Stacking the Shelves (8)

I know it's kind of strange to be doing a haul so soon after the BEA '14 book haul post. But I got a few review books, borrowed a couple of books from my friends and some of the books I'd ordered came in. So, I decided I could totally make another video out of it!

For Review
Starry Night by Isabel Gillies (Thanks Ksenia & Macmillan!)
Brunette Ambition by Lea Michele (Thanks Gianna & Penguin Random House!)

Borrowed from Friends
Love and Other Foreign Words by Erin McCahan (Thanks Ellice!)
There Will Come a Time by Carrie Arcos (Thanks Rachel!)
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor (Thanks Rachel!)
Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor (Thanks Rachel!)
Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor (Thanks Rachel!)

Saving Francesca by Melina Marchetta
The Art of Lainey by Paula Stokes (an Estelle recommendation!)
Wish You Were Italian by Kristin Rae

YOUR TURN - What books did you pick up this week? Have you read any of the ones I mentioned or are you interested in reading them?


  1. Ahh so many fabulous books! I read WE WERE LIARS by e lockhart this week and it was great. :)


  2. Eep Alexa, awesome haul!
    Daughter of Smoke and Bone is so good - but very dark!
    I LOVE MELINA MARCHETTA <3 I own all her books and I've read all her contemporaries, they're my favs of all time! I hope you enjoy meeting Francesca and her friends.
    The Art of Lainey is a really cute and enjoyable read, perfect for summer.

    Also yay I finally get to hear your voice! I love it and it's actually how I imagine it would be - very calming.

    Happy reading~

  3. Looking forward to your review of Love and Other Words! Been only seeing it around recently but I'm quite intrigued by it :)

    Eep yay for more Melina Marchetta! Happy reading Alexa <3

  4. Alexa, it is SO okay that you have more books after BEA! I'm really excited for you to pick up THERE WILL COME A TIME, I've heard such great things! And maybe I should join in on the DoSaB read a long.... Anyway, happy reading, Alexa! Keep up the fabulous vlogging :)

  5. Great book this week! Starry Nights looks so lovely and romantic! :D I really need to pick up a Melina Marchetta book---I know I've been missing out!

  6. EEEEE LAINEY! I adore Lainey. It's the cutest. Hope you love all your books! The final cover of Starry Nights is insanely beautiful. Oooo, the undressed DoSaB books are beautiful! I don't adore the actual covers, but man, those spines are pretttty.

  7. Ooooooooh, I'm planning to read Dreams of Gods & Monsters this month so we can squeal over the ending together :). I loved the first two and I hope you do too!

  8. A great book haul so soon after BEA! I absolutely ADORE Saving Francesca (and anything Marchetta writes), so I can't wait to see what you think! You've gotta read The Piper's Son afterwards, since it's a companion novel of sorts set a few years later. It's my favorite book of hers after Jellicoe Road. :)
    Haven't read Daughter of Smoke and Bone either but hope to remedy that this year!
    Happy reading, lady!


Thanks for leaving a comment! I love seeing what you have to say, and will try to reply (here or on Twitter) as soon as I can :)
