Stacking the Shelves [6]

20131019-214320“Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!”

This is my sixth Statcking the Shelves, hosted over at Tynga’s Reviews!

I tried really really hard not to buy anymore books (I promise I did!) but of course that didn’t work. Buying books is like therapy, some girls splash out on expensive handbags and shoes, I pop into Waterstones. So here’s the books I gave into this week 🙂

Bought.

Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld.

Darcy Patel has put college and everything else on hold to publish her teen novel, Afterworlds. Arriving in New York with no apartment or friends she wonders whether she’s made the right decision until she falls in with a crowd of other seasoned and fledgling writers who take her under their wings… Told in alternating chapters is Darcy’s novel, a suspenseful thriller about Lizzie, a teen who slips into the ‘Afterworld’ to survive a terrorist attack. But the Afterworld is a place between the living and the dead and as Lizzie drifts between our world and that of the Afterworld, she discovers that many unsolved – and terrifying – stories need to be reconciled. And when a new threat resurfaces, Lizzie learns her special gifts may not be enough to protect those she loves and cares about most.

Lies We Tell Ourselves by Robin Talley

It’s 1959. The battle for civil rights is raging. And it’s Sarah Dunbar’s first day of school, as one of the first black students at the previously all-white Jefferson High. No one wants Sarah there. Not the Governor. Not the teachers. And certainly not the students – especially Linda Hairston, daughter of the town’s most ardent segregationist. Sarah and Linda have every reason to despise each other. But as a school project forces them to spend time together, the less their differences seem to matter. And Sarah and Linda start to feel something they’ve never felt before. Something they’re both determined ignore. Because it’s one thing to be frightened by the world around you – and another thing altogether when you’re terrified of what you feel inside.

The Infinite Sea (The 5th Wave #2) by Rick Yancey

How do you rid the Earth of seven billion humans? Rid the humans of their humanity.
Surviving the first four waves was nearly impossible. Now Cassie Sullivan finds herself in a new world, a world in which the fundamental trust that binds us together is gone. As the 5th Wave rolls across the landscape, Cassie, Ben, and Ringer are forced to confront the Others’ ultimate goal: the extermination of the human race.
Cassie and her friends haven’t seen the depths to which the Others will sink, nor have the Others seen the heights to which humanity will rise, in the ultimate battle between life and death, hope and despair, love and hate.

~also I was in waterstones and they have this fab little ‘Blind Date With A Book’ stand, where the books are wrapped in brown paper with only a tiny bit of information on the front. Exciting right? So of course I picked one up. Mine said ‘first in a trilogy’, ‘compelling characters’ and ‘for fans of Sarah J. Maas (which of course I am) so yay!

That’s all for this weeks Sts, let me know your thoughts and feel free to share your StS link in the comments! x x

  1. Lies We Tell Ourselves was AMAZING. Like I seriously just was glued to that book. And I reeeeally want to read Afterworlds now, because I didn’t know it was a writer writing about being a writer (it’s like writer-inception!) so I definitely need to try it now. ^-^
