Stacking the Shelves (6/22/13)

Time for another Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews, where I share the books that I've added to my shelves this week.


*Epic Librarian (as she will now be known) is a local teen librarian who gives me the ARCs she has no time to read. I happily give them homes (either my own or others) and she gets the footspace under her desk back for periods of time, so we both win! :)

There are too many books to list here, but the ones I was immediately excited about were:
  • Premeditated by Josin McQuein - I normally avoid mysteries, but I loved Josin's Arclight so I'm actually excited for this one! It is on top of my TBR list.
  • Altered by Jennifer Rush - I hadn't given this a glance before, but holy heck this sounds like an epic book! Cannot wait to devour it.
  • Dualed by Elsie Chapman - Mixed reviews about it, but since I have a copy I'll give it a try.
  • Tandem by Anna Jarzab - Did not like the last parallel-worlds book I tried, so hoping this one (with its fantasy elements, which I desperately need right now) will redeem the genre.
  • Let the Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger - I have been told time and again to read this book, so now that I have a pretty paperback copy it will get done. (Happy now, Ash?)
  • Scarlet by Marissa Meyer - I have yet to read Cinder, but I hear this series is good. I don't normally read out of order, but I've heard rumors that you can read Scarlet without having read Cinder - is this true? Because I might just do it... The "wild" me - embrace it. ;)
  • Ink by Amanda Sun - It had me at "set in Japan."
  • The Rithmatist by Brandon Sanderson - This one will either be epic or a yawn for me. I absolutely adored Brandon's Alcatraz series, but his adult books were just too technical to even finish, even if he is the master of magic.


Miss Fortune CookieProxy (Proxy, #1)Legend (Legend, #1)
  • Miss Fortune Cookie by Lauren Bjorkman (ARC - Traded) - Sounded cute so I'll give it a try.
  • Proxy by Alex London (ARC - Traded) - I've always been fascinated with the concept of a "whipping boy" - looking forward to this one.
  • Legend by Marie Lu (PBK - Purchased Used) - Like discovering a gem on a beach of pebbles, I found this beauty at a library Friends for $1.
So what books did you add to your shelves this week?


  1. I actually got The Time Fetch via NetGalley! I haven't read it yet - it looks decent though! Praying that it's not awful. Lol

  2. This book haul is so epic! Extremely epic if you ask me!

  6. Omg!!! You have a billion books that I am DYING TO READ. Premeditated! Unbreakable! SOOOO many good books!

    Let me know if you ever want to trade with me ;)

  7. PREMEDITATED! agh, I'd give an arm and a leg for that one! <3
