Stacking the Shelves (57)

Stacking the Shelves
Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted byΒ Tynga’s ReviewsΒ where you showcase all of the books you received for the week, whether it be physical or electronic books!

Β Hi Everyone πŸ™‚ Happy September!!! I am so excited for the Fall season to begin, I’ve already started to pick out some must have Fall reads and I can’t wait to dive into them. My week wasn’t very eventful at all… it was basically a week of work, gym, home, repeat. Boring I know!

I did pick up a few books over the past couple of weeks, nothing huge BUT I noticed the strangest thing at the Coles that I normally I go to. They are now putting out Young Adult titles a week Β in advance! I got The Coldest Girl in Coldtown a week before it came out, and the other day I was in there and they had Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell already on shelves. This bookstore seriously has no rhyme or reason to it’s madness, I go in there on Thursday sometimes and they still don’t have the new releases on the shelves, they are stacked all around the sides of the store in half-opened boxes and then they put up unreleased books on the shelves? And this is why that franchise annoys me sometimes πŸ˜›

I am so freaking excited to read Into the Still Blue! It is definitely one of my most anticipated titles for 2014 so I can’t see myself delaying reading that any further than October πŸ˜› I also started reading A Great and Terrible Beauty this week and I am really, really enjoying it. I guess this will be the year I get into historical fiction πŸ˜›

      Oh, I’m glad to hear Coldest was good! I loved the cover and the synopsis sounded so unique I had to pick it up! I was super surprised to see Into the Still Blue out this early on Edelweiss, but I am ECTASTIC! I thought it was going to be a tremendously long wait until January because I’m dying to finish! Thanks for stopping by Pam!!!

    OMG!!!! Into the Still Blue!!!!! I requested it, but it’s still pending. How quickly did you hear back? I’m new to Edelweiss, and I’ve had some requests pending for over a month?

      Oh Melissa πŸ™ I’m actually autoapprove for Harper so that’s why I got it so early. Don’t worry about waiting for a month, that happens to me all the time for all the other publishers! I actually just waited for like 2 1/2 months to hear about Red and then it came back declined πŸ˜› Harper and sometimes S&S are the only publishers I have ever had luck with on Edelweiss. I’m sure you will get approved for it though, Harpers is awesome!!!!

      YAY πŸ™‚ And I loved The Infernal Devices series which is the same time period AND paranormal historical fiction. I’m really liking it so far although I’m not too far in!

      I starting watching the show not even knowing it was a book so once I found THAT out I needed to pick it up πŸ˜› The tv show is really good, I definitely suggest watching it! Thanks for stopping in Jillyn!

      OH you are so much better off waiting for the whole set to be released anyway! I wish I had of done that, because it’s sure been a painful wait for book 3!! Thanks for stopping in Pabkins πŸ™‚

    I just bought The Coldest Girl in Coldtown since it was on sale for Kindle. I’m kinda nervous because it’s not really my kind of read but I’m really intrigued by it. And YAYYYYYY for Into the Still Blue!
