manda-rae's Haul

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

This week was my husband's birthday.  And we celebrated it on Friday by doing a lot of fun stuff.  Has anyone seen Catching Fire yet?  It is amazeballs!  Better than the first!  Go see it!


  • Allegiant by Veronica Roth
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • This was a birthday present for my husband that would also benefit me.  We haven't read the last book in the series.  And I know everyone is gushing about how amazing this series is.  But the ending of the second book was a major turnoff for me.  I'll still be reading the end of the trilogy though (after my husband's read it of course - it was his birthday present after all).
  • The Fall of Five by Pittacus Lore
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • Another birthday present for my husband.  He's really into the Lorien Legacies.  Me, they're books, and they're entertaining.  So why not.  After all, I have to have something I can discuss with my husband, right?
  • Twice Tempted by Jeaniene Frost
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • A book my husband bought me.  And I'm excited to read it.  The hot and heavy romance.  I'll probably be reading it next.
  • The Fiery Heart by Richelle Mead
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • Another book my husband bought me.  We have this deal where if I work out three times a week for two weeks, he'll buy me a book.  I hate working out and would rather sit on my butt and read.  But it seems getting a new book is enough motivation to get me exercising.

From the Library:

  • Unsouled by Neal Shusterman
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • The end of a fun trilogy for me.  I want to read it.  This is one of the dystopian trilogies out there that I don't think gets enough voice out there in the media world.  I love this series and would tell anyone who likes dystopian novels to try Unwind sometime.

  4. I need a compromise like that to get me to the gym! I have Allegiant, but am a little hesitant to read it right now. Loved Twice Tempted!

    Happy reading!

  5. Enjoy all of your new books!!

  6. I really hope you enjoy Allegiant, before I read that this was one of my all time favourite series but that book really disappointed me. It was my worst read of 2013 but lots of people have loved it, hope you enjoy it! I hope you enjoy all your reads. My STS.

  7. Ohh those are great. And i took a picture of your post and sent it to my boyfriend. I always say "amazeballs" and he thinks it's weird but now I have proof that that word is super awesome!!! high five!!!!
