Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature co-hosted by Tynga's Reviews and Reading Reality. It is a chance to showcase all the goodies you've collected throughout the week, whether they're bought on-line or in-store, an ARC or a final copy, borrowed from a friend or the library, physical or digital, etc.
Ooo I've read all three of these and they are all wonderful! Clap When You Land is a very heavy read though so make sure to keep that in mindReplyDelete
I loved both of the Acevdeo books but ended up DNF-ing You Should See Me in a Crown. I just could not get into it and the main character and her circle of friends kind of fell flat for me. The Poet X is still my fave Acevedo I think, but I loved these two all the same!Delete
I hope you enjoy them! I’ve heard good things about all of these books.ReplyDelete
Aj @ Read All The Things!
I ended up loving two and DNF-ing one. I was kind of surprised by the DNK (Johnson's book) because so many said I would love it based on the other authors and type of YA I have been reading. Even so, it is a book that has worked for tons of others so I would still encourage people to read it.Delete
It would appear that you have some pleasurable reading ahead of you.ReplyDelete
Quite! I loved both of Acevedo's books. I DNF-ed the other, but I know there are so many who loved it that I would still encourage others to read it.Delete
I really need to get round to You Should See Me in A Crown. So many books, so little time... I feel like I've said this before. Enjoy! :DReplyDelete
My STS/weekly roundup post.
Ain't that the truth! I am also sad to say this, but I ended up DNF-ing Crown! I loved both of Acevedo's books but Crown just did not work for me. I do hope you get to it soon though, we can chat about it!Delete
A much more normal (and sensible) TWO for me this week:ReplyDelete
Back to Battle by Max Hennessy
Eighty Days - Nellie Bly and Elizabeth Bisland's History Making Race Around the World by Matthew Goodman
MUCH MORE SENSIBLE! I think I have Eighty Days on my TBR, so thank goodness because your stacks last week were overwhelming! lolDelete
Yeah, sorry about last week! I was just so pleased that my fave 'odd' bookshop was surviving that I wanted to help out [grin] so ended up buying 15 books from him! 'Eighty Days' looks like SO much fun. I'll be picking up Neillie's own book about the trip too at some point. She sounds like quite a girl!! There's also a LONG bibliography so..... and the 19th Century is my 2nd favourite so.... [lol]Delete
It is good to hear that businesses are surviving, and you really had no choice but to contribute! I checked my TBR and do have this one on my list. I also have "The Complete Works of Nellie Bly: Ten Days in a Mad-House, Around the World in Seventy-Two Days and More" and a YA non-fiction one called Ten Days a Madwoman that I read a while back.Delete
All good picks from the look of it. Happy weekend!ReplyDelete
Can't go wrong with Acevedo. I have loved all of her books that I have read so far. Couldn't get into Crown, but lots of people loved it.Delete
Nice haul! I need to read that author.ReplyDelete
I got two in this week:
Unseen City by Amy Shearn from The Nervous Breakdown Bookclub.
The Keepers of the House by Shirley Anne Grau, the 1965 Pulitzer Prize winner, bought as an ebook from Nook.
Elizabeth Acevedo is really wonderful, I have loved all of her books that I have read so far. I could not get into Johnson's book though, not quite sure why. Even so, you may like it. I am definitely in the minority on my opinion.Delete
i'm rummaging through the files, looking for next week's post: lots of candidates but i haven't found the right one yet... and the beat goes on...ReplyDelete
Oh I am sure you will find something good!Delete
Eek! You finally got hold of, With the Fire on High. I hope you like it! I am on the wait list for the other two books.ReplyDelete
I LOVED IT! Well, mostly I loved it. I wanted to backhand Pretty Leslie. Clap When You Land though, wow. I ended up DNF-ing Crown, and I am kind of bummed that it did not work for me because so many people loved it.Delete
