Stacking the Shelves #8

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews.

Happy weekend everyone! Hope you all got some lovely books this week. :D Here's what I got.

  • Forever Mine by Elizabeth Reyes. To feed my obsession with YA indie contemporary novels. I actually cannot get enough of them right now! 
  • Pride and Popularity by Jenn James. Don't know much about this one but I can never pass by a P&P related book. I hope it's good! 
  • Easy by Tammara Webber. Have you guys seen the hype surrounding this one?! It was only published recently and the reviews are flying in. I'm intrigued! 
  • Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire. This one is a bit controversial but I'm really curious, it has so many good reviews too so here goes nothing!  
  • Meant to Be by Lauren Morrill. I was bouncing with excitement when I got approved for this on Netgalley! It better live up to my expectations. 
  • The Vincent Brothers by Abbi Glines. YES!!!!!!!!!
  • Between The Lines by Tammara Webber. This looks like my kind of thing and Tammara Webber's books are so popular right now!
  • Lonely Souls by Karice Bolton. For a blog tour in July. Very excited!
That's it for me this week. I know I haven't had as many reviews as usual up the last few weeks. I've been scheduling stuff ahead. I should be caught up soon though! Looking forward to seeing what you all got!


  1. So many lovely books :D ! I haven't read of heard anything about any of these books but I love the cover for Lonely Souls !
    I hope you'll like these books.
    Happy reading - Bonne lecture !

  2. Wow ! That's an awesome haul ! :D
    Easy was fantastic ! :D I really hope you end up enjoying it. :)
    All these books look absolutely fabulous ! I hope you enjoy all of them.
    You're really lucky you got approved for Meant To Be. I thought Random House didn't approve books for readers outside US.

    Happy reading, Nicola. :D

  3. I love Pride and Prejudice retellings, too and Pride and Popularity actually looks really good! I've also heard great things about Meant to Be, as well! I hope you enjoy!

  4. Amazing haul of book this week! I got Meant to Be too! :) I can't wait to read it. I'm dying to read Easy! I've heard amazing things. I own The Vincent Brothers and Beautiful Disaster, but haven't read them yet. I haven't heard of Between the Lines and Lonely Souls but they look amazing!

  7. Wow Nicola that's a load of great books!
    I LOVED Beautiful Disaster & I have Easy DL'd to read, also heard great things. I read the first Moreno brothers but didn't love it, I may need to revisit them again though.
    Also I enjoyed Vincent Boy's but Beau was my favorite so I don't know if I like Brothers...let me know how you go with it :)
    Happy reading...the weather is perfect for it LOL

  8. Awesome books! I actually haven't heard of many of these, so I'm glad to be able to put some of these on my TBR pile.

    Happy reading!

  18. OMG, You got a lot of books this week. They all seem pretty good. Have fun reading.

  19. I forgot about Meant to Be! Must.. resist... requesting it...

    lol. I don't want to request anymore until I'm all caught up with my NG books. I guess that's motivation.

    Great Haul, hon!

  20. Beautiful Disaster is one of my favorite. Can't wait to see your review and what you think about the book. Happy Reading

  21. I jumped up and down about Meant to Be too! I can't wait to see what you think of Beautiful Disaster, I think it's an either love it or hate it book (I loved). Hope you end up loving The Vincent Brothers as much as I did and oh gosh, Easy!! I think that one is my favorite of the year so far. Awesome haul Nicola! :)

  22. Ooh. All of those books look amazing!! Can I please just steal your shelves for this week? You wouldn't mind would you? I mean, would you even notice that all those pretty and amazing books were missing? Of course NOT!


    Seriously though, enjoy all of those reads, they sound fantastic and I am only mildly jealous…

  26. So jealous you got Meant To Be! I have been waiting for this book for aaaaaaaaaaages! I thought they weren't approving people outside the US anymore...? Enjoy!

    1. Someone told me they were approving again so I gave it a go and got approved! They declined me for two other titles though. It's confusing!

  27. Lonely Souls sounds good, as for all the others. I hope you enjoy all your books :D

    Here is my weekly round up post.

  28. I am dying to read Meant To Be, they declined me twice now. I got approved on Edelweiss but somehow couldn't download it. Oh well, I will survive. Hopefully.

    I am also looking forward to reading Easy, The Vincent Brothers and Beautiful Disaster.

    Here's my Book Haul post.

    1. Me too! I must be out of the loop.

      ALSO I would totally bounce around the room if I got to read Meant to be Early! It is awesome that you get to.

  30. Oh, man, so you liked the Vincent Boys, too? And you're this excited about The Vincent Brothers? Peer pressure is killing me! As much as I always try to avoid vanillas, there are some I just can't... or don't want to, really.
    Happy reading, Nicola. You have so many lovely books there.

  31. So many great books. Am excited to see some I haven't heard of before, but they sound awesome! Pride & Popularity sounds right up my alley, as I love all things P&P! Happy reading!
