Stacking the Shelves #3

So it's been a while since I've done a Stacking the Shelves. So let's get down to business.


Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews. It's a way to share books we've borrowed, gathered, or received.

Like I said it's been since December since I've done one and I don't do them regularly, which means I've gotten tons of swag and what not.
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein (bought) I'm reading this one right now and I was so excited for it, but I'm not feeling it. I don't know if I'll finish it or not.
The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey (bought) I'm so excited for this one!
Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi (recieved) Thank you Epic Reads and Harper Teen! I read Shatter Me and I want to read this one, but I want to get Destroy Me first because it seems necessary to read.
Easy by Tammara Webber (bought) I really can't wait to read this one! It sounds fantastic.
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green (bought) I'm going to finally lose my Green virginity and hopefully have my soul crushed!
The Iron King by Julie Kagawa (bought) I'm really looking forward to this one because I've heard so many great things.
The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa (bought) I'm really excited for this because it sounds epic! I have the new cover, but I think it's way better than the first one in person.

Rush bookmark by Eve Silver Thank you so much, Eve! I can't wait to read Rush and I'm so happy I got a signed bookmark from one.:)
2 Game. Set. Match. bookmarks and an #OBoxers wristband by Jennifer Iacopelli  Thank you to Jennifer the SWAG and hosting the #OBxers Team!

Excuse my feet! My feet are so pale. I'm a lot tanner I promise!
Looking for Alaska by John Green (bought) Why wouldn't I buy this one? It's a given. Plus it's been a while since I read a drug addiction novel.
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare (bought) I'm an Infernal Devices virgin and I can't wait to see what this series has to offer.
Shut Out by Kody Keplinger (bought) YAY! I loved The DUFF and I can't wait to read Shut Out!
On Dublin Street by Samantha Young (bought) I'm really curious about this one and whether I'll be swept away! *fingers crossed*
Tilt by Ellen Hopkins (bought) I haven't read Hopkins in forever and I miss her books so much. I can't wait to read Tilt, but I think I might try to get my hands on Triangles so I'll have a better understanding of the kids.

The Vincent Boys by Abbi Glines (bought) I bought this on impulse and a few people recommended it to me. Let's see how that one goes.
Gates of Paradise by Melissa de la Cruz (bought) I'm a die hard fan of the Blue Bloods series, but I heard that it's best to read the Wolf Pact books first. So, I'll be downloading them on my kindle.
Unwind by Neil Shusterman (bought) I'm really looking forward to this one. I've heard so many marvelous things about it.
Beauty Queens by Libba Bray (bought) The summary sounds great and I can't wait to see the tiaras fly!
The Host by Stephenie Meyer (gifted by my mom) My mom bought this for me before the movie came out and I was reading a thousand books so I still haven't gotten to it. I still haven't seen the movie.
Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl (bought) I want to see the movie and I figured I should read the book first. It has a poster inside, but I'm not sure if I'll read it soon due to the negative reviews.

Wild About You by Kerrelyn Sparks (bought) I love the Love at Stake series and I can't wait to pick this one up!
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky I absolutely adored this one! 5 stars
Obsidian and Onyx by Jennifer Armentrout They were so amazing! I can't wait to finish the series. BOTH 5 Stars 
He's Gone by Deb Caletti (won) I received this one through GoodReads FirstReads! I really liked this one and it was great to read something by Caletti again. 3.5 stars 
Halfway to the Grave by Jeaniene Frost (bought) I haven't reviewed this one yet, but I absolutely loved it! I'll be reviewing it soon!
Just One Day by Gayle Forman (bought) This one is absolutely amazing and I highly recommend it! 5 stars 
17 & Gone by Nova Ren Suma (won and signed!) I can't believe I won this one! Thanks so much Penguin Teen and Ms. Suma! 5 stars 
This Is Not a Test by Courtney Summers (bought) This book is absolutely beautiful and I haven't reviewed it yet, but be on the lookout for my review! 
Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma (bought) This book broke my heart and it's probably one of the most heartbreaking books I've read this year. 5 stars
The Dark Light by Sara Walsh (bought) I was so excited for this book, but it was disappointing. 3.75 stars 

I have a bunch more books that I've received, but I'll save them for next week since I don't plan on getting anytime soon! Be sure to leave me a comment with the link to your Stacking the Shelves! I love reading them or watching them! HAPPY READING AND MAY THE ODDS BE EVER IN YOUR FAVOR... IN BOOK BUYING!
