Stacking the Shelves (1)

In an effort to be more involved in the blogosphere, I'm trying to add a couple weekly memes to my blogging routine (or lack there of.) Last week I joined Thursdays Children, a meme about writerly inspiration. This week I'm adding Stacking the Shelves, though I probably won't participate weekly because, well, you'll see below.



Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews where we highlight the books we receive each week. To find out more or join the blog hop, click here. 


So I mentioned above that I probably won't participate in this every week. Simply, I'm a starving artist who has yet to make any real money from her craft, so I can't afford to shop the way *I* shop for books. Here's this week's haul (and also my attention whore of a cat, Maggie):



Hi, my name is Dannie, and I'm a book binger. I cannot go to a bookstore and buy a book.


Bought

Switch by Carol Snow--Picked this up at  a scholastic sale (because being an educator *does* occassionally have perks)

The Thirteenth Child by Patricia C. Wrede--another scholastic purchase. 

Gamer Girl by Mari Mancusi--I've actually already read this one but I came across it and had to pick it up. Awesome upper MG read. 

Yaqui Delgado Wants to Kick Your Ass by Meg Medina--in an effort to read more multicultural YA I had to pick this up when I saw the title. Could have been written by one of my students at work. 

When You Were Mine by Rebecca Serle--Love, love LOVE the concept of this book. Cannot wait to read it!

Love is All You Need by Deb Caletti--I swear, her entire list is on my TBR and has been forever. Finally getting around to picking some of hers up! Stay is also on my list.  

Trafficked by Kim Purcell--has been on my list since SCBWI Carolinas. 

Airheads by Meg Cabot--Love her! Another from the scholastic book fair. 

Gifts

Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro--this was on my wishlist, a gift from my awesome hubby!

Beautiful Chaos by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl--another gift from hubs. Will have to get book 2 first though!


So, what have you added to YOUR stack this week?
