Book Haul: The longest book haul in existence (Stacking The Shelves)

Stacking The Shelves is weekly meme where we share all the books we have added to our shelves whether it's physically or digitally. For more info check out the awesome host Tynga's Reviews 

So I haven't done a book haul since September 9th! Needless to say I have alot of books to haul, 22 to be exact and some bookish goodies. Lets get started.

*Swan Song by Charlotte Wilson- Released this past September- Received ebook VIA author for review, review coming later this month. "A coming-of-age novel about family and first love, in the city of hopes and dreams." Taken from Goodreads

*The Truth and Lies of by Ella Black by Emily Barr- Releases January 11th 2018 VIA Penguin. Received e-arc VIA Netgalley - YA Contemporary mystery 

*The Hating Game by Sally Throne - Already released this past summer- Received paperback VIA Piatkus for review- Adult contemporary romance - I did start this book and was enjoying it but got distracted by another book. I do want to go back to it and finish it this fall as I was enjoying it.

*Hot & Sinful Nights: A Hot Boxed Romance anthology- I was gifted this box set VIA amazon ebook as a special surprise in an email subscription to one of the authors in the box set. There is 21 lustful stories and I have already read one and really enjoyed it. With anthologies I like to dip in and out of them. I am excited to have this box set to read throughout the winter months.
