Stacking the Shelves: 04 May 2019

Hello bookworms! May the fourth be with you!! Welcome to my weekly Stacking the Shelves, which is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews & Reading Reality. As a reminder, this is where we discuss books that you have added to your shelves regardless if they are virtual or physical. This means that you can include books you buy in a store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts, and ebooks!

So this is bit longer than I had originally thought. Guess I went a little overboard, but it’s books.

NetGalley/Edelweiss Approvals

  • Gravemaidens by Kelly Coon – This is my MOST anticipated read this year, so I almost died when I got the approval email. I’ll be reading this one soon!!
  • The Grace Year by Kim Liggett – And this is my second most anticipated read of the year! I couldn’t believe that you could request it on Edelweiss (I had to wish for it on NetGalley), and I was approved the next morning!
  • Hattie’s Home for Broken Hearts by Tilly Tennant – I’m really excited for this feel-good summer romance! I’m on tour for this one with bookouture, and I can’t wait. I love their books!


  • The Written by Ben Galley – I’m excited be taking part in the MASSIVE blog tour being hosted by The Write Reads! (My post is on June 27th!)
  • The Space Between Time by Charlie Laidlaw – This contemporary fiction/dark comedy explores love, loss, and mental illness. I’m on tour for this one with R&R Book Tours, and more bloggers are still needed. Here is the sign up! (My post is on June 16th!)
  • Two Like Me and You by Chad Alan Gibbs – I’m on tour for this YA contemporary, which is being hosted by Giselle at Xpresso Book Tours. (My post is on May 28th!) This will be my first Xpresso Book tour, so I can’t wait!

Physical Books

Books to Review

  • Sky Queen by Judy Kundert – Thank you to BookSparks! This one is part of their SRC2019, and I can’t wait to dive into it.
  • The Last Resort by Marissa Stapley – My Goodreads giveaway win from Graydon books. When couples who are struggling in their marriage are stuck on a resort due to a tropical storm and can’t leave, nothing can go wrong…right?! This one is also a part of BookSparks SRC2019.
  • Star-Crossed by Minnie Darke – My Goodreads giveaway win from Crown Publishing. A love story based on astrological signs. This one sounds dreamy!
  • A Nearly Normal Family by M.T. Edvardsson – This was a complete surprise that showed up from Celadon Books. I missed out on this one on Bookish First, so I was so happy when this baby was sitting on my porch! This legal thriller sounds so good!
  • Mom’s Perfect Boyfriend by Crystal Hemmingway – Thank you to Galbadia Press for this rom-com! It looks like such a fun read and perfect for the upcoming summer season.
  • Otherwise Engaged by Lindsey J. Palmer – Thank you to Skyhorse Publishing for this beauty. I feel like this one is going to be a train wreck for the poor MC, but I can’t wait to see what happens.
