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.

Word and Breath by Susannah Noel

The Last Temptation of Clarence Odbody by John Jughead Pierson

Hollowland by Amanda Hocking

Glimpse by Stacey Wallace Benefiel

Another week of very little purchases. All the books I got were free! Word and Breath is a dystopian novel with a very interesting premise.

Riana’s sister has been kidnapped and someone is trying to kill her so she’s forced to turn to her ex-lover, the leader of a rebel movement. She also ends up needing the help of the Soul Breather, someone who can taste her spirit with a touch. Except someone sent him after her to begin with so can she really trust him?

A very intriguing book. The Last Temptation of Clarence Odbody is  whimsical book. Basically it asks the question, what if George Bailey hadn’t been saved by is guardian angel? It’s a reimagining of It’s a Wonderful Life, which is one of my favorite movies. I watch it every year during the holidays. I plan on reading this book around Christmas time.

Hollowland is a zombie book. It promises to be a good zombie book for what it’s worth. Glimpse is about Zellie Wells who has a crush on a boy and when she touches him she has a vision of his death with herself alongside him. She learns that she must never be with him or her vision will come true. But of course the two of them wish to be together!

Those are the books I got. They all look pretty good to me. Even the zombie book! I’m trying not to spend too much money on books these days so you might be seeing me spend less on books and start reviewing more Indie books in the future.

See you next week for more Stacking the Shelves!
