Stacking the Shelves – December 13th, 2014
Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.
It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected. This was a pretty good week, as I got one of my Secret Santa gifts, and also a surprise ARC in the mail!
I ended up signing up for two Secret Santas through two different blogs. So far I’ve sent both, but only received one. Which is okay since I just got one of mine sent today! But my first one I received was through The Broke and The Bookish Secret Santa, and it was actually someone I knew, I’d traded with her on YA Book Exchange in the past. And can I say that she totally spoiled me? Before I get into all the books she got me, let me share all the extra stuff in the box.
There were two magazines, a Chinese DVD of the first four seasons of The Big Bang Theory, lots of really good smelling soaps and lotions and hand sanitizers, some candy (which I’ve eaten some already), a candle, and some cute undies! So a big thank you goes out to Mia of M and Em Read. Now for the books she sent me!
Three awesome books I've been wanting! Thakns again Mia!! You 're an awesome Secret Santa.
It's a big thick one! I've read one other book by this author, and it was a pretty good one. I know that I will probably want to order this for my school library after I read it as well. Thanks to Scholastic Publishing for this one.
E-galleys from Edelweiss:
Three really awesome ones from Edelweiss this week.
E-galley from Netgalley:
As you can see, I got a couple Holocaust books this week. And then The Last American Vampire I'm really excited about. I got to meet the author this summer, and I'd hoped to get an ARC of it, but all I got was an autograph in the first book. So I"m very excited for this e-galley.
The first one was free, sounded interesting, so I downloaded it. The 2nd one I’ve seen around, and it sounds okay, but when it was free I went for it.
So a pretty good week! I’ve still got another Secret Santa gift that should be coming, and I’ll be asking for some books for Christmas as well.
