Stacking The Shelves #001

Welcome to my first edition of Stacking The Shelves. Stacking The Shelves 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 stores or online bookshops, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks. Hosted by Tyngas Reviews.

This week I received an assortment of ARC and review copies, thanks to Bloomsbury, Allen & Unwin and Simon &  Schuster Australia. Have edited my post using the retail cover images, as original photos were too high quality and slow to load.

Jump by Sean Williams, book one in the Twinmaker series and The Last Girl by Michael Adams. Thank you to Allen & Unwin.
Amped by Daniel H. Wilson and Red Hill by Jamie McGuire. Thank you to Simon & Schuster.
After Eden by Helen Douglas. Thank you to Bloomsbury Australia.

And picked up a few bargains this week myself as well, and one disappointing one. You can probably guess which one that is.

Allegiant by Veronica Roth
Angels On Sunset Boulevard  by Melissa De La Cruz
Boy Toy by Barry Lyga
Head Games By Mariah Fredericks
Secret Ones by Nicole Murphy
Everwild, book two in the Skinjacker series by Neal Shusterman
and, The Last Vampire, which contains book one and two by Christopher Pike

Look forward to see what you're all stacking your shelves with this week.


  1. Ooh you've got a great haul :-) Welcome to Stacking The Shelves. It's a great meme. I hope you enjoy all of your books this week!

    1. Thanks Chrissi, I'm looking forward to participating every fortnight at least, I may not have much to report on weekly.

      I stopped by your blog earlier, but sadly it won't allow me to comment without having a Wordpress account.

  2. Great haul, I guess you were disappointed by Allegiant... I actually enjoyed it, but I can see why lots of readers were not happy with it.

    Here's my StS post

    1. Hey Lexxie and thanks for popping by.
      It wasn't how the series that wrapped up, as most readers seem to feel was unjust, mine gripe was more with the overall style of the novel. It didn't feel like the first two for me and I felt bored in comparison. So glad you enjoyed it though, I hope others do as well.

  3. Nice stack Kelly, you're getting some great new reads! Amped looks interesting, you'll have to let me know how that one is. LOL too bad you got the disappointing one ;)

    1. Hey Jeann, thanks for popping it. I am, with thanks to yourself who explained the potential of review copies. Yeah, Amped sounded awesome, a science fiction cyberpunk mix. I'll be reading it next month, as part of world ending month (apocalyptic, survivalist and dystopian month)

  4. Thanks Shane and thanks for dropping by. I'm looking forward to beginning Jump (known in the U.S as Twinmaker) this week.
