Stacking the Shelves (March 1)


Stacking the Shelves
- Hosted by: Tynga’s Reviews





Description: 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 store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!
                  
So my first Kindle grab this week is one I am especially excited about - Red at Night by Katie McGarry. I don't actual have this one yet, but I did pre-order it on Kindle for - wait for it - FREE! That's right, Amazon Kindle has the option to grab the new Katie McGarry book for free as a pre-order for April 1st. So if you are a fan of Katie McGarry like I am, or a fan of Contemporary Teen Romance - you should hurry over to Amazon and take advantage of this deal while it lasts!


   


My other Kindle grabs this week were all authors I have read and enjoyed before. I grabbed a title by Sarah Dessen, Janette Rallison, and Susane Colasanti - three amazing (primarily) Contemporary YA authors. I was lucky enough to grab Ms. Rallison's book Blue Eyes and Other Teenage Hazards for only $2.99 on Amazon. Both Sarah Dessen and Susane Colasanti are YA Contemporary authors who do a great job writing about romance and family dynamics, while often tackling other relevant teen issues. I love the cover for each of these and I'm very excited to try them out!

Bookstore Buys:


    

I feel like I got a nice mix in my bookstore picks this week from three new to me authors. Poison had an amazing cover…yes I was totally taken in by the cover of this one. The plot is what really sold me though potions-master, fugitive girl, a kingdom on the brink of destruction and an adorable pig? Sold! I haven't heard or seen anything about this one yet, so I'm very excited to jump into this fantasy.

My next pick was another new to me book/author, The Perfect Match. This one is an adult Contemporary Romance. I've seen this author featured on a few different blogs, and I thought I'd give her a try. I love a good romance book, I'm hopeful that she'll become a new fave author for me.

Finally, I have another Contemporary YA author who I have not read anything by before. I keep seeing her books on other blogs, and the story sounded very fun, sweet, and light - definitely something I would enjoy. I'm hoping I've found myself a new YA author to add to my auto-buy list, but I guess we'll see.


What were your finds this week?

  12. Jennifer E Smith is one of my favourite authors now, I read The Statistical Probability when it came out, which I loved and really enjoyed This is What Happy Looks Like, and really enjoyed that one, too. So she's an auto-buy for me. :) Hope you enjoy it!
