Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!  The hubby and I got a puppy since my last Stacking the Shelves, so I'll be spending Valentine's Day with both my boys.  :)  :)  :)  Meet Tucker!  My new reading buddy.


Isn't he an adorable distraction?  Now back to talking books:

Stacking the Shelves

ARCs for Review!

Can't Look Away by Donna Cooner: I read and enjoyed Skinny, and I got to meet the author, so of course I want to try her latest!

I'll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios:  I've been reading a lot of hype about this one.

Half Wild by Sally Green: Another one I've read a lot of hype about.

Paperweight by Meg Haston

The Improbable Theory of Ana & Zak by Brian Katcher: I love reading Brian's reviews of YA books on www.foreveryoungadult.com, and am hopeful that his book is just as fun!

The Porcupine of Truth by Bill Konigsberg:  Totally judging this book by it's cover.  I love porcupines and the cover is adorbs.

Forbidden by Kimberley Griffiths Little: Another author I've met, and so I totally have to try her book!

The Revelation of Louisa May by Michaela MacColl:  a book about an author of books?  Yes, please!

Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins:  Can you believe I haven't started this trilogy yet?  *hangs head in shame*  Maybe having an ARC of the third book will motivate me.

Finding Paris by Joy Preble:  Even though I had a few qualms about The Sweet Dead Life, I did enjoy the tone.  So I'm hopeful I'll like Finding Paris.

Emancipated by M.G. Reyes:  Emancipated teens... this is a new book topic to me!  Excited to try it.

Thirteen Chairs by Dave Shelton

The Cage by Megan Shepherd:  LOVE LOVE LOVE her Madman's Daughter trilogy; excited to try her new project!

A Cold Legacy by Megan Shepherd:  I'm getting my own copy of this, so I'll pass along this ARC to "my" teens at the library.

Challenger Deep by Neal Shusterman:  a book about a teen with mental illness, with illustrations by the author's son, who struggles with mental illness.  Of course I'm going to support this!

The Baby Sitters Club: Kristy's Great Idea adapted by Raina Telgemeier: I LOVED these books as  kid!  I'm SUPER excited to revisit them in graphic novel format!

Made You Up by Francesca Zappia:  Totally grabbed this because of the GORGEOUS cover.  I want to frame it as wall art!

A Gift!

On my personal blog, Marie's Reads, I'm doing Popsugar's 2015 Reading Challenge.  One of the goals is to read a book with antonyms in the title.  My super aunt sent me this book to fulfill that goal!  Thank you!

  13. I've heard that the Isla books are wonderful. I think I need to add those to my reading list for 2015. Also, I watched a BBC documentary about Alan Turing last night. I still want to go see the new movie, but haven't been able to find time for it.

    Great book haul and there are some on there that I need to read, like right now!

  17. What a big haul. I always wonder over how many we haul per week versus how many we can possibly read in a week. It's no wonder the pile only grows, never shrinks.

  18. Oh my gosh, your puppy is SO CUTE! :D

    You got some wonderful books to read! I really want to read Can't Look Away, I'll Meet You There and Finding Paris - they look excellent.
