Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews. It is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, be it physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in a physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!
Tynga publishes her post each Saturday, so be sure to link up your posts and check out what books others have added to their shelves that week.
I just finished reading the second book in the Gallagher Girls series, Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy. I already own books 3, 4 and 5 and couldn't resist purchasing this one as well.
I loved the Nightshade series, so I was super excited to hear that Andrea Cremer was writing a book for adults that is set in the Nightshade world. She is publishing them under a different name, A.D. Robertson, to help differentiate the YA from the Adult books.
This is my first book from Netgalley....and I doubt it will be the last. From what I have seen, the site is very addicting.

This book is not like most of the books I read, but for some reason the description caught my attention. I will post my review on November 21st as part of a review tour.
Craft, 47, has always craved the comfort of his role as the eccentric English teacher at Earhart High in the suburbs of St. Louis. But now he finds himself in the school's library, suffering a mysterious mental paralysis that won t allow him to stop reading The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock.
Lila, 21, has a holiday-break rendezvous planned with her old mentor, Craft. Actually, Lila has many plans and they're not all nice. She's feeling more than a little betrayed and bewildered after discovering that her father is not the man her mother always said. In fact, he kills people.
Duke, 17, is a high-school dropout working in the bowels of Disney World. In his room before dawn, he stuffs essentials into a backpack, preparing to leave home for the first time. It's news to him, but he has this (disturbed?) sister, Lila, and she wants him to come to L.A. to meet her.
The altered reality Craft and these lost-and-found siblings inhabit propels them on separate journeys across America. In a landscape of angels and mirrors, allies and adversaries, Craft, Lila, and Duke converge to expose the man whose life of violence connects them. Will they find wholeness, justice, and love? Or is it all an invitation to unleash demons best left asleep?
