Stacking the Shelves *56*

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'm posting this a day late - I work on Saturdays and yesterday was so busy I never even got a chance to log in and post!  So this is me trying to stay on top of my StS posts! Here's my recent book loot:

GEMINA by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff (The Illuminae Files #2) The Golem's Eye by Jonathan Stroud (Bartimaeus Sequence #2), The Arctic Incident by Eoin Colfer (Artemis Fowl #2) and The Reader by Traci Chee + The Reader tote-bag - which I won in a giveaway hosted by Sarcasm and Lemons - Thank You!!

Lots of sequels and lots of blue/blue-ish covers to be had around here LOL!  Sequels can be hit or miss for me but the two I'm currently reading: The Golem's Eye and The Arctic Incident, are delivering very nicely! They're at least as good as their predecessors :D I'm soooo happy I got into both of those series!  As for Gemina, I'm hoping to read it by year's end so we'll see if the sequel trend continues...

What books have you gotten recently?
Also: have you read any of these?^^ Thoughts?


  1. Haha, yes, you've got a very "cool blue" theme going with the covers this week. AHHHH, I can't wait to hear what you think of Gemina! Hope you get to read it soon :)

  2. Ahhh yay The Reader!!! I love that book. It is so unique. Make sure you look for the hidden messages as you read ;) Happy reading!

  3. Ooh, I'm hoping to finally get to Gemina as well! I'm loving the blue-ish theme going on here. :) I really hope to pick up the Bartimaeus books one of these days (preferably soon), as well! Hope you enjoy everything. :)

  4. Haha! I was just thinking that all the books I'm reading right now have a red theme! It's so weird how that all turns out. I hope you love the sequels. And I can't wait to see what you think of Gemina. Also, I really want to read The Reader too. Great haul!

  5. Nice bluish sequels! heh. I'm glad you're enjoying Artemis Fowl as it was a favourite from my youth :)

  6. I loved Gemina. Need to put it on my Christmas list so I can have a real copy---the ARC is missing a lot for this one!

  7. Nice little haul there... I still have to read Illuminae ... One day!

  8. Ooh- love all of the blue covers! I'm very curious to see what you think of The Reader; I remember all of the buzz it got around its release. I still need to get around to Illuminae and finally see how unique it is for myself! Happy reading, my friend! :D

  9. True, you really have a blue-themed week going on here, Micheline! I own some of those books myself. I'm just really busy these days, too.
    I hope you'll enjoy all your new additions!
