Stacking The Shelves –The Official Launch


As of May 21st, 2017, Stacking the shelves is now co-hosted with Marlene of Reading Reality and now has a new graphic!


Last week was the first Stacking The Shelves week and I was extremely surprised and flattered by its success! In fact, the response was so great that I decided to officially turn it into a meme, guidelines, Mr.Linky and all the Jazz! Don’t worry, I’m keeping it simple, after all it’s all about having fun :)

Weekly Haul memes are a big trend in the blogging world, may it be fashion, make-up, movie blog etc and the most famously known version in the book blogging world is The Story Siren’s In My Mailbox, who was initially inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie. In My Mailbox didn’t fit my needs anymore, so I decided to start my own meme, thus Stacking The Shelves was born!
What is Stacking The Shelves all about?

We are all book lovers and the need to share our enthusiasm is sometimes overwhelming. Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks! 

If you’re anything like me, you are probably hoarding books and even though you are excited about your latest book arrival, it might be a while before you get to review it and Stacking The Shelves is a good way to express your undying enthusiasm for those titles!

How to participate?
It’s super easy!
  • Create your own Stacking The Shelves post. You can use my official graphic or your own, but please link back to Tynga’s Reviews so more people can join the fun!
  • You can set your post any way you want, simple book list, covers, pictures, vlog, sky is the limit!
  • I am posting Stacking The Shelves on Saturdays, but feel free to post yours any day that fits you.
  • Visit Tynga’s Reviews on Saturday and add your link so others can visit you!
  • Visit other participants link to find out what they added to their shelves!
Tynga’s Reviews is all about Paranormal/Dystopian books, for both Adult and Young Adult, but feel free to include any genre you enjoy in your posts. No discrimination here!
If you have any questions please ask away, I'll add a F.A.Q later on =)

Make sure you visit Tynga’s Reviews tomorrow for this week’s Stacking The Shelves post!

  2. I'm glad that you're starting this great meme--I was never one to do the IMM posts, and while I don't post my book hauls often (ha, I rarely get enough in a week to do so anyway), it's nice to finally have a post that will work for me. :) I've done my own little posts in the past (nothing official, none that I would have others participate in), but they were always hit and miss--there one month, gone the next. Lol.

    Hopefully with Stacking the Shelves, I'll keep to a more consistent schedule. :)

    Enjoy!

  9. Thank you Tynga for starting this! So many folks were lost after......you provided a wonderful alternative! It's fun to show off our mail and I was amazed at how many visits I got on my blog last week from this! I even found a few blogs I knew nothing about with the same reading interests as me and not just YA. I mean OMG I love YA with a passion but I enjoy lots of other genre as well. Your meme seems to offer a wider variety! Thanks again!

  29. Climbing aboard a bit late, but count me in!

    Like you, I've seen a similiar meme, but it didn't quite fit for me. While I review just about anything as long as it's a good read, StS is just right. Found you through .Xpresso Reads, btw.

    Thanks for starting this up & looking forward to next week!

  40. Hi

    Random question but instead of weekly can I alter mine to be fortnightly because that is probably when I spend money on books?
