Stacking the Shelves #30

Welcome to Stacking The Shelves! Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga Reviews and is a meme to share those books, both print and e-book, that have been added to your shelves in the last week/s.

It's been a long long time since I last did a stacking the shelves but I am really looking to start doing them again.  And considering the big book week I had this week, it seemed a good time to do another one.

My review of Taste by Juliet Madison, the fourth book in the Delta Girls series went live this week, as did a cool giveaway.  Have you entered yet? This week, stay tuned for my stop of the Nobody's Lady by Amy McNulty Blog Tour along with a couple of other reviews set to go live this week.

In terms of reading, I have spent the last week completely devouring all five books of the covenant series by jennifer Armentrout and have just started book 2 of the Titans series, which is the New Adult series by Jennifer Armentrout set a year after the Sentinel.  I have really been enjoying this series and look forward to finishing The Power sometime tonight or tomorrow morning :-)

In terms of reading this week, I have a mountain of review books to read, as well as books for various goodreads challenges I am participating in but more about those a little further down.  it's definitely looking to be a busy reading week for me, so its lucky its set to be a quiet week on the RL side especially given how busy the last month has been with Easter, holidays and my daughters birthday.  Looking forward to a little reading time :-)

And yes there is a small theme running through my photos today :-)

Have a great week!

Ruined (Ruined #1) by Amy Tintera

Emelina Flores has nothing. Her home in Ruina has been ravaged by war. She lacks the powers of her fellow Ruined. Worst of all, she witnessed her parents’ brutal murders and watched helplessly as her sister, Olivia, was kidnapped.

But because Em has nothing, she has nothing to lose. Driven by a blind desire for revenge, Em sets off on a dangerous journey to the enemy kingdom of Lera. Somewhere within Lera’s borders, Em hopes to find Olivia. But in order to find her, Em must infiltrate the royal family.
In a brilliant, elaborate plan of deception and murder, Em marries Prince Casimir, next in line to take Lera’s throne. If anyone in Lera discovers Em is not Casimir’s true betrothed, Em will be executed on the spot. But it’s the only way to salvage Em’s kingdom and what is left of her family.

Em is determined to succeed, but the closer she gets to the prince, the more she questions her mission. Em’s rage-filled heart begins to soften. But with her life—and her family—on the line, love could be Em’s deadliest mistake.

Purchased - Print Books

My library has had a book sale for the past few months at 20 cents per book so I have been snapping them up whenever I see an author or title I like.  The left hand column is books i have purchased from the library sale

The right column is books i have purchased or purchases/pre-orders that have arrived this week.  I am particularly excited for The Glittering Court, which finally arrived this week and finally got myself a print copy of Night study in preparation for the bloggers night this week where I was lucky enough to meet Maria V Snyder.  Read all about it here

Borrowed - Library

Quite a few books borrowed from the library this week.  Mostly to do with a couple of challenges i am participating in  in Goodreads at the moment.  One is the TBR Challenge where the aim is to try to read as many of the oldest books on your Goodreads TBR list as possible.  There is also the Netgalley Challenge which is the challenge to read and review all the books as many of the books as possible and bring your netgalley ration up as much as possible.  For this challenge, some of these are the previous books prior to the netgalley ARC.  Some of these books are just stuff I would like to read :-)
