Stacking The Shelves #17 - Bought, Borrowed & Bagged #1

Saturday, August 13, 2016

Stacking The Shelves is hosted by Tynga´s Reviews and 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!





With today´s post, I will also join in Bought, Borrowed & Bagged in an homage of Barron´s Books & Baubles from Karen Marie Moning´s smash hit series, Fever, hosted by Braine at Talk Supe and combine those two memes from now on.

Well, I haven´t bought any books the past week, but I got some reviewer´s copies. Some of them I already posted in my last STS, two I am posting now.
Geneva Lee´s Royal Saga has turned out to be a great saga I loved reading and Crown Me is the conclusion of Clara and Alexander´s love story.

The Last One is the first novel by Alexandra Oliva. A book that was published in the US and Germany at the same time.



Reviewer´s copy









As the world tried to tear us apart, Alexander fought for me, claiming me as his own. I belong to him – body, heart and soul. I found strength in his dominance. In his control. In his love. Still I could always feel it: the darkness creeping toward your joy, threatening to overcome us. But I never imagined it would end like this. I thought I knew what marrying Alexander meant to my life. To my independence. To us. I was wrong.





She wanted an adventure. She never imagined it would go this far.
It begins with a reality TV show. Twelve contestants are sent into the woods to face challenges that will test the limits of their endurance. While they are out there, something terrible happens – but how widespread is the destruction, and has it occurred naturally or is it man-made? Cut off from society, the contestants know nothing of it. When one of them – a young woman the show´s producer call Zoo – stumbles across the devastation, she can imagine only that it is part of the game. Alone and disoriented, Zoo is heavy with doubt regarding the life – and husband – she left behind, but she refuses to quit. Staggering countless miles across unfamiliar territory, Zoo must summon all her survival skills – and learn new ones as she goes. But as her emotional and physical reserves dwindle, she grasps that the real world might have been altered in terrifying ways –and her ability to parse the charade will be either her triumph or her undoing.

  1. Nice haul, Vi :) I haven't read any Geneva Lee yet, but I think I'd enjoy her stories.
    Have a wonderful weekend and happy reading.

    1. Hi Lexxie, thanks for stopping by. I loved the Royal Saga though the second book was in my opinion the best.
      Have a great weekend yourself :-)
