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 had a pretty good week! Added just a few titles to the TBR mountain!

For review from the publishers via Netgalley and Edelweiss, I got:

Into the Woods by Kim Harrison (ARC)
The Lost Prince by Julie Kagawa (ARC)

Thanks Harlequin Teen & Harper Voyager!

Then books I bought were:

The Goddess Legacy by Aimee Carter--my keeper copy since I read the ARC!
Kitty Steals the Show by Carrie Vaughn

I also got some other goodies in the mail! I ordered these last week or the week before...can't remember when! But they came! And they're Disney!!

 This adorable Mickey Mouse ears ornament, although right now it's on my bookshelf as an all year round decor! It's Princess Aurora's Mouse Ear Hat! The front as you can see is her pink dress with the rose, her gold crown, then a spinning wheel in one ear and the three good fairies in light ball form on the other! It was just so awesome and had the elements of the movie, I had to get it! What sealed the deal was seeing the back as the blue dress--my fave part in the movie is when the fairies argue over the dress color! And Aurora's signature on the back of the ear was a nice touch too!

 Then I got this cute little keepsake box! It's from the Haunted Mansion and it's one of the sliding picture frames! You know, in the beginning they look like nice little portraits and then they slide down to reveal it being a little scary? This is one of my fave rides at Disney World! I bought this one for myself because they had a one day BOGO deal!

Then I got this one as my freebie, since I felt like I didn't need two Haunted Mansion portraits! I thought I would save this and give it to my niece one day. She'll be turning four later this year before Xmas, but I thought I might wait another year since it is a ceramic type box. It's so cute too! It was smaller than I thought, but still adorable! Plus she'll know Cinderella by that time! Well she'll know Cinderella by October this year when it comes out of the vault!

And that was my haul for the week! I really only added 3 books to the mountain, so not bad! What did you get? Any other special not book goodies?


  1. The Mickey Mouse ears are so cute/beautiful!

    I need to read the Iron Fey series still. There's too many books though I still have to read in my shelves.

  2. The lost prince! :D I'm jealous! I really want to read that one. I recently sent my request, so I hope that they will accept it.

    I LOVE Disney, so I love your little Disney haul <3
