Stacking the Shelves (2)

Stacking the Shelves is Tynga's Reviews' version of In My Mailbox (from The Story Siren and inspired by Alea at Pop Culture Junkie).

Stacking the Shelves is a way to share the books that you're adding to your physical and virtual bookshelves. It's easy to participate. You just make your own post, and link it to the main post over at Tynga's Reviews. Also, in case you're curious, Tynga's post for it goes up on Saturdays, but you can post it any day that you like. I've decided to post mine on Sundays. :) You can find out more about participating by reading the Stacking the Shelves Launch post.

So, here's what I got this week!

For Review:

 The Vindico by Wesley King (from Penguin Canada)
 Bitterblue (Graceling Realm #3) by Kristin Cashore (from Penguin Canada)
Pilgrims Don't Wear Pink by Stephanie Kate Strohm (from Thomas Allen)
Mister Death's Blue-Eyed Girls by Mary Downing Hahn (from Thomas Allen)
Scorch (Croak #2) by Gina Damico (from Thomas Allen)
Enchanted by Alethea Kontis (from Thomas Allen)
Polar Wives by Keri Herbert (from D and M Publishing)

I'm really excited for these ones! I still need to read Fire, but I'm excited for Bitterblue...and hopefully I'll like it more than the people whose reviews I've already seen. :P I'm especially excited for Scorch! Can't wait to read it! :D I hadn't actually heard of Mister Death's Blue-Eyed Girls before it arrived in my mailbox, but it sounds interesting. :)

Won from Fiktshun on My Reading Pile

Stolen Away by Alyxandra Harvey
Leverage by Joshua C. Cohen

I won a couple of ARCs from Fiktshun's one blog, and I'm really excited for them, especially for Stolen Away! :D

--------------------------------------------------

RAK:

The Forest of Hands and Teeth (The Forest of Hands and Teeth #1) by Carrie Ryan (from Amber at The Musings of aLmYbNeNr)

Thank you so much, Amber! :D I can't wait to read this one, and I'm so glad that you sent it to me for RAK!

Bought: 

City of Lost Souls (The Mortal Instruments #5) by Cassandra Clare
Above by Leah Bobet
The Anti-Prom by Abby McDonald
Getting Over Garrett Delaney by Abby McDonald

I actually ended up buying two copies of CoLS because the one I got from The Book Depo didn't have the special edition letter from Stephen Herondale in it like the one from Chapters did. :P I just started it, and I really like it so far...hopefully it will help me get out of my reading slump. :) I bought the other three books for my Kobo and used some awesome coupons. :D Can't wait to read them! :D

--------------------------------------------------

Thank you to Penguin Canada, Thomas Allen and Sons, and D and M Publishing for the review books I was sent. :) Also, thank you to Rachel from Fitkshun for the books I won, and thank you to Amber! You're all awesome! :D

So, that's what I got this week. What did you get?
