Stacking the Shelves (7)

Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by the lovely people over at Tynga's Reviews.
This is a huge haul since I haven't done one in over a month. I think I've covered all the books, and I've gone through my older hauls, but I have a feeling I've missed a couple.

Bought
- Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally
I've been wanting to read this one for AGES, and I'm so happy I finally got around to buying it. I'm hoping to read it by the end of the year!
- Academy 7 by Anne Osterlund
This has been on my wishlist since I first started blogging!
- Insignia by S. J. Kincaid
I've been told that this is awesome by so many people. I have no idea what it's about, but still. EEP!

Gifts
My friend, Tatum, bought two books for me, one for my birthday and one for Christmas. Amazon packed them both in the same box, so I couldn't leave one as a surprise, unfortunately!
- Life of Pi by Yann Martel
LOOK AT THIS COVER! Tatum read this a couple of weeks ago and loved it, so I'm sure I will too.
- The Last Werewolf by Glen Duncan 
I've been told by two people that this is amazing. Can't wait to read it! I'm gonna have to wait until after Christmas, though, since this was the intended Christmas present.

Daph from Loving Books bought me these for my birthday back in November! I cannot thank her enough. She has AMAZING taste in books, y'all!
- Variant by Robison Wells
I've already read this and I ADORED IT. Such a great, shocking, mind-bending book. I need the sequel in my life.
- Pleasure Unbound by Larissa Ione
This is clearly not YA ;) The Demonica series is one of Daph's favourites, so I think I'm gonna love this!

For Review
- Infinite Sky by C. J. Flood
This is about a family who have travellers move in close by. I can't wait to read it, since there are a lot of travellers near to where I live and I'm really interested in reading about them.
- The Disappeared by C. J. Harper
I read this this week! My review won't be up until the end of January, though.
- Beyond by Graham McNamee
I wasn't able to finish this, but some people have really enjoyed it! It's about ghosts and is meant to be quite creepy!
- Quantum Drop by Saci Lloyd
This sounds action packed! Can't wait to get to it.
- Dance of Shadows by Yelena Black
Isn't the cover gorgeous? I got a copy of this from NetGalley, and am really looking forward to reading it.
- Pivot Point by Kasie West 
I'm so happy I got approved for this on Edelweiss! 
- Taken by Erin Bowman
I'm SOOOOO excited to read this debut!
- Right of Way by Lauren Barnholdt
I loved Lauren's other book, Two-Way Street, so I'm really looking forward to reading this when the weather gets a bit warmer!
- Hysteria by Megan Miranda
I enjoyed Megan's Fracture, so I think I might like this one! Can't wait to find out.
- The Madness Underneath by Maureen Johnson
EEP! I can't wait to see where this one goes.
- Sister Assassin by Kiersten White
AKA Mind Games. Not sure why they changed the title, but whatever. I am excited!
- Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi
I've been wanting to read this since I finished the first book back in 2011!
- Requiem by Lauren Oliver
 I. Cannot. SDISHLHNSDKVLF
- Revolution 19 by Gregg Rosenblum
This is one of my most anticipated debuts of 2013! I can't wait to get stuck in.
- Paper Valentine by Brenna Yovanoff
This will be my first book by Brenna! I'm excited. And I love this UK cover, it looks a lot more sinister than the US one.

And there are more coming! But this is it for now because this is ridiculously huge. Feel free to leave links to your hauls below!

  30. Woah, this is a haul of epic proportions! So many books I'd love to read, but also loads I've never heard of. I got Dance of Shadows a few weeks back and want to read it very badly... Paper Valentine and Pivot Point sound awesome as well, and I'm going to check out Academy 7 now because you said you've wanted it for such a long time and I didn't even know it existed.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog, and enjoy all your new shelf friends :)
