Stacking the Shelves August 30th, 2014





Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews. It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected.  I didn't get my post up last weekend, so this post will include two weeks worth of books.


Trades from YA Book Exchange:









So it was a good couple of weeks, for the most part, with trades from the YA Book Exchange. There are some awesome traders out there.  And as for any other issues, we'll not discuss them, as I've had a 99.9% great experience with the website.   Very excited about two of the books as they were ones I'd hoped to get when I went to BEA but wasn't able to.

Free e-books from Amazon:










Quite a few this time! These lists people share are dangerous!  But I guess I'll never run out of things to read.  As if that was ever going to be a problem.  

99 cent book from Amazon:


And that's about it for me!  But September will be a big month!  My September is for Sequels Challenge will start this week, and you can go sign up by clicking on the link below.

  6. I really enjoyed The Young World, the first few chapters were a little touch and go for me, and took me a while to get used to one of the perspectives, since whoa, holy personality. But other than that, it was good. :) Happy reading!

    Here's mine

  14. Those are some awesome trades, Lisa! For Darkness Shows the Stars was a favorite read. I'll be reading Boundless for your series challenge. I've had that book since it's release, but I really loved the series and sometimes I hold onto those last books. :) Thanks for stopping by!

  18. You did get some great books from YA book exchange. I have only tried it once years ago and I got burned so I have been hesitant to go back and try it again.

    Happy 5th blogoversary!

    1. I have had one or two issues, but I don't feel like one was the person's fault. I had several packages that didn't make it to my house about the same time, so I'm guessing what they sent me disappeared into that same place. Thanks for stopping by!

  19. You have some very good looking books. I hope you enjoy reading them all!
