I've been a bit overwhelmed by all the e-galleys I've requested lately.  I feel like I'm going to have to do much better about requesting them.  And I'm also going to give myself a break from them for awhile.  I'll still try to get some of them done, the ones that I know for sure I want to read.  But others that I may have requested but am not so sure about now, well they'll probably not make it through the time I have.  I hate to do it, but I just have got to give myself a break.  I have so many physical books I want to read right now as well, so I'm just going to chill out a bit and work on reading what I can and want to.  As a lot of my requests on e-galleys are ones I know I wanted, that will still work.

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.  It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected.  It has been a light week for physical books.  Only 3, and none were purchased!  

Physical books:

  The first book I won from a Goodreads Giveaway.  The 2nd one was a Books for Trade deal on Twitter.  The third book was an ARC that one of the guys at the bookstore where I work saved for me, knowing that I like teen books.  However as I've not read the first one, I'll probably be hoping to trade it for a book that I want more.

E-galleys for review:

  The first is from Edelweiss, the second two from Netgalley.

Free e-books:

  I think the middle one was from Amazon, and the other two from Barnes and Noble.  

E-books won:

  I won these books from the author as part of the YA Giveaway Hop.  I look forward to reading them!

So, what did you add to your shelves this week?
