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.
So this was my last full week at work. As many of you know, I start student teaching in a little over a week, and while I've decided to keep my office job on a part-time basis, I'm so excited that this will be the last week of my career (hopefully) where I will have to sit in front of a computer day in and day out (although it's been good for my blog).
Book-wise, I have some pretty great titles to share with you all this week.
The Beginning of Everything by Robyn Schneider
About a golden boy adjusting to life after a horrible accident that he believes has ruined his life. Based on star ratings, a lot of my GR/blogger friends seem to have liked this, but I haven't read any reviews yet.
The Bitter Kingdom by Rae Carson
I've told myself a billion times to stop requesting titles that are the second or third book in a series where I haven't read the first book, but I just continue to do it. I have started The Girl of Fire and Thorns. I'm not loving it, but I've heard the second book is much better.
Taste Test by Kelly Fiore
I absolutely love the show MasterChef and think this book about a teen cooking competition looks adorable.
Overpowered by Mark H. Kruger
I'm honestly not exactly sure what this one is about...teens develop super-powers I believe.
To Be Perfectly Honest by Sonya Sones
A story of a teen pathological liar told in verse.
The Year of Shadows by Claire Legrand
I don't read a lot of MG, but this book about a girl who lives with her father and cat in a run-down concert hall who meets ghosts who need her help sounds adorable. And I love that cover.
Thrice Told Tales by Catherine Lewis
I so intrigued by the concept of this book: Writing advice using the nursery rhyme Three Blind Mice.
What I snagged from the library
Bubble World by Carol Snow
I've enjoyed Carol Snow's adult novels and I love this cover. I'm not exactly sure what it's about, but it sounds like a teen girl finds out her perfect life isn't really perfect in a Truman Show sort of way.
The Academy: Game On by Monica Seles
The first book in a series that follows a group of teens at an exclusive sports academy.
Earthbound by Aprilynn Pike
I got roughly 30% into the e-arc I have of this book, but was having trouble following. I'm hoping the finished version will be a bit clearer.
So that's it for me this week. I'm pretty excited about what I added to my shelves this week. What did you add to your shelves? Link me up!
