Stacking the Shelves: Dear Killers Between Thorns Burn Bright at Midnight

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews to showcase all the books we got in the past week. Those can be bought, won, gifted, for review, borrowed, print or ebooks... no matter, just share what you got :)

I got way more books this week than originally planned... and I already have so much to read >.< Why can I not resist?! Because of the awesome, that's why.

For review

Dear Killer, by Katherine Ewell
Uninvited, by Sophie Jordan
All That Glows, by Ryan Graudin
Between Two Thorns, by Emma Newman

The first three were available for download on Edelweiss and I couldn't resist, and Between Two Thorns is about a mirror city of Bath, and I love that type of story :)


Finding Cinderella, by Colleen Hoover
Violet Midnight, by Lynn Rush
The Faerie Guardian, by Rachel Morgan
The Krie Seekers, by A.L. Davroe

Finding Cinderella and The Faerie Guardian were freebies when I downloaded them, and Violet Midnight is on sale for 0.99$ (when I got it).
I still haven't read Hoover's Hopeless, but when I do I want to have the novella handy. And it was free. As for Violet Midnight, you had me at vampire hunter trying to blend in at college.
The Faerie Guardian because fairies and The Krie Seekers because steampunk. That's all.

Bought at the used books store
Krieg der Engel (War of Angels), by Wolfgang Hohlbein
Prophecy of the Sisters, by Michelle Zink
Burning Bright, by Tracy Chevalier
The Book of Dead Days, by Marcus Sedgewick
Moon Called, by Patricia Briggs
Iron Kissed, by Patricia Briggs

Krieg der Engel was among the first fantasy books I read as a teen! I borrowed it from the school library several times, so when I found it in the exact same edition I read back then (and that matches his other books on my shelf), I had to have it!
The Mercy Thompson series is among the UF ones I've wanted to start for a while (although I actually got book 3 instead of 2 and left the wrong one at the store >.< Damn not having enough cash on me to get them all!), and Marcus Sedgewick and Tracy Chevalier are authors I'm curious about. Burning Bright is a historical involving William Blake (a favorite poet of mine) and Book of Dead Days sounded really different and interesting and magical.

That's it! What do you guys think of my haul? Is there anything I have to move closer to the top of my neverending reading pile? And what did you get in the past week?

  5. I'm really curious about Dear Killers. I heard the author wrote the book when she was seventeen, I think. Anyhow, great haul, Carmen. I hope you enjoy your new books. Happy reading!

  10. I'm rather jealous of Uninvited! That one sounds SO good! I cannot wait for it. You had so many I hadn't heard of I had to go read about them and All that Glows went right on my ginormous TBR list! Thanks for the great list of books. Happy reading.

  11. Enjoy your books! :) I loved All That Glows!!


    My StS post!

  12. Yeah, fantastic haul! I'm dying to read Uninvited AND those Spirit World books :D I LOVE the cover for All That Glows ♥ Moon Calls is another book that has been on my wishlist/TBR shelf for way too long! Oh and I hope you get to the Faerie Guardian soon, it might be just what I need to finally buckle down and read my copy >.<

    I hope you love all of these!!

  13. I've seen Dear Killer a lot recently, getting quite intrigued by that one! Hope you enjoy all of your reads. My STS

  14. Haha...I have the same problem saying no to all of the awesome! You got some great reads this week! I definitely recommend reading both of the full-length novels in the Hopeless series before that novella. It'll just be more fun and all the jokes will make more sense. :)

  15. Oh, I love AL Davroe. I hope you enjoy your reads! :)

  16. You got Uninvited! I am SO looking forward to reading that one; the cover also looks gorgeous, which is a huge plus.
    Enjoy all your lovely books Carmen & sorry for the late reply - it was midterms room aka study like crazy week.
