Xpresso Weekly: Stacking the Shelves (34)

Posted by

Xpresso Weekly is my edition of Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga’s Reviews featuring the books I got this week, and I also mention blog news/happenings of the past week.
This week at Xpresso Reads

First, I’m sure every single one of us has a broken heart this weekend. It’s impossible to even express how devastating it feels to hear about all these beautiful little kids’ lives that ended much too soon. My heart goes out to the families of these angels and everyone affected by his tragedy.

    Tons of good ones! I snagged Madman’s Daughter too, I’m really hoping that one delivers, I love retellings. I’ve heard fantastic things about Karina Halle’s series I need to make that series a goal read in 2013. Happy Reading!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Audris

    Praying for all the families. I can’t even imagine what they are all going through :(.

    About the books, these all look amazing! I am really looking forward to Mind Games, Revolution 19 and Pretty Girl-13. Enjoy all your awesome books!

    I really enjoyed The Devil’s Metal and just finished Darkhouse, Halle is becoming a new favorite of mine. I like the contrast between her humor and horror.

    Pretty excited for Revolution 19 & The Madman’s Daughter.

    Happy reading!

    Eeep YAY for Imaginary Girls! Can’t wait to see what you think.

    I really need to get started on Halle’s EIT series, though I have to admit I kind of want to read The Devil’s Metal first. I have seen it compared, quite a few times, to Almost Famous and that is one of my all time fav movies. It’s all happening!

    Edelweiss had tons of great books this week and it looks like you snagged lots of goodies, The Madman’s Scientist, Pretty Girl 13 and Mind Games all sound epic, I will definitely be looking out for your updates on them! Also you’ve reminded me I really need to get to my copy of Imaginary Girls asap! I hope you enjoy all your reads! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I held off on The Madman’s Daughter and Wasteland because I don’t know if I will have time for them. (but yay! all of them are available to download for me so I can decide later!) My review for The Devil’s Metal goes up Tuesday. I really liked it!! I am so sad for all the families affected by the shooting. My heart goes out to all of them.

  8. Micheline D

    Oooh lucky you with Mind Games & Revolution 19!! The Madman’s Daughter looks right up your alley too, I can totally see you loving it. The other ones are new to me but most look really creepy so I’d say you’re all set haha Congrats on the goodies & happy reading!!

  9. Megan Reti

    He used to be entirely right. This post truly made my day.

    I went holy crap when I saw your Harper haul, and then remembered you now have the magic download button on Edelweiss. You’re so lucky! (Except I suck at reading digital stuff anyway, so WHATEVER.)

  15. Megan

    OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG! You have to read the Experiment in Terror series NOW!!! The Devil’s Metal was amazingly awesome, as well. Karina Halle is so amazingly talented. This series is my favorite series of 2012. Hands down!
