Stacking the Shelves #1

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by one of my favorite bloggers, Tynga on Tynga's Reviews. This is a meme where we talk about new books, physical or virtual, that we have added to our shelves the past week. Librarybooks, other borrowed books etc are also included.

Due to wedding - preparations (yes, I am getting married in June) and work, my English blog have been seriously neglected. I am so sorry for that. But I am here again now, and these are some of the books I have gotten the past weeks and months:

Bought:
Wendy Higgins: Sweet Evil
Patrick Ness: The Knife of Never Letting Go
Jennifer Bosworth: Struck
Elizabeth Norris: Unraveling
Cat Hellisen: When the Sea is Rising Red

Jennifer A. Nielsen: The False Prince

Veronica Roth: Insurgent

Oh my God you have such a great haul that I don't even know where to start! The Immortal Rules, Insurgent, and the False Prince were all really good, and I have a bunch of those books on my Kindle but I haven't started it yet. I'm so jealous you have Unraveling, though, I've heard such great things about it and I hope you enjoy all your AWESOME books!

@Keri: I was so happy then they approved me for it on Netgalley. Love the cover.

@Eileen: The haul is a result of many weeks. I like The Immortal Rules so far. And thank you for the congratulations :) We have been together for almost 8 years and are really happy. He is the love of my life and my best friend all wrapped up in one.

I just finished the Sweetest Dark. I'm impressed you had any time for the blog. Weddings are a lot of work. Here is my post:

I listened to Divergent on audio so I had to listen to Insurgent on audio. All I can say is OMG! What a nerve wracking book. There were parts where I wanted to just choke someone, cry, puke from nerves, laugh and cry. Veronica Roth is a GENIUS in her story telling. Tris' life only keeps getting more complicated instead of easier. Tobias aka Four is by her side one minute, gone the next in a viscious cycle.

I don't honestly know how one girl, 16 years of age, can be this strong. Not that I doubt it can happen for one minute but it sure makes you think "what if it were me" and that is enough to drive you crazy!

Sweet evil and Masque of the red death are high on my to buy list. I'm reading The immortal rules right now and I think it's awesome so far!

I have Glitch waiting for me. And I'm jealous that you have Throne of glass :D

Happy reading! Very very nice mailbox.
