Stacking The Shelves (1)

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews to showcase any books that I have received for review, bought, borrowed, or won to read.


I'm finally back to blogging after being without internet for a few weeks after I moved. I haven't yet conquered Google Reader (it's a little scary at the moment), but I plan on working at it this Sunday, catching up on my subscriptions, and commenting on posts that I have missed while I was away. It's nice to be back!


For Review

Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult and Samantha van Leer (Thanks to Simon & Schuster)
Changeling by Philippa Gregory (Thanks to Simon & Schuster Canada)
Shadowfell by Juliet Marillier (Thanks to Random House and NetGalley)

Big thanks to Simon & Schuster Canada for Between the Lines and Changeling, both from traditionally adult authors having a go at YA - I'm interested to see how they turn out. I have been meaning to read something by Juliet Marillier for a long while so I'm excited to read Shadowfell.


Bought

Insurgent by Veronica Roth
Red Glove by Holly Black
Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers

I am absolutely dying to start Insurgent, but I need to finish my current read first. Red Glove is the last book I needed to buy to complete my Curse Worker Trilogy collection so I am pleased to have it. And I definitely needed to own Grave Mercy after reading it from NetGalley - now I can force it into other people's hands to get them to read it too!

  8. I want Grave Mercy so bad and I have the Insurgent audio, just need to listen to it (I'm listening to The Scorpio Races for the second time, first), and I looooved Red Glove. So very, very much. I hope you enjoy it. It's one of my favorite series.

  17. I've been seeing Changeling in a lot of people's mailboxes! I forgot Jodi Picoult was venturing into the YA genre, I'm curious to see how it would turn out. Hooray for the books you bought and completing the Curseworkers series. :) I hope you enjoy your books.

  22. Yay! Good to have you back! I've been meaning to clean out my google reader too, but the task seems too impossible. LOL

    Looks like everyone is getting Changeling. Gonna have to see what it's about, besides the obvious. LOL

  23. Nice book haul! Changeling looks very good. I didn't know that Jodi Picoult was doing a YA. I wonder if it's good...

    Anyway, Welcome back to the internet :)
