Stacking the Shelves (#2)

Stacking the Shelves is a book blog meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews where book bloggers post about the new books they have acquired throughout the week either digitally or hard copy. It can be books that you have borrowed from a friend, got at a library, purchased online or in a store, etc!



Here are the books I have acquired this week!

Borrowed from Library


Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

I decided to try out more realistic fiction/contemporary fiction novels after reading & loving The Fault in Our Stars. The author of TFiOS, John Green, even recommended this book himself, so I'm going to try it out. Plus, it occurs in the 1980's! I love the 80's even though it was before my time.


Pulse by Patrick Carman

The cover. People say never judge a book by it's cover, but I'm judging. In a good way. Oh my goodness. It reminds of the Divergent covers with a central image in the sky above a city. Let's hope the story itself is just as amazing as the cover!


Across the Universe by Beth Revis

I've been meaning to read this book for awhile & it will probably be the next book that I read after I finish the current book that I'm on! The story sounds so unique and original. Plus the cover is very stunning!


If you read any of these, please be considerate and do not post any spoilers in the comments!!! Thanks!!

  2. I've been trying to read more contemporary YA too (I read a lot of dystopian/sci-fi stuff) and I've heard great things about Eleanor & Park. I haven't heard of Pulse, but it sounds really good, love teenagers with powers! And Across the Universe, I absolutely loved it! Have fun reading! ~Pam

  6. Nice haul! You said John Green recommended Eleanor & Park? Guess what just got added to my TBR pile... The cover of Pulse does kind of remind me of Divergent/Insurgent. I thought Across the Universe was a great read. I hope you enjoy your books! :)
