Stacking the Shelves

This weekly meme is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.

Stacking The Shelves is all about the books we are adding to our shelves each week, sharing with you our excitement for our newest titles and maybe have you discover a new book in the process!

Well after my amazing haul last week I thought I would keep it pretty tame this week! But even still I added more than I thought I would! Darn B&N coupons!

Here's what I bought:

Ten by Gretchen McNeil--I enjoyed 3:59 so much I decided to pick up another of Gretchen's books and since this was the only one B&N had, it kind of made my decision easy!
The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin--True I still need to read the first one, but again, I had a coupon! So it was hard to pass up, especially since everyone raves about this series! Have high hopes for it!

Then I received for review from the publisher via Netgalley:

Second Star by Alyssa B. Sheinmel (ARC)--True, it's going to read as a contemporary, but it's also a sort of twisted, updated version of Peter Pan. Hence my interest!

Thanks Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR) & Netgalley!

And then, Anna Banks has been having weekly contests giving away a signed set of her books up until her third one releases, sadly, I didn't win that, but I did get the runner up prize of signed bookmarks! Yay!

Thanks Anna!

And that was my haul this week! What did you get?


  1. Ten!! That book sounds absolutely amazing. Looking forward to seeing what you think of that one :D.
    Brilliant haul - enjoy!

  4. I saw Second Star, too. I thought real hard on that one... Peter Pan drew me in and the beach setting sounded so good. But it was screaming "love triangle" at me so I stepped back from the shiny cover. It was hard but I managed. It'll be interesting to see what you think, that's for sure!!!!

  5. Nice assortment of books. I'm glad I'm not the only one who buys book 2 in a series before reading book 1. Second Star is on my stack already from Macmillan. I won't get to it for a while though. Thanks for visiting my blogs. Happy reading!

  6. Nice haul! :) Ten looks good!

  7. Ten is a contemporary too! I started thinking you must have fallen and hit your head to have 2 contemporary books in your stack. :)
    I read the first Mara Dyer book and enjoyed it, and I have the second one from the library sitting here waiting for me to pick it up and read it already!
    I'm curious about Second Star, so I can't wait to read your review.

  8. I should buy Ten too. Hope you enjoy your new reads :)

    Happy reading!
