Stacking the Shelves (6/16/12)

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by the lovely Tynga!

Hello, everyone! :) I didn't get a huge book haul this week, but I got three awesome books nonetheless!

Bought on the Kindle:
Legend by Marie Lu
For Review:
The Assassin's Curse by Cassandra Rose Clarke (Thank you, Netgalley and Angry Robot!)
Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan (Thank you, Netgalley and Random House!)

I got Legend for dear ol' father since he does have a thing for dystopian/sci-fi books, and he just devoured it in a day!

Conversation between Dad and I:
Dad: I finished it.
Me: Finished what?
Dad: Legend by Marie Lu.
Dad: Yeah. I really liked it. *does a small smile*

Now, I'm super excited to read it! It looks so good and everyone is saying that it's made of awesome sauce. *-*

I did a back flip in the air (in my head of course) because I was so excited to see that I got approved for The Assassin's Curse! It supposedly has assassins, adventure, romance, ROMANCE WITH SAID ASSASSIN, gaaahhh~ I've been WANTING a deadly assassin and kick butt heroine love for forever! <3

When I saw I got approved for Unspoken, I did a "E" to the freakin "EEEEP"! Can you believe how awesome this book sounds?! Unfortunately, it's pulling a Glitch with me right now.

Don't get it? Glitch by Heather Anastasiu used to not have a Kindle reading option. Then, BAM. Kindle option shows up few weeks later! So here's to hoping there will be a Kindle reading option in the future. x-x

What I finished last week:

I finished Nevermore and Across the Universe. Oh my goodness gracious, for the LOVE of all things sweet and cuddly, you all MUST MUST MUST read Nevermore if you haven't already. It's absolutely just a gorgeous, engrossing read that will not let you go. It's definitely one of my favorites for 2012!

ALSO, do NOT let Nevermore's cover fool you. It may be creepy (well, it is to me) but I had a picture of Ezra Miller (Ezra Miller is on the left) on my phone which perfectly depicts Varen Nethers in all of his amazing glory. Needless to say, I was looking at it the entire time while I was reading Nevermore so I can get that creepy guy out of my head. x-x

Across the Universe was also such an awesome sci-fi read, and I cannot wait for the sequel! Although I'm not raving about it as much as I am with Nevermore, it was still REALLY good.

Be on the lookout for my reviews to come up next week!
I know Nevermore will be up on Monday. :D

I've heard the assassin's curse is supposed to be really good! And unspoken looks intruiging. Happy readings!

Gianna said...

YAY for the approvals! I still really need to read Legend & Nevermore! Now that I see you loved Nevermore, I HAVE TO. I trust your judgement. :) Great haul this week, Gianna! Check out miiiine. XD 


Gianna said...

Wow, they all look great, Gianna! I also have yet to read Legend, but I know it's a total must. It's even been published here. Hahahaha and it's great that your dad liked it, too :) I'll be waiting for your review~ I've seen Unspoken around a bit but I'm still undecided whether I should read it. And The Assassin's Curse looks SO GOOD. I'm tempted to go over to Netgalley and request it ASAP! lol

Have a great week~ <3

Gianna said...

UGH. I'm facepalming every second you DON'T read Nevermore, Jen. </3 SO DO IT NOW!

Not getting a huge haul can be a good thing. I need to catch up with my pile!

This week I had two book haul posts, one for my BEA books and one for my regularly scheduled post.
