Stacking the Shelves: Three-Day Weekend Reading List Haul

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly Saturday book meme from Tynga's Reviews, all about sharing the books you've added to your shelves over the course of the week.

Two weeks into school and beginning to get settled down into the monotony of everyday university life... sounds like the perfect time for a three day weekend, right? There's plenty of time to do all of that and more, thankfully, including taking a glance at some of the new titles my bookshelf earned this past week. It's a brief one - one title per day in the extended weekend, actually - but I'm excited about all of them. 

FOR MY KINDLE


The Maze Runner, by James Dashner
A popular title on sale, and highly recommended by a friend whose excitement for the upcoming movie is beginning to near a mania level, I just had to have it.

The Diviners, by Libba Bray
I was obsessed for years with her A Great and Terrible Beauty series, and this one is set in the 1920s and has witches, so it was really only a matter of time, really...

FOR REVIEW


The Divorce Papers, Susan Rieger (publish date: March 18th, 2014)

This is definitely a case of something-I-didn't-know-I-wanted-until-I-had-it for me.

Anyone can tell a story about a couple getting divorced - especially in this day and age - and only slightly fewer can write that story convincingly from the viewpoint of the lawyer handling one side of that case, but to tell it exclusively in memos, letters, emails, court documents, and other forms of non-narrating paper, is a brave, brave move, and one I'm excited to explore.





So, that's what I got this week. How about you?
