Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature hosted by Tyngas Reviews. This meme allows us to share the books we’ve recently added to our shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks! *Clicking the link of a book’s title will take you to Goodreads.
I’m sorry for the lack of posts save for the couple of memes I’ve been able to keep up with. Student teaching is awesome, but it is also kicking my ass. I’m trying to read on my short lunch break and before I pass out at night, but I’m not getting through as many books as I’d like (and I still have so many good choices that I’m in the middle of at least 10 books right now). I did finish Fangirl a couple of nights ago and have the best of intentions on writing a review this weekend. I’m also almost done with Tom Perrotta’s new short story collection, Nine Inches, and will hopefully have a review up for it as well. This week I got a ton of books I’m excited for that I’m hoping I’ll able to get to. I need to put myself on a NG/EW diet, but I just get so pulled in by all those pretty covers. I hope everyone is doing well and having a great weekend!
Goodbye, Rebel Blue by Shelley Coriell
Rebecca Blue, known as Rebel, decides to finish a dying girl’s bucket list and it changes her life. I’m really excited to read this one. It sounds so bittersweet.
Made of Stars by Kelley York
A YA mystery about a brother and sister trying to clear their friend’s name when he is accused of his mom’s murder. I love this pretty cover.
Man Made Boy by Jon Skovron
The son of Frankenstein and his bride goes on a road trip with Jekyll and Hyde’s granddaughters. I mean, for real, is that not the best synopsis ever?
How to Love by Katie Cotugno
Two teens fall in love. She gets pregnant; he moves away. Three years later he comes back and they begin to fall in love again. Very interested in how this is handled.
Unbreakable by Kami Garcia
I have to admit that I couldn’t get into Beautiful Creatures. I tried…3 times, but I’m still intrigued by this book about a girl who finds out after her mother’s death that she had been a part of a secret society protecting the world from a demon.
Hereafter by Kate Brian
The sequel to Shadowlands…which I need to read next. I adore the covers for this series.
Blackout by Robison Wells
Two teens lives get tangled with the lives of two terrorists.
Eat, Brains, Love by Jeff Hart
Two teenage zombie search for love. I have to admit that I find love stories between zombies a little off-putting, but this does look funny.
Six Months Later by Natalie Richards
A girl falls asleep in study hall and wakes up six months later with no recollection of what has happened over those months.
Constable and Toop by Gareth P. Jones
A boy who lives in a funeral parlor is haunted by the people his father buries.
Losing It by various authors
A collection of short stories about losing the big V.
I won the Clear Your Shelf Giveaway over at I Heart Y.A. Fiction run by the lovely Sabrina. I love her blog. If you’ve never visited her before–you should remedy that. Thanks, Sabrina!
What I snagged from the library
Nine Inches by Tom Perrotta
This brilliant author is one of my all-time favorites. I’m loving this collection of short stories.
