Stacking the Shelves {24}

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews, where bloggers share recently bought, borrowed, won, and gifted books (print or ebooks)!

Lots of interesting books have been going on tour and with me being weak, I couldn't help but sign up! I've already reviewed Glaze. The Polaris Uprising is written by a fellow Filipino so of course I have to read it (my sisters have the nerve to call me unpatriotic, hmph). Don't Fall is a contemporary retelling of Rapunzel - when will my life begin? Sorry, huge Tangled fan here. And then there's Melt by Selene Castrovilla whose previous book broke my heart, so here I am, back for more!

I feel like I haven't read a YA paranormal romance book in a long time so when the author of Minutes Before Sunset emailed me with a review request, I just had to say yes. More Than Music is also for a tour, and I'm really excited to read it because it sounds similar to one of the plot bunnies I have jotted down somewhere. I fell in love with Charles Sheehan-Miles' Thompson Sisters series and although I wasn't a huge fan of the first book in this spin-off series, no one can stop me from reading Girl of Rage. And then, Dangerous Creatures. I haven't read the Beautiful Creatures series yet and I don't think I'll be able to before I start this one, but from the reviews I've read I take it I should be fine.

Zac & Mia, Vivian Apple at the End of the World, and Press Play are my spoils from the YA Buzz Books list thingy on NetGalley, and I'm so happy I have them because they all sound like amazing books! And finally, I got the Cruel Beauty audiobook when it was free on OMC. It was my first time listening to an audiobook and I couldn't get past twenty minutes; it was so slow. I don't know about you, but I would rather finish a book in six hours instead of ten.

This is it for my latest ecopy (and audiobook!) haul. Have you read any of these books? Tell me how you liked them in the comments below! ;D


  1. Ooh wow. You've got some really great looking books this week. I have Glaze, but I haven't read it yet. Hopefully I'll get around to it soon! Happy Reading!

  2. OMG, your books all look so wonderful! I haven't tried out an audiobook either but an author sent me one as thanks for a review that I did, haha. I was thinking of trying out Audible's free 30 day trial but yeah, I agree with you about the slowness of an audiobook.

    Happy reading!

  3. Great books there. You see the thing about STS is that you never just go in and look at other people's books. You always walk away having one clicked or TBR piled something! This is not good. :P

    BTW, Minutes Before Sunset was great! Enjoy :)

    I'm now following you on GFC I just have to see your reviews of these books!
    Check out STS

  4. Yea, I can't do audiobooks either. It takes forever and i'm always losing track of what's happening since I get interrupted so often. Nice haul!

  5. You have some pretty interesting reads this week! I've heard all sorts of things about Dangerous Creatures. Guess one needs to read it to find out if they are true or not. Cruel Beauty was really good! Looking forward to her next work. Have a great weekend!

  6. WOW! They all look amazing! I really want to read Cruel Beauty and Dangerous Creatures. I'm currently reading Beautiful Creatures for the first time and I'm loving it!

    Enjoy your new books!

  8. So many great books and some new to me titles.... I haven't read the BC series yet and I own the books...Enjoy

  9. Ooh, lots of books! I've only read Glaze of these, I think we rated it the same. I'm kinda sad there's no sequel though, I'd be more than happy to read one!

    Under The Mountain

  10. Great haul. Dangerous Creatures and Cruel Beauty are both on my TBR list. Enjoy them :) My STS

  11. I can see Cruel Beauty being a difficult audiobook. I definitely recommend reading that one! And I just picked up Zac & Mia too!

    Happy Reading!

  12. I really need to try Cruel Beauty the cover! I haven't heard of the rest of the books in your haul (excluding the Beautiful Creatures series, of course). Happy reading!

  13. The Polaris Rising sounds so amazing and I really love the cover! I'm super excited for Zac & Mia, it sounds like something I'd absolutely love reading. I Hope you enjoy all of your books and thanks for sharing. :)
