Stacking the Shelves: January 2016

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews

It's the end of the month. What really? NO! But that means it's time for my January Stacking the Shelves and book haul. I am still on a book buying ban but I did buy a few more books this month. There are some exciting new releases so I had to, you know. And plus it's a book buying diet and these books are like salad. Plus I got some really great review books that I'm excited about. More than usually this month because I'm a Netgalley stalker and I grabbed a few that were Read Now. So here are the books.


1.) Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys - (Add to Goodreads)
This was a post Christmas pre-book buying ban present to myself. The paperback was super cheap.

2.) Passenger by Alexandra Bracken - (Add to Goodreads / My Review)
I pre-orded this one because i was so excited to finish this trilogy. It was amazing.

3.) The Love That Split the World by Emily Henry - (Add to Goodreads)
I have heard nothing but good things about this book so I went out on a limb and bought it.

4.) The Bands of Mourning by Brandon Sanderson - (Add to Goodreads / My Review)
Obviously this book was amazing. It's the next book in the Mistborn series and Brandon Sanderson wrote it.

For Review

4.) Into the Dim by Janet B. Taylor - (Add to Goodreads)
Thanks HMH! I saw this as Read Now on Netgalley and I grabbed it. It's a debut I'm excited about and it fits this month's theme of time travel so I'm already reading it.

5.) The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner - (Add to Goodreads)
Thanks Random House! This is a YA contemporary and I'm slightly worried because people are saying it's sad but on Monday I mentioned breaking out of my comfort zone. 

6.) The Darkest Corners by Kara Thomas - (Add to Goodreads)
Double thanks Random House! I'm so pumped for this debut. Guy's it's YA mystery/thriller set in Western PA where I live. Cannot wait!

7.) The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Heilig - (Add to Goodreads)
Thanks Hot Key! I also grabbed this when the UK version was Read Now on Netgalley. It's one of my top most anticipated debuts so I'm super pumped!

8.) All the Missing Girls by Megan Miranda - (Add to Goodreads)
Thanks Simon and Schuster! This sounds like a really unique mystery and you know me, I'm always looking for those.

9.) Tell the Wind and Fire by Sarah Rees Brennan - (Add to Goodreads)
Thanks HMH! Another one I grabbed when it was Read Now on Netgalley. I've been wanting to read some of this authors work and this one sounds like an interesting retelling.


10.) Dissonance by Ericka O'Rourke - (Add to Goodreads).
11.) Winterspell by Claire Legrand - (Add to Goodreads)
My OTSP Secret Sister for this round absolutely out did herself with this final package. Not only because of these books (one I can't wait to read, and one I'm excited to own) but also because of the time turner necklace (which I am obsessed with), all the owl stuff, the map, toys for my cat. but most especially, her reveal! It was this amazing Guess Who style game with participants of the program. It was so fun! Thanks Henny! You were a great SS and I'm going to miss getting your packages. But I'm glad we got to meet through this and will continue to chat.
So those are all the books I got this month. Thank you so much to the amazing publishers who approved my request on Netgalley and Edelweiss as well as my Secret Sister. What books did you get this month? Leave me a comment with your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY READING!
