What's New? Stacking the Shelves

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews. Hop on over there to ogle what other bloggers got this week.

For review:
I must admit, the cover of this made me laugh out loud when I opened the package. It happened to be on a tough Wednesday afternoon.

I actually read this with my ears back in October and found it almost unbearably suspenseful. So happy to have it for review. 

Purchased: I have started a shopping cart for my gift cards but have not hit send yet.

If you leave a comment, I will definitely stop by and try to comment back - unless commenters have to sign onto Discus or whatever that's called. But I will check out your stack!
