manda-rae's Haul

Stacking the Shelves consists of books we received in the last week, hosted by Tynga's reviews.

I hope everyone had a fantastic week this past week!  Unfortunately, I'm probably working right now.  Oh well, I'll be home soon enough and reading.  Or training for the quarter marathon I plan on running in three months.  By the way, I'm three followers from planning another giveaway.  Happy reading everybody!


  • The Rise of Nine by Pittacus Lore
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • My husband actually bought this book.  He got sick of waiting for me to read the second one and pick up the third.  Guess I need to pick up The Power of Six sometime soon.

From the Library:

  • Asunder by Jodi Meadows
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • I have to admit that I thought Incarnate got more hype than it deserved.  Either that or I was missing something while reading it.  But alas, the story was cute enough to want to continue.  It only get better, right?
  • Pivot Point by Kasie West
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • I must admit that this will probably be my first debut author for the year.  It caught my interest and was receiving high ratings.  So, I decided to jump in and want to read it.

For Review (e-edition):

Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead
I kind of giggled and clapped when I got the link for this book.  Favorite author here...  Since this is the series that kind of replaced the other series I loved (Storm Born) and totally thought she could continue with anyway, back to what I was originally trying to say - I hope it's good (better than Bloodlines anyways).  Ugh, I argue with myself sometimes.  Thanks goes to Penguin Group Dutton and Netgalley.

The Girl with the Iron Touch by Kady Cross
I'm actually one of the few who thought the second book in this series was better than the first.  I didn't think the characters were quite developed in the first, but they totally grew on me with the second.  So of course I'm picking up the third.  Thanks goes to Harlequin and Netgalley.

  6. I haven't read the Pittcus Lore books, but I am curious about them. I saw the movie I am Number Four. I definitely want to read the Steampunk Chronicles though. I've heard good things. I just need more time :)

    Anyway, enjoy your goodies and happy reading!
