Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews where book bloggers share their weekly book haul.

I had some money to burn, so I took a trip to Barnes & Noble. It had been so long since I had been in there that I was stunned by all of the books I have yet to read.

It was hard to narrow down my selection, but ultimately I am happy with my purchases.

What books are you guys reading this week?

Nearly Gone by Elle Cosimano

goneExpected Publication: March 25, 2014

Publisher: Kathy Dawson Books

Synopsis from Goodreads: 

Bones meets Fringe in a big, dark, scary, brilliantly-plotted urban thriller that will leave you guessing until the very end. 

Nearly Boswell knows how to keep secrets. Living in a DC trailer park, she knows better than to share anything that would make her a target with her classmates. Like her mother’s job as an exotic dancer, her obsession with the personal ads, and especially the emotions she can taste when she brushes against someone’s skin. But when a serial killer goes on a killing spree and starts attacking students, leaving cryptic ads in the newspaper that only Nearly can decipher, she confides in the one person she shouldn’t trust: the new guy at school—a reformed bad boy working undercover for the police, doing surveillance. . . on her. 

Nearly might be the one person who can put all the clues together, and if she doesn’t figure it all out soon—she’ll be next.

I have seen this cover floating around, but today was the first day that I really paid attention to the synopsis. It sounds like just the right amount of thrill and creep, so it practically has my name written all over it.
