Stacking The Shelves is all about the books we are adding to our shelves each week, (and filling our kindle) sharing with you our excitement for our newest titles and maybe have you discover a new book in the process! Hosted by Tynga over at Tynga's Reviews
Hi all. Hope you're all keeping well and enjoyed the holidays. I'm glad to be back and I'm feeling a lot more relaxed which is the way I hope to stay. I plan to cut down a lot on the amount of books I take for review and to read a lot more books just for myself, some of which I'll write reviews for and some I won't.
I took a step into the adult world near the end of last year, reading The Mercy Thompson series and The Charley Davidson series, and while I enjoyed these immensely, I still think I'll be quite fussy about what adult books I pick up, but you may see some adult titles popping up on the blog, not just purely YA anymore. Still no erotica though.
For fun, and in an effort to clear some of my tbr, I'm taking part in some challenges this year. In the tabs above, you can see my own challenge that I've set, the ABC challenge, so I hope to read at least 50 books off my tbr with this, no review books allowed. And I'm taking part in the Dystopian Challenge and the Contemp and Chick Lit Challenge with The Young Adult Book Club. And Never Too Old for Y.A. Books are having a yearly challenge with a new fun challenge every month. January's challenge is to read 4 books with blue covers, so we'll see how I go. No pressure though.
Now onto my new books. I'm only including books that I received since I've come back to blogging in this STS. I got a lot of books as Christmas pressies and also picked up a lot of freebies from my wishlist over the Christmas and it's just too much so I'm not including those. So, since the beginning of January, I received:-
Hidden Gates by D.T. Dyllin (Edelweiss)
Dare You To by Katie McGarry (Netgalley)
Blood-Kissed Sky by J.A. London (4.5 of 5 stars, review to come soon)
