Stacking the Shelves ~ May 31st


Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews

Hi guys! It's been ages since I did a Stacking the Shelves post. I kept meaning to do one every week, then decided I'd take a break, and now I'm back! This post would be endless if I shared all the books I've acquired since my last STS, so here are the books I got this week:

GIFT:
Fleur de Lies by Maddy Hunter {GoodReads}

*Maddy Hunter has been one of my favourite authors for years. A couple years ago I contacted her to tell her how much I love her books, and we became friends. She's so lovely and sweet, and has been so supportive of my writing career. For the last couple years, she's sent me a signed copy of each of her new books, and Fleur de Lies is her newest release. I love this cozy mystery series - it's hilarious, romantic, and it satisfies my ever-growing wanderlust by letting me live vicariously through the characters' travels. If you enjoy cozy mysteries, the Passport to Peril series is a must-read.
 
BOUGHT:
Not Until Tonight by Jessica Sankiewicz {GoodReads}
Just One Night by Gayle Forman {GoodReads}
Must Love Otters by Eliza Gordon {GoodReads}

FOR REVIEW:
Trial by Fire by Josephine Angelini {GoodReads}
Winterspell by Claire LeGrand {GoodReads}
Unravel by Imogen Howson {GoodReads}
Alias Hook by Lisa Jensen {GoodReads}
Traitor’s Blade by Sebastien de Castell {GoodReads}
Murder by Sarah Pinborough {GoodReads}


*A huge thank-you to Maddy Hunter, Simon & Schuster Canada, Thomas Dunne Books, MacMillan, and Jo Fletcher Books  


~*~I need your help!~*~

From June 27th-30th I'm running a relaunch book blitz for my debut novel, Blue Sky Days, which originally came out in January 2012. I've made some changes and additions, and I'll be relaunching the book on the 27th. Because part of the book was inspired by my dad's battle with leukemia, I picked the 27th because it will be the 20th anniversary of his death. For the 4 days of the blitz, half the proceeds from all sales of Blue Sky Days will be donated to the Canadian Cancer Society. I'm still looking for people to sign up for the blitz, as well as sponsors for a blitz-wide giveaway. I've already collected $60 (!!) in donations, so the giveaway is going to be epic. I'd be so grateful to anyone willing to sign up for the blitz and/or donate money for the prizes. The more people who know about the relaunch, the better - I'd love to be able to honour my dad by donating a ton of money to the Canadian Cancer Society. You can read all the details, plus find the sign-up form HERE
