New Books On My Shelf #49

New Books On My Shelf is the new label for my former In My Mailbox posts to differentiate myself from the whole The Story Siren controversy. Here are the books I got in the past two or so weeks.

Hourglass by Myra McEntire

The Selection by Kiera Cass (read and liked it)

City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare (I'm currently reading COLS and I'm soo happy I found a copy in my local bookstore!!)

Insurgent by Veronica Roth (read it and it blew me away!!)


Taking Chances by Loni Flowers (Thank you Loni for the birthday presents! This is probably the best gift you could have sent me. I mean, your own book, how awesome is that?! x)

The Lover's Dictionary by David Levithan

Did you get any new books this week? Please leave links in the comments to your  posts!


  1. Awwwwwesome haul! I kinda like everything you've got there, so I can only wish you a happy (late?) birthday and happy reading!
    Here's my book haul this week

    1. A very very late birthday, thank you;)My birthday is in February, but the package took ages to get here from the US.

  2. "Taking Chances" looks good, need to check it out.

    Happy Reading!

  3. You've got some really great books there! Of course COLS and Insurgent!!! And Hourglass!
    Lol, The Lover's Dictionary is on my reading pile, too! :)

    Enjoy your new books

  4. I also got Hourglass this week and I LOVED it! So I really hope you enjoy that one too! I have been looking forward to The Selection also, so I am glad to hear that you liked it. Great book haul this week and kudos to you for starting your own feature. I wanted to find another to link up with but I had trouble deciding, I never thought to create my own!

    City of Lost Souls T_T
    I want to read Hourglass!!
    And I just read Divergent for the first time last week...that book took almost a year to come here...but don't panic! At least it came...whereas others don't even squint my way...say like...all the other books you got!
    T_T I want the lover's dictionary T__________T
    and LOVE The Selection cover!
    Happy Reading!!

    Here's the new books I got this week, feel free to stalk,

    1. City of Lost Souls is really good so far!:)

  6. OMG, I want to read virtually ALL those books! Ever since I heard about Hourglass and The Selection I've wanted to read them and, of course, I've been waiting for Insurgent and City Of Lost Souls for what seems like FOREVER!
    Happy reading - you have some awesome books to enjoy! :)

  7. I'm glad to hear you liked The Selection. i'm looking forward to reading that book! And Eeeep! CITY OF LOST SOULS!! I can't wait for my copy to arrive. :D

    1. Only 1 more day until COLS comes out!!YAY

  8. I'm really not sure about The Selection. It sounds so good, but apparently one of the protagonists or so does something crappy.. And I'm sooo vengeful, I'll probably rip the book apart or something like that. XD

    OOOH, COLS! I refused to watch the book-trailer until today. DAMN, now I really want to read it. This. Instant.

    How do you like it so far?

  9. I seriously can't wait to read The City of Lost Souls, it's going to be amazing! :)

  10. Ooooo you got some great ones this week! I really enjoyed The Selection, and I can't wait to get my hands on Jace and Clary again! Glad to know you loved Insurgent, I'm hoping to get to that one this week!

  11. Ooooohh I too bought Insurgent! :) Now I just need to get to it. ;) Also, The Selection? Omigosh I'm SO looking forward to that one! I hope it's good. It's coming in for me at the library really soon!

  12. Yaaaay, Hourglass! I see you are preparing to read Timepiece *--* I have to buy it soon, too. And wow, The Selection is really pretty! I think I'd buy the book just because of its cover. But the summary made it sound awesome, so I'm waiting for your review to see what you thought of it :)

    Sheeesh, I REALLY need to buy David Levithan's works. They seem so cute and sweet.

    Have an amazing week, Sarah! <3

  13. I really want to read The Selection. I think it looks really good. I hope you enjoy.
