Stacking the Shelves

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews in which we book lovers showcase new books received that have put an even bigger bend in our shelves...

This week's haul:

::kindle love::

Life for Kansas was perfect until the day the world changed.
She has been hiding out for four years in solitude. It's the only way to survive. The only way not to draw the living dead. Helping a small group of people, she learns the new world might not be what she assumes. Venturing out of her refuge and comfort zone, she meets Rudy, who helps her find a greater purpose. She realizes that the world has moved on without her. Only it's not what she expects. Her knowledge of the living dead grows and only makes her more curious as humanity continues to hang on by a thread. While on her search for answers she finds comfort in new friendships and love, but her past seems as if it will haunt her forever. 
Kansas takes it upon herself to help other survivors, which would be easy if the famished were the only obstacles.
In a trilogy plot thick with twists and turns, this adult dark fantasy is emotional as much as it is horrifyingly gripping.

*Not intended for a young audience. Mature content.*


And their doom comes swiftly.

It was supposed to be the weekend of their lives—an exclusive house party on Henry Island. Best friends Meg and Minnie each have their reasons for being there (which involve T.J., the school’s most eligible bachelor) and look forward to three glorious days of boys, booze and fun-filled luxury.

But what they expect is definitely not what they get, and what starts out as fun turns dark and twisted after the discovery of a DVD with a sinister message: Vengeance is mine.

Suddenly people are dying, and with a storm raging, the teens are cut off from the outside world. No electricity, no phones, no internet, and a ferry that isn’t scheduled to return for two days. As the deaths become more violent and the teens turn on each other, can Meg find the killer before more people die? Or is the killer closer to her than she could ever imagine?

And I know I've posted it before, but I just can't help myself... Here's the trailer for Ten... *creeeeepy*

Happy Reading Everyone :)

  1. How perfect to get TEN in time for Halloween! I haven't read any of Gretchen's books, but I must admit that I love her blog and she comes across as such a nice person that I definitely plan to some day... and TEN particularly caught my interest. I'll be curious to see what you think!

  2. Ten sounds really scary. I am not sure I am brave enough to try it. My new books posts are at Ms. Martin Teaches Media and Inside of a Dog. Happy reading!

  3. Oh they both sound so creepy :P I haven't picked up Ten yet but it's on my TBR... I'm kind of a chicken so I'm putting it off lol. Thanks for stopping by my blog!! *New follower*

  4. I really really want to read Ten! I heard such great things about it and aboued Gretchen's other book, but I just somehow never picked them up...
    Taking on the Dead sounds like a great postapocalyptic read!
    Enjoy your books, and thanks for stopping by my post earlier :) I followed you back.

  5. Awesome books this week. Ten is amazing and perfect for a Halloween read. Happy reading!

    Here's my StS:

  7. I feel like a bunch of bloggers got TEN this week! It's that time of year, I guess :) Time to get creeped out!

  8. Thanks for sharing Ten Trailer. Yep creepy. I am not a huge fan of creepy novels, but Ten sounds good. Might have to give it a try. Curious who the Killer is.
