Stacking the Shelves (85)

October 11, 2014 Stacking the Shelves 13

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!

 YES! Happy weekend 🙂 And it’s a long weekend for us Canadians because it’s Thanksgiving! We are actually doing our Thanksgiving dinner on Sunday, so I will be spending the majority of the day cooking, eating and spending time with the boy. The rest of the weekend I plan on spending it relaxing and reading 🙂 And I’m sure there will be a lot of Hart of Dixie watching in there somewhere as well, haha. I’m currently almost done Season 2 and I am loving this show! Wade Kinsella quite possibly might be my future husband <3

I got quite a lot of books again this weekend however most of them were free Kindle ebooks, there was so many great ones available these past two weeks! I have a severe addiction to Kindle daily deals/free books … meh, lol.

Also I am incredibly happy to say that I only got one review book these past few weeks as well, so I am holding true to my promise to limit review copies for the upcoming months! I am itching to start into my TBR and I’m slowing clearing out the review pile.

Anyways, how was everyone elses week? … and now onto the books!

Black Ice  anne of green gables  All Together Dead
Purchased at Indigo Spirit:
Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick

Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery
All Together Dead by Charlaine Harris

I was so excited for the release of Black Ice, I was at the bookstore as soon as I finished work on Tuesday. I loved the Hush, Hush saga and have been waiting for so long for Becca Fitzpatrick to have a new release! This will definitely be on my upcoming sooner-rather-than-later to read list 🙂 Last week, at the used book sale, I picked up #8 in the Anne series so I grabbed Anne at the bookstore because it matches the series. This was the only other book in the series at the bookstore so I’ll be on the lookout for the others whereever I can find them. I also picked up All Together Dead because it was released in the TV tie in covers, which is the version I was collecting. I was doing good with keeping up with the series as these covers were released but now I’m two behind, gotta catch up soon!

 Ebooks
The Assassin's Blade  3:AM Kisses  Beautiful Oblivion  White Hot Kiss  Broken Symmetry Ephemeral  The Look of Love  The Probability of Violet & Luke  A Starstruck Kiss
Purchased on Kindle:
The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas
White Hot Kiss by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Free on Kindle:
3:AM Kisses by Addison Moore

Beautiful Oblivion by Addison Moore
Broken Symmetry by Dan Rix
Ephemeral by Addison Moore
The Look of Love by Bella Andre
The Probability of Violet & Luke by Jessica Sorensen
A Starstruck Kiss by Lauren Blakely

I am currently reading The Assassin’s Blade with Melissa and it is so good, I really am loving it so far. I can totally understand now why everyone loves Celaena, I can’t wait to see more of her in the series because if this one is any indication I’m definitely going to love the other books also! I didn’t intend on purchasing anymore Kindle books but as usual the Kindle deals got the best of me, and White Hot Kiss was up there. I really want to read this paranormal series (and more of Jennifer Armentrout) because I’ve heard amazing things so I couldn’t resist.

I also got a ton of free kindle books. There were three Addison Moore books that were available and they all sound good. I love New Adult romance and I have quite the healthy pile available for when I get in one of those moods and just want to binge read them. Ephemeral sounds amazing as well, such an interesting concept and I hadn’t heard of it before and I love finding hidden gems that not many people have read. Broken Symmetry I was thrilled about, I read Dan Rix’s other book and really loved it so I’m excited about this. The first book in The Sullivan’s series by Bella Andre was available so of course had to snag that. Romance is really appealing to me lately when I’m browsing books so I anticipate there is going to be a massive read soon haha. The Probability of Violet & Luke is the fourth book in the series, but I have the first one so .. duh, it just made sense to get this while it’s free haha. I’ve apparently been stockpiling Lauren Blakely’s books lately as well, and here is additional proof!

Transcendent
Transcendent by Lesley Livingston
*From HarperTeen via Edelweiss

I cannot even explain how excited I was to see this up on Edelweiss! I LOVE this series and Descendant ended on such a cliffhanger I cannot even wait to read this. This is definitely going to be in my upcoming reading list, hopefully before the end of October!

      I haven’t actually read a single thing about it ! I have decided to stay clear of reviews and ratings of books that I am highly anticipating because I have a suspicion that they somehow make an impact on my reviews haha. I hope you do love it if you get it Charnell 🙂 thanks for stopping by!!!

    Happy Thanksgiving! I’ve still got a month and a half to go, but I’m so looking forward to that three day weekend 😀

    Love all your books as well – is the Assassin’s Blade your first book in the ToG series? If it is, I really hope you enjoy it and read the rest of the books! It’s one of my favorite series, and Heir of Fire is probably my favorite book this year.

    Broken Symmetry is soooo gorgeous… I think I need to read it just based on that cover 😛

      Thanks Kayla 🙂 I always thought that the American Thanksgiving was a bit more well-placed, as it’s closer to the holiday months but ah well haha. Yes, The Assassin’s Blade is the first one 🙂 I’m enjoying it so far, I love that it really gives us an inside to how Celaena is and the events leading up to Throne of Glass. My review will be posting as soon as I finish, but seeing as how I’m already on book 4 I can definitely say I like it a lot 🙂

      Broken Symmetry is so gorgeous right, GOSH, I just love the colors <3

    I’m so excited to read Black Ice! It looks and sounds like the perfect fall read. I’ve never read the Hush Hush series and I don’t think I want to just because I feel like it’s one of those paranormal cliché books where girl meets boy who turns out to be an angel, demon, alien, whatever and then something bad happens blah blah. I got Transcendent too! I’ve actually never heard of that book or the first book, but I’m excited to read it since you loved Descendent.

    • Lauren

      Haha, yah Hush, Hush is kinda cliche but I loved it all the same lol. It was one of my first YA series that i read actually so I have a soft spot for it 😉

      OH! The first two books, Starling and Descendent are fantastic and end on cliffhangers so you are so lucky to have the third and be able to read them all in one fell swoop 🙂

    • Lauren

      Oh no 🙁 That really sucks that Black Ice is ruined! I love the cover of Broken Symmetry as well, it’s just soooo pretty! Thanks for stopping by!

    I’ve been wanting to read Black Ice! I hope you enjoy it 🙂 I loved White Hot Kiss, but a bunch of people didn’t like it 😛 I think I’m a sucker for Armentrout and New Adult though, so it just depends on the reader. Hope you enjoy all your new books 🙂 You seen to have had a great week, book-wise!
