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.


E-book ARCs

Truly, Madly, DeadlySome Quiet PlaceShallow Pond
45 Pounds (More or Less)Life's a Witch (Life's a Witch, #2)Big Girl Panties: A NovelLie Still
Right of WayHollow EarthThe Light in the Ruins

Truly, Madly, Deadly by Hannah Jayne
I seriously requested this book, like, 3 or 4 months ago and had completely given up on it when they approved me. I was so excited that I read it immediately. My review will be up on Monday.
Some Quiet Place by Kelsie Sutton
I'll be honest, I seriously debated requesting this one. That cover is amazing, but feelings literally personified? Like, fear as a person has me skeptical. Some blogger friends have given this the thumbs up though, so hopefully I'll agree.
Shallow Pond by Alissa Grosso
I can't even begin to tell you how impressed I was with this author's Popular (seriously it's awesome) so I'm excited to read her newest.
45 Pounds by K.A. Barson
A girl who has always struggled with her weight wants to lose 45 pounds before her aunt's wedding.
Life's a Witch by Britanny Geragolelis
A descendant of an original Salem witch leads her coven in finding their missing parents.
Big Girl Panties by Stephanie Evanovich
It sounds like it will be about a 32 year-old widow who falls for her personal trainer.
Lie Still by Julia Heaberlin
A murder mystery. With a cover design a little too much like Gone Girl (the strands of blond hair, but with a forehead and elbow), but I've been hearing good things.
Right of Way  by Lauren Barnholdt
A companion novel to the author's Two Way Street. It is my understanding that they are related, but that it is not necessary to have read the other book.
Hollow Earth by John and Carole Barrowman
12 year-old twins can make artwork come to life and enter paintings. Seriously, how cool is that?
The Light in the Ruins by Chris Bohjalian
Set in Tuscany during WWII.

What I bought

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
I know this is the one y'all will comment on. I know because everyone loves this book. I bought it for my vacation next week and I cannot wait to dive in.

What I snagged from the library

Let the Sky Fall (Sky Fall, #1)The Testing (The Testing, #1)Two-Way StreetPretty Girl-13

Let the Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger
I've heard great things about this girl who is a slyph (an air elemental--whatever that is) and the boy she has to protect.
The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau
So I was "invited" to read this from NetGalley only to find out there wasn't a Kindle option. I hate reading books on my computer, so I decided to wait until I could snag it from the library. I've heard mixed reviews and am pretty over dystopians, but I'll give it a shot. 
Two Way Street by Lauren Barnholdt
Even though it isn't necessary to read first, I thought maybe I'd try to get through this one. It may or may not happen.
Pretty Girl 13 by Liz Coley
A girl is kidnapped from a camping trip and develops multiple personalities making her have to dig deep to remember what happened in the three years she was gone. I've heard great things about this one.

So that's all for me. What did you add to your shelves this week? Link me up!

  7. So many great books! I just finished reading Right of Way. It is technically a stand-alone, but there are spoilers for the first book. I won Let the Sky Fall a few weeks ago and can't wait to read it. I hope you enjoy all your books! :-)

  10. I've had my eye on Truly Madly Deadly for quite a while, and I'm excited to get a copy soon. Some Quiet Place also looks cool, and I've seen some pretty good reviews for it. I also got The Testing this week! Happy reading. :D

  11. I really should get to reading Truly Deadly Madly. I've heard really good things about it and I'm definitely in the mood for a nice thriller and murder mystery. May have to follow Dangerous Girls up with that one.

  13. Awesome books. I can't wait to hear your thoughts on Two Way Street and Right of Way--I've had my eye on both books. Enjoy all of your books!

  14. Awesome haul. I didn't click with Truly, Madly, Deadly, but I LOVED Some Quiet Place. And, YES, Throne of Glass!! Great vacation read. Except you probably won't want to do anything until you finish it. :P I haven't read Two-Way Street yet, either, but it's on my shelf. I like to read books in the order they were written, so I'll definitely have to read that before Right of Way. Hope you enjoy all your new reads!

  17. Oh, Pretty Girl-13..that one was good! Disturbing, but definitely good. I am super excited for Some Quiet Place, too! Enjoy!

Hello, there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one and will do my best to respond--usually on your blog instead of on mine. I will, however, always answer direct questions. Due to serious time restraints, this blog is now an award free zone, but I appreciate the thought!
