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 wish I had something good to share on the job front, but the wait for my teaching certification continues. Whomp, whomp. I could talk more about this, but I'm not going to.
This week on the blog I posted a review for the book The List which is a wonderful YA book that follows eight different girls through a single week of high school. I also posted a review for the movie You're Next which starts off like every other scary movie, but gets more original and fun in the second half.
This week I have all kinds of books to share with you, so without further adieu...Hope you are all having a splendid weekend!
Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge
The early reviews I've skimmed have labeled this Beauty and the Beast meets Cupid and Psyche. I've read the first chapter or so and it's interesting so far.
Uninvited by Sophie Jordan
This one has been billed as The Scarlet Letter meets Minority Report. I read about 25% of The Uninvited and it wasn't really holding my attention so I put it aside for a bit. I do plan on finishing it...hopefully before publication.
Heartbeat by Elizabeth Scott
A girl's mother is being kept alive by machines for the baby inside her. I don't know if I can do this one. I didn't read the synopsis. I was just like, oh look a new Elizabeth Scott book. We'll see.
Anything to Have You by Paige Harbison
From what I can gather from the synopsis a girl sleeps with her best friend's boyfriend when drunk at a party.
Tales From My Closet by Jennifer Anne Moses
This book follows five girls in high school through the clothing choices. I'm reading this now and it's pretty fun, although a bit young.
Minders by Michelle Jaffe
A girl is accepted into a program where teens live inside the mind of somebody else for 6 weeks, falls in love with her subject, watches him commit a crime, and then has to decide whether or not to turn him in.
And We Stay by Jennifer Hubbard
After her boyfriend shoots himself in their school library a girl transfers to a boarding school and deals with the aftermath.
What I snagged from the library
Nameless by Lili St. Crow
A retelling of Snow White. I've heard good things.
The Nightmare Affair by Mindee Arnett
A girl who is a nightmare, meaning she feeds off of people's bad dreams, I guess, tries to solve a murder.
So that's it for me this week. I'm pretty excited about what I added to my shelves. What did you add to your shelves? Link me up!
