Stacking the Shelves (5)


It's been a while since I did one of these, so I have a bunch of things to show you!


Darkness Falls by Jessica Sorensen

I got this ebook for free from Amazon UK!

From Netgalley I got these:


Midnight City by J. Barton Mitchell


Undeadly by Michele Vail


Splintered by A. G. Howard


Scent of Magic by Maria V. Snyder (This is the UK cover, which I LOOOOOVE)

And I bought Percy Jackson and the Titan's Curse


What did you get recently? Let me know in the comments below, or leave your link! Have you read any of these already? I've only read Percy Jackson so far, but I cannot wait to read the rest! EEP! I'm also totally out of my reading funk, my throat is getting better and I'm hoping to wrap up this family stuff soon. So I'm almost back in business!

    1. Thank you!

      I'm going to have to buy the Heroes of Olympus series right after I've finished PJO. I have a feeling I'm going to want to read them in quick succession.

  34. I've requested Undeadly but to no avail. Hopefully I get approved! :)
    The third book in the PJO series is probably my favorite - I hope you enjoyed it! Great haul, and thanks for stopping by!

  36. I got Darkness Falls too and I just finished it. It was...good but also disappointing. Interested to hear what you think.

    I cannot WAIT to read my copy of Splintered.

    I DNFd Midnight City. I was just bored.

    Not hearing great things about Undeadly.

    I cannot WAIT to read Scent of Magic either. I am a huge Snyder fan.

    Really great haul this week, Amber. Thanks for visiting mine as well. :)

    1. *high five* I love Maria's books! I was a bit disappointed that Touch of Power was so similar to Poison Study, but whatever. I loved it all the same.

      I hope you like Splintered! It sounds amazing. And aw, sorry you didn't like Midnight City :( Hopefully I'll enjoy it more.

      You're welcome! :)

  37. Great haul! I have Splintered from NetGalley too. I really need to get to it before it expires lol. Enjoy your books, and thanks for visiting my blog earlier! :-)
