Stacking the Shelves #41

Evening readers! So sorry I’ve been quiet on the blogging front, trust me, I feel like a bad blogger right now! But I’m on annual leave starting tomorrow so I am hoping having more free hours in my day will enable me to commit a bit better to updating.

Once We Were (The Hybrid Chronicles #2) - Kat Zhang

Thanks so much to Harper Collins for this ARC copy! Once we were is the sequel to What’s Left Of Me, which I really enjoyed. This book is scheduled for release around September 17th, and I am looking forward to finding out what happens in this one!

Eva was never supposed to have survived this long. As the recessive soul, she should have faded away years ago. Instead, she lingers in the body she shares with her sister soul, Addie. When the government discovered the truth, they tried to “cure” the girls, but Eva and Addie escaped before the doctors could strip Eva’s soul away.

Now fugitives, Eva and Addie find shelter with a group of hybrids who run an underground resistance. Surrounded by others like them, the girls learn how to temporarily disappear to give each soul some much-needed privacy. Eva is thrilled at the chance to be alone with Ryan, the boy she’s falling for, but troubled by the growing chasm between her and Addie. Despite clashes over their shared body, both girls are eager to join the rebellion.

Yet as they are drawn deeper into the escalating violence, they start to wonder: How far are they willing to go to fight for hybrid freedom? Faced with uncertainty and incredible danger, their answers may tear them apart forever.


Between The Lives - Jessica Shirvington

I bought this one! Just happened to see it when I was Mother’s Day shopping… haha Yes, I do that a lot. I’ve heard some really great things about this book and so I grabbed a copy. :)

Above all else, though I try not to think about it, I know which life I prefer. And every night when I Cinderella myself from one life to the next a very small, but definite, piece of me dies. The hardest part is that nothing about my situation has ever changed. There is no loophole.

Until now, that is…

For as long as she can remember, Sabine has lived two lives. Every 24 hours she Shifts to her ′other′ life - a life where she is exactly the same, but absolutely everything else is different: different family, different friends, different social expectations. In one life she has a sister, in the other she does not. In one life she′s a straight-A student with the perfect boyfriend, in the other she′s considered a reckless delinquent. Nothing about her situation has ever changed, until the day when she discovers a glitch: the arm she breaks in one life is perfectly fine in the other.

With this new knowledge, Sabine begins a series of increasingly risky experiments which bring her dangerously close to the life she′s always wanted… But just what - and who - is she really risking?


The Originals - Cat Patrick

I knew I’d heard of this one, but the Australian cover (left) looks different to the US one, so it wasn’t until I bought this and looked it up on Goodreads that I pieced it together. The thing I like about Cat Patrick’s books are that she has a great imagination, and her books are always unlike everything else I’ve read. Looking forward to this.

Ella, Betsey and I look like sisters: triplets, you might think.

But that’s not what we are at all.

We are clones in hiding. We split out lives and exist as one person in the outside world. And we’ve always been happy.

But now I’ve fallen in love … and that changes everything.

Because to let love in, I need to be allowed to be Me.
