Stacking the Shelves #5

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.)

Starling by Lesley Livingston (Won from Epic Reads)
Haven't had a chance to read it yet, but I've heard good things about it and can't wait to dive in! (And I've actually had it for about a week now--I really need to find time to read it!)

The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin (Won via SimonTeen on Facebook)
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin (Won via SimonTeen on Facebook)
There might've been some screaming when I found out that I'd won a set of Michelle Hodkin's books and they're shuffling up my TBR pile. Soon. *plots* Soon. 

Fathomless by Jackson Pearce (Received for review from publisher.)
Probably my favorite out of the retellings thus far! I need to write up my review still, but I really did enjoy it.

Adaptation by Malinda Lo (Received for review from publisher.)
If you've been thinking about picking up Adaptation when it comes out, I can tell you right now that it's probably a very good idea. Yes, I really, really enjoyed Adaptation and just- I'd recommend it to you. Really, I would. I mean, unless you don't like science fiction--but Adaptation's level of science fiction is really easy to understand. Yes, I also need to write up my review for Adaptation--and I hope to post that sucker soon.

The Kingmaker's Daughter by Philippa Gregory (Received for review via publisher--unsolicited.)
Yes, that is a UK copy. It appeared out of the blue from Simon & Schuster UK and not only is the hardcover gorgeous, but I've been hankering for some historical fiction!


  1. Lots of good books! I've heard a lot about Mara Dyer, but haven't had the chance to read it yet.

  2. I still haven't read The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer! I really want to though! I hope you enjoy everything you got this week!

    My IMM =)

  3. OMG it is awesome that you won the Mara Dyer books! I am dying for the sequel. Starling and Fathomless are also books I can't wait to read. Enjoy! :)

  4. WOW,I'm really jealous right now! Hope you enjoy!

  9. You ares so lucky that you got The Evolution of Mara Dyer! I have been dying to read that book!

  10. Philippa Gregory is an amazing writer. And I seriously can't wait to get a copy from Fathomless <3 Happy reading!

  11. I've got both Mara Dyers in my pile as well and I am hoping to get to them by the end of this month. A few weeks ago I read The Kingmaker's Daughter and it was awesome! The cover for the UK version is so much prettier than the US version, in my opinion. Great haul.
