Stacking the Shelves (11)

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.

This post is for the past two weeks, during which Ally and Melissa celebrated their first Goodreads wins, and Ally and I made a spur of the moment library run. It was yet another one of those "We're just going to browse but not borrow anything" trips. Of course we borrowed books. In our defense, though, we were both having a pretty bad day, and going to the library cheered us up a bit.

For Review:

The Lure of Shapinsay by Krista Holle
Thanks to Krista Holle for the eBook!

Ally's Books:

Borrowed:
Jinx by Meg Cabot
Vesper by Jeff Sampson
Across the Universe by Beth Revis
Nightshade by Andrea Cremer
Won from Goodreads:

Bought:
If I Stay by Gayle Forman

Borrowed:
Infamous by Sherrilyn Kenyon
This Is Not a Test by Courtney Summers

    1. As much as I really enjoyed both books, I loved Where She Went just a tad more, too. I originally borrowed both from the library, but when I saw If I Stay while out shopping, I had to buy it. I'll add a copy of Where She Went to my shelves as soon as I can.

      Thanks for stopping by!
