Stacking the Shelves (6/8/13)

I'm participating in the Insomnia blog tour! Check out my interview of the author, J.R. Johansson, and enter to win a 10-page critique HERE!

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.

Famous Last WordsThe OriginalsThe Boyfriend AppCold Fury (Cold Fury, #1)Skip Beat!, Vol. 31Blue Exorcist, Vol. 8Blue Exorcist, Vol. 9The Shambling Guide to New York City
  • Famous Last Words by Jennifer Salvato Doktorski (ARC - Traded) - I'm a sucker for stories about writers, and this one sounds pretty good. The ARC has a different cover though and I highly approve of the final one (above) because the ARC one gives it a creepy feel.
  • The Originals by Cat Patrick (ARC - Traded) - Sounds interesting and different.
  • The Boyfriend App by Katie Sise (ARC - Traded) - Been looking forward to this one - it's supposed to be really fun.
  • Cold Fury by T.M. Goeglein (ARC - Traded) - Jason Bourne meets The Sopranos. Yes, please.
  • Skip Beat Volume 31 by Yoshiki Nakamura (PBK - Purchased) - These release four/five months apart now, and the wait is torture. Tied as my favorite manga series with Kamisama Kiss.
  • Blue Exorcist Volumes 8 and 9 by Kazue Kato (PBK - Purchased) - Stopped collecting this series a while ago but then got on a manga kick this week and got back into it.
  • The Shambling Guide to New York City by Mur Lafferty (PBK - Library Borrowed) - I don't normally mention library books, but this one was worth noting. I have been looking forward to it since they announced it sold to the publisher over a year ago, and the fact that it came out in paperback has only further made my year. It's a rare day that I'm excited about an adult book, but I started reading this one the second I got it home.
So what books did you add to your shelves this week?


  1. Gah, Famous Last Words! If it's anything like How My Summer Went Up In Flames (by the same author) I know I'm going to love it! Plus it comes out on my birthday! Have fun reading all of your goodies!

  5. Great haul!!! My brother is in love with the Blue Exorcist, he keeps raving over it. I have yet to start the series though even though I really want to. Rarely does my brother stray me wrong with Manga.
