Stacking the Shelves [2]

Stacking the Shelves is an event hosted by Tynga's Reviews where bloggers share the books they bought, won, borrowed, or received. These are the books we've gotten throughout the past two weeks.


Everyday I tag in to look through the Kindle Daily Deals. Because I was on vacation for a week without internet access, I missed those deals. (A tragedy, I know). So in the past two weeks I've only bought these books through Amazon Kindle daily deals:

Kiss & Make Up - Katie D. Anderson
No Peace for the Damned (The Damned Series, #1) - Megan Powell
Sketchy (Bea Catcher Chronicles, #1) - Olivia Samms

I bought The Immortal Circus: Act One a few months ago, so it seemed appropriate to get book two since it was only $1.99 on Kindle (Act One is only $3.99).

The Immortal Circus: Act Two (Cirque des Immortels, #2) - A.R. Kahler

I've also picked up the habit of frantically buying free ebooks on Amazon (as if I have nothing else to read...) I might have a problem. These are the free Kindle books I got in the past two weeks:

Amethyst (Guardian, #1) - Heather Bowhay
Banished from Grace (Fall from Grace, #1) - Aria Williams
Broken Butterflies (Broken Butterflies, #1) - Shadow Stephens
Cobbogoth (Cobbogoth, #1) - Hannah L. Clark
Crow (Prequel, Episode One, and Episode Two) - Alex Owens
Dark Matter Heart (Cor Griffin Bloodsuckers, #1) - Nathan Wrann
Deadly Kisses - Kerri Cuevas
Deja' Voodoo - Leslie Brown
Dreaming of Beauty - Kristen White
Forgotten - Fay Cunningham
The Game - Shane Scollins
The Glass Wall (Return of the Ancients, #1) - Madison Adler
Goddess Legacy (Goddess Series, #1) - M.W. Muse
Green (Life Force Trilogy, #1) - S. Briones Lim
The Keeper and the Rune Stone (The Black Ledge Series, #1) - Paige W. Pendleton
The Locket (The Locket, #1) - K.J. Bell
Lost (Lost & Found, #1) - Nadia Simonenko

The Survivors (The Survivors, #1) - Amanda Havard
Sweet Oblivion (Sweet, #1) - Bailey Ardisone
Veiled Eyes (Lake People, #1) - C.L. Bevill

I really need to stop getting so many books when I can't read them that fast... I think I hoard ebooks. But it's only because I don't want to pass over any gems! Or at least I'll just tell myself that. Yeah... Anyway, I also bought The Midnight Heir because I'm a sucker for Magnus Bane as well as Octavian's Undoing and Raksha.

Octavian's Undoing (Sons of Judgment, #1) - Airicka Phoenix
Raksha (Blood and Fire, #1) - Frankie Rose
The Midnight Heir (The Bane Chronicles, #4) - Cassandra Clare & Sarah Rees Brennan


The past few weeks have been oddly busy for me (I usually just bum around all day) and I've barely had a chance to sleep in my own bed, nevermind go out and buy books (I don't go crazy with ebooks like Kiersten does. I tend to go for physical copies), and as a result, my only purchases for the past two weeks have been The Midnight Heir, an eagerly awaited volume of the Bane Chronicles, and Isolation, a mini-book in the Partials sequence that I had to read before starting the next book.

The Midnight Heir (The Bane Chronicles, #4) - Cassandra Clare & Sarah Rees Brennan
Partials (Partials Sequence #0.5) - Dan Wells


Like Noor, my last few weeks have been unprecedentedly busy, so I haven't bought much (I'm also a physical copy kind of girl). Although, I'm also not a huge fan of buying books that I'll finish in a few hours and just put on my bookshelf (library kinda girl holla), I do succumb to the occasional impulsive Wegmans buy. I'd read a review of Where'd You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple in the Times and recognized it while scanning the shelves for a Danielle Steele novel to flip through while my mom shopped. My impulsive Wegmans buys are not always successful, but this one surely was.

Where'd You Go, Bernadette - Maria Semple

Also, Kiersten sent me a digital copy of Zoo by Tara Elizabeth and the first episode of the Debt Collector by Susan Kaye Quinn.

Zoo (The Enclosure Chronicles, #1) - Tara Elizabeth
Delirium (Debt Collector, #1) - Susan Kaye Quinn


Haha. Books. I've been out of the loop so no books for me. I've been busy reading and attempting to write. So that's why Slaughterhouse Five, Beautiful Darkness, and a whole mess of books are around me that I've had for a while and not read. In lieu of new books:

Here's a poem
The books that I haven't bought this week

With their uncracked spines on dustless shelves
Like a thousand planets stuffed in a supermarket aisle
While I'm in bed wasting another day in a heat wave
Half reading six books at once
And it's no excuse
But I'm sorry anyway.
