Stacking the Shelves (5)

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews which is about showing off new additions to your bookshelf.

Sarah's Haul
Beyond the River (The Young Underground #2) by Robert Elmer

Finally!!! I have been trying to get this book for years! I found the other 7 at our library booksale and have been looking there and at used bookstores ever since but couldn't find it. I finally broke down and bought it online for a really good price (For the most part I hate buying things online). My mom read this series to us when we were kids and I loved it. I'm looking forward to finally rereading the series.

Christina's Haul  
 Silver Shadows (Bloodlines #5) by Richelle Mead

I went to Walmart at 6:30 am on its release day to pick it up, but it wasn’t there. I finally managed to get it after 4:00 pm but by that time I was exhausted and sunburned and starting to get a headache. I managed to read two chapters before I went to sleep for 13 hours. Then I woke up at 6 am the next morning and read until I finished it at noon. I didn't read it on the day it was released, but I read it as soon as I could. I'll be posting my review for it on Monday.
I thought the cover looked pretty generic when I saw it on the net, but then I saw it in person. It is absolutely gorgeous! Sydney and Adrian are on the cover and the background is silver and it glows when the light reflects off of it. It is definitely my favorite cover thus far.

  1. I hope you ladies enjoy what you got this week! I've never heard of the Young Underground series. And I really need to get around to reading Richelle Meads books.

    1. Thanks! The Young Underground is a children's series from the 90's so it's pretty old.
      Richelle Mead's books are so good but they took me forever to get into as well. Christina had to really push me but now I love them.

    1. Truthfully, I don't remember. It's probably been well over a decade since I read it last. I just remember loving the series.... So I'm hopeful for the reread.lol
