Stacking the Shelves
Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature hosted by Tynga's Reviews showcasing new books we've gotten a hold of (bought/given/gifted/trade/for review).
What goodies did I get this week?
I've been so caught up in the new blog, so I've been neglecting (and missing) my reading a bit again this week...but that doesn't mean I didn't manage to get a few pretties this week ;-)
Books I received:
The Sound & The Echoes
Author: Dew Pellucid
Imagine that everyone around you has a mirror image living somewhere else. Your world is like a sound, which produced that other world of echoes. And in this land men are governed by a terrible law: every Echo has to die, if his Sound dies.
One Sound especially must die. The Prince's Sound. The Fate Sealers and Fortune Tellers will make sure of that! Because after this Sound dies, the Echo Prince will have to die too.
Now, 12-year-old Will Cleary is about to discover that he is the Sound the Echoes are hunting.
And so begins his perilous adventure into a see-through, sparkling world, filled with spying crystal balls, an eerie fortress of castaway children, a hunt for clues in an ancient book of riddles, and a last-chance escape through a frozen gem-studded lake into a secret land that holds the key to placing the Prince on the throne and returning freedom to the Echo.

Books I purchased:
Delirium by Lauren Oliver & Cinder (Lunar Chronicles #1) by Marissa Meyer
I have heard nothing but good things however, about Cinder, and at first before all the buzz, I wasn't sure if this would really be my thing. But glowing review after glowing review finally convinced me (it was pretty easy actually) and I caved. I mean Cinderella was my absolute favorite fairytale as a little girl and I think the sci-fi twist with the android bits should keep it fresh and interesting!
