Stacking the Shelves (2)

 Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews that showcases the books that you got last week.

So, I haven't done a post in forever showing off my books. It's been at least a month if not more. Sorry guys, I've been busy doing finale project and a ton of exams that I haven't had the time to sit down and make a Stacking the Shelves post. So below is the stack of books that have been added to my shelves in the last month of so.


Insurgent - Of course like everyone else I just has to purchase a copy of this. I read it and LOVED it and my review is up if you're interested on my thoughts on it.

City of Lost Souls -I started and read most of this book, but put it down because it's been a bit of a let down... I was so excited for this one and it feel a bit short.

For Review:

Venom -( From Penguin Canada) This book sounds awesome and has a amazing cover. It doesn;t come out until late October so I won't be reading it too shortly, but soon enough.

Rift (From Penguin Canada) I've alrady read this one actually and it was pretty good. Not as great as Nightshade, but it does have a better main character which is a relief.

Betrayed (Spencerhill Press) Haven't heard too much about this book, but it's about angels and those are some of my favourite books so I hope to like this one.

Rapture  (Random House Canada) I've only read the first 2 in this series, so I'll have to read Passion before I can get to this one. I also haven't been a fan of this series, so I guess we'll see how much I like the ending.

Mister Death's Blue Eyed Girls - (Thomas Allen and Sons) haven't heard of this book before but from the back of the book the concept interests me.

Pilgrims Don't Wear Pink - (Thomas Allen and Sons) This sounds like a fun and cute read that I hope to read over the summer.

Enchanted - (Thomas Allen and Sons) I got  an ARC of this earlier in the year and I've already read and review it on the blog, but it's nice to have a gorgeous finished copy for my shelves.

Underworld - (Scholastic Canada) Haven't read any book by Meg Cabot before, do I'll have to read Abandoned first before I get to this one. I love Greek mythology though.

Immortal City - (Penguin Canada) Heard mixed reviews on this one, looking forward to forming my own opinion.

I also got some arts and craft books from Thomas Allen and Sons for some reason and I've actually started making some of the things in the book and it's really fun.

 Rivals and Retribution - (Raincoast books) I'm a huge fan of this series and am really looking forward to see how it all ends.

Last Rite - (TOR teen) Have yet to read this series, so I have to get on that. As you can see I got 2 copies, so possible giveaway?

Eve and Adam - (Macmillan) Super excited to get an ARC of this book. I love Michael Grant and excited to see their take on the genesis story. Girl makes boy? Awesome!

When We Wake - (Hatchette Canada) This doesn't come out until March 2013, so I definitely wont be reading any time soon. It does sound like a great book though.

Soulbound - (Penguin Canada) Started reading this one and so far so good.

Black City - I've already read this one and really enjoyed it!

What did YOU get in your mailbox? Link me up!

  4. Is it bad that I haven't read Divergent or any of the mortal instrument books? ...I'm ashamed! Both series have been like the epitome of epicness, I just haven't gotten around to reading them yet but hopefully soon!

  6. You got so many books that I've been dying to read! I requested Black City a while ago and I'm so glad you liked it! :) I also requested When We Wake and Venom but I don't know if I'll get accepted for it. I hope you enjoy your books, though! :)

  7. Looking good! Looks like we have some of the same books this week! I hope you enjoy Immortal City, it was one of my favourites!

    Here is my Stacking the Shelves post for this week.

  8. Some very nice stuff there! :D I have Insurgent but haven't read it yet. Black City looks really interesting. Anyway, I hope you're enjoying all your new books. (And I certainly know how it is to be busy!) Have a great week!

  9. Insurgent was so great! Ahh I can't wait for Eve and Adam to be on sale. I don't have Macmillian as a contact yet. I can't seem to find a contact for them yet lol. Also keep reading the Fallen series, because Passion turns out better, and so does Rapture. I loved Rapture. It redeemed the entire series for me. Also Immortal City wasn't so bad. Ahh Black City! Awesome haul this week!
