Stacking the Shelves: mixed bunch

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted at Tynga's reviews to share the books we got in the past week. These can be print or ebooks, bought or gifted, borrowed, found, for review...

From Netgalley:

Devil's Bargain (Red Letter Days #1), by Rachel Caine
The Sea of Tranquility, by Katja Millay

I requested Devil's Bargain ages ago and didn't expect the approval anymore. Cool that I got it though! I love Rachel's Morganville Vampires series. And just look at that cover...
The Sea of Tranquility is one I just got approved for a minute ago (requested Friday). I read some amazing reviews of it this week and when it was feautred in the Netgalley newsletter I just couldn't resist... I'm grateful it's only coming out in June though because I have serious case of too-many-books at the moment.

Bought in print:
Shadow Bound (Unbound #2), by Rachel Vincent

I ordered this a while ago and it finally arrived! I loved Blood Bound, the first book in the series, and I can't wait to read the book focusing on Kori.

Ebooks I bought:

Luminosity, by Stephanie Thomas
The Eighties - a Bitchen Time to Be a Teenager, by Tom Harvey
Life on the Edge, by Jennifer Comeaux

I read the kindle-excerpt for Luminosity a while ago and really liked it, so when the author was hosting a giveaway on her blog for those who bought the eBook where you could win a Luminosity hoodie (!!) I bought it. It costs less than a latte at Starbucks, after all.
I saw Tom Harvey's book on someone else's blog a while ago and thought it sounded interesting. When it was free (dunno if it still is) I snagged it.
As for Life on the Edge, I was part of the blog tour but had a promo post, not a review, though I thought it sounded awesome. Time issues. However, it was on discount and now it's mine to read when I have the time. I have quite a bunch of NA contemporaries waiting for me on the kindle ^^

Have you read any of these? What did you get this week?


  1. I need to start the Unbound series. I love Rachel Vincent! Luminosity was really good! Enjoy!
    My Stack

  2. Yay for Devil's Bargain - I agree isn't the cover too beautiful! I haven't read anything by Rachel Caine so I'm really excited to start reading this one :D I haven't read Blood Bound yet but also glad you enjoyed it! Happy reading Carmen & thanks for sharing!

  3. I so need to start Reading Rachel Caine again. Great haul. The e-books have nice covers.

  4. I just want to stop by here and say that I love your blog name! :D
    & it exactly fits my current situation now - I need a new bookshelf. ):

  5. Nice haul. I have the Sea of Tranquility myself but I won't be reading it for a while. I also want Vincent's books, they're super popular and I want to see what the fuss is all about :D

    Happy reading!
