Stacking the Shelves & It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

I just checked and I think I haven't done this meme in almost a month! Surely that is a crime! Thankfully I have so many books to talk about this week that I need this post in order to even know which ones I have. Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Stephanie over at Tynga's Reviews and It's Monday! What Are You Reading? by Sheila over at BookJourney.

Last week I went to an Urban Fantasy evening hosted by Orbit and was given an absolutely beautiful giftbag with all of the books below. I've included links to GoodReads because if I had to put in all of the synopses we'd never finish this post!

The Oversight (Oversight Trilogy, #1)Night Broken (Mercy Thompson, #8)The Remaining (The Remaining, #1)Full Blooded (Jessica McClain, #1)A Dance of Cloaks (Shadowdance, #1)Fated (Alex Verus, #1)Fortune's Pawn (Paradox, #1)Abaddon's Gate (Expanse, #3)When It's A Jar

The Oversight by Charlie Fletcher, Night Broken by Patricia Biggs, The Remaining by D.J. Molles, Full Blooded Amanda Carlson, Fated by Benedict Jacka, A Dance of Cloaks by David Dalglish, Pawn by Rachel Bach, Abaddon's Gate by James S.A. Corey and When It's A Jar by Tom Holt.

Don't they all look pretty? But that's not it! After the trip in London, I came home to Only Ever Yours by Louise O'Neill, which I've just read an absolutely loved! Expect a review tomorrow! And then at the Lowdham Book Festival I bought Burning Your Boats by Angela Carter. As a teenager I really didn't like Angela Carter, but now, at the ripe age of twenty, my eyes have been opened and I admire the woman!
