stacking the shelves 8/5

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews where we show off all the awesome goodies we received throughout the week!

This past week was faaaaantastic for books. The bookstore where I worked turned 40 and as a birthday present, all of the employees basically got TONS of free books. At the moment I have around $200 worth of free novels and still have some left to get!

Apart from that, I snatched up a copy of The Waiting Sky by Lara Zielin!

One summer chasing tornadoes could finally change Jane’s life for the better.

Seventeen-year-old Jane McAllister can’t quite admit her mother’s alcoholism is spiraling dangerously out of control until she drives drunk, nearly killing them and Jane’s best friend.

Jane has only one place to turn: her older brother Ethan, who left the problems at home years ago for college. A summer with him and his tornado-chasing buddies may just provide the time and space Jane needs to figure out her life and whether it still includes her mother. But she struggles with her anger at Ethan for leaving home and feels guilty–is she also abandoning her mom just when she needs Jane most? The carefree trip turned journey of self-discovery quickly becomes more than Jane bargained for, especially when the devilishly handsome Max steps into the picture.

Um, yes?

:) What awesome things did you get this week?

What’s coming up next week!
I’m currently reading three books, so be sure to stop back next week for the reviews!
