Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and is all about sharing the books you are adding to your bookshelf, be it the physical one or your digital one!

     Well this is a bit late, but it is here. I will be working on Teaser Tuesday tonight so it's on time, tonight. I am going to try to be better about being on time, but I'm finding it harder and harder to keep up to date with work on the other site and being on night shift. It's just a lack of time and motivation as well. I want to update better though, I am working on it, just means that rolling out the visual (new template) may take me longer than what I thought.

     So without further adieu:

Let the Storm Break
Fault Line
Dorothy Must Die
Half Bad

Title: Goddesss
   Author: Josephine Angelini
   Format: Hardcover
   Release Date: May 28th, 2013

     After accidentally unleashing the gods from their captivity on Olympus, Helen must find a way to re-imprison them without starting a devastating war. But the gods are angry, and their thirst for blood already has a body count.

     To make matters worse, the Oracle reveals that a diabolical Tyrant is lurking among them, which drives a wedge between the once-solid group of friends. As the gods use the Scions against one another, Lucas’s life hangs in the balance. Still unsure whether she loves him or Orion, Helen is forced to make a terrifying decision, for war is coming to her shores.

     In Josephine Angelini’s compelling conclusion to the masterfully woven Starcrossed trilogy, a goddess must rise above it all to change a destiny that’s been written in the stars. With worlds built just as fast as they crumble, love and war collide in an all-out battle that will leave no question unanswered and no heart untouched.

     Then, with one brutal strike, Nina's normal is shattered; and she discovers that nothing that she believed about her life is true. But there's one boy who can help--and he just may hold the key to her past.

But Nina won't be anyone's stereotype.

Title: Let the Storm Break
   Author: Shannon Messenger
   Format: Hardback
   Release Date: March 4th, 2014

     Whirlwind romance and breathtaking action continues in the sequel to Let the Sky Fall, which Becca Fitzpatrick called “charged and romantic."

     Vane Weston is haunted. By the searing pull of his bond to Audra. By the lies he’s told to cover for her disappearance. By the treacherous winds that slip into his mind, trying to trap him in his worst nightmares. And as his enemies grow stronger, Vane doesn’t know how much longer he can last on his own.

     But Audra’s still running. From her past. From the Gales. Even from Vane, who she doesn’t believe she deserves. And the farther she flees, the more danger she finds. She possesses the secret power her enemy craves, and protecting it might be more than she can handle—especially when she discovers Raiden’s newest weapon.

     With the Gale Force weakened by recent attacks, and the power of four collapsing, Vane and Audra are forced to make a choice: keep trusting the failing winds, or turn to the people who’ve betrayed them before. But even if they survive the storms sent to destroy them, will they have anything left to hold on to?

     But that all changes after the party. The one Ben misses. The one Ani goes to alone.

     Now Ani isn’t the girl she used to be, and Ben can’t sort out the truth from the lies. What really happened, and who is to blame?

     Ben wants to help her, but she refuses to be helped. The more she pushes Ben away, the more he wonders if there’s anything he can do to save the girl he loves.

Title: Dorothy Must Die
   Author: Danielle Paige
   Format: Hardback
   Release Date: April 1st, 2014

     I didn't ask for any of this. I didn't ask to be some kind of hero.
But when your whole life gets swept up by a tornado—taking you with it—you have no choice but to go along, you know?

     Sure, I've read the books. I've seen the movies. I know the song about the rainbow and the happy little blue birds. But I never expected Oz to look like this. To be a place where Good Witches can't be trusted, Wicked Witches may just be the good guys, and winged monkeys can be executed for acts of rebellion. There's still the yellow brick road, though—but even that's crumbling.

     What happened?
     Dorothy. They say she found a way to come back to Oz. They say she seized power and the power went to her head. And now no one is safe.

     My name is Amy Gumm—and I'm the other girl from Kansas.
     I've been recruited by the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked.
     I've been trained to fight.
     And I have a mission:
     Remove the Tin Woodman's heart.
     Steal the Scarecrow's brain.
     Take the Lion's courage.
     Then and only then—Dorothy must die!
