Stacking the Shelves #96 & Weekly Wrap-Up

Stacking The Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s ReviewsIt 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.

This week, I added the following books to my shelf.

Wanted by You
(Love in the City #1)
by Steph Nuss 

Carter was captivated by Ellyson Evans the moment he laid eyes on her, but she was the one girl who didn't beg for his attention. 

He wanted her. 

Ellyson vowed to never fall in love, because love can destroy you, but then she met Carter Jennings. 

She wanted him. 

Unwilling to risk their comfortable friendship, neither confessed their desires. 

Losing touch after college, a chance meeting reconnects them. 

They want each other. 

But love in the city is never quite that easy.

Last To Know
(Willow Creek #1)
Micalea Smeltzer

He was just a boy. 
And I was just a girl. 
But if that’s all there was to the story it wouldn’t be very interesting, would it? 

Up and coming band Willow Creek is back in their hometown for the summer. For the drummer, Maddox Wade, this summer was meant for writing music and playing gigs. 

Falling in love was not part of the plan. 

One look at Emma Burke and those plans cease to matter. 

Emma is quiet and guarded. She’s still hurt from her father walking out two years ago. She doesn’t want to trust Maddox, but with his dark hair, smoldering good looks, and infectious smile he’s impossible to resist. 

Together Maddox and Emma embark on an unforgettable summer of adventures and first love. 
Everything is perfect…or so Emma thinks. 

There are things she doesn’t know, and when she finds out the truth it might shatter everything she’s built with Maddox. 

No one said love was easy, and for Maddox and Emma it just might be impossible. 

This is a Young Adult book. The following books in the series will be New Adult. 

*This book is a standalone within a series.

I saw both of these books featured on blogs last week and couldn't stop myself from one-clicking them.
The second is a standalone, and since I have so many series to finish, that kind of appealed to me.

Weekly Wrap-Up

Last week I had several days without the Internet. I hate when that happens but at least I got some reading done. I spent the last few days catching up on my posts and preparing ahead - two weeks - that's good for me. Hope you are all having a good weekend!


  1. I'm so glad I'm not the only one with a one-click problem, Marilyn! I hope you'll enjoy your new books, they both look very good, and I love the pink cover of Wanted by You.
    Have a wonderful weekend and happy reading!

  11. I have Wanted by You on my shelf, Marilyn. :) And I just added Last to Know to my tbr. :) It being a stand-alone IS appealing.

    You're right, it's awful when we don't have internet. But I'm glad you were able to get caught up. I'm behind this week having had 2 band field trips and trying to get end-of-year band/orchestra things done since I'm going to be out-of-town when their banquet occurs.

    Anyway, I'm catching up here. :) I hope you've had a great week!

  12. Wowza that's so sad you went without internet but great that you got so much reading done! Sadly internet isn't my problem it's just school lol. Glad you had a great week and I will be waiting on your reviews for the amazing looking books you got.
