Stacking the Shelves *32*

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).

Hi everyone :) My haul this week mostly consists of review copies - and one delayed Xmas gift that was unavailable at the time I placed my order. I have to admit that I'm pretty darn excited about all of these though:

So for those of you that are wondering: Touch of Power was the Holiday holdout. I'd specifically wanted that ^^ cover but Amazon didn't have it on hand when I placed my order.  Initially the estimated delivery date was mid-February so I was psyched when I got the e-mail saying it had shipped!  Sunrise is the third and final book in the Ashfall trilogy - and even though I *still* haven't read Ashen Winter, I couldn't resist scooping up book 3!  In my defense, I'm planning on getting into book 2 a.s.a.p. ;-)  A World Without Princes is the sequel to A School for Good & Evil which I'd recently featured as my WoW pick.  Despite my issues with book 1, I'm still very curious about what will happen next for our heroines & hero.

Dark Eden is characterized as a dystopian sci-fi fantasy, so you can imagine how that combination of genres got me hooked.  The synopsis sounds like nothing I've ever read before too which is exciting!  Finally, Talented is about a young female assassin with revenge on her mind.  Oh and she seems to have some psychic or paranormal gifts! *squee*

Let me know what you think of my books this week!
And don't forget to link me up to your haul!!

  1. I hope to start the Ashfall series soon. My SNL got it for Christmas so after she's read it then I'll start it. Happy reading!

    Um no...I won't be watching the Super Bowl. I don't like football either. Looks like you got a good haul this week. Happy reading.

  2. Touch of Power is awesome. I love Maria Snyder books. She is an excellent writer. I still have to read the first book in the School of Good vs. Evil.

  3. I can't wait to read A World Without Princes. The first book wasn't perfect, but enjoyable enough to continue. And it has another stunning cover. Happy reading!

  5. I'm excited to see what you think of Touch of Power! For some reason, I never got around to reading the rest of the series, and it's been so long since I read book 1, that a reread is in order, lol. Enjoy all of your books, Micheline! :D

  7. Sunrise is out for review?? How did I miss that. (Actually, this is the first I'm hearing of Dark Eden and Talented and those sound awesome, so I guess I just live under a rock). Alright, I need to request Sunrise now. I'm really anxious to see how that series is going to end.
