Stacking the Shelves: Evanescent Innocence Severed by Ravens in Silence

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 :)

My post is a bit late this week because I had ordered some books and went to the store this morning to get them, and I wanted to include them in this week's haul. Here they are:

Sever, by Lauren DeStefano
The Raven Boys, by Maggie Stiefvater
Where Silence Gathers, by Kelsey Sutton

I'd meant to read Sever for a long time. I loved Wither but felt conflicted about Fever, but I still need to see how this series ends. The Raven Boys is a book I should have read forever ago. As for Where Silence Gathers, I'd gotten an eARC of the first book last year, loved it, but somehow never got around to reviewing :/ I still feel bad about that. I felt too guilty to request the second book so I bought it instead because I need to see how the story goes. I just started reading it and I really love it so far.

I also got a few ebooks, many of them cheap or for free on Amazon

House of Mirth, by Edith Wharton
The Age of Innoence, by Edith Wharton

I read The Luxe by Anna Godbersen last weekend and it made me want to read more about 1890s New York. I'd always meant to read Wharton during my studies but never managed, so I thought when if not now?

Ephemeral, by Addison Moore
Evanescent, by Addison Moore

I got these two spontaneously because they were free and I remembered reading some good reviews a while back.

So, that's it from me for this week. There's an eARC where I'm still waiting for approval or denial so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. What do you think of my haul? Have you read any of them? And please link me up to your own post :)
