Stacking the Shelves (#10)


It's Saturday and so it's time for Stacking the Shelves!
Here is my haul from this week:

E-books



The Winner's Curse (The Winner's Trilogy, #1) by Marie Rutkoski

This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales

Both of these have been on my TBR list for quite some time now, so it was good to finally get them! Have you read these and if so, what are your opinions of them?
