Stacking the Shelves #128

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:

(Ignited #1)
Desni Dantone

Seventeen year old Kris Young is on the run from a throng of superhuman golden-eyed freaks hell-bent on seeing her dead, and she doesn't know why. Good thing she has her guardian angel to protect her...sort of.

Kris is aided by Nathan, the mysterious man that ends up being anything but angelic when he rescues her for the fourth time in fourteen years. Even if the handsome hero illusion is shattered by his harsh treatment of her, he knows how to fight this strange enemy and is determined to keep her safe at all costs. 

As the body count rises in their wake, Nathan introduces Kris to a world in which not everyone is human and the battle lines between good and evil are clearly drawn. Kris's piece in the puzzle is something neither is aware of and, as they uncover the truth, neither is prepared for what they find. Overcoming twists and revelations that shatter both of their lives, they discover that nothing is as it seems and nothing, least of all their hearts, are safe. 

From debut author, Desni Dantone, Ignited is the first novel in a tale of first love, mystery and adventure that will introduce you to an exciting new world as Kris discovers how she fits in it.

Romeo and Juliet

Why Romeo and Juliet?

I picked this book up for two reasons.
1. My son has to read it for his English class this year.
2. I read it when I was his age and am curious to see if I understand Shakespeare's writing better now that I'm older.

So... what goodies did you add to your shelf this week?
Please leave a comment and a link below.


  1. OOh nice! The first is totally new to me! And I remember reading Romeo and Juliet in high school. Never really understood his language all that well! Hope you enjoy all the new reads!

  3. Romeo & Juliet is actually one of the few Shakespeares I never read. I really should since I do typically enjoy his work. Happy reading!

  4. Ooh, Ignited looks really good, Marilyn. My two younger kiddos have been reading Romeo & Juliet for English's not one of my favorite Shakespearean plays but it's a nice introduction to the bard. ;) They get to read Othello later this semester and I'm excited about that. Othello is one of my favorites! :D

  5. I haven't read Romeo & Juliet, believe it or not. I did watch the movie with Leo in it! I loved that!
    I hope you enjoy Ignited!!
