Stacking the Shelves

Not a lot happened this week and I didn’t get all that many books. It’s been fairly slow around here and I’m pretty happy about that.

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.

I apologize for the crummy pictures this week but I’m too lazy to take new ones

For Review (from the publisher- thank you Harper!)

Jewel

The Perilous Sea by Sherry Thomas and The Jewel by Amy Ewing

I have already read The Perilous Sea and I really loved it. I’m reading The Jewel right now but I’m not far enough to know yet what I’ll think of it.

Purchased:

Shimmer

Shimmer by Paula Weston

I recently read Haze the second in this series and absolutely loved it (look for my blog tour post in September). I couldn’t wait so I had to order Shimmer. It hasn’t been released in the US yet but I couldn’t wait.

And that concludes all the new book this week. I did go to a book signing- Ben Winters at Murder by the Book. It was a great event and I was able to get the entire The Last Policeman series signed. I immediately loaned the series to my parents to read. If you’ve not heard about this book you can read my review of book one here. The highlight of the night for me was winning the loan bag of Hank Palace blend coffee.

How was your week? Would you drink the won coffee or save it? I know it’s crazy but I’m debating what to do. The collector in me wants to save it but the coffee drinker wants to drink it all.

    Ohhh those covers are just gorgeous! I want to read The Jewel, though I’ve heard it’s similiar to the Selection?? (Not sure if that was content wise or just cover wise. xD) And The Perilous Sea is just calling to me with all those water sparks. *happy sigh* I need some epic fantasy in my life right now.

    A lot of bloggers have been talking about The Jewel and it’s getting me more interested too. I also really want to read The Burning Sky so it’s really great to hear you enjoyed The Perilous Sea!

    I’ve read mixed reactions for The Jewel. I hope your experience is better, Kris! Oh, I’m definitely looking forward to your thoughts on Haze! There’s so much love for The Rephaim series; I know it’s one I’ll have to discover for myself, hopefully later this year. 🙂 Enjoy your books, girly!

    Hank Palace coffee – that is awesome! I want to start World of Trouble, but I have so many other books to read. But I’ve got to know what happens to the asteroid!

    Where was that version of Shimmer published? I did see Haze pop up on NG the other day, but I’m not sure if I want to continue reading the series.

    Oo pretty! Now I have a question my dear, did you email and specifically request physical arcs of those two Harper arcs? I can’t seem to get them to send me physical copies so I’m curious how I should strategize 😉
