Stacking The Shelves is a weekly feature hosted by Tynga's Reviews. Go there to find the complete list of all the participating blogs.
Happy Saturday everyone! I love this feature because I can get a real sense of what bloggers are excited about reading soon. Last week, I was able to get to look at, and post comments on, about 50 blogs! This week, I will really amp it up and try and comment on EVERY blog that participates. Will I succeed? Well, I am sure to have my work cut out for me as last week over 100 blogs registered on the linky link! Also, I would love some new followers, so if you like what you see, please follow me and let me know in the comments so I can follow you back.
Read This Week:
Both books were wonderful, but my favorite read of the week was The Nightingale. My friends all are reading The Nightingale and after reading it I can see why! It is such an epic saga of French survival during WWII. The characters are beautiful and the situations are heartbreaking. I will post a full review of this amazing book next week on my blog. But I can tell you now, this will be one of my favorite books of the year.
Acquired from NetGalley:
I finally got a "Wish Granted" from NetGalley! I think this is as rare as a unicorn sighting, so I feel really lucky right now!
Won From the YA Contemporary Scavenger Hunt:
Book Store Finds:
I found these used books at a fantastic bookstore last Saturday night. My husband & I had a fun date night that included (yes) a long browse at a cool bookstore! I already read Mr. Penumbra's 24-hour bookstore, but I want my husband to read it. And someday, when I have a whole week (or two) to devote to it, I will read all 775 pages of Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell. It will be a personal reading challenge...
What books did you get this week? Which ones are you most excited to read? For me, I am very ready to read How It Feels To Fly. It looks like a very special YA book.
