Stacking the Shelves #9

Posted March 3, 2013 by Kara in Lyn, Stacking the Shelves / 16 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.

Guess what? TIME’S UP! For this week, I have an itty bitty haul.  Don’t despair – tiny and small can be a good thing!


I have something new, something old, something borrowed, and I suppose something blue in my shelf this week.


(Sorry for the poor quality – I’m out of light bulbs)

Top to Bottom:

Ingo by Helen Dunmore – My something blue! This book had me waffling for the past four weeks.  I’m always up to being tricked by a mermaid book.

The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness – This is my something old. My Reddit Gift friend sent this to me.  I have read this book, but she did a good job picking out something original. Lucky for me, my sister and I are going to trade books.  

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn – Something borrowed.  A co-worker read this one for a book club, and she left it in the break room to trade.  When she saw me reading over the cover she insisted that I should give it a shot, since I am “the reading girl”

(All something new!)

Midwinterblood by Marcus Sedgwick – “An archaeologist who unearths a mysterious artifact, an airman who finds himself far from home, a painter, a ghost, a vampire, and a Viking: the seven stories in this compelling novel all take place on the remote Scandinavian island of Blessed where a curiously powerful plant that resembles a dragon grows. ” <— HELL YES, PLEASE.

Soulbound by Tessa Adams – “While she hasn’t lived up to her family’s expectations, Xandra has come to terms with her latent magic and made a life for herself in Austin, Texas, running a coffee shop where she makes potions of a non-magical nature. ” <— HELL YES, PLEASE.

The Summer of Moonlight Secrets by Danette Haworth – Blame Kara.  I peeked in on her STS and bought it right away when I ran across this one.

    Great books!! I just finished Midwinterblood and I really enjoyed it. Soulbound looks good. I need Gone Girl. I have heard nothing but good things about it.

  3. You know it’s catnip to me when you feature a book I love, right? 😀 I am so excited to see what you think of MIDWINTERBLOOD! I will try to contain my tears if you hate it.

    I need to get off my butt and read Chaos Walking sometime, too. I keep starting it but for some reason have never gotten very far. Happy reading, Lyn!

    • I know! I lure you over here so that I look awesome when Wendy posts on my blog. Midwinterblood is the hot one this week, girl. I’m trying to clear off everything to get to this one.

      Do you need a copy of Chaos Walking?
