stacking the shelves

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.

 
Just a little haul this week! I only got two books in the mail, one for review and one gift. I also picked up a few Kindle Monthly Deals with a gift card I got for my birthday. I’m excited about these books since they were on my wishlist, but you know how it goes–I have about 200 books on my Kindle and about 200 on my living room shelves that I have not read yet, not counting review books. It will be a while before I get to them. One of these days we are going to have to do a bookshelf tour. Once they are a bit neater.
 
 
The Desperate Adventures of Zeno and Alya by Jane Kelley (for review from MacKids–Thank you!)

  1. Nice haul of books, I think most of those are on my ‘I want’ list! I especially can’t wait to read Doll Bones!

    Enjoy your new books and happy reading 🙂

  2. Amy

    You got some awesome books!! I have the audiobook of Doll Bones and can’t wait to get to it. I never did finish Another Little Piece. I think I wasn’t in the mood for it at the time. I got about 70% and then just stopped. Not sure why. I was liking it. Hallowed Ones sounds really good. Hope you enjoy your new books.

  3. The Hallowed Ones is really good! It’s just that little bit different and original. I hope you enjoy it. 🙂 I’m also looking forward to giving Another Little Piece a try myself one day. Love the sound of that book.

    Happy reading!

  4. I’m planning to do a bookshelf tour sometime too, though I may have to put it off til October, because it’s going to be review city to come close to keeping up with all the ARCs.

  5. Another Little Piece was SO GOOD KARA you have to read it soon! (If you haven’t already – I can’t remember.)

    I hope you do a bookshelf tour. I love seeing those, and seeing how other people organize their books gives me a total nerd-rush. Can’t wait for it.

    • I haven’t. And I will try. I wish I could read every TBR book on my shelf right nowwww! And I will do a bookshelf tour at some point, but I am not really all that organized so prepare yourself. LOL.

  6. I’ve heard mixed reviews about Another Little Piece so I’ll wait to see what you think of it.

    That cover of Bunheads freaked me out for a moment before I looked closely lol. But now I’m REALLY intrigued because it looks good as I love dancing books and ballet = love. I’m definitely checking this out.

    I should read more of Holly Black’s stuff, I only read the Spiderwick Chronicles she co-authored but I loved that!

    Enjoy (:

  7. AWESOME books! Bunheads was so great — one of my favourites — as was The Hallowed Ones. I hope you love both of them! 🙂 I still have to read Another Little Piece, but I can’t wait … I love scary books. 🙂

    Have a good week!

  8. It’s sad how many books I have lying around. I really hope I’ll be able to read them all some day. But it doesn’t stop me from adding to it! lol I’ve heard amazing things about The Hallowed Ones so I’m also looking forward to that. I hope you enjoy it. 🙂

  9. Hey I got Another Little Piece this week too! Very excited to get around to it, I hope it’s as awesome as everyone says. And Doll Bones! I planned on actually downloading the audiobook of that from my library.. hope it’s good. 🙂 Happy Reading!

  10. I didn’t really have a great time reading Another Little Piece but you might have a better one with it. I need to read The Hallowed Ones asap. Great buzz about that book.

    Have a great week, Kara!
