Stacking the Shelves (15)


Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews - it's a way for us to share the books we received during the week

Vlog - if you're here to see Molly, this week she pops in at 3.40 minutes:




For review:

Spark by Rachael Craw (NZ YA)
More Than This by Patrick Ness 
Dangerous Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl

Purchased:

This is Shyness by Leanne Hall (Aussie YA)

I mentioned in my vlog that by today I may have put up a recap of the National Book Bloggers Forum that I attended on Tuesday....but I didn't get around to it. I'll try and get one up this week!

Also, the OzYAChat is on again this week! Join us Thursday, May 29 at 7pm AEST to talk about Aussie YA sci-fi and fantasy

  2. So sorry to hear about your cancelled trip :( Hopefully you'll be able to get around to going next year. That's shitty, the lack of YA being featured at these forums, considering how many awesome talented YA authors we have out there.

    Can't wait to see what you think of More Than This, I loved it madly and didn't really expect to. I'm completely over Patrick Ness and his abusive Tweets towards those with ideals that don't match his own though.

  9. I literally just finished reading More Than This! I was really pleased with it, though a teeeny bit confused, if I'm honest, at the end. Hehe. I can't wait to see what YOU think of it. x)

  14. Ooo, the cover of Spark is beautiful indeed. I'm gonna head over to Goodreads and check out This is Shyness because that title really grabbed me, and Run because I hate when an awesome book doesn't get the attention it deserves. Thanks for sharing, enjoy the rest of your weekend :)

  15. Mands you get to attend so many fun blogging events, I can't wait to read your recap post. And I have heard many amazing things about This is Shyness, I can't wait to start my copy! Enjoy all your books!

  16. The 1st National Book Blogging Forum sounds like it was a blast too, it's great that you got to attend :D I'm very sorry that you won't be making your trip to the US this year though :( Your giveaway idea sounds wonderful though, I've promised myself to do more giveaways this year too, but I'll start when I get back.

    Seeing Dangerous Creatures there just reminded me that I have the entire Beautiful Creatures series waiting for me to get into! I'd want to read those before even getting into that series and honestly I'm not sure how I'll like any of it hehe It's not too bad though I got them on e-book for cheap. Spark sounds/look really interesting, I'll be keeping my eye out for that one and well as your review(/mani?) on it :) More than this sounds interesting too. Oh and, Molly ♥♥♥ she gave us 'sweet-eyes' , that was adorable! Awww I'm smiling like an idiot over here haha Happy reading Mands xxxx

  23. I'm only here to see Molly. J/k. Fun book haul this week. I really want to read More Than This. Enjoy!

  24. I have yet to read a Patrick Ness book, but I've heard such good things. I'm somewhat curious about Dangerous Creatures, but couldn't get into the first "Dangerous" series despite my best efforts (I think I picked up the first book, like, 3 or 4 times, but never made it past the first 10 or so pages). I hope you love them all!

  25. Haha I love that you have a Molly time call out, she is quite a draw in the vids. :-) I'm sorry your trip was cancelled, but the National Book Bloggers Forum sounds like a fun event, almost like BEA. Awesome book haul this week, I think This is Shyness and Run sound awesome!

  26. Not going to America is TRAGICAL!

    I got given a copy of Spark too, will not be getting to it for several weeks though. I'll look forward to seeing your thoughts.
