Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews where book enthusiasts can show off their newest additions to their collection!
All I can say about this week (21st February – 27th February) is OOPS! I added a WHOPPING twelve books to my collection this week (although two I purchased for other people so maybe these don’t count….. But STILL TOTALLY INSANE!!!
- Magrit – Lee Battersby
A reading copy from work! This looks like a really cute, easy read. It’s about a little girl who lives in a graveyard….. CREEPY! 😛
- Jonathan Unleashed – Meg Rosoff
Another reading copy. I have heard good things about this book – apparently it is VERY funny! I haven’t had much success with Meg Rosoff before, but hopefully this will be the book to change my mind!
- American Blood – Ben Saunders
My boss at work is OBSESSED with this book, and the author. (He does sound pretty amazing, I will admit – so young, and very talented!) So when there was a reading copy up for grabs, I took it with great excitement!
- Map of Bones – Francesca Haig
The sequel to Fire Sermon is finally here! (Well, an ARC!) Cannot wait to get started – hoping to goodness that I remember enough of the first one that I can slide back into the world pretty easily!
- Lab Girl – Hope Jahren
I have heard that this is going to be the next big biographical non-fiction, in the same way H is for Hawk was. And therefore I NEED IT VERY BADLY BECAUSE H IS FOR HAWK IS MY JAM! 😛 (This was another reading copy….)
- Calamity – Brandon Sanderson
IT IS FINALLY IN MY HANDS!!! Cannot wait to get stuck into this! I did purchase this one – Sanderson is one author I will never make myself wait for – he is too AWESOME!
- The Yearbook Committee – Sarah Ayoub
I went to the launch on Thursday night, and thus needed to buy a copy for reading and signing purposes! I have already started this book, and am loving EVERYTHING ABOUT IT!!! I will definitely be reviewing this gorgeous Australian YA!
- The Fireman – Joe Hill
It’s size is very very daunting…… But it is an apocalyptic book, and I’ve been enjoying them lately! So when I saw a reading copy, I picked it up enthusiastically! (Hoping to get through this over the weekend….)
- Cometh the Hour – Jeffrey Archer (x2)
So, I bought both copies of this very attractive book for family members – my grandmother and my father would fight if I didn’t give them each their own copy. They are totally obsessed with the Clifton Chronicles, and I think I will need to get in on the action! I might wait until the end of the year when the last one comes out though – I think buying three copies for the one family might be overkill! 😛
- Hate is Such a Strong Word – Sarah Ayoub
I was at the launch and I COULD NOT resist! I needed this book for signing purposes too. Plus it looks gorgeous, and Sarah was such a cutie-pie and I needed all her books to fangirl over! 🙂
I did also on Thursday get a beautiful manuscript from my internship, but I’m not sure if I’m allowed to share details online….. It is a very exciting May young adult release, and I can’t wait to get reading!
