Stacking the Shelves (8)

Stacking the Shelves is a new weekly meme hosted by Tynga of Tynga's Reviews. It's a weekly post where book bloggers share the books they received throughout the week.


I'm not home right now, so I'll make this post quick and to the point. I was pretty good this week and only bought one book and then only received two for review. So all in all it's not too bad and it hasn't added to much to my TBR pile. So without further ado, here's what I got.

Review:


- Katya's World by Jonathan L. Howard (from Strange Chemistry) - This one sounds really interesting and like something a little different. Plus I'm really excited about all the Strange Chemistry books that are coming out this fall. They should definitely all be interesting, this one included.


- Venom by Fiona Paul (from Razorbill CA) - So this book takes place during the Renaissance in Venice, what more do you need? Ever since I first heard about this book I have been dying to read it. I love the Renaissance and Venice is an absolutely fantastic place to set a story. I'm pretty sure I'm part of a blog tour for this book as well so be sure to look out for that closer to the release date.






Purchased:



- The Land of Stories by Chris Colfer - I'm not usually a big Middle Grade reader but this book sounds absolutely adorable and I've heard that it's actually really good so that made me excited to read it. Plus it was written by Chris Colfer (Kurt on Glee) and I love him so how exactly was I supposed to pass up this book?






So that's it for me this week. Be sure to leave me a comment below telling me what you got and I'll try to come check it out at some point during the week. 

On a different note, tomorrow I will be advocating for Lucas Delos from Josephine Angelini's Starcrossed trilogy in the YA Crush Tournament so if you could head over to YA Sisterhood to vote for Lucas, that would be greatly appreciated.

Have a great week!
