Stacking the Shelves: Delirium and Fever visit the Carnival of Assassins to hunt Serial Killers

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 :)

This week was great for me in terms of books, which I'm really glad about because otherwise it wasn't so awesome. I couldn't find a new apartment in time (Zurich is terrible like that) so I have to temporarily move back in with my parents (definitely not in Zurich. Think village with 700 people). That means we had to move allll my furniture, books, and other stuff, which was rather stressful and, for me, painful. So when I wasn't hauling around stuff or boxing stuff, I was reading a lot to forget about everything.


Delirium (Debt Collector episode 1), by Susan Kaye Quinn
Carniepunk, by Rachel Caine, Jennifer Estep, et al

After participating in the book blitz for Delirium, I was really curious so I snagged it on Netgalley when it showed up. You can read my review here or click the banner in the left sidebar to win it :)
Carniepunk I've been hoping would show up on Netgalley for a really long time, so I'm beyond happy that I got accepted ^^ I love anthologies!

Bought in print:
Faefever, by Karen Marie Moning
Fever, by Lauren DeStefano
I Hunt Killers, by Barry Lyga
Grave Mercy, by Robin LaFevers

After reading Darkfever and Bloodfever I had to have Faefever right away! I even went to buy it at the bookstore even though I cost almost twice as much as ordering online. I've already read it. Same goes for Fever, which unfortunately I didn't love as much as Wither :(
I've been drooling after I Hunt Killers and Grave Mercy for months and can't wait to get around to them!


Don't Hate the Player... Hate the Game, by Katie Ashley

After reading a review and then the kindle sample, I was so hooked by Noah's voice and the narration that I spontaneously bought it :) It was only about a dollar, but I don't know if that's still the case.

So that's it form me... I had a great bookish week if nothing else and can't wait to get started on those I haven't read yet! I also have a couple giveaways going on, just click the covers on the left sidebar, and I was part of a tour yesterday for Darkness of Light. You can check out my review plus an international giveaway here.
What do you think of my haul? Have you read any of these books? And what new pretties did you get this week?


  1. Faefever! It's my favorite series. Always love to see it on people's hauls. The whole series is amazing. And I agree about Fever by Lauren DeStefano. I didn't like it as much as Wither but the last book, Sever, I did like a lot. =)

    Happy Reading!

    Here's my STS!

  6. Carmen nice haul :) I'm looking forward to reading your thoughts on Susan Kaye Quinn's Debt Collector Serial, I had participated in the book blitz and it's just so intriguing the whole premise of this novel.

    Grave Mercy and Fever…awesome!!!

  8. Yes Carmen! :D
    You got I Hunt Killers! I STRONGLY approve. Can't wait to see what you think of it.
    I'm glad you enjoyed Bloodfever, I'm planning on reading it very soon.
    Yeah, compared to Wither, Fever wasn't that good. It lacked a strong plot. ):
    Enjoy all your lovely books Carmen! (:

  11. Nice. I love seeing what people get. I hope you love them all. Kate Ashley's book looks interesting.


  12. Sorry you weren't able to find an apartment. I hope you find one soon. I also brought home I Hunt Killers, although mine is from the library. I've heard amazing things about it.

    And I NEED to read Grave Mercy. Anyway, enjoy your books and happy reading :)

  13. I adore I Hunt Killers! It's amazing. I haven't read Grave Mercy yet, but I really need to. Happy reading!

  14. Don't you love the Fever series?!!? I think the last book has to be my favorite. :D I also adored Grave Mercy and that Don't Hate the Player looks cute! Enjoy them!

  15. Cool haul. Happy reading :)


  16. YEAH! Even though I know you finished Faefever already I still loved seeing it on here :D Can't wait for you to get Dreamfever AND Shadowfever!!!! Eeeeekk! Grave Mercy is another one I'm dying to get into but is collecting dust on my shelf...maybe if I see you're reading it I'll have to take the plunge myself LOL Heard good things about I Hunt Killers too - congrats on all of these and I'm glad reading made a good distraction (doesn't it always?) for the shitty lack of an apartment...I hope an awesome one comes your way soon doll XOX

    1. I started Dreamfever today and I'm already almost halfway through! Damn is that thing good! I'll have to read some review books after that but then it's Grave Mercy!
      Yeah the whole apartment thing is really wearing me out... I probably won't take the one I could've had after all :(
      Thanks so much for stopping by hun :)

  17. I didn't love Fever as much as Wither, either, which is why I've been hesitant to read the last book. :( GRAVE MERCY! You will LOVE IT! :) I've yet to read I Hunt Killers, but I've been told it is pretty awesome, too. Hope you enjoy all your new reads!!
