Stacking The Shelves (16)

Stacking The Shelves hosted by Tynga's Reviews.  It is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

EARCS I GOT THIS WEEK:




BOOKS I GOT THIS WEEK: 



 Bookstore is one of those rare E-Arcs where the synopsis just sounds so good that I ignore the fact that it is an adult book and go ahead and request anyway.  I am hoping it goes better than the last couple of adult books I took a chance on.

The final three books this week were all purchased.  The Darkest Minds is a book that I read and LOVED as an ARC, then bought a copy for my classroom and now (as my classroom copy is seeing some of the wear and tear that comes with being my #1 most checked out book) I am purchasing a second copy for my personal library. 

Jekel Loves Hyde was a Chapters Bargain Book that I picked up for $5.  I read one of Fantasky's other books and it wasn't bad.  I think this one will appeal to the girly girls in my classes. 

My most anticipated purchase is Dark Triumph.  I enjoyed Grave Mercy but lost my connection with the main character as the book went on.  Dark Triumph, however, follows Sybella, a very mysterious character from the first book and I am really excited to learn more about her.  I think this will have to get bumped to the top of the TBR pile as I already have a student anxiously awaiting her chance to read it as soon as I am finished.

Eep, I am so excited to read Dark Triumph! I really loved Grave Mercy, and Sybella sounds like such a fantastic and mysterious main character. I can't wait to delve into her secrets. Also, I got The Darkest Minds as well this week! It sounds so fantastic, and I'm dying to start it.

Lovely haul! <3

I keep hearing that Dark Triumph is even better than Grave Mercy! I hope so, because it sounds great but Grave Mercy was only okay for me. Enjoy your new books! :)

I liked The Darkest Minds too. I also got Dark Triumph and hope it doesn't sit on my stack as long as Grave Mercy did before I find time to read it. Come see what I got at Inside of a Dog and Ms. Martin Teaches Media. Happy reading!
