Stacking the Shelves (27)

Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!  The original meme was started over at Tynga's Reviews.  

I picked up 2 books from the library this week which I had on reserve.  I am in the middle of COYER, and have been trying to read my own books and arcs, but I had to grab these two when I saw they had came available:

Lumberjanes #1: Noelle Stevenson, Grace Ellis, Brooke A. Allen -
At Miss Qiunzilla Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet's camp for hard-core lady-types, things are not what they seem. Three-eyed foxes. Secret caves. Anagrams. Luckily, Jo, April, Mal, Molly, and Ripley are five rad, butt-kicking best pals determined to have an awesome summer together... And they're not gonna let a magical quest or an array of supernatural critters get in their way! The mystery keeps getting bigger, and it all begins here. 

Nimona: Noelle Stevenson -
Nemeses! Dragons! Science! Symbolism! All these and more await in this brilliantly subversive, sharply irreverent epic from Noelle Stevenson. Featuring an exclusive epilogue not seen in the web comic, along with bonus conceptual sketches and revised pages throughout, this gorgeous full-color graphic novel is perfect for the legions of fans of the web comic and is sure to win Noelle many new ones.

From Edelweiss I received:

The Subterranean Season: Dale Bailey.  This book has been described as a "darkly comic novel that explores the horrific possibilities of wish fulfillment."  Sounds good enough to me.  Plus the author is from West Virginia which doesn't happen that often.

From Netgalley I received:

George Clooney Lost Princess Rainy Day Sisters

I Will Marry George Clooney (by Christmas): Tracy Bloom.  This sounds like an funny romantic read  and sometimes I just need a book like that.  It is already out.
Lost Princess (Kingdom of Cymmera #1): Dani-Lyn Alexander. This comes out October 13, 2015 from Kensington Books and Lyrical Press.
Rainy Day Sisters: Kate Hewitt.  See the dog on the cover?  Of course I had to have it.  This one came out August 4, 2015 from Penguin.

And finally I received a request from Entangled Teen to read and review the following:

The Summer Marked (The Winter People #2): Rebekah L. Purdy.  This comes out September 22, 2015.  I am really liking that cover.

Thanks to Netgalley, Edelweiss and Entangled Teen for all the books this week.  Have you read any of these and what landed on your stack this week?


  1. I'm still battling to keep the tbr under control but another restrained haul this week is helping! I'm getting there...Hope you have a productive book week!

  2. The cover for The Summer Marked is gorgeous. I'm doing COYER too! It's been hard to avoid the library, but that's the only way I'll stick to my ARCs during COYER. Happy Reading :)

    1. Thanks Andrea. Unfortunately, I need to read the first in the series before I get to it. I have managed to only read one library book during COYER and have tried to focus on mine. I have sort of surprised myself as the library is my weakness.

  3. Great haul! Nimona is one that I've been wanting to check out. It sounds incredible.

  4. I have Nimona in my wish list. The cover for Lost Princess is really pretty, I hope you love them all :)

    1. I love the covers as well. Sad to say, I often judge a book by its cover.

  5. I have been wanting to read Nimona for so long because I have heard nothing but good things about it. I Will Marry George Clooney looks very interesting and funny. I hope you enjoy all these books.

    1. Who can pass up a book with George Clooney in the title? I hope it is as good as I think.

  6. Awesome haul!!!
    I really enjoy your blog so I nominated you for The Blogger Recognition Award. You can find more info here:

    1. Thanks for the nomination. I will get busy on my post about it this weekend.

  7. The Subterranean Season by Dale Bailey seems amazing :)
