Stacking the Shelves (38/Emily Edition Part 2)

Hello everyone! Once again, Emily is back and ashamed of the amount of books she got since the last time she did a Stacking the Shelves post. (Yes I will refer to myself in the third person. Everything gets better when you do so) Let's just keep in mind that there has been about a month between today and the last time I posted....a time period in which a lot of amazing books have been released! I can't help it. What was I supposed to do? Just leave the poor things on the shelf in the store? OH NO! I put them on MY shelf. So there.






Bought:
Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas- I was a little late getting on the Sarah Maas fangirl train, but now that I'm on it...there's no stopping it! I loved the first book and I'm dying to know what's next for our little assassin.

The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon- I'm actually reading this book right now, and while it is complicated and confusing as hell, I'm actually enjoying myself and dare I say I'm impressed? Time will tell!

All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill-I have already read and loved this book. I've read lots of time travel books, but this one is very different and strange and I just adored everything about it. Everybody should read it! RIGHT NOW!!...or when you have a moment.

The Program by Suzanne Young- Another book I've read and loved. This book has such an original, yet creepy plot, it will get you hooked almost immediately. And there is a surprise under the dust jacket! Find this book and take a look!

Spirit and Dust by Rosemary Clement-Moore-I'm a huge fan of hers! She writes good ghost stories, and this one is definitely not an exception.

The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa- GAH!!!!! This book will tear you to pieces, put you back together again and then just rip you to shreds again. And there is still not a release date for the third book in the series yet! YOU CAN'T PLAY AROUND WITH MY HEART LIKE THIS JULIE KAGAWA!!

The Bitter Kingdom by Rae Carson- I guess if you guys want to know anything about this book and how I felt about it, you can check out my review here.

Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo- I have heard so many fantastic reviews in regards to this book. People rave about how it is even better than the first...which I can't even possibly imagine since the first book was so darn good!

Deception by C.J. Redwine- This was another first book in a series that really impressed me and then made me wait for forever just to know what happens next. And now I finally have the sequel! *Insert squeals of happiness here*

The 100 by Kass Morgan- I'm sure you guys have already heard, but this book is going to be a TV show on the CW. I've seen the trailer, and it looks pretty good, so I'm going to give this book a chance!

Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke- That was by far the longest title and author combination I have ever seen. It's like she did that on purpose!

The Chaos of Stars by Kiersten White- Another book by this hilarious author? Yes please! I've heard some iffy reviews on this book, but I still want to give it a try. I have faith in Kiersten White

Antigoddess by Kendare Blake-An awesome, original idea, creepy cover, and mythology of some sort. I'm all ears, man....or eyes? I don't even know.

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell- I don't know anybody on Goodreads who isn't talking about this book. And the main character sounds like someone I can totally relate to. I had to work really hard not to pick up this book right away.

Scorced by Mari Mancusi- Ever since the conclusion of the Eragon series, I've been looking for another good dragon series, I've been looking for another author to focus on and perfect a story about these magnificent creatures. I haven't heard much about this book yet, but what I have heard has been pretty positive, so I'm hoping for the best!

So that's all for me this week...or month and believe me, it's plenty! Thanks for stopping by!

What did you get this week? I'd love to check out your Stacking The Shelves!
over the world. As if my book obsession wasn't life consuming enough,
Oh hello there! My name is Emily, though some of you may know me as the Bookie Monster. As the name would suggest, I devour books like the Cookie Monster devours cookies. In my spare time, I like to bake cookies (and devour those as well) and dream about taking over the world. As if my book obsession wasn't life consuming enough,

I work in the children's room at my local library and I am currently a sophomore in college majoring in English. It's safe to say I'm a bit of a book fanatic. I discreetly shed a few tears on my eleventh birthday when I did not receive my Hogwarts acceptance letter and I waited seven hours outside in the rain just to get a good seat at the Hunger Games midnight premiere. I'm terrified of blood and Disney movies make me cry (in a good way). My passions include hippos, hugs, and Hans Zimmer…and uh,long walks on the beach. I'm just a normal girl w
ith a slightly abnormal and frightfully expensive obsession. Nice to meet you!

  2. OMG YOU GOT SO MANY COOL BOOKS! I also got The Bone Season and All Our Yesterdays and I can't wait to start them. Crown of Midnight was what I have explained to everyone as a 'emotional or feels overload'. It was even better the TOG and you should read it asap. I loved Eleanor and Park and now I need Fangirl, I've heard such great things! Great Haul, Happy Reading :)

  5. Wow, what a fantastic haul! I loved so many of these books...The Bone Season, Crown of Midnight, All Our Yesterdays, The Program, The Eternity Cure, Fangirl, The 100, The Bitter Kingdom. And I loved Defiance so I really need to read Deception, but I think I'm going to have to re-read it because I can barely remember it now! Have fun reading! ~Pam

  7. O____O Okay, I am jelly about your copy of Fangirl and Between The Devil and The Deep Blue Sea! I want those two so badly.

  8. Gah, you have so many awesome books that just came out! I'm thinking I may have to get The Bone Season. So glad you're enjoying it so far! I actually was able to see the pilot of The 100 and I really, really liked it, but I'm a bit nervous. I think the show leans more towards something you'd see on SyFy, not the CW. But I do hope the second and third episodes are strong.

  9. Crown of Midnight was amazing and so was The Program. I also got The Bone Season some time back, but I still haven't started reading it because it's such a big book.
    The 100 is another one I'm quite intrigued by, but I'm waiting for it to become available at my library.
    I hope you enjoy your lovely books! :)
    Happy reading!
