Stacking the Shelves #4

Stacking The Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga of Tynga's Reviews and here's a post summarizing what it's about. (Or if you'd prefer, I'll just summarize and say that it allows everyone to show what they've gotten in the past week in terms of books--whether they're physical copies, e-books, books borrowed, etc.)

I know it's been a while since I've done one of these, but to be fair, I've been trying to keep myself from adding to my TBR pile until it shrinks a bit.


For Review:
I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore
The Power of Six by Pittacus Lore
The Rise of Nine by Pittacus Lore
Drain You by M. Beth Bloom
Destiny by Gillian Shields
Sweet Shadows by Tera Lynn Childs

A huge thank you to HarperTeen this week! All six of those were actually surprises in the mail--two different packages, one came last week and one came this week. Definitely looking forward to digging into I Am Number Four--I've been thinking about reading it for a while now, but this is definitely the kick that I needed to read the series!

Bought:
The Forsaken by Lisa M. Stasse

So, my copy of The Forsaken is actually signed to me! :D The crazy story behind that is: Lisa made an appearance at the book group that I attend (yes, this was today) because we were reading The Forsaken for this month and we got to chat with her for a while too! Unfortunately I had to take off right afterwards, but there was also a writing workshop with Jennifer Bosworth and Leigh Bardugo afterwards! These are but two of the reasons why Mysterious Galaxy (in this case, I'm talking about the Redondo Beach location) is so freaking awesome, by the way. <3

  4. oh, it is so awesome about the story of The Forsaken! Hooray for signed copies! :D

    also, I really need to read The Power of Six and Rise of Nine (when it comes out.) I really liked I AM NUMBER FOUR, but haven't yet gotten to the sequels. Great stories they are!

    enjoy all your new books, Kristin! can't wait to see your reviews of them.

  7. That's a great haul :). I've read I'm number four a year ago and really liked it (the movie is really bad though -___-). I bought the second book but I still haven't read it so I really need to read it and then buy the third book.
    Happy reading !

    And if you are interested I'm doing an international giveaway on my blog to celebrate my 2 year blogoversary :).
