Stacking the Shelves #58

STSmall_thumb[2]

This is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews, where you showcase all the books you've received in the past week. 

I received only one book. Laurie Halse Anderson's The Impossible Knife of Memory, along with some swag. I haven't read anything by the author before but I've heard lots of good things about her novel, Speak. Can't wait to read this one. Thank you Penguin :)


What's in your haul?

  1. I need to start doing this - I usually go crazy every week getting more books than I can read, but I am helpless :D I hope you'll enjoy this book a lot!

  3. I haven't read Speak (saw the movie) but I have read a few of LHA's other books. I'm not sure I can take this one. I don't do well with difficult subjects, but it has a lot of good reviews on Goodreads.

    1. Ooh, I like tough subjects so maybe this will turn out to be a good read for me.

      Thanks for coming over, Jenna!

  8. I read one of her books and truly enjoyed it. She has tons though so I hope you'll be able to read at least one of hers. This one looks good! Looking forward to your thoughts on this one, Shane!

  11. Very cool getting the book with swag! Not getting many things means more time to try and catch up with the TBR list! Happy reading!

  24. I haven't heard about this author or this book, Shane. But please enjoy it. You're so lucky for getting an ARC from Penguin. They always reject all my e-book requests.

    Thanks for dropping by Thoughts and Pens.

  26. This book is new to me, so I hopped on over to Amazon to check it out. The plot looks VERY intense! Although there are no customer reviews on the page, there are quotes from rave reviews by the School Library Journal, Publisher's Weekly, Kirkus Reviews, and Booklist. WOW. So I'm adding this one to my TBR pile!!

    Thanks for sharing, and for commenting on my STS post, too!! : )
