Stacking the Shelves (38)



"Stacking the Shelves" is a weekly theme hosted by Tynga's reviews . Feel free to join in if you want. In this theme I showcase all the books I got this week.

I had a really good book week. The box of books I ordered form amazon came this week!! I am really excited for all of them! I also got in the mail a book I won, I am really excited to read that one!




~Won~

Insomnia by J.R Johansson
I won this in a giveaway on the author's blog (HERE). And I am so excited to read this!!! It looks so good! This one comes out June 13.

~Amazon~

Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac by Gabrielle Zevin.
I've heard some really great things about this one and I was going to buy it last week, but decided not to. When I went on amazon to order a few things this one was in their Bargain Books for 3.60. That defiantly beats 10 bucks at Barnes & Noble. So, I started this one already and it was good until I started hating the main character. I can't stand this girl.

The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy.
I read and reviewed this already (review HERE) I loved this book. So, I wanted my own copy and you never know with online shopping whether or not your going to like the copy and I really like this copy. So, I'm happy about that.

This Side of Paradise by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
I bought this one and the last two, because I just read the Great Gatsby (Review) and loved his writing. So, I wanted to read some more of his books. So, I got them.

Tales from the Jazz Age by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
This is just a few of his short stories and I got this mainly, because it has The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. I watched this movie and Loved it, I also cried about ten times. I never knew this was a book (well short story) I really want to read this story. I also like this copy, but the text has the font of a type writer. Which I am wary about, because I can read it, but it would take me a while to get used to it.

The Beautiful and the Damned by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
This one just looks good. Thats all I really have to say.


That's all the books I got this week, what did you get?
Happy reading.

    1. I can't wait to watch the movie, but I have a feeling it won't match the book much.

    1. Its fine. Most of these don't really have hype surrounding them. Which is sad because Insomnia should have more hype.
