Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews featuring the books we got this week, and I also mention blog news/happenings of the past week

Don’t miss your chance to win some fab ARCs! Also, since there’s only a couple weeks left until Google Reader goes bye bye and in case you missed it, I compared 2 of the biggest alternatives here.

    Wow, what a fantastic haul this week, Giselle! I’m definitely envious of your copy of This Song Will Save Your Life and Racing Savannah! I’ve seriously only heard really amazing things about This Song. And Racing Savannah–come on. It’s Miranda Kenneally! I’m sure this one will be no less awesome than her previous books.

    I hope you enjoy all your books! Happy reading, Giselle! 🙂

    I heard Kara talking about Red on her blog this morning. Sounds interesting 🙂 Really interested and excited about Altered as well. Can’t wait to see what happens next. Enjoy your reading!

    Now this is one epic haul. I saw Red on NetGalley but never requested it as I had never seen it before but I just checked the synopsis- seriously unique. And This Song Will Save Your Life! Eep! It’s one of my favourite titles for some reason.

    Enjoy reading those pretty books and have a brilliant week, chick! <33

    GAH RED!!! I totally want that and Racing Savannah sounds so amazingly awesome!! Altered looks fantastic, too, I’m like just dying for the cover to be released. DUDE Leila Sales who wrote This Song Will Save Your Life LOVES Les Mis, which automatically makes her uber cool, because seriously! It’s like, so awesome. I need a moment to fangirl dfjlasdjfklsjf

    Fantastic haul, Giselle!!

    I’m excited for Altered, even though I didn’t love book one, I was completely intriqued by where that ending was going to lead to in the sequel! Glad to hear you loved it!

  7. Tabitha

    AH! So many incredible books – I love Leila Sales and Miranda Kenneally, so I’m excited for you to have those two books and then Red! I just looked at that one on Goodreads and it sounds really good!! AH! It sounds interesting, the whole thing with the red hair.

    Hope you enjoy all of these books!!

  8. Megan K.

    AHHH, super jealous you got Altered! I also received This Song Will Save Your Life last week, so I’m really excited to get started on it. The cover’s lovely. 🙂 The others look really good, so I hope you enjoy them! Have a lovely week, Giselle.

  9. Amy

    Ohh Red!! I really want to read that one!! I got Altered this week too!! And the audio of A Trick of the Light. Hope you enjoyed the movie! Great haul babe!!

  10. Paige

    A lot of people seem to be getting a Trick of the Light! I read it back a few months ago and the plot was kinda strange but I enjoyed the book anyways 🙂 I hope you enjoy everything! 🙂

    You got some really good titles. Freak Boy sounds interesting as it’s new to me. I love coming here and seeing what you got every week. It’s so nice and breezy here.

  12. Hollie

    This Song Will Save Your Life looks like such an amazing book, I can’t wait to see what you think of it! I still need to read Crewel, especially as Altered releases in October. Happy reading!

  13. Jesse Burgoyne

    I read A Trick of the Light a few weeks ago and it was really good! Weird, but that’s part of what makes it so good. Engines of the Broken World look fantastically creepy! Great haul!

  14. Kristin A.

    Red and Contamination nice! Not sure what Engines of the Broken World is about but that cover is fabulous!! So creepy. Six Months Later sounds interesting as well. Great haul this week! Happy Reading.

    haha I knew you’d be doubling up on some BEA books soon but YAY for loving Altered 😀 I’ve mostly never heard of any of the other books you got except Red and that series by Miranda Kenneally lol Happy reading!

      oups, forgot to mention: totally jelly that you went to see Man of Steel! We’re planning to go this week (I hope!) of at the latest, next week end 😀 Hope you enjoyed yourself!

  17. Megan R

    Oh, I can’t wait to hear what you think of Racing Savannah! It’s a horse book (well, at least partially), so I’m excited!

  18. Jasprit

    You are so lucky to have received copies of Red and Racing Savannah Giselle, I can’t wait to get my hands on both books. I too received a copy of This Song Will Save Your Life and the initial reviews I’ve seen have been great so far. I hope you enjoy all your reads! 🙂
