Stacking the Shelves 12-2-12

Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your 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! Hosted by Tygna's Reviews.

It's been a while since I've done one of these, I know. Here's what I got recently!

I bought them all at Changing Hands Bookstore except the two ARCs: When We Wake (bought), and Crash from Simon and Schuster. (Thanks!!!)

Why buy the rest?
   So I met Becca, but no, I haven't read anything by her before. Why did I buy hush, hush and crescendo? I couldn't help it, of course. I have no will power in a bookstore. 
   Julie Kagawa's books I've read? The Iron King (review here) and The Immortal Rules (review here), so, ya know I gotta buy the rest of the series. Someone had just turned them ALL in used at the store! Wait for it...couldn't help it.          
   Jellicoe Road I've heard is amazing, and I liked Marchetta's Finnikin of the Rock a LOT (review here) and also I saw it being read on my favorite Aussie show, Dance Academy. Then I found out Melinda Marchetta actually writes episodes to that show. I just had to buy the book. 

Thoughts? What new books did you get recently?



  1. I have yet to meet an author in person...:( . But I'm keeping an eye out for book signings in my neck of the woods online. I also hope to attend the next book expo. I loved the Wake trilogy by Lisa McMann. I'll have to check out Crash also. Hush, Hush was also a favorite. I hope you enjoy all your loot. I have yet to check out the Iron series and the two other titles are new to me. Anywho, happy reading!

  2. I'm looking forward to When We Wake! Hope you enjoy!
