Stacking the Shelves (#11)


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

❄ E-books 



Looking for Alaska by John Green
Cinder (Lunar Chronicles, #1) by Marissa Meyer

❄ Paperbacks 



Origin (Lux, #4) by Jennifer L. Armentrout



I'm almost embarrassed that I haven't read Cinder and Looking for Alaska, and I've been meaning to read Origin for ages because the situation where the whole story was left off was so shocking! But yay, finally I have these goodies!

  1. Nice stack, Sofia. I haven't read either of these books, but all of them are on my TBR. I hope you'll enjoy them!

    Have a great weekend.

  2. Wrong title for this post?! :P Haha, I just read Cinder a few days ago, so I was really late as well. But I'm glad I finally picked it up, because it was really good. Happy reading! :)

    1. Haha, yes! :D Thanks for letting me know, I'm such an air head sometimes (this wasn't the first time I wrote a wrong title..). I'm glad you liked Cinder - I hope I'll love it as well. :)

      Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Ooooh! I love John Green's books and I liked Looking for Alaska. It was a nice read. And Cinder is absolutely amazing! And of course Origin is also fantastic. You got some really great books! All favorites of mine. =D

    Happy Reading!

    1. I've read only TFIOS and Paper Towns by John Green so I'm really looking forward to reading other books by him. :) I just started Cinder and I already love it (if that's possible). Thanks for stopping by. :)

  5. It took me awhile to read Cinder and Scarlet too. I read them before Cress came out and then never read Cress, Haha I guess I'm going to read it before the 4th book comes out.

    I only read the first Lux book. Then I stopped for some unknown reason. Should I continue?

    1. Haha, that happens to me as well with series - first I binge read the first few and then leave the series alone for some time. :)

      I think you should continue with Lux if you liked the first book. The concept definitely stays the same but there's more romance and action. I'm glad that I continued with it. :)

      Thanks for stopping by!

    1. I already love Cinder, and I just keep asking myself why haven't I read this earlier?? :D Thanks for stopping by!

  8. I really want to read both Looking For Alaska and Cinder - I really didn't like Looking For Alaska when I first read it and I couldn't get into Cinder but I think my opinion may change if I read them again.

    1. Oh, that's a shame. But sometimes that just happens - I always so weird when I haven't liked a book that the majority have seemed to love. Sometimes you can't end up loving every book you read. :) Thanks for stopping by!

  9. Cinder was really good. I enjoyed it a lot. Anything by JLA Is awesome. Enjoy your new books.

    1. I'm currently reading Cinder and it seems so freaking awesome!! I have a strong feeling I'm reading a book that might become one of my favourites.. Lux by JLA is one my favourite series even though the other ones she has written aren't my absolute favourites. :)

      Thanks for stopping by!

  10. Ooh, awesome haul! Cinder has been on my TBr for the longest times, but I still haven't picked it up yet. Origin is also on my TBR, but I find it hard to go back to the series because I've waited for it for so long!

    1. Oh, please pick Cinder up! So far (only a few chapters...) it has been so great and there's so much potential. :) I have the same thing with series - I really liked the first three books but it has been ages since I read the third one so it's a bit of job to start reading the fourth. Even though I'm sure that after I've finished Origin, I'm all "why didn't I pick this up earlier??"

      Thanks for stopping by! :)

  11. Great haul! I started the Lux series a little while ago and have only just ordered books 3 & 4, hoping to get them and start reading them soon. Cinder has been on my TBR list for so long now, I should really start that series soon. I hope you enjoy your books :) My STS.

  13. Don't feel bad, as I haven't read any of John Green's books yet. Hope you enjoy Cinder as much as I did! Happy reading!

    1. Haha, I won't - sometimes I wish I was a quicker reader so I could catch up more efficiently with all the books that people have seemed to love. :) Thanks for stopping by!

  14. Looking for Alaska was brilliant, I'd say it was probably his quirkier book out of all his releases. Alaska is one of those characters that's one out of the box. Can't wait to see what you think of it.

    I'm probably one of only a handful of people who didn't like Cinder. I honestly just couldn't get into it. Most people seem to really love it, so I'll definitely give it another go eventually. Great haul <3

    1. Good thing then that I wanted to have it. ;) I can't wait to read it now! That sometimes happens to me too as well: I don't end up liking a book that majority has seemed to love. But of course you can't like everything, so it's all good. :)

  15. Awesome book haul! I absolutely love Looking for Alaska, it's definitely my favorite book by John Green. I thought it was even better than The Fault in Our Stars. Cinder is really good too. :b I hope you enjoy everything!

  18. I hope you like Looking for Alaska. That's my favorite John Green book - so simple, yet profound at the same time, depending on who's reading it.

  20. Despite owning the eBook, paperback and audiobook, I still haven't read Looking for Alaska. I hope that t makes you feel better! ;) One of these days I'll actually get around to finally reading it.

  21. I haven't read Cinder yet either, and a friend got me to read Alaska and I found it sad but very average, mostly because I hated Alaska... I hope you enjoy these though!

    1. Cinder so far really great, I'm pretty sure you'd like it too. :) Sorry about Alaska though! It seems such a good read. Thanks for stopping by!

  22. Haha, don't be! I haven't yet either... I own Cinder (and all the other John Green's except Looking For Alaska, but I swear, I haven't recovered from TFiOS yet. So I'm not even going there, haha.) :)

    Here's mine

    1. Haha, I'm glad I'm not the only one then! :D I'm not the best at catching up with series. And yeah TFIOS really had an impact on me as well. I still haven't been able to reread it. Maybe before the movie comes out? Thanks for stopping by!
