Stacking the Shelves (#16)

"Stacking The Shelves" is a weekly (in my case monthly - every last Saturday of the month) meme, hosted by Tynga's Reviews, where you show all your purchased/received books - physical or ebook.

Weekend, wohoo! Do you have any plans for this gorgeous time of the week? I just made donuts and THEY TASTE AMAZING. Ever since I found this blog - biggerbolderbaking.com - I'm constantly trying out new things! She has so many delicious recipes! But now let's have a look at the books I bought/got this month! I actually didn't want to buy any but ... well, as you can see that didn't work - I only bough Truthwitch, The Young Elites & The Rose Society though. I won Girl Online in a giveaway (the first ever I won, wohoo!!) and got the others from my lovely Melissa! ♥

Truthwitch, Girl Online, The Young Elites, The Rose Society, Soundless & I'll give you the sun - missing: Peter Pan
 
Physial copies and E-books I bought/received:
  • Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
  • Soundless by Richelle Mead
  • I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson
  • Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie (Puffin Chalk edition)
  • Girl Online by Zoe Sugg
  • The Young Elites by Marie Lu
  • The Rose Society by Marie Lu

Which books did you get this month? Leave a link to your post and I'll check it out! :)

      1. Eeeep! I'm also so excited! You should've seen my face when I opened the package and saw it! I LOVE IT SO MUCH. It's so incredibly pretty, gaaah! <3

    2. Woah, you got so many beautiful books! I've heard so many things about Truthwitch, so I really want to read it soon - you'll have to let me know what you think! Soundless looks amazing too ♥

      I recently got the last two books in the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series, and I can't wait to read them! They're such beautiful books too, and I love the covers. I think they will take me a while, because they're so thick, and the print is so small!

      1. I will! I mostly heard good things as well, so I'm pretty excited! :D Oh and Soundless? Not so good. I didn't like it, even though I really enjoyed all the other books I read by Richelle Mead ... Soundless was below average though (for me). I'll post my review of it soon! ;)

        Ohhh I have them too! Got them in 2014 as a boxed set but haven't read them yet ... probably because they're so huge, haha. I'm sure you'll finish them before I even started. :P

    4. TRUTHWITCH IS SO SO GOOD! :O And I'm a HUGE fan of the Young Elites as well. Loved I'll give you the sun too. (Which I didn't expect because I pretty much hated The Sky Is Everywhere.) You got so many great books this month! I still need to read Soundless, but you were not a fan of it and neither is everyone else.. so I'll probably leave it on my shelf for a while.. ;D

      1. Oh my god, I bought The Young Elites because of your "Rip it or Ship it" pair!!! I just need to know about Adelina so I can ship her with Rhysand as well. YOU MADE ME SO CURIOUS! :D

        God no, please don't read Soundless. I was super disappointed, ugh. It'll be the next review I'll post (probably on Tuesday?), so yeah. Just no. No, no, no.

        Delete
      2. Haha, whoa, I feel honored. XD Anyway, just keep in mind that Adelina is NOT a nice person and that lots of people hated her.. But I can't help it, I feel really protective of my white wolf. <3 (a) (ALSO RHYS BETTER BE A HUUUUUGE CHARACTER IN ACOMAF!)

        I'll definitely read your review before reading Soundless! I'm curious!

      3. But isn't that ... good? Refreshing? Most MC's are the good ones and I've ALWAYS wanted to read a "villain"'s POV - even though she's not a villain ... at least she's not nice. :P

        AND YES!!! I'M DESPERATE TO READ MORE ABOUT HIM! <3

    5. I can't wait to hear what you think of Truthwitch. I can't make up my mind if I should buy it yet or not. :P

      Happy Reading!

      1. Thank you, haha. :D I actually haven't read or watched Game of Thrones ... expect for the first episode. I quite liked it? I don't know, I should probably give it another try sometime. :D
