Stacking the Shelves
Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme at Tynga's reviews to show off new additions to our book piles, be they bought or received from a publisher.
I wasn't planning on doing a Stacking the Shelves post this week. I ordered and preordered quite a bunch of books (read: too many >.<) but wanted to share them when they actually arrive. However, I went to the used book store with a friend today and of course I couldn't walk out without buying anything...
The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak
Kisses From Hell, stories by Richelle Mead, Alyson Noël, Kristin Cast, Kelly Armstrong, Francesca Lia Block
Wings, by Aprilynne Pike
The Power and the Glory, by Graham Greene
Between, by Jessica Warman
I've heard so many amazing things about The Book Thief that I just had to get it when I spotted it! I've also been curious about Wings for a while, but always felt a little too dubious about it to buy at the store at the normal price. But for 1.50 Francs? Why not. I've never heard about Between, but the summary drew me in. As for Kisses From Hell, I already own Love is Hell and Promnights From Hell and there is a story by Richelle Mead in it... grabbing that one was a no-brainer. I have no idea what the Graham Greene book is about, but I've been meaning to read one of his works for a while (it's actually embarrassing that I've never read him, being a Lit student and all).
Have you read any of those books? Most of them have been out for a while... Also, feel free to leave me link to your own book haul :)
