Stacking the Shelves: September 9th

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

Bought at Barnes and Noble:
The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith (aka JK Rowling)-Yes, I caved and bought the Rowling book. For the record I totally understand why she wrote under a different name and I think she basically proved that there is reader prejudice towards certain authors like herself. Instead of getting angry at her, maybe readers should take a long look at themselves and ask why they never would have read this book if it had been printed under her name even though they enjoyed it just fine when they didn't know it was written by JK Rowling.

Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel Book 6: The Enchantress by Michael Scott-Final book! ;sniffs;

Bi-weekly library haul:
Women of the Otherworld series Book 11: Waking the Witch by Kelley Armstrong-I admit it: I skipped books 9 and 10. From what I understand they're basically just one-shots that don't really add anything huge to the story and I was anxious to get to Savannah. Maybe after I finish these, I'll read 9 and 10...

Mercy Thompson series Book 7: Frost Burned by Patricia Briggs-Did I say I was quitting the Mercy series? Yeah, I lied.

Crank series Book 1: Crank by Ellen Hopkins-Finally given Hopkins a shot. I'm not a huge verse/poetry person so I've been avoiding these books since I know it's written in that style. But I thought I'd take the plunge. We'll see how it goes...;eyes book warily;

Of Beast and Beauty by Stacey Jay-Giving this one a shot, even though Jay is on and off for me as a writer.

Vampire Queen series Book 2: Stolen Nights by Rebecca Maizel-Library FINALLY had this.

Lying Games series Book 4: Hide and Seek by Sara Shepard-Trying to get caught up on the series which I like way better then the PLL books.

Still Star-Crossed by Melinda Taub-Book that apparently goes into what happens AFTER Romeo and Juliet die. Bring it.

  1. Of Beast and Beauty is so good! And I'm really curious as to how The Cuckoo's Calling turns out! I hope you enjoy all you got :)
