Reader Ramblings…This week in books

STSmall_thumb[2]_thumb

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews to share what we’ve added to the shelves this week.

I was a bad, bad girl when it came to buying e-books this week. BAD! On the plus side, I already read most of them – on the down side – I had SO many other books I needed to read first.

Bought:

185176941136639715795357

Bitter Pill by Stacey Kade – Goodreads: Read this one. Cute small town, cozy mystery but I wasn’t sold on the romanctic interest. I’m sure it’s going to play out several books though so there’s time to convince me.

The Program by Suzanne YoungGoodreads: I’ve been dying to read this one and there was a great deal!

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell –Goodreads: Another e-book deal that I couldn’t pass up!

178252181744813716172638


Beauty and the Billionaire by Jessica ClareGoodreads: Read. Disfigured billionaire virgin. Hawt! I grew a little tired of the misunderstandings and lies but overall a fun read

Fighting for You by Sydney LandonGoodreads Read. Bad boy meets virgin. A little too cliché and odd for me. The friends are overly intrusive in each others lives and it was just plain weird lol The couple was cute though. Just not my thing.

Finding It by Cora CarmackGoodreads Just finished this one! Loved it!

There’s more but let’s just pretend I only bought six. lol

Review:

161012341604529618627383

The Chocolate Heart by Laura FlorandGoodreads Read. LOVE this series and this book. Review coming soon.

Racing Savannah by Miranda KenneallyGoodreads Eep! So excited to be approved for this one!

In the Clear by Tamara Morgan - Goodreads Cute friends to lovers with a really sweet guy.

~ I also read Vicious by V.E. Schwab - Goodreads this week (source – arc from publisher at BEA) I’ll be writing a review soon but I adored this one!

~ I’m continuing my Razorland Trilogy re-read and I’m on Enclave now. I hope everyone who has had a chance to read Horde is pleased with the way the series ended. After so many disappointing conclusions, I was really happy with this one. Restored my reader faith in series.

  7. I am listening to Outpost right now! Several of you gave me hope about Horde and that I won't have the same reaction to it that I did with a few others :) :) :)

  10. I have a copy of Vicious on the way from Tor and I'm so excited about it arriving. I just know I'll like it, it sounds exactly like my kind of book.
    I've never seen this particular book by Stacey Kade, but I do love her writing so I'll definitely look into it. And I've heard great things about The Program, I actually own the audio but haven't had a chance to listen to it yet.

    1. Stacey's book was really different from her YA. It was cute but the romance was not what I was hoping for.

  11. Fantastic haul! Eleanor & Park was (and continues to be) one of my absolute favorite reads.

    Enjoy all your new pretties and thanks for stopping by and checking out The Book Hookup's haul.

    1. I didn't hate it or anything - I just couldn't' really relate to the friends. Maybe because I'm a hermit and would run away if my friends got in my business like that lol

  17. Wow, you read a lot of indies...that's great. I read the first Enclave book, but have to finish the series. I'm very guilty of only reading the first in the series.
