Stacking the Shelves #4



Welcome to Stacking the Shelves. Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga at Tynga's Reviews. This is where we showcase books we have received or bought during the week.



This week, I have books that I found on clearance, visited an old bookstore that I love, and found a stash of books that I had lost in the closet (I have NO idea how they got in the closet).  I bought four new books for the Kindle, and I have one new ARC courtesy of Netgalley.

Books

Top to Bottom –

The Thirteenth Princess by Diane Zahler – I have wanted this one for a while, and I found it on clearance. Lucky me!

Angel Burn by L.A. Weatherly– This is the one I lost. I’m a bit skeptical, but I would be lying if I said I wasn’t interested in the storyline.

Learn Me Good by John Pearson– A gift.  I think it sounds very cute! 

The Gathering Storm by Robin Bridges – Found at the bookstore that I love.  I hope that I enjoy it at some degree.  Call me curious, but I think I will give it a shot, despite the feedback.

Pure – Also located at my favorite bookstore.  I have Fuse, so I thought it would only be fair to read the first book.


Kindle

Jinx by Sage Blackwood – I have wanted this for a long, long time.

Nimbus by B.J. Keeton and Austin King– I found the author very interesting, and his book sounds great to boot.

Stray by Andrea Höst – I bought it after reading And All the Stars (Which I will post a review for in the future).

The Truth AboutLilly Barnes by Kimberly Russell – 99 cent find.

  1. I want Jinx too. Really bad! I wonder if they have a Kindle lending option for that one, hmmmm?

    I hope you enjoy Pure, I am starting Fuse right about...NOW.

  2. You got a great collection of books. The only one I have read so far is Angel Burn which I did enjoy. Dance of Shadows is on my review stack too. Cover lust! Isn't it a great thing?

    You can check out my new books posts at Ms. Martin Teaches Media and Inside of a Dog. Happy reading!

    1. Thank you, Kathy! I'll have to pop by and pay you a visit!

      Angel Burn looks like it might be at least fun to read.

  3. A great collection of books there. Dance of Shadows has such a beautiful cover. I'm tempted to put it on my TBR list..

    1. The reviews are so-so, but I just can't help falling for that cover.

  4. I think the cover for The Gathering Storm is so gorgeous -- I think I'd buy that book for the cover alone! I received an unsolicited copy of Pure a LONG while back -- I should read it one of these days. It sounds super good!

    1. The Gathering Storm cover caught my interest when I added it to Amazon. I hope that it is a good one!

  5. I was not a huge fan of Angel Burn, it just seemed to go on forever and ever and ever. I hope you like it much more than I did.

    Pure was awesome because it's different and literary and has some gross imagery. Still awesome.

    I also really liked The Gathering Storm, but I have a bizarre Russia fetish.

    1. I am interested in The Gathering Storm and the Russian connection. I really hope it is a fun read!

      A lot of people liked Pure - I have high hopes.

  6. Very pretty haul indeed. I didn't care for Angel Burn. Stray looks very pretty indeed. Come visit me as well.

  7. Pure is awesome! I can't wait to read Fuse. :)
    I read The Gathering Storm and wasn't personally a big fan of it. I love Russian stories and such, too, but I don't know what it was with that one on why I just couldn't really connect. *shrugs* Maybe bad timing. Haha. Angel Burn has been on my TBR for quite some time, but I haven't bought it or anything yet. Nice cover, though. It does look and sound interesting so I'm sure I'll eventually pick that one up out of curiosity. :)

    1. Hey Pixie!

      I need to see if I can read Pure soon - a lot of people have been talking about it on this thread today.

      As for The Gathering Storm, I have seen my friends rating split in half over this book. So I am unsure what to expect.

  8. Yay! I'm so excited to see that you picked up Stray--I'll hopefully be reading it sometime soon as well. =)

    1. It looks so good! And after reading And All the Stars, I have to admit this author has me curious.

  9. I've heard some really, really good things about Pure (maybe from Kara? I can't remember exactly who.) I'm on the waiting list at the library for it, but I'm something like number 43 out of 43. So it could be a while.

    Good luck with Dance of Shadows. After reading the reviews coming in for it, I'm glad I got denied! I do look forward to reading all your status updates and review, though :)

    1. Dance of Shadows isn't looking that good.....I'm a little sad.

      Kara did love Pure, and quite a few people have said that they loved it.
