Stacking the Shelves (25) 9.28.13

Saturday, September 28, 2013 7:55 AM with 26 comments


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'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 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!

  11. First off, yes, the 21 Jump Street movie was amazing. It was the film that made me a fan of Channing Tatum.

  21. Wow! Several titles I wasn't aware of! Time to get busy!

  22. Nice haul.Time after Time and A Kingdom of Little Wounds are two I want to get. Happy Reading!
    Here are my newest additions .

  23. I'm reading GOODBYE, REBEL BLUE right now too! I really like it so far. I'm about halfway done at this point. I'm hoping to have my review up tomorrow for the release. That is if everything goes as plans...which almost never happens. Can't wait to see what you think of it. Jealous you got TANDEM! I'm dying to read that one. I've heard lots of mixed things about RED. Curious to see what you think!

  24. I am DYING of jealousy over Just One Year! How awesome for you! That publisher tends to hate me, so it's nice to see that my friends can still get these awesome books.

    I've heard some mixed things about Red, but I admit I am still curious about it. Looking forward to your review to see what side you'll end up on.

    HOW DID I NOT KNOW DIANE SETTERFIELD HAD A NEW NOVEL? WEEEE! And also, congrats on that one. I loved her earlier novel so I hope this one is good too!

    I wasn't a huge fan of The Cutting Room Floor. I had an issue with how sexuality was portrayed, but I hope it works better for you :)

    And wow -- Lisa McMann gets some really awesome covers!

    Great STS! You got some very awesome and interesting books :D

  25. I am soo jealous you got a copy of Blythewood. Penguin loves you and you are sooo lucky! Also can't wait to hear your thoughts on Red and Tandem. I have copies also and should be reading them sooooonish.


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!
