Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected. And I have a HUGE haul this week. Well, it feels like it anyway. First, I want to share something that I came home to find sitting on my front porch on Tuesday:
I saw this box, which as you can see has a Fierce Reads sticker on the lower right side corner of the top of the box. And I was really excited because Fierce Reads are some awesome books. Well when I opened it up, this is part of what I saw:
It is a kit to host my own Fierce Reads party! Also containing four books, one of which I’ve been really, really, eager to read anyway! And this is really exciting, because I’m hoping that maybe I can use this box as part of my new high school librarian job to help get kids in the library for reading other than research. I’ll be giving away the things in the box at that event if I’m able to have it. But, I may have to read through at least 2 of the books myself before I give them away. Is that wrong? If you can’t tell, the 4 books are: Of Triton (Poseidon #2) by Anna Banks, Sky on Fire (Monument 14 #2) by Emmy Laybourne, Unremembered by Jessica Brody, and Siege and Storm (The Grisha #2) by Leigh Bardugo. Sky on Fire is the one I’m really excited about as I loved the first one. And I’d also really wanted to read Unremembered. And if you remember from last week, I got the UK version of Shadow and Bone (The Grisha #1), so that is cool too. I guess just in case many of the students have read the first in the series for those sequels, I may have to get copies of those too to give away.
This looks like a great book for teens, and I did get some bookmarks to go with it. Could be another book I give away as a librarian this year!
