Stacking the Shelves--Christmas Edition!

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!

It was a fabulous week of book getting!! Mostly due to Christmas but I did end up buying a lot more before and after the holiday!! 

Here's my pre-Christmas haul:

Blood-Kissed Sky by J.A. London
Darkness Hunts by Keri Arthur
Murder on the House by Juliet Blackwell
Trapped by Kevin Hearne

Rivals and Retributions by Shannon Delany 
(a SIGNED copy from Shannon!)

Which also came with a sneak peek at Weather Witch plus a signed postcard of Weather Witch!

Thanks again Shannon!

My Christmas haul included:

Tiger's Destiny by Colleen Houck
Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson (keeper copy)
Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes
Carnival of Souls by Melissa Marr
Dearly, Beloved by Lia Habel (keeper copy)

And my best friend got me:

War of Witches by Maite Carranza
+ a B&N Gift Card

These totally cute pajama pants with books and words all over them!

a Maleficent journal
a Jessie Journal
and another Pop Bookmark! This one's Ariel!
Still trying to find a Maleficent one!!

Then I had my mom ordered this months ago and I got it for Xmas, it's Ursula's seashell necklace!! Thought it was just too cool! Glad I got it when I did because shortly after, Disney sold out of them!

And naturally, I got a TON of B&N gift cards, plus 1 Amazon one too since everyone knows how much I love reading! I think I have enough to get me through the first half of the year! With discounts and all that included!

Post Christmas haul:

What a Ghoul Wants by Victoria Laurie

Blood Born by Jamie Manning

Got this for my Kindle for .99! (Amazon)

Then I received for review from the author:

The Taker by Alma Katsu

Thanks, Alma!

And that my lovelies, was my incredible and amazing Christmas haul! What did you get?


  1. Awesome haul! You definitely have enough to keep you busy next year! Haha, I love getting gift cards to my local bookstore too. x) Ooh, I really want to read Tiger's Curse-- I'm thinking about buying it. And I have Carnival of Souls, but I haven't gotten around reading them yet.

    Happy Holidays!

  2. nice! I can't wait to read this victoria Laurie book, love the series. happy reading!

  3. Wow! You had an awesome Christmas! I want a pair of those pants so bad; I'll be searching for them now. And that necklace! I'm so jealous.

    I also got myself a copy of Blood-Kissed Sky. For a while I've been the only person I know who's read that series, so I'll be excited to see what you think of the sequel, too! I'll be getting to that one soon.

    Have you read Falling Kingdoms yet? It's on my 'maybe buy' list, and I was thinking of purchasing it with a gift card I received on Christmas but I wasn't sure if it was worth the buy.
