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!

April, so far, has been really good to me! Here's what I got this week:

Sea of Shadows by Kelley Armstrong--already read and reviewed here
Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins
A TOTALLY awesome new bookmark!

And then I received my Street Team package from C.C. Hunter:

 Reborn by C.C. Hunter (ARC)
Bookmarks, camera case, keychain flashlight, notepad & pen, and nail files!

Some Street Team goodness from Jordan Deen also came:

On my wrist are 4 rubber bracelets that have Jordan Deen and her website on them
SIGNED bookmarks
Magnets and a button!

I also received for review:

Tiger's Promise by Colleen Houck (ARC)


And finally a nonbook item, but still bookish that I got is:

Yet another t-shirt from Shirt.Woot! Yes, I own wayyyy too many t-shirts! I even have a bag of them that I hope to turn into a quilt one day. Just haven't gotten around to it yet!

But let me explain why I felt suckered into buying this one! It says: Best Time Traveling Machine EVER! And as you can note the person is reading a book surrounded by a ton of books! 

Now I bought this because, when I read, I get sucked into these other worlds! Sometimes they are like ours and other times not. And one uses a time machine to travel back in time. And in a sense, you could travel to another world...in another time. Or something like that! That's basically how I roped myself into buying it! You can use the machine to travel to other times and you can read books to travel to other worlds! And at only $12, it's hard to pass up! And that includes shipping and tax, or there's no tax really since it's $12!!

And then there was one more t-shirt that I had designed myself at CustomInk. Really, I saw it on another t-shirt, but I just didn't like its arrangement and the picture, so I created my own version:

It says, in case you can't read or see the pic for whatever reason: You can't buy happiness. (then there's a picture of a stack of books) But you can buy books and that's kind of the same thing. I plan to wear this on Saturday at RT this year. I always try to wear something bookish related and since the few author t-shirts I have are from authors not in attendance, I decided a new shirt was highly necessary.
Truer words have never been spoken! ;)

And yes, I now own wayyyy wayyyyyyy too many t-shirts!

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


  1. Awww so many wonderful things this week! I hope you enjoy everything :).

    My Showcase Sunday :)

  2. I'm excited to read Rebel Belle and Sea Of Shadows! I hope you enjoy your new reads :)

  3. I love t-shirts, too!!! I used to go for the unique shirts from places I've been but now I'm getting into crazy, smart shirts now. I love Woot! t-shirts and my favorite to wear to work is my Adventure Time "Algebraic!" t-shirt. I get so many compliments from patrons at the library, and mostly the older, 20-30 yr olds!!

    I still need to read CC Hunter's books but I own her older series (d'oh, I really need to get to it!) and we have them all at the library :) I'll get on it sooner rather than later!!! Great street team gear for both your teams!!!!

  4. Wonderful books and stuff this week! I enjoyed Sea of Shadows and hope you do too. Happy reading.

  5. omg that T-shirt! I love it :)!!! I need to buy more shirts like that!

    I keep seeing Rebel Belle around and I really like the sound of me. I don't like the cover for it though :/ I read a great review for Sea of Shadows a bit back and it looks really good! :) xxx

    My Showcase Sunday :)

  6. Love your t-shirts!! I'm a t-shirt kind of girl myself, but I don't really own a lot of "cool" ones. I received Sea of Shadows from Edelweiss - but haven't read it yet. I hope you enjoyed the books!

  11. You have such cool bookish stuff. Yay for Reborn, I know you were excited for that one. I want to read Rebel Belle!

  12. Well, thanks a lot. I now have a new Best Time Machine Ever T-shirt on the way that I hadn't planned on buying. :D I love Shirt.Woot.com, and any time I see a reading related shirt I have to have it, so you just fueled my obsession. I love your other shirt too, have fun wearing it.

  13. Wow. Some amazing new items there. I need to get into Kelley Armstrong's books more. Hope you have a great week!

  14. OMG! You got me addicted to shirt woot! So inexpensive and such awesome shirts. I've even designed some trying to win the derby that they have for designers to have their stuff for sale on the site. I have won, but it is SOOO much fun :D I LOVE this one too!! I can totally see why you'd get it. I feel the same way about reading a fantastic book. Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven.
