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!

Didn't get too much this week, which is always a blessing and a curse, because it means I didn't add much to the TBR pile...but also I didn't get many new books. So yes, both good and bad!

Basically I got one book for review, and another ARC that I borrowed from a blogging pal--who's the greatest ever for loaning it to me! She knows who she is! ;)

The Lost Boys by Lilian Carmine (ARC)*
After the End by Amy Plum (ARC)

*I always love a good ghost book and thought this one sounded pretty good. It wasn't until afterwards I saw the line about friggin Twilight, so keeping my fingers crossed that this won't be Twilight-y since it is for "the fans of Twilight". Hate when books got promote another read that way...

Then I also got this incredible swag box/pack for being on Jordan Deen's Street Team:

It came in this beautiful hat box and in it was:
Magnets with book covers
Jordan Deen Author magnets
2 necklaces
a SIGNED copy of Breaking Lauren
a T-shirt
A tablet cover 
and lots of other little goodies I am probably not seeing in the pic!

Stick around cause I plan on sharing some of this love!

And that was my haul this week! What did you get?


  1. I'm looking forward to your review of After The End, I've been thinking about maybe getting it when it comes out, but I didn't really like Amy Plum's other series, so I'm still hesitant... :)

  2. Ooh, nice haul! Hope you enjoy your books and swag, and thanks for stopping by!

  7. Small, but very interesting book haul, Jessica! and I like your other goodies :) Enjoy all!

  8. Look at the awesome swag pack! I downloaded After The End last week, and The Lost Boys this week...which I DNF'd. Yeah. I just couldn't. You might like it, though I think it's worse than Twilight, so... I'll definitely have to check back and see what you think of it. Happy reading. :)

  9. I received After the End last week I believe. it looks awesome. The Lost Boys sounds promising but I did wrinkle my nose at the SM comparison. She's not a writer I'd want to be compared to personally. I hope you enjoy it though.
