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.

My anniversary was this week and me and the hubby went to the lake to do some fishing and to get some much needed R & R.


I'm about to kill Blogger. I've tried to format these pictures for the past 20 minutes and am totally over it. So anyway, we had beautiful weather for most of the day, caught a few fish, and a lovely anniversary.
Now on to the books.

E-Book ARCs

Dangerous Girls Awaken (Abandon Trilogy, #3) The Never List Invisible

Dangerous Girls  by Abigail Haas
I'm so excited for this book about a girl being tried for her best friend's murder after her friend dies during Spring Break in Aruba. 
Awaken by Meg Cabot
Another book I was approved for on NetGalley way after I had given up on it. I was approved for this one the day before its release. (And I still need to read the second book...)
The Never List by Koethi Zan
A thriller about a girl who was held captive for three years whose abductor is now up for parole years later. 
Invisible  by Marni Bates
I realized I didn't put this one on my StS a couple of weeks ago. I've heard that Marni Bates' books are hilarious and I'm definitely in the mood for something funny. 

What I bought

The Distance Between Us For Darkness Shows the Stars (For Darkness Shows the Stars, #1)

The Distance Between Us by Kasie West
I totally made my husband stop at a bookstore on our way out of town so that I could buy this book. I didn't get nearly as much reading done as I thought I would, but will finish this over the weekend. I'm enjoying it so far.
For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund
I bought this one on the way out, too. The paperback was released on Tuesday. I love that cover so much.

What I snagged from the library

Belle Epoque My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century Time Between Us (Time Between Us, #1) Boy Nobody

Belle Epoque by Elizabeth Ross
A girl works as a beauty foil for a wealthy girl who doesn't she's hired help. 
I've heard great things about this book about a teen who accidentally travels back into 16th C. Italy. 
Time Between Us by Tamara Ireland Stone
A time traveling boy from 2012 and a girl from 1995 fall in love. 
Boy Nobody by Allen Zadoff
A teen hit-man who works for a shady government organization.

    I always hear how incredible FOR DARKNESS SHOWS THE STARS is! DANGEROUS GIRLS looks intriguing, too. Hope you enjoy them all :)

  21. Blogger hates me too when it comes to pictures. So if you ever go to my sites and see some off pictures, I know you'll understand. :)
    Anyways, you have a great haul! The distance between us sounds especially good. Happy Reading!
    Here is my STS.


Hello, there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one and will do my best to respond--usually on your blog instead of on mine. I will, however, always answer direct questions. Due to serious time restraints, this blog is now an award free zone, but I appreciate the thought!
