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'm doing my best to try to be good since my TBR pile became sooo freaking huge after RT and then there was my little bout of going crazy at Netgalley this week...don't ask! ;)

So yes, I need to be good for awhile. At least, as far as I know, June should be good! I only had 2 books that I could readily recall that release that month!

So here's what I bought:

The Dark World by Cara Lynn Shultz--KEEPER Copy! See my review here
The Given by Vicki Pettersson 
Poison Dance by Livia Blackburne--a FREEBIE prequel to Midnight Thief

See only 1 book & 1 novella there for the TBR mountain, not too bad, but...

For review I received:

 Midnight Thief by Livia Blackburne (ARC)
Mortal Danger by Ann Aguirre (ARC)

Thank you Feiwel & Friends, Disney-Hyperion, & Netgalley!

And I'm still waiting on another request from Netgalley that hasn't be answered yet. I rarely check the status of Edelweiss anymore!

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


  1. Ooh, nice haul! I enjoyed Poison Dance and it's a great start to the series - I hope you enjoy too. Thanks for stopping by and happy reading :)

  3. I really like the look of Dark World and I have been seeing it everywhere. I am glad you liked it too! :)

    Mortal Danger has such a creepy cover! I look forward to your review of it! :D

    Thanks for sharing!

  6. JESSICA! SEE THE DARK WORLD?! I adore that book to the moon and back. It is soooo good. And sweet lord *fans self* That boy... *swoons* *falls down from excess swoon-age* Also, Mortal Danger looks all kind of lovely <3
    Happy reading,

  7. I received Mortal Danger this week too. Sounds awesome! The Dark World sounds great too. I'm going to read your review now. :) Enjoy your goodies this week!

  8. I'm very tempted by Dark World. I've seen so much of it I feel like I need to read it! Great Haul! Enjoy your reads.

  9. Midnight Thief and Mortal Danger look awesome, Jessica! Hope you enjoy all! :)

  10. Mortal Danger sounds great! They offered it on Netgalley but I was to late to request it. I hope you enjoy it :)

    I hope you enjoy all your new reads!!

    Have a great week Jessica!!!

  11. Ooh, great haul! I read and LOVED Midnight Thief by Livia Blackburne! It was so amazing!! I really hope you love it as much as I did! And I was surprised, because I didn't think I would love it as much as I did. It starts off kinda slow, but it picks up about 20-30% in, and doesn't stop!!

    I also received an ARC of Mortal Danger by Ann Aguirre but I'm not that eager to start it. It looks okay, it's not something I'm dying to read!

    Thanks for stopping by my STS @ Addicted Readers!

  12. Looks like you have a lot of great books this week! I hope you enjoy reading them. I don't know why you have such a hard time getting approved on EW.

  13. Nice haul! I've been trying to avoid Netgalley for a while myself, it's way to tempting, and I have soooo many books I have to read already. Can't wait to read The Dark World and Mortal Thief, hope you love them!
