Stacking the Shelves--2 weeks worth!

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!

Had a pretty darn good week--well 2 weeks since I didn't do a post last week since I was still out of town--of book getting! Not too much to add to the TBR mountain but didn't come out empty handed, hence, a pretty darn good week(s)!

First off for review from the publishers via Netgalley, Edelweiss and good ol' paperback copy I got:

Cold Blooded by Amanda Carlson (ARC)
The Damsel and the Daggerman by Delilah S. Dawson (ARC)
Chimera by Kelly Meding (ARC)
Kitty in the Underworld by Carrie Vaughn*

Thanks Orbit, Pocket Star, Tor, and Netgalley and Edelweiss!!

Then I got a totally awesome SWAG pack from Darynda Jones since I entered her contest last month. Didn't win, but hey, I love SWAG!!

I loooove swag!! I got an awesome journal with the cover of Fifth Grave Past the Light, a Thank You postcard, a bracelet that says Grim Girl with adorable skulls and crossbones on it ;), booksmarks that feature the covers of all her books for her adult and YA series, a pen and of course the nifty black bag!

Then last week I got a few things as well, such as a SIGNED copy of The Beautiful and the Cursed that I won from a contest at Books of Love! I have yet to read this but I really really want to, because gargoyles rule!!

Thanks Grace and Page, of course!

And I also won another contest at Frodo's Blog of Randomness and got a giftcard to Amazon! 

Thanks Eric!

Then this week I also bought this, it's not book related but still equally important:

This is perhaps one of the best Disney sequels ever and the last one to be released in theaters when it came to animated flicks! You know the Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast and Lion King ones were all direct to VHS back in the day!

And I do believe that's all I got in the past two weeks! What did you get?

Oh and don't forget, today is the last day to enter my AAD giveaway!


  1. Return to Neverland is not just equally important, but arguably more important! I love all things Peter Pan - Hook is still one of my favourite films of all time!

    Infinitely jealous of your giftcard by the way! Oh the books you could buy ...

  13. I fell behind on the Kitty series and probably need to think about getting caught up. Really shouldn't read reviews for these books. Once again, we have some of the same books! Enjoy and have a great week!
