Stacking the shelves #2

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews. It's a chance to share what new books and swag we received from giveaways, for review, and bought. (ebooks too!)

I'm so glad I started doing this meme last week. This week was INSANE, guys. You're not gonna believe what I got in the mail and for review! Crazyyyyy awesome-ness. There's a lot of exciting stuff happening, too! So let me fill you in. I'm currently doing the read-a-thon hosted by My Shelf Confessions (button on sidebar). It's going great-- I hope to finish a few books.  I already finished the MLP graphic novel.

I also signed up for a blog tour of a book I already have--and am super excited about-- called Cobweb Bride. More info to follow, it's not until the end of August. I'm also doing the ArmchairBEA! I'll post more on that later, too.

Onto this weeks stacking: I bought a short stack of books while working at the friends of the library bookstore. Then I received 3 book review requests. And the most awesome thing is I got two books and tons of swag from giveaways! Getting books in the mail is way exciting.


The Borgia Bride by Jeanne Kalogridis
Life of Pi by Yann Martel
The Summoning by Armstrong 


The Loved, The Lost, and the Dreaming by Michelle Browne

Quite an AMAZING week. I am SO thankful for all of this. I really am. It made me so happy. I am now determined to snag a copy of Cinder at my local library (all checked out) or somewhere! And now I'm off to bed, Goodnight all..Happy Reading!

Comments: Have you read any of these books? What do you think of them? Are you participating in any Read-A-Thons this month?

    1. I have too, actually! I picked it up on a whim and read the back and was so intrigued! For 1$ I knew I couldn't go wrong ;)

  7. Oh, you had an AWESOME week, Diamond! Especially the Scarlet stuff. And it's signed!!!! I may be a little...a whole lot jealous. :p I never win giveaways haha it's like a curse.

    I read two of the books you bought, The Summoninig and Life Of Pi. I really liked them both. If you enjoy Life Of Pi and haven't already, you have got to see the movie. The visual effects are stunning, and tiger. There's a tiger. On a boat. Who can resist seeing that?

    1. Haha, awesome! Yeah I look forward to reading The Summoning! I will wait to see the movie until after I read the book :) u should enter the Clear Your Shelf giveaway I'm doing soon, starts May 7 !
