Stacking the Shelves #32


Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews, which is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. You can read more about the creation of Stacking the Shelves by visiting the official launch page here.

Not too many new acquisitions this week, which is good because I still have all those library books from last week to get through. Why is it that libraries have the habit of having ALL your requests come in around the same time? Makes it hard to keep up sometimes!


Library Picks/Purchased Print Books:

  • Cinder by Marissa Meyer (purchased paperback version)
  • Vessel by Sarah Beth Durst (Library)
  • Venom by Fiona Paul (Library)

I also bought a new cellphone this week! I am the proud owner of a new Samsung Galaxy S3. I’m slowly adjusting to having a touchscreen only (before I always had a phone with an actual keyboard, as I used a Blackberry), and aside from some strange battery drainage the first few days which I seem to have remedied, I’ve had no problems and am slowly coming to like it. Not love, like my Blackberry, but hopefully I’ll get there!

So what did you get this week? Please link me!

  1. I just borrowed Cinder from my library and I love it enough to buy it; I’m so excited for Scarlet to come out! :) Curious to see what you think of it!

  2. My library requests frequently arrive in an avalanche, too, so it’s either feast or famine with having library books at home. I liked Cinder but found it a little underwhelming considering all of the buzz surrounding it. I look forward to your review of it. Enjoy all of your books, and thanks for stopping by!

  3. I have heard a lot about Thousand Days, hope you enjoy.
    Happy reading,

  4. I loved Cinder & want to read Vessel too. And I have Venom but haven’t read it! Awesome haul :D

    My Haul!

  5. I am so interested in Shannon Hale’s book, I loved Cinder and I want to read the Rapunzel retelling! Great haul!

  6. Read Cinder as fast as possible! It’s awesome :D

  7. I love Shannon Hale, but I didn’t really like Book of a Thousand Days. I hope you do though. Cinder is one that I’m still dying to read. I hope you enjoy all of them.

    Here’s mine.

    I know how the library trouble feels!! I tend to go on some mad borrowing sprees in libraries and end up not being able to finish them before the deadlines >.< Hope I'll manage myself better next time heh. Anyway, I WANT TO READ CINDER!! So many fabulous reviews and Scarlet's out soon, quite a good timing ;) Enjoy reading, Merin!

    Great choices this week in books! :) I hope you enjoy Venom by Fiona Paul, it is gorgeously crafted in storytelling, and the setting is overall breathtaking :)

    Happy Reading!

      Thank you! I’ve heard mixed things about Venom, so didn’t want to buy it, but jumped at the chance to borrow it from the library. I hope I end up loving it, as I adore historical fiction! :)
