Stacking the Shelves

This weekly meme is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.

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!

So I was a bad girl this week. I bought more books! It really really started to hit me how many books I have yet to read. How much else I still need to do on a daily basis. I realized I will likely never clear my TBR pile. But oh well!

This week I got:

 Spells by Arpilynne Pike
Illusions by Aprilynne Pike
Enchanted by Alethea Kontis
Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins

So since I have the first Wings book on my kindle from ages ago, got the fourth book in ARC format at RT, I decided to get books 2 and 3! Plus Aprilynne, along with a few other authors are coming to St. Louis in July for the Supernatural Days, or something like that, tour! So hopefully I will get at least one of the books done, since Veronica Roth is another of the authors coming, I need to read her book too! Along with a million others! It's scary! And plus I felt like I had to buy Aprilynne's books since I had a 25% off coupon at B&N and on top of that I get another 10% off, so yeah, my arm was really twisted this weekend! ;)

EDIT: Forgot to add this one in, it's not a book, but still super cool and paranormal related. I ordered this online with a giftcard I've had since Xmas.

I do apologize if the pic is too big. I have not been able to figure out how to resize it, it appears properly when I see it, hence the reason why I never know it takes over my blog! But's a Jim Shore figure--which I love, especially Disney related one--but it is the Hitchhiking Ghosts from The Haunted Mansion ride at Disney World!! I thought it was too cool to pass up, and I actually did pass it up once, but then it came back and I had to buy it! The Haunted Mansion is of my all time fave rides at Disney World! It even glows in the dark and the lamps on top light up too! 

So what did you get?

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there!



  1. Woot! Great haul, Jessica! And I totally know what you mean about buying way too many books... that's why I try my best to stay out of book stores when I'm feeling particularly bookish. :P Enchanted seems great! It's been on my TBR list for quite some time now, so I should really pick it up. And OMG you are so freaking lucky you got an ARC of Sweet Evil!! So jealous! :P Thanks for stopping by My IMM!

    Enjoy your books hun!

  3. I saw Spells and Illusions at the store the other day and wanted them instantly! Thanks for stopping by! StS

  4. You got a nice collection of books. I know I had Wings on my stack once upon a time. I donated it to my high school media center during one of my "I'll never get time to read these" purges. Have a great week and thanks for visiting my posts.

  5. Oh wow, what a great haul! Love all of those covers, too! I especially want to read Sweet Evil from this collection. I've heard SO many good things about it. I hope you enjoy them all!
