Stacking the Shelves – Sunday 21st July 2013

STSmall

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme created and hosted by Tynga @ Tynga’s Reviews. It gives bloggers the chance to show their readers books they’ve bought, borrowed or received during the week.

I’ve had a great week book wise. Have a look at my acquisitions for this week:

The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson

The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson

The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson – I got this book to review from The Reading Room and I’ve only just started it but I’m surprised by just how funny it is. It’s beautiful and fantastically eccentric. I’m really enjoying it.

The Inevitability of Stars by Kathryn R Lyster

The Inevitability of Stars by Kathryn R Lyster

The Inevitability of Stars by Kathryn R. Lyster (Harlequin) – This book is a new adult novel set in Byron Bay and Sydney. The cover is absolutely gorgeous and the blurb is so enticing… “A modern-day Romeo and Juliet set amongst the beauty of Byron Bay and the grind of Sydney.”

Siege by Sarah Mussi and the film Upside Down

I was lucky enough to win this dystopian pack from Date A Book. Siege by Sarah Mussi (great photo skillz there. I managed to cover up the authors name. It’s SARAH MUSSI!) and the Kirsten Dunst movie, Upside Down.

If I Stay by Gayle Forman

If I Stay by Gayle Forman

And finally, If I Stay by Gayle Forman. This is one that I borrowed from my local library this week. They have a fantastic selection of books. I also picked up a couple of cookbooks! I’ve heard amazing things about If I Stay and am very eager to experience Gayle Forman’s writing for myself.

 

That’s the additions to my personal library for this week. 🙂 Feel free to leave me a comment telling me which books you got this week. Thanks 🙂

  1. The Sky is Everywhere is one of my favourite YA books – look put for a poem that describes grief as a house. I bought The Siege last week and I’m looking forward to trying it! 🙂

  2. I love love love The Sky Is Everywhere! Joe is just so irresistible! And If I Stay is heart-wrenching but absolutely amazing. I love the cover you got. It’s pretty. 🙂

    • It’s a few years old (first published in 2010) but it’s a beautiful story about a girl who’s sister died unexpectedly and she’s dealing with the aftermath. I’m really enjoying it. Thanks for visiting!

    • Thanks Alice! It probably won’t be long… This is a book that I haven’t wanted to put down.. and if I hadn’t needed to go to work and sleep I probably wouldn’t have! Hope you have a great week and thanks for visiting!

  3. I’ve heard The Sky is Everywhere is fantastic: I’m glad you’re enjoying it! If I Stay is one I’ve had my eyes on for a while now… I’m thinking I need to put that one on the wishlist!

    • Oohh… I love endorsements of books I’m going to read! So glad you enjoyed them so much. And all the cool kids have this blog design 😉 oh my… I think I just reverted back to my twelve year old self with that sort of comment. Oh well! Hi! Thanks for visiting!

  4. I loved If I Should Stay by Gayle Forman! The cover for The Sky Is Everywhere is pretty, I will have to check that book out. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Reading!

  5. I can’t believe I still haven’t read The Sky Is Everywhere – it looks so good! If I Stay was pretty good, but I wasn’t as crazy about it as everyone else seemed to be. Thanks for stopping by my StS! 😀

  6. Looks like you got some fabulous books! If I Stay is definitely a story that sticks with you. I don’t like some of the content in her books, but I have still enjoyed each one of them. Thanks for stopping by!
