Stacking the Shelves: June Haul

A weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews

So I would normally wait a week to do this but I think with ALA coming up (see yesterday's post) I want to do my monthly Staking the Shelves a little early. Plus technically it is the last Saturday of the month which is usually when I post this so I'm good.

Anyway, I actually did pretty good this month. I didn't go overboard in the books that I bought and I didn't get too many for review. I mean obviously ALA is going to mess that up completely but I could be a little more discerning this month because of that. Anyway, I still got some books I am super excited about.


Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab Add to Goodreads
I LOVED the first book in this series. It was amazing and dark and everything I wanted it to be and expect from a Victoria Schwab book. I'm excited for the sequel

Spectacle by Rachel Vincent - Add to Goodreads
I had this book for review but I still ended up buying the audiobook. I really liked the audio for the first book and I wanted to listen and read this one.

Stillhouse Lake by Rachel Caine - Add to Goodreads
I didn't actually buy this book. It was one of the Kindle First books for June and I only listed it because I wanted to talk about it and it's not really for review.

For Review

House of Ash by Hope Cook - Add to Goodreads
I've said it before and I'll say it again, I can smell a historical mystery a mile away. This one sounds really dark and interesting so I'm excited to give it a try.

The Witch Who Came in from the Cold by Many - Add to Goodreads
This was originally a serial but they are publishing it as a book and I'm excited to read it. It has some authors that I love and is a spy novel set in the Cold War era.

The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding by Alexandra Bracken - Add to Goodreads
I really love Alex's previous books and I am super excited to read her new middle grade. Plus it is about a boy who discovers a demon inside him which sounds so cool.

Ferocious by Paula Stokes - Add to Goodreads
I have not read the first book in this series but I have heard really good things about Paula Stokes and I feel like it's about time I read some of her books. This one totally sounds up my alley too.

Heroine Worship by Sarah Kuhn Add to Goodreads
I really liked the first book in this series so I'm excited to see where the sequel takes us. It's such a fun super hero story and I know there will be much more hijinx in the next book.

The Hearts We Sold by Emily Lloyd-Jones - Add to Goodreads
You had me at sold your soul to the devil. Plus I'm interested in Emily Lloyd George's series about superheroes so maybe I'll read this first and then go back to that one.

Those are the books that I got so far in June. What books did you get? Are you excited for any of these? Leave me a comment with your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY READING!


  1. I love Stokes. I just finished This is How it Happened, and I had read a few of her other books. She great at genre jumping, and always delivers an interesting story. I should be reading Ferocious within the next month, and I am pretty excited.
