Stacking the Shelves and my holiday reading plans.


StS

Stacking The Shelves – hosted by Tynga’s Reviews, is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

I’m hoping to catch up on reading during the holidays. I have a few review book and a few just for fun.

Received for Review:

Mind Games by Kiersten White via Amazon vine
Hooked by Liz Fichera via the publisher
The Chocolate Kiss by Laura Florand via Netgalley (I’m reading this one now – I like it so far)

Purchased – read – need to write a review:
Lumberjack In Love by Penny Watson (cute book)

I’ve had the following books on my shelf and I’m hoping to be able to read them in the next week too. There’s something about posting it publicly that seems to help me follow through Smile

Project Paper Dolls by Stacey Kade (Bloggers – Stacey just tweeted that this one is up on Netgalley!)
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer & The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

That should keep me busy for the next week or so!

Do you have any plans to catch up on your reading or will you be too busy over the holidays?

  1. Great choices! My copy of Mind Games should come from Amazon Vine this week. I just saw the book by Stacey Kade and downloaded it this morning. I'm trying to catch up on some books from my TBR mountain during this Christmas break. My new books posts are here at Inside of a Dog and Ms. Martin Teaches Media. Happy reading!

  2. I'm so jealous of your copy of Mind Games. I hope it's awesome! I agree with you about posting publicly: I feel like if I have something to be held accountable to, I follow through a lot better. Not always, but more often than not.

    Happy holidays :)

  7. Mind Games sounds absolutely amazing! I love Kiersten White's Paranormalcy so I hope it doesn't disappoint. I really like the cover of it. :) I hope you enjoy all of the books!

    1. I'm surprised at how short it is (237 pages) but I can't wait to dive in! I loved her other series too.
