This meme was started by Tynga at Tynga's Reviews. The link is to the official launch page that explains what Stacking the Shelves is all about and where to sign up. Basically, it's a weekly meme where you post what you've bought, borrowed, and/or read, throughout the week. To quote Tynga, "you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!"I almost forgot to post this! Gah! I have house-guests coming next week and they "surprised" me by calling to say they're flying in Tuesday instead of Thursday. This was not really a good surprise since these aren't the type of guests that I usually like. And what I mean by that is, they didn't ask if they could stay here. They just called my mother about 3 months ago and told her they were staying with me when they came home. Sure, I have a couple extra rooms at my house, but I mean really, can't they ask me? Ya know, the person who actually lives here?! *smh*
But enough about me. After all, this is about what I took in this week, right?! Simply put, I think my Nook is bursting at the seams after this week. And many of those were ARCs which I will have to review, but I'm looking forward to that. Not to mention that, with my spiffy new calendar that I made which outlines when to post my review (and other) posts, I'm not too worried. (Organization, FTW!) Hopefully that calendar will also help me in ensuring I get my 1K words a day in for Camp NaNoWriMo. (See tomorrow's post for my progress on that!). Anyways, here's my book haul for the week
Beg for Mercy and Falling Into You were on sale at Barnes and Noble when I picked them up, as was Charade. I picked up Charade and plan on reviewing that soon since I received an ARC of the second book in that series. I'm looking forward to reading all these books given the good things I've heard about them. Did any of y'all read these? What'd you think?
For Review (via Netgalley or from Publishers directly):
With all these galleys, I'm going to be seriously busy but with the release dates for some of these in August (and one in October) I should have plenty of time. And besides, given how fast I read and that I've already planned it all out on the blog calendar, I've got no worries. Oh, just an fyi, the cover for Elite on the version I have is different than what is posted on GoodReads (the picture above). You can find the new cover (which is awesome) on the author's website, HERE.
