Stacking The Shelves #16

Stacking The Shelves is a weekly feature hosted by Tynga's Reviews.  Check out their webiste for a complete list of all the participating blogs .


Happy Weekend, everyone!  I've been sick most of the week, so I rested up...and read a lot of books.  I still feel really pressured to hurry up and read certain books, so I am re-thinking my approach to deciding what I will read.  I hope to have a better strategy in place by next month and that it will lead to less stress for me in the future.  My favorite read of the week is (of course) Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas.  I love this series so much!  What was your favorite book of the week? Let me know in the comments.

  6. Sadly, Crown of Midnight has been the weakest for me! And I did not like The Girl From Everywhere at all. I'm in the minority though. :D I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a fabulous weekend. :)

    1. I'm happy you told me your honest opinion! I did enjoy Crown of Midnight, but I haven't read The Girl From Everywhere yet. Did you post a review? I would love to read your thoughts on both books.

  7. I read TGFE last weekend and it is SOOOOOO good! I hope you love it as much as I did! Also I'm listening to Nightingale audio right now and really enjoying it!

    1. Everyone I work with is reading The Nightingale so that is my first priority. The I will read The Girl From Everywhere. So many books, so little time!

  8. Great haul! I really want to read The Nightingale and The Girl From Everywhere, they sound amazing! Happy reading!

    1. I can't believe they put TGFE up on NetGalley and that I actually got approved! I don't usually get the popular books!

      Delete
  9. Great haul! I've heard nothing but amazing things about The Love that Split the World. I can't wait to dive into my copy. The Girl from Everywhere also looks really great. I'm interested to hear what you think!

    1. After I read The Nightingale, TGFE will be my next read. Hopefully I will get to it on Monday or Tuesday.

    1. Thank you Brooke, you have a lovely blog! Yes, I am trying to read all the ToG books now, in readiness for the next book. I hope I make it!

  11. Wow, some great books here! The Girl From Everywhere looks amazing, I may have to request that myself! And I also have The Nightingale to read soon. Hope you enjoy them all, and thanks for visiting my blog! :)

    1. Everyone at my work is reading The Nightingale! And since they all know how much I read, they lent me a copy. It is really good, but I am being swept away by it when I should be supervising homework! I guess that is what a good book does, right?

      Delete
  12. I have The Girl From Everywhere and am really looking forward to it. I was able to read The Love That Split the World in December and found it hard to put down. Enjoy!

    1. I am deep into The Nightingale, by Kristin Hannah right now. But as soon as I finish this book The Girl Form Everywhere and The Love That Split The World will be my next books. I can't wait!

      Delete
  13. I finally added Sarah Maas to my TBR List after seeing it everywhere! I can't wait to start it.

    Thanks for visiting my Stacking the Shelves post :)

    1. If you love YA Fantasy, then you are going to love SJM's books! I would start the Throne of Glass series with the prequel, The Assassin's Blade. It gives a lot of backstory that will come in handy when reading the other books. Happy Reading!

      Delete
  14. When I did a lot of read and reviews for authors, I ended up getting stressed by deadlines and taking on too many at the same time! I don't commit to as many now so I can read the books I bought for myself. Reading is no fun when it gets stressful! Thanks for visiting my blog this week!

    1. Your welcome! Yes, I need to learn the art of saying, "No Thanks" to reviewing umpteen books. I am putting a lot of stress on myself because I want to have good content on my blog. But I need to balance that with remembering to read just because I want to. Thanks for stopping by.

    1. I am loving The Nightingale! But it is very intense! I am reading, and praying silently, that none of the MCs die...

    1. Yes, it was a fun novel. The scenes with Tony Stark are really funny! Now if they would make this into a movie, I would be super happy!

    1. I know! There are so many great books out there right now! Black Widow is a really fast book to read ( I read it in a day). The Sarah J. Maas books area also page-turners. So much is going on, you won't wan to stop reading. Thanks for stopping by.

    1. Thanks Elizabeth. Keep reading the series. It is so much fun to read!!! If you like SJM, then you should also read her book, A Court of Thorns and Roses. It is a re-telling of the Beauty & The Best story.
