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!

I had a great week! This includes my birthday haul too, plus me and my friend exchanged Christmas gifts yesterday so it's a partial early Christmas STS edition too!

So for my birthday I got, 2 count em, 2 gift cards to bookstores!

Also for my birthday and bookish I got this awesome shirt:

Then I received for review from the publishers:

Captivate by Vanessa Garden (ARC)
Fire & Flood by Victoria Scott (ARC)

Then a book I preordered was shipped early! It was one I already read as an eARC which my review will go up tomorrow, but I got:

Taste of Darkness by Maria V. Snyder

Then I got my Kim Harrison tour t-shirt. Sadly, she won't be anywhere near the midwest, sob, but I do hope to be seeing her at RT this year since I plan on going. Plus I really wanted the limited edition, super cool Free Vampires pin that came with the shirt!

The pin is hard to see, but it's copper and is the F V combo that you see on the shirt. It also came with a bus token for the Hollows! I have a few of these nifty things already, so when I plan my visit to the Hollows, I'll have plenty of tokens! ;)

And then finally for Christmas my friend bought me:

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

Plus a gift card to Books a Million!

What did you get this week?


  1. Awesome t-shirt, Jessica, and Fire & Blood looks promising! Enjoy! :)

  2. Happy birthday and hope you enjoy your giftcards and books. Merry Christmas!

  3. Happy Birthday, Jessica :) I hope it was a great day :)

    Nice haul, and isn't it always such a good thing to receive GC for books? I usually go pretty crazy with those.

    Have an awesome Sunday :)
