Two exams down, one left! I’ve been studying and sneaking in some books for the End of the Year 2013 Readathon, so it’s been good. Haven’t done much else haha. I really must get Christmas presenting shopping soon! Happy Mid-December everybody!

BOOK HAUL

STSmall_thumb25255B225255DStacking the Shelves post! Hosted by Tynga’s Reviews, Stacking the Shelves is a chance to showcase new books, ones checked out from the library, bought, won or received for review.

I finally made it to Edelweiss to grab some books.

Vivian Divine Is Dead - Lauren Sabel(01) Vivian Divine is Dead by Lauren Sabel

Thanks Katherine Tegen Books & Edelweiss! This book sounds like it’ll be both serious and hilarious (hopefully). Also, I quite entertained by the cover.

Don't You Forget About Me - Kate Karyus Quinn(02) (Don’t You) Forget About Me by Kate Karyus Quinn

Thanks Harper Teen & Edelweiss! I was definitely excited when this guy popped up! This was my WoW a while back & it still sounds good! The Pied Piper feel totally adds that extra creepy tone on top of the already cult-ish/paranormal scariness!

The Last Best Kiss - Claire LaZebnick(03) The Last Best Kiss by Claire LaZebnick

Thanks Harper Teen & Edelweiss! So this is a YA contemporary play on Jane Austen’s Persuasion! How adorable, I love the cover. I’ve read LaZebnick’s Epic Fail (the re-imagination of Pride and Prejudice) and it was quite adorable, so high hopes for this.

Sapphires Are an Earl's Best Friend - Shana Galen(04) Sapphires Are an Earl’s Best Friend by Shana Galen

Thanks Sourcebook Casablanca & Netgalley! So this is the final book the the Jewel of the Ton Series. The first two books were pretty enjoyable and I’m always up up for a Regency spy romance! Oh I almost forgot, I wrote a sorta useless review of If You Give a Rake a Ruby (Book 2) a while back. Since it was a Book & Munchies post, there’s food pictures at least!

Sleepless - Tracey Ward(05) Sleepless by Tracey Ward

Thanks Lite-Rate-Ture! I received this for a blog tour. I actually already read this for the End of the Year 2013 Readathon. It was pretty crazy. Definitely an interesting almost superhero/romance book. I need to be more aware of if books are the first in a series…

  1. I’ve got (Don’t You) Forget About Me as well. Everytime I see the cover I think of The Breakfast Club, so that’s pretty awesome. And the cover just looks amazing anyway.

    Mind checking out my Sunday Post/Stacking the Shelves?

    Have a great week!

  3. Vivian Divine is Dead sounds interesting. I had no idea about the Top 10. I am doing three days the 30, 31 and 1st with my top ten YA, NA and Adult reads. Too bad I am booked solid or I would move it around. Keep your head in the game for those finals and enjoy your reading.
