Stacking the Shelves: Savage Sparks and Stormy Seasons in Zombieland

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 a two books I'd ordered from The Book Depository finally arrived!
April Genevieve Tucholke - Between the Spark and the Burn
Gena Showalter - Alice in Zombieland

I've been meaning to read this Alice series for forever! So when the paperback was on sale, I had to get it. Between the Spark and the Burn was a must! I'll need to do a partial re-read of Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea though because I remember that there were quite a few twists at the end, but not exactly what they were...

The Bone Season is on there not because I bought it this week but because I've just read it and it was read-until-2am amazing! I'm so glad the sequel, The Mime Order, will be out in January already!

Bought as ebooks

Faking Normal, by Courtney C. Stevens
Savage Delight, by Sara Wolf
Storm, by Brigid Kemmerer
White Hart, by Sarah Dalton (freebie!!)

I read Faking Normal last Sunday and I cried. I'd read the prequel novella, The Blue-Haired Boy, in the spring and I've wanted the rest of the story ever since. It was very powerful and thought-provoking.
Savage Delight is the sequel to Lovely Vicious. After featuring it on a TTT a few weeks back, I've been urged on twitter to read the sequel. So here I go.
To be honest I don't really know what Storm is about, but many of my blogger friends have been raving about the series so when I saw it for 38 cent (weird price!) I thought I'd give it a try.
White Hart was free and looked like a great fantasy adventure! Also, I confess I fell in love with that cover. It reminds me of misty fall afternoons at my grandmother's farm.

That's it from my side :) Have you read any of them? And what books did you get in the past week?


  1. Oh, White Hart! I got that one as an eARC ages ago, I can't remember if I finished it. Enjoy your books!
