Stacking the Shelves (14)



Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews.
I purchased and received quite a lot this week! Instead of posting the synopsis's like I usually do, I decided to just use pictures because I don't want to have a really long post.
Purchased:

Beautiful Creatures, Beautiful Darkness, and Beautiful Chaos by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl I have heard amazing things about this series and I bought this as a box set. I already own the first book, but the box set was only $17 so it was cheaper than buying the second and third book in paperback!

Hunger, Lies, and Plague by Michael Grant I read Gone last year and I really loved it, so I decided that it's about time to buy the rest of the books that are out in paperback. I'm excited to visit Grant's world once again!

Everneath by Brodi Ashton I've seen this book all over the book world and since it is now available in paperback, there is no reason for me to not read it!

Gravity by Melissa West I had forgotten about how much I wanted this book until I saw it on the shelves of the bookstore. I can't wait to finally read it! The tagline really drew me in too... Don't. Ever. Peek.

Specials by Scott Westerfeld I read Uglies and Pretties about three or four years ago, and I absolutely loved both of them. I finally decided to get the third book and I'm really looking forward to seeing how it all ends.



For Review:
Thank you Macmillan!

The Prey by Andrew Fukuda I read The Hunt last summer and I thought it was the most original and unique novel that I had ever read. I loved the characters and the world that Fukuda created was just so different and intriguing. I'm definitely looking forward to finally seeing what happens next!


What books did you receive this week?

  11. nice ones. I have Gravity. I think also I need to get the Beautiful Creatures books, I see they made a movie called that, thinking its off the book? Looks like it may be. So will want to read at least the firs tone before I see the movie.

  16. Wow awesome haul this week!! Love the Caster Chronicles and can not believe the movie is almost here! I'm about to start reading the last one! So nervous! I read two of the Gone novels and then gave up. Too long for me. I loved Specials and can not wait to read Gravity. I hope you enjoy all of the books you got this week!!! 8) Thank you for dropping by my blog today!

  18. I didn't like Specials. I think the first two books were the best. I haven't yet read Beautiful Creatures...it's just sitting on my bookshelf. I think I need to try Everneath since I'm seeing it all over the blogosphere. Happy reading and thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm a new follower. :)

    I also really enjoyed Beautiful Creatures and Beautiful Darkness -- I have not read the other two books though.

    Happy reading :-)

  21. I can't believe you snagged a copy of all the Beautiful books (besides the last one) for so cheap! That is awesome. I just finished the first novel and enjoyed it. I also hope you like Everneath. I thought that was such a fun read!

    Hope you love all your picks this week!

  25. Awesome books. I grabbed Beautiful Creatures the other week, but haven't had a chance to start it yet. I love the sound of Gravity too, I have it on my TBR shelf, but finding the time to start all these awesome books is hard. Thanks for stopping by and sharing.
