Stacking the Shelves (19)

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 had to return some books to the library this week, and as usual, we couldn't resist browsing around and leaving with at least as many books as we had just brought back.

Persephone by Katilin Bevis

For Review:

Persephone by Kaitlin Bevis
Thanks to Kaitlin Bevis!

Ally's Books:

Borrowed:

The Goddess Test by Aimée Carter
The Peculiars by Maureen Doyle McQuerry
Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson
Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor
The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson


Lee's Books:

Borrowed:

The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa
The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa

Bought:

Slam by Nick Hornby
Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead
I'm supposed to be on a strict book buying ban right now, but Amazon had a great Cyber Monday deal on both of these hardcovers—Slam was $4, and Spirit Bound was $2.66!

Won:
Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols
A HUGE thank you to Jennifer Echols for this!


Melissa's Books:

Borrowed:

The Infects by Sean Beaudoin

  3. As usual, you had a great week! I wasn't the biggest fan of The Goddess Test, but enjoyed it enough that I read the next one, and have the final book from NetGalley. I hope Ally likes it more than I did!

    Happy Reading!

  9. Great haul! Really enjoyed The Goddess Test and I LOVE LOVE LOVE Spirit Bound. Adrian Ivashkov is fantastic in that one! The Iron Fey series is a favorite of mine too. I am so jealous you got a signed Jennifer Echols book! I've become a big fan. I still need to read Going Too Far but I heard it is one of the best. Happy reading!

  22. I can say I didn't enjoy The Peculiars. It just wasn't for me. It was a struggle to finish reading, but I hope you'll have a better time with it.

    However, the rest of these books really look like they are a great haul. Hope you enjoy! :)
