Stacking the Shelves (34)

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews. It's an opportunity for everyone to share the new books that we've acquired.

I got some of these the previous week, but I was too lazy to write up a post in time, so this post covers two weeks. I spotted The Eternity Cure for under $10 on Amazon, and well, I couldn't resist that price.

For Review:

I'm Nobody by Alex Marestaing
Gravity by Abigail Boyd
Thanks to Alex Marestaing & Abigail Boyd!

Borrowed:

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
Inferno by Sherrilyn Kenyon
The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff
Tender Morsels by Margo Lanagan

Bought:

The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa

What did you add to your shelves this week? Please link me up!

    1. I'm psyched to read The Eternity Cure- loved The Immortal Rules. When I saw how discounted it was that day, I had to grab it!

  2. Inferno was okay, but I thought it was a tad disappointing for me. But I really enjoyed the Eternity Cure :) Great haul!

    1. Inferno was a bit disappointing for me, too. I thought it was on the longish side, and some parts could have easily been cut out. It was still pretty good, though.

    Also looking forward to reading your thoughts on Eleanor & Park.

    1. I'm really into Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark-Hunter series at the moment. I still have quite a few books to go before I'm all caught up.

  5. Argh. The Eternity Cure. And I still haven't gotten to the Immortal Rules yet. The Replacement was nice, hope you enjoy that one. How is Sherrilyn Kenyon's YA by the way? I haven't exactly gotten around to it yet. Don't know if I should. Thank you so much for stopping by! Enjoy your pretties and happy reading!

    1. The Replacement is the only Brenna Yovanoff book I haven't read yet, and I'm really looking forward to it. I enjoyed Paper Valentine, and The Space Between was just phenomenal.

    1. I'm happy to hear that you're liking The Eternity Cure so far! I was a little skeptical when I read The Immmortal Rules because I was a bit jaded with vampires by then, but I was most pleasantly surprised by it.

  8. Oh I loved the kagawa book but I heard mixed things about the replacement, I hope you'll like them all. Happy reading!

    1. That's how I felt after reading The Immortal Rules- I needed the sequel right then and there! I'm glad the wait is over!

  16. There are a lot of new ones that I haven't heard of yet - one of the reasons I absolutely love visiting your blog. I'm always adding stuff to my to-read list. I look forward to what you think of The Eternity Cure. Different feelings on it overall, but I really enjoyed it - even more than The Immortal Rules and I know that you like Allison. I love seeing what different people get out of a story. Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven.

    1. Allie really impressed me as a heroine, and Kagawa's take on vampires was so refreshing. My reading list is seriously backed up at the moment, but I must find time to squeeze in The Eternity Cure!

  17. Ok so I am definitely in the minority here but I didn't find myself enjoying Eleanor & Park as much as others did. I'm only saying this to balance out your expectations :) But I really hope you love it! I need to check out those books you got for review, I haven't heard of either! Enjoy your books - happy reading!!

    1. I felt the same way about Love and Other Perishable Items- everyone seemed to love that book except me. I also usually end up being the person who loves a book that nobody else did, lol.

  18. Oh, nice variety here!! I've heard a lot of good things about Eleanor and Park, so I hope you'll love that one too :D Same goes for The Replacements! Yay for Eternity Cure, I really need to crack open my copy of Immortal Rules so I can get caught up! Enjoy all of this good stuff Lee!!

    1. The Immortal Rules sat around on my shelf for ages before I got around to reading it. After I finished it, I was really upset with myself for neglecting it like that. It's so, so good!
