Stacking the Shelves - New Books This Week!

Stacking The Shelves is hosted at Tynga's Reviews.

Books for Review

Pretty Thing by Jennifer Nadel:  A coming of age story with a dark twist.  Set in the summer of 1976. Soundtracked to the music of David Bowie.

Under My Skin by James Dawson: Teen Horror from James Dawson. Pink edition - YAY!  I've just started reading this one and so far it's a lot of fun. Loving Satanville.

This is Not a Love Story by Keren David. This is a book about boys and girls and damaged hearts. Set in Amsterdam. Really looking forward to reading this. Keren David superfan Arianne will be reviewing in May. 


Books for Review from Netgalley

Burnt Paper Sky by Gilly Macmillan
Dream a Little Dream (The Silver Trilogy #1) by Kerstin Gier
The Duff (Movie tie-in edition) by Kody Keplinger
The Pocket Wife by Susan Crawford

--a nice mix of psychological thrillers and YA fiction. I have been wanting to read The Duff for ages! ( loved a Midsummer's Nightmare)  I haven't started on a new YA series in a while (because I never seem to finish them!) but I couldn't resist Dream a Little Dream. Awesome blurb featuring very strange dreams and dark magic rituals. Love that cover too!

Available on Edelweiss


Juliet Townsend is used to losing. Back in high school, she lost every track team race to her best friend, Madeleine Bell. Ten years later, she’s still running behind, stuck in a dead-end job cleaning rooms at the Mid-Night Inn, a one-star motel that attracts only the cheap or the desperate. But what life won’t provide, Juliet takes.

Then one night, Maddy checks in. Well-dressed, flashing a huge diamond ring, and as beautiful as ever, Maddy has it all. By the next morning, though, Juliet is no longer jealous of Maddy—she’s the chief suspect in her murder.

To protect herself, Juliet investigates the circumstances of her friend’s death. But what she learns about Maddy’s life might cost Juliet everything she didn’t realize she had.



  1. I still haven't read The Duff. My friend saw the movie and thought it was really good (though a little different than the book).

  6. I absolutely loved The Duff, I read it earlier this year in preparation for the movie release and I have to say its my favourite by Keplinger yet! So I really hope that you enjoy it! Also how great does Little Pretty Things sound? I am definitely intrigued! Thanks for putting it on my radar! :)

  7. I really like the cover for Little Pretty Things, the blurb also sounds awesome. Nice Haul this week.

  12. I agree - Dream a Little Dream sounds really good!

  13. Yes! I need to read the book before I see the movie - that's my rule!

  14. Glad to hear you loved The Duff. I loved A Midsummer's Nightmare when I read it a couple months back and I'be been wanting to read The Duff ever since then. Little Pretty Things is on Edelweiss!

  15. Dream a Little Dream looks great!

  16. I loved The Duff!! I hope you enjoy that one (although I haven't seen the movie yet, but I have a serious suspicion it's going to be different. XD) And I just saw Dream a Little Dream on netgalley and omg, I'm soo intrigued. I'm going to look that one up on Goodreads now. xD

    Thanks for stopping by @ Paper Fury!

  17. You have some great looking books this week. I've just finished Under My Skin and I really liked it :)

    My haul

  18. Nice haul! I've read and seen The DUFF, both were great and not to similar so you can enjoy both without having to have seen the other

  19. I bought a copy of Duff a few weeks ago (and then snagged it from NG so I had a Kindle copy, too), but haven't read it yet. It looks really good and I hope to get to it soon. Great haul!

  20. Love that synopsis for Little Pretty Things. And I love forward to your thoughts on The Duff, I've seen a lot of mixed reviews so it will be good to get your opinion.
