Stacking the Shelves & Week in Review 2/21/15

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature hosted by Tynga's Reviews. It's about sharing what I've added to my shelves this week.

Hallelujah! It was a slow book week! Every week I accidentally buy way too many books and add a ton to my Kindle for review. The books just kept piling and piling on, but for once, I didn't add much to my shelves this week! Normally, this would make me sad, but I'm actually a little bit relieved (and so is my bank account!). There weren't a lot of eARCs addeed to NetGalley or Edelweiss either, so it gave me a chance to figure out what I already have on deck without piling more on top. So, this will mostly be a weekly recap. I did post a lot this week!

Here is this week's meager haul:



WHAT? Seriously? I bought no physical books this week. That hasn't happened in like, 900 years! 

Beware, the Apocalypse! 

For my Kindle

  12. Yay, good for you not buying any books! That is wonderful! Also, I am absolutely DYING to read Under a Painted Sky! I didn't request it though, I figured they'd decline me, but now I am reconsidering. If not, I suppose I will just pre-order ;) Hope you enjoy these, and have a GREAT week!
