Stacked (49)

Hello again! Thank you for stopping by Stacked, my weekly haul post. I actually have a pretty nice stash of books this week. I received a few things for review bought a few things as well. Let's get into it!


Tiger Lily by Jodi Anderson - I have been wanting to read this one for a while now. I even checked it out from the library a few times and never got around to it. But it was the Kindle Daily Deal sometime this week and I snatched it up.

Anchored by A.J. Larrieu - Adult paranormal novella. The author contacted me for a possible review and, after reading a brief excerpt, I decided to give it a go.

Ink by Amanda Sun - From NetGalley. Not going to lie. I picked this one for the cover alone. I love watercolors and this actually reminds me of David Mack, one of my favorite artists. Besides a gorgeous cover, the premise sounds really cool.

Ooh...physical books!

Envy & Betrayal by Gregg Olsen - Thanks to Crystal from Elegantly Bound Reviews for gifting these two to me. I have been wanting to read this creepy looking series.

From What I Remember by Stacey Kramer & Valerie Thomas - Bought a brand new hardcover from the library bookstore for $1!

Old City Blues by Giannis Milonogiannis - Picked this up from the publisher at WonderCon. They always have cool stuff and this one was suggested to me. Looks really dark and gritty.

The Killer: Volume 1 by Matz & Luc Jacamon - Another pick WonderCon. I wanted to get this last year but they had run out of Vol 1. Another one that looks prett dark.

Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers came out this week, too, and I really want to get it. Just not sure if I want to get the hardcover or the eBook. Probably the eBook but we'll see. I may go see The Host this weekend, too. Has anyone seen it yet? Yay or nay? Have an awesome weekend, everyone!


  1. I tried to read Tiger Lily but it just didn't grab me. I'm thinking it's my mood more then the book though.

    I really want to read Ink. It's been on my TBR list for awhile.

  2. Did you get Ink from NG? I got declined for that one. Looking forward to hearing what you think!

    The Olsen books are creepy and very different from other YA books out there.

    I had the same issue with Tiger Lily. Glad we both own it now :)

    Did you see The Host? The reviews have not been kind at all, but I'm still curious about it.

    1. hi lucy! yes i got ink from ng. i actually thought they would decline but they didn't. sometimes i have no idea what the criteria is that they go by.

      and i did see the host. i thought it was entertaining and i like the main actor. i do think there was probably a lot missing from the book. it could have had much more depth. and i thought that the relationship between melanie and wanda was very poorly developed. it makes me curious about the book though. have been thinking of writing a mini review but we'll see if i ever get around to it. if you liked the book, i would check it out.


We love comments! They really make our day so please don't be shy and let us know what you're thinking.
