Stacking the Shelves + Weekly Recap in GIFs [52]

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

Decatur Book Fest last weekend means more buys! I will be going on a book buying ban soon.



Bought

Reboot (Reboot, #1)    Siege and Storm (The Grisha, #2)   All Our Yesterdays    Every Day (Every Day, #1)

We went to the Decatur Book Fest and picked up copies of Reboot, Siege and Storm, and Every Day to get signed by the authors. And then I succumbed to the hype and pre-ordered All Our Yesterdays, which came this week! I've started reading it and it's already really good.

Traded via YA Book Exchange

Pretty Girl-13

Thanks to Felicia for this awesome trade!

I want to preface this week's recap by mentioning how hard 3 Star ratings are to GIF. Most GIFS depict extreme love it or hate reactions. Surprisingly, it's difficult to find some mediocre ones out there...so these may not be the best this week...just warning you.


BOOK REVIEWS

WILD CARDS BY SIMONE ELKELES

Derek + Steamy Scenes

Love/Hate Relationship to the Extreme 


If you love relationships with hot-and-cold attitudes that constantly get together and break up and get together and make out...with more making out. Then you'll love this. The sexy scenes are steamy. The male lead is very compelling. But the romance won't fit everyone's tastes. Sadly, it didn't completely fit mine.  3 Stars 


SEXY SUNDAYS

UNDONE BY SHANNON RICHARD



Undone is a feel good romance. The male lead tended to be a fix-it kind of man and was the one to help Paige throughout. The few twists made it worth reading, but in comparison to the other New Adult reads, Undone may be lacking a little originality. 3 Stars

  1. Oohh some awesome books this week! I loved Siege and Storm and Pretty Girl-13, both amazing books <3
    And I'm really looking forward to All Our Yesterdays, I've heard so much about it! Reboot sounds amazing too, and I need to get to it soon. I wasn't a huge fan of Every Day, but I hope you enjoy it more than I did :P
    My haul

  5. I'm glad you're enjoying ALL OUR YESTERDAYS! I've... been having trouble with it, and I may not continue, but we'll see! And yay for a signed SIEGE AND STORM! That series is my favorite. Happy reading, you two!

  6. PRETTY GIRL 13. I almost bought this yesterday but I'm on a book buying ban until next month because I have to buy textbooks soon. BOO to textbooks.

    I super want to read Reboot and All Our Yesterdays. SIEGE AND STORM IS GLORIOUS and I really enjoyed Every Day.

    1. Yes, boo to textbooks. They are WAY too expensive. And the worst is when the professor makes you buy THEIR textbook. It's like "here, you want my money *pulls out wallet*"

  7. Shadow & Bone is finally available in paperback here, so I'm hoping to get it soon, and then Siege & Storm after that. Hope you enjoy your books!

  9. Interesting week. I must say that I'm in the minority about All Our Yesterdays and I didn't like it. Heard good things about David Leviathan's books. Come visit me as well.

    1. Wow, lots of people have come out and said that they didn't like it recently. I'm surprised to hear it, but I'm glad for the honesty. No book can be loved by all (except maybe the Fault in our Stars).

  10. I loved All Our Yesterdays! hope you enjoy it.

  11. You've got some amazing books this week!! I need to read Shadow and Bone soon as I have both that and Siege and Storm. I'm waiting for a rainy day so I can get my blanked and hot chocolate and just read :) I'm not sure about Wild Cards, I mean I do want to read it but hot and cold relationships drive me insane. We'll see.
    Great haul :)

    1. Ooh, I love rainy day reading! Those are seriously the best. Hot and cold relationships bug me as well, so I probably won't read it either. I'm sure Krista will throw the book up for trade on YA Book Exchange so someone else can enjoy it :D

      Delete
  12. Yay for Siege and Storm and All Our Yesterdays! You'll not be disappointed by those two, let me tell you. Every Day and Reboot were pretty average reads in my opinion, but I hope you enjoy them still. Looking forward to your reviews!

    Haha, I've been on a book ban since July. It's been torturous, but you get used to it... kind of. ;)

    1. I don't think I could survive a book ban. I have such an addiction. Maybe if I was allowed to at least trade books. That's only a couple dollars, but cold turkey would be way too hard for me :D

  13. Awesome haul. I liked Pretty Girl-13 hope you like the story too. Would love to get my hands on All Our Yesterday :)

    Happy Reading!

    1. Thanks, Shane! I can't wait to read Pretty Girl-13. Krista was going to, but I may have to fight her on it with everyone saying how much they liked it.

  14. I'm super excited that I'll be able to get my Shadow & Bone and Siege & Storm copies signed in May! So far away but I love those books. Cristin Terrill will be there too. So glad you are liking her book!

  15. I haven't read Shadow and Bone yet, but everyone seems to really love that series! Pretty Girl 13 also sounds pretty interesting, I'll definitely be adding that to my TBR. Enjoy all your books :)

    1. I haven't started it yet either, but I feel the same way. Krista and everyone else seem to love it, and I know i'm missing something good. Gotta get on the bandwagon sooner or later ;D

  18. YAY for Decatur!!
    I saw All Our Yesterdays at the store today, held it, put it in the buggy, put it back. LOL I just couldn't justify more book buying after Decatur...sigh.

    1. The books at Decatur were so expensive! And if we didn't pre-order All Our Yesterdays, we prob would have done the same thing ;) I think Krista got Reboot at the fest for like 20 bucks which is crazy!

  19. Very excellent stack of books this week. I really enjoyed Every Day. Pretty Girl-13 was very different from what I thought it was going to be. That's too bad that the books were so expensive. Happy Reading!
