Stacking the Shelves--The OMG RT 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!

Since I went to RT last week I got quite the haul!! It's pretty overwhelming too when I look at what I did. I kept telling myself to leave the book signing after I went through, but I went through 4 times! Buying more and more books and other bookish goodies! 

So here's what I got at RT:

Okay group picture since there are too many books to photo them all from Goodreads, same with linking...too many!

So here's what I bought/got at the panels and/or parties at RT:

So yeah, I bought/got all those books and then I bought some clothing...

The item in the top corner is a night shirt that says My Shelves Runneth Over
Then you can see the next two t-shirts, these were from Anderson's
The third one came from a shop at ClubRT that was special to the RT Convention! They had this one and ones that said Readers Gone Wild. Since I am an aspiring author, I went with Writers Gone Wild!

Then I bought these two cameos from this seller who was there last year. He also does these amazing drawings but my wall space is covered with bookshelves and what's not is covered with movie posters and other photos I have no intention of moving.

But anyway, this year I bought a Sagittarius cameo since that's my Zodiac sign and then I guess what we call the Steampunk Octopus? What is this guy called? I know I have two necklaces with him on it already, but this in a cameo and in GLOWS IN THE DARK!! Oh yeah!! And since he had chains this year I just bought them from him instead of going to another store!

I also downloaded Cloud City by Jeanne C. Stein for FREE during the Convention! Glad I brought my computer with me!

And then...yes I have one more RT item! I won this at a panel from Jeaniene Frost:

A $25 e-gift card to Barnes and Noble!! Yay! Money for books!!

So that was my RT haul, now here's my post RT haul: 

In the mail this week came:

 Dead Man's Deal by Jocelynn Drake--a keeper copy since I read it already!
Dead Ever After by Charlaine Harris--a SIGNED copy!

Then for review from the publishers I got via Netgalley:

 Hidden by Marianne Curley (ARC)*

*I actually already read this one! And in 1 day!

Awhile back I won the Fools for Books Giveaway at Gizmo's Reviews, I chose this one:

Wicked as She Wants by Delilah S. Dawson

Thanks again, Shelley!!

And then--yeah, it was a good week--I cashed in some of my Coke Rewards to get one of these, because truly there can never be enough of them:

A $20 e-Gift Card to Barnes and Noble!!

And now I am done! So what did you get?!
