[Stacking the Shelves] - #60

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!

     So I am not sure if this is coming out on time or not. I have scheduled it and I hope it does. I am a bit preoccupied reading and playing games for the moment, aside working. The light is slowing coming into view on when I will actually be moved back to days and get to read and post more frequently. I will also be very glad to get the job I was hired for back, but in the mean time I am still looking for something in print media and ultimately allows me to do what I enjoy.

     Also with BEA 2014 wrapped up or wrapping up, I hope to see some great images (on twitter or well anywhere) and see what I missed in the book-sphere. Further we have the Opening weekend this week for "The Fault in Our Stars" which I will be going to and watching (maybe not opening night but still). I hope to get a good review out by early next week or on Sunday, not sure. Either way I have high hopes for the movie and the stars in it.

     So without further adieu:

Take Me On
City of Heavenly Fire
The Lost Code
Before You Go

A strange underwater vision, even stranger wounds on Owen’s neck, and a cryptic warning from the enchanting lifeguard Lilly hint at a mystery that will take Owen deep beneath Lake Eden and even deeper into the past. What he discovers could give him the chance to save the tattered planet. But first, Owen will have to escape Camp Eden alive…
