Stacking the Shelves [36]


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!


  • 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!

If you want to find out more about Stacking The Shelves, please visit the official launch page!


Welcome to the last Stacking the Shelves of 2012! I'd like to take a quick moment to thank everyone for participating, on behalf of all of the Tynga's Reviews family. I'd also like to wish you all happy holidays! I hope you're all enjoying some time with family and friends. I am. :) I'm at my parents' place and my brother is home from Australia so this has been a wonderful holiday so far. I've been extremely lucky on the book front since my post at the start of the month, so I have a lot to share. Unfortunately, I don't have pictures of anything because I'm travelling, and I tend to buy ebooks (marked with asterisks), so I hope you'll forgive me!

I got all of my Secret McQueen books with a gift card. I'm really excited about these because I just finished reading SOMETHING SECRET THIS WAY COMES. (You'll see what I thought of it when my first Daring You To Read... post of 2013 goes up in a few weeks.)

So, what did YOU add to your shelves this week?


Born and raised in the Toronto area, Jenn moved to St. John's, Newfoundland, eight years ago for school. She's still in school (thankfully on another degree!), now trapped in her dissertation. When she's not dissertating, which happens more often than it should, Jenn spends her time reading, watching movies, playing volleyball, travelling, and enjoying the local music scene. Her latest addictions: yoga and Almond Crunch cereal.
