Stacking the Shelves (28) 10.19.13

Saturday, October 19, 2013 11:14 AM with 20 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'd like to start today's post with a HUGE thank you to everybody who commented on my post about commenting. I'm in awe of the responses I got. Every single person who commented had something significant to say. I've never seen a discussion post (although I'm sure they exist) where the comments were all paragraphs long. I'm still responding to all of them, but hope to get to them today. I will be to all of your blogs this week, too, so please don't think I've forgotten about you. Seriously, thank you. If you want to see what I'm talking about go here.

Sorrow's Knot by Erin Bow
The dead lurk in the shadows in this book, but certain women have the power to create magically knotted cords to keep them out. Sounds pretty intriguing.
Parasite by Mira Grant
A decade into the future, almost every human has a genetically engineered tapeworm residing in them that keeps them disease-free. This sounds so creepy, wonderful, but creepy.
Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh
Ms. Brosh runs a popular blog by the same name. It is filled with amusing tales of her life that are told through narration and (pretty horrible) drawings. I've started this book and have been reading snippets at a time. It's pretty funny.
Sense and Sensibility by Joanna Trollope
An contemporary look at the novel.

The Eye of Minds  by James Dashner
I still need to read The Maze Runner series (and do plan to), but I'm excited to dive into this book about a future where most people spend their time in a virtual game.
Antigoddess by Kendare Blake
Ancient Greek gods Athena and Hermes are dying and set off to seek answers.

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!

  6. Parasite is supposed to be good! I have it, but haven't got around to reading it yet. I hope you enjoy all of your books!

  7. Nice haul, Antigoddess looks interesting. I love books that have characters based in greek mythology.

  8. While it's the second last among the Austen books that I like, the modern Sense and Sensibility looks interesting. Looking forward to your thoughts on Parasite as well. I've seen mixed reviews for that new Mira Grant.

    Great week!

  9. I have Parasite and Antigoddess as well and I hope to start them soon, they look amazing.
    Happy reading!

    My haul

  10. I had no idea Allie Brosh was publishing a book-I absolutely loved her blog so I should definitely check this one out! :)
    I haven't read Parasite but I did enjoy Mira Grant's Feed-Hope you enjoy it! :)

    Great job with the discussion post by the way and Happy Reading!

  11. Oh! So jealous of Sorrow's Knot! Been looking at that one for ages! I've read Antigoddess and enjoyed it as much as the Anna series. Enjoy!

  12. Antigoddess, Antigoddess, Antigoddess! Want it, too and so badly!!! Let me know how it was once you've read it!!! (because I really don't like mythology very much, but everyone does love Kendare Blake so I'm confused...) :) I hope you have an UH-mazing sunday!

  13. Hyperbole and a Half! I love checking out her website haha. Oh, Parasite looks awesome. And Antigoddess! I need to get my hands on that soon! Hope you're enjoying your new books!

    Bookmunchies' Sunday Post & STS (:

  14. I feel like a failure for not having heard of that Sense & Sensibility! I am off to find it now because Jane Austen is my hero. :) And one day I'm going to get to Parasite, I will. Happy reading!!

    My STS!

  15. I really need to read Antigoddess!! I reviewed Sorrow's Knot this past week---really enjoyed it! It's very different from anything out there! Enjoy!

  16. I have been meaning to read Antigoddess for so long now! Some really great books this week. Enjoy all of your reads. My STS

  17. I just got Antigodess from the local library too-so excited for that one! I haven't seen Parasite yet, but it sounds sounds really creepy and fun to me. Can't wait to see what you think of Antigoddess. :)

  18. I haven't seen many of these before, but the Antigoddess looks good! Not sure if I could ever read Parasite. Might be too weird for me haha =)

  19. I've only read Feed by Mira Grant, but it was REALLY good. I still need to finish that series and then get to my copy of Parasite. I hope you love Antigoddess. I loved Kendare's take on gods and goddesses. :)

  20. Antigoddess, The Eye Of Minds, and Parasite are all so amazing!

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!
