Stacking The Shelves is all about the books we are adding to our shelves each week, sharing with you our excitement for our newest titles and maybe have you discover a new book in the process!
I survived my week!! Barely. As it turns out, my credit card was hacked and when I went to buy lunch for me and my mom, it turns out there was a hold on it due to suspicious activity. I have since cleared it up, hopefully 100% and will get a new card next week sometime. It's just a hassle and nightmare. It really put me in a down mood for the rest of the day. And worse, I couldn't really go shopping happily anymore. Sigh...this is the first time this has happened to me ever, so I was pretty down. But it's taken care of and all will be well soon enough!
At least I got some great books this week!!! YAY books!!! And I don't have to read 1 of them since it's just a UK copy that I loved the cover too! Darn you Half Price Books! (just kidding, I love you and so love that you get UK copies! Keep it up and I'll keep buying them!)
Here's what I bought:
The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury
Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke--a HPB find!!
Made for You by Melissa Marr--another HPB find! And it's the UK copy!! Of course, pictured from Goodreads is the AU one, as I couldn't find the UK!
Kingdom of Ashes by Rhiannon Thomas--I still need to read A Wicked Thing, but I have the bad habit of buying the series as it goes even when I need to start it still!
Stray by Elissa Sussman--apart of my Book Outlet haul!
Of Dreams and Rust by Sarah Fine--another Book Outlet haul! And again, a series I still need to start! I have problems! LOL!
Dissonance by Erica O'Rourke--still need to read this one too, I have the hardcover but LOVED this new paperback! The colors are just gorgeous so when Book Outlet had it too, into the cart it went!
A Preorder WIN:
Titans by Victoria Scott--I won a preorder of this from Victoria awhile back and it arrived on release day! YAY!!
Books for review:
Midnight Marked by Chloe Neill
THANK YOU Penguin, St. Martin's Griffin, & Netgalley!
Then I also bought this:
A new Books I've Read Journal! I found my old one and decided to use this to write better summaries for myself when it came to reading sequels a year later!
I got this in the mail this week:
SWAG from Nicole Castroman! A SIGNED bookmark, postcard, and a nifty little pirate bracelet!
Then I also got this:
A NEW iPhone 6s!! My old phone was a 4s, so an upgrade was long overdue!! I'm still trying to get used to it, but I am liking it so far!
So other than a busy and intense work week and then the dreadful credit card situation, my week wasn't too bad! I'll feel better once I get my new card and things roll back into a more normal routine! What did you all get?
