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'm finished with my 7th week of student teaching which is roughly half-way through the semester. I cannot believe how fast it is going. I'm busier than ever--and I'm about to get slammed with 85 essays next week. This week was pretty slow on the review book front, but the one I got is the one I've been crossing my fingers for. It doesn't come out until January, but there's no way I'm waiting that long to read it. I'm so far behind on my TBR it won't matter if this one jumps to the front of the line. I got some excellent books from the library this week, as well. I have a three day weekend this weekend, which is awesome, because my house looks like a tornado hit it. I have a ton of projects to grade and my own homework to do, but I'm hoping to squeeze in some reading time. I'm also hoping to watch the first episode of American Horror Story whose new season premiered on Wednesday. I love that show and am excited that Kathy Bates is in the cast this season--and that it's about witches! I reviewed a couple of books this week: Goodbye, Rebel Blue and Girls in White Dresses (which I've read 3 times now in the past 2 years). I highly recommend them both. I'm currently reading Vicious, which is super intriguing. I'm hoping to have a review up next week, but we'll have to see how it goes.Well, that's about all for me; I hope everyone is doing well! Now on to the books.
Being Sloane Jacobs by Lauren Morrill
I'm not going to lie, I did a little happy dance when I got this one. I'm being dying to read this book which sounds like a cross between The Parent Trap and The Cutting Edge. This is probably going to happen immediately. I'm so excited.
What I Won
The lovely Jen over at YA Romantics holds a no-strings-attached/just-hit-enter giveaway most Fridays and I was lucky enough to win on a day when two books were up for grabs. I'm so excited to have copies of both of these. Jen is awesome and so is her blog. If you don't follow her already, you should remedy that!
3:59 by Gretchen McNeil
I've been dying for this parallel worlds/doppelganger book for months. I was so happy when it came in a couple of days ago.
Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson
This book about Epics--people with super powers who use them to rule instead of help--sounds so intriguing. I haven't read any reviews for it yet, but I can't ignore the 5 star ratings several of my GR friends have doled out.
Tumble & Fall by Alexandra Coutts
I haven't read any reviews for this end-of-the-world novel either, but I can't ignore the 1 and 2 and DNF ratings some of my GR friends have given it.
This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales
I've heard great things about this book about a shy outsider who finds her place with musicians and DJs. It looks really cute.
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!
