Stacking the Shelves (4) / In My Mailbox (7)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren
Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews

These are the books I received in the past few weeks. It was snowing when I photographed them, so I thought I'd incorporate my setting into these photos. 

From the Library:

1) Let the Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger - Reading this one NOW!

2) Breaking Point by Kristen Simmons - I was not a fan of Article 5, but requested the sequel from the library anway. I'm still not sure whether I'm going to read it. Ember drove me INSANE. Anyone know if she gets better?

3) Me Before You by JoJo Moyes - I am AFRAID of this book, but I also hear it's sooooo good. Can't wait to read it!

Books I WON!

4 and 5) Cinder and Scarlet by Marissa Meyer - THANK YOU THANK YOU Macmillan! I LOVE both of these books. See my thoughts on Scarlet in the form of a letter to the author, HERE.

6) A Song for Julia by Charles Sheehan-Miles - THANK YOU to the author and Asheley @ Into the Hall of Books. I'm excited to start this one. Find Asheley's review, HERE.

Books I Purchased: 

7) Adorkable by Sarra Manning - I keep hearing how much fun this book is, and I cannot wait to read it. I'm especially excited about all the brit speak. 

8 and 9) Out of the Easy and Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys - I met the author this week - she is pretty fantastic. Look for a write up on the discussion and review of Out of the Easy soon. I am working up the courage to read Between Shades of Gray

Books I Borrowed:

10) Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo - THANK YOU Asheley @ Into the Hall of Books. I finished this one last week and have reviewed it on Goodreads.

 For Review from NetGallery:

11) The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa - I cannot wait to read the sequel to The Immortal Rules

12) In Too Deep by Coert Voorhees - I know nothing about this book, except that it has to do with scuba diving, which is a sport that my whole family enjoys. 

13) Ten Tiny Breaths by K. A. Tucker - Everyone's raving about this New Adult book. Can't wait to read!

  3. I wasn't a fan of Article 5 either, but I definitely won't be picking up the sequel. Ember was WAY too annoying. I'm really curious to see what you think of Let the Sky Fall, though. I love the cover for it! Me Before You and Ten Tiny Breaths are both on my list of books I desperately want to read, so I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts on those. I loved Out of the Easy and Adorkable was fantastic, so I hope you love those! I received S&S in the mail yesterday and am nearly half-way through it. Definitely enjoying it! :) Great haul, Lauren, and happy reading! Also, congrats on winning Scarlet and Cinder! :D
