Stacking the Shelves (18)



This week I'm joining Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga's Reviews and sharing the books that I acquired throughout the week.




(links to Goodreads)
 
Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins w/swag (Purchased) - Over the 4th of July weekend, I stopped in Hooray for Books in Alexandria, VA to pre-order my copy of Isla in hopes being one of the first 25 who would get the coveted tote and swag as part of the pre-order campaign. I was and my package arrived earlier this week - another perk of pre-ordering. I love indie bookstores!

How to Love by Katie Cotugno (Purchased) - I purchased the e-book of How to Love and read it immediately AND FELL IN LOVE WITH IT. Ever since, I've wanted the gorgeous book to have on my bookshelf and this week I FINALLY got it. I love it and can't wait to read it again.

The Unfinished Life of Addison Stone by Adele Griffin (ARC for review) - Thanks to Soho Teen. I'm looking forward to starting this one AND I'll get to see Adele again at YALLFest. I can't wait to talk to her about her new book!

The Green Teen Cookbook (Finished Copy for review) - Thanks to Zest Books - I acceoted this for review because I thought it would be fun to try some recipes with my teenaged nieces and nephew.

Close Your Eyes, Hold Hands by Chris Bohjalian (Finished Copy for review) - Thanks to Penguin Random House

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn (Library; Audiobook) - I'm reading this one for a book club that I plan to crash in a few weeks!

Let's Get Lost chapter sampler by Adi Alsaid (Won) - I'm excited to read this. This chapter sampler will have to tide me over until I can get the finished copy.

Swimming to Tokyo by Brenda St. John Brown (Won; e-book) - Thank you Brenda!

    1. I try to shop indie when I can! We don't have one locally but I seek them out when I visit a new town or city.
      Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Gone Girl is the best story I read lately! Very ironic and original main idea.
    I recommend it to someone that would like to read something different.

    Stay well,
