Stacking the Shelves

I didn’t do my StS last week so this is two weeks worth. I’m very excited about each of these books especially Princess of Thorns (eeep).

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.


Princess of Thorns

Princess of Thorns by Stacey Jay

For Review (and being on the blog tour):



Bitter Greens by Kate Forysth, Blackbird by Anna Carey, Echoes of Us by Kat Zhang and A New Darkness by Joseph DeLaney

I’m on the Bitter Greens blog tour so look out for that at the beginning of October. I absolutely recommend this book to anyone interested in retellings, adult fiction and historical fiction.



The Lost by Sarah Beth Durst

      Bitter Greens has the feel of historical fiction and is an adult book so has some dark content but done oh so beautifully. I adored it. If you read it let me know your thoughts!

    I have read some amazing reviews for The Lost. I bought it on my kindle and it is still on there!

    Blackbird by Anna Carey looks brilliant! It looks like a great fast paced thriller! I look forward to your review on it! 🙂

    Thanks for sharing & I hope you enjoy all of your books! 🙂

      I’ve not heard a lot about The Lost but I’m excited about it! What I have heard has been positive. I started Blackbird–about 13% in. I’ve heard some meh things about it so a tad nervous. Have a great week Alex!

    I wasn’t approved for Bitter Greens but since you’ve so highly recommended it to me, I’ve decided to preorder it already!
    What a neat haul this week, Kristen! I cannot wait to see what you think of Princess of Thorns, I’m so very intrigued about that one!
    Happy reading!

      Oh! I hope you love it Pili. Please let me know your thoughts as you read it. I’m nervous now that you’ll not like it! I started PoT and I’m liking it a lot! It has some pretty typical tropes in it but all so fun. I think you’ll like it.

    Ooh, I think I’ve had Bitter Greens around for a while; it’s been out since 2012 here. Must get round to reading it! Looking forward to seeing you host part of the blog tour!

    Great haul! I received Princess Of Thorns a couple weeks ago for review, and I can’t wait to finally read it. I haven’t read anything by Stacey Jay, and I’m excited to finally see what all the rave is about with her books. I also have Blackbird, A New Darkness, and a signed copy of Lost. I’m hoping too get to them all soon! I hope you enjoy all your new goodies this week!

    Check out my STS:

    Yay for beautiful books. <3 I hope you will love them all Kristen 😀 Hmph. I got declined for Princess of Thorns :p must read your review before I decide if I should pre-order it 😀 Hope you love it. <3 Sigh. Blackbird. I gave it three stars. But thinking back, I'm thinking it wasn't worth more than 1 stars o.O Not that good at all. Ending was STUNNING. But only the last couple of pages. Hmph. Excited to see what you think of it 🙂 Happy reading sweetie. <3

      I’m so sad you got declined. I imagine it’s because of location 🙁 Such a bummer. I have enjoyed what I’ve read of it so far but I’ll DM you when I finish it. I’m scared to bother with Blackbird. I’ve heard nothing but negative things about it. To only have a few great pages…not sure I want to read it. Bleh.

    Princess of Thorns sounds awesome, but I held back on requesting because I wasn’t a big fan of her other book. Curious to see what you think! 🙂

  8. says

    Princess of Thorns! I saw that you really enjoyed this one on Goodreads. ;D
    I have to read Bitter Greens asap after seeing how much you love it. And you know what I feel about Echoes of Us. ;D

    • says

      I really hope you like Bitter Greens. It’s a slower read but so beautifully done. Jon adored it as well. And Princess of Thorns was such a fast, fun read.

  9. says

    Dangit! I still need to get to Bitter Greens, too. Considering the audio on that one, as well, because your gushing over it means I won’t be able to forget it until I read it. 🙂 I got a copy of The Lost, too, a couple of weeks back, and the pub is sending over the audio for Echoes of Us. Can’t wait to read them! Hope you enjoy all of your new reads!

      I bet the audio of Bitter Greens would be amazing! Let me know how you feel about it!! If you don’t plan on reading The Lost in the next month or so maybe we could do a read-along?
