Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga at Tynga’s Reviews. Stacking the Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, physical or virtual. This includes books you buy from your local bookstore or online, ebooks, ARCs, and books you borrow from your friends or library.
If you want to find out more about Stacking the Shelves, please visit the official launch page!
This is my first Stacking the Shelves post. Moving forward, my plan is to write a Staking the Shelves post monthly or semi-monthly, depending on what I am getting and how much reading time I manage as I plan to also include a recap of reviews and such in my post.
The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
There was so much excitement surrounding this book in the book community that I couldn’t help myself. Also, I recently found a book club at a local bookstore that I wanted to attend; The Wrath and the Dawn was the June pick at book club so I made sure to read this prior to attending book club. This was my first time attending a book club and I loved it. Also the author, Renee Ahdieh, attended our meeting and it was the best experience ever. I wrote a full review for The Wrath and the Dawn here.
An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
I am so excited to start reading this book! This novel was picked as the August read for the new book club I am attending, so I will definitely be reading it sometime at the beginning of August. There is so much hype surrounding this book. The bookseller at the store was very excited when I picked it up, saying she thought it was the best book of 2015 for her. I cannot wait to start reading it!
Mosquitoland by David Arnold
I’ve heard a lot of good things about this book and I was very excited when it got picked as the July read at book club. Everyone seems to say that it is a very heartwarming story with an unforgettable protagonist so I am quite ready to get to it. I will probably start reading this sometime over the 4th of July weekend.
Something Strange and Deadly & A Darkness Strange and Lovely by Susan Dennard
I was very fortunate to attend a book signing a few weeks ago for Susan Dennard and Sarah J Maas. The bookstore where the event was hosted only had paperbacks of these 2 books and hardcover for Strange Ever After. I don’t like mismatched series, so I ended up buying only Strange Ever After for the signing. This month, I was very happy to find the first two books in the series available in hardcover at Bookoutlet.com (I love them—so many great book at amazing prices), so I made sure to get them before they went out of stock. Now that my series is complete, I hope to read it sometime in the fall.
The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows
I was able to get this as a kindle deal and I couldn’t be happier. So many of the blogs I follow rave about this novel so I couldn’t pass up on the opportunity of snatching it up when the ebook went on sale. I am looking forward to reading it, however, I did hear that it has a major cliffhanger, so I think I will wait until the sequel is released before diving in.
Vicious by V.E. Schwab
This is my first book by Victoria Schwab *hangs head in shame*. I’ve heard so many great things about all of her works that when this was listed as a kindle deal, I had to get it. Now, I cannot wait to read it. Hopefully very soon!
Time’s Mirror by Rysa Walker
This is the second novella in The Chronos Files series; the order of the series is Timebound (book 1); Time’s Echo (1st novella), Time’s Edge (book 2). I’ve only read the first book and first novella, but I’ve already purchased the second book and Time’s Mirror, which was released on June 30. Even though I haven’t read all the books available in the series, I can still say with absolute certainty that it is the best time travel series I’ve read so far.
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
I was able to borrow this as an audiobook from my local library. I listened to it during my commute staring at the beginning of June. I am currently working on a review for this novel this and will post sometime in July.
The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
This is also an audiobook borrowed from my local library. I started listening to it during my daily commute right after finishing We Were Liars. I am about half way done and I absolutely love it. I cannot wait to finish it and write my review.
I was lucky enough to receive an ARC for this book from NetGalley. I already started reading it and I really like it so far. If you read Every Day, this is its twin book; it’s the same story from Rhiannon’s point of view. If you didn’t read Every Day, you can still read this as it stands on its own. I will post a review for it as soon as I finish reading it.
