Today I’m linking up with these two memes — Stacking the Shelves & Top Ten Tuesday — for today’s post. And, well, yes… I am aware it’s NOT Tuesday. Buuuuut I saw this week’s Top Ten Tuesday theme, and just couldn’t resist. And so I behold to you: my most recently acquired books. (Do you have any idea JUST how PAINFUL it was to only choose ten??)
1. A Darker Shade of Magic by Victoria Schwab.
FINALLY, FINALLY, FINALLY. I also may or may not have squealed when I saw this sitting on the New Books shelf.
2. Ignite by Sara B. Larson.
I enjoyed the first one, and so I’m quite curious to see how this series will develop.
3. The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon.
Currently reading the first one and LOVING it, so how could I resist this one!?
4. Shadow Scale by Rachel Hartman.
Ooookay, so I’ve had the first one sitting on my shelf for AGES — and I thought, “Well. It’s a dragon book. So I better get the second one ASAP.” (I think this sums up my dragon feels accurately.)
5. Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge.
EEEEEEEP. Isn’t it PRETTY? Just LOOK at the inside!!
6. Uprooted by Naomi Novik.
Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous hardcover. Plus, I’ve heard GREAT things about this one.
7. The Girl At Midnight by Melissa Grey.
REALLY looking forward to this one.
8. Throne of Glass/The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas.
So obviously, I had to buy the hardcover editions to match the rest of my series, right??
9. The Diamond Throne by David Eddings.
So I picked this up for $1.50. $1.50, people! How can a mere mortal like myself resist THAT? Besides, this looks pretty dang badass, so, you know, there’s that too.
10. World After by Susan Ee.
It’s literally been YEARS since I read Angelfall, and I’m eager to see what I’ll think of this sequel.
