Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. It’s been a couple of weeks since my last Stacking the Shelves, and I fear I went a little crazy with my book purchases…it’s a terrible time of year for books (and I mean that sarcastically!), there are just so many new releases that it’s difficult (for me, anyway) to control myself! Here’s what’s on my shelf this week (click on the book covers to go to Goodreads):
For Review from NetGalley & Edelweiss:
Chantress by Amy Butler Greenfield. Release date: May 7 2013 (Margaret K. McElderry Books). I have to admit I requested this from Edelweiss for sentimental reasons. My mother’s name is Amy Butler! I figured it was a sign, and I’m so happy I was approved. This story about a girl who has the power to make things happen when she sings sounds amazing.
Speaking From Among the Bones by Alan Bradley. Release date: January 29 2013 (Delacorte Press). This is the fifth adventure of eleven-year-old sleuth Flavia de Luce, and I adore these books. Not only are they printed without dust jackets (something I wish more publishers would do, but I think it’s probably more expensive to print the images directly onto the boards), but Bradley’s writing is fantastic. Even though the protagonist is only eleven, these are not YA books.
Lichgates by S. M. Boyce. I stumbled upon this book on NetGalley and decided to download it. It’s the beginning of a YA fantasy trilogy and has lots of five-star reviews on Goodreads.
Demon Soul and Demon Hunt by Christine Ashworth. I participated in the Violet Midnight Facebook Launch Party a couple of weeks ago, and was lucky enough to win these books from Christine. The publisher is Crescent Moon Press, and I’ve read several really good books from this small publisher.
The Prince of Mist by Carlos Ruiz Zafón. I won this from Andreia Nunes at Tyrony. When I received the package I realized she lives in Portugal! Thanks Andreia!
What can I say? I’m dying to read all these books, and I’m hoping for a miracle (like time freezing) that will give me a chance to read them:) I’d love to know what’s on your shelves this week!
