Stacking the Shelves [20]

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews featuring books added to my shelves and sharing my excitement for them.

For Review:

Big Thanks to Amulet Books this week! 

My twins sister and I also decided that Splintered has one of the most beautiful covers. So naturally we took the book on a sightseeing tour around UGA. I challenged Becca to collect evidence of the #SplinteredSightings as seen below.

It's fair to say we geeked out over the book. But who can blame us? It's amazing!


Stormdancer (The Lotus War, #1)
I was super excited for this book so of course I pre-ordered it. When it came in the mail I squealed and then I almost cried. It's a tall book. I have a pet peeve with tall books because they feel like they take me forever to read and they sit awkwardly on my shelf. I'm still excited to read it, but I can't help but be a little bummed too. 

What's new on your shelves this week? Have you read any of these books? Comment below and don't forget to leave your links!

  3. Splintered does look beautiful! I love how you guys took it everywhere with you. That's what I did with Rebel Heart by Moira Young (2nd book in the Blood Red Road series). I ordered it from amazon UK, and I got it at the end of August, when the U.S. release isn't until October. :)

    Thanks for sharing!

    1. I'm so jealous that you have Rebel Heart! I'm dying (dying!) to read it. I'll have to look out to see how you liked it :)

    2. So, I totally know you and Krista's feeling of happiness. I just went to my local bookseller to make sure I can get a copy of The Casual Vacancy on Thursday, and she had just gotten a pretty package in the mail. It just so happened to be an ARC of Splintered! It also came with a promotional golden key necklace... and she gave it to me! I kid you not, I shrieked. I'm such a nerd, I still love when I get ARC's. The cover is even more breathtaking in person! :)

  8. Wow that is a GORGEOUS cover! Seriously. <3 And LOL at taking the book on a little trip. It's like one of those gnomes. Very cute!

  9. Splintered definitely does have one of the most beautiful covers ever. It's total eye and shelf candy! I'm afraid of buying it because although I I'm whoring out over the cover, I'm not entirely sure about the storyline. I hope you end up loving it, write a raving review and then convince me to buy it. Haha!

  10. OMG I'm soooo jealous of you right now : I'm dying to read Splintered, it sounds amazing and the cover is definitely one of my favourite for this year !! I can't wait to read your review !!
