Stacking the Shelves (3)

"Stacking the Shelves" is a weekly feature hosted by Tynga's Reviews
Since I GRADUATED COLLEGE this past week, I decided to treat myself by purchasing a couple of books. A friend and I went to Barnes and Noble together after my last in-class final and we each limited ourselves to 3 books. Can you believe that? THREE. I'm a superhero. Then again, I did start compiling my holds list at my library at home two weeks ago. So there's that.
All of this is piled up on top of everything from last week and the week before, of course, since I have no self-control to speak of.



1. Seraphina by Rachel Hartman
I took this out of the library a couple of months ago but ran out of summer before I got a chance to read it. Take II it is.

2. In Honor by Jessi Kirby
This story sounds so heartbreaking and I love a good cryfest, don't you?

3. Dash & Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan
My friend's mom bought her this one for Chanuka. She finished it. It was near me. I asked to borrow it. She said yes. Now I get to read it! (Thanks Leah! ^_^)


4. The Diviners by Libba Bray
I read the first few chapters of A Great and Terrible Beauty and I really like it so far. I also LOVE the plot of this book. I mean, occult, murder, New York, 1920s and magic? It's basically all of my favorite things wrapped into one and I cannot wait.

5. If I Stay by Gayle Forman
Everyone loves Gayle Forman. I want to love Gayle Forman. Therefore I will read this ASAP.

6. Bittersweet by Sarah Ockler
When I showed the summary of this book to my friend who went book shopping with me post-finals, she said: "This sounds like Sarah Dessen." Maybe that's why I like the sound of this book so much. Either way, I must read.

And that's what's going on with me. What did you guys add to the TBR stacks this week?


  1. I want to love Gayle Forman, too! I haven't read anything by her, but I might pick up If I Stay from the library.

    I liked In Honor, but I didn't love it. There is this part towards the end that made me so frustrated with the MC. But it's a good book. Hope you like it, and everything else :)

    1. I spent the afternoon devouring If I Stay. This is not, I repeat NOT, a 'might pick up from the library' kind of book. It is a 'purchase and cry over' kind of book.

  2. In Honor and The Diviners! I've been wanting to read these! Awesome books, have fun reading them!

    My STS

  3. Don't feel bad about not having self-control. I don't have any either. Come check out my haul as well.


  4. IF I STAY is one of my all time favorites!!!!

    1. I read it over Shabbat. I can't even. I just started Where She Went and I can already tell this one's going to kill me more than the first one.

  5. Don't worry, I have absolutely no self control when it comes to books, either lol :) Happy reading!
