Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

Happy Saturday everyone! Here in my corner of NC, it’s the last weekend before school starts! (Some private and charter schools began this past week, too.) I feel like most of “my” teens at the library are ready to be back in school, seeing their friends… even if they’re not in the most studious frame of mind yet!
Myself: I started grad school this week! I’m pursuing a Masters of Library and Information Science, which will make me a legit Librarian. (Right now I’m officially a Teen Library Services Specialist. A mouthful.) I’m also getting ready for all kinds of fun fall programs at the library, and trying to decide with the hubby whether or not to take a fall getaway to the mountains. Who’s ready for pumpkin spice everything? 😉
eARC for Review
Pound for Pound: A Story of One Woman’s Recovery and the Shelter Dogs Who Loved Her Back to Life by Shannon Kopp–now that I’m a dog owner myself, I love love love books about dogs helping people! (My dog, btw, only ate half of one library book since my last Stacking the Shelves post. An improvement.)
Overcoming Life’s Challenges: Lessons From the Life of Joseph by Bill Crowder
Captive by Sarah Fine (my first ebook purchase! I’ve only downloaded freebies before this.)
George Washington’s Journal for 1754 by George Washington (love love love G.W. books!)
Respectable Sins: Confronting the Sins We Tolerate by Jerry Bridges (already read this & it was SO. GOOD.)
March by Geraldine Brooks (I had tried to download the audiobook, and started listening, and it failed about 1/3 of the way in. So I had to request the hard copy from my library.)
Good and Cheap: Eat Well on $4/Day by Leanne Brown (who doesn’t want to eat on $4/day?)
The Voice on the Radio by Caroline B. Cooney (I read the first two books in this series as a teen and loved them, so for nostalgia’s sake I downloaded the audiobook of the third one: such a good life decision! I’m loving it. The whole story came right back to me!)
Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee (so much buzz! Will it live up?)
Penguins With People Problems by Mary Laura Philpott (adorable! And humorous! I already read & recommended to my sister, as we’re both already fans of a similar book, Going for the Bronze.)
Dodger by Terry Pratchett (this one is taking me longer than I’d like to read, considering it’s YA. But it’s Terry Pratchett, so every page is enjoyable, and I’ve literally laughed out loud a few times.)
Ana of California by Andi Teran (I love love love love Anne of Green Gables, and this is a modern retelling. CANNOT wait to try it!)
