Stacking the Shelves

Another week behind us…January is proving to be passing by fast for me. I can’t seem to get my head wrapped around the fact that it’s 2014 and close to midmonth. My son starts soccer soon and is celebrating a birthday…when did he get this old? I’ve been working very hard to get ahead of schedule with my posts. Wish me luck in keeping up the momentum.

Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga’s Reviews is a weekly meme where you show what books you’ve purchased, gotten from the library, received from giveaway, as gifts or for review. So excited about this book haul!

For Review (via Edelweiss):

What did you get this week?

      Yay to Rebel! I imagine it will be wonderful. I am so excited for The Falconer…my request had been pending forever so I might have jumped up and down and squeaked when I got approved.

    I can’t wait to read Rebel! I may have to skip ahead on my reading schedule to get to this one.

    To answer your question on my post: I didn’t request Meridian, because I haven’t read Arclight. But I bought it, though! (Super cheap from The Book Outlet.) I still remember your great interview with McQuein, so I hope I can get to it soon. And I’ll go ahead and pat myself on the back for not requesting the sequel to the uread first book. 🙂

      Go you for your self control! You are doing so much better than me at that. I just can’t resist requesting and downloading if I’m -sure- I’m going to love the book 🙂 You deserve a pat on the back for sure. Can you teach me about self control?

  2. says

    I also got Rebel and the Falconer. I skipped Meridian because I haven’t read Arclight and am not sure it’s for me. I did really enjoy her other book, Premeditated, so maybe I’ll just wait for her to write another suspense novel instead!

    P.S. Look forward to Rebel zombie LEGOS….

    • says

      I’ve yet to read Premeditated but I really enjoy her writing so I’m sure I’d like that one too. Her Arclight series with its sci-fi elements appeal more to me.

      ZOMBIE LEGOS, yes this needs to happen.

    What a cool haul!! I can’t wait to see what you think of Rebel! I also requested it on Edelweiss, but my luck there is quite sparse!
    I also cannot wait to both read and see what you think of the Falconer!

    Happy reading!

      Yes, the Falconer! So freaking excited about that one 🙂 I was convinced I’d not get approved since my request was pending forever. I was beyond ecstatic when I saw that I could download it.

    • says

      I won’t get to it for a while either since it doesn’t release in the next couple of months. I prefer the UK one too but the US one has grown on me lots.

    Oooo…. how was Fire and Flood??? And I’ll have to check back to read your Cress review once I’ve finished mine! Can’t wait to hear what you think of The Falconer too. That’s one I’ve been interested in.

    Hope you have a fantastic week of reading! 🙂

    • says

      Fire & Flood was sort of mixed for me. I’ve posted my review if you want details on my thoughts. Do you have it to review? I would love to hear how you feel about it.

      Yay, Cress!

  6. says

    I can’t wait to start Meridian and The Falconer. Both are going to be phenomenal…I just know it. I also got Rebel, but I wasn’t as impressed with Reboot as everyone else seemed to be. But it was because of all the great reviews that I bought myself the audio in the first place. I’m hoping this sequel redeems the series for me. 🙂 Keep up the good work with the scheduling…I only ever get about three days ahead…and I never *stay* ahead. 🙁

    • says

      I like Reboot but admit that I enjoyed Arclight more. I am very eager to read Rebel because I’m optimistic it’ll add on the aspects I enjoyed from the first book. I KNOW Meridian is going to be amazing.

  7. says

    I’ve heard great things about Rebel. I hope you’ll enjoy it!
    And ahh The Falconer! I desperately want to read that one.
    Enjoy all your lovely books Kristen! (:

      Thank you Kelly! I have been crazy eager for The Falconer. I’m going to have to wait a bit longer before the ol reading schedule lets me have room for it. Super excited though.
