Stacking the Shelves #11

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly blog post hosted by Tynga's Reviews to share what books you've bought this past week.

Last week I read the book Glitch by Heather Anastasiu and one of my followers (Ashley from Booknook) really wanted to read the book. So after I finished reading Glitch I sent her a copy. In exchange I received

Easy by Tammara Webber
A girl who believes trust can be misplaced, promises are made to be broken, and loyalty is an illusion. A boy who believes truth is relative, lies can mask unbearable pain, and guilt is eternal. Will what they find in each other validate their conclusions, or disprove them all?

When Jacqueline follows her longtime boyfriend to the college of his choice, the last thing she expects is a breakup two months into sophomore year. After two weeks in shock, she wakes up to her new reality: she's single, attending a state university instead of a music conservatory, ignored by her former circle of friends, and failing a class for the first time in her life.

Leaving a party alone, Jacqueline is assaulted by her ex's frat brother. Rescued by a stranger who seems to be in the right place at the right time, she wants nothing more than to forget the attack and that night--but her savior, Lucas, sits on the back row of her econ class, sketching in a notebook and staring at her. Her friends nominate him to be the perfect rebound.

When her attacker turns stalker, Jacqueline has a choice: crumple in defeat or learn to fight back. Lucas remains protective, but he's hiding secrets of his own. Suddenly appearances are everything, and knowing who to trust is anything but easy.

I also got asked to do another review by author Sharon Hawes who wrote The Sitter, so I now own this book on e-book.

The Sitter by Sharon Hawes
A horrific event--the deliberate drowning of Stevie Connor by his sitter, Larry Cutler--starts this thriller. Stevie’s mother Jeannie is overcome with grief and her suspicion that Stevie’s death was not the accident Larry describes. Increasingly troubled, Jeannie begins to search for answers, risking everything to learn the truth about what really happened to Stevie, and the growing threat to her family that only she can see.

And that's it for me this week.
