Stacking the Shelves (65) + November & December Recap

Wednesday, January 4, 2017

So I figured I'll just make a single recap for both months since blog-wise, nothing happened. And you might not even read poor ol' November if I publish it in January. But hey, November was effin' awesome because it was my birthday month! Anyway, tons of books ahead because this is two months worth of hauls. Like I said, nothing on the blog side of things but was my film and TV series watching glorious as ever. AS EVER. November and December were all about binging, yo.

Finding X by Miles Tan

Tuesday, December 20, 2016

So as a STEM girl, I was pretty stoked to start this one because it has a geologist as a character, and one in grad school too. I'd take all the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) characters I can get. Sadly, my background in STEM kind of wrecked this one for me. Hahahuhu why can't I just suspend my disbelief?!?!?!

Forget Me Always by Sara Wolf

Tuesday, November 15, 2016

If you've been an avid reader of this blog (cookies for you if you are!), you might have known that Sara Wolf's Lovely Vicious series is my favorite contemporary YA series OF ALL TIME. I've mentioned it again and again and promoted the book loads of times and I will do so for eternity. I just love it so much.

So just imagine the glee I'm feeling today as I share to you an interview I had with the author herself, Sara Wolf!!!!!111 HOLD ME

But first, let me introduce the book to you and this series~ Here's my review of the first book! It has great MCs and banter and sass and sarcasm you'd chuckle all the way through and it also delves into sensitive topics. IT JUST HAS IT ALL SERIOUSLY

Forget Me Always
Title: Forget Me Always (Lovely Vicious #2)
Author: Sara Wolf
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Date of Publication: November 1, 2016
All warfare is deception. Even in high school.

It’s been three years, twenty-five weeks, and five days since Isis Blake fell in love, and if she has it her way, it’ll stretch into infinity. Since then, she’s punched Jack Hunter—her nemesis-turned-maybe-something-more—in the face, survived a brutal attack by her mom’s abusive ex thanks to Jack’s heroics, and then promptly forgotten all about him.

The one bright spot for Isis is Sophia, the ephemeral girl who shares Isis’s hospital stay as well as a murky past with Jack. But as Isis’s memories return, she finds it harder and harder to resist what she felt for Jack, and Jack finds it impossible to stay away from the only girl who’s ever melted the ice around his heart.

As the dark secrets surrounding Sophia emerge, Isis realizes Jack isn’t who she thought he was. He’s dangerous. But when Isis starts receiving terrifying emails from an anonymous source, that danger might be the only thing protecting her from something far more threatening.

Her past.

Our Chemical Hearts by Krystal Sutherland

Title: Our Chemical Hearts

John Green meets Rainbow Rowell in this irresistible story of first love, broken hearts, and the golden seams that put them back together again.

Henry Page has never been in love. He fancies himself a hopeless romantic, but the slo-mo, heart palpitating, can't-eat-can't-sleep kind of love that he's been hoping for just hasn't been in the cards for him—at least not yet. Instead, he's been happy to focus on his grades, on getting into a semi-decent college and finally becoming editor of his school newspaper. Then Grace Town walks into his first period class on the third Tuesday of senior year and he knows everything's about to change.

Grace isn't who Henry pictured as his dream girl—she walks with a cane, wears oversized boys' clothes, and rarely seems to shower. But when Grace and Henry are both chosen to edit the school paper, he quickly finds himself falling for her. It's obvious there's something broken about Grace, but it seems to make her even more beautiful to Henry, and he wants nothing more than to help her put the pieces back together again. And yet, this isn't your average story of boy meets girl. Krystal Sutherland's brilliant debut is equal parts wit and heartbreak, a potent reminder of the bittersweet bliss that is first love.
