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.
I was able to get back into the swing of things a little bit this week. Student teaching while working part-time is still kicking my butt, but I was able to post two reviews this week one for the book Fangirl, which I really enjoyed, and one for the movie 21 Jump Street, which is a hilarious movie that you should definitely check out if you haven't already. I'm currently reading Goodbye, Rebel Blue. It's really good so far and I will do my best to get a review up for it next week.
This week, I added some more amazing books that I can not wait to dive into, including one that has been topping my most anticipated books of the year. So without further ado...here's what I've added to my shelf this week.
Tandem by Anna Jarzab
This multi-verse novel has been one of my most anticipated novels of the year. I cannot wait to dive into this one.
Red by Alison Cherry
So I've been looking forward to this one, too, but I am definitely curious about how good it is going to be. See, this novel is about a town in which redheads hold all the power and a girl who dyes her hair is found out by at least one person...so I'm wondering. If hair dye is an option than why wouldn't everyone just dye their hair red? This question seriously better be answered.
Just One Year by Gayle Forman
The companion to Just One Day...which I need to read immediately.
Bellman & Black by Diane Setterfield
A boy's "cruel act" of killing a bird comes back to haunt him as an adult.
Time After Time by Tamara Ireland Stone
The companion to The Distance Between Us...which I need to read immediately, ahem, again. Why do I request sequels to books I haven't read yet? That's a good question.
Cutting Room Floor by Dawn Klehr
A girl tries to solve the murder of her favorite teacher. I love a good YA mystery and that cover is sufficiently creepy.
Kingdom of Little Wounds by Suzann Cokal
A young seamstress and a royal nursemaid find themselves at the center of an epic power struggle. Look at that cover. Those mermaids!
Blythewood by Carol Goodman
Boarding school and dark secrets. Sold.
The Brokenhearted by Amelia Kahaney
A teenage girl is transformed into a reluctant superhero and must balance her old life with the dark secret of who she has become. So I haven't read any review for this yet, but I cannot help but notice that my GR friends who have read it so far have all given it 1 or 2 stars. I don't always agree with my friends, of course, but my expectations of this have definitely been lowered.
No Angel by Helen Keeble
The blurb on the cover is: He flies. He fights demons. He's looking down your shirt. Heh.
Bang by Lisa McMann
The sequel to Crash.
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!
