Stacking the Shelves (2)

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted over at Tynga's Reviews. I didn't get much this week, but it's better than nothing!

Purchased:




  • Nevermore by James Patterson I'm currently re-reading the Maximum Ride series so that I can enjoy the epic finale even more. If you haven't started this series, you really should. It's absolutely amazing and the characters are hilarious!
  • The Alchemy of Forever by Avery Williams I've wanted this one since it came out. I'm excited that it came out in paperback already. I really like the cover makeover.
  • Revived by Cat Patrick I picked this one up because I love the synopsis and the cover. The cover is just beautiful! Plus, it's blue, which is my favorite cover color.
  • Glow by Amy Kathleen Ryan I wasn't so sure about this one, but I've seen it around a lot, so I decided to pick up a copy for myself.

What did you get this week?

  1. Gosh haven't been here in a while! These books look wonderful. Would you recommend the Maximum Ride series for someone who is a bit iffy about high fantasy books and also someone who has never read a James Patterson novel? Hope you are enjoying your summer, Krystianna!

    1. Yes, I'd recommend the Maximum Ride series for someone who is iffy about fantasy. I'm not the biggest fantasy fan myself. :)

  2. Hey! Hira here from Views & Reviews. Thanks so much for stopping by and for the lovely comment! And you're right, it's never too late to try ;) You should really try it. And I think that it's exactly the simpleness of the white cover that makes you love it!
    BTW really love your blog! And the books you got. I think I'm going to try The Alchemy of Forever..

  13. HEY Krystianna (nice name) Thanks for stopping by my blog & I have to say this blog is pretty sweet, I just had to follow! Anyway's on to books! Yes I would skip the prologue that say's "AFTER" cuz it says pretty much what every reader fears in a final to a series. & the pages to confessions of a murder suspect are red & have letters in them. I read Glow & it wasn't my favorite but give it a try. =D

    Happy Readings!
