Stacking the Shelves [51]

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

Only a few this week! I should go on a book buying ban, but pre-orders are so hard to pass up. *sigh* at least they're pretty :)



Bought

Doon (Doon, #1)   Two Boys Kissing   The Beginning of Everything

   Weekly Recap in GIFs

Book Reviews:
The Iron Traitor by Julie Kagawa


For fans of this series, this one doesn't disappoint. The magical journey continues, and the ending, literally, will have you crying or too stunned to do much of anything. Fans will want to read this one asap!  There is a mother-of-all TWISTS people!  4 Stars 

 Waterfell by Amalie Howard



Major insta-love in the beginning forced Rissa to think more about a hot boy than her destiny, which put a damper on the conflict and slowed down the action. The plot would suit fans of Of Poseidon and The Vicious Deep. This just wasn't for me. 2 Stars 

Sexy Sundays:
 Deeper We Fall by Chelsea M. Cameron


Deeper We Fall is not the typical high school drinking mistake story. This book actually touches on the painful truth (fictionally) of excessive drinking and the repercussions of hiding the results and responsibilities of it. Moving. Romantic. Beautiful. 5 Stars


Cover Reveal:
Addicted for Now by Krista & Becca Ritchie

Okay, this is kind of biased, since it's our book. And I'm not really sure how to gif it so...


Cute guy winking!!! YES!

Also, here's the cover in case you missed it:

Giveaway time!!! Here's the one that's currently running.

  1. Nice haul of books. I'm sorry to hear that Waterfell didn't meet your expectations, but maybe it will suit me. You got a lot of interesting books that are way different than my tastes.
    Come check out my haul as well.

    1. For the most part, I think a lot of people have been loving Waterfell, so you may definitely like it. Especially if you're a fan of the current water-themed books that are in YA :D

  2. I also bought The Beginning of Everything because everyone seems to have loved it. Two Boys Kissing is another one that's on my wish-list.
    I just got Waterfell this week and now I'm a little disappointed to hear that it wasn't as great. I'll go into the book lowering my expectations.
    Your new cover is hot! ;)

    Enjoy your lovely books! :)

    1. Thanks, Nick! I think lowering your expectations will definitely help ;) My sis bought The Beginning of Everything for the same reason! She already started reading Two Boys Kissing and said it's very different as writing style goes, but I think she likes it so far.

    1. Lol! Krista bought The Beginning of Everything because she had heard pretty good reviews for it, and she thought it looked interesting. She'll probably be the one to read it. She bought Doon for me, and she got Two Boys Kissing for the same reason as TBE :DD

    2. ugh, Becca, I related to TBoE so much that I cried! I actually got personal in the review it meant so much to me *gasp* must see opinions soon!

    3. I'm definitely going to go read your review! Most of my contemporary time, I spend on ARCs, but Krista really wants to read this one, so she bought it :D I'll let her know you loved it!

    1. I usually love fantasies, so hopefully Doon is up my alley more so than Waterfell. I know the feeling of having so many books to read. My pile is about to topple over! And I read pretty slow, which doesn't help.

  13. I've heard good things about Doon lately, so I kinda want to read that one. I also want to read The Beginning of Everything. The winking guy and the Gifs for Waterfell are so cool. It's so easy to just watch them over and over and over . . . :)
