Stacking the Shelves!


    Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews

    This week was supposed to be the one where I caught up on all my reading and reviews, but then I got really sick and could do nothing but lie in bed all day. At least I got some great new books to look forward to once I don’t feel so crappy!

    Received This Week



    Asunder by Jodi Meadows (!!!)
    Tiger’s Curse by Colleen Houck


    Level 2 by Lenore Appelhans (audiobook)
    Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi (audiobook)


    The Look by Sophia Bennett
    Frogged by Vivian Vande Velde
    That Time I Joined the Circus J. J. Howard
    Dash & Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan
    A Touch of Scarlet by Eve Marie Mont
    Stung by Bethany Wiggins
    The Nightmare Affair by Mindee Arnett
    Wednesdays in the Tower by Jessica Day George

    A big thanks to Chicken House, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Scholastic, Harlequin UK, Kensington, Bloomsbury, and Tor!


    Fox Forever by Mary E. Pearson

    I don’t know how I came to acquire this one, since I didn’t request it or win it, and I’m not one who regularly receives unsolicited books, but it’s mine!

    Blogged This Week (Well, two weeks)

    Sign ups for the second Fairy Tale Read-a-Thon opened last Tuesday
    Last Wednesday I wished for Requiem by Lauren Oliver
    I reviewed the thrilling debut novel Dualed by Elsie Chapman last Thursday
    I wished for the novel Vengeance Bound by Justina Ireland on Wednesday
    I also unveiled my new (and very pink) design on Wednesday
    And yesterday Fairy Tale Friday got postponed due to an unexpected ER visit

      Read This Week


      Level 2 by Lenore Appelhans (audiobook)
      Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi (audiobook)

      I recently discovered that the library in the city next to mine has a huge selection of YA audio and ebooks, and so I’ve started getting into audiobooks, which are great at keeping a bedridden bookworm company (:

      To Read


      Asunder by Jodi Meadows
      Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt
      What’s Left of Me by Kat Zhang

      How was your week? Leave links in the comments below!


    1. I hope you feel better!

      It looks as if you have a lot of great books. I still haven't read Tuesdays at the Castle, so I can't believe there's a sequel coming out soon!

      I really enjoyed What's Left of Me, more than I expected. I hope you do, too!

      1. I know! I thought that the sequel was coming in the Fall, and then I saw that it releases in May! You should hurry up and read it!

        I'm looking forward to What's Left of Me. I'm glad to hear you liked it!

    2. Aw, get better soon! Great haul of books this week! I still need to read Asunder. And I've been dying to read A Touch of Scarlet. :)

    3. That Time I Joined the Circus sounds pretty cool! I read Dash & Lily's Book of Dares and I really liked it! Hope you enjoy all your new reads <3!
      -heather [my stack]

    4. Going Vintage looks so good! And I really loved Dash & Lily's Book of Dares! Hope you enjoy all you got :)

      Here's my STS!

    5. NOOO D: I'm sorry to hear you're sick! I hope you're tons better by now! Asunder's cover is just SO SPANKING BEAUTIFUL.

      Even if I hated the first book I want to own it JUST TO PET THE PRETTY COVER.

      I hope you enjoy all your books! The Nightmare Affair looks absolutely awesome! :)

      1. I know! The cover is gorgeous. I was looking forward to stroking the beautiful cover, but when it showed up I was sad to see the title isn't...what's the word...bumpy/raised/strokable? Y'know what I mean. The cover's completely flat ):

        I'm looking forward to The Nightmare Affair!

    6. It seems like a lot of people are sick this week. Me too. Great haul of books. Asunder definitely has the prettiest cover.

      Come visit me if you can.


    7. Wow, great stack of books this week! I am really looking forward to That Time I Joined the Circus - sounds so different and really good! And I need to get Going Vintage for the cover alone, lol! It's adorable! Can't wait!
      Enjoy your new reads :)

    8. I'm about to read Asunder and A Touch of Scarlet. I can't wait to read both of those. And the rest of the books you mentioned are all ones I'm dying to read. Seriously great haul. And yes, I love the cover of basically all of these, especially the one for Going Vintage.

      I'm a new linky follower.

    16. Wow. Brilliant Haul.

      I got a copy of Level 2 myself yesterday.

      I really enjoyed Dash & Lily's Book of Dares, and I really hope you do.

      Your post has prompted me to put That Time I Joined The Circus on to my Wish List, so thank you.

      Enjoy your reads.

    17. Loved Shatter Me! If you enjoyed SM, you have to read Destroy Me and then of course Unravel Me which I am reading now and it's amazeballs so far. I also ADORED The Nightmare Affair, MC Dusty is super awesome. I still have to read Incarnate but I have that and Asunder and all the four books in the Tiger series waiting on my TBR pile. Anywaaay, you got a great haul! I hope you enjoy all the books you've got here!! Happy reading and thanks for stopping by! :) xx
