Stacking the Shelves (34) & Book News (2)

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.

Erin's Books:
Inside Out by Maria V Snyder
The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson
Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta
Froi of the Exiles by Melina Marchetta
The Gathering Dark by Christine Johnson
Clockwork Princess (signed) by Cassandra Clare

Inside Out and The Gathering Dark came from Haley via YA Book Exchange, The Sky is Everywhere and Finnikin of the Rock are library books, Clockwork Princess came from Books of Wonder, and Froi of the Exiles I bought.

Book News is a new thing we're doing, and while the title may change, the point is to recap what has gone on in the book world over the past week. (Keep in mind, for right now it's all YA lit news)

Only a few cover reveals this week (all covers linked to Goodreads).

Rachel Caine revealed the cover on Twitter. It releases November 5, 2013 from NAL Hardcover/Penguin. This is the last planned Morganville Vampires books (#15).

Stacey Jay revealed the new cover on her blog. It releases July 23, 2013 from Delacorte BFYR. According the Stacey, the cover was changed because the old one didn't show that while this was a retelling, it was also set on another planet, and booksellers were concerned that the old cover was too paranormal romance-looking (though there is romance, it's just not paranormal). Here's the old cover, for reference:

That's everything for this week. What do you think?

  1. While I'm still in love with the old cover from Of beast and beauty, the reason for the redesign are good enough to accept the new cover :p


  2. I like both the new and the old cover. I think the new cover does look more sci fi and the old cover looks more gothic. Great stash of books too. I loved Finnikin of the Rock and and Froi of the Exiles. I can't wait to get my hands on the last installement Qunintana of Charyn. The Sky is Everywhere and Inside Out are good too. Happy reading!
