Stacking the Shelves [2]

With midterms and school, I can't believe that it's time to do this again!


Seeing as my list hasn't changed much since last week, I thought I'd take pictures to change it up a bit. 

City of Bones and City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare
I've heard so many good things about this series, so I'm excited to jump into it!
"When Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in NYC, she hardly expects to witness a murder. Much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with odd markings..."

XVI by Julia Karr 
A friend, who absolutely positively never reads, recommended this to me. So, I'm excited to get started!
"Some girls can't wait to be sixteen, to be legal. Nina is not one of them. Even though she has no choice in the matter, she knows that so long as her life continues as normal, everything will be okay..."

The Host by Stephanie Meyer 
Because who hasn't heard of this book? ;)
"Our world has been invaded by an unseen enemy. Humans become hosts for these invaders, their minds taken over while their bodies remain intact and continue their lives apparently unchanged..."

Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia 
Everyone's going crazy over this book it seems, I'm excited to give it a go! 
"... In a town with no surprises, one secret could change everything."

I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore 
Now, don't throw tomatoes at me, but I saw the movie first... *ducks* I know, I know... But I'm reading now!
"Nine of us came here. We look like you. We talk like you. We live amoung you - but we are not you. We have powers you dream of having. We are the superheroes you worship in movies and comic books - but we are real." 

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver 
Because after reading Delirium by her, I needed to get my hands on another book! (Book two to Delirium is in the mail)
"Friday, February 12th, should be just another day in her charmed life. Instead, it turns out to be her last. The catch: Samantha still wakes up the next morning. "

After by Amy Efaw 
I've had this for a while, I kinda forgot about it !
"Before it all, Devon was a good student, a good athlete, an all-around good girl. But then IT happened - the thing that was so horrible.... that Devon simply chose to not admit it to anyone, even herself." 

The Maze Runner by James Dashner 
I admit, I've been working on this one for a while. But I'm determined! 
"When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his first name. He has no recollection of his parents, his home, or how he got where he is. His memory is empty."

Blood Red Road by Moira Young 
I've had this one for a while too, I was a little turned off by the spelling - but I'll continue!
"I cain't speak. Cain't breathe. Lugh's gone. Gone. My golden heart is gone. I kneel in the dust. The tears roll down my face. An a hard red rain starts to fall." 

So there we have it! My list. 
~ I have two more coming in the mail - The Great Gatsby and the second to the Delirium series. 

Any suggestions on what to read next?


  1. I'm familiar with all your books, but I haven't read any of them. Great haul of books.

    My StS

  4. I still need to read Beautiful Creatures and Blood Red Road looks interesting. Great stack!

  5. Ooh nice haul! Haven't really read these either. Tried reading Beautiful Creatures some years ago, but couldn't get into it. Still hope you enjoy them all!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, be sure to stop by!

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    Old Follower :)

  6. Oh my, oh my! So many awesome books you have! I absolutely loved: Mortal Instrument Series, The Host, XVI, I am Number Four, and Blood Red Road. As for Lauren Oliver, I love her Delirium series. You are in for a treat with these next few books!

    Thanks for visiting my haul.

  7. I really want to read Before I Fall. I'm so drawn in by that cover. :) I've been listening to the City of Bones audiobook for a couple weeks now - it's amazing! I really think this is going to be a series I will love. :) Enjoy!

  8. Really enjoyed The Mortal Instruments Series, I hope you will too!!! Eeeeeek I can not express just how much I love The Host. Ah such a great book. Blood Red Road is still sitting on my desk waiting for love. Can't wait to read your reviews on all your books and thank you so much for stopping by my blog and commenting and following!! 8) New Follower! Happy Reading and love the pictures!

  9. Wow awesome week! I loved The Mortal Instruments and I have Beautiful Creatures in my pile to read =) I hope you enjoy all your books!

  10. Awesome haul!
    I don't know about you, but I like the paperback cover of Blood Red Road better than the hardcover one. The hardcover one looks...dry.

  11. Great haul! This is a great time to read City of Bones & Beautiful Creatures, since the movies will be coming out next year. I liked them both. I also loved Blood Red Road and The Maze Runner. I still haven't read The Host either, but I plan to before the movie comes out. Enjoy your books!

    My STS:

  12. I enjoyed 'Blood Red Road'. You're right, the colloquialism took a little while to get used to (what threw me off more than the spelling was the complete lack of quote marks, because sometimes I wasn't sure what lines were thoughts and which were dialogue). The plot is killer, though.

    Returning your follow via GFC -- thanks for stopping by my blog!

  13. You and I have sooo many similar books to read :P Darn school! Thanks for stopping by my blog!
