Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks! It was created by Tynga’s review.

New World Rising by Jennifer Wilson

Worlds collide in debut author Jennifer Wilson’s graphic dystopian series where Divergent meets Mad Max.

Since witnessing her parents’ murders at the age of eleven, Phoenix’s only purpose in life has been to uphold her mother’s dying words – to be strong and survive. But surviving outside of The Walls – outside of The Sanctuary – is more like a drawn-out death sentence. A cruel and ruthless city, Tartarus is run by the Tribes whose motto is simple, “Join or die.”

Refusing to join and determined to live, Phoenix fights to survive in this savage world. But who can she trust, when no one can be trusted? Not even herself…

The first of a trilogy, New World Rising is an epic tale of survival, instinct, trauma, and the extraordinary power of human connection.

“Savage and raw, Jennifer Wilson pulls no punches in this blood tingling dystopian.” Kimberly Derting, award-winning author of The Pledge Trilogy

Rise of the Sea Witch by Stacey Rourke

Details of the sea witch’s banishment have been exaggerated. The body count that preempted it was not. Once an illustrious princess, her hands and tentacles were stained with the blood of thousands. No one could comprehend how the hooks of madness dragged her down from her life of privilege.

Born Princess Vanessa of Atlantica, the ambitious young royal was one of two children born to the great King Poseidon. She and her brother, Triton, were groomed from birth to rule. Yet only one would ascend that coveted throne. While carefree Triton flits through his training with a cavalier demeanor and beguiling charm, Vanessa’s hunger for her father’s acceptance drives her to push herself to the limits of magic, and combat to become a leader worthy of her people.

When war against the humans ravages their once regal kingdom, political sides are chosen. Factions from the seven seas challenge the existing leadership, pitting Vanessa against her brother in a vicious battle for the crown. Traitors are exposed, dark family secrets revealed, and a once strong sibling bond is strained to its breaking point.

Only when the ink black waters from the ultimate betrayal rescind, will the truth be known of how the villainous sea witch rose with one name on her vengeful lips–Triton.

Rencontre Virtuelle de Santino Hassel et Megan Erickson

Je comptais les mois jusqu’à la fin de mon déploiement, passant mes journées à travailler sur des véhicules militaires, et mes nuits à jouer à des jeux vidéo pour me distraire jusqu’à ce que je puisse oublier le sergent-chef Garrett Reid.

C’est à ce moment-là que je l’ai rencontré : Kai Bannon, un compagnon de jeu qui possédait une célèbre chaîne de streaming.

Je n’aurais jamais pensé devenir obsédé par quelqu’un, encore moins un ancien roval. Et je n’aurais jamais pensé qu’il pourrait me remarquer moi ; un gars connu pour sa brutale honnêteté et son air renfrogné. Je n’avais pas prévu que notre amitié en ligne pourrait se transformer en quelque chose qui me garderait éveillé la nuit ; d’heures de discussion en sessions coquines via webcams interposées.

Mais c’est arrivé. Et maintenant, je ne peux pas arrêter de penser à lui. Dans mon esprit, notre premier rendez-vous irl est parfait. Il m’embrasse, me ramène chez lui et c’est le début du grand amour. Sauf que, comme la plupart des choses dans ma vie, rien ne se passe pas comme prévu.
