Stacking the Shelves: May and BEA Edition

A weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews

Hi Everyone,
May is almost over. Can you believe it? I can't. Where did this month go? Where is this year going? But now that it is drawing to a close it is time for my monthly Stacking the Shelves. If you haven't been following me for awhile (hey new followers, hey!) then you might not know that I'm on a book buying ban. And then last month I mentioned my serious addiction to Netgalley and how I'm trying to be better about not impulsively requesting books from there. Well I am happy to report, I did good on both accounts this month.  I only bought two books and got three for review. YAY ME! Who's proud of me? I'm proud of me

But I know what you're thinking, this post is going to be super boring then. NOPE! The main focus of this is going to be spotlighting the books I got at BEA. So if you don't have any of the books you saw in my TBR and you want to add them to yours or learn a little bit more about them you can.


The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson - Add to Goodreads
I loved Since You've Been Gone and I've been wanting to read more of her books. But while her backlist doesn't interest me, this sounds fantastic!

The Crown's Game by Evelyn Skye - My Review
I've been waiting on this book for like a year and a half and it did not disappoint. I mostly listened to the audio but I also have a pretty finished copy to stare at.

For Review

Cure for the Common Universe by Christian McKay Heidicker - Add to Goodreads
This is contemporary romance set in a video game rehab clinic. If there is one thing I know it's that I love books about nerdy teens finding love.

The Gallery of Lost Species by Nina Berkhout - Add to Goodreads
The lovely folks at St. Martin's press sent me a beautiful finished copy of this. I hope to read it but it came right after I got back from BEA so I was a bit overwhelmed.

White Sand by Brandon Sanderson, Julius Gopes, and Ross Campbell - Add to Goodreads
Things I love: Brandon Sanderson, fantasy, graphic novels. Combine all three and make it Read Now on Netgalley and you have me hook, line, and sinker.


Okay so there are a lot of books here, obviously. I don't want to take too much time talking about them because that would take forever and I'm trying not to write super long reviews so why do super long Stacking The Shelves. But I will mention the age and genre for the book and you can learn more by heading over to Goodreads by clicking on the title. Or if you want to know more leave me a comment or hit me up on Twitter and I will tell you all about it.

  1. Whoa!! That was a lot of BEA books!! Lol!! I was too new to it all and didn't grab as many! But my TBR pile still suffers! Haha! Hope you enjoy all the new reads!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, stop by then if you can!

  2. After that BEA haul you didn't need to buy any books! Ha ha. :)

  3. So many books from BEA. I hope you love all your new BEA books.

    Grace @ Books of Love

  4. I got a crazy number of BEA books since I drove in and out of the city every day - I didn't pile them all up in one place until the end, and... I've already read five of them, though, so I think I"m doing good! Now I just have to practice restraint and not pick up a million other books other places. I. Can. Do. It.

    Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction

  5. You got lots of great titles this month! I can't wait to see your reviews on some of your BEA titles! Enjoy!

    Jamie @ Books and Ladders

  6. ALL THE BEA BOOKS!! And I'm thinking of buying the Morgan Matson book because I loved Since You've Been Gone too... I think I'll wait to see what you think!

  7. I really want to read the Crown's game too! You got so manyyyyyyy books from BEA! I hope you enjoy them all :)
