Stacking the Shelves (5)- Jan. 4/13

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga at Tynga's Reviews that is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. Tynga posts her own STS on Saturdays.


I'm horrible. It has been FOREVER since I did a Stacking the Shelves post. However, I haven't accumulated A LOT since then, so there won't be too much catching up to do =). The good news is, these posts will be back with a vengeance! My beautiful, BEAUTIFUL new/old position at my local bookstore comes with the most glorious perk: I can borrow ANY book in the store for 2 weeks. Therefore, I will NEVER be book-less, AND, I will be writing reviews like.CRAZY. Okay,'s what I got over the last month or so:



Both of these beauties (and swag!) were received for upcoming book tours. Check out my blog stop dates on the sidebar of my home page. A HUGE thank you to Liesel and Carrie from GlassHousePress!

Like I need to be borrowing any more books right? I recently got a library card for my new city of residence, I couldn't exactly walk out of there empty-handed now..could I? No way. Not even if I tried. I've read/seen SUCH amazing reviews for Unwind, and I am THIS close to actually cracking open my copy of Rebel Angels-just figured I'd have the 3rd book ready and waiting =P. (Don't you just LOVE the justifications we make for our book hoarding!? lol)

Unwind- Neil Shusterman (Source: Library) ADD
The Sweet Far Thing (Gemma Doyle #3)- Libba Bray (Source: Library) ADD



This book had been speaking to me from the shelves for quite some time at work (I mean, LOOK at that cover!). When I finally picked it up, the synopsis sounded AMAZING as well. I have since returned it to work UNREAD in exchange for another one, but I will be borrowing it again soon. Has anyone read this one??

City of Dark Magic- Magnus Flyte (Source: Work borrow) ADD



See, I can be a good girl. I only bought ONE book from work..ONE! Well, last week at least lol. I've since done some serious damage. Employee discount is a HELL of a thing! I'm unfamiliar with this one as well. TThi picture does NOT do the cover justice, it's gorgeous. Has anyone read it?

The Lost Gate (Mither Mages #1)- Orson Scott Card ADD
