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 it was an interesting week what with the holiday and Black Friday! Perfect for book-getting! Even made an order with the Book Outlet for the first time! Yay for coupons!!

I had a most excellent haul at Half Priced books with the $5 gift for being among the first 100, sadly not a $100 winner, but a $5 freebie all the same bought me a free book! Then there was the coupon inside to get another $5 off of $25 which I ended up spending!

Check it out:

So here's what I bought: 
Earthquake by Aprilynne Pike--I haven't read the first but when I saw this, I debated on it...then I needed another couple of dollars to get my $5 off $25 so into the bag it went!
Low Red Moon by Ivy Devlin--this was the very first ARC I received from one of my blogging friends. I don't think the sequel ever made it to shelves, but I saw the beautiful red cover and decided to buy a long overdue keeper copy!
Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini--UK Copy!! I stumbled upon the UK copy and immediately added it to my bag! It was the first one to be added since I started alphabetically! Hahaha!
Abandoned by Meg Cabot--x2!! In 2 different sizes too! One was a bargain copy but yet again UK copies that I couldn't pass up! There were 3 of the bigger one and seriously moments after I put mine in my bag the other 2 were gone! Then I found the smaller one in the bargain section!
BOOKMARKS! Tinkerbell and Toy Story! At .50 it's hard to pass these up! I love bookmarks & these are good ones too! Normally like $4 at the bookstores!

I also got a calendar that gives me coupons for every two months of the year! Like Jan & Feb, March & April, etc. DEAL!

Then I also ordered two weeks ago that finally arrived:

The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen--a mixup ended with me getting 2 copies! Was kinda surprised by that! I have plans for the second copy! Muwhahaha!!

Then I also bought from the sale at B&N:

Silver Shadows by Richelle Mead--SIGNED copy!! B&N had a lot of signed books! Surprisingly I had a few of the others offered, so I decided to go with this one! So when I get to meet her again, I should have the right amount of books to be allowed signed! ;) Plus I had a 30% off coupon + my member discount and another 5% with my credit card this one was a deal!!
The Little Book of Answers by Doug Lennox--from the bargain table! Thought this would make a great aid to my Random Thursday posts
That's a Fact Jack: A Collection of Utterly Useless Information [updated] by Harry Bright & Jakob Anser--yet another bargain find to aid in the totally randomness of Random Thursday posts!
The Element Encloypedia of Fairies by Lucy Cooper--an intriguing book that I thought could make for good "research" material when I get back to writing...and incorporating fairies into the story! 

So really after all those books, I only need to read 2! The Random Thursday ones will be read as I create posts and the "research" book will be searched later as needed! AND the rest were just new copies or different editions of books I've already read! Score!...I think?!


  1. Nice haul, Jessica! It's always nice when you get books on sales, right,I did that too, but I ended up just adding and adding books last week. I went a little click-happy as you know.
    I hope you'll enjoy all your new stories :)

  2. Massive book envy right now. :D I read the Abandon series by Meg Cabot recently and I enjoyed it - though I can see its flaws and how some people might not like it.

    Happy reading! ^_^

  3. Oh they're all new to me I confess but I hope you'll like them. Happy reading!

  4. You did make some finds as you shopped this week. I didn't go to any stores this whole weekend. I don't like crowds and really didn't need anything. I haven't gotten my Christmas lists yet and don't know what anyone wants. Happy reading!

  5. So many books! Abandon looks really good.Enjoy!

  6. Cool bunch of books and I think I have only heard of one of them. :) Hope you enjoy your new reads!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier!
    Books, Movies, Reviews. Oh my!

  7. I used Book Outlet for the first time too! I was good and only bought 3 books though. :D I saw B&N had a lot of signed books too, but I refrained from getting any. Happy reading Jessica!

  8. The Barnes and Noble sale was so awesome! My brother and I got there early and grabbed a few signed copies, but not nearly as many as we wanted. I've never heard of Book Outlet, but there's a lot I don't know yet!

  9. Man your HPB has all the good stuff, I wonder who the lucky fellow is with the 100 dollar giftcard! :) I'm happy you're finally getting to read Queen of Tearling, and I hope you enjoy it! (Here is praying that the EW Gods approve your requests as well!)
