Stacking The Shelves #2

Stacking The Shelves (De boekenplanken vullen) gaat over de boeken die je toegevoegd hebt aan je planken, zowel fysieke als digitale planken. Dit betekend dat je boeken toe kan voegen die je gekocht hebt in de boekenwinkel or online, boeken die je van vrienden of de bibliotheek geleend hebt, boeken ontvangen voor recensies, gekregen boeken en natuurlijk eboeken! Dit is een wekelijkse meme (feature) georganiseerd door Tynga's Reviews , iedereen kan er aan mee doen!

Dit was een hele goeie freebie week, vorige week had ik besloten, dat ik eens een keer bij ging houden hoe veel freebies ik per week binnen haal. En het is eigenlijk echt schandalig hoeveel *verstopt zich onder de tafel* het totale aantal gratis boeken deze week was namelijk: 108. *Nog steeds verstopt... Uit deze pot heb ik er 5 uitgekozen om met jullie te delen! (anders wordt dit een eindeloze post)

1. Willow ~ A Blood Vine series #1 ~ Amy Richie ~ Libboo.com

“Being a werewolf is harder than it looks. Everyone thinks it’s just morph at the full moon, kill, morph back. That’s not true. It’s a lot harder than that. Especially if you are seventeen years old.”

Willow has the worst luck. First she has to deal with her narcissistic foster mother, Bella; then of course there’s her horrid little sister Ivy; not to mention the pack of werewolves that belong to Bella. Now, they have to move and start a new school - again.

Just when Willow thinks things can’t get any worse, Blake shows up from a council she never knew existed to name her leader of a pack she never knew existed. How was she supposed to teach a bunch of teenagers how to be wolves when she herself hated everything about her life? ( Source: Goodreads)

2. Firstborn ~ The MaCall Prophecy Trilogy #1 ~ Carrigan Fox

Jac MaCall is the eldest daughter of a wealthy and brilliant security consultant. She, however, has chosen a different life for herself, running a new age store that specializes in selling crystals, candles, and aromatherapy that enable people to tap into their subconscious awareness. But when Dr. Will Archer’s office is vandalized by a dangerous organization threatening his life, fate sends Jac in as a consultant for her father’s business to update his security and provide additional protection.

The old adage about opposites attracting proves true the moment he opens his door and finds the exotic beauty standing in her yoga pants while lecturing him on his security system and asking questions better left to the police. In time, Will and Jac learn that a prophecy involving the firstborn child of Will Archer has an extremist militant group fearful enough that they will not stop until Will and his unborn child are destroyed. When Jac gets a vision of her own future with the uptight and irresistible Dr. Archer, it becomes evident to everyone involved that she will play a bigger role in this prophecy than anyone had imagined.

And while her premonitions help her keep him alive, even she cannot foresee that their passion for each other will endanger them both.

3. Raksha ~ Blood & Fire #1 ~ Frankie Rose

She has no name.

She has her knives; her training; her halo.

The first and second give her the tools and the skill to defeat the opponents she is pitched against each month. The third frees her from pain and fear. From any kind of emotion at all. Everything is as it should be. Everything is as it should be, until…



4. Love, Lies and Friends ~Ellis Maton

5. Banished from grace ~ Fall from grace #1 ~ Aria Williams

She could heal the sick with her bare hands. Fast forward to the present day she has not aged and has no recollection of who she is and why she can perform miracles.
Life should be easy for Nardia, she is young and beautiful and could get any man she wanted, she just didn’t expect for two wonderful men to show so much interest at the same time. Nardia is confused and worries that making the wrong choice between the men could have disastrous conquences . One of these men is deceitful and has his own agenda and has not told the truth from the moment they met.

6. Pest ~ Henk van Kerkwijk.
Ik ben van de week ook wezen shoppen met mijn moeder en heb toen voor mezelf een boek gekocht! Dit is een boek wat ik heb gelezen heb toen ik jonger was, ik wist de naam niet meer, noch de schrijver. Maar toen ik op de markt bij de boekenkraam stond kwam ik hem toevallig tegen.

Op de achterkant:
Hoe moet je je verdedigen, als de mensen zeggen dat je een duivelskind bent? Een duivelskind dat alleen al door naar iemand te wijzen de pest, de gevreesde ziekte van de Middeleeuwen, kan overbrengen?
Dat overkomt de jonge Alessandro Baldini. Zijn ouders zijn al gestorven aan de builen en de zweren die de pest veroorzaakt. Zij kunnen hem niet meer helpen. Overal waar hij zich vertoont willen mensen zijn hand afhakken, hem doden.
Met de hulp van de deftige heraut Chester, de Vlaamse zwerver en nog enkele andere vrienden weet Alessandro steeds op het nippertje aan zijn vijanden te ontkomen. De Italiaanse jonge heeft een verklaring nodig van de bisschop, die kan getuigen dat hij geen pestduivel is, En de bisschop is in Avignon.
Alessandro en zijn vrienden trekken dwars door het land, en beleven onderweg spannende en afschuwelijke avonturen. Niet alleen hun vijanden, ook de pest zit hen op de hielen - en haalt hen soms ook in.
