Stacking the Shelves {10}

Welcome to another week of Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga!

As Tynga explains, all you have to do is:
  • Create your own Stacking The Shelves post. You can use my official graphic or your own, but please link back to Tynga’s Reviews so more people can join the fun!
  • You can set your post any way you want, simple book list, covers, pictures, vlog, sky is the limit!
  • I am posting Stacking The Shelves on Saturdays, but feel free to post yours any day that fits you.
  • Visit Tynga’s Reviews on Saturday and add your link so others can visit you!
  • Visit other participants link to find out what they added to their shelves!
So today my post is going up a little bit later than usual because I was attending a book launch earlier today for Joanne Levy's debut, Smart Medium at Large from Bloomsbury! It was a lot of fun but I knew I'd be coming back with some books so I put off doing this post until afterwards.
This week I received:

  •  Review copy of The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell by Chris Colfer (TBR ~ July 17, 2012) received from HBG Canada - really curious about this one since it looks so neat and is written by Glee's Chris Colfer! :)
  • ARC So Close to You by Rachel Carter received from HarperCollins US (won in giveaway)
  • Last Rite (Personal Demons #3) by Lisa Desrochers (from Wendy @ A Cupcake and a Latte ~ Wendy had a copy she was ready to pass along to someone, and this is the only one I was missing!)
  • ARC Entice (Embrace #2) by Jessica Shirvington (TBR ~ September 4, 2012) Wendy also had an extra copy of Entice, so she kindly passed it along to me as I loved Embrace :)
This picture shows what I received from the Small Medium at Large gift bag that Joanne put together for the attending bloggers! This was absolutely amazing, and I can't even tell you how cool it was that she did this for us :) There were 2 books included (they were all Penguin books ~ I ended up trading my copy of Cold Fury for Frostbite since I already have Cold Fury) But isn't this just amazing?! SO MUCH swag! They're all from 2012 debuts :) And a delicious, red velvet cupcake! <3
  • SIGNED Small Medium at Large by Joanne Levy (purchased at the book launch)
  • ARC Rift by Andrea Cremer (TBR ~ August 7, 2012) this is actually my second copy of the book, so I'll be passing this one along at some point to another reader
  • Frostbite: A Graphic Novel (Vampire Academy #2) by Richelle Mead (I haven't read VA yet, but I keep meaning to and I like the graphics in the graphic novels so I traded my copy of Cold Fury for this one!)
So much swag I can't even handle it! I'm kind of a swag hoarder, so even if I do give away a whole bunch of this, I'll STILL end up with some for me hehe. It was such a great week though, and Joanne did a great reading from her book. And as always, it was so nice to see the other Blogettes! :)
