Stacking the Shelves (35)

"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.

For the last few weeks I have been good at my book buying ban and then a library book sale happened and I bought a lot of books for under 10$. So I thought "hey I can go afford to the book store to buy one book" and I found that Barnes & Noble had a book that I didn't think released until next week. After buying a little bit more books then one I admitted to myself that I broke my ban.So, I went to the library!! What I am trying is I have a lot of books in this haul, but to my defense I got all these books in a two week period. 


I got..

Ash by Malinda Lo.
I haven't heard much things about this one, but it has a cool summary and cover.

Court Duel by Sherwood Smith.
I have read this one a while ago and never reviewed. And I have been wanting to re-read it for a while.

Lucid by Adrienne Stoltz & Ron Bass.
This looks like such a great book!! I have heard some great things about it. So, hopefully I'll like it .

New Girl by Paige Harbison.
Never heard of this one, but it looks good.

Starling Lesley Livingston.
I loved Livingston's Wondrous Strange series and I think this one ties in some of the things from that series. So, I really can't wait to read this one!!

Barnes & Noble

I got....

Apollyon by Jennifer L. Armentrout.
Read and loved this one!!! And this one wasn't suppose to release next week and when I saw it on the shelves I thought it was a joke. After my initial  shock I grabbed it off the self and almost screamed with excitement. Review will be posted 5/8/13

With All my Soul by Rachel Vincent.
This is the last in the Soul Screamers series and I am both sad and excited to read it.

Immortal Rules by Julia Kagawa.
I love the whole book design for the paperback, it's just so beautiful. And of course I really want to read it.

Agnes Gray by Anne Bronte.
I have wanted to have a Anne Bronte book and when I saw this on the shevles I got it.

Library book sale.

The YA books I got..

White is for Magic by Laurie Faria Stolarz.
I didn't know until now that this is a sequel to a book.

  5. Wow! You have got an amazing collection there. I nearly borrowed Lucid myself but then got distracted by other books.
    Have yet to start The Convenant series. Trying to catch up on some other reads first.
