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!

Well, it was a slow week, only bought one e-book and it's really just a novella. Which is not bad at all. Not adding to the TBR mountain extraneously is always good! I still got some other awesome goodies though too!

First I won an awesome Chicagoland Vampires swag pack from Awesomesauce Book Club! I got a mouse pad, stickers, bookmarks, an I survived Hard Bitten button, and a postcard! Plus a bookmark and card from the Ambers! I love it!

Then I ordered some things from Zazzle since they sent me a coupon! I couldn't really pass that up!

I got a 13 to Life shirt! As you know I adore this series and decided to get this one. I liked the Pietr shifting from a wolf to guy shirt, but I just loved the Live Life Fiercely saying on this one!

I also got this key chain. It's a little hard to see since I couldn't get the internet photo to cooperate. But there's a stack of books and the spines say: So many books, so little time. Because ain't that the truth!

Then the actual and only book/novella that I got was:

Blooded by Amanda Carlson

It's the prequel to her series that comes out next week which sounds awesome! And not just because the heroine has the most coolest name ever! ;)

And lastly, while it's only 50% bookish--since the first DVD wasn't really based on a book that I am aware of--I got 2 movies:
Pocahontas 1 & 2 Combo pack, got the Blueray one so my niece can have the movies too. Basically got 4 movies for $30!

And the other is JAWS! Which was based on a book! That I read! It's Universal's 100th Anniversary edition, Blueray copy! 

This one I actually won in a contest from our newspaper. They've been doing them a lot lately and I've entered quite a few. Never won. Had this one on DVD, but then saw the special (Universal) anniversary Blueray edition and thought, why not? All you do is mail in the entry form! Was pretty surprised that I won this one! Had a laugh with my mom about it, because out of all the contests we've entered in the paper for movies, we win this one! A movie we'd seen 1000's of times already!

And that was my mailbox haul! So pretty good! Only added a novella to the TBR mountain and got some other bookish goodies and two movies! Yay!

What did you get?

  17. I'm so freaking jealous of the Chloe Neill swag, I so need a Hard Bitten button! Pocahontas rocks! Must have seen that movie like 20 times when I went on vacation last month. Colors of the wind is magical!

    OK, now for my disney-related comment because nobody else loves Disney like I do except you. Have you heard of Disneybound? Its a tumblr blog of this girl who puts together the most awesome disney inspired outfits. I could spend hours on that site.

  18. Thanks for stopping by my IMM! Enjoy your cool stuff!

  19. Nice haul, Jessica! I hope you enjoy everything you got this week <3

  20. I think your going to need a bigger boat! Jaws is a great classic, but I never read the book. I have it though, and keep planning to read it, so maybe it about time I do. :)

  21. I really enjoyed Blooded and hope you do too!

  22. Awesome swag pack and I always love your shirts!

  26. Lots of awesome swag and such. YAY Pocahontas! Happy Reading!

  27. Sometimes, not adding to your TBR pile is a smart idea. I should do that more often than not. But yay on getting swag! That's always a good alternative.
    Thanks so much for passing by my post. I appreciate the comments.
