Stacking the Shelves (8)

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews, in which I showcase books that I have received this week.

This week I bought:

The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa
A Hunger Like No Other by Kresley Cole
Lonely Souls by Karice Bolton
I love special offers! There was a 2 for £3 offer in my local branch of The Works and I picked up The Immortal Rules and A Hunger Like No Other!
I had to get The Immortal Rules as soon as I saw it was part of the offer since I know how much quite a few people love Julie Kagawa’s work and I decided to see what it’s all about! So far, from the reviews that I’ve read, I’m expecting awesome!
I had a bit of a mis-goof with A Hunger Like No Other (I think). I tend not to buy books from a series in The Works unless I know what order the series is in. I picked up the book not knowing what order it comes in, so I checked in the front of the book and it says that it’s the first one and then I bought it. When I was on the Goodreads page, it says that it’s the second in the series. I’m a wee bit confused now.
I haven’t read many witch books but I do love free ebooks, so when I saw an ad for Lonely Souls over on The Bookish Brunette, I just had to check out the synopsis and download a copy onto my Kindle (I’m obsessed with my new Kindle). I don’t think I’ve read any books about witches at all so I hope I’m in for a surprise!
 
What did you get this week? Leave me a link and I’ll pop by!

    I loved The Immortal Rules. I use Fantastic Fiction to check out series order but usually not until after I bought a book. The Karice Bolton book sounds interesting but I have already added 6 books to my Kindle from other posts on this meme. I refuse to go look at the synopsis.

    You can check out my new books posts at Ms. Martin Teaches Media and Inside of a Dog. Happy reading!

    The immortal rules is an awesome book. It was one of my favorite from 2012 and it's a great new angle on vampires. I hope you're going to love it! Happy reading 🙂

    The works is just great for offers isn't it? I got the whole iron Fey series from there last week! Anyway, I have the Immortal Rules but I haven't read it yet, I look forward to your review!

    Happy Reading!

    I love Julie Kagawa, but I may be the only one who didn't like the Immortal Rules. I hope you have better luck with! The other two look really great 🙂 Nice haul!

    2 for 3 pounds? That's amazing!
    I still need to pick up The Immortal Rules – someone sent me a copy a few months ago but I didn't have time to read it 🙁
