Stacking the Shelves 11

meme hosted by Tynga

Hope everyone had a great shorter week, with Canada Day and Independence Day!

This past week, I reviewed The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead (oh, the Adrian swoony-ness!)… and consequently, I also had a feature on our favourite fictional bad boys (with a bunch of fellow bloggers weighing in on their faves)… and THEN, speaking of bad boys… as indicated in my post, my fave is Sawyer from Lost. So 6 years later, I decided to re-introduce the lil Lost webcomic I created!

For Review


  

 

Sneak (Swipe, #2) by Evan Angler <– eARC for read & review from publisher. Didn’t realize it was a sequel.. so now I’ll have to get the first one!

Love Slave by Jennifer Spiegel <– eARC for read & review from publisher. Discovered via Netgalley’s newsletter!

These Things Happen by Richard Kramer <– eARC for read & review from publisher. Also discovered from NG’s newsletter. Looked interesting..

Eve & Adam by Michael Grant & Katherine Applegate <– ARC for read & review from publisher. I LOVE this cover!

Seraphina by Rachel Hartman <– For read & review from the publisher. Really excited to get to this, and just in time for the free Toronto Public Library event with the author & Kelley Armstrong in a few weeks!

 

Purchased

 

OMG. I really didn’t buy anything this week!? :O

 

Borrowed

 

Paper Towns by John Green <– Borrowed from the library! Hadn’t been in a while and was excited to see this new-condition copy on the shelf!

The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield <– Also borrowed from library. I had been meaning to read this for ages.. now, no excuse!

 

Gifted

How exciting! I won a very generous $25 Amazon gift card from Scoops’ Blogoversary contest! (To which I’ve already gone shopping and bought myself Tokyo Heist and Tiger Lily! :P)

  1. Ohh you bought Tokyo Heist and Tiger Lily!! I want to get Tokyo Heist. Tiger Lily was really good. All of your review books sound fab!! I didn’t buy any books this week either!! Well, I did, but they were all pre-orders so I won’t have them for a few months.

  2. I am super jealous of Eve and Adam! And I’m also jealous of Tiger Lily! It sounds really good and I hope you enjoy your books!

    Check out my Stacking the Shelves!

  3. Eve and Adam has such an interesting cover. I’ll have to look into that one. Seraphina also sounds really good!

  21. I heard really good things about Tiger Lily! I can’t wait to read it. And I LOVE Michael Grant’s Gone series so dude, I am super-psyched for Eve & Adam. Also? I LOVE the typography on the cover of Love Slave! So cool.

    Happy reading! Here’s my Book Haul: http://reutreads.wordpress.com/2012/07/08/book-haul-51/

  22. Fabulous book haul, Michele! Hope you enjoy all the pretties and HAPPY SUNDAY!

  23. I had the same trouble with Sneak! It really sounded like a new stand alone. I can’t wait to get my own book from Eve & Adamn. Seraphina wasn’t really my thing, but I know that a lot of people love it.

    Happy reading! ^^

  24. I didn’t know Swipe had a sequel! I have the eArc of Swipe but haven’t got to it yet (better get on it soon if there’s another one coming!).
    And Eve and Adam sounds fantastic!

  25. Nice stack of books this week! The only book that I’ve read is Paper Town and I did enjoy it quite a bit. It was definitely a quirky book.
