Stacking the Shelves (68)

Posted by

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.

How is everyone doing this week? I got back from my vacation on Tuesday and I finally met the fabulous Amy from Book Loving Mom! It was so awesome!  Then later today I’m off to see the TMI movie and see what that fuss is all about! Have you all seen it? I haven’t been on Twitter as much since I got back so I haven’t heard much feedback on it. And before you go, have you checked out Xpresso Book Tours lately? I have a few tours and blitzes open if you’d like to sign up – all listed on XBT’s sidebar! 🙂

I received for review:
False Sight by Dan Krokos
The Dark Unwinding by Sharon Cameron
Reality Boy by A.S. King
These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
Roomies by Sara Zarr & Tara Altebrando
Thornhill by Kathleen Peacock


*Big thanks to HarperCollins Canada, HarlequinTeen, Scholastic, Raincoast Books,  and Disney Book Group for these pretties*

I also got this from Amy which sounds super cute – thanks, love muffin!

Have a fab week! 🙂

Don’t forget to link me to your book haul!

    OMG I am so jealous of Thornhill and Waterfell! *goes off hunting to see if it’s on NetGalley* But seriously, I know how much you LOVED Hemlock, so I hope you love Thornhill just as much! Although I can’t remember if you’ve already read it or I’m just mixing you up with a different review I saw earlier or I don’t know if you’ve got it already and this is a double it is way too late for me to be thinking right now. But bahaha I saw your Instagram about your third False Sight ARC, I hope you have fun with it! 🙂

    Fantastic haul, Giselle! <33

    I still haven’t read Hemlock yet, but I’m excited about Thornhill. I’ll look forward to your review for it. 🙂 And your haul is fantastic. They’re are so many books there that I would like to read. Happy reading. 🙂

    I don’t know much about These Broken Stars. I have heard it’s very good, though. I’m not that familiar with the other ones, but I have seen Reality Boy a bunch lately.

    I hope you enjoy all of those books!

  4. Jen

    *drools* SO MANY PRETTY BOOKS, GISELLE. How are you going to choose what to read next?!? Waterfell looks and sounds good. Happy reading, dear!

  5. Jessica @ Step Into Fiction

    False Sight is amazing; totally in love with this series! I have an ARC of These Broken Stars and I can’t wait to read it. The cover is amazing and I’ve heard great great things about this book! I just got Waterfell this week, too! It sounds interesting!

    Enjoy all your awesome books! Here’s my haul

    • Giselle

      Yeah I’ve already reviewed it and this is the 3rd copy I received haha. I got one at BEA and then Disney sent me a copy twice for some reason >.<

  6. Amy @ Book Loving Mom

    Ohhhh! Thornhill!!! I loved Hemlock and am really looking forward to that one! I’m supposed to be getting The Dark Unwinding and the sequel, but they haven’t arrived yet. It was so awesome to finally meet you!! Also, I saw TMI movie and I liked it. Yes, they changed some things… one major thing, but I understand why they did. I also think it was good for people who haven’t read the books. Some books to movies aren’t. Great haul love!!

  7. Ashley

    I’m jealous of Waterfell! My request for that is still pending. Le sigh.

    I saw TMI this weekend. I felt the exact same way about the movie as I did the book: it was okay. I didn’t think it was great or horrible. I’m curious to see what you think!

  8. Pili

    Oh my goodness!! I’m so completely and insanely jealous of you getting These Broken Stars!! That’s one book I’m totally dying to get!! Any way I can bribe you for it??

  9. Charlotte

    Argh, Giselle! I just received my rejection mail for Waterfell this morning. Maybe, I’ll just have to wait your review for that one and make up my mind whether to buy it or not. 😀

    And regarding TMI, yep, watched it the other day. For me, it was okay. I wan’t impressed with Jace’s hair though. And Alec was kind of “meh.”

    Have a fun weekend, Giselle!

  10. Vivian

    Thornhill!!! So wanna read that! Also looking forward to Waterfell, which I also got on NG! I am interested in Krokos’ books, too, heard good things about it. And I just love the cover of These Broken Stars! Hoping that’s a good one since I have to read/review it in a couple months. Great haul!

  11. Jackie

    I neeed (and I really mean need) These Broken Stars. It’s like the number one on my tbr list 😀 Great haul!
    Happy reading

  12. Molli

    These Broken Stars was AMAZING. I really really hope you love it like I did, Giselle! (Also totally jelly of Thornhill, not even gonna lie.) <3

  13. Christina (A Reader of Fictions)

    AHHHHH! I do not have to be jealous of you once again! The Dark Unwinding is awesome. Even Jenni liked it, so if you don’t we will kick you out of our bitching blogger tree house. Oh, what’s that? You didn’t know about our club? Then forget I said anything.

    So excited to read These Broken Stara and Reality Boy.

    Be prepared for False Sight to be REALLY different. Or maybe you already read it. Actually, I think you did and your review had that same warning but I don’t read reviews of books I’m planning to read. Curse my unpreparedness!

    I am curious about Roomies. Also, I want to read Kathleen Peacock’s first book. Tell me if this is a mistake.

  14. Micheline @ lunar-rainbows

    Oh some of those look like BEA duplicates, though I can’t remember you you snagged These Broken Stars too but I’m pretty sure you got False Sight since you’re the one that gave me False Memory LOL

    The Dark Unwinding is one that’s been growing on me and now I want to read it! Oh and I’m curious about Reality Boy, but you’ll be my guinea pig review before I commit >.< Happy reading ♥
