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!

I was bad, so very very bad! :)

I added wayyy too many books to my TBR mountain, including review books! I long to read my earlier 2012 releases, but I am so behind!

Here's how I was bad this week:

For review--which I can't really help! ;) --I got:

 Dearly, Beloved by Lia Habel (ARC)
The Blood Keeper by Tessa Gratton (ARC)
Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter (ARC)--I was quoted in this from my Twisted review!! 

Books I bought myself were: 

The Taken by Vicki Pettersson
The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead
Vengeance Moon by Lee Roland
The Hunter and The Hunted by Kelley Armstrong*
Lies Beneath by Anne Greenwood Brown

*I admit to buying this one purely because Kelley was having a promo where you get this wicked awesome bookmark signed! So shamelessly, I bought this!

And not really book related, but still so awesome I bought two necklaces from two different Etsy shops because they were just so wicked awesome!

The pendant on the left is a Dargon's Eye! I saw it as I was reading Hidden and thought, I have to have it! It came from Shadows and Spirits!

The pendant on the right is called Belle's Trinket. There was a short little passage, saying that this is what Belle held while in the Beast's castle. It was her mother's and it was the only she had of hers. I thought it was pretty! And since it is based on something from the fairy tale--not the Disney movie since Disney bans mothers for the princesses--I thought why not! This came from Peacock Tres Chic!

And that was my fabulous hoard this week! All very nice! But OMG, my TBR pile is outrageously insane!! It never used to be this insane!

What did you get?


  1. Wow, Alice in Zombieland sounds amazing! I really have to read that. Lies Beneath and The Taken look like great books too.

    Here is my weekly round up post.

  2. My TBR is always insane. I buy waaaaay faster than I read. I think Lies Beneath looks awesome.

    I still need to read Dearly, Departed. I need to do some serious reading as well, but I have a trip coming up. I'll be gone for like a week. This summer is flying by!
