Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature hosted by Tynga’s Reviews where bloggers share the books that they’ve added to their shelves this week, whether borrowed, bought, virtual, physical, etc!
I was beyond excited when I casually strolled into my library and saw this sitting on the “new to the library” shelf, untouched. I literally gasped and practically ran for it, hugging it to my chest and only relinquishing it when I had to hand it to the librarian to check out. I have heard so many amazing things about both this novel and about Non Pratt (and the way the topic of sex and intimacy is navigated throughout the YA story) and I’m shocked my little library had it! The book gods were apparently beaming down on me this weekend.
I also picked up #scandal by Sarah Ockler, which I don’t know too much about, other than some buzz surrounding the way it portrays online gossip and bullying. I haven’t read anything by Ockler either, so I’m excited to discover some new authors this month. Although I went to the library solely to return two books, and now I have more checked out than I begin with (this always seems to happen, doesn’t it?)
I actually pre-ordered this from Amazon a while ago and I started it practically the moment it landed in my mailbox. I’m a huge fan of The Lux series and the fact that this is the final installment is bittersweet…although I’m not happy about the cover style change from the first four books and the fact that they’ve bundled the earlier four books into two installments. I’m trying to ignore the fact that this won’t match the rest of the series on my bookshelf!
What about you? Link me back to your STS this week!
