Stacking the Shelves: Crash into You and Chase


Huzzah! This weekend we have a fun ARC to feature in Stacking the Shelves. The first I am super jazzed about: Crash into You by Katie McGarry. As you might now, I am into this series (see here) and I featured this book as a WoW. The books gods have been listening, obviously. 

Check out this bit'o'summary: "The girl with straight As, designer clothes and the perfect life—that's who people expect Rachel Young to be. So the private-school junior keeps secrets from her wealthy parents and overbearing brothers…and she's just added two more to the list. One involves racing strangers down dark country roads in her Mustang GT. The other? Seventeen-year-old Isaiah Walker—a guy she has no business even talking to. But when the foster kid with the tattoos and intense gray eyes comes to her rescue, she can't get him out of her mind......"

My boyfriend is going golfing tomorrow. I am getting involved in this book. We both win.

Second up for "new to our shelves" news is Chase by 
Jill Knapp-Zitron.

The question that 23-year old Amalia Hastings desperately wants the answer to is: What happens to men when they move to Manhattan? Life in the new city gives Amalia a ride she is not expecting. As she tries to find her way on the little island that never sleeps, she discovers she has a harder time navigating through love then she does the streets of Greenwich Village and finds herself truly lost in the complex world of men. 
 
“I just want you to be happy” is one of Amalia’s least favorite phrases in the English language. She thought she had everything she needed to be so-called “happy” – a gorgeous apartment in Manhattan, a top-notch education at NYU, a group of trusted friends and Nicholas, a boyfriend who she believes is her soul-mate, but it isn’t enough. The cold, lonely city causes Amalia and her girlfriends to seek refuge in the opposite sex. Stumbling through her relationships, Amalia encounters Michael, an inconsistent friend-with-benefits. After all, the only thing consistent about New York is its beauty. 
 
After getting terribly lost searching for love in all the wrong places, Amalia embarks on a journey to find her strength, which leads her to detox from all things men. She quickly realizes that solely chasing love closes her off to all of the other good things life has to offer. Now she must decide – what is worth the chase? 

This book came out in August and looks delightful. As a NYC resident, and a 20-something, I hope this book does fun city life justice. What is new to your shelf this weekend?  As always, a big thanks to Tygna's Reviews for hosting Stacking the Shelves!
