Stacking the Shelves #73

Stacking the Shelves

MERRY CHRISTMAS! I know I'm a tad bit late, but I hope you guys all had a fantastic day!


The other day I created a post of the top ten books I'd like to receive for Christmas and I'm so incredibly happy, as I got 3 books that were on the list! They're utterly gorgeous and I'm so excited to read them!
Books Received for Christmas:
Perfect Chemistry (Perfect Chemistry, #1)The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle, #1)Lament (Books of Faerie, #1)The Scorpio Races

These all look amazing and HOW BEAUTIFUL ARE THESE COVERS?! Especially The Scorpio Races, I literally can't stop staring at it. 
 I've heard such good things about these books and I'm really, really, really excited to read them! Not a lot of people have recommended Lament but I LOVE faerie books, so I'm really looking forward to this!

Books Received from Netgalley: 
One of the Guys
This looks so adorable - I'm really excited to read it! I love contemporary books like this so I think I'm really going to enjoy it!

And finally, a picture of the books I received. Thank you so much Mom and Dad! <3
LOOK HOW PRETTY!

  1. Aaah The Raven Boys! I'm going to keep telling you how amazing it is :D
    And Perfect Chemistry as well.
    I'm very curious about One of the Guys, I really like the synopsis of that one! And maybe I should look into The Scorpio Races because I love Maggie Stiefvater's writing in the Raven Cycle so much.

    I hope you enjoy the books! x
