[Stacking the Shelves] Post-Christmas Book Haul

This is a weekly meme hosted be Tynga's Reviews


Yeah I know, Christmas isn't even two weeks over and I'm here to share eight new books with you. But I honestly didn't buy anything (except from 3 eBooks), all those books are post-Christmas gifts from my aunt or things I bought from a gifted Amazon gift card.
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare To be Honest, I have to admit I'm not a huge fan of Cassandra Clare. I started her The Mortal Instruments Series but didn't enjoy it, so I didn't continue on with it. But everyone seems to love Clare, so I decided to give her an kinda second chance. I'm a little fan of book set in Victorian age and I heard incredible things about this trilogy, so I think I'll give it a shot.
The Archived by Victoria Schwab Since I read Vicious last month I fell in love with Schwabs writing and her great ideas! I looked up some summarys of her books and they sounded incredible good. So I asked my aunt if she could get me a Victoria Schwab book for Christmas and she gave me the one I mosted wanted. Thanks ♥
Trial by Fire by Josephine Angelini I didn't read her Starcrossed (I think that's what it's called) trilogy but I heard really good things about it. So when her new book about witchcraft came out I put it on my wish list. I really like the cover, but I heard some mixed things about it.
Mistborn Trilogy von Brandon Sanderson I know, I'm probably the last person who haven't read a Brandon Sanderson book yet. But I heard so many good things about it! And I'm really into High/Epic Fantasy lately, so I can't wait to start this trilogy. 
Nachtzug nach Lissabon by Pascal Mercier and Das Blubbern von Glück by Barry Jonsberg are two German books I got.

 I also bought 3 eBooks. They were super cheap on Amazon and, thanks to Maura who told me, I had to get my hands on them. They're from my wishlist and I'm happy to finnaly have them. I hope I'll be able to read them soon!


I got only two books this week. One of those books is an eBook: Uninvited by Sophie Jordan. It is - or was - really cheap on Amazon AND it stood on my wishlist for weeks (or rather months), so I just had to buy it. I'll hopefully read it soon, because it sounds so interesting and unique. 
The second book which I bought is City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. Of course I've already read it (and the entire series), but for some mysterious reasons I didn't own it - until now. I'm so happy that it's finally standing right next to all the other books of The Mortal Instruments series on my bookshelf.

  2. Hey there,

    thanks to you I know have another book on my SUB: Uninvited. The plot sounds really cool so thank you for the tip :D
    I also own "since you've been gone" which I got for christmas from my girlfriend.

    Love and all,

    1. Haha, it's pretty cool how so many people buy this book now, since I've discovered that's so cheap. I hope you enjoy reading it!
      Have you already started "Since You've Been Gone"? Anyways, it's a great Christmas present!

    2. Bookblogs will be the dead of me one day Since I am reading them my wishlist is growing and growing :D

      No, I couldn't start it yet. Actually I haven't touched a book since December 22th. I normally only read when I am on my way to/from work and since I had holidays the last two weeks I didn't read a word. I know it's a shame but I am just not the type for sitting down on the couch and read. And I don't even know why...
