Stacking the Shelves (10)

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature hosted by Tynga's Reviews showcasing new books we've either received or bought this past week.


Alright, so I have officially placed myself on a book buying ban until the Holidays - (if it were up to my boyfriend I would have been banned long ago! ha!) so unless there are some super cheap e-books in my future I'll be praying to the Netgalley gods and hoping for author requests. That being said, here are the goodies I got a hold of this week:

I'm beyond excited to have received via Netgalley:

Author: Jordan Dane
Official Release Date: December 18th 2012

After featuring this on my WoW this week, I was thrilled to receive an approval email the same day!   A huge thanks to Harlequin Teen -  I am one happy girl :D  Indigo Awakening is a paranormal/fantasy about gifted 'Indigo' teens who must hide their powers from a fanatical church group that hunts them.  How awesome does all that sound?  I'm loving the colour scheme of the cover as well - very fitting.  I'm hoping to start this a.s.a.p. because I am beyond curious about the whole storyline...I've also really been wanting to read a good paranormal- it feels like it's been awhile!


And here are the review requests I got this week:


Prophecy Girl is about a girl named Sam who's dreams tend to be psychic predictions of the future. Her sister Violet can make things happen by wishing/praying for them.  And while both these things leave them with many unanswered questions about events that may unfold - they both also have to deal with the fact that they suspect that their mother is trying to kill them.  To me things sounds like an intense and emotional paranormal type read so when the author asked me to read it in exchange for an honest review I instantly said yes.  Souls in Peril is a YA paranormal that deals with bullying.  When a popular kid dies he gets a chance to be sent back, to 'share a body' with another boy who's being bullied in an attempt to help him out.  This isn't really my usual kind of read but when I read the synopsis it really picked my interest  so I hurried to fire off an email accepting the offer!  The reviews that are out on this one are positively glowing so I can't wait to see what all the fuss is about for myself!

So what did you get a hold of this week?

  2. All of your books this week sound great, Micheline! I'm on a book buying ban as well, though I did cave in to a few Cyber Monday deals on Amazon that I just couldn't pass up. :) Happy reading, and thanks for stopping by!

  12. Indigo Awakening looks soooo awesome! I only really started giving attention to it after seeing it as your WoW. I wish I wasn't so busy, I'd request it in an instant! I really hope you enjoy it :) Prophecy Girl sounds interesting too.
    And well... from personal experience I can say that despite a book buying ban, you'll still end up having stuff in your virtual mailbox. Netgalley. Giveaways. Free kindle books. It's impossible to stay away from them :P
    Thanks for stopping by earlier :)

  15. Yay for Indigo Awakening. I almost put in a request for that one, but then I realized I probably wouldn't have time to get to it, so I've added it to my wishlist as well.

    Book buying bans stink, but they are totally necessary sometimes. I'm on one too. But I will also make an exception for cheap e-books. You can't beat those 1.99 Kindle deals!
