Stacking the Shelves is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Tynga at Tynga's Reviews. The meme is normally posted on Saturdays, but it can be posted by other bloggers on other days of the week. I already have a Saturday meme, so I post my Stacking the Shelves posts whenever I get the chance (or whenever I buy books). My Stacking the Shelves posts are also sporadic because I try not to buy books until I've finished quite a few.
The meme is all about sharing the books you've added to your shelves throughout the week with your readers. The books you're adding to your shelves can be either physical books or digital books for your e-reader.
After my last book haul, I kind of promised myself not to buy any more books until I read at least half of what I own but haven't read. I kind of broke that promise.

In case you didn't know, I am a certified English teacher. I don't have a full-time teaching job yet, but I'm hoping to find one soon because I absolutely love teaching. Because of my background in education, I love reading books like these and seeing some of the hilarious things that students come up with when they have no idea what the answer is.
I already read a copy of F in Exams, but it was my sister's and I wanted a copy of my own for when I finally get my own classroom. I was lucky enough to find these three at TJ Maxx on clearance. I only need to get a few more to complete my collection, but I'm really looking for the English/ELA one.
So what did you recently add to your shelves this week? As always, feel free to tell me in the comments. Also, leave the links to your Stacking the Shelves posts so I can check them out!
