Stacking the Shelves #13

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's @ Tynga's Reviews. It's a chance to showcase all the books we bought, won, and received for review-- whether they're ebooks or physical books.
It's been a full, busy week participating in Bout of Books. I also had some sadness this week attending a memorial for a coworker I used to work with who passed away. My mom knew just how to lighten my mood by taking me to Barnes & Noble and buying me a book :)  I requested more books than usual last week, hence the several books for review this week that I really don't have time for. I am behind on reviews though, so I'm hoping all the books I've read this week will help me catch up because I'm trying to schedule posts, like, a month ahead. I'd settle for even two weeks haha. 
What'd you get this week?

  1. Great haul this week. I really want to read the Goddess Girl books. Enjoy!

    My STS.

    1. Thanks Jillyn! Yeah I'm super excited to read it looks so cute ^_^

  2. I have never read any Leigh Fallon books, I'm looking forward to seeing how you get on with them.
    How fab is that cover for The Distance Between Us! I'm going to buy my copy today so we can both read it this week and pretend we have no review books waiting! Or ummhmm classic challenge which I haven't yet started :O
    Sorry to hear about your co-worker.

    1. Yay! Excited to start it. I'm surprised you haven't read Fallon, do u plan to?
      Tweet me when you're down to start!


    2. I'm only starting to read more fantasy/paranormal over the last year or so and never really heard of LF until earlier this year. I'll see how you get on with them! I could read them and see if they make my Green Giant slot but I'll leave you do the ground work first to see if I should bother :O

  3. You got books with such beautiful covers. Happy reading.

  4. Cool haul. Happy reading :)


  5. I thought about snagging Relativity for review but I'm just so packed. I hope you like it - can't wait to hear what you think!

    I have yet to read Brian Jacques but he's on my must read soon list since I snatched up a copy of Redwall from my used bookstore.

    1. Oh em gee yes u HAVE to read Brian Jacques! His series is one I read over and over again :P

  6. Ooo, The Distance Between Us! I still need to read that book. It's been a while since it came out, but I haven't managed to buy or borrow a copy yet! YIKES! D:

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a fantastic week!

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

  7. I've heard a lot of good things about The Distance Between Us and it's on my TBR already.

    As for Carrier of Mark, I have heard a not so good review about it. But I hope it works for you.

    Happy reading!
