Stacking the Shelves

Stacking the Shelves

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Team Tynga's Reviews.  You can find their blog here:  This weekly meme, which Tynga's team posts on Saturdays, is all about sharing the books that you received or purchased over the previous week.  This week is larger than usual thanks to a box o'books from Allison at Good Books and Good Wine!  About half of the books immediately went to work with me and will be given to teens; there were some I hadn't read yet so I'll read those first before they go into work.


The Twistrose Key by Tone Almhjell (from GBGW)
Lucky Us by Amy Bloom  (egalley.  I think this might be Adult-With-Teen-Appeal?  Not crazy about the cover, but you know what they say...)
The Diviners by Libba Bray  (From GBGW and signed!  I've already read this, so it went into work yesterday.)
The Ice Cream Queen of Orchard Street by Susan Jane Gilman (egalley)
The Time Fetch by Amy Herrick (From GBGW and signed!)
Blue Notes by  Carrie Lofty  (Judging this book entirely by it's cover I'm SO. EXCITED.)
How to Build a Girl by Caitlin Moran
Just Like Fate by Cat Patrick and Suzanne Young (From GBGW!)
Nick and Tesla's Super-Cyborg Gadget Glove by Bob Pflugfelder with Steve Hockensmith  (egallay.  I'm pretty excited about this little series!  I know it's younger than YA, but I have a nephew who I think would love these.  If I like this, he's totally getting them for Christmas.  And who wouldn't love a book by Pflugfelder & Hockensmith?  Can you repeat that last question with a serious face?)
The Beginning of Everything by Robyn Schneider (from GBGW!)
Somebody Up There Hates You by Hollis Seamon (From GBGW!  Signed!)
Ink by Amanda Sun (From GBGW! Signed!)

Little Fish by Ramsey Beyer (From GBGW!  I'm so excited about this.  I don't remember hearing about it before this box o'books, but it looks really good!  And it's a finished hardcover.  Seeing the girl on the cover holding the fish in the bowl makes me think of What About Bob and Bob carrying his fish in a jar when he traveled.)
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare  (From GBGW!  I've already read this, so this finished copy went straight to teens at work.)
Bewitching by Alex Flinn  (From GBGW!)
The Night is Watching by Heather Graham (From GBGW!  Signed!  I know nothing about Heather Graham except she's Adult and has a loyal fan base so she should be good!)
The Resurrectionist by E.B. Hudspeth  (From GBGW!  A gorgeous finished hardcover.  This looks SO. FREAKING. AWESOME. ya'll!)
Beauty's Beast by Jenna Kernan  (From GBGW!  Signed!  I think this is the first Adult Romance I've ever owned.  Hmm.  New territory...)
Delirium by Lauren Oliver  (From GBGW!  This went straight to work, to teens.  I actually liked this one.  The second & third in the trilogy?  .... )
Then Came You by Jennifer Weiner (From GBGW!  I read Good in Bed a few years ago and it was pretty good writing.  I'm looking forward to giving this a go.)

(Who doesn't love free books?  Go use your local library.)
The Public Library: A Photographic Essay by Robert Dawson (Yes.  I, a public library employee checked out a book about the public library from my public library.  Nerd alert.)


  1. The Diviners is SO GOOD! I can't wait for the second book to come out.
    Yay for City of Bones - I've been catching up with the series for the release of the new book and I'm now about to start with book 4.
    Happy reading and have a good weekend :)

  2. Looking forward to your review of Bewitching. Still don't know if I should read it :/
    My Catch

  3. Lots of goodies! Delirium was so amazing. One of my fav series. I love Sliding Doors and really want to read Just Like Fate! Enjoy!
