Stacking the shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews. It's basically a way in which we get to show off the lovely new goodies we got over the past week/month however you decide to do it.
This one is going to be more like a post from the past month. Somebody got her box from Book Outlet this past week...Black Friday was a bad, bad day for my self imposed book buying ban, but thankfully I was given an early birthday present in the form of a gift card. Honestly a couple of these I have no idea they were just cheap and sounded okay. I have no self control people! On with the show!
For Review/Blog Tour:
Crush (Bayonet Scars #4) by J.C. Emery
Got this one from InkSlinger PR for a blog tour which already happened. I loved it of course because I'm obsessed with this series!! Even though it's literally just right there *points to the side of my blog* I'm feeling too lazy to link my review but if you'd like to check it out it's right there towards the top! :)
Paper or Plastic by Vivi Barnes
Entangled Publishing. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. Let's just say every other dollar you make off of a book is probably from me. You're welcome ;) Anyway, thanks go obviously to Entangled for this review ARC!
Rusty Nailed (Cocktail #2) by Alice Clayton
Love, in Spanish (Love, in English #2) by Karina Halle
2 or 3 weeks back I was talking books with the most lovely Jessica from Lovin' los libros and these two series came up and I said that after Christmas I was going to buy them since I was forcing myself on a buying ban until at least then. Well sneaky lady went and sent them to me as an early Christmas present. I heart you very much girl and again thank you...thank you...THANK YOU!!! :) Siiiigh more Mateo....
Sigh. The Christmas tree is blocking the spot where I normally snap pics of my new lovelies so I had to settle with the desk. Ignore the penguin. He's not new he just wanted to be part of it. (I'm so weird...)
Wicked (A Wicked Saga #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Obviously not part of my Book Outlet haul :P If it's JLA I auto-buy it!
The Liberator (Dante Walker #2) by Victoria Scott
The Warrior (Dante Walker #3) by Victoria Scott
It's shameful that I do not own these. Just shameful. *Avoids looking everyone in the eye*
Lirael (Abhorsen #2) by Garth Nix
Already have the first book and it's sort of one of those things where you just know you're going to like it so why not start getting the rest??
Defiance (Defiance #1) by C.J. Redwine
City of a Thousand Dolls (Bhinian Empire #1) by Miriam Forster
I've mentioned wanting to read book 2 before and they can be read separately but quite a few people have told me that this first one is really good too and I should give it a read. Bumping it up towards the top of my TBR rotation for sure!
If We Kiss (If We Kiss #1) by Rachel Vail
So I've started this one a little bit and I'm still kind of iffy about it. I didn't really pay attention to the fact that the characters are fourteen. Frankly fourteen year olds can be annoying haha. I'm sorry but it's true! It may have been over 20 years ago when I was fourteen myself but I still remember how annoying I was about boys and obsessions over first kisses and such. And this is kinda how Charlie and her friends are with the we-kissed-so-obviously-we're-in-love thing. I mean it's not terrible. It's actually cracked me up quite a bit! I guess I just prefer my YA to be more 16, 17, 18. Right, Sheri, as if it makes that much of a difference. Basically I'm still on the fence but it's cute enough to keep me going!
Beastly (Beastly #1) by Alex Flinn
Bewitching: The Kendra Chronicles by Alex Flinn
Cloaked by Alex Flinn
Towering by Alex Flinn
Before anybody says anything at all...yes. I do realize that the bulk of these books are hugely unpopular and not very well liked. However, it's not like I spent tons of money on them, two of them were scratch and dent even, and if I didn't at least try them...I would always wonder. I freaking love, love, love fairytale retellings. There have been plenty of times where I hated something everyone else loved and loved something everyone else hated. It just has to be done. Y'all can tell me you told me so later and kick me when I'm down if it turns out I don't like them either haha.
The Almost Truth by Eileen Cook
The Practice Proposal (Suddenly Smitten #1) by Tracy March
An Officer and a Rebel (Accidentally in Love #2.5) by Cindi Madsen
I love, love, love Cindi Madsen's writing and I'm excited to dive into this series!
Her Summer with the Marine (The Donovan Brothers #1) by Susan Meier
I got a review copy of book two last month at one point I think and I really liked it. So I'm going a bit out of order but I'm looking forward to this first book!
Luck of the Dragon (Las Vegas Dragons #1) by Susannah Scott
Reforming the Cowboy: A South Beach Book by Marisa Cleveland
Something Wild (Reckless and Real #0.5) by Lexi Ryan
I read an excerpt from this novella the other day and now I'm dying to go on and know what happens!
The Billionaire Wins the Game (Billionaire Bachelors #1) by Melody Anne
Melody Anne was a part of an anthology I recently read and since I hadn't ever read anything by her before, and I liked her novella from the anthology well enough, I figured I'd give a full length novel a try. I'm generally weary when it comes to the whole billionaire-in-the-title thing but it was a freebie so really there's nothing to lose.
So there may be a lot here but like I said it's from the end of November up until now. I'm doing a pretty good job of being good! I mean a big chunk of that Book Outlet box was couponed! Hopefully I can keep it up *fingers crossed* Anyway, I've babbled enough through this post. So what books have you gotten recently? Leave me a link to your post :)
