manda-rae's Haul

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

Hi everybody.  So I've been incredibly awesome with my reading so far this year, but I've haven't been doing awesome with my blogging.  I realized I have a couple of books that I've already finished reading without doing a haul announcement.  So...  Let me brag about the books I've gotten in the past couple of weeks...

For Review:

  • Panic by Lauren Oliver
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • I'm almost done with this one.  And it's not really what I was expecting.  But I'm hoping there's some epic ending, surprise-everything-makes-sense sort of thing soon.  Otherwise, I don't know if I'll like the book.  Thanks goes to Around the World ARC Tours.

From the Library:

  • Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • Yes, all of my books from the library are series continuations.  And so far, they don't disappoint.  If you enjoyed Grave Mercy, you'll enjoy this one.  Although this one has a much darker feel to it.  But I love the historical fantasy wrapped around some historical time point.  I feel like I'm learning a little bit of Brittany/France's past (even if it is just a little).
  • Altered by Gennifer Albin
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • Dare I say I enjoyed this book more than the first?  The books were different from each other, and I loved them for their different roles they played.  The first introduced you to a new fantasy while the second one explained the fantasy's world.  And woah, you get blown away.  As a fan of explanations that make sense and aren't cheesy, I enjoyed this book immensely.
  • The Trap by Andrew Fukuda
    • Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
      • This is the only book I haven't read yet in my post.  You know how there are some series that you're really looking forward to the last book in the series because the author can't string you along anymore?  Well, I'm really looking forward to the end of this book.  And if I get strung along again, I might burn this book and just pay the library replacement fees.


  • Swag Goodies from Faye at a Daydreamer's Thoughts
      • When I received a package in the mail, my first thought was, "Who is this and how does he/she know me?"  Yeah, I wasn't expecting anything from England, and my curiosity peaked.  And then I opened it and saw swag and lots of it.  And there was a note from Faye congratulating me on winning a giveaway.  And then everything clicked.  It's awesome receiving goodies from outside the country.  Thanks Faye!
