Stacking the Shelves!

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews

This week for review I got... 

Emmeline knows she’s not supposed to explore the woods outside her settlement. The enemy that wiped out half her people lurks there, attacking at night and keeping them isolated in an unfamiliar land with merciless winters. Living with the shame of her grandmother’s insubordination, Emmeline has learned to keep her head down and her quick tongue silent.

When the settlement leader asks for her hand in marriage, it’s an opportunity for Emmeline to wash the family slate clean—even if she has eyes for another. But before she’s forced into an impossible decision, her dreams urge her into the woods, where she uncovers a path she can’t help but follow. The trail leads to a secret that someone in the village will kill to protect. Her grandmother followed the same path and paid the price. If Emmeline isn’t careful, she will be next.



It’s 5:00 a.m. on Fifth Avenue, and 16-year-old Gemma Beasley is standing in front of Tiffany & Co. wearing the perfect black dress with her coffee in hand—just like Holly Golightly. As the cofounder of a successful Tumblr blog—Oh Yeah Audrey!—devoted to all things Audrey Hepburn, Gemma has traveled to New York in order to meet up with her fellow bloggers for the first time. She has meticulously planned out a 24-hour adventure in homage to Breakfast at Tiffany’s; however, her plans are derailed when a glamorous boy sweeps in and offers her the New York experience she’s always dreamed of. Gemma soon learns who her true friends are and that, sometimes, no matter where you go, you just end up finding yourself.Filled with hip and sparkling prose, Oh Yeah, Audrey! is as much a story of friendship as it is a love letter to New York, Audrey Hepburn, and the character she made famous: Holly Golightly.

I am so excited about these two titles! I adore Audrey Hepburn. I own every movie she was ever in, and I mean EVERY MOVIE. She was in a single scene in Always released in the early 90's and I have it on DVD. The obsession runs deep. 

Winterkill looks fantastic because I can definitely see a Village twist in there (maybe...probably not...) but if there is, you read it here first! 

Both of them are courtesy of Amulet and NetGalley and to whom I am forever grateful. 

This week in a nut shell...

This week I posted a Let's Talk! Discussion about TBR piles. This post needs some comment love - I still need to know your TBR pile secrets!

I participated in Top Ten Tuesday where we see an abundance of cat pictures and Doctor Who.

My Waiting on Wednesday can be found here. See it before it vanishes...

My review for Boomerang was posted on Thursday, and it was quite great. If you're interested in New Adult - this book is for you.
