Stacking The Shelves #13

Saturday, July 16, 2016


is hosted by Tynga´s Reviews and is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course eBooks!





I don´t know since how long I´ve been wanting Maggie Hall´s The Conspiracy of Us. I kind of fell in love with the cover a long time ago & now I am holding it in my hands *happy dance*
The second book of Alice Clayton´s The Hudson Valley Series is one, I am waiting for since about June this year. After I´ve read Nuts it was crystal clear to me, that I had to have this second book. And with that cover, who could resist?

The last one in this week Stacking The Shelves is a thriller, that was send to me by the publisher without any notice up front. I reviewed the first book of the Klara Walldéen Series by Joakim Zander some months ago and this one sounds as promising as the previous book was. It will be the next I am reading, that´s for sure.

The Conspiracy of Us by Maggie Hall


Avery West´s newfound family can shut down Prada when they want to shop in peace, and can just easily order a bombing when they want to start a war. Part of a powerful and dangerous secret society called the Circle, they believe Avery is the key to an ancient prophecy. Some want to use her as a pawn. Some want her dead.
To unravel the mystery putting her life in danger, Avery must follow a trail of clues from the monuments of Paris to the back alleys of Istanbul with two boys who work for the Circle – beautiful, volatile Stellan and mysterious, magnetic Jack. But as the clues expose a stunning conspiracy that might plunge the world into World War 3, she discovers that both boys are hiding secrets of their own. Now she will have to choose not only between freedom and family – but between the boy who might help her save the world, and the one she´s falling in love with.


Cream of the Crop by Alice Clayton


Manhattan´s It Girl, Natalie Grayson, has it all: she´s a hot exec at a leading advertising firm, known industry-wide for her challenging and edgy campaigns. She´s got a large circle of friends, a family that loves her dearly, and her dance card is always full with handsome, eligible bachelors. What else could a modern gal-about-town wish for? The answer, of course, is … cheese.
Natalie´s favorite part of the week is spending Saturday morning at the Union Square Farmer´s Market, where she indulges her love of all things handsome. Oscar Mendoza, owner of the Bailey Falls Creamery and purveyor of the finest artisanal cheeses the Hudson Valley has to offer, is tall, dark, mysterious, and a bit oblivious. Or so she thinks. But that doesn´t stop Natalie from fantasizing about the size of his, ahem, milk can.
Romance is churning, passion is burning, and something incredible is rising to the top. Could it be … love?



Reviewer´s copy

The Believer by Joakim Zander*


Yasmine Ajam has fled her past in the rough Stockholm borough Bergort, reinventing herself as a trend spotter in New York City. One day she receives a startling message: there are riots stirring on the streets of Stockholm and they appear to be connected with the disappearance of her brother, Fadi. Following rumors that Fadi was radicalized and died fighting for ISIS in Syria, Yasmine entangled in a dangerous web ob allegiances and violence that stretches far beyond the gangs of her childhood streets.
Meanwhile, in London, Klara Walldéen has landed a job at a human rights research institute working on a report to predict the effects of privatization of police forces. When Klara travels to Stockholm to present her findings to European Union policy makers, her laptop is stolen and one of her colleagues is pushed in front of a subway train. As her path collides with Yasmine´s, Klara begins to realize that she may unwittingly be contributing to the sinister agendas of powerful interests, who will stop at nothing to attain their goals.


*The cover you see, is that of the Swedish original edition. The US edition will be published in 2017. So far, the publisher doesn´t provide a US cover yet.
