Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. It gives us a chance to share with readers what we bought, borrowed, swapped, won or got for review each week. Because I love books, and you love books, so let’s see the books!

Weekly Shenanigans

I only read two books this week again. I still don’t understand how this is my new normal, but I bet it has something to do with me re-reading The Hunger Games. I still do not mind.

1st-place PSISLY.


Posts this Week:

Blogosphere Bulletin

Random Musings:

I…. have no Hunger Games news. This is the first time in awhile. I know it was inevitable and all, but still. I am also in gift-wrapping hell, and “oops I never sent Christmas cards” hell. These are things I must do this weekend, even though I have no time. No time, people! These are the times that I’d be super happy to be rich and famous and have a nanny to watch the kids (not all the time, just so I could blog and sleep and such) and some random person that I could hire to wrap the damn gifts and go to the post office for me. And maybe they could also address the envelopes. I would pay them well. What tasks would you outsource if you had all the money?

Things we need to talk about this week:

Have a fabulous week, loves!

  1. ZOMG THANK YOU. <3 I literally was so. so. amazed when someone tweeted me I was in there. :O LIKE WHAT EVEN. My blog isn't even that big compared to a lot of other book bloggers and ZOMG AMONGST ALL THOSE FAMOUS BOOKTUBERS. *dies* I’m…I’m having a moment.
    My older sister shares your nanny sentiments and therefore kidnaps me copiously. ? Not that I mind too much bc her KIDS ARE CUTE. *ahem* But gee, this time of year is just crazy all over, right? Who needs sleep. *dies because needs sleep*

    ALSO SO MANY PRETTY BOOKS. I’m adoring that cover of The Marked Girl! Your hauls are always full of books I’ve never heard of, gahh, I NEED TO KEEP ON TOP OF ALL THESE RELEASES. ? For someone who read like 299 books this year, I barely read any new release. XDXD

  2. Lots of pretty books!!! I hope you enjoy them all!! I am going to start The Mystery of Hollow Places soon so hope it is good! Thank you for mentioning that about Cait because I totally voted now. Yay bloggers. Also, I am with you wanting to be rich and what not to have a nanny to like blog, clean or run to Target by myself. I actually finished wrapping the kids presents. But we still have two balance bikes and two trikes to put together so really it might be worse. Hope you get everything you need to done and have a lovely week and holiday!

  3. Everyone has been getting those pretty physical ARCs. I hope you enjoy. YOU GOT WINTER SIGNED!!!! OMG!!! So lucky!
    I don’t have to gift wrap anything, only the stuff I’m giving my boyfriend and my little cousin. The rest of the family goes with the Christmas bags and that’s it lol
    I hope you have a good week Shannon 🙂

  4. Yeah! Sounds like you had a great week Shannon! I can’t wait to see what you think about The Girl from Everywhere – it’s one of my most anticipated titles for 2016, so I really hope you enjoy it. 🙂 Thanks for sharing and, as always, fabulous recap! ♥ (And, seriously, how is it almost Christmas? Just last week it felt like it was October!)


    BOOKS. YES BOOKS. I forgot what you got within 5 seconds after reading the post. ANNA AND THE SWALLOW MAN. I read that during BEA yes. Um. TITANS. WOOO. I know you like that series. AND LINKS LINKS LINKSSSS. I NEED LINKS.

  6. Great post and book haul Shannon. Can’t wait for your review of Flawed, it seems like my kind of book. Love your blogosphere bulletin! Already read Tonyalee’s commenting back article and off to vote for Cait and say happy Blogoversary to Lisa now 🙂 hope you finally get ready for Christmas this week 🙂

  7. I am ready for Christmas AND I am ready to roll out my new blog design. That will happen this week during my time off. It’s really hard not to just start doing it, but I’m trying to be patient and wait so I can dedicate my full attention to the roll over.

    Happy Holidays!!

  8. Oh, I really want to read Symptoms of Being Human. That’s awesome you got a copy in the mail! I’m pretty much ready for Christmas but making time to see everyone is always difficult. I hope you get all that you want finished accomplished this week. Don’t stress too much though!!


  9. I heard a few weeks ago about Mike Mullin, very excited! Also excited for the Libba Bray series. I got the Titans ARC this week as well! Great haul! Check out mine in the link below.

  10. There are so many amazing books you have received! I hope you enjoy them all. Quite a few I haven’t heard of, but they all look really good. Thank you for sharing!
