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.
Holy moly, this week kicked my ass. My cooperating teacher and I are holding individual conferences to discuss each of our 80+ students' essays, and it has been insane. I'm half-way through my practicum and know that it will be over before I know it, but I've seriously never been so tired in my life. Don't get me wrong, this has been an amazing experience and I know I'm going into the right profession, I'm just explaining why you haven't seen me around this week...and why you probably won't see me much next week either. I've been doing some reading, although, of course, not nearly as much as I would like, but I do have a couple of books that I'm almost finished with that I'm crossing my fingers I'll finish this weekend (although I'm probably going to get sucked into zombie-TV mode. I have a ton of shows on my DVR I'd love to get through, too). I did get quite a few books I'm excited about reading this week, so without further audieu, here they are. I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!
The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
I've been dying to get my hands on this book about "talented" teens who are recuited by the FBI to work on cold cases. I seriously love this simple cover. Whoever designs covers for Disney Hyperion is amazing.
After Eden by Helen Douglas
A girl starts to fall for a boy who has traveled back from the future to save the world...that her male best friend destroys.
The In-Between by Barbara Stewart
When Elanor’s near-death experience opens a door to a world inhabited by bold, beautiful Madeline, she finds her life quickly spiraling out of control.
The Twinmaker by Sean Williams
High-stakes action combines with issues of friendship and body image in this timely and thought-provoking exploration of the intersection of technology and identity.
The Supreme Macaroni Company by Adriani Trigiani
A delicious modern tale that takes readers from the cobblestone streets of Greenwich Village, to lush New Orleans, and home to Italy, while exploring the tricky dynamics between old world craftsmanship and new world ambition.
What I snagged from the library
Premeditated by Josin McQuein
I've been dying to get my hands on this one. I love books about revenge, and this one about a girl who enrolls at a private school to enact revenge on the boy her cousin tried to commit suicide over sounds dark and wonderful.
Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy by Helen Fielding
So, as you all probably know by know since the author herself announced it on TV, Mark Darcy has been killed off. I read BJ when it first came out in America back 14 years ago. Over the years I've read it several times and what makes it so wonderful is bloody Mark Darcy. I'm still debating whether or not I'm going to actually read this, but that's what libraries are for.
The Spectacular Now by Tim Tharp
I had this book about a teenage alcholic who starts to fall for a girl who is the exact opposite of what he is used to before, but had to return it before I got to it (when a book gets turned into a movie the requests for it always sky-rockets). I'm hoping to be able to get through it this time.
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!
