Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature hosted by Tyngas Reviews. This meme allows us to share the books we've recently added to our shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks! *Clicking the link of a book's title will take you to Goodreads.
The Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Robin Palmer
This was billed as "Gilmore Girls meets Postcards from the Edge crossed with L.A. Candy". Sounds good to me.
The Original 1982 by Lori Carson
Another novel of two parallel views of what would have happened if a young woman would have made a different decision. Very Sliding Doors.
Wild Awake by Hilary T. Smith
Early reviews have been pretty positive, so fingers crossed.
Crime of Privilege by Walter Walker
I love books/movies/tv shows about the inner workings of America's richest and most influential families.
Ooh La La! by Jamie Cat Callan
This just looks cute. I love that cover.
A Hundred Summers by Beatriz Williams
I know this blog is new, but if you've been following me at all you've probably come to realize that I am an absolute sucker for a cover featuring girls chilling on the beach. A side effect from growing up in Wyoming, I guess.
What I snagged from the library
What's Left of Me by Kat Zhang
I've heard great things about this one, so I'm excited to read it.
Icons by Margaret Stohl
Ok, so I'm not sure why I pre-ordered this from my library because I couldn't get past page 50 of Beautiful Creatures (and I tried, like, 3 times). The cover and synopsis looked/sounded so interesting. Early reviews have been dismal and tell me that I'll be lucky to even get to 50, but I'm gonna give it the old college try.
Crash by Lisa McMann
I really like this cover. The fire reflected in her eyes, the pretty green eyeliner. About a girl who envisions an accident over and over. I got the Playaway and it's only 5 hours long.
The Best Night of Your (Pathetic) Life by Tara Altebrando
Another Playaway. About an all-day scavenger hunt. It sounds fun.
The Catastrophic History of You and Me by Jesse Rothenberg
A girl dies of a literal broken-heart and has to go through the 5 stages of grief in order to move on. Another Playaway. Um, I recently discovered them and may have gone a little overboard in my ordering. Thank God the library's free!
Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight
I haven't read any reviews for this one, yet. I've heard it has some twists and turns, so I want to go in blind, but I've seen quite a few 4/5 star ratings, so I'm excited. I love a good twisty book.
The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson
This isn't my normal cup of tea, but it looks good and I've heard positive things.
The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey
I ordered this book after reading Courtney's review over at Courtney Reads a lot.
That's it for me this week. What about you? What did you get that you can't wait to dive into? Link me up.
