Filling the Shelf – 19

Filling the Shelf is basically Mailbox Monday (created by The Printed Page) or In my Mailbox (created by The Story Siren ), but with a title that suits my blog 😀 If you’re interested in joining the fun or seeing what other bloggers added to their shelves, I invite you to visit those two awesome bloggers!

I think I have been settling at a good pace recently; I have actually been reading more than what I’ve been buying! I don’t see visible changes in my TBR pile yet (it’s too ginormous for that), but I’m on a good way I believe!

Here are the books I got my hands on recently :

The Rehearsal by Eleanor Catton : I bought this one out of curiosity, than read good reviews of it. I actually started reading it already and I like it so far!

Feed by Mira Grant : Zombies!!! Need I say more?

The Passage by Justin Cronin : Many bloggers have mentioned that the book is huge; it is. But what many haven’t mentioned is that it’s also written really small! I mean, regular size font, but smaller than most YA novels. I’m keeping it for when the summer semester is over as I can’t imagine carrying this around in the subway! It’s pretty though, a bit shiny and all!

Insatiable by Meg Cabot : As a Meg Cabot fan, I’m really excited about this one. I can’t wait to actually start reading it!

The Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen : I found a hardcover on the bargain shelves at the bookstore and got it for five dollars! Sweet! I’ve heard a lot of good on the author.

Daughters of Fortune by Tara Hyland : Fashion dynasty! Heiresses! Illegitimate daughter! Rich people with lots of Drrrama! I got the ebook for only a couple of dollars, and this sounds good for when I need a book to relax.

Your turn now! Have you read any of these books? Which one should I start with first? What was in your mailbox this week?

    Yay for the new Meg Cabot! I’m such a huge fan and can’t wait to read that one. The Sugar Queen was so fun and sweet — hope you love it as much as I did!

    Mystica : I’ve heard so much good on this book, I can’t wait to read it too! And I’m telling you, I’m curious to see what I’ll make of The Passage too, after all I’ve heard about it!

    Amy : Thanks! I hope I do, too. Can’t wait to get my nose in them!

    Meg : Haha! I can’t wait to read Cabot’s new book, either. I’m hoping to read it this week, or the next at the latest.

    Toothy : Hehe thanks! That’s a feat for me! And yes, I absolutely think you should make an exception and buy the book, otherwise, it’s just too hard to stop buying completely! 😉

    Beth : I know! I’m curious too, I hope I’ll like it as much as most people did.

    I love the cover for Feed. Wow! And The Rehearsal looks intriguing too. I’ve seen a few people on the blogosphere get the new Meg Cabot book. I’m waiting to see what they say about it until I stick it on my list. 🙂 Daughters of Fortune – That should be a laugh. 😀

  10. avisannschild says :

    I’m envious: I want to read both The Passage and The Sugar Queen! Enjoy!

    I almost bought The Passage the other day because I’ve heard so many great things about it. But. I don’t think I can even handle a book that big being on my shelf right now. Just too long. And yes, reading it while commuting might be a challenge – I do lots of my reading on the commute, too. But it may help with building up arm muscles!
