Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.

Thank you Hachette Australia, Allen & Unwin Australia, Scholastic Australia, PanMacmillan Australia, Bloomsbury Australia and Harlequin Teen Australia for sending me these review copies!

Thanks Hachette Australia
True Dark (True Trilogy #2) by Gary Meehan
I'm currently reading this book now and it's fabulous. I'm really enjoying this series, and I can't wait to see what happens in the rest of the book. Even though this series has some downfalls, it's a really great trilogy all up. I don't actually have much time to read at the moment, so I'm not very far into it, which is making it go really slow. Looks like I'm going to have to give the series the read it deserves and re-read these two when the final book comes out.

The Novice (Summoner #1) by Taran Matharu

To be honest, I haven't heard any good things about this book. I'm really disappointed because the cover is gorgeous, and it just really really makes you want to love the book because of it. I might give this book a go sometime, I'm not sure when exactly that will happen though....

Love May Fail by Matthew Quick

I'm not sure about this book, it's not YA so it's not a necessity for me to read it at the moment. I'll probably give this book to my mum to read first, and then post her thoughts in a mini-review. What do you all think? Oh, and I took a photo of one of our dogs just to rival the dog cute-ness on the front cover. 

Thanks Allen & Unwin Australia

To Hold the Bridge (Short Story Collection) by Garth Nix
I really really really want to get into Garth Nix books. I've now got all the Abhorsen series (but I've only read Sabriel and found it okay), so I really want to see what all the fuss is about. Garth Nix is pretty much a household name in Aus, which is why I really want to get on board.

Thanks Scholastic Australia

Thirst by Lizzie Wilcock
7 Days by Eve Ainsworth

I haven't heard of these two before, and to be honest, haven't really had a chance to read the blurbs either. However, these look like quick reads, so I might pick them up in between books one day. 

Thanks PanMacmillan Australia
Dream a Little Dream (Silver trilogy #1) by Kerstin Gier
I've only heard great things about Kerstin's Ruby Red trilogy, so I had to get my hands on this book. I'm hoping that this will make me fall in love with her writing, so that I become even more eager to read her other books. I'm actually really excited about this because of the premise and well. It looks like a really fascinating read and I'm not exactly sure what is going to happen. Oh, and the best thing about this is that it's a HARDBACK! Seriously, this is something rare in Aussie review copies, or in any released book here on our shelves.

Thanks Bloomsbury Australia
Cherry Blossom Dreams by Gwyneth Rees
Because You'll Never Meet Me by Leah Thomas
I'm not sure about Cherry Blossom Dreams, only because it looks like a middle-grade kind of book, or at least bordering MG and YA. I'll still read this one, but probably just leave it for a while until I feel like this sort of novel.
Such a cute cover!! It's really plain and simple, but it's brilliant. I'm curious about this one, and it sounds like one of those reads where the impossible is pretty much made possible, yet you find that you like it anyway. Can't wait to meet Ollie and Moritz!

Thanks Harlequin Teen Australia
Nowhere But Here (Thunder Road #1) by Katie McGarry
Is it a surprise to you all that I've finished this one already? Ok, probably not, because my review is already up (yes, I'm a few weeks late with this post), but that's not the point. The point is that this book is absolutely freaking amazing!!! Katie is fantastic and I really cannot wait to see what else she has planned for this series. You all must read this book, Oz will have you drooling. Oh, and because Katie is just that next level awesome, she sent me a ribbon bookmark, and normal bookmark! (Yes, I used the ribbon when reading this). 

A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses #1) by Sarah J. Maas
It might not come as a shock to you all that I've already got the Hardcover and Paperback versions of this book. I purchased the Hardcover as a pre-order so that I could get the amazing goodies (poorly) pictured: a temporary tattoo and a metal bookmark! This is a series that you all need to read immediately (it's Sarah J. Maas, what other excuse do you need?). It's a mature YA bordering on NA series, but it's got something (or someone) for everyone.
Read my review of A Court of Thorns and Roses.

Uninvited (Uninvited #1) by Sophie Jordan
I've got an ARC of the second book in this series, Unleashed, so I had to go ahead and buy myself a copy of the first book. I would have gone with hardback, but the ARC I have is in paperback so it needs to be the same size and match. I really enjoyed Sophie's Firelight trilogy (not that I got around to reading the last book), and I'm really really excited to start this new series. Her DNA says that she is a killer, or she will be one... What's not to love about that one sentence? Not to mention, I really love the covers to this series. The DNA hair strands just make it for me.
