Book Haul

Stacking the Shelves (14)



Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks! It is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.

I’m actually very pleased this week because I didn’t get many books! I know that sounds crazy but I think it’s the first week in ages I haven’t bought anything.

Review Books

sts24-8-2013 001

All the Truth That’s in Me by Julie Berry- I’ve already read this one and really enjoyed it. Review coming soon! Thank you, Templar!

The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau- I’m currently reading this and it’s a bit iffy. I love the cover, though! Thank you, Templar!


To review:

Wild Cards by Simone Elkeles- This sounds so good and I haven’t read anything by Simone Elkeles. I’m looking forward to starting it. Thank you, Bloomsbury!

Resist by Sarah Crossan- I let out a little squee when I got the email to say I’d been accepted to review this. I enjoyed Breathe and really want to know what happens next. Thank you, Bloomsbury!

What did YOU get this week?

    I’m ridiculously excited for Wild Cards as I’m a huge fan of Simone Elkeles. You should read Perfect Chemistry as well!

    Awesome haul! I’ve heard such fantastic things about The Testing. It has been compared to The Hunger Games which makes me want to read it even more. I hope you enjoy all of your books!

    I hope you like Wild Cards! Simone Elkeles is one of my favorite authors, and I just love her novels. I’ve heard her latest one isn’t as good as all the rest, though, so if you aren’t wowed by it, I would strongly suggest reading Perfect Chemistry or Leaving Paradise.

    I don’t do Stacking the Shelves often, so mine is for all of August so far.

    I hope your book picks up. It’s annoying to have an iffy one, but hopefully it means you get some lovely ones coming up as a bonus! Happy reading Lucy! 🙂

    Lucy, does that happen to be your bookshelf in the background? Lol how come you have 3 copies of TFIOS? I’m a curious cat, sorry. Anyway, awesome haul! I’ve been hearing many great things about All The Truth That’s In Me! Wish I had a copy so I could read it too! And did you just say you haven’t read any Elkeles book? *GASP* You must read Perfect Chemistry! In other news, I have Wild Cards too and I’m so excited to read it I kinda have a crush on the guy on the cover!

      It is a small section of one of my shelves! It’s because it’s my favourite book. One copy is mine, the other is my grandma’s and she gave me hers and the other is a copy I found for really cheap. I JUST LIKE BUYING BOOKS, OKAY? *hides in a corner*

    YOU HAVE RESIST? I just requested a copy on NetGalley and am waiting, pretty impatiently to find out whether or not I get accepted. I just adored Breathe!

    You got some amazing books this month! Although, I can’t help noticing the three gorgeous The Fault in Our Stars copies on your shelf! My copies would be highlighted if I had all of those! 😉
