Stacking the Shelves #6


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 has been yet another great book week for me. I managed to get quite a few amazing deals on physical books and ebooks, I got approved by NetGalley for a book I really wanted, and I finally got a copy of an audiobook I had been on hold for over 5 months. So here is my haul for this week:

Books
Fairest by Marissa Meyer – This is the only book in The Lunar Chronicles I haven’t read yet. I am really hoping I’ll be able to read it before Winter is released as I have it on pre-order and I’ll probably want to read it as soon as I get it.



Willowgrove by Kathleen Peacock – I haven’t started reading this series yet, but I hope to get to it soon. I already had the first two books in hardcover so now that my series is complete I have no excuses. I’ve heard great things about this series so I am super excited to start reading it.



EBooks

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart – I recently listened to the audiobook of this novel and really liked it. I borrow all audiobooks from my local library, so when I found it on sale I knew I had to purchase it and add it to my personal library. I also wrote a spoiler free review for this book, so if you want to get more details you can check out my review here.


Hemlock by Kathleen Peacock—As I mentioned above, I already owned the first 2 books in the series (Hemlock and Thornhill) in hardcover. However, I found this on sale for Kindle and decided to get it. When I travel I like to carry only my kindle because I am very protective of my physical books, so having a good kindle library is very important.


Ballad: A Gathering of Faerie by Maggie Stiefvater—This is another book I own a physical copy of, but since I found it really cheap for kindle I decided to add the digital copy to my library.


Across the Ages by RaShelle Workman—This was on the kindle daily deal earlier this week, and I knew nothing about the premise of this book. But when I looked at it it sounded super interesting and at $0.99 it was a steal so I decided to give it a try. Who knows, could end up a favorite. :)


NetGalley
Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon – Thank you NetGalley and Random House for approving my request. I have heard amazing things about this book and it has been on my list of most anticipated releases for 2015, so I was super excited to start reading it. I actually managed to read this in one day, yesterday, so I will post my review sometime this week. This title will be released on September 1, 2015. 


Library
Yes Please by Amy Poehler—I’ve had a hold for this audiobook for over 5 months, and I finally got it! I am super excited for my commute to get laugh out loud funny next week.

 Have you read any of these titles? Let me know in the comments below. If you wrote a review make sure to leave a link so I can check it out. Have an amazing week!

    1. I am hoping to post my review by Thursday at the latest. I just got back from vacay and I'm struggling getting back to work, chores, and all that "fun" stuff. I started writing it, but didn't finish yet :(
