Stacking The Shelves (41)

Man do I feel refreshed — I’ve been off work since Wednesday at 12 p.m. and have been taking the time to really relax. I’ve read three books on this mini-break — one just wasn’t grabbing me so I would do things like put it off and watch repeats of How I Met Your Mother instead. I also have about 110 pages left of A Clash Of Kings so I am in the final stretch and focusing on reading more of that. Aside from Thanksgiving, the only time I have left the house is to check the mail on Saturday. ALSO. You guys, I have been doing Blogilates again and am seeing a bit of a difference. Hurray! Alas, you are here to hear about books and not my life, so let’s get to what came in the mail.

For Review:

STS 41-1

The Eye Of Minds by James Dashner (Accepted Review Copy) – This book is actually no longer in my house, I sent our newest member Cassie off with it because she’s a huge James Dashner fan and more likely to get to it than I am.

STS 41-2

Ruins by Dan Wells (Unsolicited Review Copy) – Ahhhh, I still need to read Fragments but I am excited for both because I really thought Partials was awesome.
Maybe One Day by Melissa Kantor (Unsolicited Review Copy) -This book sounds so sad, I think I am going to save it for when I need a good cry.

STS 41-3

Pretty Sly by Elisa Ludwig (Unsolicited Review Copy) – I liked Pretty Crooked, so this sequel does actually interest me.
Perfect Lies by Kiersten White (Unsolicited Review Copy) – I have already read and scheduled my review of Perfect Lies, so I am about to pass this on to Allison!

STS 41-4

Side Effects May Vary by Julie Murphy (Unsolicited Review Copy) – AHHHHH you guys I am beyond excited to read this, I have heard lots and lots of good early buzz about it.
Faking Normal by Courtney C. Stevens (Unsolicited Review Copy) – This is a book about abuse, so I think when I finish it, it will find it’s way into my office.

STS 41-5

Being Sloane Jacobs by Lauren Morrill (Amazon Vine) – I basically picked this one because I have a habit of picking out Vine books that are also Netgalley books. Also, Lauren Morrill is the best. The end.
Tales From My Closet by Jennifer Anne Moses (Unsolicited Review Copy) – Yo, those red shoes on that cover? SIGN ME UP. Also, this has five POVs and looks cute, I will read it when I am in the mood for a fun read.

STS 41-6

Rome by Jay Crownover (Unsolicited Review Copy) – Total blue steel cover you guys.
Suddenly Royal by Nichole Chase (Unsolicited Review Copy) – This sounds like a grown up version of The Princess Diaries or The Prince And Me. I am totally down.

STS 41-7

Killer Of Enemies by Joseph Bruchac (Unsolicited Review Copy) – Second copy! I will give this away when I am feeling motivated enough to put together a rafflecopter.
Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight (Unsolicited Review Copy) – So, this book is being compared to Gone Girl which was one of my favorites this year. I had no plans to read it, but now, well, I think I am going to try to make time for it.
Revelations by JA Souders (Unsolicited Review Copy) – This is a sequel to a book I have not read and do not have. Who knows if/when I will read this.

  1. Nice haul! I got approved for Being Sloane Jacobs on Netgalley and am about 60 pages into it. I enjoyed Meant to Be, but I think the author’s writing/plotting has really improved in this one. And I’m quite jealous of Side Effects May Vary! I hope that one becomes available on Edelweiss soon. Happy reading, April, and I’m glad you had a good Thanksgiving!

  2. Being Sloane Jacobs AHHHHH I super wanna read that one! I really love Lauren Morrill! I got Maybe One Day and Faking Normal for review too! Both look like great reads! 🙂

  3. Wow you got a super nice haul this time around!

    I have the e-ARC’s of a lot of these. Being Sloane Jacobs was a great read. I really enjoyed it. Maybe One Day had me curled up in the fetal position sobbing hysterically by the end of it. I just bought Mind Games so I can read my e-ARC of Perfect Lies right afterwards. I also have Faking Normal but I don’t need to read that one until next month.

    I am so jealous that you got Reconstructing Amelia. I want that book SO badly.

    Happy Reading!

  5. I’m kind of jealous of your awesome haul April. So many great Harper Teen titles that I’m salivating over. I managed to pick up Renegade a few weeks ago. Come check out my stack as well.

  6. These are totally awesome! I’m excited to see what you think of these 🙂 Hope you enjoy them all! 🙂

    Check out my STS!

  7. I ADORE your haul! I’m super excited about Side Effects May Vary and Maybe One Day. I’ve got Being Sloane Jacobs as well, and I’m nervous about that one since I was not a fan of Meant to Be. Hopefully I feel differently about this one. I’m looking forward to your review for Faking Normal because I’m not quite sure if I want to read it yet or not…
