Stacking the Shelves: Derailed and in Pieces, Withering

Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews to showcase all the books and other bookish things we  got in the past week, no matter whether it's for review, bought, won, gifted, borrowed...

Unlike last week, I had quite a haul this time! Apart from Wither, which I finally bought in paperback because I'd been resisting its lure for forever, it was all ebooks though.

So first the ones I bought:

Wither, by Lauren DeStefano
The Grimm Diaries Prequels (1-6), by Cameron Jace
Untouched, by Jus Accardo
Christmas Kisses, by H.M. Ward

I loved Jus Accardo's Touch, so a novella from Kale's point of view sounded awesome! And the christmas-y book... well. I don't usually read holiday-themed books, but I really like the cover for this one and I read a good review and it sounded fun and it was cheap *shrug* I'll see how I like it. It's short, too. For The Grimm Diaries, I was part of the promo and just couldn't resist getting them :)

For review:

Pieces, by Michelle Davidson Argyle
Florence,by Ciye Cho

I'm part of the blog tour for Pieces in February and am currently reading the first book, The Breakaway. I'm not very far in yet but enjoying what I've read. I was requested to review Florence by the author, and I'm curious about it because it'll be my first mermaid book.


Derailed, by Alyssa Rose Ivy

I've been curious about this one for a while now because it's New Adult and the premise sounds interesting. I hope I'll get to read it soon, and I also have Alyssa's book Flight on my kindle, waiting to be read... I need to do an ebook-reading-intervention soon >.<

Oh, and check out the giveaways in my sidebar while you're here! Some of them are still quite low on entries ;)
I've also signed up for the 2013 TBR Pile Reading Challenge and you can check out what I'm planning to read here.

What do you guys think? Have you read any of these books? And what did you get this week? Link me up in the comments :) (Also, if any of you have genius suggestions for Xmas gifts for friends&family... I'm listening.)
