Stacking the Shelves (1)

In light of recent events, which I am not going to touch on, I am trying out new posts to showcase all the book that I receive each week. This week I'm trying out Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga of Tynga's Reviews. It's a post were we showcase the books we add to our shelves each week and a way for bloggers to discover new books. So here goes.



Just when I thought I was finally getting my pile of books to review under control, my mailbox kind of explodes. The week started out slow, with me buying a couple of books I have been waiting to come out and then the second half of the week got kind of crazy. At any rate, I'm really excited about all the books I received, so here's what I got this week.

Review:



- The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda - I've heard really great things about this one and it definitely sounds interesting. I've also heard that it can be quite scary so maybe I won't read it before bed when I read it.

- While He Was Away by Karen Schreck - Since I first heard about this one I have been wanting to read While He Was Away. I'm really happy to have a copy and you can be sure I'll be reading it soon.

- The Vicious Deep by Zoraida Cordova - This is a mermaid book that sounds delightfully creepy, at least fromt the description. It should be interesting to read a mermaid story that sounds a little darker.

- The Summer of No Regrets by Katherine Grace Bond - This book is a contemporary that sounds like the perfect summer read, with just the right balance of light and serious. I'm definitely looking forward to reading it.

- Goddess Interrupted by Aimee Carter - I'll admit that I haven't yet read The Goddess Test but since I've heard great things I'll be picking that one and Goddess Interrupted quite soon.

- Surrender by Elana Johnson - I haven't read the first book in this series but I definitely will now that I have the second one for review. Hopefully it's as good as I have heard it is.

- Never Enough by Denise Jaden - I loved Denise Jaden's first book, Losing Faith, so I'm really looking forward to this one. I'm hoping it will be as good as her first book.

- The Unnaturalists by Tiffany Trent - I have heard nothing about this book but the summary makes it sound really interesting. It sounds like an interesting steampunk read and I'm looking forward to reading it.

- Envy by Elizabeth Miles - I had some issues with the first book in this series when I read it last year, but I'm really looking forward to seeing how the author continues so I'm looking forward to reading it.

- Burn for Burn by Jenny Han & Siobhan Vivian - I've seen this one pop up here and there but since it doesn't release until September, I haven't head much. It sounds like a really interesting story coming from two really great authors.

Thank you to Raincoast Books, HarlequinTeen and Simon & Schuster Canada for sending me all these amazing books to review!

Purchased:


- Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris - I have been waiting for so long for this book to come out. I'm so happy to finally have a copy and be able to see just how amazing it is for myself. Hopefully I'll be reading it soon.

- Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin - This is another one I've been waiting on for quite some time. And I have heard that it is a fantastic read so I'm really looking forward to picking it up.


So that's all for me this week. My TBR pile has definitely grown A LOT but I'm looking forward to all these wonderful books. If you haven't already, you can still enter my giveaway for an ARC of The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead. And as usual, leave me a comment and I'll try to come stop by your blog too!

  5. I'm reading The Hunt right now. I usually read before bed and let me just say that, reading The Hunt, I read INSTEAD of bed. Which is probably good because it will probably give me nightmares.

  7. Wow, you got some amazing books! I'm particularly excited about Unraveling, Burn for Burn (Jenny Han!), Never Enough and The Unnaturalists. Hope you enjoy them. :)

    Since I read about The Hunt I've been concerned about whether I'd be able to read it. Will be looking forward to hearing what you say - how bad the creep-factor gets.

    See what I got! I'm no longer doing IMM, but I'm still doing book hauls.

  9. The Hunt is definitely creepy! Maybe read it with the lights on ;-) I loved the world-building and the unique 'features' the vampires have.

    Great books!

  10. YES! Masque of the Red Death is my favourite book of 2012 (so far anyways). It's amazing.

    Burn for Burn looks interesting! I have heard so many amazing things about Vicious Deep as well. Can't wait to read your review.

    Great week in books for you!

  12. What a great collection! I'll be eager to hear what you think about them. I read The Hunt and didn't find it particularly scary. I did like the world building in the story though.

    I do two new books posts each week. I showcase my new YA and Middle Grade books at Ms. Martin Teaches Media. I spotlight new adult books at Inside of a Dog. Happy reading!

  13. Whoo! Look at all those books for review! Awesome! THE HUNT looks really good. I'm interested to read from a guy's point of view. AHh you must read Possession so you can read Surrender. I really enjoyed that one!
