Filling the Shelf – 59

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! I know I am a bit late but it was a very busy day for me. Still, new books arrived and I wanted to share them with you!

I’ve been cleaning up my shelves a lot, and many books will be donated, which only makes me feel half as bad about my TBR pile. Before April, I was reading more books than I was buying, and I want to go back to that plan in May. Wish me luck! 🙂

The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbauch

The Map of True Places by Brunonia Barry (I read The Lace Reader last fall and really liked it, so I had to read this one)

Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers 

Everneath by Brodi Ashton


Cinder 
by Marissa Meyer

Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris

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!

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!

Happy Monday to everyone! 🙂 I hope you had a nice Easter weekend. Here, we ate a lot of chocolate. Yum!

I had, once again, great books in my mailbox this week! Not sure which one I’m the most excited about; probably Sacré Bleu, which sounds perfect for me!

Sacré Bleu by Christopher Moore : This. Sounds. Awesome!!! I have only read one book of Moore before, but I really, really can’t wait to put my nose in this one. It’s beautiful!

Fear by Michael Grant : I’ve been a fan of the series and I am really looking forward to see what happens next in this fifth book. Grant has a crazy imagination, for me he’s like the YA version of Stephen King.

Uglies; Shay’s Story by Scott Westerfeld : The graphic version of the Uglies series. Already read, review coming this week.

Soulless by Gail Carriger and Rem : At first I thought I would wait until I finished reading the series before reading the graphic novel, but then I realized it would be the perfect way to refresh my memory before reading the following books!

Stay by Deb Caletti : Heard a lot of good about this one, and I enjoyed Caletti’s The Nature of Jade.

Something like Fate by Susane Colasanti : I have read one book of Colasanti before and didn’t particularly enjoyed it, but I like to give authors second chances and I read good reviews of this one.

A bigger mailbox this week, especially since I forgot to post it last week. I want to read them all NOW and I’m not sure where to begin!

How to Eat a Cupcake by Meg Donohue : This looks like a cute, light novel, about cupcakes and relationships.

Paris, My Sweet : A Year in the City of Light (and Dark Chocolate) by Amy Thomas : You all know how much I love Paris, and desserts, so to have the two in one non-fiction book sounds just like heaven!

Where it Began by Ann Redisch Stampler : This one for my debs-2012 challenge. Looking forward to reading this contemporary YA novel.

Wanderlove by Kirsten Hubbard : Already, this one has received many glowing reviews. Road trip! Yippee!

Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys : Historical fiction taking place during World War II ; a nice change from the usual YA settings. Again, I read many positive reviews of this one, so I’m excited to read it!

The Summer of Skinny Dipping by Amanda Howells : I have been wanting to read this one since last year, I’m glad to finally have it!

A smaller mailbox this week – not a bad thing!

The History of Love by Nicole Krauss : I have been wanting to read this one for a while; when I asked for book recommendations last week, this one was greatly recommended, so I thought it was time. I’m planning on reading it soon, probably this week!

The Other Life by Susanne Winnacker : If I say “post-apocalypse” and “zombies”, then you already know why this one landed in my home. Looking forward to reading this one!
