Stacking the Shelves is a weekly haul meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews & Reading Reality. It is about sharing enthusiasm for the new books added to our shelves – be it physical, ebooks, galleys or borrowed from the library.
I have to now take care to not request any galleys releasing before May (I have filled all possible slots until then). Fingers crossed I restrain myself.
