Stacking the Shelves #16


 This meme is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.
I got some MORE amazing review books and I did hyper ventilate when I saw the courier truck trundling along our road! If you do a STS post leave me a link and I'll stop by! :)

For review:
1. City of Shadows (Timeriders #6) - Alex Scarrow

City of Shadows (TimeRiders, #6)
Liam O’Connor should have died at sea in 1912.Maddy Carter should have died on a plane in 2010.Sal Vikram should have died in a fire in 2026.
But all three have been given a second chance—to work for an agency that no one knows exists. Its purpose: to prevent time travel destroying history . . .
Hunted by cyborg assassins from the future, the TimeRiders must abandon New York and go on the run. They escape to Victorian London and the streets where Jack the Ripper roams. But, before they can establish their new base, they make their most shattering discovery yet—and it will change everything . . .











2. The Rise of Nine (Lorien Legacies #3) - Pittacus Lore
The Rise of Nine (Lorien Legacies, #3)
Until I met John Smith, Number Four, I'd been on the run alone, hiding and fighting to stay alive. Together we are much more powerful. But it could only last so long before we had to separate to find the others ...I went to Spain to find Seven, and I found even more, including a tenth member of the Garde who escaped from Lorien alive. Ella is younger than the rest of us, but just as brave. Now we're looking for the others - including John. But so are they. They caught Number One in Malaysia. Number Two in England. And Number Three in Kenya. They caught me in New York - but I escaped. I am Number Six. They want to finish what they started. But they'll have to fight us first
3. Gods and Warriors - Michelle Paver
Gods And Warriors (Gods And Warriors, #1)
In the turbulent world of the Mediterranean Bronze Age, long before the Greek myths, a boy and a girl battle for survival. With the help of three animal allies - a dolphin, a falcon and a lion cub - they defeat the forces of tyranny and withstand the elemental powers of the gods of land and sea.





4. The Ring of Sky (Young Samurai #8) - Chris Bradford
The Ring of Sky (Young Samurai, #8)
AS JACK EMBARKS ON HIS FINAL ADVENTURE, WILL HE MAKE IT BACK TO ENGLAND AND HOME?The Shogun has deemed that any Christian or foreigner now discovered outside the bounds of an official trading port will be instantly put to death. For Jack, Nagasaki is within reach, but the Shogun's samurai are closing in with the help of Jack's old school rival, Kazuki, who has a score to settle.Will Jack make it to the city alive? Will he keep hold of the precious rutter? Can he find a ship bound for England, or will he be burned at the stake? And who is the mysterious Anjin-san?
5. Splintered - A.G. Howard
Splintered
This stunning debut captures the grotesque madness of a mystical under-land, as well as a girl’s pangs of first love and independence. Alyssa Gardner hears the whispers of bugs and flowers—precisely the affliction that landed her mother in a mental hospital years before. This family curse stretches back to her ancestor Alice Liddell, the real-life inspiration for Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Alyssa might be crazy, but she manages to keep it together. For now.
When her mother’s mental health takes a turn for the worse, Alyssa learns that what she thought was fiction is based in terrifying reality. The real Wonderland is a place far darker and more twisted than Lewis Carroll ever let on. There, Alyssa must pass a series of tests, including draining an ocean of Alice’s tears, waking the slumbering tea party, and subduing a vicious bandersnatch, to fix Alice’s mistakes and save her family. She must also decide whom to trust: Jeb, her gorgeous best friend and secret crush, or the sexy but suspicious Morpheus, her guide through Wonderland, who may have dark motives of his own.
Bought:
6. I Am Number Four (Lorien Legacies #1) - Pittacus Lore
I Am Number Four (Lorien Legacies, #1)
Nine of us came here. We look like you. We talk like you. We live among you. But we are not you. We can do things you dream of doing. We have powers you dream of having. We are stronger and faster than anything you have ever seen. We are the superheroes you worship in movies and comic books - but we are real. Our plan was to grow, and train, and become strong, and become one, and fight them. But they found us and started hunting us first. Now all of us are running. Spending our lives in shadows, in places where no one would look, blending in. We have lived among you without you knowing.
But they know.
They caught Number One in Malaysia.Number Two in England.And Number Three in Kenya.They killed them all.
I am Number Four.
I am next.
7. Power of Six (Lorien Legacies #2) - Pittacus Lore
The Power of Six (Lorien Legacies, #2)
I've seen him on the news. Followed the stories about what happened in Ohio. John Smith, out there, on the run. To the world, he's a mystery. But to me . . . he's one of us.
Nine of us came here, but sometimes I wonder if time has changed us—if we all still believe in our mission. How can I know? There are six of us left. We're hiding, blending in, avoiding contact with one another . . . but our Legacies are developing, and soon we'll be equipped to fight. Is John Number Four, and is his appearance the sign I've been waiting for? And what about Number Five and Six? Could one of them be the raven-haired girl with the stormy eyes from my dreams? The girl with powers that are beyond anything I could ever imagine? The girl who may be strong enough to bring the six of us together?
They caught Number One in Malaysia.Number Two in England.And Number Three in Kenya.They tried to catch Number Four in Ohio—and failed.
I am Number Seven. One of six still alive.
And I'm ready to fight

  9. Now, that is a respectable stash of books! I have never read the Pittacus Lore books, but I had wanted to see the movie of I am Number Four. I love Alex Pettyfer, he is just so wholesome, kind surfer dude, boy next door looking.
    But anyway, I have Splintered on my wish list. It is one of the books I missed at BEA and have been waiting to see some reviews, so I'll be waiting to see what you have to say.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and checking it out! I think I might need to count my TBR stacks. 700 books? I'm wondering if you have more than I do and I thought I had a lot.
    I've added you to my blog roll and am a new follower as well, so I'll be back again!
