Stacking the Shelves #75 - A Small Haul because for the First Time in Forever I was Capable of Something like Self-Restraint

Stacking the Shelves

As you can see from the title, I didn't go all-out with requesting/library/buying and I am extremely proud of myself!


Yes, yes, I am doing exactly that.

So, I know I said I wouldn't request anything on Netgalley but then I saw a contemporary that looked great, as well being able to download a book because a book club I'm part of contacted the publicist. SO YAY!

Netgalley Books Received:
The Boy Next DoorThe Secrets Between You and Me (Stolen Kisses #2)

THEY'RE CONTEMPORARIES. And they look really good. And I can't wait to read them! Squee!

What books did you get this weekend?

  1. You've shown incredible restraint! I tried, but didn't do do well. Better than I usually do though. I'm really looking forward to reading The Boy Next Door. Enjoy your books and have a great weekend!

  4. I'm trying to deal with pulling back on galleys because I rarely actually get to them in a timely fashion. Happy reading!

  11. OH GO YOU. Self control. I'm so proud. :') I was very self-controlled at the library this week too and only brought home Mortal Coil and Black Heart. Yaaaay I might actually (sort of) catch up on my TBR soon! The Boy Next Door looks super cute!
