Stacking the Shelves 29JUL12

Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews to allow us to share what books we have received in the past week. As you can see, I had an exceptional book haul this week. (Sidenote: love this graphic-all the pretty colors!)

On the left is a stack of books I bought at a Kiersten White signing, celebrating the release of Endlessly, the conclusion to her Paranormalcy trilogy. Besides White, Cynthia Hand, Robin LaFevers, and Marie Lu were there so I eagerly snatched up their books and now have autographed copies! I also received a button for Grave Mercy-"Why be the sheep...when you can be the wolf?"

On the right is a mix of sources. Up first is A Midsummer's Nightmare by Kody Keplinger, which I won from Once Upon a Twilight. As a big fan of Keplinger, I am looking forward to reading her latest. Next up are two Amazon Vine review books and then we have Sulan, Episode 1: The League by Camille Picott, which I will be reviewing in September as part of a blog tour. Lastly is a stack of library books, recent YA releases that I requested my library buy. Happily they complied! I have already read Keeping the Castle, which was adorable as expected, and Dreamless (Team Orion!) Currently I am about a quarter of the way through For Darkness Shows the Stars. I am not loving it the way I hoped to but there is still plenty of time.

This is way more books than I usually get in a week (or even a month) but it makes me really happy to see! What did you get this week? If you've read these, which did you like most?

  2. I loved Grave Mercy and I liked Unearthly. I also enjoyed Keeping the Castle. I am planning to read For Darkness Shows the Stars in the next couple of weeks. I am sorry to hear that you aren't enjoying it like you'd thought you would. I hope it gets better! Persuasion is one of my favorite Jane Austen novels. I want to read In Honor and My Life Next Door. I still haven't read Legend yet either.
