Stacking the Shelves

Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. It is hosted by Tynga's Reviews. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!
I am sorry, I have been seriously slacking lately. I started a new job and the overtime is killing me. I haven't had time for much of anything else. By the time the weekend comes I could pretty much sleep it away. I am hoping this gets better as our staff numbers increase! Until then I am doing what I can to keep up with my posts.


Goodreads Summary:
Enter a hidden world of magic, mystery, danger and romance in this YA fantasy from Amazon bestselling author, Rachel Morgan...

Protecting humans from dangerous magical creatures is all in a day’s work for a faerie training to be a guardian. Seventeen-year-old Violet Fairdale knows this better than anyone—she’s about to become the best guardian the Guild has seen in years. That is, until a cute human boy who can somehow see through her faerie glamor follows her into the Fae realm. Now she’s broken Guild Law, a crime that could lead to her expulsion.

The last thing Vi wants to do is spend any more time with the boy who got her into this mess, but the Guild requires that she return Nate to his home and make him forget everything he’s discovered of the Fae realm. Easy, right? Not when you factor in evil faeries, long-lost family members, and inconvenient feelings of the romantic kind. Vi is about to find herself tangled up in a dangerous plot—and it’ll take all her training to get out alive.

Goodreads Summary:
Guardian trainee Violet Fairdale is just weeks away from one of the most important occasions of her life: graduation. After messing up big time by bringing a human into the fae realm, Vi needs to step up her game and forget about Nate if she hopes to graduate as the top guardian of her year. 

Everything would be fine if she wasn’t forced to partner with Ryn, her ex-friend, ex-enemy, current ‘sort of friend’. They might be trying to patch up their relationship, but does she really want to spend a week undercover with him for their final assignment? On top of that, the possibly insane Unseelie Prince is still on the loose, free to ‘collect’ as many specially talented faeries as he can find—and Vi is still at the top of his list. Add in faerie queens, enchanted storms, complicated not-just-friends feelings, and a murder within the Guild itself, and graduation is about to become the least of Vi’s problems.

Goodreads Summary:
Driven by action, suspense, and a strong heroine, this deliciously detailed, bestselling YA fantasy will keep you turning the pages right up until the epic conclusion...

Violet Fairdale is in big trouble. Her home is gone, her beloved forest lies in ruins, the guy she gave her heart to has deserted her—and she doesn’t remember any of it. The powerful Lord Draven is taking over, brainwashing guardians into fighting for him. No one is safe from the evil spreading throughout the fae world.

As alliances are forged between the remaining free fae, Vi struggles to reclaim her identity and figure out where she belongs in this new world. When someone from her past shows up, life gets even more complicated. He brings with him a long-forgotten weapon and an ancient prophecy that places Vi at the center of the fight against Draven. With the future of the fae world at stake, can Vi carry out the prophecy’s instructions before it’s too late?

Goodreads Summary:
One drop of blood is all it takes to throw Jessica Mitchell's mundane life into chaos. 

She doesn't think much about the scratch on her arm during her day working as an assistant cook at a New York pub. That changes when she's overtaken by nausea and chills while on the way home and collapses in Central Park. She awakens hours later, the blue eyes of a handsome stranger gazing down at her, and reluctantly accepts his help. But when this man tells her the world isn't what she thinks it is, she can't believe he's anything but insane. 

Craddock Daniels never planned on being a hero, but then he comes across a beautiful redhead, unconscious in the park. Inexplicably drawn to her, he soon learns that she's been changed against her will into one of his own kind – long-lived, well-concealed humanoids called the Mengliad. But Jessica is seen as an abomination to many among the Mengliad who believe in strict adherence to the purity of their species. 

When these Purists abduct Jessica and Craddock, she must trust him and rely on his knowledge if she wants to survive. Although helping Jessica means Craddock is risking his life, he can't let her die. Together, they must find a way to escape those who would annihilate them.
