Stacking the Shelves


Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews, is about sharing the books you got from a store, online, library, or friend. From anywhere and in any format--just share what books you've got:)

So I got two books recently, and one of them is Gilt Hollow by Lorie Langdon. I got a copy of it from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for an honest review. Honestly, I love it when BookLook has a new YA book out for reviews. I love the selections they have and can't wait for future books from them^_^

Gilt Hollow


Willow Lamott’s best friend is a murderer, and no one in the small town of Gilt Hollow will let her forget it. For four long years, she’s tried to fade into the background—but none of that matters when Ashton Keller comes striding into school, fresh out of juvie and fueled by revenge. The moment their eyes meet, Willow no longer feels invisible. Drawn to the vulnerability behind Ashton’s mask of rage, she sinks deeper into his sinister world and begins to question whether he’s a villain, a savior, or both.
Ashton thought he wanted vengeance, until Willow reminded him what he’d been missing. Now he longs to clear his name and become the person she sees in him. But the closer they get to uncovering the truth, the darker the secrets become, and Ashton fears his return to Gilt Hollow will destroy everyone he loves, especially the girl he left behind.

The other book I got is Heng Mountain by Mike Robinson. I got this one from netgalley :D The cover caught my attention (nuff said).

Heng Mountain


In the seventeenth century guardians protected China’s most precious secrets – teachings that could change the course of its history. When the Manchu tribe invade and march to the Great Wall of China, the legends of these secrets send Jun, a young man from the southern Hunan province, to find and protect them.
From the first day his mother had held Jun, she wanted to share all that she knew of their province with him, but she died when he was a young boy. His father whispered her words of wisdom to him every night, but hid his family’s knowledge of the ancient teachings, until the Manchu soldiers advanced upon their village.
With hope lost, and freedom being surrendered to the murdering Manchu leader, Jun fights with destiny to win back his province, but without an army of men, or weapons, he needs more than just his mother’s wisdom to defeat the enemy. Jun must find the inner strength of a great mountain…
