New Books = Winning at (reading) Life!

Happy Weekend! Hope this edition of Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews, finds you well. I don't often have anything worth sharing on Saturday mornings, but.......... I am a winner! Check out what I won at the Teen Author Carnival last week. I have literally NEVER won ANYTHING in a raffle or lottery, so I feel pretty boss about this.

  •  Scott Tracey's Witch Eyes and the sequel Demon Eyes, due out in October. I heard Tracey talk, and he described this series as magic + Romeo and Juliet! Whoa!
  • Karen Manhoney's Iron Witch and the Wood Queen (I guess my fairy break is officially over).
  • Tom Pollock's The City's Son, due out in September. A mystical underworld in London and a ragtag band of misfits fighting evil.
  • Crissa-Jean Chappell's Narc, due out in August. Contemporary YA on high school and drugs, clearly the more serious of the selection.
What did you get a hold of this weekend? I am taking my new YA sunscreen (errrrrrrr, seriously, I also got this as advertising for Burn for Burn by Siobhan Vivian and Jenny Han, and included it since it is all sorts of crazy) outside!

Oh is that Lauren Oliver being awesome next to Siobhan Vivian? YUP!


  1. You got a TON of awesome stuff! I'm loving your Burn for Burn sunblock, LOL! ;) I'm also extremely jealous of all the ARCs you got and Iron Witch. That book seriously looks amazing. I hope you enjoy!

    Check out my Stacking the Shelves!

  2. Awesome haul! I've got the Iron Witch and Wood Queen to read too!

    Letterbox Love!

    NArc looks really good, and the Iron Witch is kinda interesting. I'll have to research the rest, I always do. :)
    Btw, Revived wasn't half bad after all. Nothing much, but not bad either.


Comments? Heck ya!
