Stacking the Shelves - December 13th, 2014

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.  It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected.  This was a pretty good week, as I got one of my Secret Santa gifts, and also a surprise ARC in the mail!

I ended up signing up for two Secret Santas through two different blogs.  So far I've sent both, but only received one.  Which is okay since I just got one of mine sent today!  But my first one I received was through The Broke and The Bookish Secret Santa, and it was actually someone I knew, I'd traded with her on YA Book Exchange in the past.  And can I say that she totally spoiled me?  Before I get into all the books she got me, let me share all the extra stuff in the box.

There were two magazines, a Chinese DVD of the first four seasons of The Big Bang Theory, lots of really good smelling soaps and lotions and hand sanitizers, some candy (which I've eaten some already), a candle, and some cute undies!  So a big thank you goes out to Mia of M and Em Read.  Now for the books she sent me!

Three awesome books I've been wanting! Thakns again Mia!!  You 're an awesome Secret Santa.  

Surprise ARC:

It's a big thick one!  I've read one other book by this author, and it was a pretty good one.  I know that I will probably want to order this for my school library after I read it as well.  Thanks to Scholastic Publishing for this one.

E-galleys from Edelweiss:

Three really awesome ones from Edelweiss this week.

E-galley from Netgalley:

 As you can see, I got a couple Holocaust books this week.  And then The Last American Vampire I'm really excited about.  I got to meet the author this summer, and I'd hoped to get an ARC of it, but all I got was an autograph in the first book.  So I"m very excited for this e-galley.

Free e-book:

The first one was free, sounded interesting, so I downloaded it.  The 2nd one I've seen around, and it sounds okay, but when it was free I went for it. 

So a pretty good week!  I've still got another Secret Santa gift that should be coming, and I'll be asking for some books for Christmas as well.
