Stacking the Shelves (89)

November 29, 2014 Stacking the Shelves 13

Stacking the Shelves
Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews where you showcase all of the books you received for the week, whether it be physical or electronic books!

 Hi everyone 🙂 I hope y’all had an awesome Thanksgiving! I’m Canadian so our Thanksgiving was back in October. Did you do any Black Friday shopping? Black Friday has just recently worked its way north of the border so it’s not a BIG deal for me, I usually do most of that type of sale shopping on Boxing Day but I think I will meander around some stores tomorrow to check out some of the weekend sales. And I will probably check out Book Outlet as well, because… well that’s inevitable! I started Christmas decorating last weekend and I hope to get everything finished this weekend. HOPEFULLY, because I won’t have much time in the weekends ahead because those are devoted to actual Christmas shopping! Other than that, I hope to have a pretty mellow weekend, with lots of reading.

I didn’t get a lot of books this week, but I did get some lovely review gems…

Both of the adult titles I got this week, The Pocket Wife and The Daughter, were titles I hadn’t heard of before my browsing fest on Edelweiss last weekend. I hadn’t set out to pick up any new books, I just wanted to check out some of the 2015 adult titles in the catalogs but lo and behold I still managed to snag two 😛 They are both mystery/thrillers, which I have really been into lately (or gotten back into…) so I can’t wait to start those in the new year!

Vanished, Emancipated and Made You Up I got in another one of HarperCollin’s mass binge’s! They always upload there books in droves, which I love because I’d say they have a large claim on my TBR list 😛 I’m excited to read all three, and I actually hadn’t heard of Made You Up before this week but it sounds fantastic!

I’m going to be on the blog tour for The Body Electric and I am so excited! It sounds awesome and seriously… THAT COVER! It’s absolutely stunning.

None this week!

Short and sweet this week! What books have you gotten lately? Link up 🙂

      Thanks Charnell 🙂

      Emancipated definitely has an intriguing synopsis, in the end that won me over so I couldn’t resist lol.

    Oh man, Black Friday is crazy, they showed some footage on then news, people stepping over one another and I’m staying well away from that. Can’t wait for Boxing Day though. 😉 How gorgeous is that Made You Up cover though? Love it!

    Ohh I hope you like The Body Electric! I’m not sure I wanted to read it, but I’ll be looking at your review to see if it’ll be something I like or not 🙂

    I had a fantastic Thanksgiving, and I was very successful on Black Friday! Most of my books won’t come in till next week or the following, but I took full advantage of the Book Outlet sales 😉

      The Body Electric was kind of a whim for me, honestly. The cover stunned me, and then I just kept going back to the tour page and looking at the synopsis… so I figured if I was that drawn to the book that I kept looking it back up chances are it was probably something I needed to read soon 😛

      Hehe, Book Outlet 🙂 I’m currently making up my cart now! Whoo!! It’s just too good of a deal to avoid lol. I’m glad your Thanksgiving and Black Friday was great 🙂
