Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews where we share what we added to our shelves this week.
This week I didn’t get around to visiting many blogs or responding to comments because I sprained my wrist from boxing. It was quite painful and difficult to work but I’m glad to say I can type now! So I’ve been on a commenting frenzy!
So I went back to the Lifeline bookfest on sale day because I had the chance to and all books were half price! Lots of the good stuff was gone though, so I definitely enjoyed it. And I’m now going to deal with my “books on the floor” situation by getting a new bookshelf and doing some reshuffling of furniture, yay!
Review copies – physical
The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski – I have been waiting for this one to come out in paperback for ages, seeing as the beautiful hardback has those bevelled edges which I abhor. Can’t wait to read this soon!
The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet – After loving the Lizzie Bennet Diaries series on Youtube, I was so excited to find more in the LB universe!
Spark by Rachael Craw – I’ve been chatting with the author on Twitter who is really lovely, and will be participating in the blog tour later this month. So far, I’m really enjoying this book with a unique, well thought out concept about Sparks, People who protect them called Shields, and people who are trying to harm them called Strays.
Apple and Rain by Sarah Crossan – This came in the most gorgeous and thoughtful package, with a pack of tissues and a warning sticker on it! I really enjoyed the package and the tissues are appreciated for this tearjerker.
Thank you Walker Books Australia, Simon & Schuster Australia and Bloomsbury Australia for sending me these review books!
Purchased – Lifeline Bookfest Haul Part 2
All of these books pictured were $2.50! I couldn’t NOT get them. Sadly, I accidentally got some doubles >< oops.
Stray by Rachel Vincent
Rogue by Rachel Vincent
White Witch Black Curse by Kim Harrison – I hate this cover, it looks so weird!
Hexed by Kevin Hearne – I didn’t realise it was the 2nd in the series.
The Calling by Kelley Armstrong – I had a paperback of this already but couldn’t resist this awesome hardback!
Pride by Rachel Vincent – I had this already in the smaller format -_-‘
Ascend by Amanda Hocking
Lost in Time by Melissa de la Cruz – have most of this series on my shelf, haven’t read yet.
The Secret of Ella and Micha by Jessica Sorensen – This is brand new, there seemed to be a few there!
Tiger’s Destiny by Colleen Houck
Taken by Storm by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
Steadfast by Claudia Gray – I think I mixed this up into my pile accidentally from last week’s haul
Rebel Angels by Libba Bray – Yay, I only need the last book to this series and I’ve collected them all! This series is really great guys.
Second Grave on the Left by Darynda Jones
Something Deadly This Way Comes by Kim Harrison
Working Stiff by Rachel Caine – Was chuffed to find this, especially after picking up the 2nd book last time.
Daylighters by Rachel Caine
I won Kelly’s REBEL by Amy Tintera giveaway and also swapped some books with her and got Afterworld by Lynnette Lounsbury. She also sent me a copy of Eat Pray Love, which I gave to my sister because I already have a copy. Thank you Ms Diva Booknerd!
The 2nd trailer for The Giver is out – and it is brilliant. One of my favourite books converted into a movie that looks like it’s going to be awesome!
The Delirium TV series trailer – was launched as well. It looks pretty cool but I’m not sure how it will translate into a series. I’m also not sure about the female lead.
Brisbane Writers’ Festival has a YA festival on Saturday, 6 September 2014 – And the guests are Laini Taylor (USA), Isobelle Carmody, Sean Williams, Ananda Braxton-Smith and Will Kostakis! LAINI TAYLOR GUYS. SHE’S A ROCKSTAR. AND I WILL GET TO MEET HER.
Penguin Teen Australia completed their TFIOS Marathon Challenge – Where they visited cities across Australia to watch the movie in opening week. We joined them in Brisbane and it was a really great experience watching it with fans!
