Stacking the Shelves #20, Spoiler Sunday #4, & Weekly Recap

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly blog post hosted by Tynga's Reviews to share what books you've bought this past week. 
 The Ruining by Anna Collomore
Synopsis: (goodreads)
Annie Phillips is thrilled to leave her past behind and begin a shiny new life on Belvedere Island, as a nanny for the picture-perfect Cohen family. In no time at all, she falls in love with the Cohens, especially with Libby, the beautiful young matriarch of the family. Life is better than she ever imagined. She even finds romance with the boy next door.

All too soon cracks appear in Annie's seemingly perfect world. She's blamed for mistakes she doesn't remember making. Her bedroom door comes unhinged, and she feels like she's always being watched. Libby, who once felt like a big sister, is suddenly cold and unforgiving. As she struggles to keep up with the demands of her new life, Annie's fear gives way to frightening hallucinations. Is she tumbling into madness, or is something sinister at play?

The Ruining is a complex ride through first love, chilling manipulation, and the terrifying depths of insanity.
The Indigo Spell (Bloodlines #3)
 by Richelle Mead
Synopsis: (goodreads)
 In the aftermath of a forbidden moment that rocked Sydney to her core, she finds herself struggling to draw the line between her Alchemist teachings and what her heart is urging her to do. Then she meets alluring, rebellious Marcus Finch--a former Alchemist who escaped against all odds, and is now on the run. Marcus wants to teach Sydney the secrets he claims the Alchemists are hiding from her. But as he pushes her to rebel against the people who raised her, Sydney finds that breaking free is harder than she thought. There is an old and mysterious magic rooted deeply within her. And as she searches for an evil magic user targeting powerful young witches, she realizes that her only hope is to embrace her magical blood--or else she might be next.
 
Populated with new faces as well as familiar ones, the Bloodlines series explores all the friendship, romance, battles, and betrayals that made the #1 New York Times bestselling Vampire Academy series so addictive—this time in a part-vampire, part-human setting where the stakes are even higher and everyone’s out for blood.
It's Me Again:
That's it for this week but I'm ubber excited about these! What did you stack your shelves with?
Hiya everyone! So remember at the beginning of the year when I said I wanted to start a meme? Well here it is, mustache and all. I wanted a meme that would kinda help me more or less find out more about books. I notice when I see spoilers places I get super excited about the book and want to read it more. Also, I have a lot of friends that love spoiling the ending for themselves by reading the last page. It's a tad like Teaser Tuesday but I want the teaser to be..spoilery!

How it Works:

  • Take the last book you finished
  • Go to a scene you found particularly awesome and spoilery
  • Or the last line or two of the book
  • Please do Not give away the ending, story line, or anything that would ruin too much of the surprise
  • Please tag my blog somewhere in the posting
  • Leave a comment with a link so I can check out yours
 Sweet Evil (The Sweet Trilogy #1) by Wendy Higgins
Spoiler:
"Why did she leave?" he asked. His expectant expression told me he knew the answer.
"She saw, Jay."
He shut his eyes, stricken. "I didn't mean for that to happen. Marna is like, way out of my league, you know? I never expected...I just wasn't thinking." He rubbed his forehead.
Everyone cheated, according to Ginger. She'd even prophesied that Jay would.
