Stacking the Shelves #119

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.

Books I added to my shelf this week:


Ten Thousand Skies Above You
(Firebird #2)
Claudia Gray

Ever since she used the Firebird, her parents' invention, to cross into alternate dimensions, Marguerite has caught the attention of enemies who will do anything to force her into helping them dominate the multiverse—even hurting the people she loves. She resists until her boyfriend, Paul, is attacked and his consciousness scattered across multiple dimensions. 

Marguerite has no choice but to search for each splinter of Paul’s soul. The hunt sends her racing through a war-torn San Francisco, the criminal underworld of New York City, and a glittering Paris where another Marguerite hides a shocking secret. Each world brings Marguerite one step closer to rescuing Paul. But with each trial she faces, she begins to question the destiny she thought they shared. 

The second book in the Firebird trilogy, Ten Thousand Skies Above You features Claudia Gray’s lush, romantic language and smart, exciting action, and will have readers clamoring for the next book.

I've had the first in this series sitting on my shelf for a while.
Now that I have the second, I'm a little more motivated to bump them both up my TBR list.



Third Degree
Julie Cross

I used to be “Isabel Jenkins, child prodigy.” As lame as that sounds, at least it was an identity. But now I’m not sure what I am. I just failed the most important exam of my life—the emotional readiness test required to get into a medical residency program—and it turns out my parents can’t stand each other. Now I’m trying to figure out how to pick up the pieces of my life, and that means re-enrolling as a college freshman, but this time I’m shutting the books and majoring in being eighteen.

But so far, my roommate hates me and I’m not into the party scene. The only good thing about school has been getting to know my insanely hot RA. Marshall Collins makes me wonder about everything I missed while I was growing up too fast. Pretty soon we’re hanging out constantly, but for the first time, I find myself wanting more than a no-strings-attached physical relationship. And the lesson I really need is one Marsh definitely can’t teach me: love. Because I’m going to be alone forever if I don’t learn fast.

So... what did you add to your shelf this week?
I'd really like to know.

  2. I forgot that Ten Thousand Skies Above You was out this week. I still need to read the first book, but I'm more likely to do so now that the second is out. Enjoy your new books!

  6. I really want to read Ten Thousand Skies! Hope you enjoy.

  7. Nice haul, Marilyn. Your comment on how having #2 would move #1 up in priority made me smile. :) And I don't think Katie and Daemon should be allowed to be on anyone else's covers but I do like the sound of Third Degree. I'm going to check out that one. :)
    I hope you're having a wonderful week!

  8. I haven't started this new series of Claudia Gray's... maybe one day!
    Enjoy both your reads!
