Stacking the Shelves #28

This feature is hosted by Tynga of Tynga's Reviews

Hey everyone, gosh this week has been crazy, upsetting and awesome all at once. Have you ever had a week like that? I hadn't in a really long time until this week.

Despite my plan to limit the e-ARC's that I request, I couldn't help but raid NetGalley this week. I didn't expect to get approved for the ones that I really wanted but it was worth a shot.However I finished the week with 5 NetGalley grabs including much hyped about, The Winner's Curse.I got an email Friday morning that NetGalley was allowing access to the first 100 people to click Read Now on The Winner's Curse. I can still hardly believe that I was able to grab an e-ARC of it. So YAY!

I also grabbed two off of Edelweiss. They both don't release until June so I've got some time on those. I am excited to read them but also relieved that they don't need to be read this month.

One of my favorite people Meredith of Pandora's Books insisted on sending me a belated birthday gift. I tried to tell her that she didn't have to, but she didn't listen to me. Well when I got the package on Tuesday night, there was a hole in it. I opened it and discovered Charm & Strange which was on my wishlist. I had to DM her on Twitter and ask if there was anything else in the package because of the hole. Of course I didn't want to sound greedy but I suspected something wasn't right.

Well turns out a second book escaped somewhere between NY & CA. Yeah that's a big distance. I was angry on Meredith's behalf because this girl has a friggin' heart of gold. Unfortunately crap happens and it sucks but there's not much you can do about it. I hope whoever has the missing book, is enjoying it.

Enough of my incessant rambling. Here are the books I got this week,

  1. I got She's Not Invisible from NetGalley, too! Congrats on all the other books (I'm especially jealous of Say What You Will and The Things You Kiss Goodbye). And what a bummer that one of your birthday books got lost in the mail. :(
