Stacking The Shelves (8)

"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 got some really amazing books this week.

Barnes & Noble


I got...
The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter.
I have been wanting to get this book for a long time, but every time I went to the book store I always saw I another book I wanted more, so I never got this one. So, I finally just went to the book store and looked at nothing else and got this book.
Uglies by Scott Westerfeld.
I have heard so many good things about this book and I never really looked up what this book is about. I was out of books one day and I remembered this one. So, I went on the Barnes & Noble website and searched what it was about. When I read what it was about, it sounded interesting. The next time I want to the book store I decided to get this book. 



They came!!!! They came!!! Finally after two and a half weeks of waiting they are here. YAH!!!!!!!!!!! Okay, a little background story before I tell you what I got.
   I ordered these books in the second week of August and after about a week and a half of waiting for my books, I looked on Amazon and saw that my books didn't even ship yet. 0_0. What??? So, I wait and wait and wait and they still don't ship. So, finally last Wednesday they shipped and would you like to know when they got here????? They got here the next day, Thursday. So, I am mad that Amazon made me wait to read my books.

Anyway, I got...
Onyx (Lux #2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout.
This is the second book in the Lux  series. I have read and loved the first book in this series, Obsidian. So, I cannot wait to read this book. I am hoping it is as good as Obsidian.
Glow by Amy Kathleen Ryan.
This is the first book in the Sky Chasers series. I have heard so many good things about this book. Even though I am not big on Si-Fi, one of my favorite reviewers did a review on this book and said she loved it. So, I am going to read it and hope I love it to.


The Library


I got...
 Working Stiff  by Rachel Caine. 

Heist Society by Ally Carter.

That is all I got this week.
