Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.
I hardly EVER do Stacking the Shelves, but I got so many awesome books this week that I HAD to share! 🙂
If you’re on Twitter, you might’ve seen the #booksfortrade hashtag that started recently. It’s AWESOME. All you have to do is post a picture (or list) of the books you no longer want and would like to trade, and you are able to trade them with other people for books you DO want! A lot of the time it happens pretty quickly too, which is great. For example, I posted that I was interested in finding an ARC of I.W. Gregorio’s None of the Above, and I traded with Eden Grey for my HC of The Girl from the Well in TWELVE minutes! How cool is that? So this week, I received None of the Above from Eden and Article 5 (which I traded for my HC of Dorothy Must Die) from Sarah!
I also received the NOVL box I won from the amazing people at The NOVL (the cool people at Little, Brown Books for Young Readers). April’s NOVL box was curated by Jennifer E. Smith who I LOVE, so I was so excited to get it! I loved everything in it. The only problem was that I actually already own all three of Jen’s books as well as an ARC of her new book, so the only new book I got is Jessica Darling’s It List, which I’m looking forward to reading! Plus, I got some whoopie pie mix I can’t wait to try! I’m not sure what I’m going to do with the duplicate Jen books, but it’ll probably mean a fun giveaway! Thanks so much to the lovely people at The NOVL for this awesome box!
Today I went to Books-A-Million with a friend of mine and bought a few things! I got: The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh (I CANNOT WAIT TO READ THIS ONE), issues #3 & 4 of Return of the Living Deadpool (both for cheaper than the list price of ONE!), and Grace’s Guide: The Art of Pretending to Be a Grown-up (for $4.97!!). I got ALL of this for only $21 which I was pretty excited about.
One more thing! I was waiting on my friend to get her stuff together at the library (where she works) before we went to BAM, and I found a HC copy of Meg Wolitzer’s The Interestings in the sale section for ONE DOLLAR! It has a part cut out in the back where the barcode used to be (it was a library copy that was replaced) but it’s still in pretty good shape and it was A DOLLAR! I loved her most recent book Belzhar, so I’m looking forward to trying this one.
Did you get any books this week? Tell me what you got in the comments or send me pictures!
