Stacking The Shelves (21)

Is it just me or do the weekends go by way too fast? At least this weekend was nice and relaxing with my book and I watched a few movies too. PLUS I joined Tumblr! Finally!

For Review:

Fancy Nancy Clancy by Jane O'Connor | Good Books And Good Wine

Two Fancy Nancy books by Jane O’Connor (Unsolicited) – I actually donated these two books to the domestic violence shelter because I’m sure I won’t review them, as I’m not interested and also because I know the children in there will like these books, plus they are durable and hardcover.

3 Contemporary Sumer Books Penguin Teen | Good Books And Good Wine

All I Need by Susane Colasanti (Unsolicited) – Oh my goodness I am so excited for this summer romance!
Five Summers by Una LaMarche (Unsolicited) – YES! SUMMER CAMP, I am so excited. There better be color war within these pages.
The Moon And More by Sarah Dessen (Unsolicited) – I am on the blog tour for this, and ahhhh, you guys I get to host Sarah Dessen here in a few weeks. And yes, I will totally be giving away my copy of The Moon And More, so stay subscribed so you don’t miss it.

Three Penguin Teen ARCs February 2013 | Good Books And Good Wine

White Lines by Jennifer Banash (Unsolicited) – I actually have this on Netgalley, but still am excited to read because it sounds super emotional, ya know?
Flicker & Burn by TM Goeglein (Unsolicited) – So, I kind of need to read the first book, Cold Fury but it sounds really awesome like it’s about the mob, so yeah pumped up.
Phoenix by Elizabeth Richards (Unsolicited) – While I did not LOVE Black City, I suppose I can give this book a shot, because hey authors can improve over time.

3 Hard Cover Books | Good Books And Good Wine

The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz by L. Frank Baum illustrated by Michael Sieben (Unsolicited) – Yo, I actually just listened to the audiobook of this, however I plan on flipping through and looking at the pictures. I love the cover.
Pivot Point by Kasie West (Unsolicited) – Second copy, but yay FINISHED!
Crash And Burn by Michael Hassan (Unsolicited) – Second copy, also finished. Holla.

From Netgalley and Edelweiss:

Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers – AHHHH! Yes, I’ve already started this. I’m going to try and read some of it on the bike today. It’s fantastic so far.
The Flame In The Mist by Kit Grindstaff – This was on my list of debuts that I’m looking forward to, I cannot freakin’ wait to start this.
Wednesdays In The Tower by Jessica Day George – I loved Tuesdays At The Castle and cannot wait to see what happens next.
Golden by Jessi Kirby – I loved Moonglass and after seeing Asheley’s review, I immediately requested this one.

Gifted:

Scarlet by Marissa Meyer Hoodie | Good Books And Good Wine

Scarlet hoodie, bookmarks and lip gloss – from Macmillan as a thank you for being on the Cinder paperback blog tour! Y’all, I am so excited about this, and as I type this I am totally sitting in my new hoodie. I have worn it around work a few times and have to say, this is my favorite kind of swag, PLUS it really does get the Lunar Chronicles out there.

Purchased:

Signed Books | Good Books And Good Wine

Bittersweet by Sarah Ockler – I wish I had taken a picture of the awesome Oblong Books display, but there was like a side for sweet love and a side for darker love and I’ve been wanting to read this forever, thus bought it. Yay paperbacks, FYI.
The Tragedy Paper by Elizabeth LaBan – I LOVED this book and am pumped to own a signed copy.
Lovely, Dark And Deep by Amy McNamara – I cannot wait to read this and plan on getting to it before the end of the month.
Just One Day by Gayle Forman – My signed copy now holds a spot as one of my most treasured possessions. I love this book.

Purchased for Kindle:

Stone Of Tears by Terry Goodkind – This was free and it’s the sequel to The Sword Of Truth which is on my TBR.
If I Fall by Kate Noble – The Book Smugglers are fans of Kate Noble and this is currently $1.99 so, of course I bought it without a second thought.
A Week To Be Wicked by Tessa Dare – Looking forward to finding out what happens next in Spindle Cove. Also, this was $3.79.
A Lady By Midnight by Tessa Dare – More Spindle Cove! Huzzah! Also this was $2.99 so yes, instabuy.
Lessons From A Scandalous Bride by Sophie Jordan – I will read the hell out of anything Sophie Joran writes. Also, this is currently $2.99. She’s a good try if you’re looking to check out adult romance but don’t know where to start.

In case you skipped it or missed it, here’s a recap of what we’ve posted here last week:

Allison reveals her top Ten Bookish Memories and some embarrassing memories that involve me.

I hope more people read Paper Valentine by Brenna Yovanoff because the writing style is utterly wonderful.

In which I am jealous that private schools have secret societies and rooms and such, or my review of The Lies That Bind by Lisa And Laura Roecker.

That one time I felt this book had an utterly ridiculous ending.

Answering the age old question: Who Is Marcus Flutie?

Looking for a new romance to read? Check out Yours At Midnight by Robin Bielman!

Celebrate the snow with Snowed Over by Angie Stanton.

Stacking The Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.

  1. Wow!! You had an epic week! So cool that you got The Moon And More, Sarah Dessen is such a wonderful writer. And that Scarlet hoodie is so awesome!!

    Fabulous books! Hope you enjoy reading everything 🙂

  2. New blog design! It looks fantastic, April! 🙂 Also, I am so jealous about The Moon and More! I want to read it so badly, so I hope it’s good! Happy Reading! 😀

  3. Looks like a whole lot of awesome! I really need to get my hands on a finished copy of Just One Day.

  4. I really enjoyed Pivot Point!
    Also hooray for Golden. That is one book I want to crawl up on top of my house and wave my arms around and shout to the entire Eastern Seaboard – WAKE UP WORLD and PREORDER THIS BUSINESS!! So amazingly good. You will absolutely love it, no doubt about it. Pumped that you requested after my review.
    LOVE LOVE LOVE Lovely Dark and Deep. It’s such a beautiful story and book.

    And I think I’ve worn my hoodie at least every other day for a little while since it arrived. Since I’m taking a train to BEA, I’m gonna wear it and completely pretend to be Scarlet. It’s gonna be great. Haha

  5. That hoodie looks so comfy!

    I have Bittersweet and need to read it. Looks like a perfect winter read.

    And yay Gayle Forman! Glad you got a chance to meet her!

  6. Oh my gosh, that sweatshirt is awesome. I generally don’t like the color red (no idea why, but it is the one color I don’t like), but hell yeah, I would wear that. I also don’t like hoodies much (I always feel the the hood is pulling the neckline of the shirt back) but again, I would still be sporting that! I’m so excited for the Marissa Meyer event at Oblong Books next Sunday. I am soooo going (as long as the weather doesn’t get in my way).

    Also, I bet those Fancy Nancy books will be well loved at the Domestic Violence center. I can’t keep them on the shelves at the library. They’re always checked out.

    Anyway, enjoy your goodies. Happy reading 🙂

  7. WOW! Lots of awesome books!!
    I hope you like the Dessen book, I can’t wait for your tour stop

  8. I really want to read The Moon and More. Enjoy all your new reads. The hoodie looks great!

  9. So jealous you got the new Dessen-actually all the books in that set look exceptionally good and I can’t wait for them to be released!

  10. The summer romance package from Penguin looks so good! Too bad your copy of The Moon and More has a slightly messed up spine. 🙁

    Hmmm, I am less excited by the second Penguin pack, which I suppose is okay, since I totally won’t be getting it. :-p

    PIVOT POINT! I hope you love it!!!

  11. Ok, have I ever mentioned to you how much I LOVE Penguin Teen? Because you and I will be devouring our spankin’ new copies of The Moon and More, Five Summers, and All I Need and oh, golly I can’t wait to FREAKING START.

    And PIVOT POINT. I really want to try that sucker out. And, oh. Boo. Now I’m sulking because it’s come to my attention that Dark Triumph is out for bloggers and I’m on a self-imposed Netgalley ban AND OHHH *huffs*

    I NEED to get my hands on both Lovely, Dark, and Deep and The Tragedy Paper because I’ve heard IMPOSSIBLY AMAZEBEANS things said about it. And you are one of the top reasons I’m going to MAKE SURE I don’t have to renew Just One Day *lol*

  12. Awesome, April! I am in love with that hoodie. You guys are so lucky to get that!

    The new Sarah Dessen looks like so much fun and I can’t wait to read it.

    I’ve heard great things about Pivot Point.

    I love the photos you’ve taken this week!

  13. I was going to get all excited over the fact that we both have the Scarlet hoodie (which is nice and warm and cozy), and that you have a copy of Golden to read for review BUT I am MOST excited that you have A Week to be Wicked by Tessa Dare. That book is SO GOOD. I loved it!
