Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.

Kara here! It’s been a few weeks since I have done a haul, and thus, it is time. I’ve had a rough couple of weeks. I had a pain/steroid shot in my back yesterday, so hopefully that helps get some of the pain out of my back. I DID sleep better last night but I have been in a fair amount of pain today, and I am hoping that doesn’t last. Also, I was fighting a cold all last week so if I have seemed antisocial, that is why!

Next week, Karina will be here for Book Bash so there will be much fun in Orlando with her and some other authors! She gets here late Wednesday and we are going to Universal (Harry Potter) and who knows what else? I am looking forward to it and seeing Chelsea and Laura also. Yay for book friends and clients who are also friends! I hang with some bad-ass people, I know. ๐Ÿ˜›

Also, if you are an author reading this and looking for an editor, I am now booking months up until the end of 2014!

On to the books?

  1. Kara, I am really curious about Adam! I can’t say I have seen it around much! And those are some awesome early birthday gifts! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Bekka, I’m curious about your reaction to USES FOR BOYS because I REALLY struggled with that one. I have heard nothing but great things about FIND ME though!

  2. Ruin and Rising! Can’t wait to find the time to read that. ๐Ÿ˜€
    I’m super excited for both Winterkill and The Cure for Dreaming. Descent sounds pretty fantastic too though! Hope you’re feeling better, Kara!

    The Bodies We Wear sounds pretty fantastic, I may have to pick that one up.

    Happy Reading!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Oh man, those Bardugo books look so pretty! I have them all on audible and I love them, but I kind of want to get hardcopies. For my classroom. Yeah, for my students, not because they are so gorgeous that I just need to HAVE them. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I hope you feel better soon, Kara ๐Ÿ™‚ Winterkill sounds great and after loving In the shadow of blackbirds, I’m interested to read Cat Winters’ new book. I love the cover from The perilous see, I need to pick up The burning sky.

    Defiance is pretty good and Ruin and rising.. I have a hang-over, let me tell you that.

    Happy reading!

  5. Awesome book haul ladies!! I still need to get into the Grisha series (I know right, it’s embarrassing!) BUT I do own book one and plan on diving in asap! I got The Perilous Sea too, isn’t that cover stunning?! The Cure for Dreaming & Defiance are both on my wishlist/tbr – I’ll be looking out for your reviews on all of these ^^ Kara I’m sorry to hear you’ve been in so much pain, I hope you get some much needed relief soon. Happy reading ^^

    • Yes! I get why they changed the cover of the first one now when I saw the sequel. And thanks. I am trying to get better. Back pain is a pain in the ass.
