Stacking the Shelves (76)

June 1, 2014 Stacking the Shelves 4

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

Why hello everyone 😛 I am so excited to be back blogging! It’s taking me awhile, and I have a ton to catch up on… reviews, reading, comments, blog posts but I’m slowly getting their. Yesterday we had to go back and finalize everything at our old apartment and do a ton of errands but that is finally off our chest and it’s only the decorating/organizing at the new place left 🙂 The move went well, and my vacation… except a bookshelf (BAHAHA… of all things) fell on my feet and I had to go to the hospital! It was a scary ordeal because I passed out (which was odd… normally I have an incredible high pain threshold) and thought my right foot was broken, BUT IT’S NOT 🙂 My toes were just ripped apart but no broken bones 🙂 I will talk more in my monthly wrap up (because really, all I have to do is talk about my month because I definitely didn’t accomplish much blog-wise!) but I hope everything is going well with everyone as well!

I don’t even want to say anything about the books… I went nuts… and this is what happens when I restrict myself friends 😛

When Rachel told me that I won the April giveaway for the RPC, I was so excited.. I knew exactly which book I would pick first: Don’t Look Back! For some reason I couldn’t find it at any of the bookstores around here. I CANNOT WAIT TO READ THIS! Wow, I have heard so many things about it. Breakable was just a given… hello… Lucas?? My love. Easy is one of my all time favorites so i NEEDED this. I won This Strange and Familiar Place in the YASH giveaway but I hadn’t read the first book so when I went to Chapters yesterday I managed to snag it on the bargain shelf 🙂 I also picked up Velveteen on the bargain shelf as well. This has been on my TBR since it came out but I hadn’t gotten a chance to read it… love the cover. Maybe Someday and Take Me On are givens as well, needed to pick those up and for some reason I kept forgetting to get Maybe Someday before now! Star Cursed, Daughter of Chaos, Defiance and Compliance I won in the YASH giveaway as well and I’m looking forward to starting those series 🙂 AND HERE IT IS! What I Thought was True!!! In the midst of the chaotic move I didn’t have a chance to grab it so I did yesterday and YES! I can’t wait to read it!!

Top Ten Clues You’re Clueless by Liz Czukas
*HarperTeen via Edelweiss

I really was going on a good role there with not picking up any more review copies and then Harper on Edelweiss happened again, haha. The Jewel is one that I am SOOO excited for. As soon as this was announced, this was on my TBR. It sounds amazing. Anatomy of a Misfit and Falling Into Place are two contemporaries that there is quite a lot of early buzz for so I couldn’t resist them. A Thousand Pieces of You… parallel worlds? Must I say more? Remember Me is the sequel to Find Me, which I really enjoyed last year and completely forgot to add this to my 2014 list! I was PUMPED to see this on Edelweiss!! Chase is being rereleased by Harper Impulse this summer under a new name, and the author contacted me for a review. It sounds likes a really good summer contemporary and I LOVE NYC books! I read the first book in the Mine series last year, so I was so excited when Janeal contacted me to review her second as well, I will be starting on that one soon hopefully. And lastly, Top Ten Clues You’re Clueless! There were such amazing reviews for Liz Czukas’ first book and I still haven’t had a chance to pick it up yet, so when I seen this on Edelweiss I knew I couldn’t pass it up!

    I just got a copy of here and now by Ann brashares.(heard positive and negative reviews about this one) Wanted a copy of a thousand pieces of you, but couldn’t find it anywhere.

    I’ve heard such great things about Defiance, though I have yet to read it. I still have to buy a copy though, but for some reason I randomly own the second one! I can’t wait for the release of The Jewel; it sounds so good! I Heard it’s great for fans of the Selection, which is one of my favorites. I hope you enjoy your books. 🙂
