Stacking The Shelves/Showcase Sunday (2)


Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews and Showcase Sunday is a meme hosted by Books, Biscuits and Tea.
These memes are is a replacement of The Story Siren's In My Mailbox.

Stacking the Shelves and Showcase Sunday make a place to showcase your new books,
whether you obtained them through the post or otherwise.

 Some wonderful books came into my home this week! I received 1.4 (I really need to read 0.4, another book that's been waiting for me on my shelf!) and a big package including Life, Above All, Girl about Time (I am SO excited to check this out) as well as Numbers, Stolen (Which I read last year and enjoyed) as well as The Maze Runner. I'd also like to sincerely thank Debbie Hope for sending me a copy of Lunar Regeneration.

 I made three swaps this week and received Struck, Goddess Interrupted (I still need to read the first one, but I couldn't resist the cover) and Love & Other Four Letter Words.

I'm giving massive thanks and lots of hugs to the lovely Vickie (Go visit her awesome blog, ComaCalm's Corner) for sending me some really cool book postcards as well as copies of Texas Gothic, Two Way Street and When You Were Mine!

 I'm kind of embarrassed to admit it, but I caved in and just had to buy the other two instalments of the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed - whilst they are really quite bad, they're also very addictive! I ordered Getting the Boot a month or so ago to read when I'm on holiday to Rome as it's set there - so I'll be reviewing that in July. I also received my pre-order paperback of Obsidian, though I'm pretty disappointed with the cover (it's just too green)!

That's everything from this week! I feel bad that I haven't posted much this week, but I've been pretty busy and reading Masquerade for the upcoming Heven and Hell Tour - so sorry for the lack of posts, I promise that I'll be posting more reviews very soon!

  1. Lol I agree about the Obsidian paperback, I was like IT'S TOOO GREEEN! I was expecting Daemon's face to not be so green-ish and much clearer but other than that I still really like the cover!

    Awesome books you got this week! I want to read Struck and Texas Gothic lol

  18. I've been wanting to read Texas Gothic for a while now. I'm currently reading Numbers, not really enjoying it though, the use of the word "mate" is making me rip my hair out...

  20. What a lot of books! I absolutely loved 0.4 when I read it last year so I need to get my hands on 1.4 as well. EVery one seems to give in to Fifty eventually! So far I've not picked them up but it's only a matter of time! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Definitely read 0.4 when you can! It's really good...I really want to read Obsidian and When You Were Mine when I can. You always get really good books-I'm surprised you have space for them all!
    Enjoy them!

  22. Awesome haul this week, the cover for 1.4 kinda creeps me out with the bug though lol. I still need to read Goddess Interrupted at some point. Happy reading!

Unfortunately this is an award and tag free zone - Whilst I appreciate the thought, I simply don't have the time to pass them on.
