Stacking the Shelves #7


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 one crazy week! I am so glad the weekend is finally here, even though I am sure it will fly by way too fast. Next weekend I am going to Dragon Con and I couldn’t be more excited. Dragon Con is hosting quite a few authors each year and this year their guests include Sara Raasch, the author of Snow Like Ashes. I really hope I’ll get a chance to meet her. I’ll probably end up rambling more about this topic once I come back from the con, but until then, here is my book haul for this past week:

Books:
P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han – I read ‘To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before’ earlier this year and really enjoyed it so I am curious to see where Lara Jean’s story is going next.


EBooks:
The Demon in the Wood: A Darkling Prequel Story (The Grisha Trilogy) – I think out of all the books I got this week, I am most excited about this novella. I absolutely loved the Darkling in The Grisha Trilogy, and I am beyond excited to find out the Darkling’s back story. I will read this this weekend as it is only 67 pages. Cannot wait!

The Five Stages of Andrew Brawley by Shaun David Hutchinson & Christine Larsen – To be perfectly honest, I don’t know much about this book except that lots of people in the bloggerverse love it; so, when I found it on sale earlier this week I decided to grab it. I’m not sure when I will get a chance to read it, but hopefully soon.

Remembrance by Michelle Madow – My friend Eve at FunctioningInsanity read and reviewed this book. She really enjoyed it so I decided to give it a try. Again, not sure exactly when I’ll get a chance to read it, but eventually I will.


Books received for review:
To Nowhere by C.E. Wilson – The author of this book contacted me and asked if I’d be interested in reading and reviewing her novel. The novel has a very unique dystopian concept and I am looking forward to reading it. She was kind enough to send me a copy of her book and I will read and post my review sometime in October.

Critical Hit-On (The Games of Love Book 1) by Deanna Dee – This was also sent to me by the author in exchange for a review and I’m looking forward to reading it as well. This is a new adult romance debut and it sounds absolutely adorable. My review of this book will also be posted sometime in October.


Library:
Starters by Lissa Price – This book has been around for a few years now and it seems to have gotten lots of love; so when I saw the audiobook available at my local library I thought I’d give it a go and see how I like it. I hope to get to listen to it in the next couple of weeks.

Tricks by Ellen Hopkins – This audiobook was also available at my local library. I’ve had this book on my tbr list for a while now and I am very happy to finally get to it. The book was originally released in 2009 and people still seem to be talking about it so it must be really good.


Reviews posted this week:
Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon – Last week, I was lucky enough to receive an ARC for this book from NetGalley. I read it in one day and absolutely loved it. Please check out my spoiler free review here. Also, make sure to grab a copy of this book, you won’t regret it. It was a fantastic read!

  1. OMG first I have to say I am so bummed I never looked into Dragoncon until today because I'm off this weekend and totally would have gone if I'd had time to make arrangments and save some dollars. Next year!

    Yay for new books! Always fun. I read Starters as an ARC back before it came out and I really enjoyed it for sure. I hope you like it and all your new purchases as well.
