What's new on my shelves...

Hello everyone :)
I hope you all had a great christmas! I got a lot of books and could fill the whole post with them, but let's talk about other news on my shelves by answering some questions...

What are you reading currently?
I started reading two books this week. The first one is a newer version of Tuor and the Fall of Gondolin by Tolkien, edited together by his son. I love it! Middle earth has such a strong mythology and the old stories help understanding that a lot.
I watched The Hobbit movie, too this week (All I'm saying is: Fangirl Heaven!) and when they found the swords Gandalf said that they were made by the elves of the first century while I was sitting in the cinema screaming "In Gondolin!". Nothing is better than convincing a whole cinema of your nerdness.

The second one is The Demon Lover by Juliet Dark which I got through Net Galley. So a huge thank you goes to the Random House Publishing Group for accepting my request. I already went through half of the book and I really like it so far! It has the perfect theme for me centering on fairy tales and old gothic lit.

What is new on your shelf?
Well I got many new books for christmas but the one I look most forward too would be a Sneak Peek of The Archived by Victoria Schwab. The book sounds really amazing and I can't wait to start reading it!

What have you just finished on your shelf?
The last "book" I finished was actually a manga, I have a lot of catching up to do with the One Piece series. I did start a lot of books lately but never get to finish them... Well I should change that more than fast!

What is the most anticipated book you want to read next?
That's a tough one! There are so many upcoming books I would love to get!
I would die to get my hands on Mind Games by Kiersten White. The synopsis just sounds so interesting:

Fia was born with flawless instincts. Her first impulse, her gut feeling, is always exactly right. Her sister, Annie, is blind to the world around her—except when her mind is gripped by strange visions of the future. 

Trapped in a school that uses girls with extraordinary powers as tools for corporate espionage, Annie and Fia are forced to choose over and over between using their abilities in twisted, unthinkable ways… or risking each other’s lives by refusing to obey.

In a stunning departure from her New York Times bestselling Paranormalcy trilogy, Kiersten White delivers a slick, edgy, heartstoppingly intense psychological thriller about two sisters determined to protect each other—no matter the cost.

How yould you answer those questions? What did you change on your shelves this week?
