Stacking the Shelves (#16)


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

❄ NetGalley 


Branded (Sinners #1) by Abi Ketner & Missy Kalicicki
Nihal of the Land of the Wind (Chronicles of the Overworld #1) by Licia Troisi


Yay - my request for Nihal of the Land of the Wind got accepted! I'm currently reading it and even though I'm enjoying it, I have to admit that I thought it would have a little bit darker tone to it (which I would have preferred over the middle grade vibe). Nevertheless, it's an interesting fantasy book with lots of magic and high fantasy species.

  1. Ooo I really want to read Branded. I think I've read the first the chapter and I really enjoyed it.

    1. It was pretty interesting with a really intriguing story, but I have to say that I was expecting a bit more from it. :/ I don't know, maybe I just wasn't mood for it or something.

  2. I really liked Branded when I first read it, (haven't read it since the redesign and everything else) though I did find some bits a little cheesy, but still, I enjoyed it. Though, my taste in books has changed since then too. Happy reading! :)

    1. I definitely found it a bit cheesy myself as well - everything in the conversations was so over the top that I didn't really find it that realistic. It was an okay read, though. :)
