Stacking the Shelves and Showcase Sunday (16)

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's ReviewsShowcase Sunday is hosted by Books, Biscuits and Tea.
These memes are a replacement of The Story Siren's In My Mailbox.

Stacking the Shelves and Showcase Sunday make a place to showcase your new books,
whether you obtained them through the post or otherwise.

I received some very, very exciting ARCs this week! I have had How to Save a Life on my wishlist ever since it was released in the US, so I am ecstatic that a UK publisher has decided to publish it - I can't wait to delve into it. Defiance is a book that I'm really looking forward to, too, as hopefully I'll be participating in the blog tour for that one. I also received Wolf Pact and two adult books, Sworn Secret and The Secret Supper Club.

Unfortunately I only received one swap book this week, Guitar Highway Rose, even though I have been waiting to receive other book exchanges for more than a week now. Hopefully they will arrive sometime soon...

As you may know, I can't resist a Christmas book and so I picked up The Perfect Christmas straight away when I spotted it in a charity shop. I've also been after Beautiful Disaster for a while, despite the controversy, so I picked a copy up from the supermarket this week!

What did you get this week?


  1. I read beautiful disaster and absolutely loved it! Forget all the controversy, and just go ahead and read it!! People usually really love it (like myself) or hate it (unlike myself lol) but it's become one of my favorite reads all year! Go for it girl! P.S. I'm totally jealous that you got defiance!
