Stacking the Shelves [19] - The one with lots of Cities!

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews as a way to share all the books we've received this week!

This week at Literary Exploration

Not only did I receive two awesome packages from HarperCollins for their Halloween promotion, I went to Educator's Night at Hicklebee's and bought some books and snagged some ARCs from their giveaway piles. As always, I had an awesome time and got to meet some really great authors and fellow educators. 

All thanks to HarperCollins for their special Halloween books!!!
