Stacking the Shelves #76 - The week I kind of, somehow, accidentally, ended up with a lot of books. Oops.

Stacking the Shelves

Hi guys! Happy Valentines Day! How has the day gone so far for you? I've celebrated by eating chocolate, treating myself to some books and spending quality time with my boyfriend, who happens to be fictional. It's been a good day!

It was my birthday on Wednesday so I got books, which is awesome. I also got quite a lot of books to review (some came on my birthday!!) and  I decided to buy me two books with my birthday money as I haven't bought a book in months!

Books Gifted to Me:

I finally got Fractured, so my Shattered trilogy is finally complete and I can now marathon them! The Ever After sounds like it's going to be a really interesting read and I think I'm going to really enjoy it. I GOT BEAUTIFUL DARKNESS, SQUEEEEE! I LOVED Beautiful Creatures, so I'm really looking forward to reading the sequel. I also got A Monster Calls, which I'm really looking forward to reading! I loved Patrick Ness' other books, so I hope I enjoy this one too!

Books Received to Review:

I was SO excited when I got Seeker in the mail, despite the negative reviews, I really hope I'll enjoy it, as I love the concept. Marly's Ghost also sounds really good, too! I haven't read the first book of River Daughter, so I'll have to try to get that soon. I hadn't really heard of Winter before and it's the 4th book in a high fantasy series, so I'll have to see if they have that in at my library! I've tried reading Paul Stewart's books before but didn't really enjoy them, so it'll be interesting to see if I enjoy The Nameless One! I'm looking forward to reading Banished and Vowed, too.

Books I Bought:
Young, Gifted and Dead (St Jude's Academy, #1)Killing You Softly (St Jude's Academy, #2)


I saw these at my second-hand book shop and I was immediately intrigued! I don't often read thrillers but these sound really good - and I love the covers' colour schemes!

All Together:

Have you read any of these?

  2. Great haul this week, so many awesome looking books. I've actually read 0 of these, although I do really want to read A Monster Calls - although it made so many blogger friends cry that I am now scared to. I hope you enjoy them all :) Here's my STS.

  3. Great haul! I haven't heard of Killing You Softly or Young, Gifted, and Dead, but I agree, the color scheme of those covers is really eye-catching.

  7. Great haul! I've been seeing Seeker around a lot though I've not yet read any of the reviews. I've been meaning to read the Beautiful Creatures series though I've heard that after the first book most people can't get through the second book. I hope you enjoy your books and have a great week. :)

  8. The Ever After looks amazing but I'm nervous about Jodi Lynn Anderson after Tiger Lily. I don't know why I haven't read the rest of the Beautiful Creatures books even though I loved the first one. Enjoy all of your books!


    I'm a new follower :)

    My haul this week

    I'm also giving away the book of your choice from The Book Depository. Check it out here

  9. I read and LOVED Slated years ago but for some reason have never continued with the series. And I have no clue why, because I really, really loved it (and the love interest). :O I hope you enjoy it - along with all your other new books! :D

  11. I know right, I've heard it's quite a tear-jerker so I better prepare myself! ;D

  12. I'm really excited to read Seeker but the reviews aren't too promising, so I hope I enjoy it! >.< I've also heard that the first book was the best in the BC series and it gets worse from then, but I'm hoping I'm in the minority and that I really enjoy the rest of the series haha! Thank you, hope you have a great week too! :)

  13. Ahh, you didn't enjoy Tiger Lily? That's a pity! I haven't read it yet but it looks quite interesting! Thank you! <3

  15. I've read Beautiful Darkness I think, if it's the 2nd one in the series. Great haul this week!

  16. I absolutely adored A Monster Calls! BEST. BOOK. EVER. *flails* It is really very sad and moving, though, and I might've even sniffled quietly at the end. :')
