Stacking the Shelves (16)

Thanks to Tynga at Tynga's Reviews for hosting Stacking the Shelves and making this awesome graphic!

Stacking The Shelves is all about the books we are adding to our shelves each week, sharing with you our excitement for our newest titles and maybe have you discover a new book in the process! --Tynga


I'm back! I know this seems like A LOT of books, but I've been out of commission for a couple weeks. We got the house painted (inside and out) and new flooring. Due to this, the internet was spotty, all of my books had to be packed up, and it just really disrupted life. I continued reading, but mostly stayed off the computer while it was happening. And now I'm having panic attacks when I think about putting all of my books back. They're currently packed up in seventeen 55 quart plastic bins and ten fabric bins. That will be tackled Monday... Or at least some of it. Anyway, on to the books!

I received a $50 giftcard from my employer for participating in a healthcare survey and biometric screening. So, of course, I ordered more books. I have one more from the giftcard that I'm waiting for that hasn't released yet. I think the giftcard covered all but a dollar after my discount.

I'm going to be sad next year when I can no longer go to the neighboring county's library (they are no longer allowing you to borrow for free from out county) because I always find great books.

  1. Wow! That's a lot! I tried to find Vanquished today but didn't have any luck! Oh well. Just have to wait til Tuesday!

    That's a bummer about the library. Hope you can find another. I haven't really used my library in years.

    Happy Reading!!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by!

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    1. I don't think it would've been nearly as stressful, but the whole thing really stressed out our three cats.

    You should also read the 4 prequels novellas they are even better than the actual book !
