Stacking the Shelves March 24rth

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

Obsidian Mirror Trilogy Book 1: Obsidian Mirror by Catherine Fisher-I actually won a Goodreads giveaway! This is the first online giveaway I've actually ever won so I'm kind of pumped. Plus it's Fisher so I know this'll be good. Release Date for ARC: April 23rd.
Thank you Penguin Book Group!

Downloaded to Kindle:
Immortal Empire Book 1: God Save the Queen by Kate Locke-Adult steampunk I've been wanting to read. On sale today for 1.99. God bless Kindle Daily Deals.
The Hangman's Daughter series Book 1 by Oliver Potzsch-Adult mystery/historical fiction Series I've been meaning to check out and I managed to catch it during a daily deal when it was 99 cents (it isn't anymore though).

Bi-Weekly Library Haul:
Dance of Shadows Trilogy Book 1: Dance of Shadows by Yelena Black-2013 debut. I've read mixed reviews about this one and honestly the premise looks rather corny so my expectations are rather low but I'm giving it a shot.
Heist Society Book 3: Perfect Scoundrels by Ally Carter-Have I mentioned I love this series? I haven't? Well, I do and I'm sad it's not more popular. Though word on the street is there's a movie deal so that may change ;crosses fingers and hopes that it actually happens;
Shades of London Book 2: Madness Underneath by Maureen Johnson-I loved In the Name of the Star. It wasn't your typical Maureen book true, but it still had her flair with a paranormal setting so I can't wait to read this. Though personally, I don't care for the new covers they gave it. Plus, why is the UK cover so much cooler than ours?
Shatter Me Book 2: Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi-Somewhat lukewarm about Shatter Me (those crossed out sentences got on my nerves after awhile and turned from clever to gimicky fast) but the way it ended sort of made it so you have to find out what happens so here I am with the second book and hoping it's better than the first.
Dani O'Malley series Book 1 (or Fever book 7): Iced by Karen Marie Moning-Fever spin-off series about Dani. It is everything I wanted in a book about Dani (I've already finished it, review forthcoming).
Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys-Confession: I have never read Between Shades of Grey. I know, I know. It's on the list. It just looks like one of those emotionally exhausting books and I tend to save those books for a time when I'm in the mood like a rainy day or something.
Article 5 Book 2: Breaking Point by Kristen Simmons-One of the many dystopians last year that I think got unfairly overlooked due to it not being what people usually want from their YA dystopians (re: no love triangle).
Pivot Point Book 1: Pivot Point by Kasie West-2013 debut that I've heard good things about and am looking forward too.
