Stacking the Shelves

Thank you to Swoon Reads, Disney Hyerion, MacTeenBooks and Tor Teen for being awesome book faries for this weeks Stacking the Shelves!



No Holding Back (Dodge Cove #2) by Kate Evangelista – Swoon Reads ~ Goodreads I believe this is YA and Swoons first M/M title. I could be wrong about that. The best friends to lovers trope is always fun so I’m looking forward to to reading it.
The Hidden Oracle (The Trials of Apollo #1) by Rick Riordan – Disney Hyperion ~ Goodreads New series by Riordan. I haven’t read anything by him since the original Percy Jackson series but this one sounds fun. 

The Nerdy and the Dirty by B.T. Gottfred – Henry Holt and Co. ~ Goodreads So…this book is about a (self described) nympho and a nerd. And it’s YA. So this could go a lot of different ways. I’m curious to see how the author pulls this off.

Jess, Chunk, and the Road Trip to Infinity by Kristin Elizabeth Clark – Farrar, Straus and Giroux ~ Goodreads Diversity (transgender teen), road trip and family drama – sounds like a mad cap adventure!
Return to the Isle of the Lost by Melissa de la Cruz – Disney Hyperion ~ Goodreads This is based on a Disney tv show about the Disney villains (Maleficent, Jafar, Evil Queen, Cruella de Vil) children. I haven’t read the first book The Isle of the Lost but it sounds like a cute series.
Vassa in the Night by Sarah Porter – Tor Teen ~ Goodreads Inspired by the Russian folktale Vassilissa the Beautiful and set in the enchanted kingdom of Brooklyn..This sounds so interesting!

*What's new on your shelf? Have you or are you anticipating any of my reads?

  1. I've been on a serious budget so I have no new books to add to my shelves... If I COULD... I'd buy SO MANY. All the books that I've read and loved recently, like the Captive Prince series and A Court of Mist and Fury.

    1. I binge read The Captive Prince series. SO GOOD!

      I didn't' buy anything either because I really, really, really need to read what I already have.
