Stacking the Shelves #20


I am on a book-buying ban. But my wonderful, amazing, kind, lovely, stunning parents bought me a lot of books this week. I bought one physical book for such an amazing price and bought quite a few
on my kindle.

Bought:
1. Fury - Elizabeth Miles
Fury (The Fury Trilogy #1)
Sometimes sorry isn't enough....It’s winter break in Ascension, Maine. The snow is falling and everything looks pristine and peaceful. But not all is as it seems...
Between cozy traditions and parties with her friends, Emily loves the holidays. And this year’s even better--the guy she’s been into for months is finally noticing her. But Em knows if she starts things with him, there’s no turning back. Because his girlfriend is Em’s best friend.
On the other side of town, Chase is having problems of his own. The stress of his home life is starting to take its toll, and his social life is unraveling. But that’s nothing compared to what’s really haunting him. Chase has done something cruel...something the perfect guy he pretends to be would never do. And it’s only a matter of time before he’s exposed.
In Ascension, mistakes can be deadly. And three girls—three beautiful, mysterious girls—are here to choose who will pay.
Em and Chase have been chosen.
2. Dodger - Terry Pratchett 
Dodger
Dodger is a tosher – a sewer scavenger living in the squalor of Dickensian London.
Everyone who is nobody knows Dodger. Anyone who is anybody doesn’t.
But when he rescues a young girl from a beating, suddenly everybody wants to know him.
And Dodger’s tale of skulduggery, dark plans and even darker deeds begins . . .
3. Endless Summer - Jessica Echols
Endless Summer (The Boys Next Door, #1-2)
 Two irresistible boys. One unforgettable summer.  
Lori can’t wait for her summer at the lake. She loves wakeboarding and hanging with her friends—including the two hotties next door. With the Vader brothers, she's always been just one of the guys. Now that she’s turning sixteen, she wants to be seen as one of the girls, especially in the eyes of Sean, the older brother. But that’s not going to happen—not if the younger brother, Adam, can help it.
Lori plans to make Sean jealous by spending time with Adam. Adam has plans of his own for Lori. As the air heats up, so does this love triangle. Will Lori’s romantic summer melt into one hot mess?
4. Ultraviolet - R.J. Anderson
Ultraviolet (Ultraviolet, #1)
 Once upon a time there was a girl who was special. 
This is not her story. 
Unless you count the part where I killed her. 
Sixteen-year-old Alison has been sectioned in a mental institute for teens, having murdered the most perfect and popular girl at school. But the case is a mystery: no body has been found, and Alison’s condition is proving difficult to diagnose. Alison herself can’t explain what happened: one minute she was fighting with Tori—the next she disintegrated. Into nothing. But that’s impossible. Right?
5. The Frenzy - Francesca Lia Block
The Frenzy
"Love is a werewolf, influenced by the moon and terror, and always about to change."
Liv has a secret.
Something happened to her when she was thirteen. Something that changed everything. Liv knows she doesn't belong anymore--not in her own skin, not in her family . . . not anywhere. The only time she truly feels like herself is when she's with her boyfriend, Corey, and in the woods that surround her town.
But in the woods, a mysterious woman watches Liv. In the woods, a pack of wild boys lurks. In the woods, Liv learns about the curse that will haunt her forever. The curse that caused the frenzy four years ago. And that may cause it again, all too soon.
While Corey and Liv's love binds them together, Liv's dark secret threatens to tear them apart as she struggles to understand who--or what--she really is. And by the light of the full moon, the most dangerous secrets bare their claws. . . .
