Stacking The Shelves #4


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

BOUGHT

Everlost by Neal Shusterman
Unwind by Neal Shusterman
The Unwritten Rule by Elizabeth Scott
 

The Maze Runner by James Dashner
Pretties by Scott Westerfeld
 

I know I said I wasn't too interested in the Uglies series so it might be a bit surprising that only a few days later I've purchased Pretties. It was only $5 at the book store though so I thought why not? The next two in the series were also there I'm in no rush to read them. I've been wanting to read Everlost, Unwind and The Unwritten Rule for some time too and was happy to see them there for the same price as well (: The Maze Runner finally arrived from fishpond.co.nz (not ordering there again). It took about 2 months to arrive, and it won't stay straight because it arrived bended... not only that but it's a super floppy version so the bend is pretty in there... "/ I'm so OCD with books I spent so long trying to straighten it... haha.

What did you get this week? (:

  5. I love Unwind! It is such an emotional read. I hope you enjoy it too. Sorry to hear about the bend in The Maze Runner. I also hate it when that happens. Hope you enjoy!

  6. Oh no! It seems we both got crappily shipped books this week :/ They should seriously label book packages as 'fragile' when they're being loaded onto planes and stuff! But still, i REALLY want to read The Maze Runner series since so many people have loved it! And you got UNWIND! I'm so jealous haha, I seriously don't think I've seen a single person who's disliked it so I'm going to need to get it REAL soon! Though I've heard it's absolute torture to your brain xD Anyway, amazing haul, Kim! I hope you enjoy every single one of them! :)

  7. I've heard great things about The Maze Runner, even though I have yet to try it! And also, I am totally with you on that bent-book thing! I got an ARC, and it bent after I opened the package, so I spend like an hour trying to flatten it out! :)

  9. I also have Pretties sitting on my shelf for a while now, had to move it back to make place for review books...
    I'm sorry to hear about the shipping incident. I feel like crying when the book arrives all creased.
    Happy reading! I'm a new follower.

  22. Totally understand the straight-spined-books ocd. I always get depressed when I find out I've bent my book's spine. And I loved the Uglies series, so I hope you keep going with them. Unwind was freakishly awesome. I can't wait for the second book which is supposed to come out later this year. I've been meaing to check out The Maze Runner. Happy reading!

    Thanks for visiting my haul.

  31. I've never read The Uglies series. I did read his Midnighters series and wasn't all that impressed with it so I decided to skip on his others. But I seriously wante Everlost! Lucky! Haha.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

    P.S If you have NetGalley, One Moment is on there and I'm pretty sure they've made it as 'read now' instead of 'request'.

  32. I wasn't too rushed to read Pretties, but I'm surprised at how much I liked it and how often I reference it! I still haven't finished the series yet, but still, hope you enjoy it! That sucks about your Maze Runner copy, I'm sorry! :(

  40. LOVE The Maze Runner, such a great series. And Elizabeth Scott's books are always so fun/cute.

  41. I really want to read Unwind, and I LOVE The Maze Runner series and the Uglies series. I'm sad that you didn't like Uglies too much, and I have to say that Pretties was my least favorite book of the series, so I'm not sure if you'll enjoy it more than Uglies. But I hope you like it, as well as all the others you got this week! Happy reading! ;)
