Filling the Shelf – 57

Filling the Shelf is basically Mailbox Monday (this month hosted by Cindy’s Love of Books) 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 features!

Happy Monday all!

This week is the Face Closeup edition! It’s like that time where all my new books had flowers on them. It’s kind of funny, and mostly accidental, I assure you!

So here are my new books :

The Calling by Kelley Armstrong : I really enjoyed the first of that trilogy and I’m looking forward to reading this one, even though the reviews aren’t so stellar so far.

The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa : I’m reading this one right now, and loving it so far! I’m almost done with it, so review should be coming soon.

The Taker by Alma Katsu : The only non YA title of the week has an intriguing premise of immortality and love. I’m a bit sad though that the paperback has such a different cover from the hardback one.

The Book of Blood and Shadow by Robin Wasserman : A mystery, centuries-old manuscripts, secret societies… sounds great!

Glimmer by Phoebe Kitanidis : “Marshall and Elyse wake up in each other’s arms with zero memory of how they got there or who they are”; sounds like the beginning of an intriguing adventure!

Chime by Franny Billingsley : It’s been strongly recommended to me (mainly by Nafiza!) ; magic, romance and all that jazz. Looking forward to it!

What did you add to your shelves recently? Have you read one of these two books?

    It’s interesting that all the covers feature a woman’s face. I haven’t read any of the books but hope you enjoy them.

    Chime!!!! I’ll be so sad if you don’t like it. Haha. The writing is unbelievably gorgeous and it has the most awesome protagonist ever.

    Books like The Taker are usually not my thing but I read it and really ended up liking it. Enjoy all of your new books!

    I’ve heard great things about The Taker. I know I’ll read it at some point. Have a good week!

    The Taker is such an amazing book, and now there is a novelette that comes between the first book and the second, which is to be released soon. I loved that story, and can’t wait to read more of it! I also have Chime, and have heard some very good things about it! Enjoy your new reads!

    That is a very different cover for The Taker. I like it! I haven’t read it yet but hear it is very good. I hope we both enjoy it.

    Great mailbox! I’m reading The Calling right now and it’s not bad—not as great as the first, which I loved, but still good! Aw, I don’t like the cover change for The Taker! I think I’m already tiring of the mask trend in covers lol. Glimmer and Book of Blood & Shadow are up next for me and I can’t wait!

    Happy Reading!
