Exciting Additions To My Shelves | April 23

Exciting AdditionsToMy Shelves

This week the publishers and Edelweiss were pretty good to me.  I found some books I hadn’t really heard about and I also got one of my most anticipated books of the year!

The Raven King (The Raven Cycle #4) by Maggie Stiefvater

The Raven King

If you know me well, you know I’ve already started this one.  There was no way I was waiting to finish the two others books I was reading when I got it.  This is the final book in The Raven Cycle series and I’m extremely nervous to see how it all ends.

Crow Mountain by Lucy Inglis

Crow Mountain

This was a surprise book that showed up from Scholastic but I’m intrigued by it.  It’s two love stories that are separated by over a hundred years but somehow intertwined.

Frost by M.P. Kozlowsky

Frost

The first line in the synopsis for this one is that it’s Cinder meets The Walking Dead.  I am all over that.  I’m not even kidding when I say that I don’t need to know anything else about Frost to know that I will be reading it.

The Forgetting by Sharon Cameron

The Forgetting

I read Sharon Cameron’s debut novel and while I haven’t kept up with her other books, I loved it enough to check out more of her work.  The Forgetting sounds absolutely fascinating and unique and I haven’t read a good dystopian lately so I have high hopes.

The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid

The Diabolic

Science fiction isn’t usually my thing but everything about this book appeals to me.  A humanoid girl poses as the senator’s daughter when she is threatened and is taken hostage by the power-mad Emperor. I’m not sure what all will happen after that but I’m going to find out!

The Only Thing Worse Than Me Is You by Lily Anderson

The only thing worse than me is you

I’ve been seeing this one around and it’s been getting amazing reviews.  It’s contemporary and it’s about two giant comic book nerds.  That’s definitely enough to catch my attention.

Are any of these on your TBR?  Which one are you most excited for?

Exciting Additions To My Shelves | March 19

Exciting AdditionsToMy Shelves

I haven’t been doing Stacking the Shelves posts anymore (I can’t keep up with all the books) but I do still want to share some of the books that have been added to my shelves lately.  This is my way of picking a few and letting you guys know what you should be on the lookout for!

Raw Blue by Kirsy Eagar

Raw Bluw

I’ve had this book on my wishlist for years but since it’s only published in Australia, it’s been a bit out of my price range.  Willa from Willa’s Ramblings was so kind as to send me her copy that she no longer needed.  I’ve heard it’s extremely emotional and amazingly written so I’m eager to check it out.

Julia Vanishes by Catherine Egan

Julia Vanishes

This book holds some serious promise.  It’s got magic.  It’s about a girl who can appear invisible (kind of).  And the girl just happens to be a thief and a spy.  How awesome does that sound?

Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Cordova

Labyrinth Lost

Look at that cover!  It’s absolutely stunning.  I’m really hoping it hints at what’s between the pages.  This one has been described as a mix of Beautiful Creatures and Daughter of Smoke and Bone so I’m sold.

This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

This Savage Song

A new book from Victoria Schwab?  Who wouldn’t be excited if this showed up on their doorstep?  I’ve already been hearing fabulous things about it so I hope to make time for it very soon.  The setting is compared to Gotham and it’s full of monsters.  Sounds pretty exciting to me.

What The Dead Want by Norah Olson

What The Dead Want

The cover and title definitely intrigue me with this one.  It’s about a girl whose mom goes missing and years later her daughter discovers that it might have something to do with a crumbling Civil War era mansion that she has inherited.  It’s full of secrets about violence and racism and seems like it could be really creepy.

Are any of these on your TBR?  Which one are you most excited for?
