Stacking the Shelves (6)

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. :) You can find out more about participating by reading the Stacking the Shelves Launch post.

Well, last Sunday was Canada Day and I didn't feel like sitting inside blogging, so I skipped my StS post. :P So, here's what I got over the past two weeks!

For Review:

Auracle by Gina Rosati (from Raincoast Books)
Promised (Birthmarked #3) by Caragh M. O'Brien (from Raincoast Books)
Shadowborn (Lila Gray #2) by Jocelyn Adams (from J. Taylor Publishing)
Pledged (Soul Wars Saga #1) by Gwynneth White (from Swallow Press)
Defiance (Defiance #1) by C. J. Redwine (from Edelweiss and the publisher)

I'm so excited for all of these!!! :D I already read, devoured, and loved Promised, and I can't wait to read the rest! :D I hadn't heard of Pledged until I was emailed about it's blog tour, but it sounds really interesting, so I'm looking forward to it. Auracle, and Defiance were both ones on my Books I Can't Wait to Read lists, so of course I squealed when I got them (Promised too! haha), and Shadowborn is a sequel I've been looking forward to...so it was definitely an awesome couple of weeks for review titles. :D

Sent by Chrystal at Snowdrop Dreams of Books:

Embers and Echoes (Wildefire #2) by Karsten Knight
The Birth of Jaiden by Jennifer Malone Wright

Chrystal hadn't read Wildefire yet, so she was awesome enough to send me her copy of its sequel, Ember and Echoes! :D She also sent along a copy of The Birth of Jaiden, which I hadn't heard of, so I'll have to check it out. :D Thank you so much, Chrystal! :D I can't wait to read Embers and Echoes especially!!! :D

Won:

For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund (won from Mary at Bookhounds)

I've been wanting to read this one for forever, so when I won a book of my choice for under $15 from Mary at Bookhounds, I picked this one!!! :D I'm seriously so excited to start it. I'm going to try and squeeze it in between a couple review titles. :D

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

Bought:

Something Like Normal by Trish Doller (Book Depository)
This Dark Endeavor (The Apprenticeship of Victor Frankenstein #1) by Kenneth Oppel (Wal-mart)
The Thirteen by Susie Moloney (Wal-mart)
Choker by Elizabeth Mills (Chapters)
The Espressologist by Kristina Springer (Chapters)

My pre-order of Something Like Normal came, and I'm really excited for it! :D The other four were all books that I spotted while browsing and just couldn't resist. I'm especially excited for This Dark Endeavor, as a lot of you mentioned Kenneth Oppel as one of your favourite Canadian authors during the Canada Day Hop. :D

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

So, those are the awesome titles I've gotten in the last two weeks! What have you gotten?
Feel free to leave a link to your StS, or other Mailbox memes in the comments, and I'll stop by for a visit. :)

  3. I can't wait to check out Auracle... it will definitely be in my next 5 books to read, I think.

    I got Something Like Normal as well, although I think I forgot to put it in my post last time and again this time. =b I couldn't wait to check it out and now I'm almost hesitating because I need to be in the right mood for it, I think.
