Stacking the Shelves {2}

Stacking the Shelves is a weekend feature created by Tynga's Reviews in which bloggers share the books they've acquired over the week.

You guys, I really, really, really need to stop making so many trips to the library! Whenever I'm there, I'm worse than a kid in a candy store. I make a beeline for the YA section, zone out the books I originally came to get, and then browse for a bit. It's the browsing that always gets me in trouble. Usually it starts with me seeing a book spine with pretty font or design. I grab it, scan the summary on the cover flap, and if I like it, in the book goes right into my canvas bag. Never mind the fact that I've already got a stack of books a mile high at home. Or that I already have ten other books in my bag. Or that I'm checking out a sequel to a book I haven't even read yet. I'm an unstoppable monster!

Anyway, the library gods must have been looking down fondly on me this week because I somehow got my hands on a copy of The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender!  It's been on my TBR list for months and I am so excited to finally have the chance to read it! During my browsing, I also picked up a few other books:

1. The Book of Dead Days by Marcus Sedgwick
2. Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi
3. On Little Wings by Regina Sirois
4. Shatter Me (e-book) by Tahereh Mafi (which I downloaded to my e-reader when I got home because the library didn't have a physical copy)
Now the real question is how many of these will I actually finish, haha. 
So tell me: what books did you get this week? Are you reading anything at the moment that you're particularly enjoying?


  1. I am very interested to see what you think of Shatter Me!

  2. I would be the same way as you if I went to the library more often. :D Resisting books is hard! I had a real problem with that in the last couple weeks, so I picked up quite a few.

    I haven't heard of either The Book of Dead Days (I love that title) or On Little Wings, but I will have to look them up. I have read both Shatter Me and Unravel Me, though--they're two of my favorites! The series is a fantastic one and I hope you end up enjoying the books as much as I did.

    1. I'd never heard of On Little Wings, either. I came across it totally by chance and thought it looked like a good pre-summer read :)

  3. I really need to catch up with the Shatter me series, I haven't even read the first book! Happy reading :)


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment! I read every single one and they brighten my day. While I may not be able to respond to all comments, I do make an effort to visit your blogs if you include a link! :)
