Stacking the Shelves (15)

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.

So, here's what I got this week!

For Review:

The Bronte Sisters: The Brief Lives of Charlotte, Emily and Anne by Catherine Reef (Thomas Allen and Sons)
Will Sparrow's Road by Karen Cushman (Thomas Allen and Sons)
Perry's Killer Playlist (Perry and Gobi #1) by Job Schreiber (Thomas Allen and Sons)
Blind Spot by Laura Ellen (Thomas Allen and Sons, and Aylee at Recovering Potter Addict --- 2 copies)
Impossible (With Me Series #1) by Komal Lewis (Romantic Maidens Book Tours)
The Raven Boys (Raven Cycle #1) by Maggie Stiefvater (Scholastic Canada)

I'm really excited for Impossible! :D And I still can't wait to read The Raven Boys. I'm also hoping that I'll like Blind Spot...especially since now I have 2 copies. :P

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

Bought:

Finale (Hush Hush #4) by Becca Fitzpatrick
Dark Star by Bethany Frenette
Caught on Camera by Kim Law
Every Breath She Takes by Norah Wilson
Beauty and the Werewolf (Five Hundred Kingdoms #6) by Mercedes Lackey

Finale finally came in! :D Hopefully I like it since 2 of my fellow Edmonton Book Bloggers hated it. :P I'm also really excited that my pre-order of Dark Star showed up!!! :D And yay for some Kindle Deals!!! :D

So, those are the books I got this week? What did you get?

  9. I think you can definitely enjoy Blind Spot if you go into it expecting a more drama filled high school tale rather than a murder mystery. I went into it knowing that and I seemed to enjoy it quite a bit more than a lot of people. I hope you like all the new goodies!

      Thanks! I enjoyed Finale, too. :P
      Hmmm, I haven't heard anything mixed at all about The Raven Boys. Everything I've heard has been good...plus, I love Maggie Stiefvater's writing, so I'm not too worried. :P Fingers crossed for Blind Spot!!! haha

  12. I'm also anxiously waiting for Raven boys - I'm a HUGE Maggie Steifvater fan. You should Read Scorpio races at least before the movie comes out :)
