Stacking the Shelves / Showcase Sunday #26

11 Aug 2013
Showcase Sunday is hosted by Vicky @Books, Biscuits, and Tea and Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews and they both give bloggers the opportunity to share the books they have received in the past week.

I got a lot less books than last week which is good as I am trying to reduce the size of my tbr pile. As usual if you click on the book cover you will be taken to its Amazon page.
 
Review

I received both of these books in paperback and I actually received two of each! I'm pretty sure that they were accidentally double sent as I received the books on Friday and then again on Saturday :P Starters is a book I have been intending to read for ages and The Eye Of Minds is an upcoming release that I am very excited for.

Thank you to Random House for both of these books.
  
 
NetGalley / Edelweiss

I received a few more books from NetGalley. All Of You is one I have been eagerly awaiting and the others just caught my eye.
 
 
 
Bought
 
 I love the Hidden Gem series by India Lee and this is one of several short stories that are releasing whilst fans of the series wait for the final book. I bought it as a short, cheap read.
 
 
Borrowed

A few months ago a bought TFIOS for my boyfriend as he loves John Green's vlog brothers videos. He read it this week and loved it so he has now given it to me to read I have heard amazing things about this book. 
  
 
So what do you think? Are there any books you have read or plan to read? Feel free to link to your Stacking the Shelves or equivalent post in the comments.

  1. I got sent Rule this week, it's not really my thing at all but there appears to have been a mass mail out of NA this week, so might give it a try.

  3. Wow, you have got a great haul. The Fault IN Our Stars left me with mixed emotions in all honesty and in the end I completely forgot to review it for my blog but it was definitely a very unique and emotional story that I have read of recent! Enjoy your haul, Laura! :)

  6. I enjoyed Rule more than I thought I would. But I liked Jet (book 2) even better. Also, The Fault in Our Stars is awesome! Great haul!

  10. We also got All of You this week! NetGalley is really raking in the new adult books, aren't they? I hope you enjoy TFiOS. I thought it was pretty amazing myself.
