Stacking the Shelves [50]

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

I know, I's been soooooo long since our last Stacking the Shelves. But we have a good excuse! Becca and I have been in apartment-moving transition for well over a month and have finally unpacked the books and organized them on the shelves. So, I hereby reinstate STS on Nawanda Files!! And now to our haul these past couple weeks:

   Weekly Recap in GIFs

I thought we'd try something new for the weekly recap and make them a little more fun by adding GIFs to it. Not sure how it will turn out but here's my stab at it...

Movie Reviews:
Twin Takedown - The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones

I thinkTwilight is a great move -- for fans. Does it have any other cinematic value? Not really. I thought Mortal Instruments would stand up on its own like The Hunger Games -- meaning non-fans could appreciate it too. But after this, I just don't think so.  C- vs. C+ 

 Lee Daniel's The Butler

A good look at the Civil Rights Movement with scenes that'll make you tear-up, but the lead left me a little...confused. Miscast, perhaps? Forest Whitaker just wasn't right for this role.  B+ 

Book Reviews

One of my all-time favorite couples -- they are an OTP for sure. A story about loss, love, and gymnastics. And a romance filled with a deep emotional connection that YA contemporary lovers will want to read. 4 Stars

Sexy Sundays:
 Ten Tiny Breaths by K.A. Tucker

K.A. Tucker has done an amazing job of bringing two serious subjects together and slamming them into the light, pulling every emotion possible out of the reader. Drunk driving, being one of them. This is a realistic contemporary at its best. 5 Stars

Current Giveaways:
Giveaway time!!! Here's all the ones that are currently running. 

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!


  1. MUAHAHAHAHA. Some Quiet Place. Yes. <3

    SO MANY BOOKS! CRASH INTO YOU! I'm supposed to get that and so I am stalking my mailbox. Yep.

  2. Great Books! So many good ones to read! :D Happy Reading :D


  3. Crash Into You *cries, dies and waves goodbye* seriously--I want want want that book. I hope you girls like it:)

    How to Love has mixed thoughts on my GR friends, but most of them have enjoyed it. The Promise of Something Amazing seems like such a cute read, I hope we all enjoy it:))))

    OH and The Lost Girl? I still haven't read it even though I've wanted to for ages. It has the promise to be all sorts of fantastic and original, but I have no idea why I haven't picked it up. I'll open it on my kindle so it'll be showcased on the front and I won't forget all about it heh :D Happy reading girls! And I hope your moving and transition went well:)

  4. Great books, I can't wait to read White space! :D Happy reading!


  5. Wow you got so many incredible books. I don't think there is a single one that I don't want! Hope you enjoy them all!
    My STS

  6. CRASHHHH INTOOOO YOUUUUU!!!!!!! <3 So pretty! <3

    Anyway... I rally enjoyed EARTHBOUND and SOME QUIET PLACE had one of the most awesome premises ever, the execution was lacking slightly, but I love Kelsey and you should, too!

    I recently got a copy of NANTUCKET BLUE too and I can't wait to read it. And same with INCARCERON. And well...I freaking love THE BEAUTIFUL AND THE CURSED. GARGOYLES! IT HAS GARGOYLES SO IT MUST BE READ! <#

    Yes, that is all. lol <3

    Great haul, you two! Glad everything has gone smoothly with the transition.

  7. Oooh, Fracture! I really want to read that one, especially after reading Hysteria by her. And Panic--oh man, definitely can't wait for that. I really enjoyed Virals, it was interesting for me to go from reading Kathy Reichs adult series to the YA series, but it had some similarities, especially with description. Very nice haul! :D

  8. ALL THE BOOKS! I got Resist and Promise of Shadows The Promise of Amazing a while ago, but that means nothing since I haven't read any of them yet. I just got Earthbound as well - I love the Wings series and can't wait to read this book! Some Quiet Place and Dare You To are some of my favorite books - especially Some Quiet Place. And OMG Crash Into You! :D :D :D :D

    Have a fantastic weekend!

    Check out my STS post!

  9. Awesome haul! I'm so jealous that you got Crash Into You and Panic I'm DYING to read them :)

    Happy Reading!
