Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted byTyngaReviews.com and is a book haul post to show off everything you purchased or received for review.

Vessel by Sarah Durst

Inhale by Kendall Grey

Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff

Incarnation by Emma Cornwall

What’s Left of Me by Kat Zhang

A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving

Like I said on Monday, I saw Vessel on Amazon and I had to get it. I haven’t had a chance to read it yet like I thought I would. The Blinding Knife is over 600 pages! It’s taking me all week to read it.

I found Inhale on a blog that I can’t remember. I should have written down the blog, but I’m really bad about things like that. I really liked the review and I read a bit of the sample and I enjoyed it. I think it has whales. I thought that was pretty cool.

Stormdancer was just released this week and I’ve been waiting for it for months. It has an Asian tilt to it. Being from Hawaii with so many Asian influences, not to mention also being of Asian descent that has me really excited. The book also has griffins! I love griffins. I remember reading about them in Mercedes Lackey’s books.

Another book that was released this week is Incarnation. It’s a steampunk vampire book. The premise is very intriguing. If you follow the Amazon link I gave up above, you can read all about it. Basically it’s about a vampire who seeks out the author of Bram Stoke’s Dracula.

The last book that was released this week is What’s Left of Me. The premise is definitely fresh with two souls residing in one body. I can’t wait to read this one.

The last book I got is A Prayer for Owen Meany. It was on sale and I had to get it. It’s my favorite John Irving book and I’ve read it many times. I plan to read it many more in the future.

This was a great book haul week and I feel very blessed. I have many hours of great reading in store for me! Have a great week and I’ll see you next time for Stacking the Shelves!

I’ll be interested to see what you think of ‘Incarnation’! I’m getting sort of tired of vampires (and I used to really, really love them) but a steampunk vampire has definite possibilities.

Yeah, I got really burned out on vampires too. I’m slowly going back to them.
