Stacking the Shelves - July 21st, 2013


Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.  It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected. This week I hit the jackpot on Edelweiss and Netgalley, but only got one physical book.  Let's start with the huge haul I got from Edelweiss:

E-galleys from Edelweiss:












First is Uninvited by Sophie Jordan, the first in a new series that is described as The Scarlet Letter meets The Minority Report.  Sounds intriguing!  Next is House of Ivy and Sorrow by Natalie Whipple.  Haven't read anything by this author before, but it sounds interesting!  Now the 3rd book I was so excited when I found it, In the Age of Love and Chocolate by Gabrielle Zevin.  I love, love, LOVE this series so far.  So much that, since my first two books were ARCs, I emailed the publisher and asked if I could get an ARC for the 3rd and final book so that I would have a matching set.  Unfortunately the publisher emailed me back and said they wouldn't be making physical ARCs.  So, I was extremely pleased to see it available as an e-galley, although I will have to go out and buy a copy when it is published, because I do love the series, here are links to my reviews of book 1 and book 2.  The next book you see is Resistance by Jenna Black, which is the sequel to Replica.  As I know I've mentioned before.  I always hate when I've read the first book in a series early as either an e-galley or an ARC, but then have to wait for the next book to actually be published. Because there are so many new books I get as e-galleys that expire, I often then end up not getting around to the 2nd and 3rd books until I make myself go buy them, which isn't often that I have the money to do that. So, as a librarian, I've had to remind myself, that I can check them out, I don't have to own them all.  And the last book I got from Edelweiss this week is Expiration Day by William Campbell Powell.  This is a bit of a dystopian/futuristic science fiction story.  

E-galleys from Netgalley:





The first book, The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater, is the sequel to The Dream Thieves.  This is the book that made me soooooo sad I wasn't able to make it to BEA this past summer.  I entered so many giveaways for this book from people who did get to go, but sadly didn't win.  So, I was so excited to see this available.  Of course, like the one I mentioned above, I will have to buy a copy of this once it is published as well.  The 2nd book here is All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill, which I've been seeing a ton about it on other blogs.  In fact, when I first requested it, I actually requested the Australian version I think, so I was denied, but only because it was for people in Australia.  I did some more searching on Netgalley and found the American version and again requested, this time getting approved.

Actual physical book:


This is a book I was lucky enough to win from this summer's Armchair BEA.  Can't wait to read R.L. Stine's re-imagining of a Shakespeare classic.  

Not too bad of  a haul.  Can't wait to dig into these book!  How about you? What books did you add to your shelves this week?

    1. I didn't read a lot of the Goosebumps, they were kind of "after" my time. But I know everyone loved them, so I want to give them a chance. Thanks for stopping by!

    2. @Lisa: I never cared much for the "Goosebumps" books, but I always loved Stine's "Fear Street" series and all the spin-offs he created of it. He's a great author.

  9. That's kind of disappointing about no physical ARCs for the IN THE AGE OF LOVE AND CHOCOLATE book! I haven't heard of the series before but you've got me intrigued! I'll have to go scope them out on Goodreads. I just love the cover of HOUSE OF IVY & SORROW! I haven't read anything by her either but it sounds interesting. I haven't heard of EXPIRATION DAY either but I'm a huge fan of dystopian/sci-fi books. Yay for ALL OUR YESTERDAYS! I have the ARC but have been forcing myself to wait until closer to the release day before I read and review it. The struggle is real.

    Thanks for stopping by my STS post the other day! I'm a new follower on Bloglovin' :)

    1. I loved the series, and if you read my reviews of them, you'll see just how much! I try to wait till closer to release dates now because I have so many other things to read, at least that way I can try to get them all in! Thanks for returning the favor!
