Stacking the Shelves #5

Stacking The Shelves, hosted by Tynga, 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!

It’s back to school! So along with the boring textbooks I had to buy for class, I also got some fun stuff to read in between breaks. I mostly bought manga/graphic novels, but I’m most excited to read Maus (which I have to read for one of my classes). I also won a nice paperback copy of Seige and Storm from a giveaway hosted by the amazing Chiara @ Eternal Delicacy. She has a lovely blog, so go check it out!

What I’m waiting on…

 The Theory of Everything by Kari Luna

 Expected Release Date |  July 11, 2013

 Publisher | Philomel Books

One part Libba Bray’s GOING BOVINE, two parts String Theory, and three parts love story equals a whimsical novel that will change the way you think about the world.

Sophie Sophia is obsessed with music from the late eighties. She also has an eccentric physicist father who sometimes vanishes for days and sees things other people don’t see. But when he disappears for good and Sophie’s mom moves them from Brooklyn, New York, to Havencrest, Illinois, for a fresh start, things take a turn for the weird. Sophie starts seeing things, like marching band pandas, just like her dad.

Guided by Walt, her shaman panda, and her new (human) friend named Finny, Sophie is determined to find her father and figure out her visions, once and for all. So she travels back to where it began—New York City and NYU’s physics department. As she discovers more about her dad’s research on M-theory and her father himself, Sophie opens her eyes to the world’s infinite possibilities—and her heart to love.

Perfect for fans of Going Bovine,The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and The Probability of Miracles. (Courtesy of Amazon)

Why I want it?

I first heard about this from a booktuber’s video (it was a long time ago so I forgot where the original video is) and it sounded like a very fun and quirky read. The synopsis intrigued me and the cover was so adorable that I immediately pre-ordered it on Amazon. I’ve been waiting for this book for months! I don’t think I can quietly wait for another whole month.
