Stacking the Shelves (7/13/13)

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.

Rush (The Game, #1)The Ward (The Ward, #1)Storybound (Storybound #1)The Archived (The Archived, #1)Flora's Fury (Flora Trilogy, #3)Black Heart (Curse Workers, #3)Blue Exorcist, Vol. 10The Ruins of Gorlan (Ranger's Apprentice, #1)The Ropemaker (The Ropemaker, #1)
  • Rush by Eve Silver (ARC - Traded) - It's here, it's here!!! I've been waiting to read this book forever, but I had it on a delayed trade so it didn't arrive until Thursday (talk about torture). Cannot wait to dig into this one!
  • The Ward by Jordana Frankel (ARC - Traded) - Another delayed trade I've been waiting forever and a day for. Its devouring shall quickly follow that of Rush.
  • Storybound by Marissa Burt (ARC - Traded) - It had me at "children go to school to learn to be characters." As a writer, this has the makings to be awesome!
  • The Archived by Victoria Schwab (ARC - Traded) - I've already read it, but I know I'll definitely want to read it again.
  • Flora's Fury by Ysabeau S. Wilce (ARC - Traded) - Loved the first book, so I'm looking forward to continuing Flora's zany adventures.
  • Black Heart by Holly Black (ARC - Traded) - Was hoping for the original cover on the ARC, but no such luck. Still, it's paperback, and I absolutely love this series.
  • Blue Exorcist 10 by Kazue Kato (PBK - Purchased New) - Back in love with this series, so back to collecting the volumes as they release.
  • Ranger's Apprentice: The Ruins of Gorlan by John Flanagan (PBK - Purchased Used) - Caught my eye and I thought it might be worth a try. Especially now that I've discovered its star average is 4.15. Wow.
  • Ropemaker by Peter Dickinson (PBK - Purchased Used) - Recognized this as a book I read when I was younger. Unsure if I liked it or not, but sometimes it's fun to go back and rediscover titles from one's youth.
