Stacking the Shelves (15)- The Review Book Edition


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 didn’t post a book haul last week so this is my haul for the past fortnight.

The Elites by Natasha Ngan- I pre-ordered this one months ago and am so happy to finally receive it! The cover is gorgeous and it looks great alongside my other UKYA books.

After I posted my book addict post last week, Fiona from Eventide Reads tweeted me to say she had found these two in a charity shop and I had the biggest freak out ever. It’s my favourite series and I’m collecting all the editions so I’ve got nearly all of them now. Thank you, Fiona!

What did you get this week?

    Awesome book haul, Lucy! I’ve been hearing so much about The Elites and I’m dying to read it! I haven’t seen copies here yet though so that’s unfortunate. I’m excited about Antigoddess too because GREEK MYTHOLOGY IS PURE AWESOMEEE! Oh and I love the cover you got for Every Day! That book was amazing and entirely unique. I think it’s impossible for me not to love anything written by Levithan. Hope you enjoy the book as well! 🙂

    Ooh, The Elites! Natasha’s a sweetheart, so I really should buy the book…I guess for some reason I didn’t think it was coming out for awhile yet, though! I’ve been hearing great things about Antigoddess, and I’m intrigued by the Kit Berry books, so I’ll have to check those out. Happy reading! 🙂

    Antigoddess looks good! I bet the physical copy looks real nice, as does your copy of The Elites. I’m going to have to look further into that book because I’m pretty sure my have-read list of UKYA books is very small. I need to find more of them to read!

    Enjoy your books!

    SO many amazing books! I’m dying to get my hands on Antigoddess & Dead Jealous, so I can’t wait to see what you think of them! Same goes for The Elites 🙂
    I need to get around to reading the rest of the Gallagher Girls series. I’ve only read the first book, but I’m hoping to get to them soon!
    Fantastic haul Lucy! Happy reading 🙂
