Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and is about sharing the books that you have added to your shelves in the past week. The books can be physical, digital, borrowed, won, sent for review, or anything else.
The Throne of Glass Series by Sarah J. Mass – Yes, I finally did it. I jumped on the THRONE OF GLASS bandwagon. I have no regrets. Though I was only moderately in love with Sarah J. Mass’ A Court of Thorns and Roses last year (the first half dragged for me, but I loved the second half), I gave into the bookstagram pressure and purchased this entire series on a whim. Now, as I delve into book two, Crown of Midnight, I’m already feeling like a superfan. These are really great books. I finally get all the Sarah J. Mass hype! Yay!
Dash and Lilly’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan – I read this book last winter and thought it was adorable and a great Christmas season read. Then I realized I might be able to get a signed ARC of the sequel at BEA this year, so I thought I should own a hardcopy of this one too, so my set matches (I only have the ebook). It’s a very cute contemporary!
Sent for Review
100 Days of Cake by Sharie Goldhagen – This book looks strange, which attracted me immediately. We’ll have to wait and see if it’s as weirdly delicious as it looks.
Wild Swans by Jessica Spotswood – So, if you didn’t know, I LOVED LOVED LOVED A Tyranny of Petticoats, which was edited by Jessica, and I thought her short story was amazing in it, so when I saw this little baby on Netgalley, I had to have it. I’m looking forward to beginning a wonderful love affair with Jessica Spotswood’s books from here on out.
All We Have Left by Wendy Mills – I can’t believe that we are now entering an era of historical and speculative fiction centered around 9/11. That makes me feel old. It also makes me hopeful – if authors can accurately portray this tragedy in a way that helps readers better connect to each other, I think this could be a very very good thing for literature. This book looks beautiful (and not just on the cover), and I am looking forward to seeing if it lives up to its premise and does justice to the subject matter.
What did y’all acquire this week! Leave me comments and be sure to follow if you want more bookish awesomeness!
