Stacking the Shelves-the five weeks haul

Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!
Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga at Tynga's reviews.

July so far is pretty busy with guests in the house and with the thesis that I intend to finish in the next couple of weeks. I did post a few reviews, but I didn't participate in memes because I didn't have time to visit around much. In this Stacking the Shelves edition I tried to compile everything bookish that arrived at my place in the last five weeks. Hope I don't forget something!


(Part 2 of Lover Awakened in the English edition) The rest of the series is coming in winter first so I'm taking a break from the Brotherhood. Lover Awakened is my favorite so far. But I say that for every next in the series. 

Across the Universe by Beth Revis (paperback)
I plain adored this one, reviewed it and gave it five stars.

Forever by Maggie Stiefvater (paperback, Croatian edition)
I've read Shiver a while ago, received Linger as a present (haven't read it yet), and now I have the complete series. I'll probably have to reread Shiver as well. Been too long.


Obsidian by JL Armentrout (for Kindle)
I bought this hiiiiighly anticipated read two days ago. Finished it yesterday and was disappointed (yes, I know I'm in the minority). Review will be up these days, once I gather my thoughts. 


The Beach Holiday by Anita Hughes (finished copy, paperback)
from Ebury Press
Read, reviewed, just not posted yet. An okay pool/beach book.


Wanted: Dead or Undead by Angela Scott (finished copy, paperback, signed) from the author
This was on my radar for quite a while. I've been a follower of Angela's blog for more than two years now and watched the process of getting this book published. Angela asked if anyone wanted to give a home to a batch of books damaged in the mail. I got one (on my birthday!) The copy I received is in near perfect condition, save for the lower right corner being a bit curved. But I received ARCs in worse state than that.
And I finished this one too. It's definitely different and I liked it very much. Will be reviewed shortly.

I was one of the participants in the blog tour. I hosted an interview and wasn't required to review Coexist, but I'll probably read it and review soon. Julia was extra sweet, surprising us all by sending all participants Amazon gift cards. Many thanks!


The Road by Cormac McCarthy. While I did adore some aspects of the book, the ending threw me off a bit. But I'd still highly recommend it if you're looking for a chilling post-apocalyptic novel. 


You know how much I loved Cicada by Belle Whittington? Belle is a darling. We're always saying hi on Facebook or messaging back and forth about everything. She was holding a contest for signed Cicada bookmarks on her FB page, and asked if I would like to have some. Here are the pretties with a special appearance by Holley Shiftwell:

Sorry for the bad pic. I'd blame it on the camera, but it's actually my photography skills that don't extend further than "Which button do I have to press?"

So, that's it from me. I can't wait to see what you got!
