Stacking the Shelves (62)

Welcome to this week's Stacking the Shelves hosted byTynga`s Reviews. It features books I bought or received for review each week. It is about adding books to my book shelf whether it by physical, virtual or audio. Thanks for stopping by!

Books purchased at Chapters Indigo:
The Siren by Keira Cass
Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

I was so happy when I ordered these books and I am so excited to read them. Unfortunately these are the last books I will be buying for a bit. No physical books, e-books, or audiobooks. Yikes! It's going to be so hard. I've put myself on a book buying ban because I realized I was buying more books that I could read. Hence the ban for 1-2 months. To tell you the truth I doubt I will last that long but I'm hoping I can hold off. I bought these books in February and it came earlier this week because of the March release of Lady Midnight. This will be the last Stacking the Shelves until I start buying books again :(

On another note, I'm currently reading The Heart of Betrayal (The Remnant Chronicles #2) in audiobook format and I'm loving it. The narrators are making this story come to life for me. Hopefully I will be able to finish it late this week. 

I hope everyone has a good week!

Waiting on Wednesday (67)

Lady Midnight (The Dark Artifices #1) by Cassandra Clare

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

I LOVE anything Cassandra Clare writes. I really think she can do no wrong. 
Expected Publication Date: March 8, 2016
Synopsis: (Taken from Goodreads)
Los Angeles. It’s been five years since the events of the Mortal Instruments when Nephilim stood poised on the brink of oblivion and Shadowhunter Emma Carstairs lost her parents. After the blood and violence she witnessed as a child, Emma has dedicated her life to to discovering exactly what it was that killed her parents and getting her revenge.

Raised in the Los Angeles Institute with the Blackthorn family, Emma is paired as a parabatai with her best friend, Julian Blackthorn. A series of murders in the city catch her attention — they seem to have the same characteristics as the deaths of her parents. Could the murderer be the same person? And her attention isn’t the only one caught: someone has been murdering Downworlders as well. The Fair Folk make a deal with the Institute: if the Blackthorns and Emma will investigate the killings, they’ll return Mark Blackthorn to his home. The catch: they have only two weeks to find the killers. Otherwise it’s open war between faeries and Nephilim.

The Shadowhunters of the Institute must race against time to catch the killers, even as they begin to suspect the involvement of those closest to them. At the same time, Emma is falling in love with the one person in the world she’s absolutely forbidden by Shadowhunter Law to love. Set against the glittering backdrop of present-day Los Angeles, Emma must learn to trust her head and her heart as she investigates a demonic plot that stretches from the warlock-run nightclubs of the Sunset Strip to the enchanted sea that pounds the beaches of Santa Monica.
