Stacking the Shelves #1

Meme Hosted by Tynga's Reviews

After reading up around the drama that hit the book blogging community a couple of weeks ago, I have decided not to participate in "In My Mailbox" anymore. Instead I have decided to move to Stacking the Shelves where I will be showing what books I have got.

I have only got four books in the past two weeks but this has to be one of the best book weeks of the year so far.

Three books, that I couldn't wait, for in one week!!

Bought from
  •  The Immortal Rules (Blood of Eden #1) - Julie Kagawa *Goodreads*
  • Insurgent (Divergent #2) - Veronica Roth *Goodreads*
  • Black Dawn (The Morganville Vampires # 12) -Rachel Caine *Goodreads*

Bought from Bookshop.
  • City of Lost Souls (The Mortal Instruments #5) - Cassandra Clare *Goodreads*

I have already read The Immortal Rules, Insurgent and COLS. Now I am reading Black Dawn.

You can find my review for Insurgent here.
You can find my review for The Immortal Rules here.

I absolutely love Insurgent and City of Lost Souls. Even though I am in the middle of uni work, having to meet a lot of deadlines and exams looming, I still managed to read both of them in a day each (Not together. Two 500 pages books in one day is a bit much for me). 5 Stars!!!

I am aware that there is an embargo on City of Lost Souls. I was very shocked when I walked into my local bookshop to see a massive pile available. I'm sorry but it's COLS. I wasn't going to wait. Screwed up my plans for that day. I started reading at 15:00 and finished at about 22:00. Could not put it down!! Same could be said for Insurgent. Didn't stop reading until I was finished.

I also enjoyed The Immortal Rules although not as much as the other two books.

As for Black Dawn, not that I don't love Morganville Vampires, but this has been a bit of a crazy week for both work and books. I haven't got round to sitting down and properly reading it. Now that everything has calmed down, I can sit back and read. I have only read a few chapters but I am enjoying it so far.

What books did you get this week?



  1. What a beautiful stacking the shelves you have. New follower. Come visit me and check out what I got as well.

    Happy reading! Here's my StS.

  3. I've seen The Immortal Rules a lot lately :-) I'm thinking I might have to check that one out! I loved her Iron Fey series..


  4. Excellent haul! I'm really late to the Divergent party- it's been sitting on my shelf for quite some time. I've really got to read it soon.

    1. Don't worry. I am not a fan of Julie's Iron Fey series or books by Jennifer L. Armentrout while everyone else seems to love them. Not every popular book is for everyone.
