Stacking the Shelves (5)

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews. Bloggers share what new books (physical or virtual) they got these week. This is the first week that I'm participating! I like getting new books and showing them. So here's my haul for this week! 

Awesome week, especially in books! I got approved for some amazing titles on NetGalley and bought books I'm dying to read. I wish there were more hours in a day, because I don't want to wait before reading them! I want them all now! But I'll be patient :). I haven't got much reading done this week, it's been busy, but it's definitely not the book's fault. Throne of Glass is amazing. But that's not what we're here for, so my haul:

I heard so many amazing things about this book. At first I thought it wasn't my cup of tea, but after all those awesome reviews I really wanted to read this book. And I got approved on NetGalley!

This week has been amazing! Next to Pushing the Limits I got approved for Spark. Could you hear me scream? Because I did. And I danced! I'm dying to read this title!

That cover! If a book has a cover like that I MUST read it. And the greatest part? The synopsis is even more amazing!

Series: Elemental #1

Did you read I got approved for Spark?!! I can't wait to read this book, I don't know why I didn't do that sooner! Although I'm not even that late, April isn't that far away.

Title: Paranormalcy
Author: Kiersten White

Pages: 335
Series: Paranormalcy #1

I read a very persuasive review about this series and I decided to buy the book and I did. Now the waiting starts before I can actually read it.

I don't know why, but I never read the synopsis of this book. I thought I did and thought I didn't like it. I came across an amazing review, read the synopsis and bought the book immediately. Next time I'll read a synopsis a thousand times, just to be sure!

What's your haul?


  1. I love the Paranormalcy series, and I have Storm and Pushing the Limits and can't wait to read them. These are some awesome books, I really want Dance of Shadows too!

    My Haul :)

  5. Hey i'm a new follower :) I discovered your blog thanks to Stacking the shelves meme.
    Omg you got so much good books this week !
    I just saw the cover of Dance of shadows yesterday and I love it it's stunning.I want to buy this cover just for its cover ^^.
    I read Storm last month but I was a little disappointed so I don't think i'm going to read the rest of the series. But I hope you'll like it more than me.
    I heard good things about Pushing the limits. Actually this book came out here in France before the US release which I found funny ^^.
    Oh you also got Obsidian !I loved it. I can't wait to read the second book Onyx.
    Happy reading :).

  6. Great haul! I recently read Paranormalcy and I absolutely loved it. I can't wait to read the rest of the series! I really need to start Jennifer Armentrout's series. I haven't read any of her novels at all!

    Thanks for sharing. :)

  7. I really REALLY want to read the Elemental series! I'm going to have to buy the first book when my ban is over. WOW, the cover of Dance of Shadows is one of the most beautiful covers I've seen. Love it!

  8. I really enjoyed Obsidian! Paranormalcy was OK but perhaps I should give the series another chance considering they're all released now, I hate waiting for sequels to be out! Congrats that you got approved to so many great books, hopefully you'll get auto-approved soon! Happy reading! :)

    My Haul

  9. Pushing the Limits is absolutely incredible!! I really hope you love it. :) It seems like everyone does though! (and with good reason) Enjoy :)

  10. Storm sounds so good!! *-*

  11. Awesome haul. I really wanna read Obsidian & Paranormalcy. The others sound interesting too, i like Dance of Shadows cover.

    Thanks for stopping by! Happy reading!

  12. great lineup, I am now reading Shadows (prequel to Obsidian, of the Lux series) then will read Obsidian, I am told if you have not read any of them, that it is even better to start with Shadows. Also, I do not have Storm or Spark yet, but did pick up the prequel of them too, called Elemental, will get to it soon I hope.
    thanks for stopping by my post.

  13. I've read The Lure Of Shapinsay and I really liked it, I own Storm and Obsidian but have yet to read them, great haul, thanks for stopping by!

  14. I just read Obsidian last week..and I LOVED IT! Hope you do too :)

    Happy reading and thanks for stopping by my stacking the shelf post :)

  15. I have to agree that Dance of the Shadows has a great image.
