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 yet another great week of book getting! Hoping to actually get to my physical books this week instead of all the Kindle ones, I want to actually see my TBR mountain go down instead of the digital books being check marked as read!

Here's what I bought:

Evensong by L.J. Smith*
Possess by Gretchen McNeil
The Mirk and Midnight Hour by Jane Nickerson
Resistance by Jenna Black
Savage by Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguie--this one was soooo hard to track down! Eventually ordered it with The Book Depository and it released last December! Gasp!

*This I am REALLY excited for! L.J. Smith is continuing to write the Vampire Diaries her way as Fan Fiction! As you may or may not know, after Midnight, L.J. wasn't allowed to write them anymore because she wanted the books to go in one direction and the higher ups wanted it to go in another way. So a ghost writer writes them now. But now L.J. is writing them as Fan Fiction, not quite like self-published since the series that is "official" and ongoing is in another direction, but L.J. said on her blog that she would finish up the series the way she envisioned with the Fan Fiction route and Kindle Worlds with Amazon! I am sooo excited for this!!

Then for review I received:

The Forever Song by Julie Kagawa (ARC)


And then I also got this because once again I spent too much on my credit card, but truthfully it was from an exercise machine I bought which practically earned me it:

B&N Gift Card!!


  1. Wooow! You got a great week.
    Nice books and awesome that your received an ARC.
    I hope you enjoy reading all of your new books.


  2. Great Haul. Possess looks so creepy and good! Have a great day and thanks for stopping by my blog.

  3. Seems like a good week is behind you. :) 'Resistance' is my favorite!

  4. I find that interesting about Vampire Diaries. I haven't read them since middle school but I remember loving them. Also... I can't believe that she being the author isn't allowed to write them how she wants. That doesn't even make sense to me. Imagine Stephen King, or Charlaine Harris being told how to write their books. She must've signed the rights away or something I would think?

  5. Nice haul. I'd love to read Possess :)

    Happy reading!

  13. Awesome haul, I have Mirk and Midnight and look forward to reading it! Enjoy and have a wonderful week!

  14. Awesome haul. I almost got Mirk and Midnight, but decided against it. Interesting about L.J Smith wanting to go one way and the higher ups wanted a different direction. Congrats on the giftcard.

    Enjoy Jess!
