Stacking The Shelves

Stacking the Shelves

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


 Y'all!  It has been so long since I've hosted Stacking the Shelves.  I have so many books in my stack!  Don't worry- I won't make this post miles long; I'll list many of them and only highlight a few.

It's the holiday season!  It got suddenly very cold here where I live yesterday, and that just makes it feel all the more Christmas-y.  :)  We also just got back from a vacay with our boy- we went to see the Biltmore House all decked out in Christmas cheer- and so my little family is in full-on Christmas spirit now.  How about y'all?  Are you celebrating a holiday this month?  Are you ready?  Are you eating so much?  lol  And what books are on your wish list?

First, a sorta-Santa pic of the boy.  I can't resist sharing.

Now, the ARCs:  I got The Book Jumper by Mechthild Glaser at a work function, and The Playbook by Kwame Alexander from a work mentor.  I picked up The Book Jumper based entirely on it's cover (which I know you're not supposed to do, but I do all the time) and my work mentor gave me The Playbook when she saw me reading Booked.

And new books!  The giving season has begun, and I love love love finding packages in my mailbox shaped like books.  :)  Coworkers gave me Kendra by Coe Booth, Naomi and Ely's No Kiss List by Rachel Cohn and  David Levithan, and 37 Things I Love (in No Particular Order) by Kekla Magoon.  A local church was giving out free copies of The Hero of Hacksaw Ridge one day at the town's main intersection.  My aunt sent me Christmas Hearts by Tim Roehl.  And I participated in a Secret Santa exchange via The Broke and the Bookish blog, and received Cinder by Marissa Meyer, Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes, Spot's First Walk, and Llama Llama Jingle Bells.  (The last two are board books for me to share with the boy, of course.)

And finally, the library.  Ohmygoodness.... I have an addiction.  Thank goodness library books are free (when returned on time)!  Rich and Pretty by Rumaan Alam, Booked by Kwame Alexander, Reagan: The Life by H.W. Brands, Beezus and Ramona by Beverly Cleary, Ramona and Her Father by Beverly Cleary, Ramona and Her Mother by Beverly Cleary, Ramona the Brave by Beverly Cleary, Ramona the Pest by Beverly Cleary, Ramona Forever by Beverly Cleary, Ramona Quimby, Age 8 by Beverly Cleary, Ramona's World by Beverly Cleary, Animals That Make Me Say Ewww! by Dawn Cusick, Animal Tongues by Dawn Cusick, Get the Scoop on Animal Poop! by Dawn Cusick, Grace for President by Kelly DiPucchio, Let Them Eat Dirt by B.
