Stacking the Shelves

I found a gift card in my old wallet for Books-A-Million, so I had to use it. I know it might possibly break my book buying ban a little bit I didn't use my own money except on one of them, which was what I said I would do. The rest were technically money from my birthday I didn't know I had on a gift card.

Jack and Yani was my purchase for this paycheck.

Attachments was won from a give-a-way I won by Nikki Godwin :)

By: Tahereh Mafi


I have a curse.
I have a gift.

I'm a monster.
I'm more than human.

My touch is lethal.
My touch is power.

I am their weapon.
I will fight back.

No one knows why Juliette's touch is fatal, but The Reestablishment has plans for her. Plans to use her as a weapon. But Juliette has plans of her own. After a lifetime without freedom, she's finally discovering a strength to fight back for the very first time—and to find a future with the one boy she thought she'd lost forever.

it's almost
time for war.

Juliette has escaped to Omega Point. It is a place for people like her—people with gifts—and it is also the headquarters of the rebel resistance.

She's finally free from The Reestablishment, free from their plan to use her as a weapon, and free to love Adam. But Juliette will never be free from her lethal touch.

Or from Warner, who wants Juliette more than she ever thought possible.




17449197Unhinged
By: A.G. Howard


Alyssa Gardner has been down the rabbit hole and faced the bandersnatch. She saved the life of Jeb, the guy she loves, and escaped the machinations of the disturbingly seductive Morpheus and the vindictive Queen Red. Now all she has to do is graduate high school and make it through prom so she can attend the prestigious art school in London she's always dreamed of.

That would be easier without her mother, freshly released from an asylum, acting overly protective and suspicious. And it would be much simpler if the mysterious Morpheus didn’t show up for school one day to tempt her with another dangerous quest in the dark, challenging Wonderland—where she (partly) belongs.

As prom and graduation creep closer, Alyssa juggles Morpheus’s unsettling presence in her real world with trying to tell Jeb the truth about a past he’s forgotten. Glimpses of Wonderland start to bleed through her art and into her world in very disturbing ways, and Morpheus warns that Queen Red won’t be far behind.

If Alyssa stays in the human realm, she could endanger Jeb, her parents, and everyone she loves. But if she steps through the rabbit hole again, she'll face a deadly battle that could cost more than just her head.




12716010Rapture
By: Lauren Kate


The sky is dark with wings . . . .

Like sand in an hourglass, time is running out for Luce and Daniel. To stop Lucifer from erasing the past they must find the place where the angels fell to earth. Dark forces are after them, and Daniel doesn’t know if he can do this—live only to lose Luce again and again.

Yet together they will face an epic battle that will end with lifeless bodies . . . and angel dust. Great sacrifices are made. Hearts are destroyed. And suddenly Luce knows what must happen.

For she was meant to be with someone other than Daniel. The curse they’ve borne has always and only been about her—and the love she cast aside. The choice she makes now will be the only one that truly matters.

In the fight for Luce, who will win?




17300167Jack and Yani Love Harry Potter
By: Mary E. Twomey


Best friends Jack and Yani do everything together. After Yani's thirtieth birthday party, however, she decides to leave town on a spontaneous vacation to visit all the sites of the young adult fiction novels she loves, hoping that when she returns, she'll have buried the secret flame she has for Jack. 

Forced by his friends to go on a road trip to track down Yani, Jack learns a lot about his best friend by reading the novels she's been obsessed with. From vampire hunting in Forks to searching for wizards in Florida, Jack confronts his greatest fears -that he just might love Harry Potter...and perhaps, Yani.






8909152Attachments
By: Rainbow Rowell

"Hi, I'm the guy who reads your e-mail, and also, I love you . . . " 

Beth Fremont and Jennifer Scribner-Snyder know that somebody is monitoring their work e-mail. (Everybody in the newsroom knows. It's company policy.) But they can't quite bring themselves to take it seriously. They go on sending each other endless and endlessly hilarious e-mails, discussing every aspect of their personal lives.

Meanwhile, Lincoln O'Neill can't believe this is his job now- reading other people's e-mail. When he applied to be "internet security officer," he pictured himself building firewalls and crushing hackers- not writing up a report every time a sports reporter forwards a dirty joke.

When Lincoln comes across Beth's and Jennifer's messages, he knows he should turn them in. But he can't help being entertained-and captivated-by their stories.

By the time Lincoln realizes he's falling for Beth, it's way too late to introduce himself.

What would he say . . . ?




That's all I got this week!
What all did you guys get??

  2. Ooh nice! I got Shatter Me myself this week in the old hardcover format! Funny that you wanted yours to match cause I decided I'd like the old cover a bit more. We'll see if I change my mind as well after I read it! But when I could get the hardcover for $4 instead of the $10 paperback, it also made the decision much easier!! I don't normally shop at BAM since they're further away and there's only one in my city, but I had a giftcard to finish up as well, but I must say I LOVE their bargain section! There were soooooo many YA titles in there. Most I had and some were ones I didn't care for already, but I was still amazed at all the options!

    Hope you enjoy your reads once you get to them!

    Here's my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. I got my copy for BAM a few months ago too! I think it was $3.99 for my copy!! I just like all my covers to match so I figured it was a good way to share the love and have a give away for my readers :) I love BAM's bargain section too. I have 4 different BAM's around me and they all have a different selection of bargains, so I am always driving to the different ones. I'm hooked!

    1. I've only seen Jack and Yani once but after reading about it, I had to have it. I'm only a few chapters in, but it is still good so far! Attachments should be read sometime next month, unless there is a miracle and I can shove it in somewhere this month!

  4. I haven't heard of Jack and Yani love Harry Potter - that sounds like a read I'd enjoy. Gah! I want Unhinged so badly!! I've recently bought Fangirl and Eleanor & Park, so Attachments is next on my list. I haven't had a chance to read them yet, but I am so excited to! I like the covers for Shatter Me and Unravel Me above the best. Are they the old covers? Enjoy your awesome haul! :D

    1. The covers above are the new covers, the old cover is all silver with a girl on the front of it. I still need to get Fangirl but I have the other two books! I just found out about Jack and Yani but it sounded so cute and my type of read that I had to have it immediately.

  5. I really want to read "Attachments" but I haven't had the opportunity. I loved "Fangirl" though. Happy reading!
