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!

So yeah, I added yet again more books to the TBR mountain this week! Why I thought I could get caught up somewhat in June I had no idea!! It's laughable now that I said that earlier this month!

Anyways, here's what I bought:

 Captured by S.J. Harper--already read and reviewed! One less to the TBR mountain!
Dead Girl Walking by Ruth Silver--a kindle sale for .99!
Shattered by Kevin Hearne--a SIGNED B&N Copy!
Blood Bath & Beyond by Michelle Rowen--because I apparently bought book 2 at RT!

Then I got some swag from Gretchen McNeil and Amanda Carlson:

There's postcards, bookmarks, a button & a bag, coaster, bookmark, stickers and signed post card!!

Thanks Gretchen & Amanda!!

Then awhile back I won Becky at Book Bite Reviews pre-BEA contest!! I chose a SIGNED copy of Talon!!

Talon by Julie Kagawa (ARC)

So it was mistakenly signed to Jennifer! Whoops! It's still a TALON ARC!!!

Thanks Becky!!

Then for review from the publisher and author I got:

Dark Metropolis by Jaclyn Dolamore (ARC)
Queen of Hearts by Kristen Painter (ARC)--already read and review to come next week!
The Beautiful Ashes by Jeaniene Frost (ARC)--I actually got 2 of these, because while at RT, I picked 2 out of the Goodie Room, but they were such a rough draft that Jeaniene said to send them to her and she'd send the proper ARC out! And I got them this week! So look for a giveaway of the extra soon!

Thanks Disney-Hyperion, Netgalley, Kristen, & Jeaniene!

So that was my week, but at least I read 2 of the novellas that I got! And Dark Metropolis is my last Netgalley read (at the moment!) then I got that outlet cleared up, just 1 of Edelweiss to read and quite a few real ARCs/review books to read still and there's still some coming! What did you get?


  1. Wow, so many great books! Especially Talon sounds really good. Enjoy reading everything!

  2. Great books! I would love to read Talon. I hope it shows up on NetGalley nearer to publication date. I don't have many NetGalley ARCs but I have quite a few from Edelweiss. They are September and October releases though. Enjoy all your new books. Happy reading!

  3. I heard Talon is AMAZING so please let us know how it is!! Can't wait to hear your thoughts :)

  4. Captured is very popular this week. Talon is going to be amazing. I hope you love everything you got.

  18. I swear I commented but maybe I got distracted by goodreads as I went to add Talon on my wish list! I'm usually not into dragons but I've loved everything I've read of Kagawa's so i'm willing to give it a go! I love that cover too! And yaya for signed books!

  24. You picked up some great looking books, Jessica! And congrats on the swag and book wins! :) I'm jealous of The Beautiful Ashes. ;) Enjoy your week!

  25. YAY, Shattered!!! I plead broke so I'm waitlisted for it at the library :) I'm all happy he's hard cover now but that just breaks the bank for me ;)

    Awesome win on Talon, too!! I can't wait to get my hands on that, too. It'll probably be a library read, too (the perks of working in said library and saying, "um, order this STAT!") :)

    Have a great week, girl!!

  26. :O:O Talon looks so good! I really like the look of a YA books with dragons. I will definitely be picking it up as soon as I can!

    Thanks for sharing & enjoy your books! :)
