Stacking the Shelves #40

Afternoon readers, have you all had a good day so far? I’ve actually had a GREAT day. Today is Free Comic Book Day, and so I went to my local comic store, Gifts For The Geek and bought a bit of a haul! I will share that in image form as I’m aware that not a lot of you are comic readers like myself! But I do have some great YA reads to show off this week also.

Stacking the Shelves is bought to you by Tynga from Tynga’s Reviews. Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!


The Elite (The Selection #2) - Keira Cass

One of the most amazing covers (The Selection was also incredibly gorgeous). I am looking forward to finding out what happens to America in this one.

Thirty-five girls came to the palace to compete in the Selection. All but six have been sent home. And only one will get to marry Prince Maxon and be crowned princess of Illea.

America still isn’t sure where her heart lies. When she’s with Maxon, she’s swept up in their new and breathless romance, and can’t dream of being with anyone else. But whenever she sees Aspen standing guard around the palace, and is overcome with memories of the life they planned to share. With the group narrowed down to the Elite, the other girls are even more determined to win Maxon over—and time is running out for America to decide.

Just when America is sure she’s made her choice, a devastating loss makes her question everything again. And while she’s struggling to imagine her future, the violent rebels that are determined to overthrow the monarchy are growing stronger and their plans could destroy her chance at any kind of happy ending.


Fire With Fire (Burn for Burn #2) - Jenny Han & Siobhan Vivian

Thank you so much to Simon & Schuster for approving me for this ARC copy of Fire With Fire! I have been dying to know what was going to happen since I finished Burn for Burn. This is not out until September 3rd so keep your eyes peeled for a review closer to that date!

Lillia, Kat, and Mary had the perfect plan. Work together in secret to take down the people who wronged them. But things didn’t exactly go the way they’d hoped at the Homecoming Dance.

Not even close.

For now, it looks like they got away with it. All they have to do is move on and pick up the pieces, forget there ever was a pact. But it’s not easy, not when Reeve is still a total jerk and Rennie’s meaner than she ever was before.

And then there’s sweet little Mary…she knows there’s something seriously wrong with her. If she can’t control her anger, she’s sure that someone will get hurt even worse than Reeve was. Mary understands now that it’s not just that Reeve bullied her—it’s that he made her love him.

Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth, burn for a burn. A broken heart for a broken heart. The girls are up to the task. They’ll make Reeve fall in love with Lillia and then they will crush him. It’s the only way he’ll learn.

It seems once a fire is lit, the only thing you can do is let it burn…


And quickly, a pic of my comic haul…

  • I got The Elite this week as well! It was quite well written, but I found America really frustrating :/ Can’t wait until The One comes out!

    I wish I’d liked The Selection more than I did, but I never actually finished it. However, the covers are truly beautiful and I’d have the books around just to look at, ha. Enjoy your books!

  • Burn For Burn sounds good so I hope you enjoy the sequel. I wasn’t a big fan of The Selection but I though The Elite was better. Happy reading!
    My Stack

  • I love the comic haul, enjoy!

  • I really need to read Burn For Burn. Will get to it eventually. I have The Selection on my TBR pile but the negative reviews have kept me from reading it. So little time and never wanting to waste it on books that I might not like.

    Yay, on free comics! It is such a wonderful way to encourage people to read.

    Lucky you! We had a free comic book day here today as well, but it totally slipped my mind so I didn’t get any. :(

    Anyway, happy reading!
