Jenni’s Stacking the Shelves [June 14]

Posted by

Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews featuring new additions to our bookshelves.

I know what you’re thinking, “It’s Saturday! What am I doing staring at Jenni’s mug when it’s supposed to be Fresh Batch day?!” I apologize for the disappointment, I do.  Unfortunately Giselle is sick and even sitting on the computer makes her feel like barfing. Seriously, she said to let everyone know that “Fresh Batch might not happen this weekend because barf.” Her words exactly, I swear.  I don’t have the awesome skills it takes to pull of the weekly FB post so I am here a day early with my STS! I even made a video, so here goes:

Hi! I’m Jenni and I am a book-a-holic. I live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and more than anything, I love reading. I mostly read within the YA genre though I do venture into middle grade and adult from time to time. I was big into reading in high school but then when I had my children I stepped away from it for a bit. Now that my brats are a bit older and I have more time on my hands I have jumped back into it head on.

    Haha Jenni! Your videos are a riot to watch. :D
    Loved how you couldn’t remember the name of the first book in that Megan Spooner series! :D
    I can’t wait for you to read Something Real. I think you’re going to absolutely love it. Also, I’m going to wait to see what you think of Falling Into Place and Lies We Tell Ourselves before deciding to read those. They are already so hyped. It’s actually worrisome.
    Enjoy your reads this week, Jenni. :)
    Also, I hope you and Giselle feel better soon!

    So many awesome books Jenni! Wow! I hope you and Giselle get well soon. Being sick absolutely sucks. I’m reading The Girl With All The Gifts. So very good! Have a fantastic weekend!

  3. Mel@thedailyprophecy

    The girl with all the gifts sounds amazing (and my name is in it :D) I can’t wait to read The moment collector/The vanishing season. I absolutely love Tiger Lily, so I look forward to read something else from her. Afterworlds is huge and I snagged Falling into place from Edelweiss.

    Feel better soon Giselle and happy reading Jenni :)

    Starting off with a random though (albeit somewhat related)… I’VE BEEN PRONOUNCING GISELLE’S NAME WRONG THIS ENTIRE TIME? WHAT? Noooooooo

    Also I think everyone is starting to get a summer cold. I’ve had mine for a while now and it’s finally getting better but it won’t go away!

    I burst into laughter when you couldn’t remember the name for ‘the first book in this series’ (I am sure you already looked it up :P).

    I had so much fun watching this! :D YOU’RE SO ADORABLE. *tackle hugs you*
    (it’s okay, we both have colds)

    HAPPY READING JENNI!

    Awww, I really hope Giselle feels better! Tell her to stay away from the computer, and no barf!

    I’m seriously jealous of some of these books, Jenni! I’m really looking forward to reading This Shattered World. I haven’t heard much about The Moment Collector, but it seems so interesting, so I’ll definitely be checking that one out. Also, I can’t wait to see what you think about Falling into Place because I L O V E D that book to pieces. Seriously. It’s the kind of book you won’t be able to put down, just an fyi. ;)

    Lovely v-log, and happy reading! <3

    I read Between the Lives last year and it was a great book. I’m glad others finally have the chance to see it (though that cover change ugh). I do wish she’d make a sequel but alas standalone. I saw the second Starbound book in your haul. I’m really unsure if I’m going to read it. I don’t really want to read Companion books when the main story still needs more told. Anywho…great haul this week. I hope you enjoy all your books!

    Eh, sucks that both you and Giselle came down with the flu at the same time. :/ My mom’s coming down with it as well — probably just the weather because it’s getting HOTTT. But great haul, Jenni! I’m so jealous you managed to snag a copy of The Girl With All the Gifts. I read Wendy’s (The Midnight Garden) review of it and became absolutely hooked. Plus, it sounds just like my kind of story. And EEEP, This Shattered World?!?!?!?! I hope you enjoy it, because I really liked These Broken Stars and it would be a shame if the sequel suffered from second-book syndrome. >.< Hopefully I can get a copy myself, if it's up on NG…

    Great haul, Jenni! I hope none of these books are disappointments. You and Giselle better get as much rest as possible, too. :)

    I didn’t want to read Broken Monsters until I read the blurb at BEA, and I finally scoped out a copy from another blogger (YAH!).

    I also picked up The Girl with All the Gifts for Kindle. I’m excited to read it soon.
