Stacking the Shelves #9

Stacking the Shelves

I’m joining up my previous feature, Buried in Books, with Tynga‘s Stacking the Shelves! This way I can join in more regularly with everyone :D.

For Review:

Entangled by Nikki Jefford  Heart of the Dragon's Realm by Karalyn Lee

I’m pumped! I hadn’t realized Entangled was still available on Netgalley, so when I saw that someone else had gotten it through there, I had to try :D. I’m still small enough that it’s pretty hit or miss with what I get approved for, but I got Entangled and Heart of the Dragon’s Realm! My Kindle is full to bursting!


Graceling by Kristin Cashore Summon the Keeper by Tanya Huff Spider's Bite by Jennifer Estep

So I had a lovely day this week when I arrived at my desk at work to find Graceling and Summon the Keeper waiting for me! My friend had been meaning to bring in Graceling for a while to let me borrow it, but Summon the Keeper (which I’ve never heard of) is just an added bonus book that she thinks I will like! Isn’t it great to have friends with great taste in books :D. I also finally got Spider’s Bite from inter-library loan, so I started on that as soon as I got my grubby paws on it! I mean… I very dignifiedly started reading it all prim-like >.> <.<.

What did you get this week??

  4. Shannon @ Readergirl Reviews a Teen Book says:

    Great haul. I’ve heard really good things about Graceling but I haven’t read it yet. I may have to get it.

    • Thanks for stopping by! I just barely started Graceling and love it already, so I definitely recommend grabbing a copy if you can :D

  5. Awesome new books! I got Entangled a few weeks ago but I haven’t read it yet. I hope we both enjoy it! You are going to LOVE Graceling! It’s such an amazing book. Unfortunately Fire isn’t as good (and I haven’t read Bitterblue yet), but Graceling is sooo awesome.

    Have a great week! I’m a new Networked Blogs follower. Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier. :)

  6. Oooh cool, I got Entangled too ♥ And I got Graceling a few weeks ago…Spider Bite & Heart in the Dragon’s Realm are both on my reading list. I love how we have such similar tastes in books :D Enjoy all your goodies Anya, thanks for sharing & for stopping by my StS earlier!!

    • It’s so much fun to find bloggers that like the same books as me, means that I can trust your recommendations ;-) Thanks for stopping by Micheline!

  7. I totally want to start that Jennifer Estep series as soon as I have time. I think that might be my next UF series I start. I love the covers and they sound fantastic. Great haul this week and thank you for visiting my blog!

    • They are pretty darn fun, I have to say :D I might have blushed a bit when reading though, if you know what I mean ;-) Thanks for stopping by :D

  8. I got Entangled too! Nikki Jefford is really nice:) I’m a new follower, thanks for stopping by my STS!

  10. Graceling is one of my all time favorite books! I hope you enjoy it =)

  11. Graceling was really, really good. I hope you enjoy reading it! I keep seeing Jennifer Estep’s books around; I’m going to have to check them out one day.

    Thanks for stopping by and following! Followed you back. :)

    • I’m sure I will, given when everyone is saying ;-). I just finished Spider’s Bite, and if you are okay with some rather not PG material, they are fun reads so far :D

      Thanks for stopping by and following :D

  12. Graceling is a wonderful book. So are the other books in the Graceling Realm series. Fire is my personal favourite.

    I’ve never heard of Heart of the Dragon’s Realm before. I might have to try and score it on netgalley myself :D

    Thanks for stopping by my StS post

    • I listened to Fire on audio a couple weeks ago and loooooooved it! The narrator was freaking fantastic in addition to it being a wonderful book! It made me even more excited to read Graceling and Bitterblue :D

      Thanks for stopping by here as well :D

  13. Yay for Graceling!! I’ve heard such awesome things about it. :) I hope you enjoy all of your books this week!!

  14. I got Entangled too! Maybe, last week? Week before? I can’t remember exactly but it does look really good. And yay for Graceling! I hope you enjoy it! :]

  15. Love your blog and am following back. I just got Spiders Bite but have not read it yet. Thanks for stopping by.

  16. These all sound like great reads! Graceling is SO good! Love a good kick-ass heroine, and the story is just heart-breaking – I hope you love it too!
    Enjoy reading! and thanks so much for stopping by and following too! Following you back :) Your blog is adorable!

    • I’m so excited to get a chance to read Graceling! I loved Fire when I listened to it on audio :D

      Thanks for stopping by!

  17. Thanks for stopping by my STS! I’ve heard Graceling is amazing. New follower =)

  18. Jenni @ Alluring Reads says:

    Entangled was so good, I really enjoyed that one. These all look great, I hope you enjoy each and every one of them!

  19. I was also surprised to get Entangled last week! I’ve had Graceling on my shelf for about a year but always put off reading it because for some idiotic reason, I bought the German translation and I don’t like translations >.< (I always translate it all back to English in my head and get annoyed at how bad the German version is)
    I'v heard tons about the Spider series but have yet to check it out. Followed you back and am looking forward to your review :)

    P.S.: The Edelweiss site is kinda confusing, more complicated than NetGalley. I'm sort of figuring it out as I go along and never expected to be accepted for the ARC!

    • Oo, you have to try out Graceling when you get the chance! I understand though, I’m doing the same thing with Divergent, books I own just keep getting put off for review copies and library books!

      Thanks for warning me about Edelweiss! I don’t really need more review books right now anyway, haha!

  20. Entangled is publishing a lot of great things, I really need to check out more of their titles! Happy reading! :)

  21. Thanks for stopping by my STS!
    & ohh, you’ll enjoy Graceling. Katsa is such a strong character. (:

  22. Yay Graceling! We love that book! It is so good!

    • Awesome! I’m not sure how soon I’m going to be able to get to it with all the other books that need to be read, but hopefully soon :D

  23. Awesome haul :) !! I really liked Entangled and I look forward to know what you think of it. I was a bit disappointed in Graceling but I’m hoping you’ll enjoy it. Happy reading. I’m a new follower !!

    • Yey! I’ve heard good things about Entangled, so I’m really excited to have gotten it from Netgalley :D Thanks for following!

  24. I adore Graceling! I hope you love it! I am intrigued by Entangled!

    • I’m sure I will, I started it when I was stuck on a plane and wanted to keep going, but the library books demand my attention!

  25. choijeneul says:

    Great haul! I won’t be reading Entangled till before it gets archived next month, but I can’t wait! And I’ve seen Graceling at a used bookstore twice already but I want to buy it new with its sequels <3

    Thanks for dropping by my blog and following! I followed back :)

    – Kazhy @ My Library in the Making

    • Oh crap, that means I need to read faster doesn’t it?? Thanks for warning me!! So many books to read!

      Thanks for stopping by :D

  26. All I got this week were more articles to read for work. But I am really enjoying Time Mends!!
