Stacking The Shelves #23 I Don't Think I Bought THAT many. Right?

Image
Stacking The Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews. Where you can post all the books that you're adding to your shelves each week. Inspired by TST IMMs' posts.


*************

I've been saving.
A LOT.
To buy some books via book depo since the bookstores here apparently don't love me as much as I thought they did.

But then I remembered, wait a minute... I haven't visited a bookstore in like 2 or 3 months... So maybe there's this slim chance that they have something new. Though I seriously didn't get my hopes THAT high.

I visited one of the 2 that exist here, and that bookstore is kind of famous for bringing new tittles from time to time but I also know them as the ones with the WORST PRICING CHOICE EVER... If a book's supposed to be (as said on the back of said book) lets say, $8.99 I'm all for them raising it a bit higher... let's say... $11.00 or something... But nope, these guys think I'm an idiot or something... I won't go ahead and bu…

With rebel leader Darian free at last, the humans and outsiders on Ixeos must find a way to join forces and defeat the Firsts. The problem? All slaves are tracked with GPS, the Firsts are the only ones with power, and roving gangs hate the rebels just as much as they hate the aliens. As Darian and the outsiders from Earth travel the globe through the mysterious tunnels in Paris, they learn that the Firsts are preparing to launch another wave of biological warfare. With a transporter that will allow the aliens to target any city, anywhere on the planet, the rebels know they must stop them at all costs.
As things get more dangerous on Ixeos, the outsiders find that they’re pushed to their limit. Will they fight…

Goodreads Shortie:

Following the unexpected death of her father, 18-year-old Layken is forced to be the rock for both her mother and younger brother. Outwardly, she appears resilient and tenacious, but inwardly, she's losing hope.
My thoughts 
If I could write pretty things... With pretty words... With pretty grammar... With pretty spelling... With pretty thoughts... With pretty smiles... With pretty tears... With pretty sads... With pretty happys... With pretty everything...
I would.
For this book... For the autor of this book. For the characters in this book and for all the people who made it possible.

When I started this book I never thought I would like it as much as I did. I focused solely on the fact that a favorite author of mine recommended it and that was it.

But now. My life has been, once again, turned, moved, affected, changed, rocked, shaked by the power of words.

I can't possibly comprehend at this moment what it must be like to actually have a broken heart. If it hu…
