Stacking the Shelves (10)

"Stacking the Shelves" is a weekly feature hosted by Tynga's Reviews
Twas a busy buying week for me, so let's get down to it.

BORROWED

1. Summer and the City by Candace Bushnell
I'm ALMOST done with The Carrie Diaries so I clearly need this one at the ready.
BOUGHT
             

        


 2. The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson
Bought in e-book form because it sounds awesome. And it was on sale.

3. 52 Reasons to Hate My Father by Jessica Brody
This one also sounds great. And was also on sale in e-book form. Holla!

4. The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson
I've been meaning to pick up this one FOREVER and so, yet another GREAT e-book sale convinced me it would be a VERY GOOD IDEA to snag it immediately.

5. Whatever After by Sarah Mlynowski
This week's stacking the shelves is brought to you by e-book sales on Amazon. HURRAY.

6. Splintered by A.G. Howard
Okay, this is also an e-book but it WASN'T on sale. I bought it because Hobbitsies is hosting the Debut Author Challenge and there's a Goodreads Book Club for it. Since I offered to help run said book club, I figured I should actually read the book. And so I bought it.

7. Everneath by Brodi Ashton
ANOTHER e-book sale for an awesome sounding book.

8. Touched by Corrine Jackson
As much as I LOVE actual books, all these crazy awesome e-book sales are REALLY DOING IT FOR ME.

9. Mister Monday by Garth Nix
E-book sale plus Garth Nix. WHAT IS MY LIFE? HOW DID IT GET SO AWESOME?

10. The Madman's Daughter by Megan Shepherd
I bought the hardcopy of this book with the coupon I got from BN last week. Hurray 15% off!

11. Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
British book purchase #2. It was the only copy in the store. My hands got all grabby. IT WAS AMAZING.

12. Pantomime by Laura Lam
I went to the signing Thursday night and blogged about it in my Friday Coffee Clutch (discussion) post. It was SO MUCH FUN. Especially since I got to go with some lovely blogging friends.

13. Etiquette and Espionage by Gail Carriger
If there was ONE new release I had to buy while in London, It was absolutely, without question, THIS ONE. It's so pretty and I'm so excited and YES YA STEAMPUNK FROM GAIL CARRIGER. *sigh*

Them be the books, BUT WAIT. THERE'S MORE. I've decided to add a new section to this post. *Drumroll please...*

THE WEEK IN REVIEW

On Sunday I reviewed My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick.

Monday marked the start of The Carrie Diaries Read-Along I'm doing with Harley Bear Book Blog. You guys wanna check that out. There's a GIVEAWAY involved.

I listed my Top Ten Best Bookish Memories on Tuesday. I really enjoyed making that list. Everything on it holds a special place in my heart, but I think #10's my favorite!

Just Like Fate by Cat Patrick and Suzanne Young was my Waiting on Wednesday pick is past week. Absolutely CANNOT wait until August for this one!

On Thursday I reviewed Sever by Lauren DeStefano. The trilogy might be over, but there's a new series on the horizon and I can't wait to get my grabby hands on it.

Friday I told you all about my VERY FIRST AUTHOR SIGNING and how awkward these kinds of things make me feel. I still feel pretty awkward, so if you do too, please come discuss with me, okay?

I would say my week went pretty well. How did yours go? Let me know in the comments below!

  2. Wow, you got SO MANY books! I really hope you like Jenna Fox. I didn't, but a lot of other bloggers did. I've also been meaning to read Girl of Fire and Thorns but I HAVEN'T yet so can't wait to see what you think of it. I just keep on mentioning books that I'm excited for: Splintered, Everneath, The Madman's Daughter, Pantomime and mostly: SCARLET <3 EEEEE. Enjoy :D

    1. :( I'm sorry you didn't like Jenna Fox!! And Girl of Fire and Thorns as been on my list for SO long. I'm so excited to finally have a copy (as well as a copy of all the rest of the books).

      Honestly, I need to figure out this whole self-control thing. I feel like I need to repeat the following: just because an e-book's on sale doesn't mean I should buy it. I'll have to work on that for next week.

      Thanks for stopping by, Judith! ^_^

  12. I read Everneath pretty recently and it was really good! I was a bit confused at times but the story got easier to follow as it went on. I hope you really enjoy Splintered. I've wanted to read it since it came out but I still have to buy myself a copy!

    1. I'm not entirely sure WHAT I'm expecting for Pantomime, but I'm thinking that's a good thing.

      If you end up checking out the Carrie Diaries, let me know what you think. It's definitely not what I expected and as such I didn't love it as much as I wanted to, but it was still pretty cute.

      Thanks for stopping by! :)

    1. I can't imagine a planet on which I wouldn't enjoy Etiquette and Espionage. But let's hope I haven't overhyped the book for myself.

    1. I wish I could say I loved the second one as much as you did. Carrie kind of bothered me the WHOLE time and I was never sure what was going on or why. I DID love Miranda. But I always love Miranda, so that was to be expected.

      Thanks for stopping by, Giselle! :)
