Stacking the Shelves: Ink, Fever, and Freaks

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 :)

Last week was slow but this week more than made up for it! I wish there was more time to read, even though I realized today that I've already read 40 books this year!! o.O

For tour / review / NetGalley:

Girls Love Travis Walker, by Anne Pfeffer
Luminaire, by Ciye Cho
Ink, by Amanda Sun

I read an excerpt from Travis Walker on a blog a couple weeks back and really liked the voice, so when the sign-ups for the tour appeared I signed on immediately :)  I posted my review for Florence by Ciye Cho last week and since I enjoyed the book I agreed to review the sequel when the author offered it to me. As for Ink, I love Japanese culture so when the novel finally showed up on NG I had to request it and I'm so happy I got approved!

Print books:

Darkfever, by Karen Marie Moning
Bloodfever, by Karen Marie Moning
The Wind through the Keyhole, by Stephen King

Darkfever & Bloodfever were gifts from my BFF who re-bought the books so they'd match the editions for the rest of her copies of the series. She's been gushing to me about Barrons for forever so I hope I'll get around to meeting him soon!
The Wind Through the Keyhole is a book I was really excited about when it first came out! Another Dark Tower book! I read the first book in that series nearly 10 years ago and I still think about the characters quite often. I'm so glad I found this paperback edition - the cover is the prettiest version I've seen yet, and it's illustrated :)

Bought ebooks:

Crossing the Line, by Katie McGarry
Beautiful Freaks, by Katie M. John
Monument 14, by Emmy Laybourne

All of these were fairly cheap, Monument 14 is on sale for around 3$ (depending on locaction).

Free on Smashwords:

Winter Fae, by Melissa Turner Lee & Pauline Creeden

I sort of want to read so many of these at once >.< What do you think of them? And what did you get this past week?
Also, in case you missed it, I reviewed Debra Driza's MILA 2.0 this week :)


  1. I got approved for Ink as well and I can't wait to read it! I read and reviewed Crossing The Line and completely fell in love. I hope you enjoy your books!

  2. I got Crossing the Line too. Also, Girls Love Travis Walker looks really good.

  3. Nice haul indeed. All your books look spectacular. Come visit me as well.


  4. Oh. My. YES! The Fever Series!! I am with your BFF in harassing you to read these soon :D Can't wait to see what you'll think, especially considering that you have the first two...!! And YAY for Ink, I got it too but didn't do up a StS this week (again)

    Eager to read your thoughts on Luminaire too - congrats on ALL your books this week!

    1. I must give in to the double-harrassing then :P Once I've dug myself out of review books (i.e. probably in early May) I'll hopefully get to them!
      You must do a huge StS next week then ;) Thanks for stopping by anyway, hun *hug*

  5. Great book haul. I forgot I got Girl Love Travis Walker to. I'll have to add that in next week. I bought Crossing the Line today to. Enjoy all your books.

  6. I bought and read Crossing the Line this past week, too, but I forgot to include it in my post. I didn't love it as much as Pushing the Limits, but that's probably because it was a novella. Less time to get to know the characters.

    Anyway, enjoy your goodies. Happy reading :)

  7. I'd love to get Monument 14, looks amazing. I've yet to brave Stephen King. And Ink looks great, would love to read it as well.

    Happy reading, thanks for stopping by!

  8. I've been seeing a lot of Ink around this week. :P LOL. Have fun!

  9. I'm dying to read INK! And that cover...swoon! Great haul this week! I hope you enjoy them all. Happy reading :D

  10. You got Ink! I can't wait to read it, but I don't have an eReader. ):
    You also got the Fever series! I seriously need to read it asap, but there are just so many books to read and so little time.
    Ohh, and Crossing the Line. Too bad I don't have an eReader. ):
    Thanks for stopping by my STS Carmen! (:

  11. Looks like a lot of great books. I have not heard of these. Read the 1st 2 novels in the Fever series. New Follower.

    Happy Reading
    My Book Haul

  12. I'm so excited to read Ink! It's so gorgeous and sounds really interesting. I'm also super excited to get my hands on Crossing the Line! It sounds awesome! Can't wait to see your reviews on all of these! Happy reading and thanks for stopping by! :D

  13. INK is supposed to be up on NG for the US in a couple of weeks. I can't sounds awesome! Hope you enjoy it. And thanks for reminding me I need to grab Crossing the Line. I still need to read the KMM series...I'll be watching for your thoughts so I know whether to pick them up.

  14. Beautiful Freaks was interesting read... I enjoyed it, hope you do too.

    Sorry I’m late, but thanx for visiting my StS and Sunday Post!
