Inspired by Pop Culture Junkie and The Story Siren, Stacked is a weekly post where I share with you the books that I've bought, borrowed or received for the week.
Happy Sunday, all. I hope you've all been having a good weekend. It's been pretty hot here where I live and most of my time has been spent indoors if possible. Yesterday I went to the Ontario Teen Book Fest. I had a fantastic time. The event was really well run and the authors were great. I was pretty good though and only bought one book at the event. This was a good book week for me though because I received a fun stack of books from a friend and I received one pre-order. Let's see what I got!
Thanks, A, for this giant stack of books. Listing them from top to bottom.
The Last Forever by Deb Caletti - I haven't read any Deb Caletti yet but this looks like a great summer read.
Through To You by Lauren Barholdt - Another new to me author. This looks like a sweet romance.
The Girls as the Kingfisher Club by Genevieve Valentine - I am a sucker for fairy tale retellings and is a re-imagining of the Twelve Dancing Princesses but set in the 20's.
Absolutely Truly by Heather Vogel Frederick - I don't know munch about this one but it has a gorgeous illustrated cover.
The Real Life Story: Sally Ride - This isn't the type of book I normally read but Sally Ride, the first female astronaut in space, we actually a teacher at my college. I took one of her intro classes just to have her as a teacher. She was a pioneer and a fascinating person. I am excited to learn more about her life and career.
#scandal by Sarah Ockler - This is one of the books I was most excited to get. I am a big fan of Ockler's books and can't wait to read this one.
Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson - I saw Matson last week at a book signing and she is just adorable and very funny. I think this is going to be a good one.
House of the Rising Sun by Kristen Painter - I featured this cover on the blog recently and promptly put in a pre-order for it. This cover is even prettier in person and I can't wait to read this one. You can't go wrong with vampires in New Orleans.
Midnight Thief by Livia Blackbourne - They had me at "assassin." :) I didn't know much about this book but was really impressed by Livia Blackbourne at the Ontario Teen Book Fest. This actually doesn't come out until July but Disney/Hyperion had early copies for sale at the event.
Kiss of Deception by Mary Pearson - Mary was kind enough to give me and ARC of Kiss of Deception at the Fest yesterday. I have only hear positive things about this book and plan to read it really soon.
As you can see, I have plenty to keep me busy. :) Now I just need to find some time to read all of these. Hope you have a most excellent Sunday!
