Stacking the Shelves *30*

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).


I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday - and lots of bookish goodies!  As usual, my actual holiday book haul consisted mostly of gift cards & cash. So that means, I'll be doing my Holiday StS posts later... as the books arrive in the mail :D This week is mostly dedicated to review copies,  with one very exciting wishlist item:





First of all I'd like to thank the lovely Lee @ Rally the Readers for the copy of Raven Boys! She remembered that I'd gotten a copy of book #2 at BEA this year but I still hadn't gotten my hands on the first one so she very generously sent it out to me!!   After the End sounds like a unique post-apocalyptic adventure.  Into the Dark is a magical fantasy...and you know how much I love those ;) The Falconer has an assassin, the Fay and is a historical set in Scotland (♥!!)  Finally, The Seers is the follow up to last year's The Holders.  While I'd had some issues with the first book, I still thought the series had some potential.  Now that I know what to expect, I'm curious to see how I'll like this one.

What do you think about the goodies I got this week?
 I promise I'll have some more Holiday bookish goodness in the coming weeks ;)
Don't forget to link me up to YOUR haul!

  4. The Shadow Prince looks awesome; I just added it to my TBR. And that cover of The Raven Boys .... I have the hardcover, which only has the raven on it, and sometimes I get VERY tempted to buy a copy of the paperback just because I love its cover so much. I hope you enjoy reading it (and The Dream Thieves)! :D

  6. Awesome haul! I've heard so many amazing reviews for the Raven Boys and it's been on my TBR for the longest time. I have to check out The Falconer just because it has an assassin in it. I love assassin books!
    I hope you like all of your new books :D
