Stacking the ShelvesStacking 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 hi! I hope everyone's doing well post-Holiday madness! I've been super busy with work, so my reading has been suffering. The blog's back to regular features and all that... but reviews have been slow going. Anyway, this is my follow up holiday StS post, since my lovely mom got me Amazon gift cards for Christmas... bless her! The wait for the books to arrive is finally over (excluding pre-orders) so let's get to the goodies:
*My love...my own...my prrrrecioussss*
Here's what was in that stack, in no particular order:
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater (The Raven Cycle #1) hardback, The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater (The Raven Cycle #2) hardback, Every Breath by Ellie Marney (Every #1) hardback
After I was gifted the gorgeous hardback of Blue Lily, Lily Blue over the holidays (Thanks again Lee ♥) I obviously had to upgrade my set to match! And gift cards are the perfect opportunity to do some upgrading imo ;) Same goes for Every Breath, I loved that book way too much just to have an eARC of it hehe.
The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan (The Heroes of Olympus #1), Scarlet by A.G. Gaughen (Scarlet Series #1), The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan (The Wheel of Time #1)
It's been too long since I hung out with some Gods, considering my love of all things mythological, so I figured it was high time I start the Heroes of Olympus series. I find these books make the perfect fun, light read! At this point, I might be the last blogger alive not raving madly about Scarlet, so clearly I had to fix that. And given how I was on such an epic fantasy kick in 2014, I decided that 2015 would be perfect to start in on the Wheel of Time series - it's only been recommended to me like, a million times so far...
Splintered by A.G. Howard (Splintered #1), The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith (Cormoran Strike #1) & Dealing with Dragons by Patricia C. Wrede (Enchanted Forest Chronicles #1)
Again, I think I'm the only person who hasn't read Splintered - and honestly, it's been on my Amazon wishlist for like 2 years, so that one was a no-brainer. Even worst, I call myself the ultimate JKR fangirl, but I have yet to read any of her post-Harry works *gasp* - the horror! I wanted to pick up The Casual Vacancy too but it was out of stock. I can't wait to sink my teeth into the Cormoran Strike series. And finally, I think Dealing with Dragons is pretty self-explanatory: Dragons! Enchanted Forest! Yes please!
Oh and since you guys seemed to enjoy the pictures my last few StS posts, I decided to add a shot of my complete Holiday stack this year:
*BRB, drowning in love, books and ALL the awesome*
That's it for me this week guys :D
