Stacking the Shelves: September 2nd

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

Downloaded to Kindle:

Penryn and the End of Days series Book 1: Angelfall by Susan Ee-Was cheap and it's a new release. Maybe by some miracle it'll be a angel book I actually like.

Library Haul:

Dark Companion by Marta Acosta-2012 debut from this year that looks fun.

Of Poseidon Book 1 by Anna Banks-2012 debut. I'm wary of this because it's a mermaid book and mermaid books and I have a troubled history. But I've heard really good things so I'm giving it a shot.

The Magnolia League series Book 2: The White Glove War by Katie Crouch-Magnolia League was a cheesy but fun read for me last year so I'm continueing the series.

Order of Darkness Book 1: The Changeling by Philippa Gregory-I honestly have never read any of Gregory's adult books because of lack of interest and too many mixed reviews of her work. This one sounds interesting though so I'm giving her a shot.

Deadly Cool Book 2: Social Suicide by Gemma Halliday-Second book in a mystery series started last year that I enjoyed even though I'm not a particular fan of the author's adult books.

Unraveling Book 1 by Elizabeth Norris-2012 debut that so far is not half bad.

Hemlock Book 1 by Kathleen Peacock-2012 debut I hope is good.

Divergent series Book 2: Insurgent by Veronica Roth-Finally off of reserve from the library. Only took three months and three tries getting it.

The American Fairy Trilogy Book 1: Dust Girl by Sarah Zettel-another 2012 debut that sounds really awesome and that I hope is good.


  1. Nice haul from the library! It may take awhile sometimes to get hold of the popular books, but it's well worth the wait! Happy reading!

  2. Yeah, I never know how I'm going to feel after a mermaid book (some are great, but others...not so much). Happy reading :)

  3. I loved Of Poseidon! Hope you'll enjoy it as much as I have. It has some things that some people wouldn't like but look past them and just enjoy the characters and their interactions. :)

    Loved Insurgent too. It got crazy but still full of adventure. :)
