Stacking The Shelves #3


Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's review where we showcase our new books for the week.

I don't know how I am able to buy so many new books a week considering the fact that I only work 8 hours a week and my To-Read pile is already so big. I got two exciting new books this week though :D

BOUGHT

Divergent by Veronica Roth
Magic Study by Maria V. Snyder
Elixir by Hilary Duff


Dreamland by Sarah Dessen
The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen

BORROWED
The Forest of Hands and Teeth
by Carrie Ryan
Cryer's Cross by Lisa McMann
Trance by Linda Gerber


I finally got my hands on Divergent! I've been waiting and waiting for it to arrive in the mail for so long! I can't wait to get into it. Magic Study also finally arrived and I'm looking forward to continuing the Study series (The first book in the series was Poison Study which I wrote a review on). Elixir was only about $3 when I bought it. I don't have high expectations for it but I was curious and it was pretty cheap. As for the Sarah Dessen books, I really only wanted The Truth About Forever but Dreamland came for free with it so that was awesome :P (I just read synopsis for it though and it sounds good!) 

I ended up borrowing a few books from the library this week also. First is The Forest of Hands & Teeth which I've been wanting to read for years, Trance which has some good reviews, and Cryer's Cross which I just picked up randomly (the reviews aren't looking so good for it though).

What did you get this week?

  4. You got a bunch of good ones! I really enjoyed Divergent, and Elixir was surprisingly good too. Hmm, I'm surprised about the reviews on Cryer's Cross though, I just read it last month and loved it!

  6. I have been wanting to read The Forest of Hands and Teeth for forever too. I like Sarah Dessen but she is not an auto-buy author for me. I do enjoy her work though. And Divergent was great---enjoy!

  17. Wow, those books sound amazing! I've heard awesome things about Poison Study and I've read Divergent (amazing, but I guess you already knew that) and The Truth About Forever (really, really liked it!). And I feel like buying all those books does contribute to our education, so no worries about spending too much :P

I loved them and can honestly say that I'd never read a zombie book before! SO good! Divergent is just plain fun adventure from beginning to end! Enjoy!
