Hey Guys, Happy Saturday! 🙂
I hope everyone had a wonderful week! Mine was great. I launched this blog, finally. YaY!!
This is my first Stacking the Shelves post, as you may have guessed already. So, let’s begin.
The Room on the Roof by Ruskin Bond
Goodreads Blurb: The Room on the Roof is Ruskin Bond’s masterpiece of adolescence, and coming of age. Written when the author was seventeen years old, it brilliantly describes the hopes and passions that capture young minds and hearts. A moving tale of love and friendship, this book has endured as Bond’s most beloved novel.
For a long time, I was thinking to start reading Ruskin Bond. Yes, this is true. I haven’t read much of him, just a few things in school days, that I probably don’t remember very well.
So I decided to start with his first book, The Room on the Roof, and yes I chose the prettiest edition of it (as I am a sucker for beautiful covers 😛 ).
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Goodreads Blurb: Cath and Wren are identical twins, and until recently they did absolutely everything together. Now they’re off to university and Wren’s decided she doesn’t want to be one half of a pair any more – she wants to dance, meet boys, go to parties and let loose. It’s not so easy for Cath. She would rather bury herself in the fanfiction she writes where there’s romance far more intense than anything she’s experienced in real life.
Now Cath has to decide whether she’s ready to open her heart to new people and new experiences, and she’s realizing that there’s more to learn about love than she ever thought possible …
A tale of fanfiction, family, and first love.
I finished by first ever Rainbow Rowell novel, Eleanor & Park, a few days back (review to come soon). SInce then, I am hooked by her writing style and immediately wanted to read another book by her. So, ordered this the other day 🙂
Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon
Goodreads Blurb: Madeline Whittier is allergic to the outside world. So allergic, in fact, that she has never left the house in all of her seventeen years. But when Olly moves in next door, and wants to talk to Maddie, tiny holes start to appear in the protective bubble her mother has built around her. Olly writes his IM address on a piece of paper, shows it at her window, and suddenly, a door opens. But does Maddie dare to step outside her comfort zone?
Everything, Everything is about the thrill and heartbreak that happens when we break out of our shell to do crazy, sometimes death-defying things for love.
I am thinking of reading this for a long time now, but it was always so costly or the alternate movie cover was available in the budget. I even checked the bookstores for it, but they also had the edition with movie cover (which I don’t like). So finally when it was available within my budget, I grabbed the chance 😀
Purchased Kindle Book
Goodreads Blurb: Travis King is the worst kind of a**hole.
He taunts me for being a good girl and mocks my high standards.
He’s cruel, crass, and has enough confidence to last two lifetimes.
And I hate him.
It wouldn’t matter so much if he were avoidable.
But considering he’s my older brother’s best friend and roommate, I see him more than I’d ever want to.
His sculpted abs and gorgeous eyes are wasted on such an arrogant man, which makes me hate him even more.
Even though I’ve had a crush on him since I was ten, the feelings weren’t mutual and he’s made that very clear.
He’s always loved getting under my skin and one night against my better judgment, I let him in my bed.
I’ve succumbed to his manw**re ways, but that doesn’t change a thing.
Because the King is about to get played at his own game–and lose.
Well, technically I didn’t purchase this one because it’s currently free on Amazon for Kindle. The latest book in the series has been released recently and there is a lot of buzz on social media about this. So I decided to look to it, and luckily the first book was free 😀 Can I ask for anything better?
Despite banning myself for using NetGalley for quite a few months, I finally gave in and collected a number of books, which I am not very proud of 🙁 But then, who doesn’t like free books? 😀 So following is my NetGalley haul. Each cover is linked to the corresponding Goodreads page.
That’s all for this week folks! Have you read any of these books before? What have you added recently to your shelves? Let me know in comments.
Leave me a link to your Stack, and I’ll check it out 🙂 I’ll be back soon with another Stacking the Shelves post.
