Stacking the Shelves #9


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.

Guess what? TIME'S UP! For this week, I have an itty bitty haul.  Don't despair - tiny and small can be a good thing!


See??!

I have something new, something old, something borrowed, and I suppose something blue in my shelf this week.


Books:

(Sorry for the poor quality - I'm out of light bulbs)


Top to Bottom:

Ingo by Helen Dunmore - My something blue! This book had me waffling for the past four weeks.  I'm always up to being tricked by a mermaid book.

The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness - This is my something old. My Reddit Gift friend sent this to me.  I have read this book, but she did a good job picking out something original. Lucky for me, my sister and I are going to trade books.  

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn - Something borrowed.  A co-worker read this one for a book club, and she left it in the break room to trade.  When she saw me reading over the cover she insisted that I should give it a shot, since I am "the reading girl"

Kindle
(All something new!)

Midwinterblood by Marcus Sedgwick - "An archaeologist who unearths a mysterious artifact, an airman who finds himself far from home, a painter, a ghost, a vampire, and a Viking: the seven stories in this compelling novel all take place on the remote Scandinavian island of Blessed where a curiously powerful plant that resembles a dragon grows. " <--- HELL YES, PLEASE.

Soulbound by Tessa Adams - "While she hasn’t lived up to her family’s expectations, Xandra has come to terms with her latent magic and made a life for herself in Austin, Texas, running a coffee shop where she makes potions of a non-magical nature. " <--- HELL YES, PLEASE.

The Summer of Moonlight Secrets by Danette Haworth - Blame Kara.  I peeked in on her STS and bought it right away when I ran across this one.

  1. Midwinterblood is so good, Lyn, and I think you will fall in love with it. As I read it, I kept thinking it was definitely a Lyn type of book.

  8. You know it's catnip to me when you feature a book I love, right? :D I am so excited to see what you think of MIDWINTERBLOOD! I will try to contain my tears if you hate it.

    I need to get off my butt and read Chaos Walking sometime, too. I keep starting it but for some reason have never gotten very far. Happy reading, Lyn!

    1. I know! I lure you over here so that I look awesome when Wendy posts on my blog. Midwinterblood is the hot one this week, girl. I'm trying to clear off everything to get to this one.

      Do you need a copy of Chaos Walking?
