Stacking the Shelves (3)

Stacking The Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews where we share the books we've bought, borrowed, received or downloaded each week!


(Links go to Goodreads)


Bought:


Artemis Fowl and The Last Guardian - Eoin Colfer (My review)


Borrowed:

Went to the library again and got these lovely books:


A Confusion of Princes - Garth Nix

The Piper's Son - Melina Marchetta
Vampire Academy - Richelle Mead
Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone - Kat Rosenfield
Invincible Summer - Hannah Moskowitz

Have been wanting to read all of these! Haven't decided what I'll read first out of my library books but I have yet to read the Vampire Academy series and tons of people have recommended it to me, so I might start with that! Any suggestions?

Link me to your STS because I'd love to see what you got!

  1. Most of those books I'm not familiar with but I do have Vampire Academy in my TBR Mountain. Happy reading :)

    1. Haha that was me a day ago! I've officially been converted though. Really loved it! Thanks, Eileen! Checked out your STS and loved your vlog as usual.

  3. I haven't read any of the book you got this week, but almost all of them are on my list. I've only read the first Artemis Fowl, and someday I would like to finish that series. Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy!

  4. I haven't read most of these, although Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone looks particularly good. Vampire Academy I have read, and it's so good! I hope you enjoy it! :)

    1. Omg I LOVED it, A! Will post my review soon... as soon as I do my Finnikin of the Rock one, gahh. Have no excuse to be so behind.

  5. Nice list! John Green just blogged about Amelia is Dead and Gone, and it is getting great hype. Plus I love John Green's books (and vlogs) and believe him when he says it is great.

    Have you seen that The Fake Steph Dot Com is doing a Vampire Academy re-read this summer? It is convincing me that I, like you, should jump on the VA bandwagon. :-)

    I love your blog. I have nominated you for a Liebster award from our blog Young Adult Fiction and Whiskey Sours. yafictionandwhiskeysours.blogspot.com

    Check it out, keep up the awesomeness, and pass on the Liebster love!

    1. Oooh I didn't know he blogged about it! A John Green stamp of approval is definitely trustworthy!

      And no, I did not know that!!! I actually have never been to that blog, will check it out now! Thanks for the heads-up! I just finished the first one and it was actually a really fun read. Probably wouldn't rank high on your Harry Potter scale but was engaging and really fast-paced, you should check it out :P. Will definitely be reading the rest!

      Thanks so much for the Liebster; I'll be posting it up soon! <3

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Tammy! Amelia Anne looks so amazing. I was surprised my library had it given how new it is. Will let you know if I like it! And don't worry, I don't do STS every week either because I just don't get books that often! :) Can't wait to see your next one.

  12. I've heard a lot of great things about Vampire Academy but I've been sceptical about reading the series. I really want to read Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone so I'd love to know your thoughts on it. Happy reading. :)

    1. I know exactly what you mean! Totally a case of judging its book by its cover for me. So glad there are so many other awesome bloggers who've managed to convince me otherwise. I just read the first and it was sooo cute! Hope you pick it up!

      As for Amelia Anne, I'm reading it soon so I'll definitely let you know. :) Thanks!

  15. Oh I see from your currently reading that you decided to start with Vampire Academy! I hope you enjoy it, I thought it was really good.. I haven't started the rest of the series yet thought.

    Great Haul!

    1. Yup, finished it! I loved it! It was soo cute; so glad people convinced me to read it! Thanks Lauren. :) If you read it let me know, would love to read it at the same time as someone else to compare!

  16. Ohhh, the one that caught my attention was the Garth Nix. A Confusion of Princes. I'll be interested to hear your thoughts because I really enjoyed Garth Nix's Abhorsen triology, but haven't picked anything else up by him. I do have Mister Monday to read, but I hadn't heard of this one.

    The other one which caught my attention was Vampire Academy. I have that to read too. I've heard lots of positive things about it and I've been meaning to read it for ages! :)

    Hope you enjoy and have a happy weekend!

    1. Me too! I absolutely love the Abhorsen trilogy and was so excited to see this. It's also gotten great reviews so can't wait to get to it! I'll keep you updated.

      Ugh I was the same with VA! Just finished it and loved it!!! Definitely read it, I totally understand the appeal.

      And thanks Livvy! You too! (Or I guess week now that it's Sunday) :)

  17. *High five* for Vampire Academy. I just love the world building in those books and I am even loving the spin off series (Bloodlines) even more. Richelle Mead is just such an awesome writer. Her series are always very fun! I can't wait to see what you think of it. My favorite-ist (lol) character in the series appears in book 2 of Vampire Academy (Frostbite).

    Well, enough of my VA fangirling, LOL.

    Awesome haul, Lauren!

    And... happy reading ;)

    1. I'll write my review soon! Pleasantly surprised by it, you always convince me to read these great books! Kind of skipped 4 books on my TBR to read the second book lol, I'm just racing through them. When I'm done we can fangirl together. :)

  18. Lauren, I started to read The Vampire Academy a few months ago but ended up picking up another book instead. Let me know if it is worth sticking with!

    I've had quite a haul this week, too: The Best Kind of Mail

    1. I really liked it, actually! I'll write my review soon but basically if you want a fun paranormal read VA is perfect! It's definitely very YA though, whatever that means, so if you're feeling critical or are in the mood for something with a little more depth it's probably not a good choice. But great for Summer!

      Thanks for stopping by Rosie, I'll check out your haul now!

  19. Great set! Yay for Piper's Son. Love Marchetta. I love Vampire Academy too.
