Stacking The Shelves (9)

Tuesday, 12 March 2013

STSmall_thumb[2]Stacking the Shelves is hosted over at Tynga's Reviews. I went kinda mad on Amazon the other day and, although I still haven't got my hands on Clockwork Princess, I did get a few that I have been eagerly awaiting!

All covers link to Goodreads.

Bought:

Graceling (Graceling Realm, #1)The Evolution of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer, #2)

At the risk of many disproving looks that I thankfully cannot see, I confess that I bought Graceling purely based on the cover without any idea of what it was about. Can you blame me? She looks like some kind of ninja assassin which is, of course, immensely badass!

The Evolution Of Mara Dyer, on the other hand was bought because the previous book was absolutely amazing. So amazing in fact that I couldn't wait long enough for the price of it to go down and I bought it at (gasp!) full price which is a rarity for me.

Hereafter (Hereafter, #1)Prodigy (Legend, #2)

Hereafter is another book which I didn't bother to read the blurb of. I'd heard good things and apparently at the time I thought that was a good enough reason to buy it. Although I doubt my reasoning for getting it, I was incredibly glad when I found out it was a ghost book. YA doesn't have enough of those and if it's anything like Anna Dressed In Blood I will love it.

Prodigy I bought for obvious reasons. Though it just occurred to me they wont be obvious to you since I haven't got around to posting the review of Legend as of yet. To be clearer, I bought Prodigy because Legend was breathtaking and I needed the next one.

The Indigo Spell (Bloodlines, #3)Until I Die (Revenants, #2)

My reason for buying The Indigo Spell WILL be obvious this time if you have ever read anything on this blog. Third in the Bloodlines series it has been eagerly awaited by me and not just because I need my Ivashkov fix. If the Indigo Spell is half as good as The Golden Lily then I will be ecstatic!

Until I Die is the sequel to Die For Me which I actually have reviewed. As Die For Me managed to break most YA stereotypes out there I hope for similar things from this one.

Endlessly (Paranormalcy, #3)Unravel Me (Shatter Me, #2)

After loving Paranormalacy and not loving Supernaturally I was really torn whether I should buy Endlessly. In the end I decided, in respect to the impressive first book, I would give this one the benefit of the doubt. Hopefully it will not be in vain.

Unravel Me was a must buy from the moment it came out and actually one of the only books I've bought within a month of it's release date - they are just so expensive! I couldn't help myself. Shatter Me was outstanding so I am desperately praying my expectations do not fall short in this one.

Library:

Emma

After giving up Anna Karenina as my March classic because of irritating font in the book (yes that is a good enough reason for not reading it) I picked Emma up from the library instead. I have already read it and was presently surprised and, frankly, astounded that Pride and Prejudice is generally considered Austen's best work. No, Emma is the best by far.

What books have you got for me to be jealous of? If anyone says Clockwork Princess I may cry!

I loved Graceling. That realm is way cool, Fire was good too. I just got Etiquette & Espionage and Touch of Frost from amazon yesterday. E&E is super fun so far :)
I still need to read Emma! Since I really need to delve into some classics, maybe that will be the one.

I really want to read a lot of these. I have an ARC copy of The Elite by Kiera Cass. I'm pretty proud of that. :)
