Stacking the Shelves (60)

October 26, 2013 Stacking the Shelves 15

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

ย Happy Saturday everyone ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope everyone had an awesome week! My week flew by, work is very busy the last few weeks and will continue to be for the next few as I’m on a new project so everyday before I have time to think, the day is over! I haven’t been doing a lot of reading because I’ve been so tired when I get home, but I have been watching lots of Castle ๐Ÿ˜› I’m on Season 4 now (almost season 5!!) and I am just so addicted! TV has been consuming a lot of my time lately so I hope to put it aside and get quite a bit of reading done this weekend. I especially want to finish Allegiant. I’m about halfway through now so I’m eager to finish. I’ve been staying away from reviews but I did see a bit of negative backlash about the book so I’m interested to go back and read about it once I’ve finished. What did you guys think of Allegiant?

Despite being so busy… of course I managed to pick up a few books ๐Ÿ˜›

Allegiant by Veronica Roth

Heat Wave by Richard Castle
*Borrowed from a coworker

ย I already read Losing Hope but I definitely needed to pick up a physical copy ๐Ÿ™‚ As I mentioned a few times, I’m really into yoga so I picked up this book while I was at the bookstore. It’s not working out as great as my video sessions because it’s hard to read a book and try but it’s really informative! Obviously I picked up Allegiant AND a coworker (who also loves Castle) told me that his wife had the first book published by “Richard Castle” that relates to the show so he brought it in for me to borrow! Very exciting and I’ll probably read it this weekend as it’s very slim.

Finding Cinderella by Colleen Hoover
*Free on Amazon
Masquerade by Cambria Hebert
*Free on Amazon

ย I needed 3:59 obviously for the read along, and was starting to panic because it wasn’t in the bookstores that are close to me. I thought I would have to order it in but then all of a sudden it became available for an e-book library book ๐Ÿ™‚ I couldn’t resist grabbing Finding Cinderella (duh!) and Masquerade as they were both free on Amazon.

I haven’t read the first two books in the Marked Men series (but I have them for review!!) but I couldn’t resist this gorgeous cover ๐Ÿ˜› AND the next two books I am super excited about! Harlequin Teen contacted me to participate in a super fun tour at the end of November for the next book in their digital first line, so I am so excited! I loved their first book (Stir Me Up) and this one sounds just as much! J.L. Bryan sent my his brand new (super scary sounding) book for review, and I can’t wait to read it! It’s going to be a perfect Halloween read and I’m diving into it this weekend!

I am so excited about all my books from the past two weeks! What did you get? Link up please ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thanks Karla! I was kind of at a stand still with Allegiant at that point also! I had a hard time getting through the middle part of the book but it really picks up towards the end. I do agree that you can never go wrong with Colleen Hoover ๐Ÿ™‚ I wish she had enough books that everytime I was in a book slump I could pick up a new one of hers and be completely content!! Thanks for stopping by!

      Oh YAY ๐Ÿ™‚ I can’t wait to participate AND see the rest of the tour, I think it’s going to be SO MUCH FUN!

    I’m reading Losing Hope right now, and I don’t think I could possibly love Holder anymore than I do right now. ๐Ÿ˜€ I bought Allegiant this week, but haven’t started it yet. I’m one of those that it’s so hard to say bye to a series. This is one of those times. ๐Ÿ˜›

      Ohemgee, RIGHT?!?! I loved Holder more in Losing Hope… I’m sad to see him go ๐Ÿ™ I find it hard to say bye to series also Katrina, so I can see where your coming from! I had to immediately jump into this one though because I didn’t want the blogosphere to taint my thoughts! I hope you enjoy it when you pick it up!!! And thank you for stopping in!

      I hope it lives up to your expectations too!! I found it was better for me to completely ignore all of the reviews about it this week ๐Ÿ™‚ But now I’m having fun reading them, lol. Thanks for stopping by!!
