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