Stacking the Shelves (1)

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews. It's an opportunity for everyone to share the books which we've added to our shelves. We're excited to participate in this meme for the first time!

Most of our book hauls come from our awesome local library. We always tell ourselves that we're only going to borrow a few books and then inevitably leave with teetering stacks. Here are the results from our most recent spree:

Ally's Books:

The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab
Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys
Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier
Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins
Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta

Lee's Books:

Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
Delirium by Lauren Oliver
White Cat by Holly Black
The Shakespeare Stealer by Gary Blackwood
Matched by Ally Condie
Embrace by Jessica Shirvington
A Tempation of Angels by Michelle Zink

The Wicked and the Just by J. Anderson Coats
Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers
Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta
Froi of the Exiles by Melina Marchetta

(Yeah, I went on a bit of a buying binge with Melina Marchetta's books. They're amazing! I forgot to tell Ally that I now owned a copy of Finnikin of the Rock before she borrowed one from the library. Oops. At least I'll be able to lend her Froi of the Exiles.)

Which books have you added to your shelves recently? Leave us your link and we'll check them out!

  12. Your library has some awesome new books! I really enjoyed Embrace and Under the Never Sky. I have yet to read a Melina Marchetta book, but I want to soon because I've heard great things about them, particularly Jellicoe Road.

  13. Great library finds! I often leave the library with similarly sized stacks of books.

    My Stacking the Shelves post is here.

  14. All great books! I've had my eye on Under The Never Sky more recently. It's probably because I've been loving dystopias lately! Enjoy all your books. :) Thanks for stopping by my blog!
