Stacking The Shelves (23)

Y’all, we made it to Saturday! Hurray! I am so dreading next week though — it starts the beginning of my 12 hour work days and less time for reading. Boo. Although, I do get to move my extra hours around and take an extra day or so per week off, which is awesome. However, I don’t know about you guys, but half the time I end up wasting extra days off by vegging in front of the TV or doing a bunch of cleaning tasks instead of getting caught up on reading. Anyways, this week’s haul is incredibly awesome and thrills me beyond words, because I am a weirdo like that.

For Review:

Losing It by Cora Carmack | Good Books And Good Wine

Losing It by Cora Carmack (Unsolicited) – I won’t even lie, that cover is fricken awesome. You guys, I actually am quite excited to read Losing It in all it’s New Adult sexytimes glory.

From Netgalley and Edelweiss:

The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa (Netgalley) – FRICK YES. I totally fist pumped over this approval, I can’t wait to see what Allie Sekemoto is up to. Also, I hope she leaves Zeke hahahaha.
This Is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith (Netgalley) – I have already started this after finishing Also Known As yesterday. As expected it’s charming so far. A good bike read.
Rapture Practice by Aaron Hartzler (Netgalley) – If you know me, you know how interesting I find things like the Rapture, oh my goodness. So when I saw there was a YA memoir about that I was like OH HELL YES I NEED THIS.
Game by Barry Lyga (Netgalley) – After LOVING I Hunt Killers I cannot wait to see what happens next for Jazz Dent and omg his killer dad Billy Dent. CANNOT WAIT.
If You Find Me by Emily Murdoch (Netgalley) – I am on the blog tour for this book hosted by Wendy at The Midnight Garden and I am beyond pumped up because Wendy said I’d like this because I liked Living Dead Girl and when Wendy recommends you something, YOU LISTEN.
Gameboard Of The Gods by Richelle Mead (Netgalley) – Fricken yes. You guys, I love Richelle Mead and one of the first phrases in the summary is RELIGIOUS ZEALOTS meaning they just used my own personal bat signal and I will be reading this in a timely fashion.
Levitating Las Vegas by Jennifer Echols (Edelweiss) – I might have yelled a little bit, but you guys I cannot wait to read this adult romance from Echols. It’s going to be awesome.
Severed Heads, Broken Hearts by Robyn Schneider (Edelweiss) – I got to participate in the cover reveal for this book and it’s one I am actually quite excited about!
Reboot by Amy Tintera (Edelweiss) – This book has a bad ass cover, and the concept is cool. I can’t wait to read it!
You Look Different In Real Life by Jennifer Castle (Edelweiss) – Ahhh reality TV, my favorite! Also, I met Jennifer Castle at a signing and she is lovely and awesome and yeah, I can’t wait to read this book.


Signed Marissa Meyer Books | Good Books And Good Wine

Cinder and Scarlet by Marissa Meyer – I went to Marissa’s signing at Oblong Books last Sunday and it was an utterly fantastic experience. If you get the chance to go to her signings, I highly recommend it. Also? I can’t help but respect a girl who knows her senshi.

Such A Rush and Bomb | Good Books And Good Wine

Such A Rush by Jennifer Echols – Purchased from Oblong Books. I bought this because I loved Forget You and I had heart this one was excellent too. Plus, Shanyn is quoted on the back.
Bomb: The Race To Build — And Steal– The World’s Most Dangerous Weapon by Steve Sheinkin – Also purchased from Oblong. This book won quite a few awards at ALA and Maria, a librarian blogger said it was really good.

Purchased For Kindle:

Epic Fail by Claire LeZebnik – I bought this for $2.99, I thought I already had this but I didn’t and now I do. And omg, I love contemporaries and I do say epic fail quite a bit.
Crystal Cove by Lisa Kleypas – Ahhh this was $1.99 and I liked the Kleypas I have already read.
She-Wolves: The Women Who Ruled England Before Elizabeth by Helen Castor – I got this for $1.99 and holy moly you guys I was excited to see a book that’s been on my wishlist FOREVER go down so much in price.


Aristotle And Dante Discover The Secrets Of The Universe | Good Books And Good Wine

From Allison at The Allure Of Books:

Aristotle And Dante Discover The Secrets Of The Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz – Okay this was such a big surprise that I had no idea was coming, but it showed up when I was having a super frustrating day and honestly serves as a nice reminder that I have people in my life who are amazing.

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

  2. DANG GIRL. You hit the book lotto! I haven’t used Edelweiss, but I just checked it out right now because these are some seriously great titles. I JUST checked out LOSING IT from my library’s ebook collection and can’t WAIT to read it! I so agree about the cover 😉 I’m so excited for THIS IS WHAT HAPPY LOOKS LIKE, SEVERED HEADS, REBOOT…AHHH what a great line up!

  3. OH! And EPIC FAIL is so cute. SO CUTE. I just had to add that. I hope you love it!

  4. I bought Such a Rush the other day … it looks really good! And I really want to read Losing It … though, that’s the third different cover I’ve seen so far, which is kind of funny. 🙂

    Enjoy all your books!

  5. April, very nice. I think every blogger that could got The Eternity Cure this week. I fist pumped too when I got the approval. Also very nice on the signed copies of Scarlett and Cinder. Love seeing signed books.

  6. How could you say such a thing?! Allie can’t leave Zeke! *sobs*
    I really need to read Such a Rush soon because it’s been on my wishlist for ages. Maybe one day…

    Lovely haul! Happy reading! 🙂

  7. NG and EW have been BOSS lately!

  8. I read Losing It before they re-published it (or whatever the heck they did with it) and I LOVED it! There is a boy with an accent AND he loves books…but that’s all I will tell you 😉

  9. Those signed copies of Cinder and Scarlet are gorgeous, April!

    And you’ve reminded me that I still want to read I Hunt Killers!

  10. Picture me with dropped jaw and then a jealous expression. Seriously!!!! What a great haul. I can’t even comment on these books individually because they all look incredible.

    Here’s my book haul.

    ~Danica Page@Taking it One Page at a Time

  11. I read Losing It awhile back and really liked it a lot – definitely one of the best New Adults I’ve read. I also read You Look Different In Real Life because I loved Jennifer Castle’s first book…and it was pretty good too. It definitely felt very reality TV-like.

    I’m so excited for a lot of those egalleys too – Gameboard of the Gods and Levitating Las Vegas and the Little Brown titles especially. It was such a KICK ASS egalley week.

  12. We got a few of the same books this tim around.
    I got Reboot and the one about the heads and the hearts, I hope I like them.

    Enjoy all your books.

  13. You got a great selection there! Losing It does look great, the book cover just pulls you in, before you even pick it up! I am following you through WordPress! Awesome blog btw 😉

  14. I just started BOMB today and I’m already hooked. It reads just like a spy novel but it’s spy nonfiction instead. 🙂

  15. Melissa @ Harley Bear Book Blog says

    I’ve been curious about Losing it. The cover is pretty great. Can’t wait to read your review. And AHH Eternity Cure!!! Seems like we’ve been waiting forever for this to come out. Enjoy all your fabulous books. My Stacking The Shelves post

  16. Cinder/Scarlet! 😀 Hope you enjoy all your books. You got some really amazing ones.

  17. I love what Marissa Meyer signed in your books!! So awesome.
    I started This is What Happy Looks Like as soon as I had it downloaded, and it is really cute so far!

  18. I really do want to attend a signing with Marissa Meyer now because those books look gorgeous. Amazing haul overall!

  19. Awesome book haul! Holy hotness batman, that cover to Losing It is, wow. I need to go check this book out. Happy Reading!

  20. Another with Gameboard of the Gods. I’m so jealous! I can’t wait to see what you think of it!

  21. So many goodies for you to read!

    I read Losing It before the holidays + I couldn’t put it down but in retrospect, it kind of annoyed me. I think the writing was pretty good but I keep getting nervous that New Adult is going to fall into this category of sex and weird girl friendships? I don’t know. But it’s sexy… there is that. haha.

    And yay for JES. She is the best + I will say this until I die. I really enjoyed her latest book… it reminded me a ton of her second book, You are Here. Have you read it? It’s really beautiful.

    Anyway, hope you had a great weekend and bowled some strikes yesterday!

  22. It seems like everyone went to a Marissa Meyer signing this week. That’s awesome!

    Losing It does sound really amazing and sexy!

    Here’s Mine @ Pinkindle Reads & Reviews

  23. Vegging with books and TV is EXACTLY how I spent my weekend. With a break for dinner and Beatles & Green Day Rock Band with friends.

    Oooh, if you like Losing It, I may have to add it to my list. Did that get picked up by a for reals pub? I missed that, but that cover is different and more professional looking.

    How do you read all of these egalleys? I am overwhelmed!

    Ahhhh, Marissa Meyer signing! Love her books. I know you do too, and that you know I love them, but it always bears reiterating, yes?

    In re: Epic Fail, I just read The Trouble with Flirting, and it was GREAT. Weeeee! I will tell you only happy things this week.

  24. I’m so jealous of everyone that got invited to view those Little, Brown titles. I want to read This is What Happy Looks Like so badly. I requested it from LB a couple of months ago via email but I think they just ignored me. LOL.

    Geeking out over your signed Marissa Meyer copies! That sounds like it was a ton of fun!

  25. I’m so jealous that you got to see Marissa Meyer! I really wanted to be at her event in Brooklyn, but I was on vacation so that didn’t work out. She seems like such a fab person, and I still aspire to meet her one day!
