Stacking the Shelves

This week was wonderful for my book haul! I got one of my most anticipated reads– The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski. I’m obsessed with her writing and this series. I dropped everything to read it and I’m nearly done. It is amazing.

I also got sick this week. My whole family got hit with a cold and I’m the last to come down with it. I thought I’d escaped! Darn! I am on cold medicine so feel better but I don’t feel all there in the head. Medicine brain for sure.

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.

AHHHH! The Winner’s Crime is in  my hands! I swooned upon opening the package. I have been wanting this one since the moment I read The Winner’s Curse. If you’ve followed this blog for awhile you’ll recall my complete adoration of Marie Rutkoski and her writing.

Soulprint’s summary seemed so interesting I had to request it. I’m hoping it’s as wonderful as I hope it’ll be.

Our Lego cover art for Crown of Midnight was included in the Heir of Fire fan trailer! I was pumped! And today I received this massive package from Bloomsbury and look what was inside! So amazing of them.

Jon at Scott Reads It! is such a great friend and got The Iron Trial signed for me. Thank you! That cover is even more beautiful in person. Pictures don’t do it near justice.

star

Summary:
Lost and broken, Celaena Sardothien’s only thought is to avenge the savage death of her dearest friend: as the King of Adarlan’s Assassin, she is bound to serve this tyrant, but he will pay for what he did. Any hope Celaena has of destroying the king lies in answers to be found in Wendlyn. Sacrificing his future, Chaol, the Captain of the King’s Guard, has sent Celaena there to protect her, but her darkest demons lay in that same place. If she can overcome them, she will be Adarlan’s biggest threat – and his own toughest enemy.

If I Were Going to BEA- The Books I’d Want

This post is inspired by Jenna from Jenna Does Books post BEA 2014 My Most Anticipated Titles

Because I’m a glutton for punishment I’ve been perusing the galley drop lists and day-dreaming what it would be like to join the amazing bloggers headed to BEA later this month. I can’t imagine the excitement, stress and nerves associated with going. I can’t wait to hear all the stories and see the pictures.

In my day-dreaming I’ve obviously created my wish-list so figured I’d share it. Not in order of desire.

 JackabyMortal Heart (His Fair Assassin, #3)Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass #3)

 The Darkest Part of the ForestThe JewelThe Fire Artist

 The Vault of DreamersThe Walled CityTrial by Fire (The Worldwalker Trilogy, #1)

 SinnerThe Iron Trial (Magisterium, #1)

Jackaby by William Ritter, Mortal Heart by Robin LaFevers, Heir of Fire by Sarah J Maas, The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black, The Jewel by Amy Ewing, The Fire Artist by Daisy Whitney, Vault of Dreamers by Caragh M O’Brien, The Walled City by Ryan Graudin, Trial by Fire by Josephine Angelini, Sinner by Maggie Stiefvater and The Iron Trial by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare

I’m probably forgetting some other epic books but these are the ones that I’ve taken the most notice of. Jackaby is my latest obsession. I was approved on Edelweiss but I’d scramble to get that beautiful ARC; I would love to pet the cover. I also have a digital copy of Trial by Fire but once again I’d love to have the physical ARC  for the cover. I would also have Talon by Julie Kagawa on the list but the wonderful Meredith from Pandara Books gifted me a copy.

Related sort of– our latest LEGO cover was of Mortal Heart by Robin LaFevers. I was thrilled and honored that she shared our Lego cover on her website! If you’ve not visited her site and blog then you really must.

Are you headed to BEA? If so what book is your most anticipated? If you’re like me and not going do you still look at the information and daydream?
