Stacking the Shelves *41*

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! The blog has been a bit quiet these past few weeks, real life has been exceedingly busy unfortunately but everything should be quieting down again. Which means more time for reading, more reviews and a general return to normalcy. Yay! In the meantime, here are the goodies I've managed to get my hands on lately:


Alright, so even though I *still* need to read Grave Mercy, I jumped at the chance to get my hands on Dark Triumph.  The His Fair Assassin books are the kind of books I just know I'll love, you know? So, having the sequel at the ready seemed like a great idea!  I'd ordered City of a Thousand Dolls way back but Amazon didn't have it in stock at the time. So, it was a very pleasant surprise when I got an email saying the book was finally on it's way!  And,  despite not having gotten into my copies of the first two books in the Finishing School trilogy, I couldn't resist getting a copy of the 3rd and final book, Waistcoats & Weaponry. I'm so bad xD

  


Alanna is a book I've wanted to read for AGES, so when I found out there was a deal going on for the e-book version, I took advantage in a heartbeat.  Magonia is a new one for me, I only found out about it a few weeks ago (thanks Nori! xx) so of course, when I saw it up for grabs on EW, I was all over that.  And well Legion is a Brandon Sanderson book.  That's all the reason I need to buy it. Which means that when the lovely Nikki mentioned the ebook was on for a low low price, I almost went into hysterics and bought it that very second :D
That's it for me this week - link me up to your haul so I can hop back!

  1. I still need to read Grave Mercy, too, haha! It's been on my shelf for like...2 years now. But- I've been slowly but steadily getting through unread books on my shelves at home, so I'm optimistic that I'll get it read soon, lol. Awesome haul, Micheline! :D

  3. I seriously need to read Dark Triumph! I read Grave Mercy two months ago and just haven't had time for the sequel. But I should soon, considering the fact that I can now marathon them...I'm super curious about what you'll think of Magonia! Hopefully it's a good one because it sounds mighty creative! Have a good week, Micheline! x

  4. Oh Dark Triumph was amazing. I can't wait to read the next one. I just recently read the 1st Finishing School book and am currently reading book 2 and I love them. Happy reading.

  5. Great haul! I also nabbed Legion for a great price (the preorder is free from audible, price can't get any better than that!) The only other book I've heard of is Carriger novel, but I haven't started that series yet. The rest look very interesting though!

  7. My blog has been quieter lately too. I guess that's just how it goes sometimes. I plan to read Grave Mercy very soon, since I got it from NetGalley - I'm glad you mentioned that you had the chance to get the second book because I hopped over and requested that one too!

  9. Nice haul, Micheline! I love the His Fair Assassin series! I just finished the last book in the trilogy, and I was in awe :) I hope you'll enjoy all your new goodies.

  10. *Grins* City of a Thousand Dolls and Dark Triumph, yes! I can't even be mad that you haven't read Grave Mercy yet ;) Fingers crossed x1000 that you like City of a Thousand Dolls as much as I did, it's so unique!

  11. I forgot how amazing the cover of City of a Thousand Dolls is. I meant to get it when it first came out but I never got to it. I might have to put it on my christmas list!

    Happy Reading!

  13. I just read Legion last week! and finished LEGION SKIN DEEP just a few minutes ago haha. I'm so like you buying books in a series when I still haven't even read the first or second. I've done the same thing with those Gail Carriger books - but I have however finally downloaded the first two of her adult ones on audio and I ordered a finished copy of the first YA one since the copy I had was an ARC and since its WAY past the time it released I figured I would rather read the final version anyhow.

    Looks like our tastes are completely in line cause I want to read all of these except I don't think Alanna is on my list I'll have to check that one out!
