Stacking the Shelves (55)

"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.

It was a good week. I only bought three books this week, which is now my new buying ban theme. Than I went to the thrift store by me and got Rot and Ruin for only 2 dollars. And of course I had to go to the library and I think I got some good books there. 

Rot and Ruin by Johnathan Maberry
I've been on the fence on whether or not to buy it, because I don't really like zombie books. But when I saw it for just two dollars and in faily good condition (except someone wrote on the book, which you don't do!). So, I had to get it.

The Crown of Embers by Rae Carson
I've been searching for this since I read The Girl of Fire and Thorns and I couldn't eve find it, not in any format. And I was so glad when I finally found it!! And it was just released in paperback, so it matches my copy of TGFT.

Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas
I got it!!!!!! I can't wait to read it!!!!

The Way of The Shadows by Brent Weeks
If you noticed I've been getting this book a lot from the library. It's not because I keep rereading it over and over, but because I haven't been reading it. I keep getting it from the library and I put it somewhere and not pick it up until I have to bring it back. So, I keep checking it out in hopes that I will finally read it, because it looks like a really great book!

The Raven Queen by Jules Watson
I know nothing about this book besides that it looks good.

The Sin Eater's Confession by Isla J. Bick
Ditto to the Raven Queen.

That's what I got this week, what did you get?
Happy reading

    I love zombie books and have been meaning to read Rot and Ruin forever.
    I've heard great things about the series by Rae Carson. Happy reading and thanks for stopping by!

  6. Nice haul! I enjoyed Crown of Midnight. I have Crown of Embers on my TBR mountain but no time to read from that stack. Come see what I got at Ms. Martin Teaches Media and Inside of a Dog. Happy reading!

  7. I've heard a lot of good things about Rot and Ruin, but I haven't read it yet since I'm not the biggest fan of zombies either. I hope it's up your alley :)

  11. Almost half way through Crown of Midnight and I'm getting annoyed at The MC. But other than that it's amazing!!

  12. Rot and Ruin just looks so good!!!!
    I love Rae Carson as an writer!

  13. You need to read Throne of Glass as soon as you can. It's an amazing book!!!
    Thanks for following :D

  14. That's my whole problem with Rot and Ruin, I want to read it and than.....I don't. I have no idea why that happens.

  15. See the thing is I don't often like Zombie books. Although I'm hoping Rot And Ruin is the exception from that, because I've heard so much praise for it.

  16. Crown of Embers is my next read and I can't wait!!!
    And i'm enjoying Crown of Midnight so far :D

  17. Thank you :D. And I really hope I like.

  18. It's just an awesome book!!!!

  19. It's Just so good of a book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love it!!!! *Squeals again* I love it!!
    Thanks Kelly :D

  20. Crown of Midnight it just so good!!!
    I think the problem with the Brent Weeks books is that they are just so intimating. Not much is said in the summary so I know I'm going to be confused for parts of it.
