Stacking the Shelves

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga! While last week was the Christmas edition, I still had a couple books I wanted to get and some books arrived in the mail :D.

Review

Tavern on the Edge of Time by Peter Darrach

Persistence of Vision

Thank you to Peter Darrach and Liesel Hill for copies of their books! Tavern on the Edge of Time doesn’t have a cover available on Goodreads yet, but it is the third in the Second Skin series and it is a great classic sci-fi series :D. Persistence of Vision is a dystopia brought to us by our own blogger LKHill for her tour :D.

Bought

Beggars Ride Lovely Bones The Girl of Fire and Thorns

Beggars Ride is the third in the Beggars and Sleepers trilogy by Nancy Kress and I got it this week from PaperbackSwap.com so it was actually free, yay! I also stopped over at the local Barnes and Noble as a reward for taking my car in to the shop (because it is nearby >.>) and spotted Lovely Bones in the bargain section. I’ve never had a chance to read it and at $4, how could I say no?? Finally, I realized after making my X-mas wishlist that I wanted Girl of Fire and Thorns, and found a paperback of it at B&N to grab as well ;-).

Any after the holidays shopping for you this week? Maybe some giftcards to spend? :D

  1. Jessica@a GREAT read says:

    OOh nice! These are all pretty new to me. Except several years ago I did read Lovely Bones! Hope you enjoy them all!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by!

    Have a a GREAT weekend!

    • Awesome, I know I’m totally behind the times on that one, but maybe I’ll get nice and caught up one of these days ;-)

  2. I also bought ‘Girl of Fire and Thorns’ some time ago and never read it, but I heard great things about it. I watched ‘Lovely Bones’ as movie and now when I know what happens, I’m not much into reading the book. The rest of the books are unknown to me, but I hope you enjoy them! :)
    As for late holiday shopping, I did buy two books today as late Christmas presents for friends: ‘Little Prince’ and ‘Bite Me’ (it’s a little cookbook with ‘erotic’ recipes – more a prank since recipes as far as I saw just have funny erotic names but are perfectly ordinary :D)
    Here’s list of my new books from this week.

    • I agree that once you watch the movie, it’s less enjoyable to read the book sometimes, especially if there are plot twists and things. I’m super excited to read Girl of Fire and Thorns though, so pretty :D

      Haha, that recipe book sounds awesome! I would just giggle when telling people what the menu was ;-)

  3. The Lovely Bones was decent. I hope you get to read them all soon! My TBR list is growing too long to keep up with lately:)

    • I know the feeling! The holidays were crazy for the TBR pile, but it’s just too tempting to resist new books :D

  4. I haven’t read The Lovely Bones, but I really need to. Great haul. I’ve heard good things about all of them.

    Here’s mine.

    • Exactly, it’s one of those books that has been around for years and I just never got around to… One of these days though :D Thanks for stopping by!

  5. You know, I still haven’t read GIrl of Fire and Thorns. I have only heard amazing things about it. Happy reading :)

    • Me neither ;-D But yes, I’ve heard spectacular things about it, so I had to grab it when we were at the bookstore, plus that cover is so awesome

  6. Interesting books this week. I haven’t read Girl of Fire and Thorns yet, but it is on my TBR list. Happy reading.

    • Yey, I hope you get a chance to read it soon! Haha, I hope I get a chance to read it soon *dies under her TBR pile* Thanks for stopping by!

  7. I’ve heard good things about Girl of Fire and Thorns. I look forward to seeing what you think of it.
    Happy reading!

  8. I hope you enjoy The Lovely Bones, I really didn’t like it but I’ve heard other people have very different opinions to mine. Mostly the ending put me off. Enjoy your reads :)

    My haul.

    • It’ll be interesting, mostly I felt like it was one of those new classics that I really should read just to know what everyone is talking about :)

  9. Fire and Thorns is one of my top favorite books ever! It is just so spectacular! I hope you enjoy it!
