Stacking the Shelves #8

Stacking the Shelves

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. It’s a chance to share any books you’ve bought, borrowed, or received in the past 7 days. All of the books on this list are linked to Goodreads.


I hope you’ve had a great week filled with books and holiday cheer! I sort of let go a bit seeing as nobody ever buys me books for Christmas (probably because they assume I have every book ever written) so I decided to find myself some bookish presents. I have no shame.

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz


The last two books have been on my TBR list for FOREVER so when I found them at my local used bookstore—okay, say what you will about supporting the author, but a) I’m poor, and b) I think of it as a rescue mission to keep books off the shelves of used bookstores and in my loving, underpaid arms—I made an unladylike noise (although when are my noises ever NOT unladylike?) and nearly impaled myself on a display trying to grab them from their respective shelves. CHRISTMAS CAME EARLY YOU GUYS IT’S A THING.

Anyway, that’s what I’ve added to my library this week. I’d love to hear what books you’ve found recently, so link me up in the comments! Happy holidays!
Love, Sam
