Stacking the Shelves #3 (For the month of January)

Happy Sunday and welcome to the second installment of Stacking the Shelves! For those of you who don't know, this is usually a weekly post (hosted by Tynga's Reviews), but I decided to do my posts by month. (This is only my second month of blogging!) Check out what I got for the month of January, and make sure to leave a comment for me, letting me know what you got too!

Physical ARCs- from publishers/authors for review

This month, there was A LOT of bloggy stuff going on with New Year, New Books! Plus, I was super stressed with work and studying for midterms, so there was definitely less ARCs for January. But that's okay! I finished and review so many library books, and I'm super happy about that! Here is what I did get:

1) Learning to Swim By: Annie Cosby

2) Grasshopper Jungle By: Andrew Smith

3) Rebel Belle (!!!!)

4) The Ballad of a Small Player By: Lawrence Osborne

Okay, technically I won this one, but I am still keeping my fingers crossed for a review copy I did put in a request for!
