Stacking the Shelves #4

January 20, 2013 Stacking the Shelves 36


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.



This week, I have books that I found on clearance, visited an old bookstore that I love, and found a stash of books that I had lost in the closet (I have NO idea how they got in the closet).  I bought four new books for the Kindle, and I have one new ARC courtesy of Netgalley.

Books

Top to Bottom –

The Thirteenth Princess by Diane Zahler – I have wanted this one for a while, and I found it on clearance. Lucky me!

Angel Burn by L.A. Weatherly– This is the one I lost. I’m a bit skeptical, but I would be lying if I said I wasn’t interested in the storyline.

Learn Me Good by John Pearson– A gift.  I think it sounds very cute! 

The Gathering Storm by Robin Bridges – Found at the bookstore that I love.  I hope that I enjoy it at some degree.  Call me curious, but I think I will give it a shot, despite the feedback.

Pure – Also located at my favorite bookstore.  I have Fuse, so I thought it would only be fair to read the first book.

Jinx by Sage Blackwood – I have wanted this for a long, long time.


Nimbus by B.J. Keeton and Austin King– I found the author very interesting, and his book sounds great to boot.

Stray by Andrea Höst – I bought it after reading And All the Stars (Which I will post a review for in the future).

The Truth AboutLilly Barnes by Kimberly Russell – 99 cent find.

    I want Jinx too. Really bad! I wonder if they have a Kindle lending option for that one, hmmmm?

    I hope you enjoy Pure, I am starting Fuse right about…NOW.

    I think the cover for The Gathering Storm is so gorgeous — I think I’d buy that book for the cover alone! I received an unsolicited copy of Pure a LONG while back — I should read it one of these days. It sounds super good!

    I was not a huge fan of Angel Burn, it just seemed to go on forever and ever and ever. I hope you like it much more than I did.

    Pure was awesome because it’s different and literary and has some gross imagery. Still awesome.

    I also really liked The Gathering Storm, but I have a bizarre Russia fetish.

      I am interested in The Gathering Storm and the Russian connection. I really hope it is a fun read!

      A lot of people liked Pure – I have high hopes.

    Pure is awesome! I can’t wait to read Fuse. :)
    I read The Gathering Storm and wasn’t personally a big fan of it. I love Russian stories and such, too, but I don’t know what it was with that one on why I just couldn’t really connect. *shrugs* Maybe bad timing. Haha. Angel Burn has been on my TBR for quite some time, but I haven’t bought it or anything yet. Nice cover, though. It does look and sound interesting so I’m sure I’ll eventually pick that one up out of curiosity. :)

      Hey Pixie!

      I need to see if I can read Pure soon – a lot of people have been talking about it on this thread today.

      As for The Gathering Storm, I have seen my friends rating split in half over this book. So I am unsure what to expect.

  5. Heidi

    Yay! I’m so excited to see that you picked up Stray–I’ll hopefully be reading it sometime soon as well. =)

    I’ve heard some really, really good things about Pure (maybe from Kara? I can’t remember exactly who.) I’m on the waiting list at the library for it, but I’m something like number 43 out of 43. So it could be a while.

    Good luck with Dance of Shadows. After reading the reviews coming in for it, I’m glad I got denied! I do look forward to reading all your status updates and review, though :)

    • Lyn Kaye

      Dance of Shadows isn’t looking that good…..I’m a little sad.

      Kara did love Pure, and quite a few people have said that they loved it.

    *jumps up and down* a princess book! Thanks for showcasing it – it went straight on to my to-reads list! I have the audiobook of Angel Burn – I’d be interested to see what you think of it.

  8. kara-karina@Nocturnal Book Reviews

    These books are gorgeous! I don’t know about other people but I really loved The Gathering Storm, so I hope you enjoy it. I also got Stray after And All The Stars, because the writing was really lovely. Beautiful books, Lynn! Enjoy! ;)

  9. Jenni @ Alluring Reads

    PURE is so good! I can’t wait to read your review for that one, it completely blew me away! You always have such great hauls, Lynn. I have to say that I am always impressed by the vast selection of genre’s you collect!
