Stacking the Shelves [12]

Go over to Tynga's Reviews and join in on the fun!
Hey all! I got some great stuff this week! I went to the library and came home with 3 books that I have no idea what it's about, but looked good when I checked it out. So, here we go!

What I Got From the Library:
  • The Catastrophic History of You and Me  by Jess Rothenberg—I know I've seen this book a couple of times on Goodreads, but never thought about checking out what it's about. Then I saw it at the library and I read the summary and it seemed like it would be really interesting!
  • Diverse Energies—This is an anthology of stories about the future, and what it'll give us. The authors in this are Ellen Oh, Daniel H. Wilson, K. Tempest Bradford, Ken Liu, Greg van Eekhout, Rahul Kanakia, Malinda Lo, Paolo Bacigalupi, Cindy Pon, Rajan Khanna, and Ursula K. Le Guin. The book is edited by Tobias S. Buckell and Joe Monti. I saw this at the library and discovered I haven't ever read an anthology  before, so I thought I'd give it a try. Plus, it's about dystopian worlds, and that's one of my favorite genres. 
  • Not Exactly A Love Story by Audrey Couloumbis—I had no idea what this book was until I spotted it on my library's "New Teen Books" shelf. I was reading the summary, and parts of it caught my attention. It also seems like it'd be partly comical, and I love laughing while reading books. 
Look! I Won Something!!!
  • I got a swag pack from Entangled Teen! And almost all of it is signed! LOOK! I was totally excited when this came in the mail.

  6. I have The Catastrophic History of You and Me, too, but still haven't read it. I bought it at a warehouse sale for about 2 bucks. It looks really interesting. Hopefully I will get to it soon.

    Happy reading :)
