Filling the Shelf – 58

Filling the Shelf is basically Mailbox Monday (this month hosted by Cindy’s Love of Books), 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 was such a big week for books! I’m not sure how that happened; I usually try to time them better so that I don’t get overwhelmed with them. However, I did make place on my shelves by parting with some books I couldn’t get into or that I hadn’t liked.

Also, two more books arrived on my doorstep as I was writing this; as I am already late with this post, I’ll include them with next week’s books!

The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss : I heard great things about this fantasy novel, and the few pages I read at the bookstore really intrigued me.

The Rook by Daniel O’Malley : A woman who forgot her identity, a secret organization, supernatural forces, Britain : need I say more?

Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta : I heard so much good about that YA fantasy, I can’t wait to see for myself what the praise is about!

Tiger’s Curse by  Colleen Houck : A  300-year-old Indian curse, a white tiger, magic and dark forces. Sounds like fun!

Bunheads by Sophie Flack : Ballet! It’s been a while since I have read a book in the world of dance, which is one of my favorites. Can’t wait to read it!

Perception by Kim Harrington : The sequel to Clarity, which was a fun mystery with a paranormal twist. Plus, pretty cover!

The Selection by Kiera Cass : Already done with this one, review coming soon.

Thumped by Megan McCafferty : I really liked the first book, Bumped, I’m looking forward to reading this one!

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

    The Name of the Wind is a book that I’ve been meaning to read for awhile now. I love the cover of Tiger’s Curse. A book I’ve recently added to my shelves is a special edition of The Secret Garden designed by Jillian Tamaki.

    Apparently, I have been sucked into a very random game of blog tag, and so I have decided to have you come along too! See the question I have asked you at http://wp.me/p2niio-4I
