Stacking the Shelves - June 9, 2013

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.   I'm going to try really hard to keep up with this every week this summer.  Which also means I have to make sure I keep track of the egalleys and such as I get them!  This week I've got 6 books to talk about.
E-Galley from Edelweiss:


I loved the first book in this series, and had actually thought it was only going to be a trilogy.  I guess if I was caught up on the series I would have known that!  Now that I've got until August 2nd before this expires, I'll have to check out #2 and 3 in the series so I can read it!

Book from YA Book Exchange:

I read the first book in this series, Abandon, a long time ago!  And then of course I didn't get the 2nd one for awhile.  I traded with someone on the YA Book Exchange for it, not realizing they were an international trader until I'd already decided to do the deal.  It took 2 months for me to get this book, just finally got it this week.  So, I probably won't do anymore international trading on that website, but I am glad I got this, because of one of the e-galleys I got from Netgalley below is the book after this one in the series!

E-Galleys from Netgalley:




As you can see I now have the 3rd book in the Abandon series by Meg Cabot as an e-galley, and it expires on July 31st, so I have to get going!  I also got the sequel to a favorite book, Transcendence, that I was able to finally get a copy and meet the author at RT Convention in May, it's called Intuition, and I'm actually reading it as I am posting this post.  

E-galley from an author for review:

I really enjoyed being a part of the Stitch tour last fall, and loved the book.  So of course I signed on to be a part of the tour for its sequel, Shudder.  Partly because I get a free copy of the book to read again!  But don't forget you can get a free copy of the first book in the series using the links in my last post HERE.

Books I purchased:  

I also purchased a book titled:  Hounded:  The Lowdown on Life from Three Dachshunds by Matt Ziselman.  And I'd love to share the cover with you, because it is so cute!  But no matter where I download the cover from, Blogger is saying it is not a picture or video.  So I've linked the title for you.  It is one that I think Mary from Bookhounds would probably enjoy as well!  My "books I've purchased section needs to be zero as much as possible because I am broke!  But I couldn't resist because I'd ordered this into my bookstore specially, and it arrived just in time for our employee appreciation days when we got 40% off books!

So, what books did you add to your shelves this past week?

  2. I love Meg Cabot, but this isn't my favorite series of hers. I set Underworld aside about half way in, but do plan on finishing it and the third when it's released. I'll have to read Transcendence. It sounds interesting. Great haul! Happy reading!

    1. You definitely should! It's not exactly what it seems, so keeps you guessing.

  8. Seriously, the amount of shiny books on Edelweiss and NetGalley lately is just amazing! I really need to start one of Amanda Hocking's series, I've heard great things about them! And I really need to read Abandon! That series sounds so awesome!
    Happy reading!

    1. I was really disappointed for a couple that I didn't get approved for from Edelweiss. I tried emailing the publisher, but haven't heard back. They said it was because they'd given out the quota of e-galleys they could give, but that sounds like a line to me.

    1. The first book was pretty good, and I like the author, so you should give it a try if you have time.

    1. I enjoyed the series, and I'm not normally a Meg Cabot YA fan, I've only read her adult books other than this series.

  12. I haven't read Underworld yet, but I loved Abandon. Meg Cabot is one of my favorite authors. I still need to read the first book by Tara.

    Thanks for stopping by!

    1. The Elegy I have posted isn't in the series by Tara Hudson, it is in a series by Amanda Hocking, which confused me a bit at first. I just got the Tara Hudson series book first in the series a month ago. I need to get on reading that!
