Stacking the Shelves #19

Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga's Review

From the Library:

Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein
While flying an Allied fighter plane from Paris to England, American ATA pilot and amateur poet, Rose Justice, is captured by the Nazis and sent to Ravensbruck, the notorious women's concentration camp. Trapped in horrific circumstances, Rose finds hope in the impossible through the loyalty, bravery, and friendship of her fellow prisoners. But will that be enough to endure the fate that's in store for her?

The Seven Year King by Kiki Hamilton
It is the seventh year - the time when the UnSeelie Court must pay a tithe to Seelie royalty to remain a separate entity. Sacrificed at midnight on Samhain, the UnSeelies call their offering the Seven Year King. This time, Donegal plans to sacrifice someone Tiki loves. To make matters worse, Fiona disappears, Johnny lies near death, and the threat of the liche comes closer. Tiki's only hope is that she and Rieker can find an ancient faerie treasure and outsmart the Winter King before the turning of the seasons.

"Who Could That Be at This Hour?" by Lemony Snicket
The adventure began in a fading town. Far from anyone he knew or trusted, a young Lemony Snicket started an apprenticeship for a secret organization shrouded in mystery and secrecy. He asked questions that shouldn't have been on his mind. Now he has written an account that should not be published, that shouldn't be read. Not even by you.

The Silver Door by Emily Rodda
Rye is willing to risk everything to save his brothers, lost in the terrifying world beyond the Wall of Weld. Sonia is determined to find and destroy the Enemy who is sending the ferocious flying beasts called skimmers to ravage the city. The companions barely escaped with their lives during their first thrilling adventure beyond the Golden Door. But they won't give up.


The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still.

Liesel Meminger is a foster girl living outside of Munich, who scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can't resist - books. With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, she learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement.

  3. First of all, I'm kind of flailing at how adorable your blog is!! :)

    Second, yay for all of your books! I still need to read Elizabeth Wein's books and start the Faerie Ring series! I especially love their covers. :) Happy reading!!

    1. Aw, thanks. :) I have my sister to thank for the beautiful blog banner; she's an amazing artist!

      Elizabeth Wein's books are amazing. CODE NAME VERITY took me a little while to get into because of the narration style, but once I did, I fell in love. THE FAERIE RING series definitely improves as it goes along, so if you find yourself frustrated with the first book, persevere! :)

  4. I've heard amazing things about Rose Under Fire. I should definitely try one of Elizabeth Wein's books soon.
    Enjoy your reads this week! :)
