Stacking the Shelves/Showcase Sunday

This post is both Showcase Sunday a weekly meme hosted by Vicky at Books, Biscuits and Tea and Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga’s Reviews where you show what books you’ve purchased, gotten from the library, received from giveaway, as gifts or for review.

I can’t believe Christmas is right around the corner! I hope everyone is having a great holiday season. Last week was a rather stressful week due to my husband getting in a wreck. Thank God he is fine but our car was totaled. We have a plan to deal with it all so things are looking better but I obviously didn’t have a lot of time to read or write reviews. I hope to review Her Dark Curiosity, Red Rising and Avalon next week (fingers crossed!)

Now to the books:

For Review (via NetGalley)

The Unbound (The Archived, #2)

The Unbound by Victoria Schwab

For Review (via Edelweiss)

The Murder Complex (The Murder Complex, #1)

The Murder Complex by Lindsay Cummings

    I’m so happy to hear that though the car got totalled, your husband is perfectly fine without a scratch! Not surprising you haven’t read, reviewed or blogged much after that!

    I can’t wait to hear what you think of The Murder Complex, it sounds great and my request was denied.

      It is amazing how well he came out of the crash. Not a single think wrong. Feel very blessed that he is uninjured. Thank you for your well wishes and concern Pili <3

      Oh, I'm so sorry your request was declined 🙁 I'm very curious to how it will be since Cummings is a debut author.

    I absolutely adore the cover for The Unbound, though I still haven’t read The Archived. The Murder Complex has been on my radar for a while now, so I look forward to seeing what you think.

    Things sound hectic for you at the moment, and I’m glad your husband is okay! Of course you wouldn’t have had much time for reading, but hopefully you’ll be able to soon. I hope everything works out. Happy reading! 🙂

      Hi Grace 🙂
      Yes, Victoria is awesome! I was this close to not requesting/downloading either book but I couldn’t resist. I have no self control. Have a great week!

    Oh no! I’m so sorry to hear about the wreck – so glad your husband is okay!

    Also, please enjoy your books. 🙂 Use them as stress relief!

      Thank you Jess! Now we just wait for insurance to come back and let us know what we can get for the car…so less stressful not having anything to do but wait. Have a great week too!

    Sorry to hear about the car! That must have been awful. I’m glad your husband is okay though. It’s lucky that he wasn’t hurt.

    I hope you enjoy your new books when you get around to them! I’m curious about The Murder Complex. I love the cover. And I also see you’re reading Tin Star. How is it so far? I’ve seen mixed reviews, but I’m planning to read it in a couple of weeks or so.

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

      Thank you Sam! It was very very lucky he wasn’t hurt at all. Feel very blessed.

      I’m very curious about the Murder Complex. I like the summary and cover but since Lindsay is new I have no idea what writing style she has. I’m hoping it’s very good. I don’t exactly know how I feel about Tin Star. the pacing is veeery slow but there is something about it that is keeping me reading.

    I still have to read The Archived (but I’ve heard amazing things about it) and hmm…I’m personally not that impressed with the cover of The Murder Complex.
    I hope you’ll enjoy all your lovely books Kristen! :D<3

      You know…I’m sort of mixed with the cover of TMC. It has grown on me. When it was first released I wasn’t a fan but now I like it much more. I hope the writing is very well done. We shall see!

    I can’t believe Christmas is right around the corner either. I am the Queen of Last Minute Shopping so naturally I’m doing all of my shopping this weekend. Including getting my tree. I suck at Christmas. lol
    So glad to hear your husband is okay (especially after seeing those scary pictures).
    I haven’t yet read The Archived but boy do I need to, that sounds fantastic. That cover on The Murder Complex is fantastic. Enjoy your new reads!

    So, I’m guessing this means you’re on the tour for The Unbound?!? Me, too! Sooo excited to hear what you think of it. I loved it EVEN MORE than The Archived, which is saying a lot. Now I need to read The Near Witch and Vicious. 🙂 Enjoy your new reads!
