Stacking the Shelves 13/2/2016

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. It is a meme to showcase the books that we have bought, borrowed, received for review, or were given as a gift (basically to show off any book that we acquired). As well, I will tell you a bit about the what has been going on this week and what you can expect from me in the upcoming week!

This Week’s Book Haul

SS 13-2

So after last week’s disappointing book haul *cough* nothing *cough*, I finally have something to share with you again! It’s a small haul, I know that, but pretty awesome if I do say so myself. First of all, Earth’s End by Elise Kova released this week, and I have a kindle copy ready to dig into (sucks I won’t be able to start it this weekend or maybe not even next week). That badass cover is begging me to read it, and I can’t wait what happens after that HORRIBLE cliffhanger in Fire Falling, but I need to get my university reading done first…

Then I couldn’t help myself and bought Fire by Kristin Cashore. I absolutely adore Graceling and I just couldn’t go any longer knowing what happens next, so I got myself a pretty pretty hardcover of this book and can’t wait to dig in (same story though: university reading comes first). I heard that Katsa and Po don’t play a role in this one, but that the story lines of Graceling and Fire come together in the third book, so of course I have to get that one soon as well (as soon as my bank account allows it, that is).

Last Week’s Posts

In honor of upcoming Valentines Day and this week’s freebie Top 10 Tuesday theme, I decided to share my top 10 fictional crushes AND the swoon-worthy quotes that gave me all the feels. I already KNOW one is missing on that list, so I have decided to just share that one with you here. Namely: Morpheus. The following quote is from Ensnared by A.G. Howard, and this quote just tore my heart to pieces, so much feels!

“I don’t want those things from you. I love your faults and imperfections. Your kind heart. The scars that match mine, and the struggles to find ourselves. I want you humanness. Nothing else.”

I also posted my review of Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton, which I would have liked to publish one week earlier, but that didn’t work out as planned. However, better late than never. I gave Rebel of the Sands a whopping, well-deserved, 5 star rating and if you want to know why, do feel free to check out my review *winks*.

What to Expect from Next Week

What to expect, even I don’t really know yet. I am planning on writing a personal post about fitness-addict ways. Don’t know whether people will like it, but I figured I’d share what I’m up to, and my workouts and runs are a big part of that, so stay tuned to find out more. I’m hoping to get some reviews written as well (lets hope I’ll manage to read Earth’s End soon, and a big pile of other books that NEED to be read haha). Then on Wednesday there’s the weekly Top 10 Tuesday post I’ll be posting. I guess the plan is mostly to wing it, there’s no specific plan (I do suck at scheduling posts ahead of time… *sighs*).

    I’ve been wanting to check out Fire for a while. I read Graceling so long ago and I really liked it. Happy reading!

      That’s why I finally caved! I read Graceling a while ago, and I fell in love with Katsa and Po (completely and irrevocably in love with Po, haha), and I just couldn’t not have read it anymore… So I caved and ordered it

    I have Air Awakens, but I haven’t had a chance to read it yet. The cover for Earth’s End is stunning. Have a wonderful week.

      Aww thank you! You should read Elise’s books! They’re the bomb! If you love fantasy books like I do, you’ll probably fall in love with them like I did!

    I liked Graceling, but I never had the chance to read Fire. I’ve heard is better. I hope you love it!
