped at the chance. So, they've provided me with a sample! Eek! :D I was reading on it just last night (it's totally the reason I put off on writing this StS post! haha), and I'm really enjoying it so far. Once I've used it a bit more, I'll share what I think about it with you all. :)



 Bought:

The Rising (Darkness Rising #3) by Kelley Armstrong (Book Depository/pre-order)
Locked (The Alpha Group #1) by Maya Cross (Amazon Kindle Store)
The Bet by Rachel Van Dyken (Amazon Kindle Store)
If You Stay (Beautifully Broken #1) by Courtney Cole (Amazon Kindle Store)
Damaged (Damaged #1) by H.M. Ward (Amazon Kindle Store)

My copy of The Rising came! Yay! :D I meant to read it last week, but with exams I didn't really have time. I also succumbed to Kindle sales this week...but they were all around $0.99 (sometimes Kindle books end up being like $0.97 or $1.01 in Canada...I'm guessing it's the exchange rate, but I'm really not sure :P), so I don't feel too bad. :P If I'm gonna buy books, at least I'm gonna buy ones that I really wanted that are on sale...after all, 3 of these were already on my wishlist, but the last one, Damaged, was a new discovery. :)



Thank you to Simon and Schuster Canada, Jennifer Iacopelli, Xpresso Book Tours, and of course, Kobo Books (thank you, Laura, specifically! :D). :)

And that is what I got this week, what did you get?
Feel free to leave a link in the comments and I'll come see what you got this week. :)

    1. Ya, it was super awesome! Well, not a review perse--I don't think it will be like my book review. I'm not totally sure how I'll do it yet, but I am definitely gonna post about it, as I mentioned above. :)

  2. Wow, you are one lucky girl to get a kobo sample. It looks very nice!

    Nothing wrong with going a bit crazy on kindle sales when they're books you already want!

    1. It really is! :D Good timing, too! My kindle stopped working in Mexico! I'm hoping changing the battery will help, but I'm not sure. Fingers crossed! Thanks! So far it's pretty good! :D
