Stacking the Shelves #25

header_stacking-the-shelvesWelcome to another Saturday filled with Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. The last couple of weeks have been slow in regards to buying books or having money to do so but I did get some eBooks. Check em’ out!

dividerJet by Jay Crownover: I bought this book right after I finished Rule (the first but it isn’t a series). I absolutely adored Jet and Ayden’s story; there was some slow parts within the book and not as dramatic or steamy like Rule’s but still a fantastic follow up novel.

Rome by Jay CrownoverRome by Jay Crownover: This is the third book in the “Marked Men” Series about Rule’s brother Rome who comes home from his last tour of the war. I feel like this book will be much more “angry” and emotional because what has happened in the past books regarding Rome. Can’t wait to start it!

Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James: I know I know – WHY wouldn’t I buy this BUT I wanted to do a re-read of the series due to the constant movie updates. I really did like this series even though it shocked the book world in some ways. I did have this series in paperback but let someone borrow it and only got the third book back. SO I decided to buy the series again in eBook format: cheaper and I can’t let people borrow it.

Shattered Ties by K.A. Robinson: This novel was suggested to me by Kobo Inc. in an email and I thought I would check it out. It reminds me of Breathe by Abbi Glines so I thought for the discounted price I got it for I would give it a try. Good girl meets bad boy not from around her world. They can’t resist each other either. Should make for a great romance book!Be With Me J. Lynn

Be With Me by J. Lynn (Jennifer L. Armentrout): I repurchased this book on my Kobo ARC and was SO excited when it downloaded on Tuesday this past week. It is the third book in the Wait for You series but the second official one (there is a .5 novel in-between). This book follows Teresa Hamilton (Cam’s sister) and Cam’s friend Jase; they shared a truly amazing, mind-blowing, change-your-life kiss and are now thrown together more and more as Teresa is at their university even though they shouldn’t be. I am so PUMPED for this book (might start it tomorrow actually !!)

Scintillate by Tracy Clark: I received an e-copy of this book for review. The story takes place in breath taking Ireland about Cora and her mother’s disappearance, her father’s overbearing protectiveness and Finn, a dashing Irish boy. Scintillate is the first book in this lush and exciting new trilogy, full of romance, adventure and metaphysical mystery.

Such Sweet Sorrow by Jenny TroutSuch Sweet Sorrowby Jenny Trout: Throw in Hamlet and Romeo on one mission: rescuing Juliet. Two Shakespearean tales thrown together, in the underworld to find Juliet; one is there for true love and one is there for adventure. I really am excited about this book; its far too unique not to be intrigued and Hamlet and Romeo together in one novel should create a very witty, smart and down right funny dialogue.

Knight Assassin by Rima Jean: Seventeen-year-old Zayn has special powers she cannot control—powers that others fear and covet. Powers that cause the Templar Knights to burn Zayn’s mother at the stake for witchcraft. When a mysterious stranger tempts Zayn to become the first female member of the heretical Assassins, the chance to seek her revenge lures her in. Assassins – check; Templars – check; revenge – check; and forbidden romance – check! This book has everything I adore and more!

About Jackie

I am a mid 20 university graduate in English Language and Literature & History, who is addicted to tea, obsesses over books, swoons over fictional characters and has a passion for blogging. I love to devour anything Young Adult, and New Adult but also indulge in those steamy romances whenever I can! I review honestly and from the heart. Books are my passion.
