Stacking the Shelves (28 + 29)

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews.

For some reason, I didn't post my book haul for last week! So this week I have a video from last week and a written post for this week. Sorry guys!

Last week's haul:
OH MY GOSH. Ignore the horrible thumbnail, I didn't get to pick it! AHHH

My YouTube channel: http://youtube.com/downrightdystopian


From Giveaways: 

The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey, Arc (Thanks Literary Rambles!)
Fire With Fire by Jenny Han & Siobhan Vivian, Signed Arc (Thanks Books and Sensibility!)



For Review:

The Bane by Keary Taylor (Thanks Keary Taylor Books!)
Contaminated by Em Garner (Thanks EgmontUSA!)
Six Months Later by Natalie D. Richards (Thanks Sourcebooks Fire!)
Countdown by Michelle Rowen (Thanks Harlequin Teen!)

This week I finally joined Netgalley. I don't own any type of e-reader, so I thought that I couldn't read any of Netgalley's books. Turns out, they can also be read on the computer or on an app on any Apple product. Lucky for me, that means I can read them! I'm super excited to finally join and I'll definitely be starting these books really soon.

  1. Be careful. Netgalley and Edelweiss can be very addictive. Come visit me as well.

  2. I got Countdown a few weeks ago, but haven't gotten around to reading it yet. I haven't heard of the others, but I hope you love them all!

  3. The blurb I saw for Six Months Later (somewhere, can't remember) was pretty good. Kinda thought provoking. Countdown might be good too in a actiony kind of way. Nice haul.

  9. Hi Krys, thanks for stopping by my blog. You are so lucky for winning that 5th wave. I've heard so many great things about it. <3

    And I don't know what's happening with NG. It has been 2-3 weeks already since I requested Countdown but I haven't heard feedback from them. *sighs*

  12. I'm intrigued to read Fire by Fire. Good to see The 5th Wave on there, I also can't wait to read it. Great haul :-)

  13. I really loved THE BANE. The second book is much better and if you can get past the whole conflicted sort of love triangle, it's freaking awesome. I still haven't read THE 5TH WAVE yet. I'm glad I'm not the only one! I've heard FIRE WITH FIRE is super good, too. Congratulations on winning both of those. I never win any, so major props to you!

  26. Congrats on joining NetGalley...HOWEVER, be careful. It's easy to request too much and you won't be able to keep up with your reviews. It happened to me:) Great haul, and thanks for stopping by Books, Bones & Buffy!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Wow!! You picked up a lot of books. I hope you enjoy them all. I haven't joined Netgalley, but I have considered it many times. You will have to let us know what you think of it after you try it for a few months.

    Thanks for stopping by my STS!!

  30. I've heard amazing things about Six Months Later, The 5th Wave, and Fire With Fire! I still need to read Burn for Burn and The 5th Wave, and I feel so behind for never having read them because I've heard so many stellar reviews for both of those titles.

    I hope you enjoy! <33

  32. I enjoyed The 5th Wave however I've read a lot of negative reviews for Contaminated from my friends. I'm curious to what you think of this book too.

    Hope you enjoy your books!

  41. Great haul! And I agree, be careful with Netgalley! I was surprised when I got all my requests approved, so now I'm on a strict reading schedule to get all the reviews done. I won't be doing that again lol.

  42. The 5th Wave was just an okay read for me. It wasn't amazing as everyone says it was.
    As for Fire With Fire, I've heard tons of great things about it.
    Enjoy all your lovely books & thanks for stopping by my STS! (:

  43. Ooh! The 5th Wave was really good! And the others sound good too. I hope you enjoy them :)

    And I see everyone's warning about how addictive Netgalley and Edelweiss can be! They really are. It's so easy to request a bunch of books and get totally overwhelmed. I've done that a lot. Request a few books that I think I'll never in a million years get approved for and then I end up being approved for ALL of them! The best thing to do if you have an iPhone or iPad or something is to have the arcs sent to the kindle app because then you don't have to worry about expiration dates on the PDF versions. That was something I found out the hard way and its probably something you've figured out on your own, but just thought I'd pass that along just in case ;)

    Thanks for stopping by Pretty In Fiction!
