Stacking The Shelves (23) and A Week In Review

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly event hosted by Tynga's Reviews.  It features books you've recently added to your shelves, be it from the library, bookstore, or ebooks.


 
This week I received a couple books from a few different outlets!
 
Library:
 
 
I've been wanting to read this ever since I saw they were making a movie!  Hopefully I'll be able to start it soon now that I'm getting a little caught up on my reviews!
 
 
Gifts:
 
 
I received this in hardcover for my birthday and I love it!  This is one of my favorite books and it has such a pretty cover!  I've already reread it two times in the past few days :)
 
 
Spring Fling:
 
 
This cover is so pretty - I can't wait to start!
 
 
The blurb and the cover look very interesting.  I can't wait to start!
 
 
For Review:
 
 
New book for review!  Now that I'm getting more caught up with my reviews I've allowed myself to start accepting review requests with the understanding that the reviews won't be up right away.
 
 
I haven't read a book like this... well probably ever.  I'm excited to start!
 
 
 
What did you add to your shelves this week?
 
 
Announcements:
I know, I know, the last day of the month has passed and no wrap-up post!  Well never fear!  I will have that post up within the week.  Because I had such an off month and just reread a bunch of books so I wouldn't add to my review pile it'll be a little weird counting things up.  Give me a few extra days and I'll have it up!
 
Also, let me know if you guys would like me to do more comparison posts between books and their movie adaptations.  I thought about doing it for The Hunger Games series and for The Fault In Our Stars or I might just do a regular review for those movies.  I'm not sure yet... let me know what you guys think!
 
If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you know it was my birthday this past week (that's where A Long, Long Sleep came from!)!  Another gift I received was a $50 Amazon gift card to spend on all the ebooks my heart desires!  Isn't that just the best gift for any bookish person??  I'm just so excited!  I can't decide which books to buy!
 
Last thing!  What are your guys' favorite music artists?  I've been looking for some new music to listen to recently!  Let me know your favorites and I'll check them out!  Recently I've been listening to Maroon 5, Lindsey Stirling, Train, Andy Grammer, Christina Perri, Sheppard, Coldplay, and The Script.
 
A Week In Review:
Wednesday: WWW (10)
BONUS Friday: Just Caspian Teasers!
 
 
I hope you have a lovely week!

  1. Ooh, we share a love for A Long Long Sleep! Yay! :D

    My Spring Fling is coming up very soon, so I will be getting new books too! I'm so excited!

    I love Christina Perri and I also love Imagine Dragons. I think you would like them, if you don't already like them. :)

    Awesome post!

    1. Seriously? I haven't come across anyone else really who loved it too! :D

      Yay! I hope you get some good ones!

      I do! I have Christina Perri's most recent album and Imagine Dragons' Night Visions album!

      Thanks :D

    2. I've met one other person, but that's about it! I'm very excited and nervous to read the second book! What about you?

      Yay! Another Imagine Dragons fan! :D

      You're welcome! :)

    3. We've got to find more people! I'm sure there's a group on Goodreads somewhere... I actually just found out the author wrote another book! I can't wait to read it either! It looks like it's more centered around Otto and his past and future - should be interesting!

  2. Great post Laura :) I think you'll love The Duff, it looks very different from the movie which I'm yet to see but the book is brilliant!

    1. Thanks! I actually just read it last night... eh it was pretty good. Not necessarily ground-breaking for me but still okay :) Yeah from the trailers I've seen the movie looks a lot different than the book but that might not be a bad thing in this case just because it's contemporary you know? I can't wait to see the movie and see how it measures up!

  4. I always like to see book vs. movie comparisons- I think they're interesting, especially when they're done right! ;)
    It's always nice to be relatively caught up on review copies- I keep getting more every time I finish one. But the books you've gotten look like they'll be well worth the read.

    1. Haha for sure! I also love reading the book to movie comparisons that take into account how good they each are individually.
      Yes! Me too! I almost wish I could just finish the list and not have any for a month or two but I don't know how well that would go over! I'd probably run out of library and my own books to read! Yes they do :)
