Stacking the Shelves #178


Stacking the Shelves button

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews that lets us share what we've added to our shelves.


I've had two weeks of no physical bookmail and it's been a strange but good feeling lol. I really have more than enough to read so I've been trying to buy less and be pickier. It's worked pretty well so far but we're only on the first month of the year so we'll see how that goes XD

A few days ago I picked up a copy of one of my most anticipated 2018 book: Dark of the West! Thank you so much Raincoast Books <3

Now here's a funny story with Almost Midnight. I ordered the book from TBD almost 3 months ago and it literally just arrived. I had given up hope. In all fairness when I went searching on the TBD website they had a little Delivery to Canada note under their Help section. Apparently they're experiencing problems outside of their control with shipping to Canada (and Brazil) so delivery time will be longer than usual (which is to say unpredictable). I'm still amused that it took 3 months vs. the less than 3 weeks I used to get. As long as it arrived safely I guess...

  2. Woah, that's quite a long time for a book to arrive, international or not! I'm glad it arrived though. I hope you enjoy both of your new books!

    P.S. I almost didn't see Pickles in the photo! Was about to get huffy with you LOL. 😂🐈

    Have a lovely weekend, Eileen! =)

    1. Me too! The book is so tiny which wasn't at all what I excited but it's sparkly and pretty so I guess that's good? XD

  4. STILL?? TBD is still having issues getting stuff to Canada?? Yikes, people. Hope they work it out soon. Oooh, Dark of the West! Excited for that one, the story sounds amazing (though I am really hoping for a cover redesign before publication!:/)

    1. Ya I'm not sure what the issue is but I heard it's with the Borders :S Haha I'm not surprised you're not a fan of the cover, I'm not big on it either XP
