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 pretty decent week, one upset came along when I thought I was ordering a book that I already owned--but with a NEW cover--instead I received the same old book with the same old cover that I already owned! The picture on the website WAS the NEW one and yet I got the OLD one!

So yeah, massive upset there! In the process of working out a return at the time of this post!

But on the brighter side of things! Here's the new books that I did get!

From the publisher/authors I received for review:

The Gifted Dead by Jenna Black (ARC)
Dire by Alyssa Rose Ivy (ARC)
Bring Me a Dream by Erin Kellison--already read, reviewed, and loved!
Invisible by Dawn Metcalf (ARC)
Red Blooded by Amanda Carlson (ARC)

Thank You Jenna, Alyssa, Erin, Fire Flower Publishing, LLC, Harlequin Teen, Orbit, & Netgalley!!

Then a book I bought was:

Stone Cold Lover by Christine Warren--true I still need to read the first one (and finish The Others series) but I couldn't pass up the deal I got on it! It was like $5.50!! 
Seraphina by Rachel Hartman--a bargain find at Half Priced Books! And then there's another 20% discount on top that!
Bite Me by Christopher Moore--another HPB find! I read the first 2 books in this series years ago and this became an impulse buy!
 Trial by Fire by Josephine Angelini--keeper copy!

Bookmarks from HPB! The Disney Princesses (older style!)
An angel statue I swear I've seen somewhere...maybe Savannah or Charleston? NOLA?
A Tinkerbell--because there's never too many of those!
and the final one...Eat. Sleep. Read. (Life is simple!! this was my only successful item from the dreaded BAM purchase)

And that was my haul! What did you get?


  1. What an amazing haul, Jessica! The Gifted Dead looks awesome and very interesting. :D I've seen Invisible on Netgalley but not so sure whether to request it or not. I hope it's as good as it sounds. Ha! Seraphina has been on my auto buy list for so long but never got the chance to buy it even if I'm all for dragons. :D

    Have a fund weekend, Jessica!

  2. Invisible is awesome! I hope you enjoy that series Jessica, I love it!

  3. I'm curious about the new black book and I'm starting Red Blooded right now. Happy reading!

  4. The Gifted Dead looks really interesting. Red-Blooded is going to be awesome. Great stack this week.

  5. A new Alyssa Rose Ivy book!! I'm pretty excited cause I love her Hazards series! Can't wait to hear what you think of Seraphina!

  6. Really jealous Harlequin Teen seems to have regulated their netgalley preferences and my request for Invisible got rejected..... seems like i have to wait for the long way route for it :( Anyways nice haul, those book marks look gorgeous and Trail by Fire too. Happy Reading!!

  13. I hope your bookseller corrects the answer! Great books this week, I've seen Invisible floating around but I've never really looked in to it!

    I LOVE the Disney princess bookmarks! I want one in the new style (have you seen the notebooks that Target sells with the princesses on the cover? They're really classy, I wish they had them in bookmark form)!

    Have a good week!

  16. Love your bookmarks!! I'd be annoyed too... I've ordered a book before too and when it arrived it had a different cover. So not cool. Glad you still had a great week in books though! Enjoy! :)

  17. Loved Trial by Fire and Seraphina! And eep, that sucks, I hate when they mix up things like that. B&N did that with a recent order of mine. I was like, dudeeee, I want the series to match?! Anyway. I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a fabulous week :)

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

  21. OOO I see you got a lot of interesting books and some SUPER cute bookmarks!!


  22. Ohhh Seraphina! I need to get my hands on that one. Happy reading!
