Stacking The Shelves- Week 2

Hosted by: Tyngas Reviews

Yay it's the weekend everyone! I had work this morning but it wasn't as bad as anticipated. I'm getting ready to have a glass of wine and to continue reading Fall of Man in Wilmslow- its brilliant! But before that, let me share with you guys the books I've added to my Goodreads to-be-read list bookshelves! :-)

The Day We Disappeared by Lucy Robinson

Annie has a secret. But if she's not going to tell, we won't either. It's a heartbreaking secret she wishes she didn't have- yet Annie isn't broken, not quite yet. Especially now there's someone out there who seems determined to fix her.
Kate has run away. But she's not going to tell us why- that would defeat the point of running, wouldn't it? It's proving difficult to reinvent herself, however, with one person always on her mind.
Scratch beneath the surface and nobody is really who they seem. Even Annie and Kate, two old friends, aren't entirely sure who they are any more. Perhaps you can work it out, before their pasts catch up with them for good...

This book intrigue's me, I like a book where you have to figure out what's going on but this book seems very dark and meaningful- so I'm excited to give this a go!

An Ember In The Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

Laia is a scholar living under the iron-fisted rule of the Martial Empire. When her brother is arrested for treason, Laia goes undercover as a slave at the empire's greatest military academy in exchange for assistance from rebel scholars who claim that they will help to save her brother from execution.
Ellias is the academy's finest soldier- and secretly, it's most unwilling. Ellias is considering deserting the military, but before he can, he's ordered to participate in a ruthless contest to choose the next Martial emperor.
When Laia and Elias' paths cross at the academy, they find that their destines are more intertwined than either could have imagined and that their choices will change the future of the empire itself.

I can't express how much I need this book, it sounds awesome and it's definitely on my priority list!

The Kiss of Deception (The Remnant Chronicles #1)

She flees on her wedding day.
She steals ancient documents from the Chancellor's secret collection.
She is pursued by bounty hunters sent by her own father.
She is Princess Lia, seventeen, First Daughter of the House Morrighan.
The Kingdom of Morrighan is steeped in tradition and the stories of a bygone world, but some traditions Lia can't abide. Like having to marry someone she's never met to secure a political alliance.
Fed up and ready for a new life, Lia flees to distant village on the morning of her wedding. She settles in among the common folk, intrigued when two mysterious and handsome strangers arrive- and unaware that one is the jilted prince and the other an assassin sent to kill her. Deceptions swirl and Lia finds herself on the brink of unlocking perilous secrets- secrets that may unravel her world- even as she feels herself falling in love.

This book sounds exciting, a rebellious princess and her being hunted down by her father to marry someone she doesn't want to marry...love it!

A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman

Meet Ove. He's curmudgeon- the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him "the bitter neighbor from hell." But must Ove be a bitter just because he doesn't walk around with a smile plastered to his face all the time?

Behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness. So when one November morning a chatty young couple with two chatty young daughters move in next door and accidentally flatten Ove's mailbox, it is the lead-in to a comical and heartwarming tale of unkempt cats, unexpected friendship, and the ancient art of backing up a U-Haul. All of which will change one cranky old man and a local residents' association to their very foundations.

Ove reminds me of myself it would seem haha, I may not always have a smile on my face but I certainly not miserable or cranky all the time!

Darkness of Night by Stacey Marie Brown (Darkness #1)

Freak. Witch. Crazy, Schizo.
Ember Brycin has been called them all. She's always known she's different. No one has ever called her normal, even under the best circumstances. Bizarre and inexplicable things continually happen to her, and having two different coloured eyes, strange hair, and an unusual tattoo only contributes to the gossip about her.
When the latest school explosion lands her in a facility for troubled teens, she meets Eli Dragen, who's hot as hell and darkly mysterious. Their connection is full of passion, danger, and secrets. Secrets that will not only change her life, but what and who she is- leading her down a path she never imagined possible.
Between Light and Dark, Ember finds a world where truth and knowledge are power and no one can be trusted. But her survival depends on finding out the truth about herself. In her pursuit, she is forced  between love and destiny and good and evil, even when the differences between them aren't always clear. At worst, she will incite a war that could destroy both worlds. At best, she will not only lose her heart but her life and everyone she loves. Once the truth is out, however, there will be no going back. And she'll definitely wish she could.

So I heard about this book from the lovely Ben, it's currently a free book on Kindle which you can find here. Be sure to check out Ben's YouTube channel, every Friday he'll be sharing awesome free books available on Kindle!

Well that's it lovelies, I can't wait to read these books they all sound amazing! What books have you added to your shelves lately? Tell me in the comments I'd love to know! Have a great weekend :-)
