Stacking the Shelves: August 19th, 2012

I know I've been really bad about this meme (and others) lately. I'm trying to get back into the swing of things. Work and Real life have just interfered with blogging. Plus I only go to the library every other week and due to budget issues I'm not buying as many books as usual so some weeks I don't get any books.

Anyway, this is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga at Tynga's Reviews that tells people what new books we've gotten over the week.

Just the usual library haul this week:

Losers in Space by John Barnes. 2012 debut that I've literally heard nothing about. Hence my curiousity.

The Maze Runner Trilogy Book 3: The Death Cure by James Dashner-Mostly just reading to finish off the trilogy even though I honestly think it's gone down hill since the first book. I likely will not be bothering with the prequel which is out now.

Glimmer by Phoebe Kitanidis. Another 2012 debut that I've heard very little about even though the summary makes it sound very interesting.

Monument 14 by Emmy Laybourne. 2012 debut that is part of the awesome looking Fierce Reads tour. I read Struck and enjoyed that so I'm reading the others. This one sounds right up my ally.

Hourglass series Book 2: Timepiece by Myra McEntire. I wasn't as crazy about Hourglass as everyone else was. I don't know, it didn't overwhelm me. I got a kick out of it for sure. But I never got to the gushing point. I'm giving the series another shot though. Maybe the second book will make me a fan.

Revenants series Book 2: Until I Die by Amy Plum. While I wasn't in love with Die for Me, the plot and premise was interesting enough that I'm giving the author another shot. I just hope she takes it up a notch in the second.

Ripper Book 1: Ripper by Amy Carol Reeves. 2012 Historical debut. Presumingly about Jack the Ripper somehow.

Shade Trilogy Book 3: Shine by Jeri Smith-Ready. The conclusion to the fabulous Shade trilogy. Can't wait. I really wish this had gotten more buzz then it did. Oh well.


  1. I wasn't a big fan of Monument 14 or Die for Me so I haven't read Until I Die. Ripper was good though and I need to read The Death Cure Soom, it's on my TBR sheld. I really want Glimmer and need to read the Shade series!

    Enjoy :)

  2. Awesome haul! I loved Shine & Monument 14! I still need to read Timepiece & Until I Die but I have them both so hopefully I'll get to them soon! Enjoy all your books!
