Stacking the Shelves (80)

August 2, 2014 Stacking the Shelves 12

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!

Happy Long weekend 🙂 If you are in Canada, I know most provinces are celebrating a long weekend and I personally am so excited about it. It’s been a busy summer and I’m so happy to have this extra day to relax with and also get some more stuff down around here (i.e. Finish setting up my book room lol). There hasn’t been much that’s happened over the past two weeks, but I did manage to get my reading speed back to what it used to be so I’m very so excited. I missed reading like that so I’m happy I’ve been able to get back to where I used to be… hopefully I can complete my Goodreads challenge now! I’m also slowly getting my blog organized to what it used to be, and have posts scheduled for the future… yes!

I actually got a ton of books these past two weeks and I am PUMPED for them, my tbr and book buying ban *ahem* flew out the window this week…

The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness

Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover

Endless by Kate Brian

 One of the things that Nick purchased me for my birthday was the preorder of The Book of Life on Amazon. It was way cheaper on their than in store (like 15.00 difference!!) so he also got me a few other highly anticipated titles that I was having a hard time finding in story. I am BEYOND excited for TBOL and I will be starting it tomorrow. I wanted to complete a reread of Shadow of Night first and of course then I had to wait for a full weekend day to devout to this book because I will not shut these covers until I am done

 Ebooks
Stolen Songbird  Obsidian
Stolen Songbird by Danielle L. Jensen
*Purchased on Kindle
Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout
*Free on Kindle

I’ve heard great things about Stolen Songbird and was actually wanting to purchase a physical copy because of the whole Strange Chemistry shutdown but it was on Kindle monthly deal when I checked last night so decided to go the Kindle route. Really excited to try out this vein of fantasy… trolls!! I think  I will really enjoy it. Obsidian was a FREEBIE on Amazon!?! My head still can’t wrap around this but whatever, I scooped that up immediately upon spotting it! I go back and forth about wanting to read this one because of aliens but ultimately, it’s so highly spoke about I know I’m going to end up reading it.

Red Queen  Liars, Inc.  Rowdy
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
*HarperTeen via Edelweiss
Liars, Inc. by Paula Stokes
*HarperTeen via Edelweiss
Rowdy by Jay Crownover
*William Morrow via Edelweiss

Read Queen is just… ahhh… so excited for this! This was one of my must have grabs for 2015. I’m trying to limit myself to review copies in 2015 so I’m aiming for 2 to 4 a month and this was DEFINITELY one that I was hoping for. I’m surprised I retrained myself nicely on Edelweiss but I did *pats back*. I seriously will be starting this as soon as bloody possible… gosh it sounds amazing. Liars, INC. is another one… I just NEEDED it. The Art of Lainey was by FAR one of my favorite titles of 2014 so I have high expectations for this as well. I’m going to be reading this quite possibly by the end of this month 😛 Rowdy is the fifth book in the MArked Men series and I adore it. Can’t wait to read Rowdy’s story!!!

      I was actually not even that interested until you posted about it 😛 I had seen some reviews and it did pique my interest slightly what with the witches and trolls but your review definitely put it on my TBR radar 🙂 I hope she can find a new place for her books as well, it’s very sad what happened to those authors 🙁

      I can’t wait to read it 🙂 I’m so sure I will… you and a MILLION others have nothing, NOTHING bad to say at all <3 I’m definitely going to be reading it in August!!

      I debated it for awhile as well, and then when I was about to order I thought, “Should I?” and logged onto Goodreads to see exactly what everyones reviews were. Literally like 10 of my blogger friends/most trusted reviewers had marked it 5 stars, so needless to say I kept it in the order basket haha.

      Thanks Tammy! It really intrigued me when I seen Harper’s winter catalog so when it game up for grabs I couldn’t resist!! I’m hoping to get it read rather soon to avoid any spoilers that might float around 😛

    I’m not sure if you have read Half-Blood by JLA yet, but I have some advice, haha. I got to about 35 pages in, and I was not keen on the book at all. But then I decided to make it to 50 pages and see how I liked it by then, and it got SO MUCH BETTER. So if things don’t seem sunny at the beginning, they do get better 😀 Although, the books kind of decreased in likeability for me as time went on, sadly.

    I have heard a lot of good things about Open Road Summer, so I hope you like it as much as everyone else!

    I recently purchased Stolen Songbird in paperback because it sounds really awesome and I wanted to support Strange Chemistry after the sad news of them shutting down 🙁

    I think Red Queen and Lairs, Inc both looks really awesome and I cannot wait to read them! It looks like you got a good haul, Lauren! ^.^

      I have not read Half-Blood yet but thank you SOO much for that advice, now I will know to keep on trudging through if I don’t like it at first 🙂 That’s a shame that they decreased in likeability for you, I always hate when that happens in a series.

      It is incredibly sad about Stolen Songbird and Strange Chemistry. I really hope the authors find other publishers to support their books. I will probably buy Stolen Singbird in paperback as well, because it’s just gorgeous.

      Thanks so much for stopping by Chiara 🙂
