Welcome to Teenage Fiction's Stacking the Shelves for this week. Today's post is brought to you by Nicole, who got a ridiculous amount of books in the mail (hard copies! I LOVE hard copies so much even though I own a Kindle) and is super excited to share them with you! Also joining us in this post are Maxine and Alvie, who are also eager to share this week's books with you all.
I ordered Shine a while back from the Book Depo since it isn't available in Australia from what I can tell, so I am incredibly excited to get it, although I think I like the version with the smaller title better.
I got Dark Kiss as a gift and I'm not sure what to do with it since I've already read the ARC and didn't find it particularly interesting, but if I ever get through my TBR pile I'll re-read it. Or maybe I'll donate it to the library.
I found Looking for Alibrandi (behold, OLD VERSION) at my grandma's house, which was pretty surprising. She claims it's my dad's who claims (that's what he said!) he would never read such a girly book, but either way, I'm pleased to have it.
Finally, from a book fair with stunningly low prices (seriously--both books were in virtually perfect condition and cost me $6 altogether) and an amazing collection, I have Careful What you Wish For and The Ask and the Answer.
Pookie Aleera is Not my Boyfriend--I've read the first poem and this book sounds really interesting, although the ants on the cover are rather disconcerting, as I'm somehow convinced they're kind of real. Eh. Anyway, thank you so much to UQP!
Here are my odds and ends that I forgot to post last week:
Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver, which I finished a few days ago and absolutely loved. The review will be up soon, and it was a truly stunning read.
On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta, which I look forward to starting in the near future.
A signed copy of Team Human (not in the picture). You can read more about that here, and look at pictures of Alvie's signed copy below.
All that I Am by Anna Funder, which won the Miles Franklin award. We got our copy from the Book Depo, and I am really excited to read.
A signed copy of Team Human by Sarah Rees Brennan and Justine Larbalestier.
Maxine's LootFor the Kindle: The Book of Blood and Shadow by Robin Wasserman, and Wanderlove by Kristen Hubbard.
Whew, that was a lot of books. So that's it from us--what did you get this week? Link to your Showcase Sundays, Stacking the Shelves, In my Mailboxes, whatever, and we'll check your post out!
