Stacking the Shelves: No. 1

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Review.  Here are the books I acquired this week.

Paladin by Sally Slater:  I’m in the mood for some Mulan-esque action: cross-dressing shennanigans & female warrior.  This book has been getting good reviews, Kindle had it for less than $3, so it’s a no-brainer purchase.

The Martian by Andy Weir:  I was attracted mainly by the pretty cover and the glowing reviews about how great the research was for this book.  Since reading it, I also found out that it’s going to be a movie starring Matt Damon (!!!) later on this year!  Review to come.

Throne of Glass & Crown of Midnight by Sarah J Maas:  I’ve tried reading Throne of Glass in the past, but it never managed to grip my attention.  Since reading ACOTAR, I’ve wanted to try this series again.  I picked up the first two books hoping that I will love them!

Have you guys read any of these books? Did you enjoy them?

    1. I’m so happy there’s a movie, I kept thinking throughout the book that this would make for an epic viewing experience. Plus, Matt Damon ❤ <3!

      Thanks Krystianna, wishing you a great & bookish week as well 🙂

    1. I DNF’d Throne of Glass when it first came out… but it’s the crazy popularity that you mention which made me want to try read it again. A million fangirls can’t be wrong… right?

      Thanks for commenting Sandy 🙂

  1. Sounds like a great haul! I have only recently gotten into the blogosphere, and have been hearing a lot about Throne of Glass. Will be keen to see what you think of it!

    1. Thanks for commenting Siobhan. I admit to finding parts of Thrones of Glass hard to read because Caelena is totally not the awesome assassin she’s made out to be… I will read the 2nd book as well before I make a judgment, though 🙂
