Stacking the Shelves #16

Meme Hosted by Tynga's Reviews

Oh God I am going back to university tomorrow and I still haven't finished packing. This should be interesting.

For Review

Death and the Girl Next Door (Darklight #1) by Darynda Jones

The synopsis is just full of mystery. This book looks interesting.

Thanks to St Martin's Press for the review copy.

Bought
Angelfall (Penryn & the End of Days #1) by Susan Ee
Goodreads

I have heard nothing but good things about this book. 56 reviews on Amazon.co.uk. 53 of which are 5 stars. The other three reviews are 4 stars. Ok maybe it is not a good thing to have such high expectations but with ratings like that ...

Also it will probably not be long, if has not already happened, before a big main stream publisher snaps it up. This will be a good thing for the author and the series but not such a good thing for a poor student if the price for the Kindle edition rises. So I got it now.

The Raven Boys (Raven Cycle #1) by Maggie Stiefvater

I have again heard nothing but good things about this book as well. The synopsis also really intrigued me. I like to think that my gut is trustworthy and I have a good feeling about this book. I hope I am not wrong. I have read Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater before and wasn't enthralled. However I am willing to give authors another shot. I hope The Raven Boys will do better.

  2. The Raven Boys really sounds good. I wasn't in love with SHiver either, but would like to try this one. Hope you find it better than her previous books.

  9. I'm a fan of Darynda's. I like her Charley Davidson series and her YA sounds like it will be just as good.
