Stacking the Shelves #10

Posted September 8, 2012 by Kara in Stacking the Shelves / 22 Comments


Welcome to Stacking the Shelves. Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga at Tynga’s Reviews. This is where we showcase books we have received or bought during the week.


I haven’t done a book haul post in awhile because I haven’t been getting that much. I haven’t bought any books either, and it’s not that I am on a book buying ban, I just am trying to save for something else. It’s kind of stupid, but every year I look forward to LUSH’s Halloween/Fall line coming out and I am kind of waiting for that, and LUSH isn’t cheap. So that’s why.

But I did get a few books for review and they have accumulated a bit over the last couple of weeks and I figured since they are starting to pile up, I’d better showcase them since I don’t know exactly when I will get to reading them. I AM getting caught up, but it’s coming slowly and I start my next editing job tomorrow so I won’t be reading as fast. Expect this blog to be updated less as well.

So, with that, let’s go!

For Review:

So I didn’t realize I had included The Language of Flowers in my last post. So I accidentally photographed it here again. Whoops. I am planning to read this one soon though. So at least there’s that.

Beneath the Glitter by Elle and Blair Fowler (Thanks to St. Martin’s Griffin)

Why: There was a contest to win ARCs. I entered it because I am honestly curious about this book. TBH, the reviews aren’t THAT bad yet. They are not nearly as bad as I thought they would be.

Summer and Bird by Katherine Catmull (Thanks to LibraryThing and Dutton)

Why: I love middle-grade fantasy. I’ll read any that I can get my hands on. The blurb really sounds fascinating. And the cover also really drew me in.

E-books for Review:

Midnight City (The Conquered Earth, #1)Kiss of the ButterflyWeightedBlood Bond (Dirty Blood, #3)

Midnight City (The Conquered Earth #1) by J. Barton Mitchell (NetGalley-Thanks to St. Martin’s Griffin)

Kiss of the Butterfly by James Lyon (Thanks to the author)

Weighted by Ciara Knight (Thanks to the author)

Blood Bond (Dirty Blood #3) by Heather Hildenbrand (Thanks to the author)

And that’s it for me this week! I don’t know when I will do another haul post because I don’t get a lot of books like some of the other bloggers do, but I will visit those that comment here. Feel free to subscribe and I will return the favor! Thanks guys and happy reading!

    Summer and Bird sounds fantastic and has a beautiful cover. I hope you enjoy it! Midnight City is on my pile too and I’m looking forward to reading it soon. I’ve seen a few positive reviews for it so let’s hope it doesn’t disappoint. 🙂

    Looks like you got some fantastic books. Beneath the Glitter sounds interesting. I have Midnight City too and I am super excited to get to that one!

  3. Oh my goodness Midnight City looks so GOOD! Happy reading! I hope you’ll check out my STS this week.

    On a sidenote….Your furbaby is adorable. My furbaby is a shelter dog too. I think they are the best kind 🙂

  4. I like Lush too and you’re right, they are not cheap!!

    I haven’t heard of these books, apart from the Language of Flowers which I have heard good things about – enjoy!

    Don’t you just LOVE e-ARCs? I’m so glad publishers are doing this now. I’ve gotten so many books this way that I think I probably wouldn’t have otherwise. And I totally got MIDNIGHT CITY this week too but forgot to add it. Oops!

  6. I haven’t heard of any of these except for Blood Blond. I am super excited for that one, though I’m a terrible street team member and haven’t read Cold Blood yet. *kicks self* Great haul, I hope you enjoy it!
