Stacking the Shelves: So Many Library Books (with those great crinkly plastic covers)

Its Saturday. Yayyyyy! That means.... well more homework for this grad student, but in theory it could be a fun brunch in the Lower East Side. A girl can dream. The good news is, I stopped by the library and got so many good books. I have Bitterblue by Kristin  Cashore (GASP-- I love the first 40 pages), Romeo Redeemed by Stacey Jay (which has LOTS of feelings so far) and The Shadow Society by .  Here is more about Romeo Redeemed and why I am intrigued by this series, Juliet Immortal. And as for The Shadow Society:

Romeo Redeemed (Juliet Immortal #2)Bitterblue (Graceling Realm, #3)

The Shadow Society
Darcy Jones doesn't remember anything before the day she was  abandoned as a child outside a Chicago firehouse. She has never really belonged anywhere—but she couldn’t have guessed that she comes from an alternate world where the Great Chicago Fire didn’t happen and deadly creatures called Shades terrorize the human population. Memories begin to haunt Darcy when a new boy arrives at her high school, and he makes her feel both desire and desired in a way she hadn’t thought possible. But Conn’s interest in her is confusing. It doesn’t line up with the way he first looked at her. As if she were his enemy.

When Conn betrays Darcy, she realizes that she can’t rely on anything—not herself, not the laws of nature, and certainly not him. Darcy decides to infiltrate the Shadow Society and uncover the Shades’ latest terrorist plot. What she finds out will change her world forever . . .

What is new to your bookshelf this weekend? Cheers of our whiskey sour to Tynga's Reviews for hosting Stacking the Shelves. Happy reading!


  1. Ah, I need to get my hands on Bitterblue... LOVED Graceling and Fire... Great haul :)

    Happy Reading :)

  2. I LOVE the cover of Romeo Redeemed. Their pose is perfect, especially with the waves covering half of the girl model's body. Hopefully the book is as good as its cover! :D
